COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Chardonnay Barrel aged version. 750ml bottle only. This version of Hop God is a fascinating, big, bold Belgian-style Tripel hopped in very high amounts to concentrate citrus, grapefruit and floral aromatics in the nose. The addition of Chardonnay barrel aging adds further dimension and oak tannins to an already wonderfully complex Ale - bringing to mind tropical fruits and peach.

hay, nuts, resin, grass, citrus, leaves, woody, alcohol, A solid outing from Nebraska Brewing Company. Smooth and drinkable despite the high ABV. Worth $30 a bottle? Maybe once in a while.

ken1 (1636) - DENMARK - AUG 16, 2013
A fruity "belgian" aroma. Flavor is an odd mix of ipa bitterness and belgian sweetness with a dryness from the barrelaging. Color is cloudy orange with a white head.

Rasmus40 (16677) - Beder, Aarhus, DENMARK - AUG 16, 2013
Bottle courtesy of Ken1. Hazy orange with a lasting off-white head. Aroma is sweet, malty, caramel, yeasty, fruity, white wine and moderate hoppy - citrus. Flavor is very sweet and rather bitter. Dry and rather bitter finish. Very Belgian indeed. 160813

pdx77 (1483) - Oregon, USA - JUL 20, 2013
From bottle at 2013 Portland International Beerfest. Deep golden color. Aroma is of a citrus lambic. Taste is intense tropical hop, but incredibly balanced by the barrel aging, giving it a nice woodsy note. Quite impressed by how smooth and flavorful this is.

after4ever (7411) - Brier, Washington, USA - JUL 5, 2013
750, capped. Pours a cloudy medium amber with golden bronze edges. Dense creamy whitish head. Big bright lightly citric nose showing white wine, backed with nice floral and peppery/estery complexity. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Floral, white pepper, and lemony chardonnay notes on the mid palate. Could drink this over and over without a doubt.

traviskurowski (27) - - JUN 26, 2013
Bottle. Tastes like an IPA sour--Chardonnay yeasts bringing the citrus flavor out of the 108 IBU hop flavor. Cloudy in appearance, orange color, thick foamy head that relaxes after a bit. Big mouthful. Lovely. Recommend, recommend. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap, clear yellow pour with creamy white head, smells Chardonnay barrel aged, tastes peach, apple sweet and and a tart aftertaste that leaves something a but funky, different

JohnnyJ (5330) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 5, 2013
Sample at Oakquinox 2013. Sweet fruitiness, mild citrus, muted hops, white grape, light oak, sweet muddled malts, and a bit grassy. Not really my cup of tea.
