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.

Leighton (13821) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 19, 2010
UPDATED: MAY 26, 2011 Bottle while at Rattle n Hum. Pours a slightly hazy gold with a strong, fluffy white head. Nose of oak, Belgian yeast, funk, some slight hops. The Belgian funk strikes my palate the most, but there are also some acidic citrus notes - pineapple and orange - along with some wine alcohol flavor. Finish is lightly bitter with some mild tartness, and dry. Medium bodied with average to low carbonation. Pretty nice.

Bottle @ Oakquinox 2013. Golden amber pour with a white head. There is a really nice fruit forward aroma to this. Peach, apple, and some pineapple. Floral hops, wine, bread, and a touch of oak. The flavor is a bit on the astringent and bitter side. Some decent fruit character, mild wine, and a touch of oak. Lightly grassy and floral.
