COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A beautiful golden crossbreed of a Belgian Tripel and a West Coast IPA. Combining the best attributes of each style in a remarkable way, this beer explodes with spiciness, tropical fruit, and an intense citrus bitterness that will leave you begging for more! Hopped with Warrior, Chinook, Centential, and Cascade hops.

GABF 2009. Pours clear dark yellow with a small, fizzy white head, somewhat diminishing with fair lacing. Aroma is heavy malt (cereal, grain, meal), heavy hop (flowers, grass, pine), heavy yeast (horse blanket, barnyard, earth) with notes of pear and peach. Medium bodied, gritty texture, lively carbonation, and a bitter finish. Average duration, light sweetness, heavy acidity and bitterness.
