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.

Growler thanks to bu11zeye and the brewers. Lots of carbonation left on this growler. Huge white head with some great lace left behind above the clear golden body. Aroma of pine, orange, citrus, light grass and alcohol. Taste is caramel, alcohol, grass, hops and a bit of spicy yeast. Light bubbles and a dry mouthfeel.

On tap @ the brewpub, chalkboard lists this as 9.2%, 101 IBUs. Clear honey golden with a small white head, fading to a thick ring. Big hoppy grapefruit and mango up front, lighter floral hops with some peppery Belgian yeast behind. There are also some light herbal notes. The flavor is quite dry and peppery with some added clove and honeymoderate alcohol presence. Bitterness peaked at a 5 in the finish. Medium-full body with moderate prickly carbonation. Pretty good beer.

UPDATED: OCT 17, 2009 On tap at the 2009 Crescent Moon Extreme Beer festival. Pours a cloudy dishwater gold with a big white head. Amazing aroma of pepper. Very belgian in flavor with lots of oranges, coriander, and grapefruit. Super fruity. UPDATE: In the bomber bottle at the 2009 Crescent Moon Summer Beer Festival. Pours tallow gold with a thick white head. This is a crazy beer. It has too much of everything. It tastes like pineapple juice. Totally chaotic brew. I really approve.
