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.

jcnielsen (2187) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - DEC 12, 2013
Sampled on tap at Nebraska Brewing Co. Pours a hazy golden color with white head. Belgian yeasty, clove, spicy, citrusy, and hoppy flavors. A little different than the barrel aged version. A little boozy, I like the barrel aged version a lot better.

Lubiere (10139) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 9, 2013
A hazed golden ale with a thin lacing white head. In aroma, sweet fruity malt with light candy sugar, coriander and citrusy pulp. In mouth, a nice spiced sweet malt with coriander, curacao, nice alcohol warmth, very Belgian. On tap at Breukelyn Bier Merchants.

b3shine (5558) - Indiana, USA - SEP 26, 2013
750 ml bottle to taster (shared by alexsdad06). Looks good for the style; a fairly transparent burnt orange with off-white head that dissipates into lacing. Smells solid; hoppy and spicy with a bit of tartness. Tastes like it smells, but less balanced. Average (at best) on the palate. Alright, but odd.

Shag (2622) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - SEP 21, 2013
Interestingly odd beer here. This poured a golden color with a white head. The aroma contains citrus, spices, and perfume. The flavor is more boozy than bitter with some white grapes, citrus, and a creamy mouthfeel. A tripel and IPA hybrid going on here but leaning more toward tripel IMO. Overall pretty good beer.

Poured from a keg at Nebraska brewing company. Yellow pour. Very fruity and bitter but good. Balanced well between a IPA and a hef

tmoreau (2465) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - JUN 11, 2013
Shared 750 ml. bottle, poured to snifters with a cloudy orange tint, modest layer of white, bubbly head foam, and spots & streaks of lacing. The nose was herbal, floral, lightly woody and earthy. The flavor presented moderate, somewhat lingering hop bitterness that was tempered nicely by pleasant, light malt sweetness and mild esters. A little less than medium bodied, with well hidden alcohol presence.

Nice sweet belgian esters up front, citrus and floral hops, bready malts. Pours golden, nice head, nice clarity. Belgian yeast, grapefruit, floral notews, bread. Nice citrus mixed with yeast. Drinkable at this abv. Nice stuff

TomDecapolis (4500) - Milton, Delaware, USA - APR 18, 2013
Pours a hazy deeper orange with a large foamy lacing white head. Aroma of tropical fruits, peppery Belgian yeast notes, peaches, mixed citrus and I’m getting a tart cherry/Brett nose out of this beer. Along the lines of a Jolly Pumpkin beer. Flavor of peaches, tropical fruits, peppery Belgian yeast notes, very dry and lots of citrusy hop character. Getting the Brett character in the flavor too.
