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.

Bottle. Hazy variegated golden amber color, large thick cream colored head with decent lacing. Aroma of vanilla, lemongrass, light pine. Taste is vanilla, stone fruit, grass, pine. Definitely a big beer, good bottle to share.

On tap at the Foundry: pours hazy pale golden, minimal bubbly white head that settles to a ring. Nose is pineapple, wheat, Belgian yeast, definitely smells like a Tripel. Rich bodied. Some fresh green hop notes that unfolds a grainy, Tripel beer that has some nuances that are unique. Solid BPA ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This is a BIG beer. Very heavy, doesnít drink as well as it could. But hop character is very good. This is my first offering from this brewer and I like it. Iíll keep my eye out for these guys.

On tap. This drinks like an american hopped belgian. I am not a fan. Iíve had better experiments in the Belgian IPA category, Good malt and hop balance, but the flavors and aromas didnít mesh for me.

On tap at GTMW. Poured cloudy, lighter peach with a nice beige head. The aroma was sweet and warm with apricot, pale malt, and honey notes leading.. peppery accents.. just a touch too sweet. The flavor was on the sweet side as well, with apricots and other light-skinned fruits leading.. warm peppery notes plus some tangy fruit skins around.. finished hot with spicy hops and alcohol over bready malts. Heavier-bodied with high bitterness on the palate.. good feel and flow.. I enjoyed this.

Pour on tap at Avery IPA fest, hazy yellow pour with white head, aroma brought notes of pepper, white grape, peach, slight biscuit, hints of grass, pine, sweet orange and caramel notes as well, overly ripe tropical fruit slightly come in as well. Taste is a mix of sweet orange, tropical fruit, white fruit, touch of peach, biscuit, earth, grassy notes, finishing sweet, slightly bitter. Tasty!

On tap at the Inaugural Boulder IPA Fest. Pour is hazy lemon peel with a one-finger white head. Lemon peel, pepper, spicy hops, banana, and esters in the aroma. Taste is biscuit, banana, spice, floral hops, and grass ending moderately bitter. Medium body with medium carbonation. Tasty stuff. Nice!

When I think of good beer, I donít think of Nebraska, but these guys did it again. Hoppy high % yet easy to take. Lemongrass, a bit yeasty and a standout citrus makes this a winner.

Pouring at GTMW 2012 Cloudy straw colored pour shispy white head. Simple aroma west coast IPA not much of the beglian coming through. Overly grassy acidic taste w/ some graham crackers in the finish. Average palate, not very good.
