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.

Leighton (18668) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 27, 2010
Growler. Pours a gorgeous, bright gold hue with a soft, pure white head. Nose of banana and yeast with just hints of hops. Flavor is more Belgian than IPA, but there is certainly some citrusy hop bite. The commercial description is right on in that this beer "will leave you begging for more!" Really damn good, and the 9.2% is nowhere to be seen. Mouthfeel is medium-light with decent carbonation and mild warming. Great beer.

GTMW 2011. Poured a hazy copper color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate complex citrus hop aroma. Medium body with slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium citrus bittersweet finish of moderate duration. This is a good drinkable brew.

It is definitely a Belgian IPA that hinges on the yeasty spice and esters rather than the hops.
