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. Orange pour with a small quickly receding white head, albeit great lacing. Aroma is soap, bitter, floral. Flavor was bitter hops and some fruit. Great carbonation.

Pours a deep yellow. Nose is dank hops, sticky pine, and sweet caramel. Flavor is a nice sweet caramel, resiny pine, citrus and bitter hops finish. Very good IPA.

UPDATED: DEC 24, 2011 Draft, pours hazed gold with white head. Nose has big spicy yeast and coriander. Flavors have sweet orange and tropical fruit, spicy yeast and sweet candy sugar. 3.4 12/23/11, draft at the brewery, 24oz for $6 and it went down easy, pretty solid hoppy triple, lots of citrus fruit working perfectly with a spicy yeast profile, alcohol is in check and this never becomes too sweet. Really exactly what Haymarket is going for. Very well done. 3.9

LilBeerDoctor (3505) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 20, 2011
Growler from my local Whole Foods. Pours a cloudy orange with a very small ring of white head. Aroma of tangy citrus, Belgian yeast, candi sugar, tropical fruit. Flavor is very citrusy and fruity on the initial sip (sweet mango!) followed by light hop bitterness, bready malts, and a touch of yeast. Plenty of Belgian character coupled with the citrusy/fruity notes of an IPA. Good stuff! 8/4/8/4/15 [3.9/5]

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.

lithy (2996) - Capital of Appalachia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 27, 2011
Hazy orange-yellow, whitish cover. Aroma is fruity, pear, apple, hoppy, sweet. Taste is slightly spicier, still sweet, with fruity esters, pear especially, some apple skin, nice hoppy finish. A bit sweeter than Belgian examples like Houblon Chouffe or Hopsinjoor but still very good.

kassner (1372) - Wexford, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 20, 2011
On tap at Mad Mex and the better of the two Triple IPA’s on tap by a clear margin. Dark honey color, nice head, also well balanced so that both the hops and the belgian yeast compliment each other, and plenty of content. the alcohol is dangerously not obvious.

halfonit (1183) - Fall River, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 31, 2011
Pours a hazy deep gold color. Aroma is of hops, bark, citrus, a little earthiness, and grass. Flavor is similar with a slight sweetness that comes through in the back end. That might be Belgian yeast I taste. Overall this isn’t too bad.

nuplastikk (4698) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 28, 2011
Tap at Dexters. Hazy orange tan. Big, creamy, off-white head. Fruity taste and aroma, some citrus, maybe even guava melon. Sugary malt depth, maybe some candi sugar or Belgian yeast notes. Not overly astringent, smooth melon tones, tropical. A pretty good Belgian IPA, would have benefited from a little more lively carbonation. Guave, honey, toasted malt. Well done.

onceblind (4512) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 13, 2012
At Avery’s 2012 Strong Ale Fest. Murky light golden with a thick pillowy head like a Hefeweizen. Light estery aroma like a hefe too, kinda yeasty and biscuity with a touch of bubblegum..but also with this floral/grassy hop aroma. Taste is yeasty biscuit with a dash of wheat and bubblegum, with a hoppy flavor of grassy floral herbal bitterness. Like a hefe/IPA mix.
