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.

On tap at Doherty’s. Served in a tulip glass. Deep honey color. Aroma of floral and spice. Flavor is deep and sweet slightly fruity at first, with plenty of rounded bitterness on the backside. Spruce and honey notes on the finish. Complex and interesting. Very Nice.

Wow... This is an impressive brewery. Another winner. Pours a clear golden. Dank hop aromas, a touch of bubblegum too. Nice sweet Belgian characteristics with a hop finish. Awesome stuff.

(Growler thanks to bu11zeye) Pours clear yellow with a very nice head full of big oily bubbles. Nose of delicious citrus hops and spices. Taste is creamy bitter hops, perfectly balanced with the malt. A spicy linger. I thought this was awesome.

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.

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
