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.

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 (1549) - 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 (1324) - 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 (5785) - 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 (7313) - 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.

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!

This is a BIG beer. Very heavy, doesn’t drink as well as it could. But hop character is very good. This is my first offering from this brewer and I like it. I’ll keep my eye out for these guys.
