COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Batch #100 is one seriously hoppy triple pale ale! A beautiful burnt orange hue and a underlying caramel flavor to balance out the hop bitterness. Aromas of fresh cut tangerines and mango from citra and simcoe hops. The rest is up to your imagination.

old rate. This one was just off, super super boozy and malty, no hop essence.

Tap flight at the brewery. Reddish amber colored pour. Thick egg shell ring with bubvles the size of tapioca for a head. Very hoppy aroma. Earthy, tropical fruit hops. Taste is big and hoppy, even hoppier than the nose would indicate. Excellent lace on the glass. Taste is kerosene, juicy tropical fruits, and honeydew. Sweet malt holds it together. It’s syrupy but not cloying. The sweetness fades and the hops take over to give he finish an herbal and aromatic quality. Some heat but for the most part this beer drinks smaller than its ABV. Pretty balanced all things considered.

On tap at Logan Square brewpub. Malty sweet and a fair amount of German hop bitterness. Too hoppy for my taste, especially for a supposed tripel.

Tasted on tap at Revolution. It was a dark orange with a frothy white head. A subtle but delicious aroma of citrus hop. A bold yet smooth taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Had it on tap at Revolution Brewery. Poured a rich clear amber hue with a light head. Very hoppy sweet with a bitter finish and an aroma that tickles the nose.

On tap at Revolution...A dark clear copper pour with some nice tope head, ok retention but good lacing...Good god this smells awesome!!! A floral/grassy mixture on the front, but a great sweet base of caramel with hops, a little alcohol, reminds me of a light sweet dipa...The taste is equally outstanding its grassy almost like a daisy cutter but the sweetness brings so much to the table and makes it so drinkable. Hops are more an accent and present bitterly on the finish. No alcohol at all on nose or taste, insanely drinkable at 9.6%. This is awesome and you should rush to get some.

Draft on tap at the brewpub (Chicago, IL). Pours a pretty near transparent dark amber with some fiery orange notes, a big head that dissipates to a ring and laces small. Aromas are juicy fruity hops, lemons and grapefruit mesh with some peaches, really nice but the sweet malts to kick it up, caramel and toffee behind. Initial is heavy bodied, some floral and citrusy grapefruit hops mix into a big malt presence, sweet toffee and caramel combat, sweet grains are a little overwhelming, a touch of corn. Perhaps they made this too big.. Meh.. A sweet and bitter combatative finish. Not bad, but not good
