3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This brew is a clear orange-amber color with a medium off-white head that recedes steadily. Stringy lacing. Aroma of hops and yeast plus a touch of malt. Light to medium body with flavors of citrusy hops, sweet spices and yeast. Some malt in the background. The finish is mildly spicy yeast with a subtle hops aftertaste. Decent overall.

Sam Adams may make the best Tripel IPA, but I do not think I am a huge fan of this style. Not that belgium beer and hops canít coexist.......just think that american hops just dont mesh well with belgium yeast.

Another Samuel Adams rarity. Definitely an American brewer because I havenít been impressed with any of their "Belgian" styles
