A hoppy tripel. Not a style that I'm a huge fan of. I generally tend to think that the hops overpower the best things about the Belgian styles, rather than accentuating the good flavours like they do in a black ipa. This is a good example of hoppy tripel done right. Great blend of tripel sweetness and ipa hoppyness. However, you lose those beautiful banana and clove characteristics that tripels are known for in a barrel of hops.

Bigger beer. Sweetness reminiscent of apple juice. Pleasant crystal clear gold. Lots of pepper and clove. It’s alright, but I’d like more attenuation and depth. Maybe this would have been better fresh with more hops? Bottled 9/15, reviewing in late 2/16.

Pretty good, but the bitterness got to be overpowering by the end. There are a lot of Belgian aromas and flavors as soon as you open the bottle, but the amount of bittering hops completely overpowers everything, turning what was already a behemoth of a beer into a bit of a bitter beast.
