COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Volume 5: This new age beer style is a fusion of two great brewing traditions that are worlds apart - a hoppy American Double IPA and a classic Belgian Tripel. Beware the Gnome in the funny green hat!

From Westmeister. Thanks! A: Burnt orange color with a thin, white bubbly head. Decent legs. N: Pronounced pine and Belgian yeast. Some bubblegum and clove. A hint of banana. Grass and bread. T: Very, very bready and sweet. Lots of sweetness and very little hop bitterness. This is definitely closer to the Belgian tripel than the DIPA. M: Medium body. Alcohol is very well hidden. O: No idea how to properly rate this one. On one hand, there’s little to no hop presence, on the other hand, it’s much closer to the Belgian trippel than many of the other American renditions of the style. So, it loses points with me for the former, but this is actually pretty decent with the latter.

Tobin_James_05 (11) - Georgia, USA - AUG 4, 2013
Poured from a growler into a pint glass. Appearance- hazy reddish amber with fading head. Aroma-fruity, bread, slight hop Taste-yeasty fruity Belgian up front with hoppy finish that isn't very bitter. Balanced and unique. Palate-light and bubbly, dry at the end. Overall-a good hybrid beer that delivers what it intends-a good experimental satisfying beer with an identity complex. Would drink again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pfunk1976LS (7) - Texas, USA - AUG 3, 2013 does not count
Excellent example of Belgium IPA style, balancing sweetness of Belgian yeast with hops of IPA that does justice to both.

From a bottle. Pours hazy copper with a thin foamy white head. Tastes smooth, light, crisp. Like creamy hops, molasses, hints of citrus. Light body and low/medium carbonation. Smells fermented, with hints of grapefruit, hops, toffee.
