Viper666 (2763) - Quebec, CANADA - OCT 28, 2010
Bouteille 330ml. De couleur ambrée-orange et voilée. Nez fruité (agrumes, léger d’ananas et d’abricots, notes de pêches et de mangues), de houblon herbeux (menthe poivrée) aux notes résineuses avec des traces citriques (pamplemousse), moyen de caramel sucré, léger d’alcool avec des notes d’épices (poivre) et avec des traces de sucre bonbon. Moyennement ronde en bouche avec un pétillement moyen ainsi qu’une texture légèrement crémeuse et aux petites notes résineuses. Goût fruité (agrumes, moyen de mangues, léger d’ananas, notes d’abricots, traces de pêches) accompagné d’une amertume de houblon herbeux (herbes fraîches et léger de menthe poivrée, une amertume présente toute la gorgée) et des notes épicées (poivre, traces de coriandre) lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute un goût de caramel sucré, de grains de malt sucré et un léger goût de pain. Parallèlement, l’on retrouve un moyen-léger goût d’alcool en arrière-goût durant toute la gorgée puis en finale l’amertume de houblon revient en force en étant plus herbeuse et aux notes asséchantes et résineuses. Post-goût moyen-long et aux petites notes sèches, moyennement amer de houblon herbeux aux notes résineuses et aux traces citriques (zest de pamplemousse) avec un léger goût d’alcool et de fruits (zest d’agrumes).

Drake (7926) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - OCT 26, 2010
Served from a bottle at the Top of the Hops Beer Festival, Charlottesville, VA, 9/11/10. Pours an orange-amber color with a thin white head. Decent head retention and lacing. Aroma of peach, plum, bitter hops, some floral notes and caramel. The taste is peach, plum, caramel, pear, floral hops with a bitter finish and some boozy notes. Medium bodied.

BoydJustitz (58) - Maryland, USA - OCT 24, 2010
Pours hazy light amber. Large white-yellow head. Aroma of hops, citrus, flowers. Not nearly as bitter as a typical IPA this Belgium style triple IPA is very mellow and complex in flavor, with malt tones and not dominated by bitter hops. Very pleasant with no alcohol burn. Dry finish.

beersearcher (2295) - Glendale, California, USA - OCT 24, 2010
Rare on tap treat. The fine folks at Ojai Beverage had this on tap! I would just call this a regular IPA. Good Amount of bitterness but not west coast bitter. A gentle hop bitterness wafts over the palate.

ElGaucho (2156) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - OCT 23, 2010
Draught muddy pig 2010 Belgian beer fest. Apparently the first time available in the mnpls market. Nothing if not molasses in the nose. Murky dark orange. Excellent lace. Pepper, molasses, sweet. Not my favorite. For folks who like the molasses thing. A quality beer that perhaps deserves a higher rating but unjust didn’t enjoy it that much.

18/10/2010 - 33cl bottle @ home

Pours a cloudy deep orange to hazel coloured beer, creamy rocky head (adhesive). Aroma of pineapple, passion fruits and citrus. Some sugar. Taste is very fruity, some alcohol warmth, spices. MF has enough carbon, full body. Aftertaste holds bitter hops but still very fruity. Ends dry with some citrus and gingerbread.

Wow, I understand why this has won the people’s prize at ZBF! Very nice brew!

Barrelbelly (596) - BELGIUM - OCT 18, 2010
Small head, lasts medium long. Aroma of apricots and coriander. Very nice carbonation which makes the beer taste somewhat lighter. Well balanced hop, coriander and apricot taste.

5000 (6025) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - OCT 17, 2010
Bottle:   Thick hazy amber, large frothy off-white head, fairly nice lacing. nbsp Sweet powdery citrusy floral like nose. nbsp Some honey too. nbsp Has a fresh floral smell that reminds me of some candies. nbsp Soft sweet hops on the tongue. nbsp Its like a candish IPA. nbsp Has this sweet powdery fruity like hop flavor. nbsp I was expecting more of a barnish musty example. nbsp Body and mouthfeel are moderate. nbsp Its smooth, and not really biting for a Triple IPA. nbsp Sweeter, less hoppy and musty than I expected. nbsp The fruity candyishness is interesting tho. nbsp Feels like more of a Pale Ale to me.
