COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Formerly "Trebuchet".
Somewhere there is a Belgian Monk who’s head is spinning. A Belgian brewer would never put this much hop into a beer. However, we are not Belgian are we? We can do whatever we want. This is an unconventional beer. Belgian candy sugar, classic Belgian yeast, and a boat load of hops, plus some dry hopping in top of that. A very unique take on a Double IPA that will make it stand out in a crowd.

A unique double IPA. It's a Belgian style brewed beer, but with lots of hops (mostly Citra). For a double IPA it's very smooth and not overpowering from a bitterness standpoint, they use Belgian candi sugar and it mellows out the hops a bit. The appearance is pretty standard, nice golden color with a medium head. At 9.5% ABV it can get the party started fast, but because of the smoothness it could end it quick to. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured from the four pack of cans, I’m not a big fan of Belgians but the Belgian inspired stuff is very good, hops add a lot to this style and this one is good.

wlajwl (6877) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - APR 20, 2016
Aroma is Belgian yeast, grapefruit and kind of odd hot funk. The flavor is grapefruit, spices, toffee, funk/Belgian funk, malts and a mix of bitter and very slight tartness in the finish. Kind of odd but grows on you.

3.7
smroush (286) - Michigan, USA - MAR 25, 2016
Aroma heavily dominated by the hops,neither pine/spruce aroma most prominent but also some lighter citrus (orange and grapefruit) aromas. Malt adds some mild bready flavors. The color is a light to medium amber orange, with a fairly heavy white head. Slightly hazy. Clear sweetness between the alcohol and the candy sugar. Lots of bitterness from the hops. Medium body; slightly sticky texture; slightly lively carbonation; long finish, starts sweet, then the carbonation and finally the hops bitterness. Overall a pretty good beer; the candy sugar adds a bit of balance and interest to the very large hop load. However the candy sugar is a simpler balance than you find from malts in some of the very best Imperial IPAs.

Pour on tap at the brewery, clear golden orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of biscuit, bread, piney notes, some nice orange, some Belgian yeast, white fruit, touch of spicy notes as well. Taste was a mix of white fruit, spice, touch of banana into spice, pine, slight grass and citrus notes, touch of bready notes, finishing fairly bitter, slightly sweet.
