Muffin Top combines the attributes of a Belgian Tripel with a huge burst of American hops. Intense flavors from the Belgian yeast, reminiscent of candied fruits, mix with the hop bitterness and sweet orange peel to create a unique take on a Belgian-Style ale.

RichTheVillan (7206) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 23, 2013
Bottle from Cotteridge Wines; clear honey coloured pour with creamy off white head, fruity and piney hop aroma, quite pine hop forward for a Belgian style, quite sweet oranges, a hint of bitterness, some caramel, really impressed with this.

beersearcher (2382) - Glendale, California, USA - AUG 20, 2013
Another in a stretch of IPAs that are overly caramel tasting. Hops are second fiddle behind that and the Belgian notes are a distant third. The balance seems too tilted here.

A quality brew with intense flavor and wonderful unfiltered appearance! But---the alcohol was omnipresent! Belgian yeast and spice flavors were submerged!

superspak (4997) - Michigan, USA - AUG 11, 2013
22 ounce bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 6/3/2013. Pours lightly cloudy bright orange amber color with a 2 finger dense and fluffy cream colored head with great retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of orange zest, lemon zest, grapefruit, tangerine, pear, banana, clove, floral, grass, pepper, pine, honey, light caramel, light bubblegum, and yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of hop, malt, and yeast ester notes; with good strength. Taste of orange zest, grapefruit, lemon zest, tangerine, pear, banana, clove, floral, grass, pepper, light pine, honey, light caramel, light bubblegum, and yeast earthiness. Fair amount of pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of citrus, citrus zest, light fruit, banana, clove, pepper, floral, grass, honey, light caramel, light pine, light bubblegum, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a while. Very nice complexity and balance of hop, malt, and yeast ester flavors; with a great malt/spiciness balance and zero cloying sweetness after the finish. Medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a lightly slick and fairly sticky mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a small warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a damn nice imperial Belgian IPA. All around nice balance and complexity of hop, malt ,and yeast ester notes; and very smooth to sip on for 10%. A very enjoyable offering.

NikkTwist (2893) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 8, 2013
Draft at Farmers Cabinet. Cloudy orange amber pour with a short thick white head. Lots of dark honey flavors. Sweet, but bitter with earthy peppery hops. Nicely blended but feels forced.

fraternie (998) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 23, 2013
Yeasty and almost overwhelmingly sweet, with candied orange peel and grapefruit notes that are backed up by a subtle hop bitterness. Refreshining in the sun, with the abv covered up well.
