A beautiful golden crossbreed of a Belgian Tripel and a West Coast IPA. Combining the best attributes of each style in a remarkable way, this beer explodes with spiciness, tropical fruit, and an intense citrus bitterness that will leave you begging for more! Hopped with Warrior, Chinook, Centential, and Cascade hops.

bottled. pours golden orange with a champagne like bubbliness. white foamy head. aromas of yeast, citrus and raisin. sweetness overshadowed by a moderately heavy sourness. could use more time in the bottle to mellow. medium bodied thin mouth feel lively carbonation. finish is also long and sour. finishes with a touch of bitter hops. hopefully some more bottle conditioning will bring the hops forward.

Draft at Z man at the deli. Pours Golden with a quarter inch of white foam that leaves a bit of lacing in the glass. Nice Belgian yeast aromas on the first wave. As the beer warms up I get more of the piney hop thing. The taste kind mashes up the Belgian thing and the hop thing with the hops winning. Finish has some nice bitterness to it. It’s an interesting mash up that’s mostly successful.

Rich gold pour with a perfect white head. Man this beer kicked ass. Its so deliciously hoppy and fruit at the same time. The citrus hops and perfect herbal hoppiness give way to an insane amout of juicy fruits and perfect malt balance. I was blown away by this. This brewery is fun! I need to visit.

At FWIBF. Pour is dark yellow gold and clear. Aroma is more on the Belgian side with sweetness, fruitiness and a little hop character, taste has some spice, fruit with some good citrus taste. A tasty blend of Belgian and IPA. I am a big fan of this beer.

Love this beer. More belgian than IPA. Pours cloudy yellow with large white head. There’s some hops in the background but this is dominated by strong fruit and sweetness. Also some citrus. Finish is dry and somewhat bitter. Mouthfeel is large and formidable.

This is interesting... the sweetness of the Belgian style contrasts well with the bitterness of the IPA. The sweetness shows up first, then the hoppiness comes through on the back end. Pours golden and cloudy with a large head.

Tap. Not much head, very hazy vibrant marigold hue. Lots of tripel notes in the aroma with light fruit notes and spice along with vanilla hints. The bitterness does come in but it’s very grassy and almost gin bitter in some respects. Medium to lighter body with ok carbonation.

Serving: 750 ml. bottle. It pours a deep gold orange with a fluffy white head of foam. The nose is a mix of Belgian yeast, florals, and light pine. The flavor leans a little more towards the Belgian side with nice yeast and slight citrus notes. The hops are there too adding in a little pine and some grass. Light to medium body with higher than average carbonation and a medium finish. Definitely not bad but I would like just a bit more hop presence from something called “Hop God”.

Tasted at 2nd East Nash Beer Fest. Pale orange in color. Hazy. Loads of fruit. Grapefruit and other citrus flavors. Soapy. Some detergent. Loads of hops. The tripel characteristics aren’t shining through on the flavor profile for me. Good beer though.
