(Previously known as Hop God) 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.

wedgie9 (2697) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - APR 5, 2013
Tasted on draft at the 2011 East Nashville Beer Festival. Pours clear, dark orange with an average white head that slowly recedes to average lace. The nose has a nice caramel base with plenty of piney green hops and spicy Belgian yeast, and a light touch of onion that I have gotten off of certain hops before. The flavor is much the same with the spicy yeast character and the bitter hops balanced well by the caramel malt, and that little hint of onion on the back of the palate. The body is full with average carbonation and a long spicy yeast, bitter hops, and hint of onion finish. I really like this beer, and realize that the onion thing is something that I perceive on certain hops.

This Nebraska Brewing series has undergone some changes to the recipe and name over the years, but its remained consistently awesome. The Belgo/Cali hybrid works extremely well here. Just as it should, this tastes like Tripel spiced with Pacific Northwestern hops. Hazy orange-gold color. Champagne-like yeast, earth, and hop resin on the nose. Citrus, pine hop characteristics up front. They give way to vinous grape and stone fruit. Theres a bit of dank funk. Soft, foamy feel. Its my kind of Tripel: tropical, bright, and bittersweet.

750 ml bottle shared with the group from notes. Pours a mostly clear orange amber color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have a mix of sweet malts, caramel, honey, Belgian yeast, citrus and tropical fruit, floral notes, light spice, strange but interesting.

AirForceHops (6952) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 31, 2016
750 ml bottle. Slightly aged. Dark hazy golden color, thin lasting head. Aroma is candy sugar, white grapes, peach and a nice lingering Belgian yeast.

Normally this style is pretty difficult to pull off but this Brewer does a nice job of a hybrid style. The hops are fruit ordinated with the Belgian yeast showing a lasting presence throughout the sip. Floral hop bitterness that ends quickly. Body is medium with the bitterness slightly taking over the yeast. Nice brew
