COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
(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.

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.

January 9, 2012 tap at Saucer. Hazy yellow orange pour with some head and lacing. Aroma is hoppy, citrus and fruity. Taste is pretty much spot on with aroma but throw in a little spice to finish.

Nickls (2535) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - MAY 6, 2012
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.

Growler courtesy of bu11zeye. poured light gold with a white head. aroma of pine, citrus, some spice, and lemon. flavor was pine, spices, citrus, and lemon as well. had a light body with low-medium carbonation. i rated this one as i was getting ready to leave and may have hurried through it. i believe it was better than my rating shows. would like to have the chance to try again.

Nose is alcohol, honey, limited hop presence though some spice. Flavor is alcohol (solidly boozy) with some caramel. Hops present themselves more as bitterness than floral.

GG (2332) - NorCal, California, USA - OCT 26, 2014
750ml bottle - Aroma - mango, peppers, vanilla, lemongrass and orange juice...pretty extravagant Appearance - bright golden body, clear with a fluffy 4-finger pearl white head, good lasting power and nice lacing Mouthfeel - prickly, medium bodied, medium-high carbonation Flavor - grassy, green mango flavors, bitter black walnuts, finishes with an herbal bite. Tasty! Overall - extremely overpriced, but super tasty. Knocked down a mark for the sticker price."

Sampled @RBWG. Pours murky gold with a small white head. The nose is spicy yeast and hops. The taste is light funk, yeast and tart hops. Interesting brew.
