COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Quite strange. Does feel like a blend of an average citrus IPA and a Belgian brew with some wheat and peppery yeast character. Doesnt seem quite balanced, more of an odd Belgian IPA.

ryanfolty (2455) - Bourbon County, Minnesota, USA - JAN 9, 2012
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 (2426) - 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 its very grassy and almost gin bitter in some respects. Medium to lighter body with ok carbonation.

rudolf (2360) - Buffalo, New York, USA - SEP 26, 2010
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.

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."
