COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An artful creation which began with our HopAnomaly Belgian-Style IPA, enhanced by a 6 month maturation in French Oak Chardonnay Barrels. This version of Hop God is a fascinating, big, bold Belgian-style Tripel hopped in very high amounts to concentrate citrus, grapefruit and floral aromatics in the nose. The addition of Chardonnay barrel aging adds further dimension and oak tannins to an already wonderfully complex Ale – bringing to mind tropical fruits and peach. We know of nothing that compares – enjoy!

B-. Pours a murky rust orange color with white head. The dry finish I believe comes from the champaign and I don’t particularly care for it

On tap at Omaha Tap House 2013. Light copper color with an off white head and decent lacing. The aroma is hoppy and dank with a bit of grape. Flavor has some floral and herbal hops with even a bit of mango and and some oakiness from the barrel. Medium/full body with moderate carbonation. nice complexity to the beer and interesting.

3.2
katrinaez (2355) - norristown, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 24, 2015
Not as great as hoping. Chardonnay is light, but there. Hops are very light considering the name, assuming to allow for the chardonnay that is delicate. Very bubbly, but it’s not champagne so it’s odd. Tart. No aroma. Light yellow and bit of hazy. Bottle
