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.

On tap at Quotations in Media, during their 12 beers of Christmas event. On paper, this beer is right up my alley given my affinity for both IPAs and Belgian Tripels. But admittedly I guessed at most of the rating above because this was one of my last beers on a long evening. So I will need to try this one again soon....

UPDATED: DEC 24, 2011 Draft, pours hazed gold with white head. Nose has big spicy yeast and coriander. Flavors have sweet orange and tropical fruit, spicy yeast and sweet candy sugar. 3.4

12/23/11, draft at the brewery, 24oz for $6 and it went down easy, pretty solid hoppy triple, lots of citrus fruit working perfectly with a spicy yeast profile, alcohol is in check and this never becomes too sweet. Really exactly what Haymarket is going for. Very well done. 3.9

Draft, pours a golden body with a full white head. Nice hop tones in the aroma, citrus, fruit and a sweeter honey tone. Dusty earth tones a fruit sweetness and a sticky warming. Feels to sweet and boozy despite the fragrant hop tones.

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.

Location: Sampled at the NY Brewfest on Governor’s Island, 6/19/10

Aroma: The nose is has some hops to it, pine, spice, grass, and some citrus

Appearance: It pours a somewhat cloudy golden color with an off-white head

Flavor: The taste combines the spicy malts with a bit of hoppy bitterness

Palate: It has a medium body and a more then average carbonation to it

Overall Impression:
Overall, I thought this beer was plenty solid, but not overly great. Just a solid and drinkable brew. I’d drink it again.

The appearance is clear gold/orange white head. The aroma is fruity belgian yeast, spicy, bubble gum. The flavor is fruity bubble gum, spicy, belgian yeasty. The finish is spicy, sweet, citrus. Medium in body, syrupy mouthfeel. Decent, interesting, not worth as much as they charge for this beer.

This is an amazing beer. Hop God is a very appropriate name since it is worthy of the gods. This is a beer from the brewery that is less than 3 years old. The beer they are producing is fantastic.
Smells of Pine forest, Citrus fruits, earth, Yeast and some banana and a bit o spice. Pours a very deep but bright gold with a great white thick head that last the whole time you drink your beer. Which is not long because it is so good. Almost full body with ample carbonation and a very crisp but smooth finish. Flavor is wonderful. One of the best IPA and the best Belgium style IPA I have ever had. Just full of hoppy goodness. Pne, Citrus, Spice, some sweetness but a great hop punch at the front and the end.. Amazingly Balanced and wickedly delicious that hides the 9.2% well...I will drink this again very soon.

deyholla (12439) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 17, 2010
Sampled from the tap at the 2010 GTMW. Poured a near clear gold with a near white head that dissipated lasted throughout the beer. Aroma was full of pine hops with a hint of citrus but a bit one note. Flavor was more complex with pine to citrus with a bit of spice and grain coming out in the finish.

JoeMcPhee (9586) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 3, 2010
Hazy golden pour with a thick white head. The nose is quite fruity with a bit of soft malt sweetness. A little bit of vanilla comes through with this one. Light berry and a kiss of honey as well. Bitterness light and there is an odd sort of metallic character that I don’t really care for. Sticky and a little bit chewy. A touch of earthiness and an astringent fruitiness on the back. Comes across as quite medicinal.

omhper (25811) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUL 27, 2010
Draught at Blind Tiger, New York, NY. Cloudy amber, small head. Rich aroma of marzipan and orange. Sweet and full bodied wtih clean, elegant malt, warming alccohol, grapefruity hops and evident almondy yeast character. Distinct, somewhat resiny bitterness. An intense, tasty beer.
