COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
(Previously known as HopAnomally)
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.

This Nebraska Brewing series has undergone some changes to the recipe and name over the years, but it’s 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. There’s a bit of dank funk. Soft, foamy feel. It’s 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.

Tastes very floral, with perfumy rose petally notes, somewhat sweet, with hops, white pepper, orange marmalade, grapefruit. Smooth and complex flavor, with well hidden alcohol.

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

Total surprise! Is there a soft IPA? This is it! Subtle fruit, boozy, but very drinkable! Great, well crafted brew!

Draft freebie over at Henry to the J .. Vibrant gold yellow .. Foam was massive .. Belgian yeast and medicinal notes .. Boozy and a bit rough, but it was different .. . . I have a fat head.
