4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Decisamente IPA, e di classe.....ambrato con riflessi aranciati, schiuma pannosa e persistente. Naso intenso con simcoe su tutto....frutti tropicali, scorza d’agrumi e malti tostati.....secca ma bilanciata da malti dolci, chiude lunga, pulita e non troppo amara.....buona buona...
Tap at Bir & Fud, Rome. Pours hazy dark amber with an initially huge thick domed off-white head, slowly diminishing. Aroma of hop, citrus, malt, sweet caramel, yeast, bread and a touch of honey. Quite heavy sweetness, light bitterness. Medium to full body, sticky texture, soft carbonation. Pretty good beer with the triple/IPA working for me. FatPhil (16893) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 26, 2017
330ml bottle (Sip, Tallinn)Marduk (8206) - Reval, ESTONIA - MAY 26, 2017
Dishwatery aroma. Pale orange, brief head. Soapy taste. Full palate, pleasant carbonation, but soapy harshness is negative. Alcohol covered behind the harshness. Messy brew. Not an abbey tripel by a million miles, this is an IPA brewed with a belgian yeast at most.
330ml bottle (thanks FatPhil). Clear amber color. Small size, white head, stays. Caramel, fruity, mango, apricot, sweet, yeasty in aroma. Sweet, mango, caramel, cake, faint hidden lemon cake and malty in taste. Lemon cake and sweet malts in aftertaste. Little bit of alcohol is coming out too, but it’s not disturbing. Why is it Abby Triple when label says Triple IPA? Are you drunk or what? martjoobolut (4947) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 30, 2017
Bottle, BB 09.17, L9216 (from SIP, looks more like rb:124464,but label doesn’t say it’s not regular so here it goes...). Pours golden-amber. Aroma is hoppy, floral, soapy, fruits, citrus. Belgian yeast. Flavor is sweet and bitter, fruits, citrus, grapefruit, sugar, Belgian yeast. Finish is dry bitter. Overall: good enough. tanel025 (199) - ESTONIA - MAR 24, 2017
Aroma is citrus, fruits, hops. Light yellow beer with white head. Taste is malt, hops, fruits, pear, lemon. Little sweet, medium bitter. Aftertaste is bitter. Very good beer, it adds tripel and IPA altogether and the result is very enjoyable. Easy to drink. Should suit for both IPA fans and also Tripel fans.

Citrus and yeast like a perfect tripel, golden with a thin white head very persistant, medium body, medium carbonation, more hoppy in the taste...very balanced and good interpretation.. rayaron (1927) - Kfar Saba, ISRAEL - MAR 4, 2017
Bottle sample at a tasting at Lior’s place. Thanks Lior. Cloudy orange with off-white head. Yeasty aroma with notes of citrus and some butter. Yeasty flavor, sweet and alcoholic with some citrus, bitterish and spicy. Medium-bodied. DSG (15119) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - FEB 25, 2017
Bottle sample at a tasting at Lior D’s place. Thanks Lior D. Clear golden. Aroma of yeast, fruity esters, some hops. Sweetish flavor with fruity esters, bitter hops, and alcohol. Medium-bodied. CEZ (414) - Milano, ITALY - JAN 8, 2017
Golden body, creamy white head. Sugar, candied fruits in the nose balanced by a hoppy floral touch. Taste is more or less what you would expect - somewhere between a hoppy tripel and an imperial IPA. Belgian character evident up front before the hops kick in for a bitter finish. Good balance and mouthfeel. A successful hybrid.

Keg at Bir & Fud, Roma, 23/09/16.
Golden orange with a decent off White head.
Nose is candied fruits, orange peel, light yeast tones, faint hop bill, floral pinch.
Taste comprises sweet malts, caramel, candied orange peel, perfume, candyfloss, faint spice.
Medium + body, fine carbonation, light warming alcohol in the close.
Solid for style, the hop interplay prevents this beer from becoming too sweet.
