On tap at Stone Brewery Bistro and Gardens. Hoppy and a bit funky aromas. Not a triple. Hazy grapefruit coloured. Well hopped, dry finish. Somewhat complex and unique. Bit above average mouthfeel. peteinSD (1469) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 18, 2012
On tap at Stone. Clear golden yellow pour with a slick of white foam. Aroma is sweet with faded hops perhaps a grape like character and an underlying clove smell. Taste is sweet malt, a bit of alcohol, candied sugar, and citrus. Bit of a tangy and sharp finish from the citrus and alcohol. Appropriate mouth feel for the style. This tasted much better than it smelled. Good beer. elihapa (1554) - Honolulu, Hawaii, USA - JAN 15, 2012

Bottle thanks to a generous California trader whose name escapes my head. Pours a hazy golden orange with a near white head that lasts throughout the beer. Aroma has a combination or citrus, caramel and toast with a bit of backing oak. Flavor is full starts with sweet grains and caramel with a bit of light fruit and citrus in the finish as well as a hint of oak. craftbeerdesign (2254) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JAN 6, 2012

The more I try with The Bruery, the more I enjoy the beers they make. I wish their distribution was a little bit better, but when I can find their beers...I’ll buy ’em. The aroma on this beer was grapefruits, yeast rolls, a little alcohol, and light straw. Flavor was centered around the hops, so it was more of a Belgian IPA I thought. Some honey/apple sweetness shows up, light oak/earthyness (mustyness?) and more hops. Really nice. Damico (3147) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 27, 2011
Pours deep, orange golden amber with a decent white head on top. The aroma is delicious, a sweet balanced tripel with the citra hops shining through deliciously. The flavor is similar, sweet, light syrupy tripel yeast flavors with a fruity and lightly bitter hop ending. JoeTheYounger (1183) - Lake Arrowhead, California, USA - DEC 24, 2011
Hazy golden pour from bottle. This was sweet with hints of pepper and some oak that meld well into the mix. Easy to drink.
