12 ounce bottle into chalice, bottled on 4/10/2014. Pours moderately hazy/cloudy bright gold color with a 1 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with some light streaming carbonation. Aromas of big lemon, tangerine, pineapple, apricot, banana, pear, apple, clove, pepper, herbal, grass, cracker, bread, candi sugar, light bubblegum, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast, citrus hops, and pale malt sweetness; with great strength. Taste of lemon, tangerine, pineapple, apricot, banana, pear, apple, clove, pepper, herbal, grass, cracker, bread, candi sugar, light bubblegum, and yeast earthiness. Good amount of earthy yeast spice on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, tangerine, apricot, banana, clove, pepper, herbal, grass, light bubblegum, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice complexity and robustness of fruity/spicy yeast, citrus hops, and pale malt sweetness; with a great malt/yeast balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, crisp, and slightly sticky/bready mouthfeel that is great, Alcohol is well hidden with only a light warming present after the finish. Overall this is an excellent tripel style. All around great complexity and balance of fruity/spicy yeast, citrus hops, and pale malt sweetness; and very smooth and crisp to sip on. A very enjoyable offering.

Just found this beer at my local House of 1,000 beers. Pity its over 7 months old I can see the sediment. Still I purchased the single for 4 dollars.

A - Well I do get a solid inch of head making for some decent lacing. The color is now a hazy yellow amber with a ton of carbonation bubbles. I do enjoy how that sediment was more of a powder than chunks.
S - even though its well aged I can get a decent selection of citrus like hops along side of mild fruity yeasts and some bready crust. Smell is full with little ethanol burn.
T - Well it is a very tasty triple. I get the hops which work wonders to prevent the yeast from getting too sweet and fruity, then typical bubble gum like sweetness followed by a more assertive bitter finish rather than a dry one. Like it a lot.
M - Best part the ABV is super hidden and it still taste like a triple not just another DIPA.

Overall a solid 4 rating on this one its just a notch above Flying Fish's version but I can't rate it any higher because of its availability it will soon be gone. Shame.
