App-Lighter than I expected from what the people at the brewery said. Golden Straw like color with a small white head, very appealing since I knew although it looked like a american light lager it wouldnt taste like one.
Aroma- Awesome, pure greatness. Apple brandy and slight yeasty bread with a hint of american hops
Mouth-Slight carb which I love and thin enough to make it easy drinking but full enough to prove its quality.
Taste-Well Rounded awesome apple taste, balanced with good malt and american hops. The base Xtra Gold is still there with a solid apple tartness. Kind of a sourness to it which makes the beer complex while still drinkable.
Overall- I just love it and everything Captain Lawrence has done thus far. There DIPA is one of the east coasts best if you ask me and this is the first apple brandy beer I've had and I cant see it being second to any other.
Side Note- Should def not be classified as a Triple, The base beer is an American Triple and this is and american sour aged beer. New category should be made lol if not switched cause ppl may get the wrong idea and not want to try this beer.

Bottle: Poured a hazy golden color ale with a nice foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of lightly sweet Belgian malt with light apple brandy notes. Taste is a very drinkable mix of Belgian malt with light residual candi sugar notes and some light Brandy notes also noticeable. Body is full with good carbonation. I quite enjoyed that one with loads of nice drinkability notes and the Brandy notes rounding off some of rough edges.
