Notes/Commercial Description:
A beautiful golden crossbreed of a Belgian Tripel and a West Coast IPA. A remarkable explosion on the palate with spiciness, tropical fruit, and a firm citrus bitterness that will leave you begging for more!

I went and had a growler filled with Hop God at a local grocery store, with no previous knowledge of the brew....and wow, quite a pleasant surprise I must say. A bountiful citrus and complex hop aroma is noted up front, followed by visualization of a crystal clear amber pour with an expected two finger head. Taste is overtly malty and sweet with a smooth hop finish, noting bold notes of tempered red fruit, typical of Belgian yeasts yet perfectly complementing the grain bill which I assume included the infamous Special B malt. Palate is thick and reminiscent of an imperial stout, which is always a plus with a crystal clear IPA like this (in my book). Pleasantly surprising. Overall, worth the price and I will definitely buy more. This may even out-compete Surly Furious in my book.

Served to me in a tulip glass, this beer makes about a finger thick bright white head and the body is hazy with a copper color.

The aroma is citrus with heavy doses of caramel.

The taste is of grapefruit, melon, and candied sugar.

Feels moderately carbonated, full in body, and warming in the end.

Enjoyed on-tap @ the East Nashville Beer Festival in East Nashville, TN. Tapped from the Hop God handle into my 8oz Yazoo Festival Glass.

Aroma- The aroma starts with a big time Beligan and floral hop aroma. A fairly strong yeast strain is present as well. Tons of fruit and the presence of malt is well blended.

Appearance- Received with a 1 finger head that has average head retention. The color of the body is deep golden. Leaves suds behind.

Flavor- The hop flavor in this one is medium but very sweet and fruity. A bit of spice and yeast come in throughout the flavor and helps characterize this one as a Belgian IPA. High Bitterness level at the finish.

Mouthfeel- Medium-Full Bodied, Medium Carbonation, Smooth, and finishes with TONS of fruit and hop flavors on the palate.

Overall Impression- A great brew from Nebraska. I have never purchased a bottle of this b/c of the price point but now interested in splitting again with a friend. I highly recommend if you have a need for a perfect example of a Belgian style IPA.

APPEARANCE: Very bright, hazy yellow-ish orange with a lovely quarter-inch of white head on top. The head collapses relatively quickly, but leaves some solid lacing.

SMELL: Huge citrus. Orange peel dominoes with a little banana in the mix.

TASTE: That orange flavor is still dominant with a little corriander, banana and clove behind it. Very well balanced with a nice hop bite, but some sweeter caramel malt and fruity yeast.

MOUTHFEEL: Medium body with a sweet start and a nice dry finish.

OVERALL: This is a beautiful example of the style. It's what an IPA should be and it's what a Belgian beer should be. Not quite sure how they made both work so well in one beer, but I'd have to say this is one of the better Belgian-Style IPAs I've had.
