(Previously known as Hop God) 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! Aromas of grapefruit, citrus, and piney hops & tastes on the palate that tend toward pineapple, mango, and sweeter fruits. A big beer that was inspired by the West Coast – yet brewed by a Midwestern brewery not content with the status quo.

Poured From the Tap into a pint glass

The color is a bright hazy yellow/orange with two fingers of thick foamy white head and some thick lacing left on the glass.

The smell is citrus but with a touch of earthy funk aroma. There is some navel orange or tangerine here in the nose along with earthy grass aroma.

The taste is tangerine and a touch of banana with a earthy, herbal flavor. The hops here have some bite but it seems less sharp then expected where the fine malt bill shows that this beer has more balanced then I anticipated. At times there is a bitterness that threatens take over and dominate with a spicy flavor that was interesting. The malts makes this beer work as touches of Belgian malt flavor rears it's head keeps things from being one sided.

The feel of this beer is medium bodied with a crisp, drinkable feel. The ABV here does give a slight kick but this is a beer that can be sipped and not rushed.

On-tap 4/13/2014 at Doherty’s East Ave Irish Pub, in Pawtucket, RI served in a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a deep gold color, with a short off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains citrus fruit, caramelized malts, some spice, Belgian yeast and a good amount of hops.

T: The taste starts out sweet with flavors of caramel and citrus. Then some alcohol sting and some spice come in. The hops presence is strong but subdued. The breadiness from Belgian yeast and a hearty but not too heavy malt character provides some balance. The after-taste is slightly sweet.

M: Crisp and a little smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: Tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, good kick, good representation of style, I picked up more Tripel qualities than West Coast IPA qualities, overall a good beer to drink for a while.
