Classic triple body, orange and yellow hazed to nearly opaque looks just about perfect here. Head and lacing are rather lacking...or heck almost non existent. Edit, second pour form the bottle gave a nice inch of white head. I'm not sure if there's more yeast in the bottle or it was just a faster pour. Still not much in the lacing department.
Caramel malts with clove spices and a very subtle hint of hop aroma in the finish. Not a lot to speak of.
Given the simple nose, I'm rather pleased with the intense and complex flavors. Pear fruit flavor complemented by clove spices and caramel and cracker malts. There's a nice finish of hops, nothing to justify calling it a hoppy triple, but still well done.
I can't find an abv number on the bottle, but this one is clearly a big heavy beer. There's a good bit of carbonation, but the bite of alcohol is a good bit stronger than the carbonation.
A well made triple have a new brewery to be distributed here in Kentucky. Nothing special here, but I can't see anyone a fan of this style being disappointed.

Bomber bottle (bottled apr/14) poured into a stemmed tulip glass, colour is a clear light gold. Creamy white head with really solid lacing and retention.
S - slick candy sugars, lemony yeast, pecan. Grassy and piney hop notes, a bit of a full bodied belgian yeast character, spicy and robust. Quite light overall with some floral character.
T - an immediate rolling flavour cascading in. Strong full sweet belgian yeasty notes, and also a grassy hoppiness. A really intense flavour, lightly caramel, malt sweetness, lemony, spicy yeast, peppery, and a subtle smoky foresty character. Piney and a bit herbal as the flavour transitions, coating with a bit more robust oiliness then dries out to an even balanced finish. Flavour is a bit more aggressive than some of the belgian tripels, but pretty things makes it a controlled rollercoaster.
M - Quite full but balance is done really well with so much going on. Starts with more sweet alcohol then gets more hoppy and bitter, some of the yeast comes into play as well helping to dry out the finish. Carbonation is on the light side but the alcohol is a positive aspect here, though it does make itself known, it doesn't mean this doesn't drink really sublimely. A big beer, but it satisfies.
Haven't had many tripels in awhile, but fluffy rabbits is excellent, and a good example in general of american brewers staying relatively true to style while upping the assertiveness of these beers. This is a complex melange of full bodied yeast, sugary alcohol, with also an assertive floral/piney/herbal hop character, all woven together to make for an intense but memorable brew.
