3.56/5  rDev -8.7%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a cloudy dark golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of malts, fruits, yeast. Taste is light hops, malts, spices, a touch of fruit. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a solid beer.

A: beautiful golden color, hazy, hefe look to it. S: classic Belgian banana, cloves, but not over the top. T: well balanced bittering and maltiness. Boozy burn at the finish.

4.5/5  rDev +15.4%

Poured from 12 oz into snifter.

Pours a dark, clear gold with fine white head and good lacing.

Smell is light pilsner malts, spicy and fruity belgian yeast, and a bit of fruity hops.

Taste is mild but very pleasant. The light maltiness gives way to a nice bit of spice from the yeast, and is carried away by the slightly bitter, earthy hops.

Feel is creamy and medium body with thin but full carb - much bigger feeling beer than I expected.

A lot of the beer is in the front half, but this really leaves me coming back for more. Nice and full for a tripel, although like other reviewers mentioned the IPA is underplayed. The ABV is very well hidden - I could pound these pretty easily. This would be a great easy drinking high ABV summer beer. I really enjoyed this, but was expecting a tripel rather than an IPA (hadn't seen "IPA" on bottle until I poured it.)

3.88/5  rDev -0.5%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

A: Hazy golden hue topped with 1.5 inches of white foam which fades down to a swirl across the top and a quarter inch along the glass

S: A great deal of bready Belgian yeasts foremost. Wheat, coriander, orange, a touch of apple. The backend has a touch of indistinguishable hops.

T: The same spices kick in quickly giving way to a touch of fruit before yielding to a standard pilsner. It leaves a taste of stale hops.

M: Light body, crisp with moderate carbonation, very easy to drink especially given the high alcohol, finishes dry.

O: Its a good warm weather higher alcohol beer. I wish the hops were more present considering how much they hopped it. The pilsner malts made it a bit strange, but the Belgian yeasts were spot on

3.84/5  rDev -1.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from a 22oz. Bomber into a pint glass

A: Hazy light brown with nice finger width of head that dissipated quickly

S: A slight citrus smell with heavy malt, didn't know this was a belgian IPA

T: Almost no hops, but very smooth and a touch sweet, was disappointed in this brew

M: Good carbonation and very smooth

O: A little disappointed in this, for a Triple IPA i got almost no hops, would not buy again.

4.21/5  rDev +7.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

12oz Brown bottle with twist off cap and best by date of 01/26/15. Poured into a tulip glass

Appearance: Pours a clear gold with 1 and 1/2 fingers of white head and great lacing

Smell: Yeasty phenols

Taste: Starts off with belgian-yeast spice and then the hops come forward in the middle leading to and citrus and piney finish

Mouthfeel: Medium with good attenuation and finishes quite dry

Overall: I'm impressed, a triple and an IPA are too very different styles and this beer manages to balance both quite nicely. There almost no hop presence in the aroma but only comes forward in the finish. Provides great balance between two different ends of the style spectrum.
