Notes/Commercial Description:
Muffin Top combines the attributes of a Belgian Tripel with a huge burst of American hops. Intense flavors from the Belgian yeast, reminiscent of candied fruits, mix with the hop bitterness and sweet orange peel to create a unique take on a Belgian-Style ale.

Tried this at the weekend. I was at the Brewdog bar in Shoreditch and brought a bottle of this to take home. Another fine example of those crazy American IPA's. Full bodied with incredible malty sweetness, then a tsunami of hop explosion across the palatte. The sweetness reminded me of the Belgian Tripel Karmeliet. Great beer, would definately drink it again.

From the 650 ml. bottle. Sampled on August 13, 2014.

The pour is a somewhat cloudy medium amber color leading up to a large, long-lasting off-white head.

All kinds of bright hoppy aromas on the nose mainly of pine, grapefruit, floral, and resin. These mingle delicately with the toasted Belgian biscuits one expects from a Tripel. For 10% the booze is not to be found.

Full body.

The taste is about what the aroma predicts it will be with a definite grapefruit citrus character, floral and pine, and a lesser malt sensation that almost tends to outlast the hops on the finish.
