Style | ABV
Belgian IPA |  10.00% ABV

Availability: Year-round

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.

3.96/5  rDev +3.7%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Poured from 22oz bottle into 250ml Delirium Tremens tulip

Appearance: Hazy golden-amber color with a large orange-tinted white head that dissipates slowly and leaves behind a nice ring of lace.

Smell: Melons, grape, and candy aromas dominate with some floral hints.

Taste: Begins with melon and grape flavors, rounding out to sweet Belgian-style candy flavors. Finish is yeasty with a slight herbal bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Medium to heavy slick body with an even slicker finish.

Overall: Not necessarily the most memorable beer, but very good overall. Could do with a touch more bitterness, but maybe I say that because I have never been the biggest fan of candy flavor in beer.

Serving type: bottle
