look: 4 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Poured from a 750 ml bottle into a pint glass

A: Nice light brown hazy color with small amount of off white head that dissipated very quickly

S: Holy $%$ the nose on this beer is awesome, can really smell the hops, citrus and floral

T: Good solid Tripel, caramel flavors abound with a little malt, no real hops translate from the nose though...

M: low carbonation, but enough to give this beer a a little zip

O: My second American Belgium hopped Tripel... I'm getting a bit more accustomed to what this style is attempting to do, and while I like this more than Cocodrie... I'm just not a huge fan of all the malt with no hops.

Hmmm, 12% Tripel IPA hybrid, color me interested. Brought back from San Diego about month ago or so... didn't see the IPA part then but it has been fridged anyways.

A- Poured into a snifter with a hazy, orange body somewhere around an apricot hue. Small, frothy white head forms to about half a finger high. Head retention is decent as the foam recedes to a thick ring around the edges. Pillows and spots of lace combine to make some nice patterns down the glass.

S- Mostly Belgian yeast with some obvious hop character added to compliment. Yeast is quite spicy but not like Saison-spicy. Notes of orange zest, coriander, light fruits and something perfumy.

T- Hops open up just a bit more than in the aroma but the yeast here is quite beastly, as I might guess for a 12% Belgian brew. Massive Belgian yeast spice, apples, spiced raisins, cardamom and a spicy alcohol punch. Hops give hints of citrus zest, pine and some floral character.

MF- Creamy textured and moderately thick overall body. Carbonation at a medium to high level and with agitation it causes the palate to be swallowed up by a blanket of cream and silky foam. Finishes with a lot of alcohol heat on the palate. Medium hoppy bitterness lingers in that warmth.

A sipper for sure and a pretty big hit of alcohol heat but not much actual alcohol flavor to throw off the experience. Massive Belgian yeast spice with a nice compliment of hops in the finish.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A - Pours a nice clear amber gold color with a finger of white fizzy head that dissipates really fast.
S - Big belgian yeasts banana. Maybe strawberry/ banana in the smell.
T - Very sweet caramel malt, some orange and pineapple a touch of pear, banana,
M - Alcohol burn, like mad dog actually.

This was interesting to say the least. Still not sure how I feel about this one.
