Packaging: 22 oz. brown bottle, pry-cap
Purchased: Single from Liquor Express, Huntsville AL
A: Nice white head on a cloudy, dark orange or apricot colored beer. Retention is OK and lacing is good.
S: Smells are mainly of hops, both citrus and piney, plus a little grape fruitiness, but overall aromas are not strong.
T: Some Belgian yeast notes, but the main taste is that of citrus hops.Very little malts or sweetness. Tastes much like an IPA to me.
M: Moderate to high levels of carbonation with a medium body. Aftertaste is hoppy and bitter. The flavors smooth out and seems less harsh as it warms up.
O: It was interesting to try my first Blue Pants offering. They hit the mark on the hoppy part of the name, but it didn't seem much like a Tripel to me.

A-hazy gold color with a very large white head that fades slowly and leave a great lace on the glass
S- Spice, some citrus, and hop aroma
T-hops comes though the spice and malty flavor, with some citrus in there also. Has a hop bitterness in the aftertaste with a spice and pepper taking over in the finish
M-medium body and high carbonation
O-the hops in this Tripel was nice but would liked to have not so much hops. It had all the spicy , peppery, and other flavors of a tripel, and by the name I guess that was the taste that was being shot at. Nice Alabama beer! Make one without all the hops I will try it.

Pours an effervescent gold/amber with a pinky of pearl colored head. Good lacing & head retention
S: Pears, appleskins & cereal notes, some perfumy hops as well
T: Pineapple, slightly boozey breadyness, grassy notes, & wet cereal up front. Bitterness is pronounced as this warms, some aspirin, some grapefruit, white grape & canned pears as well, more porridge type flavors as well & little bit of honey crisp apple. Finishes with pineapple, pears & a bit of grapefruit
MF: Medium bodied, slight carbonation
An alright tripel, but I wouldn't buy this again
