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 - poured a one finger thick, creamy, light tan head into a tulip glass that left a thin ring of lace throughout. the body was a bright golden color.
s - floral hops, yeasty, bready, a pilsner type aroma comes through as well.
t - bready with some piney hops. hint of apples with a caramel finish.
m - medium and slightly bubbly.
o - nice take on a tripel. really like blue pants stuff since they moved into their new brewhouse.
