Bomber split between two Surly Darkness tulips. Pours a hazy bright dark golden color. Finger of creamy off-white head which dissipates toa thin crown. Moderate lacing.

Very fruity aroma. Tropical esters typical of the style like banana, orange, passionfruit, etc. Candi sugar, caramel, honey, and quite a lot of sweetness as well. Floral and perfumey hops and mild spicy phenols.

The flavor is much more rich and complex than the nose. Definitely a sweetness between the candi sugar and yeasty esters; a ton of tropical and citrus fruits. A bit of a subtle caramelized dark rum or brandy flambé combining the sweetness and slight alcoholic presence. A lot spicier than the nose would let on; definitely a hint of both hoppy and phenolic white pepper and clove. Very sweet, but finishes spicy.

Light-medium bodied with fairly high carbonation. Crisp but with a very subtle alcoholic warmth/creaminess.

This is a very good, but not world-class tripel. As far as American versions of this style go, however, this one does well. Alcohol warmth is a little exaggerated and the yeast is complex, but not particularly mind-blowing. It relies on the hoppy spices a little more than the yeast itself. Still a great attempt.
