22 Oz. Bottle

Appearance: Hazy golden color with a finger of white head that dissipates quickly. Demonstrates some nice legs.

Aroma: Light sweet maltiness, with a kiss of light caramel. Lightly citrusy and spicy belgian ester profile. Citrus hops blend nicely, but don't seem IPA like. Overall balance is closer to a tripel with a little more hop character.

Flavor: Nice mellow hop bitterness thats nice, but doesn't detract from light malt sweetness. Spicy phenolics are crisp with some citrus character. Fruitiness blends well with the earthy and citrus hop flavors.

Mouthfeel: Body is a little fuller than I would have expected for a tripel, but in line with an IIPA. Impacts the drinkability some, along with some hot alcohols, but a good bottle to split with someone.

A- Pours a hazy orange. Gives a nice slightly off-white head that never disappears, but transforms into this light foam topping connected to the sticky lacing.

S- Smells great! Yeasty, fruity, banana cloves infused with piney spicy bitterness mixed with candied sugary sweetness. A hint of booze.

T- Begins on the Belgian side....smooth, creamy, a lot of yeast with hints of fruit sweetness before giving way to the IPA. As the IPA steps in to make itself known with its very present hoppiness.

M- has a some weight on the toungue more like the belgian and the carbonation is on dead on.

O- This is an excellent blend of two styles that really works well together. I will definitely be picking up another soon!
