Hazy orange-yellow color with a rather magnificent white head that leaps up quite high in the glass, lasts really long, and leaves beautiful stick.

Earthy, piney, Tomahawk-grassy hop aroma on the nose, along with plenty of citric notes, including lemon zest, a bit of orange, and lots of other fruit too. Really interesting, complex, and and with good peppery power.

Aggressive flavor, leads headfirst with pepper and finishes strong with bitter, lasting hops. Up front there is a lot of grassy, European style hopping, some grain sweetness comes up next, and afterward the hops take over til the finish, lending the fruity notes here.

Good, chewy mouthfeel that's about perfect for style, quite dry but still managing plenty of smoothness and body.

I fell in love with this beer on tap, and I adore it from the bottle. This is absolutely my style, and the addition of the massive, American-style heavy hop hand is right up my alley. Sweet.

Pours a fully fogged in orange with a brown hue. nose is real strong with lemon and seems to smell like Pine Sol. Yeah. I said that. Flavor is smooooth. Real smooth. Meaty hops and meaty citrus. Robust and earthy. Feel is silken on liquid. This is pretty tasty. Surprisingly, it leans much farther to Belgian than IPA, which is good. Well done. Very well done indeed.

A - Great off-white, fine bubbled head. Great lace and retention. Light gold body.

S - Grape, orange, black pepper, bread crust, yeast, a touch of banana, and a light funk.

T - Bright, bitter grapefruit marmalade. Bready center. Leafy green bitter finish. Delicious.

M - Nice carbonation. Great medium/full body clings to your palate.

O - A fantastic beer. A great take on combining the best of a triple with an IPA.
