4.06/5 rDev +12.8%
Appearance: 1 inch head, hazy, gold in color, high carbonation, clear
Smell: honey, light rye, and Belgian spices
Taste: honey, and Belgian spices, and a decent amount of bittering rye at the end.
Mouthfeel: sweet with a bitter end, medium bodied with high carbonation
Overall: I enjoyed this tripel. One of the better ones I have found in six pack format. I would pick this up again. Is one of the better beers from Two Roads.

3.09/5 rDev -14.2%
12 oz. bottle poured into a snifter.
Appearance - Slightly hazy orange body. Small white head. Settles to a thick collar and some nice islands of foam.
Smell - Phenolic yeast aromas immediately. Sweet fruitiness. A hint of rye, but not much. As soon as it warms, it gives off a chemical aroma that is really off-putting. Like a melted plastic.
Taste - Fruity and a bit tropical up front. Quite sweet. Rye kicks in as the sweetness reaches unacceptably high levels and cuts it a little bit. Mild rye spice. Very slight bitterness.
Mouthfeel - Medium heavy. Medium carbonation.
Overall - I'm glad that bizarre smell didn't translate into the taste. It's a decent beer, but I keep sipping it with trepidation because of that aroma. It's so hard to pull of this style.

12oz bottle served in a pint glass
Orange gold with a bit of haze and a lot of foam made up of small white bubbles that take a while to settle. The smell is pretty good with a good deal of belgian pale malts, a bit of candy sugar and peppery spice along with a bit of phenols and yeast character. The taste is largely sweet up front with the spice coming through after a second or two. Also present is a fair bit of alcohol which may be expected with a beer of this strength in this style. Hop bitterness is there to almost balance the sweetness but doesn't quite manage it and there is very little in the way of hop flavor. Some bitterness could be from the rye as well as hops. The mouthfeel is a bit on the slick side again due to the sugar and the finish is a mix of sweet and pepper, carbonation is perhaps a bit low for the style. Overall this isn't going to compare to the more famous examples of the style, but it is a decent example none the less, one that I'd consider getting again.

3.61/5 rDev +0.3%
A: The beer is slightly hazy golden yellow in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation along with lots of fine particulates floating in suspension. It poured with a short white head that quickly died down, leaving delicate lacing covering the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: The smell is a little sweet and has notes of candi sugar and alcohol along with slight hints of bananas.
T: Like the smell, the taste starts out with some sweetness, but this seems to be a little more subdued due to the presence of the rye, the latter of which contributes slight hints of spiciness to the finish. Only slight bits of alcohol are perceptible.
M: It feels a little more than medium-bodied on the palate—heavier than most tripels but not sticky—and has a moderate amount of carbonation. Slight amounts of warming are felt from the underlying alcohol.
O: From the name of this beer, I thought it would have a little more rye and associated spiciness, but the rye does lend a bit of complexity to the taste.
