This beer is a must for anyone interested in Mendelian genetics! Pours a beautiful yellow with an amazingly fluffy three finger head. I love it when you take a sip and get foam on your nose. The nose of this beer is incredibly strong and reeks of both hops and bread with some pleasant spice aromas. At first sip I thought trippel but then the IPA came through and the ardennes hop flavors delight, but only for a moment as the carbonation and creaminess of a classic belgian trippel finish the taste. Incredibly smooth, and the small amount of bitterness that there is is only in the middle which is an incredible feat. This is the perfect meld of a belgian IPA and a classic belgian Trippel. Great accomplishment, and a must for any belgian fan.

Color is mainly yellow/orange, forms a large white head that seems in no hurry to go anywhere.
Smell is of malt, yeast, floral notes, and a bit of pine from the hops.
Starts out a lot like a triple, with fruit and pepper notes. It's in the back of the beer that the hops shop up, and add floral and pine flavors, leaving a bitterness in the finish.
Smooth and solid feel to this one.
I knew this would be an interesting beer, as it combines my favorite style of beer with one of my least favorite styles. The combination actually works, although it is a bit more hopped up than I prefer. The triple part of adds complexity and flavors I like, although this is probably one of the most hopped up Belgian beers I have ever tried. Definitely worth trying out, glad I tried something a little different.
