Purchased at the LCBO for $10.00 for a 750ml bottle. Served at 6deg C in a tulip

A- Opens well and pours a huge head that lasts forever. Almost clear gold.

S- Lots here. Hops, malt and yeast oh my!

T- Goodly amount of hops after sitting in the cellar for 4mths. Nice blend this IPA Tripel.

M- Dry as expected. Good aftertaste.

O- Nice to have tried. Would like to see thee beers as 12oz instead of 26oz. Too expensive

Food Pairing

This pretty good hybrid went well with... Chicken wings. LOL

Enjoy

Appearance: It has a nice beautiful hazy golden/orange color to it. It has a nice thick bubbly white head that dies down moderately slow and leaves lovely lacing.

Smell: The aromas definitely give out hints of citrus/lime, floral hops, green apples, Belgian yeast, some breadiness, cloves and faint pepper.

Taste: Like the aromas, it has some citrus/lime, green apples, floral hops, some breadiness, Belgian yeast and faint cloves.

Mouthfeel: It has a med-high carbonation with a very nice overall balance and feel.

Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied by good flavors and aromas. Great Belgian IPA.

Serving type: bottle
