3.2/5  rDev -16.2%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 4

Poured from a 750 ml into two separate tulip-style chalices (one for me and one for my wife). A very nice looking beer of a copper color that bubbles up with a frothy head and leaves you with a healthy lacing. Carbonation seems moderate and I noted quite a bit of sediment - obviously heavy as it settled immediately - on the bottom of my glass.

From here on this beer is very deceiving. The side panel of the label gives the impression of a Belgian style brew yet at first whiff hops evade my nostrils. Perhaps the front of the label can explain this as it is clearly denoted this is an "American Trippel". Ok, fine - it's a take on a Belgian style, and obviously hops are a big part of American craft brewing. This beer is really more of a "Belgian IPA" and I'll try to review it as such (otherwise it would have been scored much lower).

The taste is more of the same, hops. I was hoping for some Belgian attributes to shine through, but they really weren't there for me as the bitterness knocks out these other elements like Chuck Norris's roundhouse. However that seems to be the ticket for a Belgian IPA - so I suppose we can call it average. A bit on the dry side with earthy yeast on the back end. The mouthful warms with spicy alcohol biting the tongue, I wished for more.

As someone who enjoys hops, I'm going to be more forgiving on the drinkability. It's a good drink, just very elusive in its labeling. Where is that % abv anyway?
