Poured from a 12oz bottle (Best By Date of 12/11/14...so it was bottled 11/11/14) into a Lost Abbey branded Rastal Teku 2.0 glass...

A- Pours a hazy golden yellow/orange hue with a single finger worth of a white head, dissipating quickly...noticeable sediment suspended in the liquid. 3.75

S- The 'American Trippel' designation does not disappoint as the aroma is wonderfully unique and massively complex.. Instead of the familiar aromas dominated by esters from the yeast and other adjuncts (i.e. spices), Exit 4 blooms with a bold aroma dominated by a combination of honey-like sweetness and a hop cocktail courtesy of Simcoe, Columbus, Palisade and Amarillo varieties. Depending on what you look for and how your palate is behaving...citrus (orange, lemon/lime, grapefruit), fleshy tropical fruits (white grape, pear, peach, passionfruit), pine as well as some classic yeast producing esters: banana and bubblegum...simply amazing! Without a doubt, this one of my favorite aromas for a beer (and especially a Trippel). 5.0

T- The palate is immediately met with those sweet tropical flavors found in the nose. A hint of spice is detected mid-palate which quickly morphs into a dry piney finish courtesy of the triumphant blending of Columbus hops, acidulated malt and Demerara sugar. Despite being 9.5% ABV, the alcohol is undetectable. Flying Fish defines Exit 4 as a 'hoppy trippel' and just like the aroma, does not disappoint in the flavor. Another perfect score! 5.0

M- Light-to-Moderate carbonation and light body makes this beer extremely quaffable. At this elevated ABV, Exit 4 stands to be a dangerous offering. Simply stated, this the best Belgian inspired beers I've ever tasted...awesome stuff! 5.0

O- Exit 4 is the epitome of a blend between a Belgian Trippel and an American IPA. Being that these are my two of my top three beer styles, Exit 4 ranks as one of my top beers of all time...and for it to be a year-round offering makes me smile. I am never without less than a 6-pack (and more like a case) at any given time. The ability to harness the profile of a Belgian Trippel/Tripel/Triple and combine it with the hop aroma/flavor from Pacific Northwest hops makes it one outstanding offering. Exit 4 is one (among many) reason to rejoice being born and raised in New Jersey...get it if you can! What's more, you cannot beat the value for a Trippel of this caliber (~$10.99 a 6-Pack)...simply amazing! 4.75

I am a BIG fan of tripel - this competes against the best! Smooth, mild fragrance, tremendous intial taste which is extremely satisfying and quenching. Only downside is that it is very difficult to find. Why? Could and should be their lead beer. The alcohol content is disguised in a very mellow flavor that has left me with "wanting more"...OK, OK, that is usually the case with a good beer, I agree! This may be my next "go to" beer if I can find it! Just love it!

Enjoyed this 12oz bottle out of a large snifter glass.

A: Pours a slightly cloudy golden hue with a very thin white head that quickly dissipates leaving no trail down the glass and ends in a trace of a lace.

S: Great hoppy aroma with a Belgian malt background and hints of bananas.

T: Alcoholic hoppy flavor with a smooth Beligan Tripel malt backbone.

M: Very strong and boozy. Thick chewy body and minimal carbonation.

O: Wow – a Belgian Tripel with a hop twist – yes please. I love these American brews.

I got this tasty brew from rwinzing thanks a million. I poured it into a pint glass and it poured a nice honey amber color. Hops and bready malt on the nose. The taste was amazing had a nice hoppy bitterness up front then a nice soft malt taste at the end. Not much head but fair lacing. The mouthfelll and drinkability are awesome so smooth but beware the ABV will get after two.

Cheers,
Dave

Poured from bottle to tulip glass.

A - cloudy; golden with hints of rust; frothy white head, decent lacing

S - typical Belgian hops, definitely smell the bananas mentioned on the bottle label; honey

T - a little rough whereas I tasted too much of the hops, not the best trippel I've had but pretty damn good; tasted some pepper . I finished the bottle in one sitting, it was that good.

M - Had a little bite but was very nice going down; thought the alcohol would be more prevalent but it was well hidden

D - definitely a must try for those that haven't; being a Jersey Boy I always root for the home team and Flying Fish has done a GREAT job with Exit 4. Can't wait for the next in the series!
