I'm from South NJ - so I love to support Flying Fish, but this comes off to me as closer to a DIPA than a tripel. First of all - the color is more amber than light golden. Smell is very good - but more floral that a typical tripel. I like the taste - and am not disappointed, but this tastes nothing like your world class tripels - i.e. La Fin Du Monde, Hennepin, Tripel Karmeliet, Long Strange, Westmalle. It has that sweet, slightly hoppy flavor of a DIPA. Nice carbonation and mouthfeel.
Like I said - not disappointing at all, just not your typical tripel. I would buy again, but wouldn't drink if I was jonesing for a tripel.

On-tap @ Left Bank Burger Bar in Jersey City, NJ.

Served in a tulip glass. Hazy yellow color with a large white head with great retention. Aroma is strong and satisfying. Clove spice, orange citrus, and banana. The flavor adds a bit of alcohol into the mix. Sweet and fruity, but with big spicy overtones. Long-lasting flavor that is warming without being overbearing. Medium bodied that feels even lighter thanks to the strong carbonation.

One of the better American tripels I've had, right up there with Allagash.

Very interesting beer almost a hybrid beer with 95% tripel with an inventive infusion of hops to add a new dimension to the tripel style. This viscous brew coats the palate with a wide spectrum of flavors as others here have described. The brewers at Flying Fish have definitely created a dynamic beer that is outside of the box and is a great brew to drink slowly and enjoy.
