Light in color. It almost looks like a lager. Good frothy head. Nice strong odor, almost tangerine-like. It puts you in the mind of clementines.A tad hoppier than I would have liked but that may appeal to some. One of its most interesting aspects is that it rather high in alcohol but doesn't taste like it.

Served on tap at Willie McBride's in Hoboken, NJ

A: Pours a slightly hazy medium golden yellow in color with some light to moderate amounts of visible carbonation. The beer has a two finger tall dense foamy off white head that slowly reduces to a thin film covering the majority of the surface of the beer with a thicker ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate to significant amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Light aromas of bananas and pale malts upfront but the smell is really dominated by the citrus hops - both grapefruit and orange.

T: The overall taste of this beer is slightly sweet with pale malts and banana, bubble gum, and honey upfront. Again, like the smell, the taste is dominated by the citrus hops - orange and grapefruit. Very light hints of bitterness in the finish.

M: Medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Smooth with moderate amounts of dryness in the finish.

O: A very enjoyable beer, I like the combination of the IPA hoppiness with a traditional Belgian tripel and the citrus hops really pop for me. The beer is pretty easy to drink considering the strength but there are some light hints of the alcohol. I think I need to limit myself with this beer as it can really sneak up on you.

12 oz bottle. Pours golden with a short lived white head and lively carbonation. Aroma is of citrusy hops, lemongrass, pale malt, pears, apples and yeast. Body is full and crisp. Taste is citrusy hops, lemon zest, spices, biscuit malt, ripe fruit and alcohol. Finish is long, bitter and spicy. Nice take on tripel.

Poured into a pint glass.

A: Clear pale yellow with two-finger, white, foamy head that lasted several minutes. Pretty good lacing.

S: Hops, spice, and fruit.

T: Moderate sweetness and light bitterness. Sweet malt and pine hops.

M: Medium bodied with lively carbonation. Slightly warm going down.

O: Not my favorite Tripel, but definitely a good one.

Bottle: Poured an hazy amber color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and some good lacing. Aroma of fruity ester with light peppery yeast and sweet malt is quite nice. Taste is a nice balanced mix between some sweet malt with notes of peppery yeast and fruity ester and a dry finish. Body is full with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Very good interpretation of the style and nice level of complexity.
