OK - so this beer is kinda like a merger between the belgium style triple and a well hopped IPA. I tend to be a fan of the belgium styles, as well as IPA's, so this particular beer was a standout for me. In fact, it was the sole motivator for signing up on BeerAdvocate.

Hoppy Citrus aroma, light flavor, sudsy, very strong hops and not over sweet. Nice.

I have seen some comments about its drinkability - ok - so most belgium beers are too strong to be "drinkable". Your not going to sit back and knock off a sixer of these on a hot day - its just not that kind of beer. It is, however, a remarkable beer with few peers.

Huge pineapple and grapefruit nose. Beautiful floral hop aroma. Pours a hazy orange/straw color with a nice and sticky 2 finger head.

Spicy and breadfruit up front, lots of tropical fruit tastes in the middle. Big and juicy and smooth in body. Slightly bitter finish, doesn't blend with the juiciness but instead cuts in near the end. Its not a bad thing though and only adds another layer of flavor.

Stands out amongst the crowd when it comes to dipas probably a different hop selection then the usual, less citrus but a ton more tropical fruit, its fantastic.

Unearthly indeed!
