look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

On tap at the brewpub. From notes.

A - Poured a hazy dark gold with a one finger white head. Good carbonation and good lacing left over with an OK film of retention.

S - Mango, pineapple, yeast, apple, pear all present. Yup, this is Citra.

T - Booze with pineappple and pears. Lingers with a boozy pineapple note. A little like sherry soaked pineapple chunks or something. The booze is a little strong, especially when it warms up.

M - Strong carbonation with a medium body and a sweet finish.

O/D - Aroma was lovely but the booze is a little rough. The Citra also seems to overpower the Tripel elements as well. Good but the other elements could shine through if the hopping was toned down and the alcohol was masked better.

On tap at Swillburger/The Playhouse in Rochester, NY.

This one pours a slightly hazed orange-ish color, with a small head, and a bit of lacing.

Smells like lots of tropical fruits, peaches in syrup, apricot, a little clove, and candy sugar.

This is a hoppy tripel- but the Citra hops provide more of an intense fruitiness to complement the usual fruitiness associated with tripels. There's basically no hop bitterness, with syrupy stone fruit, orange peel, clove, and simple syrup.

This is medium bodied, a tiny bit syrupy, with a lower level of carbonation.

This is definitely interesting, but it's a tiny bit too syrupy for me.

Appearance: light golden glow to this beer very different from other tripels. Low head on the pour and retained while drinking. Medium amounts of active carbonation.

Smell: nice subtle fruity citra hop tones. Medium to light yeast backbone. Buttery and doughy bread also present. Definitely a hop dominated aroma which is unique but very enjoyable.

Taste: the front is a combination of traditional tripel characteristics and bright citra hops. The body continues to showcase earthy hops. The finish is slightly dry with plenty of yeasty creaminess.

Mouthfeel: a unique combination of bright hops and tripel characteristics.

Overall: interesting and tasty brew. A pretty rare beer to find in the states. Incredibly easy drinking for 10.2% abv.

A: Deep golden, decent clarity, it glows. Not much head for me when poured aggressively into a Westmalle chalice.

S: Lemon pepper, oranges and tangerine, firmly malty. Very heavy and sweet smelling.

T: Big, sweet and malty with plenty of dank citra fruitiness. I find this beer is a very slow sipper and extremely boozy.

M: I wish it was much drier, and more carbonated.

very good, on tap at WVRST. Really hoppy and drinkable, the combination making for a great Belgian IPA. Funky aroma. Orange colour. Thick lace sheet.Above average mouthfeel from the significnat yeast, that adds sweetness and does not track from the edgy citrus hops.
