Poured from fridge temp. Pours a dark yellow/light orange with tons of head. Nose is piny hops, orange, lemon, and bread. Taste is hoppy, citrus forward, a bit sweet like candy, maybe a syrupy. Very refreshing with some nice bread and yeast notes. Mouthfeel is dry and nice.

Interesting hoppy tripel hybrid.

Just a bit too boozy, but the hop selection matches the ester profile so much better than most hoppy Belgian hybrids.

Wicked hybrid. Really juicy, mandarin nose, some apple-y esters. Booze tempered nicely. From a brewery that seems like they can nail anything, this is still surprisingly awesome.

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.

Pours a nice hazy yellow colour with medium head and adequate lacing. Smell is of pineapple and white grapes. Taste follows the smell. Reminds me exactly of a Duvel. Overall, a very drinkable beer at 10.2 ABV.

341ml bottle.

Opaque gold with a moderate, quickly dissipating head. Slight funk, broad spectrum of fruit aromas. Spicy on the tongue. Bitter hops. mild tropical fruit. Warming booziness. Medium bodied. Lovely.

Cloudy gold color with storming multi-speed and layered activity. Thick frothy and rocky beige 3-4 finger island head, lasting around 15 minutes, with thick legs. Flavors of pineapple, mango, lemon, clove, sweet grains, honey, coriander, peppercorn, floral and herbal spices. Juicy tropical fruits sweetness with delicate grassy bitterness. Slick oily full body with prickly and zesty carbonation. Strong finish, a little dry yet the alcohol is well hidden, lingering orange and citrus hops, some grass and pine, with thick sweet malts and a floral bouquet. Delicious flavors, bold and filling, yet quite fresh. Good balance and intensity, complex, although feels more like a Belgian IPA than actual Tripel. Overall excellent quality craft.
