Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
(Previously known as Hop God) A beautiful golden crossbreed of a Belgian Tripel and a West Coast IPA. A remarkable explosion on the palate with spiciness, tropical fruit, and a firm citrus bitterness that will leave you begging for more! Aromas of grapefruit, citrus, and piney hops & tastes on the palate that tend toward pineapple, mango, and sweeter fruits. A big beer that was inspired by the West Coast – yet brewed by a Midwestern brewery not content with the status quo.

87 IBU

I went and had a growler filled with Hop God at a local grocery store, with no previous knowledge of the brew....and wow, quite a pleasant surprise I must say. A bountiful citrus and complex hop aroma is noted up front, followed by visualization of a crystal clear amber pour with an expected two finger head. Taste is overtly malty and sweet with a smooth hop finish, noting bold notes of tempered red fruit, typical of Belgian yeasts yet perfectly complementing the grain bill which I assume included the infamous Special B malt. Palate is thick and reminiscent of an imperial stout, which is always a plus with a crystal clear IPA like this (in my book). Pleasantly surprising. Overall, worth the price and I will definitely buy more. This may even out-compete Surly Furious in my book.

Served to me in a tulip glass, this beer makes about a finger thick bright white head and the body is hazy with a copper color.

The aroma is citrus with heavy doses of caramel.

The taste is of grapefruit, melon, and candied sugar.

Feels moderately carbonated, full in body, and warming in the end.
