Pours out with a massive head; fluffy and forever-on-top. Cloudy dark orange/amber color. Superb lacing.

Lots of wonderous Belgian yeast notes of red apple skin and nuttiness combined with a dank citrus hop nose. Grapefruit pith, musty orange, and apricot.

Whoa! Big maltiness, almost like an English old ale. Turned toffee and flat caramel tones promote high grain content. Alcohol is no joke either. Hops seem duller now, however, the flavors are still a little more exotic. More red apple, melon, orange, grapefruit, and apricot. Mouthfeel is luxurious. Very interesting bite full of fine-grained carbonation and wet body plus. Alcohol is sneakier as it warms, but the general ABV is no secret, really. Pushes for greatness; falls a little short.

Served in a snifter.

Appearance: Amber but incredible cloudy which I really like but the problem is the sediments are on roids. Some sediments are good too many is like having a five extra scoops of sprinkles on your ice cream. Looks good but I do feel a little critical, the head was pretty thick about 1/2" white.

Smell: light spicy scent, feels a little like a mix between bread and nutmeg, but extremely light.

Taste: Has a lot of going on here, grape not grapefruit with yeast that is a smooth bitterness to it. Not hoppy like it's American counterparts, but pretty robust in taste. Sweet and lightly bitter, oh yes!

Mouth: Thirst quencher in the best aspect of words, bready. Smooth and can't really complaint at all.

Overall: Pretty complex taste, has a little bit of everything going here and just drinking this I feel that it can be paired with anything from steak, to even dessert. Little pricey but still satisfies....Salud!

bomber into St. Bernardus Tulip

A - couldy tan body, not transparent. little head, small tight lacing

S - Malt, bread, malt, belgian hops, malt, funk. banana, clove, coriander, honey, caramel

T - fantastic Belgian triple. Very well balanced, sweet, malty, earthy. Think "Poperings Hommel" with sweetness. definietly a slow sweet sipper. hops are not as forward as the name "Triple IPA" would lead you to believe.

M - Full, round, sweet, sticky. almost resinous.

O - Even though this is an IPA, would be inclined to even cellar this for a while. Great beer.
