Amber-colored beer, topped off with a white head. Great hoppy aroma, some floral accents and hints of tropical fruits. Taste is perfectly balanced. The grapefruit bitterness of the hops are perfectly matched by the mild caramel sweetness in the aftertaste. Delicious beer.

Very nice combination of an American IPA and Belgian Trippel. Fruity and floral hop aromas with a bit of bannna. Taste follows the nose with an additional biscuit and yeasty character. Well balanced and medium carbonation. Would gladly drink again.

Served On-Tap 10.5oz pour

A — Pours a bright and hazy orangey hue. There is a rocky and cream colored head that sits atop the brew, nice lacing left behind.

S — Smells of bitter and sweet hops, lots of pine, citrus, light melon, lots of lemon. Little to no yeast character.

T — Tastes supremely hoppy and bitter, lots of piney, sweet, citrusy hop notes.

M — Medium bodied, not as heavy as one might expect.

O — Nice overall, really no yeast character though, which I have come to expect from Belgian IPA's. This is a true winner, great hop profile and balance.

Tasted from a 330 ml bottle in France.

L - Bottle conditioned. Deep amber/orange; mostly clear. Huge, fluffy, bone-colored head. Amazing piling/retention/lacing.

S - Smells like wet, raw hops. Nothing else comes through. Out of balance, but amazing anyway.

T - Dominated by fresh, green hops. Clearly a US citrusy variety. Followed by bready mallet, brown sugar, honey. Slight black pepper yeast note. Complex, but out of balance toward hops.

F - Medium to heavy body. Creamy carbonation. High hops bitterness. Some alcohol presence.

O - A very well-made beer, even though extremely hop-centered. Over the top but yummy.

Great IPA. One of my favorite beers. Nice hoppy taste without being overly bitter.

33cl bottle. Bright orange, with a medium-height white head. Smells of Belgian yeast, citrus hops, elderflower, honey and brett. Bitter-sweet, with notes of citrus, honey and tropical fruit (mostly mango and pineapple). Medium body, soft and with low carbonation.
