Let me preface by saying I've had this beer from the bottle, at an Indiana Ice game (hockey team it's for) and at the brewery. There is no question this beer does not have the same flavors and presence when from the bottle.

On tap it is a solid beer with great citrus hops flavors and underlying clove taste. This is the a beer that is far better from a tap at the brewery, taste room or at an Ice game.

Color is dark orange, but not quite to copper. Yeast and orange dominate the aroma. Sweet malt with a toasted background. That pleasant funk from Belgian yeast. It's almost like orange butterscotch. Hops only show up in the dry, slightly bitter finish.

This doesn't have great reviews elsewhere, but I'm baffled. I think it's delicious.

Thanks to Joe for this one! Review from notes.

A: Poured a light copper/orange color with a small off-white head on top that has decent retention and thin lacing.

S: Rather sweet and sugary. A bit of caramel, faint Belgian yeast, and a some flowery/grassy hops.

T: Again, on the sweeter side for the style, not overly hoppy, but there is some light grassy hops and a little bit of citrus. A little Belgian yeast comes through and a little bit of spice.

M: Light to medium bodied with medium carbonation.

O: Approachable for style. Easy drinking.

12 oz. bottle into an IPA glass

A - Moderate pour produces a 2 finger head in height that dissipates rather slowly. The head is a thick foam. The beer itself is hazy and amber in color with moderate carbonation visible in the form of small bubbles rising fairly quickly toward the surface. 4/5

S - Dark stone fruit, caramel, sorghum, peat moss, and a light orange fruitless make up the bulk of the aroma. The aroma is distinctly Belgian with Belgian yeast really standing out. Rather sweet and fruity overall with the yeast being a strong backup. 3.5/5

T - Light caramel, candy sugar, and Belgian yeast make up the initial flavor on the tongue. Sourdough bread comes in right after the yeast. This quickly transitions to an orange fruit flavor and an earthy sorghum-like sweetness along with a bit of peat moss and musty hay. Fairly complex but also light at the same time due to the flavors coming and going rather quickly. Very little bitterness to speak of and no lingering bitterness on the palate. 3.5/5

M - Medium bodied with a light carbonation burn up front. This beer wets the tongue nicely and features no drying at all. A bit sticky at times. 3.75/5

O - The focus here is definitely on the Belgian part of Pale Ale. Drinks fairly light and is somewhat complex with the typical Belgian flavors. The yeast really comes to the forefront with his one and plays the starring role. 3.5/5

I wasn't paying very much attention and didn't know what this was supposed to be. After finding out it was supposed to be a Belgian Pale, it was just slightly clearer. It has a bit of that skunky yeasty taste it should have, but it's more funky than skunky.

It has decent color and a light head that keeps on giving. The taste is a malt, yeast combo with a bit of infection, but not out of control. It's a drinkable imitation.

This is the third Triton for me and the weakest. So far Four Barrel is the best.
