Le FreakĀ® is the first-ever hybrid ale of its kind: the convergence of a Belgian-Style Trippel with an American Imperial IPA. This zesty Amarillo dry-hopped, bottle-conditioned marvel entices with fruity Belgian yeast aromatics and a firm, dry finish. Aromas of orange and passion fruit with sweet bready malts, and flavors of orange marmalade and citrus fruit pith. Experience a legendary beer.

Pours a deep copper color. Hazy as well. The head on this beer is very thick and fluffy, good lacing and amazing head retention.

Not much smell here. Some citrus mixed with some sweet, yeasty, maltiness expected from a belgian.

Taste is malt forward at first, but mellows into a nice hop bitterness that lingers on the finish. Some bread, biscuit flavors as well.

Mouthfeel is crisp for a belgian, but creamy for an IPA. Good middle ground. Easily drinkable.

Good beer and this is quickly becoming one of my favorite styles.
