16 oz can, dated 9/29/21, best by 12/29/21, into Wide mouthed glass.

Very pale hazy blonde with a creamy cap of 2 fingers. Very pretty. Leaves lots of lace.

Aroma of perfumey wet grass and grapefruit, pineapple, mango, wheat malt, and very light cannabis.

Flavor is crisp and delicious. Definitely one of the best session pales I've ever had period. Some light mango, strawberry, honeydew, and pineapple. Wheat malt is there to provide some chalk and doughy flavor, and it exits on yellow pear.

Feel is crisp and semi-clean with a slight chalk dust from the wheat, and leaves a juicy and lightly resinous finish.

Overall, Triptych is now one of my favorite breweries. This one punches way above its weight in ABV. Almost everything these guys do is great. Will be looking forward to my next Triptych haul. Despite its moniker it's not exactly dank, but it is pretty "dank" (what the kids these days call good). Would buy a 4 pack again no problem.

$10.99 / 4 pack / Bloomington IL Friar Tuck's

Absolutely delicious. It's not too bitter or hoppy, sour but not too sour, and slightly sweet. Looks and feels thick but tastes light, sort of like grapefruit juice.

This beer pours a very, very light golden color - it's almost white. It's also very hazy and murky. The carbonation levels are very high with this beer, that translates into a 4 finger white and very fluffy looking head. As the head dissipates, it produces a bit of clingy lacing on the glass, though that's erased by me trying to pour the rest of the beer in the glass.
The nose on this beer has a bit of pineapple on it, from the hops. Not too strong, but not too light either.
Taste - This beer has a decent tropical bill to it. A decent amount of grapefruit flavor here. The flavor is not overwhelming. It's strong, but doesn't punch you in the face.
I'm a fan of the feeling of this beer. It's somewhat crisp feeling up front, but turns to juicy and creamy feeling on the back.
Tasty, and easy drinking beer.

Enough hops to leave some not appreciating what the dank meme has to offer. Just enough wheat taste to let you know its a beer. Smooth as butter going down. Its a very hazy beer with a small foamy head that sure delivers a refreshing beer.

Pours a very pale hazy almost white yellow with a fluffy white head that sticks around for a little bit. It's one of the prettiest beers I've had. Smells like citrus mango with undertones of malty sweetness. The taste is honestly awesome. It's a tropical mango followed by guava and citrus with just enough hop bitterness balancing it out to keep it from being too sweet. The feel is truly outstanding. It's lightly carbonated with the type of tiny bubbles that perfectly coat your entire tongue and mouth in the perfect slightly bubbly sensation. Overall this is a great beer and I'll be keeping it in the fridge if I can. After finishing the pack I'm bumping up my review. This is the best american pale ale I've ever had.

Pours an effervescent & hazed straw color with 2+ fingers of fluffy eggshell colored head. Great lacing & very good head retention

S: Mangoes & oranges, fades down the stretch a little

T: Mango, green melon, oranges up front, dome dryness & white grape as well. Green melon, lime & grassyness as this warms, a little peach as well. Finishes juicy with lime, green melon & peach & pineapple

Nice drinkability, a very nice offering

Murky bright gold with a white cap, lace o plenty. Mango and various pale citrus with floral hops. Taste is more juicy with the citrus, mango, pineapple, peach and more botanicals in the hop finish. Feel is bright, hazy, and surprisingly juicy. Not a traditional APA but a damn good one

16oz can. Poured out a cloudy, golden orange color with a small, white head of foam. It smelled of pineapple, mango and toasted caramel. Sweet fruity taste with a dank, bitter bite and caramel sweetness.

16 oz can. Pours a hazy honeycomb with white head that froths and then fades. Taste is pineapple with wheat malt with a slight dankness at the end. Light to medium body, creamy mouth feel.

The appearance is a light orange color and hazy and cloudy with some lacing in the glass. The smell is fruity and the taste follows the smell. What's got me was the mouthfeel. Very smooth and creamy. A nice low ABV beer coming in at 5%. This would be a nice summer beer.

A pleasant surprise that I will have again.
Looks are as hazy as advertised. Smells are a medley of tree fruit, mostly tropical, mostly citrus and, rounding it out, a very modest mix of botanicals. Tastes follow the nose, but deliciously refreshing in my mouth. The oats and wheat offering a smooth, soft sensation. A real salivator.

My first from Triptych, I went on their website: a young brewer; but very accomplished for the talent shown in Dank Meme. Triptych is in the suburb of a college town. I think that U of I's main campus is lucky to have this thoughtful and talented brewer. I wish them well. Once I finish this 4 pack of Dank, I look forward to Triptych's other offerings.

Look- Very hazy, leaves a thick lace on the glass.
Smell- Smells dank, very juicy fruity aroma
Taste- Fruity taste that is well balanced with the hops.
Feel- Heavy mouth feel.

A delicious pale ale. One of the best hazy pale ales I have ever enjoyed. Never regretted any brew I have purchased from Triptych, but this is by far my favorite. It's great in cans, and even better on draft.
