When a beer store who was saving beers for me offered to save a Tripel Hop I scoffed because we get it stateside around the holidays each year and I was never really a fan of it. Then, I see it in a bar and the label was different. Oh, it’s a new recipe! I order it. WHOA. Amazing beer and I had 3 more that night.

A – Gorgeous bright golden yellow. SRM of 3? 2 finger big beautiful clear head. Fantastic head lacing. Nice! 

S – Huge citra profile. Minor Columbus hops. Dry hopped? 

T – Amazin. Grapefruit and pine needles. Orange peels and a minor hint of banana. Zesty and fresh with a nice dry hopped citra back of the tongue hit. Big Belgian yeast and minor breadiness 

M – 100% carbonation. Oily and slick finish. Huge hop notes left over 

O – I was very surprised by this. I’ve had the 2010 and 2011 Triple Hop in the US and paid an arm and a leg for them. They were disappointing. This was a very delicious beer and one I should have brought home with me.
