      Overall Impression (3)
      Golden, hazy, big thick head. Fruity aroma, like peaches; spicy aroma, like cinnamon. Light body, fantastically fizzy. Nice and malty, with lots of Belgian spiciness and hints of bananas. Really quite drying in the finish, with tingly alcohol. Brewed with dinkel - an ancient grain related to wheat - and woodruff.

      Score: 20 points
      Appearance (3)
      Deep golden. Very hazy. Massive creamy head.
      Aroma (4)
      Citrusy, spicy, fruity hops. Spicy esters.
      Mouthfeel (10)
      Medium body. Really fizzy. Lots of sweet malt in the background. Grassy, lemony hop flavor, very bitter for a Tripel. Nice alcohol character. Spicy, drying. Lingering bitterness in the finish.
      Overall Impression (3)
      The label says it's a "Dobbelen IPA Tripel", and that's exactly what it tastes like. It's hopped with Amarillo, Tomahawk, and Saaz.
