Iron Hill May ’10 pt2. "American Tripel"

Continuing with a series of brews I recently had on a trip to the Iron Hill Brewery in Maple Shade, NJ. Iron Hill’s “American Tripel” is next. I love Belgian style Tripel, and being from the U.S. I love hops in my beer. So the name alone, “American Tripel” made me really want to try this beer. It arrived in a tulip glass that showed off it’s yellow-golden clear body and white frothy one and a half finger thick head. According to the Iron Hill description, this is supposed to be a marriage of Belgian yeast and American hops. True to it’s description, the American Tripel starts out with a bitter citrus hops bite and mellows into a pleasant fruited yeast flavor. The finish is fairly warm from the 9.0% ABV. I found this to be a really great beer. It was incredibly balanced and refreshing. A must have in my opinion. If you find yourself in the NJ, PA, DE area this month or at another establishment where this is on tap I don’t think you will be disappointed. A great twist on a Tripel! Here’s to Good Beers!
