Zipline American Tripel

"American innovation meets Belgian tradition," is how the bottle describes this 8.0% ABV beer that uses Mosaic hops. It is from the Zipline Brewing Company of Lincoln, Nebraska, home of "Brave New Brew."

The beer pours a deep apricot with amber and copper tints. There is a short head of white to off-white foam that is not long lasting. The aroma is fruity, tangy, sweet, a bit of peach and apricot, with lighter tropical notes in the background. The taste follows the aromas, the sweetness and the tanginess come into nice balance, leaving deep, rich fruit notes of tropical, citrus and peach. The finish is just this side of dry, with a light, tangy bitterness. The beer drinks elegantly smooth. This is nice, nice, nice.
