Flying Fish Exit 4

Exit 4 poured a cloudy, golden yellow color with a thumb width, white head.  The nose is nice, with some hops that compliment a typical malt backed triple aroma.  The body has an almost creamy middle with a little carbonation on the edges.  The body is complex, with a touch of sweetness up front with a malt base and a hoppy edginess.  The finish has a pefect weight, leaving a light, lingering bitterness.

Overall, this is just an awesome beer, one of the best that I have had in a long time.  It has everything you would want in a beer, a great aroma, balance, complexity, and it hides its 9.5% ABV about as well as any beer I have ever had.  This is the definition of the American Tripel style.
