Our brewers are slinging some serious hops into this Belgian inspired DIPA, which is why we initially named it "Trebuchet", the mediaeval French catapult pictured at right. We ran into a snafu with the name when we discovered another cool brewery in California already had it trademarked. Instead of crying about it, we just changed it to the way 9 out of 10 people pronounced it anyway. Tree Bucket. Took a French word and used American phonetics-- kind of like what we do with our beer styles. Cheers!

Slightly piney hop aroma. Taste has a noticeable malty sweetness. Beyond that, I'm getting some citrusy and piney hop characteristics. Nice IPA. I'd definitely have this again. 4/5
