Sweetwater Creeper

On-tap at The Brick Store, Decatur, GA, USA. #1 in the Dank Tank series.
Golden pour with an impressive head and some nice lace. Nice carbonation.
Would definitely categorize this as a hoppy tripel rather than a Belgian IPA. The sweetness is certainly a big factor with some distinct Belgian type candy notes. It also has the Tripel alcohol, but it lacks much (if any) of the white pepper notes that we might expect. The hop bitterness is very much in the back for me.
A tasty beer and perhaps a sign of better things to come from Sweetwater, but why, oh why, oh why do we need a 10% beer? What about a special release that is sessionable?? Drinkability suffers for me as a result.
