JAXSON (526) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 25, 2013
From a bottle, pours a dark peach with a thin head. Nose is weed-like hops, nice and crystaline, though not a while lot else. Mouth is an odd clash of sweet, bitter, herbal, malty, and even plastic flavors. Burned rubber and herbal hops with a lot od sugars flying around. The nose is actually nice but there’s no focus in the flavor and it’s just too strong. Heavy on the palate. "You have to out-plastic them!"

Minderbinder (1671) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - APR 11, 2013
Bottle 22oz. Pours dark blond with very low white head. Some lacing. Aroma is of hops, citrus, fruits (including tropical), resin. Taste is of pine, resin, malt, sugar, some weird off-taste. Palate: Medium-full bodied. Overall: Alcohol very well hidden. Fruity, tasty, but a little something wierd. Not drinkable. Still good, but not outstanding.

czar (4107) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - APR 9, 2013
bottle shared by tom10101, thanks for waiting for us! clear pale yellow with a decent white head, some retention. citrus, strawberry, light pine, sugary honeyed malts, hint of wood, something off - cardboard-like and/or awkward oakiness. almost soft carbonation, medium body - sticky and almost cloying sugars, short to medium long citrusy finish. nice but nothing spectacular - not so good drinkability too.

jcartamdg (1859) - Spring Hill, Florida, USA - APR 8, 2013
Pours a deep orange gold with a thick white head. Aroma of big hops, alcohol and a big malt presence. Taste is grapefruit, pine, alcohol and malt. It's a cross between a super hopped barley wine and an ipa. Very cool ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

tom10101 (2613) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 8, 2013
Bottle (22 oz). Thanks to pandableh for this one! Unclear golden with a medium beige head and decent lacing. Aroma of citrus and tropical fruits along with grassy notes and hints of sweetness. Taste is heavily sweet (cloying) and malty with citrus, tropical fruits, herbal notes and some resinous presence. Moderate to heavy bitterness. Heavy body. These triple IPA are almost Barley Wine with their heavy malt bill. Not easily drinkable. Good beer, but it’s absolutely not in the same league - drinkability and enjoyability wise - as Heady Topper, Dreadnaught and Hill Farmstead DIPA.

Orange, white head. Nose is tropical fruit heavy, especially ripe mango. Taste is big mango, earth. Expectedly very hoppy. Juicy mouthfeel. Lasting dry bitter finish.

b3shine (5132) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 31, 2013
Bomber to oversized snifter (shared with the Mrs.; thanks stawn). Looks good; a fairly transparent orange with off-white lacing. Smells and tastes GOOD! Citrus hops with a nicely balanced sweet but light malty backbone. Good stuff!

ddemmingjr (689) - Chagrin Falls, Ohio, USA - MAR 30, 2013
Bottle: pour hazy orange with off white milky head. Nose is pungent orange and grapefruit, bread malts, oak and resin. Heavier on the palate with tropical fruits, pine resin, vanilla, oak and sweet malts that were a bit over powering from the dry hopping twice. A bit much for my liking. Slightly syrupy and simply too sweet for a session. Good, not elite. Pure Hoppiness was superior for sure. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Beautiful, beautiful beer in every way. Delicate hop aroma, but unbelievably pretty, this might be the perfect ipa. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
