4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Got in a BIF from beerloserLI. 12 ounce bottle into tulip glass, no bottle dating. Pours slightly hazy golden orange color with a 2 finger dense and fluffy off white head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice dense soapy lacing clings around the glass, with some light streaming carbonation. Aromas of big tangerine, pineapple, apricot, mango, lemon zest, orange peel, citrus rind, pine, honey, caramel, toasted bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Very nice aromas with good complexity and balance of big citrus/tropical/piney hops and moderate malt sweetness; with good strength. Taste of big tangerine, pineapple, apricot, mango, lemon zest, orange peel, citrus rind, pine, honey, caramel, toasted bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Good sized pine/citrus rind bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of tangerine, pineapple, apricot, mango, lemon/orange peel, citrus rind, pine, honey, caramel, toasted bread, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Damn nice complexity, robustness, and balance of big citrus/tropical/piney hops and moderate malt sweetness; with a nice bitterness/sweetness balance and no cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a very resinous/sticky and moderately slick mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is fairly well hidden with only a light-moderate warmth lingering after the finish. Overall this is an excellent Triple IPA style. All around great robustness, complexity, and balance of big citrus/tropical/piney hops and moderate malt sweetness; and smooth to sip on for the big ABV. A very enjoyable offering.

Bottle. Pours a hazed golden amber orange with a large white head. Bold hops on the nose, melon and citrus, with a thick malty backbone. Medium bodied, malty and sweet, big warm alcohol and spicy hops. Warming alcohol on the finish, long spicy grapefruit. Very big, very malty.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Moderate roasted and caramel for the malt, heavy pine and grapefruit peel for the hops, light soap for the yeast, with dried light fruits and a hint of sulfur in the background. Head is small, frothy, white with good lacing and good legs, and is mostly diminishing. Color is slightly hazy amber. Flavor is lightly to moderately sweet and acidic, then finishes lightly to moderately sweet and heavily bitter. Palate is on the fuller side of medium, oily, with a fizzy carbonation and a moderately alcoholic and lightly astringent finish. Definitely more powerful than an average DIPA, and full of all things hoppy.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Rich golden color with nice white head. Aroma is there but not overbearing. Hop flavor pushes through and well outshines the bitterness, which I like. Medium body with good drinkability to it for a big DIPA. Not my favorite of the night but definitely not the worst. I would order again.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a deep amber with a medium dense white head which lingers......aroma of citrus, orange peel, melon.....taste is dense bread, booze, slight heat, syrupy mouthfeel but finishes very clean with little hop taste and slight bitterness. Either very well rounded or missing something, not sure which.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Location: 12 oz bottle from Buy Rite, 5/10/15
Aroma: The aroma has some orange/citrus, a bit of stale hop, and notes of rubbing alcohol
Appearance: It pours a rather hazy orange color with a thick foam of off-white head and heavy lace
Flavor: Tastes much the same, lightly sweet, slight alcohol, and moderate to strong bitterness
Palate: This one is medium bodied, with a soft carbonation, and a long, dry finish
This one sort of missed the mark. The hop strength and depth of flavor just donít come through well enough. Hey, at least it is a great looking beer. Iím generally a fan of Captain Lawrence, but this was a miss for me.

Amber pour off white ..... Aroma of resiny and rindy hops, booze and some caramel malts ... Taste is spicy, thick and comes with some heat .... Very acidic hops, malty, rindy, bitter and resiny has a floral punch. Strong stuff boozy ... Finish is smooth and bitter with a long lingering burning bite ... Interesting stuff big beer for sure
