4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Just a bit hazy copper colour, very small head. Incredibly strong flavoured and still quite balanced -for a hop head- richly fruity and very malty. Exceptional beer.
I forgot to say very much liquorice cough medicine

This is a big ipa. This is not for the feint of heart. I love taking this one to the skull.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Choice City Butcher. Appearance: finger of slightly off-white head, lasts, dark straw yellow, clear. Aroma: floral, light bread, resin. Palate: light-med body, bitter lasting finish, sticky texture, soft carbonation. Taste: bitter bitter and bitter. Overall, it is a triple IPA, so you are not looking for balance here and you do not get it. Very good for what it is, could not drink a pint of this I do not think, but very memorable.

With it's almost mild aroma, I was initially nervous that this was another hop bomb. Further from the truth I have rarely been. First bite is ultra bitter hops, with a smooth finish usually reserved for your standard IPA. If you're a bitter, hop fan this is a beer to try. Bomber to glass. Color is great, very little head. At 10% abv, this hopaholics dream will sneak up on you.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle - slightly hazy amber colour with large off-white head. Aroma has citrus hops, pineapple, pine and malts. Similar in the taste, full bodied, smooth. Very well balanced with a very nice and long bitter finish. Well hid alcohol. Excellent.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Golden dark varnish and hazed with floating...hops? Sediment? Looks fucken wild nonetheless. Neat fluffy ringed head with the thinnest off white film. Nose is like someone has taken what’s going on in the kettle when all the hops are added, scooped it into water balloon and put your nose out now joint with it. It’s jarring, pine stabs to the nostril sweet. Increibly sweet, but too much.
Initial taste is like someone has melted a dozen boxes of sugary cereal bars. Cornmeally rather than malty, Elderflower and oily. There’s a decent shunt of carbonation here, keeps this sweet floral tight knit vibe on top of what is hefty bitterness. That bitterness could be much worse, but there’s a weird grassy and earnest vibe dices this up enough.
There’s real split level in the hop boost here. A wee bit, at least initially, it’s like drinking the syruppy but articulate piney pineapple hop overflow. Then a massive concentrated hop quench, the initial taste a mere sweet heft malt impression.
You can’t really have much hop for the finish here, but it’s not quite the palate whiplash I was expecting. The almost clinical and medicinal hopness wanders off to a jasmine, floral and lightly aluminum tussle. Linger is cooling but a dirty bitterness that doesn’t ruin the next sip... How they’ve managed to keep such damaging edge to the Hop oils and not let it over concentrate the bottle to get to the UK has to be applauded. A different beast from any Triple I’ve had yet.
I was totally dosed by the Hops to the ABV, like drinking a redacted wine, there was very little burn at any stage. My drinking pardner said this was more noteable than Unhuman Cannonball but I forgot I was even drinking beer after this coated my palate.
Bottle, Beers Of Europe, Cheers LONick

Draft at the Hoppin Frog tasting room. Tulip. Pours an orange-copper with a mean white head. Head lasted some time and lacing was awesome. The aroma was powerful hops (no kidding) and citrus/pine. The taste was orange, lemon, pine, resin, floral and malty. The balance was well done and the alcohol profile was held in check by the balanced malts/hops. Finish is bold with the hops lingering for quite some time. Not very bitter at all. One of the best Doubles/Triples IPA I’ve ever had.

Bottle. Minimal white head, copper color. Assertive hop bitterness. Caramel and warm alcohol. Clean flavor. Deceptively smooth and easy to drink.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nose is malty with some hop fruits like sweet citrus, pineapple and mango. Pour is a dark copper/orange with a thin ivory head that dissipates quickly. Taste is balanced with a good present malt backbone and good hop bitterness. Hop notes are again tropical and fruity. There is certainly bitterness present which is on the tail end and is drying. Mouthfeel is medium. Pretty good IIIpa.
