4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
A-- Poured a clear Orange amber color. Little carbonation showing. Half finger of white head, Just splotches of lacing on the sides.
S--- Oaked candied orange that changed to fresh cut grass, mango, grapefruit, orange, and pine. Just a smell I could not get enough of. bended very well.
T-- Oak, citrus, and pure hoppiness to another level. Really liked how the flavors changed through drinking the beer. Got waves of mango, pineapple, orange, and lemon.
M-- Slick, oily and coating. Long lasting flavo. Great body to this. Reminds me of Sculpin from the brewery but with better hidden ABV. Great touches of oak.
O-- Insane beer. Just insane. Complex as heck and reminds me of good SB’s wine wise. Well constructed beer and a must for any 3X IPA lover.

Amber pour with a white head. Bottle shared by Long - thanks!! Slightly malty nose and a brilliant fruitiness. Massive fruity hip character, slight bitterness, mouthfeel is on the thick side. Nice.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle thanks to snoworsummer. Pours somewhat hazy, bright amber with white head. Aroma is mango, pineapple, dank, floral notes, faint caramel, faint oak, light toast, and some citrus peel. Flavor is extremely smooth and balanced given the hop content and ABV; bready and caramel malt base with layered floral and grassy hops along with tons of citrus esters. Medium body and carbonation.

From notes. This was shared at a tasting put on by @mikem409 on November 7. The pour is a beautiful golden amber color with an off-white head that falls down quickly, leaving some good lace. The aroma is beautiful. There is a great fruitiness with orange, lemon, mango, grapefruit. There is a nice movement through a tropical hoppiness and into a floral hoppiness. There is a little pine resin on the back end, which is just a great balance with the hops. The flavor is a little woody, but there is the blast of floral hops and a great citrus presence to go with the piney resin. The mouth feel is just great. Thick and clingy while coming off as light and airy. The aftertaste is beautifully hoppy and full of resin, and a great lingering citrus note with absolutely no detectable alcohol which is extraordinarily impressive for a beer at almost 11%
