3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A nice beer but way too hot. Aroma was outstanding. Strong resinous hops with a heavy grapefruit smell. Sticky pine as well. Pour was a cloudy medium gold with some sediment (plus!). Taste was very hot and alcoholic. Strong resinous flavor. Tastes like the scrapings from inside a bowl. Sticky pine and grapefruit were thick and dominating. Not much else going on. Light carbonation...a little disappointing. A little more bubbles would have made this beer more refreshing rather than a chore to finish.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 3/20
650ml bottle. This is just too much, 11.5 and only 74 ibus, all really tomatoey acidic hops.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle poured an orange amber color with a coating of white head that fell right off. Aroma has pines, resins, caramel malt, and some heat. Mouth feel is medium and the carbonation on the low side. Flavor gets the hops to a brutish level, resins, sweet malt, big punchy alcohol, and a lingering finish.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
12 fl. oz. bottle shared by my brother. Clear deep golden with a thin white head. Really boozy with very little hops our malt character. Might be too old. A bit more flavour than nose but still too much booze. Bad.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clear gold with a small white head. Smells of spruce and pineapple. Taste is bitter and sweet - citrus and pine hops with a mild malt backbone.

4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Had to try a triple IPA to say I’ve done it. A good-tasting beer, but a style with way too much alcohol to throw a few back. Intensely rich hops & malt, almost slightly sweet, I do not sense the citrus though. Good taste nonetheless.

Pours clear amber color. One finger medium lasting head. Aroma is of complex hops and grapefruit. Taste is sweet from the fruit but smooth malt flavor mostly. Not very hoppy on the taste. Smooth on the palate. Good beer just wishing for more hop taste
