This brew is ridiculous. So good on the nose and palate alike. Very well balanced for a high ABV.

Pours a great red mahogany color with a short-lived head. Aroma is floral hops and caramel malts. Pretty balanced aroma, actually. Taste is hot and boozy up front, then some sweet malts, followed by more alcohol. Mostly booze overall - much more than hops or bitterness. This is not a triple IPA, but rather a hoppy barleywine.

Poured dark hazy copper with one finger head. Strong citrus notes. Smell some alcohol on the finish. Tastes great. Grapefruit and HOPS. A monster of a beer. Very drinkable for 12% abv. Another great founders beer. Havenít had a bad beer from them yet

Wow, Hang on to your seat. Limited production. Lots of Hops (I like) and kick your butt ABV.

This bold beauty is surprisingly easy drinking. True amber color and big light yellow head. Brutally bitter, but perfectly lovely, this boozy beer will test your will but hug you at the end.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a clear chestnut brown with a slight off white head which is gone quickly......aroma of mash, wine, malty breadiness......taste is sweet, wine, pine, bark, malt overdose, with heavy but not obnoxious bitterness finishing very sweet. For a triple, very well done, itís a well balanced overuse of a lot.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
The bottle pours dark amber tea color with some red tones, small amount of tan foam. Rich, deep aromas of caramel, honey, burnt sugar, pine sap, whiskey, grapefruit. The flavor is sweet and boozy, warm, with toasty bitterness. Hoppy twang does itís best to balance the intense sweetness and alcohol burn. Itís got a syrupy mouthfeel with fairly low carbonation. It finishes sweet, eventually closing with orange and honey, but some bitterness. Itís comparable to Dogfish Head 120 Minute IPA, but the flavor profile is a little more low-note, deeper and richer. 120 Minute is a bit more wine-y.
