Zum ersten mal in New York City getrunken und begeistert. Ein richtig krass gehopftes I.P.A. dass seinem Namen alle Ehre macht. Geschmack ist süßlich
malzig mit ordentlichen Hopfenaromen. Durch den hohen Alk.-Gehalt wärmt es richtig von Innen.

Draft - Caramel malts and some resin with some vinous notes. Clear copper with a rich beige head. Boozy caramel notes, vinous and some hoppy bitterness. More like an American Barleywine.

Very good, but I’m still missing the point with triple IPAs. The reason why is that they get syrupy and resiny with the higher ABV. I’ll stick with DIPAs.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma: Sweet, malty nose.
Appearance: Cloudy, dark-ruby amber color. Thin off-white colored, one-finger head that disappeared almost instantly. No lacing.
Taste: Malt. Caramel. Grapefruit. Cherries. Hops tempers fruity taste well. Balanced. Hops not terrible distinctive for a triple IPA.
Overall: I poured this 12 oz. bottle into a glass in which I like to drink beer. The beer was bottled 5/20/2014 (opened eight months later) which may explain its weak carbonation. Well balanced for 12% alcohol but doesn’t drink as big as a I would imagine a triple IPA would. RateBeer member Barnoloid summed it up well, "...IPA that doesn’t feel much like an IPA. The feel is more barleywine." #respectbeerbrethren.
