Pours Amber with no head. Little aroma, with flowers and pine. Taste is big and complex with grapefruit, apricot, pine, orange and malts. Full bodied. Warm after taste. Quite bitter, but balance with some sweetness. Very think texture.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours an almost ruby red with a medium white head. The aroma is biscuity, malty, pine and a quite strong alcohol. The taste is very strong malty taste, biscuity again and a punch you in the jaw and kick you in the nuts bitterness.

4/15 Batch. Pours a reddish color. Has a huge florals smell. Has a medium a palate. Has a sweet malty taste. A toasty nutty taste. Finishes off with a sweet but dry aftertaste. Almost cascade floral hop. This is interesting and complex beer to drink.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours dark orange, almost copper, with medium head disappearing fast. Aroma: heavily dominating malt aroma, paired with oranges, mandarins, some biscuits in the background. Taste: tons of malt followed by nice oranges, citrus and a brutally long (in a positive sense) hoppy palate with a warming effect from the alcohol. Overall a fantastic brew, however, I was hoping for the malt to be less present and more covered by tons of hops (particularly in the aroma). But to be fair, I must say that I am drinking this beer almost 11 months after bottling date.

Amber pour with big off white head. Huge hoppy citrus nose. Flavor is packed full of hops but the malt tries of come through. Big is big can be on this one.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Rating based on the first few sips. As with all monster IPAs, the bitterness quickly builds to the point that I can’t actually taste anything but until then this dank, juicy, herbal beast quite nice.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at home while visiting Jacksonville. Pours a hazy amber with an off white head. Sweet, dank, hoppy, caramel aroma. Medium body, medium carbonation. Toffee, lemon, pine... sticky, slightly sickly, stuff and pretty boozy, but nice enough.

4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bottle @ home, from Heinen’s, Cleveland, USA. Strong bit boozy aroma with cherry, plum and a hint of buttery cookies. Dark copper/red color with minimal white head and clear liquid. Strong taste with cherry, mango, some buttery cookies. Balanced with wide taste spectrum and long fruity hoppy aftertaste. Strong/medium body with medium/low carbonation. Overall, hyper taste and quality, although bit more malts would make it perfect.

Pours a really dark amber. Really good and easy to drink for a tripel. Not sure it is worth the price but really good.
