4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Ok so I am nitpicking but for a beer called a Triple IPA, I expect more in the nose of the beer. I also get a little frustrated with a beer that is an IPA that is as cloudy as this beer is. That said, this is a wonderful beer. There are some great malt and roasted notes that compete admirably with the hops. In some ways I don’t even notice that is an IPA, because the hops are not super pronounced.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a dark opaque orangish red with a small white head. Malty aroma with a hint of alcohol and caramel. Its been a while since I’ve had a high ABV IPA that doesn’t smell like a tropical island. Taste follows the nose. Smooth medium body beer, really good. I saw where people could only drink 1, amateurs I’m going to see if I can finish the 4pk.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
2014/09/15 - Pours a translucent dark amber colour with a creamy, beige head that lingers and leaves minimal lacing. Aroma is huge toffee/sugary malt, caramel, pine, citrus, mild roast, wood and a hint of alcohol. Taste follows nose; sweet toffee and caramel up front, with a citrus and pine base and a woody, mildly boozy, roasted finish that is both bitter and sweet. Mouthfeel is oily with average carbonation and a drying, slightly warming finish. Very enjoyable. Love the balance between sweet, roasted and bitter.

Pours a dark burnt orange. Aroma of citrus, pine. Flavor of caramel, citrus, raisin, pine, spruce. Has nice flavor, but just too intense to enjoy fully.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle pour. Deep amber to red in color. Minimal head and lacing. This is a big and bold imperial IPA that doesnt feel much like an IPA. The feel is more barleywine - I know this has been said before but it is very close to the money. There is a sweet booziness here. Mouthfeel is smooth - the heat numbs your tongue and helps the beer open up as you get into it.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a big deep red amber, thin off white head. Aroma is heavy booze, toffee, caramel, pine, sugary malt, hop resin. Flavor is super sweet sugary malt & bitter hop resin. This thing is a monster, nose is aggressive toffee liquor. Not my favorite

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Appearance was clear reddish amber with off creamy diminishing 1/2 finger head, spotty lacing. Aromas are sweet pale, crystal, Vienna malts with slight orange candy, grapefruit and alcohol. Taste are malt sweetness upfront then gives way to slight orange, grapefruit, lemon, wood and warming alcohol. Palate are soft smooth creamy CO2 with full body, then lasting overly sweet finish. Just a tad too sweet for me.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A really nice beer, but overall killed by the candy sweetness. This could have been great. Caramel and toffee sweetness in the aroma, sweet malts in the flavor, a sugary malt bomb. No sign of the ABV though, although I suspect it will sneak up on me later.
