12 oz bottle. Aroma: malty and boozy, with hints of hay and caramel. Taste/Palate: thick and sweet; finishes with a long bitterness. It doesn’t get much better than this. Hark! Disgraced, naked angels sing the bittersweet lamentations of mortals. Does anyone ever read this shit?

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a yellow/orange color with a pine and citrus aroma. Taste is of grapefruit and malt mixed. A very easy drinking beer especialy for such high alcohol content. The alcohol content is well hidden amongst the citrus fruit flavors. The lack of bitterness was surprising for an Imperial Double.

Draft poured into glass. Great hoppy aroma (obviously). Pours an orange gold with a nice foamy white head that dissipates at a steady rate. Very hop foward with grassy pine and a slight citrus with a very bitter finish.

Green Flash makes some of the best IPAs out there and this is no exception. Very bitter with tons of spruce, some resin, and mixed tropical citrus. Bready malt backbone. Complex and underrated.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A 10.1% Triple IPA mail order from Antenna America (thanks Brian!). Served in a snifter it pours a remarkably clear and vibrant copper hue with minimal off-white foam. The nose is big earthy pine dankness with some fruity overtones. Medium bodied with a slickness to the mouthfeel which clashes slightly with the abrasive palate cleansing carbonation. The taste is nice and clean - tons of hops that give you a wide range of flavors tropical fruits, piney, bitter, dank, citrus and then a decent malty caramel sweetness from the malts. I was pleasantly surprised by this one, I was expecting something like an American Barleywine but I can truly say this really does feel like a Triple IPA. Nice.

Pretty nice, thick IPA. Golden appearance with a bunch of pine character. Some herbal flavors as well, but overall a well balanced beer.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle: Bright copper, topped with a finger of frothy sandy head. An absolutely gorgeous pour. Smells sweet and floral, oddly herbal. Something doesn’t jive, just right and it seems to get a little woody in the taste. Lots of floral and faint citrus, but there is a stale fruity taste that I don’t enjoy. Lingering hops finish.
