Dark copper color with a small head. Lucious hop aroma of mango and orange. Bracingly bitter, but not to battery acid levels. Lots of hop flavor: grassy, fruit, orange. Moderate malt and some caramel towards the end.

Huge grassy hop aroma, as to be expected. Deep clear golden color with large bubbles in the head. Immediate flavor is slightly syrupy and malty until the hops hit. Not nearly as bitter as I expected it to be coming from GF, but seems more hop flavor oriented. A slight bit boozy, more bitterness comes out in the finish. Carbonation is appropriate, nothing special to say about the palate. Solid enjoyable beer, but doesn’t knock my socks off like several other GF beers do.

Cloudy gold pour, thick white head. Nose is leafy, green, wet hops. Beautifully bitter. Middle is malty sweetness, sprinkle of hop body. Finish is full bodied hop bitterness. Alcohol is well hidden here, be careful.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sampled on draft at 3R6P this beer poured a dark orange-amber color with a medium sized foamy yellow-white head that lingered and left great lacing. The aroma was strong pine and resin with a tangy undertone. The flavor was bitter with a strong alcohol presence and fairly strong though rough pine, resin, black pepper, hot pepper, catbox, cardboard, yeast and a sour almost toffee undertone. Very long harsh and bitter finish of alcohol, pine, resin and pepper. Thick and full bodied. Ok.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle pours clear dark yellow with a thick white head and nice lacing. Great hop aroma of citrus and pine which I noticed immediately on opening the cap. Initial taste sweet malts followed by light fruits/citrus/pineapple. Finish of hop bitterness which is confident but not as much as you’d expect from a beer billed as a triple IPA. Thick palate, just a touch syrupy.
Surprisingly light and drinkable.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle - 08/27/2013 date. Pours hazy orange, large orange-beige head that dissipates with nice lacing. Aroma is light, notes of pine, citrus and grapefruit. Flavor is the same, light sweet and medium bitter, resinous and dank. Medium body, oily mouthfeel. Nice beer, but I am afraid that the tropical notes have faded in the six weeks in bottle. ABV extremely well hidden.
