4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: OCT 27, 2013 Hazy orange with about a fingerís worth of quickly dissipating white head. The aroma isnít as forward as I expected, but I get citrus notes, with strong resin and mango. The taste is aggressively bitter with more of the citrus, resin and tropical flavors. The ABV is hidden very well and almost dangerously too easy to drink.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours thick orange with small white head, strong smells of resin and pine. A bier as you would expect from a triple IPA, but not in an overpowering way. Very good

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours deep amber.orange, with small white lacing. Sweet, grapefruit floral hops in the nose. Sweet citrus, grassy taste. Boozy for sure with some alchy burn. Not bad but I think the way it comes together isnít my favortie. Still pretty decent.

Pours deep hazy amber into a snifter. Dank resin and molasses aromas. White head recedes to skim surface. Soft with dearly toffee, molasses and hot vanilla front to back.

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz. bottle. Aroma of minty and herbal hops with melon and lime zest undertones. Very interesting smelling. Other tropical fruit notes. In fact, I have been sitting here sniffing this for a while. Flavor is, unsurprisingly, quite bitter. Some mild sweetness rears its head to balance things out, mostly tropical fruit hops. Full bodied, mildly sticky mouthfeel, average carbonation. Nice, dry and bitter finish.
Iím not sure what a triple IPA is. Maybe this is one? Maybe this is a Douple IPA? Who cares. This is delicious.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle and draft, Piney resin aromas, pours a deep copper. Nice malt balance to counteract the extreme hop bitterness. One of the more "sessionable" 3x IPAs Iíve had. Will definitely buy more.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Gold to orange pour with a small white head, hazy. Grass, resin, pine tar hop aroma. Unfortunate mouth feel reminds me of gooey plastic. Intensely bitter, some sweetness floating around on the tongue. Just not my things. Hell of a boost though.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 oz bottle via a 4pack from Spirits. Poured a medium density orange body that doesnít have much effervescence but a nice head of dense foam of off white. Aroma is DANK, onion notes, wet pine needles, bad citrus notes, WEED. Medium to slightly fuller body with lighter to average carbonation and suprisingly easy drinking ability with the 10.1% ABV. Flavor is much like the aroma or eating a bag of dank weed, flavor is DANK, wet pine needles, some bad grapefruit meat, wood, Solid ass beer here

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured two fingers of head on a clear, medium straw colored body.
The aroma is amazing. Lots of tropical fruit: mango and banana; some pine and grapefruit too.
The taste has a big pine bitterness at the beginning, grapefruit in the middle, a touch of pineapple sweetness and finishes with a dry bitter note. Thereís a lot going on but itís pretty good.
The texture is softer with moderate carbonation.
Enjoyable. The smell along with worth it.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: NOV 12, 2014 Extreme notes of Christmas tree-cake with mango and pineapple
A honey-amber body supports a 2.5" white head which gradually fades to a mostly solid sheet with electric peninsulas and sluggish spots of lace trailing down the vessel
Iím greeted by a sizable, mellow sweetness embossed with pine tree featuring cedar highlights, mango, pineapple, citrus rind, and lime spritzed flowers, light sweet malts akin to white raisins, sugary sweet accents hint at green and yellow gummy bears, all on a coating, med-med-heavy body with just a touch of heat evolving into flavor-echoing residuals accompanied by melodies of fresh cut grass; wow, yah know what this makes me think of? Hop Slam. Except this actually slams my face with hops and doesnít remind of corn flakes and generally overrated beers
