3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: OCT 16, 2013 On tap. Totally clear orange golden color. Thin off-white head, with good retention, leaves good bits of lace. Big piney hop flavor, tropical fruit, spicy and caramel malts. Nice smooth lighter carbonation. Bigger body. Lightly dry finish, sort of sticky. Moderate bitter taste, light alcohol warmth in the finish, light somewhat spicy sweet taste. Solid big imperial IPA, but like a lot of "triple IPAs", this one has a pretty pronounced malt profile. A very big body, one to sip, not the most drinkable, but an interesting, unique hop profile to it. Worth trying, but I wouldn’t repeat it for the price.
