3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Best by 3/10/14. Pours out a nice orangey pale color. Smells quite fruity, slightly tropical, with some grapefruit and pine. Not smacking me in the face with floral hops but they are there when taking a whiff. Tastes more tropical, pine and grapefruit with a slight sweetness from the ABV. Also some intense scorching bitterness on the back of the tongue creeping in the aftertaste. Palate is rich and full. Overall a delicious beer that only slightly disappoints in the aroma category and lack of the tropical hops one expects but still delicious.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a golden clear color with minimal head. Little bit a lacing left on the glass. Faint smell of floral hops and malt. Taste is hop forward with a nasty bitter bite, and alcohol burn. Off balance. For the price, I would pass. Would not recommend.

Bottle. Pours a copper color with a large diminishing head. Aroma of acohol and American hops, pine, citrus, etc. Flavor is extraordinarily bitter. Finish is phenolic and dry. Not as good as palate wrecker, Iím afraid. Maybe the hops cooked too long.

Bottle from Premier Gourmet in Buffalo.
Pour is a copperish colour with a small white creamy head. Lots of pineapple and pine in the aroma. Tastes awesome! Loads of grapefruit and mango flavour with a nice resiny finish. Super smooth and deceptively drinkable at 10.1%

Strong thick head on the pour. Fruit bowl once opened. Shifts to a malty citrus blend aroma. Taste very close to aroma, caramel notes complimented by the citrus. Slight throat warming from the alcohol. Beautiful lacing down the glass. Head remained until finished.

Bottle. 1 day ago. Dark gold with a super tight thick head. Huge dank pine and citrus. The taste adds big bitter notes and spiced malt. The 10% alcohol is present but, subtle. Tropical fruit also show up at times, mainly pineapple and mango. Awesome triple ipa.

Draught at Taproom at Bayview Corner, Langley, WA
Light amber color with creamy head. One of those Double IPAs with a strong animal character; itís full bodied and fairly sweet, with moderate fruity contribution and strong resiny final
Good but a bit cloying.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at Republic at Seven Corners. Tulip glass. Nose overwhelmed by hops from the start. Orange with no hint of haze. Alcohol struts its stuff throughout the taste but doesnít necessarily take over. Hop is the star here and the hop crowd is definitely not disappointed. Finish is kind of sweet like a double IPA. Itís a tasty offering from a brewery I respect. Iíll ride the green bullet over the silver bullet anyday.
