4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Growler. Whoa! Light amber ale. Fukní reeks of schticky hops. Nose is extract herbal, heavy; borderline medicinal. Burning, bubbly, coating tongue of pine, citrus, haze, and cleaning products. Malts balanced well. Still Huge. Bitter + Alcoholic

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Snifter at suttreeís. Cloudy orange with a white head. This is a sticky, resinous sweeter IIPA but is balanced out with a mammoth amount of hop intensity. Flavor stings of grapefruit with pine needles with a huge palate in the mouth. Finish lingers pretty long. I like it, pulls off the fullest body IIPA thing well.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Rattle ín Hum, NYC. Deep hazy range, heavy look. Big grapefruit, big resiny hops. Juicy finish, nothing too bitter here, or particularly distinctive. Quite nice DIPA.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft. Strongly hoppy and sweet aroma, piney, citric and fresh, with notes of honey, caramel, pine, grapefruit and orange, along with some herbal, grassy tones in the background. Hazy light-medium copper color with a fine, fading head. Flavor profile is similarly quite sweet and heavily hopped, with plenty of toasty, sweet malts, more caramel, honey and nut, with copious amounts of citric, dank, resinous and piney hops, some tropical fruit, spiciness and herbal tinges as well, finishing with a huge blast of hop bitterness and resin. Slick, smooth, warming mouthfeel, some alcohol noted here, body is huge. Very flavorful and even a bit imposing. Not much in the way of subtlety here, which I guess is why this is a "Triple IPA".

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Samís, Durham. Seems like every week the local is getting another killer tap-only beer from Cali, many of which are from this fine brewery. Hefty reddish pour, vaguely cloudy with a thick creamy head. Strong malts in the nose but mostly a big dose of grapefruit, resin, and pine. Fresh and potent. More sweetness to taste, but not overly sugary; rather itís like an added dimension of the abundant fruit that is the beerís main profile. Enjoyable.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
This poured a somewhat hazy bright orange color with a beige head. Aroma was of lots of citrus hops, light tropical notes, some dust malt too. Flavor was overly sweet, caramel, fruity stale hops. Somewhat of a disappointment.

Awesome well balanced dipa. Clean 10 percenter. Big hoppy nose, resiny but clean throughout. Mellow finish. Not boozy.
Similar idea to Ballast Pointís Dorado and just as successful i think.
