Bottle from Ales by Mail. Amber pour with a white head. Rich floral and citrus nose. Nice. Oozes booze in the flavour. Tongue tingling flavours of bitter citrus and fresh herb. Quite a throat warmer. Huge, boozy finish. Exceedingly tasty.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Appearance: clear pale amber with three fingers of rocky light tan head, good retention and moderate lacing. (4/5) Aroma: floral/herbal, tropical fruit, Belgian yeast, caramel/toffee malt. (7/10) Taste: moderate sweet, strong bitter. (7/10) Palate: full and sticky body, moderate carbonation, emphatically boozy finish. (4/5)
A beast that certainly does not believe in hiding its light under a bushel. Big and bombastic in every facet: big sweet, big bitter, big head, big caramel colour, big body, big booze. They call it a “Tripel/IPA”, and it certainly has aspects of both styles, but I don’t think you’d be far wrong thinking of it as a “triple IPA” in everything that really matters. (Hops and booze. What? Is there anything else?) Lacking in subtlety - but so am I, so I like this a whole bunch. Kinda reminds me of Arrogant Bastard, actually… (15/20)

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a cloudy gold with medium white head that lasts. The aroma is yeast, grass, and hay. Medium mouth, boozy, yeast, earthy, honey, light bitterness, good.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Location: 750 ml bottle shared from State Line, 2/9/15
Aroma: Heavily Belgian nose, some spice, clove, banana, candied sugar, and some dark fruit
Appearance: A slightly cloudy orange pour with a small off-white head and some sticky lacing
Flavor: Tastes along the same lines, heavy spice, sweetness, finishes a little bitter and more spice
Palate: The body is fairly full, sticky mouthfeel, average-to-lively carbonation, and a long duration
This one leans much closer to the Belgian yeast side than it does to the IPA. Heavy and sticky. If you promise in the label that you "hopped the (expletive deleted) out of it," I need more hops than this.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at Brouwer’s - turbid orange - nose of juicy, citrusy american hops, place some tropical esters - low carbonation - sweet and intensely.tropical in flavor - noticeable alcohol, but fairly subdued for something so.strong - light phenolics late that play off the hops pretty well - good for something so.strong.

4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
750 ml bottle split. Pours a cloudy orange color with a foamy head. Incredible sour citrus tangerine aroma that had me hooked right away. Grapefruit and citrus forward flavor with a nice belgian yeast background. Really nice balance of sour citrus and spices. What an amazing beer. Very well done. Loved it.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Rating #1082 - April 7, 2014 -Bottle from CBI - 12% Clear golden pour with a giant head with decent retention. Lots of grapefruity citrus aromas erupt out of this gorgeous brew.Taste is definitely full bodied, good yeast character, and just enough spice to be pleasant and refreshing. Generously hopped but not weightily bittered. Phenomenal.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
I found this beer very quaffable. This triple IPA has a very nice golden amber coloring with a white head. The aroma is sweet, without being cloying, with a strong floral smell. The flavor is more on the malty side, and even though there is a high alcohol content, it is barely detectable. This beer finishes dry and leaves you wanting more.
