3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap in Lancaster. dark golden color with white lacy head. Aroma is boozey with tropical fruits (pinapple and citrus dominate). Maltly and a bit bitter up front. Mouth coating sweet palate. Well balanced big bitter with big maltyness w/o going overboard with either. Strong alcohol- needs to be sipped and savored. Nice example of a DIPA.

Orange colored body, medium sized off-white head, soapy lacing. resin, grapefruit, and then a minty-vegetal-like aftertaste. Medium bodied, a little sweet and boozy, moderate carbonation. Not my style of triple ipa.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at the pub. How could I not order this beer with a name like this? Clear orange with a little sticky white head. Nose is pine and grapefruit. Mouthfeel is moderate and sticky. Taste is sweet and all hops. Mango, pineapple, orange, grapefruit ale all very present. Mild alcohol and bitterness bring up the rear. This is one massive West Coast IIPA. Tons of hops but very drinkable. Couldn't tell the abv at all. I would surely drink again.

The nose has some tropical fruits, citrus, and quite a bit of alcohol. Flavor is similar. Some malt in the background and quite hot. Fairly bitter. Medium body with average carbonation. Hop character is overwhelmed by alcohol.
