deyholla (8011) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JAN 20, 2013
Bottle thanks to Brian! Pours a clear amber with a gray head that dissipates to the edges quickly. Aroma has a good amount of grassy hops with a bit of sweet grains. Flavor begins with sweet grains with a growing grass note and a hint of resiny citrus.

BOLTZ7555 (2960) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JAN 20, 2013
Bright 24 karat pour with a small eggshell head. Nose of papaya, mango, dusty hay, pepper and pine. Flavor not as assertive or pleasant as the aroma. More caramel and malt than expected. Fairly spicy and floral with the alcohol showing quite a bit. A good but not great IIPA...appreciated Simtra more.

jcwattsrugger (11450) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - JAN 19, 2013
22oz bottle-shared by jtclockwork-aggressive pour gives a nice rice/foamy offwhite head-gold. A-tropical/perfumy, 2nd sweet lt/med malt-caramel. T-tropical/perfumy hops. Finish is cologne and long, then metallic. Stopped after 10oz so I wouldn’t drop the score further. 3.0

Tmoney99 (11821) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 18, 2013
Bottle. Poured clear copper color with an average frothy off-white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate to heavy complex westcoast hop aroma. Medium to full body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy smooth bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration.This is a very good beer.

jtclockwork (10660) - , New Jersey, USA - JAN 16, 2013
Bottle. Pours cloudy gold with white head. Nose is fantastic - lots of mango, tropical fruits and caramel malt with hints of perfumy hops. Taste is not good at all. Tons of cologne and perfume with some tiny semblance of IPA somewhere. Almost straight up cologne in the finish. Really disappointing. Body on the lighter side of medium for a triple IPA. If it wasn’t for the nose this would be closer to a 2.1-2.2 rating.

kaser (4005) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 12, 2013
Cloudy orange pour. Foamy. Crazy hoppy. Floral and citrus notes. Good beer. Very strong

bb (7382) - Alamo, California, USA - JAN 4, 2013
Bottle. Amber beer with a dark cream head. Big grapefruit and summer fruit saroma. Grapefruit and pine resin flavor with light caramel. Medium bodied. Good bitterness. Pine resin and earthiness lingers with grapefruit and light caramel.

ddemmingjr (773) - Chagrin Falls, Ohio, USA - DEC 31, 2012
Bottle: pours clear, dark golden, frothy white head that persists. Nose is pungent apricot, pine resin and candied fruits. More of the same with hop resin bitterness and stickiness on the lips. A little unbalanced with hop bomb but I still found this tasty. No ABV detected all considering ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
