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.

2.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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

Solid. Vegetal at first dirnk. Subsequently it becomes more of a bitter bomb especially for the abv. Impressive.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
22oz bottle from Bine and Vine. 11.3% what!!?? Will this rock my world or what? Well it pours out with a crystal clear copper body with thin gold edges and supporting a thin near white head of foam. The aroma offers up a bold mix of malt sweetened pine and citrus hops and a bit of mango like tropical fruitiness around the edges. Overall the aroma seems timid in strength and struggling to get out of the glass. The taste is thick with bitter hop resin that seems to be restrained, poorly, by malt sweetness. The hop bitterness is coming from firm to robust levels of pine and grapefruit and some mango like hoppy goodness where a thicket of malt sweetness tries to smooth out the bitterness. This is a pretty darn good beer.
