Smells very sweet malty and has a good hop balance much like a tripple should have. Its pretty hazy and golden in color with a small white head. Its full bodied and pretty sweet but the ibus kick the sweetness down in the aftertaste. It gives u a mouth full of tiny bubbles. Its almost like you can chew this brew. Not a bad brew. Very typical for a triple and the hop bitterness is Delicious.

Poured yellow/orange golden from the bottle. Very strong citrus and floral aromas starting from the pour which I loved! I got a tangerine flavor with light sweets and a bold hop taste left on the palate. Be ready!

Oh my! Citrusy aroma with a lot of depth in the smell with a hint of papayas and sweet fruit. Really intriguing aroma. The appearance is awesome and I have no complaints. What a perfect palate. Really. Citrusy front, decent sweetness in the middle and bitterness towards the end. The lingering taste is one of warm and citrus and a bit of bitterness. Knee deep brewery might be new favorite brewery. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

It is a light colored Triple IPA they say it 11.3 % but it does not taste it. it not real malty like other Triple IPA that I have had but it has a light taste with little light. Aroma is slight resin color golden, light sweetness, light bitter. Body medium body, slightly creamy, average carbonation, astringent, finish. As strange as it seem this is one of the High ABV. that you can get that I would not like to have more that one. But is is a good beer

Pours semitransparent golden orange with a thin off white head. The nose is light citrus, caramel, booze, bready, pine and tropical fruit. The taste is high sweet, medium high bitter. The texture is oily and slick, the body is heavy and finish is long. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bomber courtesy of Hopfilter. Pours a slightly cloudy orange with a decent white head and a bit of lacing. Aroma is faint, but I am getting citrus, pine, malt, and alcohol. Taste is much flatter than expected. Mostly malt, pine and alcohol. Actually though the alcohol isnít as overpowering as youíd think for an 11.5%er. Its definitely present and up front though. Not much of a finish. Nice hop bitterness for a second, then all malts. Full bodied, oily texture rich with hop oils, moderate carbonation. Not bad, but other than the high alcohol content this doesnít have anything special going for it.

sfontain (770) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 21, 2013
22 oz bottle. Transparent orange; large, pillowy white head; heavy lacing. Aroma bready, citrus, floral, caramel, barely vanilla. Flavor bitter and hoppy yet fruity; very strong bitter flavor throughout yet not completely unbalanced, somehow; alcohol warmth is present in the exhale but not 11 percent worth, so Iím calling that well-hidden. Thin yet smooth, frothy, and dense; moderately sticky but not cloyingly so. Iím generally not a huge fan of kick-you-in-the-face IPAís, but this is world-class as they go.

Light clear gold color with very small white head and little oily lacing. Aroma is weak- light citrusy notes- not much of anything. Flavor is weak- just a hint of bitter hops. Super bland- nothing too it. This is fresh too- only 2 weeks old.

Yowzers, look at those stats! This is my kind of Imperial IPA. Light amber in color with a very bright, off white-head, this wickedly awesome brew has a very potent aroma hinting of high alcohol and sticky-sweet hops. Itís simply amazing. The flavor is of high alcohol and intense, crystallized sugars - a combination that leaves a delectable stickiness on the lips. Very oily hops rule this beer and the palate, making for an acute, incredible, sweet, awesome, delicious IPA. It has a dense thinness to it much like as with a distilled beverage, warning you of its alcoholic content and requiring your respect. This is really a beautiful beer and very deserving of my respect.

Nose of aged hops citrus bland boringness. Golden pour thin head. Flavors of stale hops bitter w not much character. Pale aged malt and alcohol burn. Probably could have been fresher. Burny alcohol.
