Pours a dark amber lil white head, smells of toffee, Carmel and wild strawberries jam. Tastes like sweet hoppy resinous, fruity, with slight pine taste. Well balanced and pleases a hop head palate. Leaves you felling warm and fuzzy

Great triple ipa. Very clean taste and mouth feel. Not malty like other triples. Good heavy bitterness that isnít too harsh.

A hazy orange beer with off-white foam. Pine and citrus with caramel accents. The body is more of a medium and the carbonation is just right. Definitely not the full review. Oh no...

Was given this the day after first bottling. Pretty great 3xIPA. Really rich, dank hops in this. 11.5% ABV is hidden really well and the malt bill is subtle but present. Really great beer. Iíd love to try this side by side with the Simtra and even Pliny the Younger. I donít think itís far off from that territory.

Wow this is bitter! Incredibly resinous, biting bitter grapefruit oil, and sharp pine smack you in the face. There is a underlying medley of tart pineapple and mango. Aroma is stanky, danky, astringent pineapple, grapefruit peel and pine. A perfect looking unfiltered pale ale - opaque tangerine orange with a high alc looking large bubble white foam head. Feels refreshing, medium body. Overall this is a fantastic, bitter bomb of a 'triple' IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A - Pours a clear golden-orange with a finger of frothy off-white head. The head fades down at a normal pace leaving behind some lacing. S - Aroma is full of grapefruit, citrus, pine, and grassy hops with sweet caramel and biscuit malts and some booze. T - Starts off with a mix of grapefruit, pineapple, tropical, and citrus hops, bitterness, and some sweet caramel malts. Through the middle, pine and grassy hops come through with some more resiny bitterness and some biscuit malts. The finish is a mix of grapefruit, tropical, and grassy hops, resiny bitterness, sweet caramel and biscuit malts, and some booze. M - Full bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth with a dry, bitter, and warming finish. D - Very drinkable. Really nice big hop profile throughout with good bitterness and enough body to balance.
