Bule (709) - California, USA - APR 17, 2014
On tap at Beercraft. Pours a pale amber color without much head. Mild hops and a lot of alcohol harshness.

This gold beer has an amazing grapefruit aroma. It hits your tongue really strong but finishes smooth and mild. Can't tell its 11%. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

GIJOE (597) - North Berwick, Maine, USA - APR 24, 2014
Pours yellow-gold with a frothy white head. Nose is pungent and not particularly pleasing to me. Like cedar gerbil litter in need of changing. Taste is mildly bitter. Medium body. Mild carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

krumbum (521) - truckee, California, USA - JUL 21, 2013
It is great for its kick, 11% goes down so easy. It is a slightly cloudy amber. There are nice floral hops on the nose. THere is a sticky hop front to the taste that fades to a bitter-sweet hop finish that stais the palate and fades slowly.

Bottle. Red. Sweet and delicious. Light as hell for the style. Light malts give way to super hop bitterness. Awesome ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Kroney (150) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 19, 2014
On tap at Enzo’s BBQ in Oceanside, CA. Pours a rich orange gold with a thin but dense white head that leaves good lacing on the tulip glass. Aroma is big orange, floral and grapefruit hops and a huge caramel malt backbone with some alcohol in the back. Taste is candied orange/tangerines, sweet malts and alcohol, but the alcohol isn’t overwhelming for an 11.3%abv 3x IPA. Palate is surprisingly refreshing and not sticky for such a big beer. Another well done IPA from Knee Deep.

JerseyHophead (20) - California, USA - JUN 13, 2014
Pours a fairly clear, golden burnt brown with slight head retention. Nose is intensely hoppy with some pine notes and some sweet malt. Starts with a bitter pine hop. It’s sweet with caramel malt on the tongue and a medium bodied feel. It finishes pretty boozy but has a sweet aftertaste. It’s fairly good but definitely stronger. It reminds me of a maltier hi-res but that’s probably the mouth feel and high alcohol content. Not a starter beer but for those into triples like myself it’s worth checking out. (I’d rank it below simtra)

pnellis (3) - - MAY 28, 2014 does not count
UPDATED: MAY 29, 2014 Poured into a tulip. Orange, amber, and clear. Moderate head. Tropical nose. Viscous and thick in the mouth. Sweet and dank on the front. Bitter punch on the end. Definitely a slow sipping beverage.
