4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Tap - 12.4% - at Capitol Beer in Sacramento, CA. Pours copper with a creamy white head. Aroma is citrus/fruity. Full bodied. Flavor is some brown sugar with a lot of citrus/fruit hop. Finishing on the non-dry side. It might pass as a highly hopped barley wine. Exquisite.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear golden pour with a white head. Intense fruitiness to the nose. Peaches and pineapple. Lots of bubblegum and caramel, some sugar, and alcohol. The flavor is very sweet. Tons of bubblegum, caramel, sugar, and tropical fruit. Peach, some citrus, and a resinous pine note. Alcohol warmth, syrupy, and somewhat bitter on the finish. Was okay for a small pour, but any more than a couple ounces and I couldn’t handle this.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Capitol Beer, Sacramento. Pours orange copper with a modest beige head and a fruity aroma. There is a thick almost syrupy caramel malt flavor with a carbonated bitter finish. Tastes like a hopped up barleywine. Whatever, it’s really good.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
4 oz. sample at Tap 25. I was expecting a brutal onslaught here, but was pleasantly surprised by a nice balance of tropical mango, melon hops and some background caramel malt. The flavor has more tropical fruit and caramel and thankfully avoids a lot of fusels. This is actually pretty drinkable for what it is. Definitely a more murky, fruity triple IPA, but still pretty enjoyable. I would try this again.

Awesome brew. Super malty with an intense hop palate. Great smooth and crispness. Perfect in a tulip glass. Light brown and thin head.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours golden orange with a thin off white head. The nose is caramel, oranges, roses and a touch of honey. The taste is very high sweet and medium bitter. 4 x IPA? Wtf is that. This is a strong ale. The texture is sticky. Like oil. The body is heavy and the finish is long.

Draft. Clear copper pour. Excellent citrusy hop aroma. Very sweet malt bill, lots of sharp hop bite but quite hot and boozy. This is certainly all to be expected, but it’s still a bit much. Sticky mouthfeel but all around its a good beer for what they are going for.
