bhensonb (10348) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 29, 2013
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.

brokensail (9935) - Orange County, California, USA - APR 30, 2013
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 couldnít handle this.

marcus (6015) - Sacramento, California, USA - APR 12, 2013
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, itís really good.

joeneugs (2932) - Livermore, California, USA - JUL 6, 2013
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.

Clear golden in color... Aroma is sweet malts, sugars, citrus, hops... Flavor is intensely sweet, but balanced with a nice citrus and piney hop backbone... Amazing beer ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

dreadnord (1013) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 26, 2013
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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at capitol beer and taproom. Pours copper with white head. Taste is bitter and booze. Really sweet finish.

dresden (730) - Saskatchewan, CANADA - APR 23, 2013
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 itís still a bit much. Sticky mouthfeel but all around its a good beer for what they are going for.

Bule (574) - California, USA - MAY 31, 2013
On tap at Taps in Petaluma. Pours a golden color without much head. Great blend of alcohol, hops and sweetness. Great extra strong IPA.
