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.

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

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.

Huge scent of citrus hops, alcohol, and a whiff of malt sweetness. Tastes like hop candy. Bitter yet sweet. Alcohol burn going down. Too much crystal malt, but it was a hop bomb.

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

GIJOE (621) - North Berwick, Maine, USA - MAR 26, 2014
Pours a dark amber with a thick, foamy, white head and generous lacing. Nose is a somewhat sweet, floral hop aroma. Surprisingly sweet to the taste although the hop bite is definitely there. Medium body. Soft carbonation. Very nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

>> Thanks DedicatedToFun. Clear golden pour, thick rocky foam. Sticky overripe mango nose, stanky. Taste is rich, extremely boozy, salty, cantaloupe, vodka soaked yellow fruit. Not bad, solid for 4xIPA.Though could only muster a few sips.

Almost indistinguishable in appearance from my parents’ coors light, though it is a bit deeper gold. Spruce, floral notes, some cat piss. Pretty smooth drinker, almost sweet but tempered by alcohol and bitterness. Flavor doesn’t quite come together and leaves a sticky, cotton mouth after taste. A noble attempt.

brokensail (10781) - 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 couldn’t handle this.
