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.

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.

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.

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.
