@Basunen: en fantastisk stor doft ca ananas. Smaken är mycket trevlig och fruktig. Fin humle om inte kanske något rå. Mycket god.

4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Good night.....this is delicious! Aroma is floral and grassy with sweet buttery notes. Taste is floral and buttery maltiness upfront with some dank, piney citrus hitting you mid-palate. The aftertaste is lingering piney spruce hops with some grapefruit bitterness and a touch of sweet malt to balance it out. There is a touch of alcohol warming as it lingers in the follow through. The palate is silky smooth. Overall this beer is ridiculously good.....not sure why it is not in the top of most people’s lists. I have not rated in a while, but this was so good that I had to give it props. The bottle says 11.25% alcohol and 131 IBU......I am definitely feeling that alcohol in the last few sips, but the 131 IBU’s are very well hidden by the buttery malty sweetness to balance it out. I have had many "triple" IPA’s, but this is the best by far!

Grabbed a bomber first thing when I arrived in Yountville at the little market here. Wine schmine, amirite? Poured in a wine glass to fit in. Bottled 2/19/14, had 3/1/14. freshy fresh. Anyway, pours a beautiful clear golden color with a creamy white half finger head on top. Bursting aroma of pine, citrus, floral notes, honey and malt sweetness. Flavor is hop candy, grapefruits and pineapple galore, some pine, sweet malts backing this one. Surprisingly smooth for 130+ IBU, and just delicious. Big slick resinous mouthfeel with medium carbonation. While pretty drinkable this one is on the hefty side as expected. Lots going on in this one and glad I finally got to try it. Now on to the wine...

Dark orange-amber, large off-white head, soapy lacing. Grapefruit, resin, pine and a decent amount of pale and caramel malts. Medium to full bodied, moderate carbonation, assertive bitterness. Big and burly.

Sample at The Bistro DIPA-Festival, February 8. (my first one from this brewery)
Clear golden with a white head. Really bitter with grapefruit, some mango and grass. The finish was dry and bitter.

Very similar to PTY. I know. I just had the PTY 2014 release a day ago and had a Simtra afterwards. My wife and friend also agreed.
If anyone wants to know what PTY tastes like, get this beer now.
