I was hoping this wasn’t another Hop Stupid. How is it that a beer with this much aroma and this much flavor be so clear? Extracts maybe ya think. I hate extracts.......but this tastes so fresh and real. It has to be fake but it tastes real. I guess the only way to get this much HOP POWER is with extracts. Aroma is out of this world. Cloudy would have been a huge improvement. Light orange/yellow and clear as glass. Pretty much no head. Crazy delicious pine. Finish is dry. Body is impressive. Like a pale and not syrupy like many hop bombs. Raspberry, peach, pineapple, stinky,. This beer is a ROCK STAR it’s art comes out in the flavor & aroma. Like a song you listen to over and over I could keep my nose in this for days. The aroma of this beer could bring me out of a coma.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear light copper coloured body with a nice, dense three centimetre tall just off-white head. Aroma of super pungent and resinous hops, pine, grapefruit and a bunch of sweet and alcohol notes - dominated by passionfruit and pineapple. Full-bodied; Sweet flavour at first of pineapple and resin with a lot of body and malt depth right behind with massive amounts of hops afterwards - dominated by pine and grapefruit. Aftertaste shows a ton of alcohol warmth, a lot of honey and other sweet flavours and more hops than both of those combined - literally bunches of hops in the mix, plus with the alcohol and body, this one really is extreme. Overall, a pungent and super hoppy beer, but with the name goes the flavour - triple ipa, and it lived up to the billing - tons of hops, but so much malt backbone to go with it; If you have someone to drink this this, you’ll be much better off, because one person alone with this one isn’t easy, and I can attest to that! I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Texas Liqour in Carlsbad, California on 19-March-2013 for US$10.99 sampled at home in Washington on 21-April-2013.

Bottle 3 weeks old. Clear golden with a foamy white head that laces all the way. Powerful simcoe and citra aroma. Man I'm a sucker for simcoe, probably because I hate cats. Taste is powerful hop bite, lots of citrusy green hops. Resinous sticky mouthfeel with alcohol well hidden. Nice.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
22oz bottle, purchased at BeerCraft. Pours a brilliantly clear, bright golden color; fine-bubbled white head with nice retention. Lots of pithy citrus here, quiet crystalline sugar and lightly warming ethanol, along with plenty of esters here: cotton candy, bubble gum, lots of fruit; seemingly fermented quite warm. Medium-full body; moderate, fine-bubbled carbonation; again, loads of warm-fermentation esters in this: bubble gum and cotton candy, lots of pithy grapefruit, firm bitterness; definitely more of a midsection than the hefty uber-IPAs I go for, but solid and tasty. Again, a whole lot o’ esters. Lasting bitterness in the finish, bubble gum and sugar.
