Poured a lighter orange color with a white head. Aroma was big hop oils, perfume almost, and some caramel sweetness and booze. Flavor was very well balanced, almost like a hoppy barleywine, not too sweet, and bitterness is somehow held in check.

Cheers to goryskewych for this bottle. Cheers, George! Pours a clear yellow with a white head. Nose is big syrupy citrus, some light caramel, and piney bitterness. Flavor is similar with huge citrus, big citrus, and caramel with some pine. Big in body and lingering bitterness. Yowza!

chucklemation (1038) - Royal Oak, Michigan, USA - DEC 31, 2015
Pours a dark gold color with a thin white head. Aroma is citrus, grapefruit, floral hops, and resin. Flavor is some citrus and floral hops and resin. Has light bitterness and a syrupy body. This is good, but for being a "triple" ipa it doesn’t really set itself apart from other ipas.

Tap @ Kuhnhenn: Rating from the Summer Solstice 2013 release. Deep amber & woody brown body, MUCH darker than DRIPA (& most other DIPAs for that matter) but it does have exceptional clarity. No haze at all. Still retains a fluffy & foamy bone-white head that settles to a skin quickly. Aroma loaded with citric hops; grapefruit, tangerine, lemons, pine, resin, herbal hop oils, & mounds of grassiness. Slightly toasted malts, but not as much as I’d expect. However the flavor showcases them much more. Burnt bread, caramel sweetness, alcohol warmth, residual sweetness... Much heavier on the palate. Still has a huge hop presence, though; mango, pineapple, grapefruit. Pungently dank & oily mid-palate leading into a mish-mash of sweet toasted toffee malts & bitter citric hops in the finish. Imagine if DRIPA were heavier, sweeter, & less dry. You have TRIPA. But one of the things I love about DRIPA is the dry abruptness & its ability to feign loft. TRIPA is good. Compared to most other "extreme" or "triple" IPAs, it’s REALLY good. But it doesn’t hold a candle to DRIPA overall.

SpongeRuiner (1050) - Michigan, USA - FEB 5, 2015
Poured on tap at brewery. Pours a golden wheat color slightly foggy. A white spotty laced head. A sharp aroma of hops. An intense hop tingle right upfront. Very smooth considering the style. Good stuff.

Fritz123 (1533) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - FEB 1, 2015
Overall this is a really good beer upfront. Shared with Nick and Dan at the Pig. Poured a nice cloudy yellow-orange with a thick head that lasted and laced. The aroma was big hops, citrus such as grapefruit and mango, heavy malts. The taste was quite the same with serious heavy fruits, big hop profile, some bitterness, and a big assed malty backbone. Well balanced, interesting flavors. Different from most other big IIPAs.

Yellow pour, white head. Tropical fruit notes, lychee, mango, light bitterness, caramel. Interesting beer.

Smell is fruity tropical. Taste is very hoppy with light tropical fruit. Medium to high carbonation with some foam.
