Draught at the brewery, 5/5/16.
Rich honey golden with strong copper hues and a medium-sized, thick white head atop. Clarity is high.
Take the DRIPA and up the peach, pine and grapefruit element to the point where it has a massive fruit-resin twang replete with pretty strong alcohol and heavy caramel. Yep, it’s a triple IPA. Why this "style" continues to get brewed is beyond me, but here we are.
Syrupy, heavily caramel-laden texture with as much huge sour resin burn as you can imagine. Ample carbonation, I guess? Not as bad as some examples (Devil Dancer, Captain Lawrence) but that’s saying very little.

4 oz. pour, on tap at the brewery’s taproom in Warren, Michigan. Consumed on 4-21-16. Pours a hazy gold with cream to beige head. Thick lacing. Cereal aroma. Hoppy but surprisingly weak and unremarkable aroma. Scent of milk, verging on spoiled. Much too sweet in taste. Dry in the finish and aftertaste. Far over-the-top and unbalanced in flavor. Full body. Smooth and lively in the palate. Overall, not my thing.

’15 bottle from flandersned-thanks, Steve! Clear gold. Nose is floral and light orange and pine. Taste is medium bitter with flavors of light malts, citrus/juicy hops, super clean, and absolutely no hint of the alcohol. Pretty amazing stuff.

Beerman6686 (6184) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 8, 2016
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 (1318) - 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.
