4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
22 oz. bottle, sent from Chippo33 (thanks Paul), pours a cloudy opaque dull golden orange with a small white head. Aroma is full of tropical fruits, a blast of piney and resinous hops, and a big of caramel biscuity malts. Flavour is intensely fruity, full of peaches, mangos, and pineapples, truckloads of resinous hops, and a nice caramel malty backbone. Extremely juicy and very hoppy, backed beautifully with generously malting, ending on fruity and hoppy notes, leaving a wonderful astringency. A wonderful IPA.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
A nice hazy traditional amber color, a bubbling foam head, and some floating sediments. The aroma is very inviting. I picked up on fresh citrus, grapefruit, and hops. The flavor is similar to the Heady Topper but the Triple Play lacks the DIPA intensity. I find the difference in that gives the Triple Play its own great identity. Plus the hops are ridiculously good. I tasted everything I could smell. There was no surprises in flavor. It had a great citrus body. The finish has a hoppy bitter kick and is enjoyable if IPAs are to your liking. That in turn impacts the palate. Overall this was a great brew. Its worth getting your hands on a bottle.

Cheers again to Leighton for the New England haul. Light haze on this amber - gold beer. Small white head. Palate is light and semi dry. Light minerals. Touch of cream in the malt. Floral hops with a light orange - tangerine citrus. The floralness returns accompanied by a little pith. Semi dry finish with a medium bitter linger. Super drinkable. Very nice!

22oz bomber supplied by Nick... Thanks for grabbing me one! Pours a orange honey hue, slightly opaque with a decent white head. Smell is fantastic. Fresh citrus, sweet grapefruit and really clean. Taste is resinous hops with the grapefruit bitterness, orange peel at the end. Medium body with just enough carbonation to tickle the tongue. Another great IPA from Mr. Lawson.

Bottle @ Bruce’s. Cheers to Leighton. The pour’s a light amber color with a small white head. The aroma’s mango, orange maramalade, cotton candy sweetness. The taste is heavy mandarin orange, a bit of grass, summer field. Moderate bitterness on the finish. Light body, medium carbonation. Overall, a really simple set of flavors. Still, this is executed well. It’s a tasty beer indeed.

Light to medium sweet flavor, some toasty grass, bread, mellow orange, citrus peel. Medium bodied with fine, massaging carbonation. Lightly resinous finish, some toasty grass, pine, dry toasty pale malts, orange, hints of grapefruit. Pretty drinkable stuff, though not an especially bright IPA.

Cloudy yellow pour with a thin white head. Superb aroma of floral, resinous and citrusy hops. Amazing flavor of citrusy, resinous and floral hops, it’s pleasantly dry and there’s a solid bitter finish. The body is medium with a creamy texture and medium carbonation. This is downright amazing.
