COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
First of the 7 Deadly BeeRs. Indulge your demons: Gluttony is the overpowering desire to consume more than one requires. 200 IBUs.
Gluttony Triple IPA overindulges the palate with profound malt, powerful hops and abundant body. Its deep decadent golden orange color presents an appetizing invitation for extravagant enjoyment. Its aroma entices with citrus, pine and alcohol while the flavor provides a smörgåsbord of sweet malt, fresh tangerine/grapefruit and a resinous hop character that lingers well beyond the finish.

Bomber from SHIG, thanks bro. Poured a thick chunky deep amber body with an average sized dense creamy eggshell colored head. Aroma of rotting citrus, old honey, sweet wort, dough, bad citrus fruit, rotting flowets. Big full body, creamy, some ABV heat lingers on the back of your throat. Flavor is thesame as the aroma. Not sure I love the triple IPA style.

Bomber from The Davis Beer Shoppe. Pours very, very hazy copper with a slight off-beige head. Aromas of barley wine with lots of resin/citrus - quite sweet. Full bodied or nearly. It begins with a burn on tongue tip. Think it’s hop, cause the heat is pretty much lost in one of the hoppiest things I’ve been aware of. Flavors go pretty citrus, seemingly including rind. How do we know this isn’t an overly hopped barley wine? Does it matter? Damn, but this is strong, bitter and hoppy. Finishing so hoppy it seems dry, though with all the malt it maybe shouldn’t be called dry. Wow.

Tasting at Matt’s
Cloudy reddish amber color, small head. Full bodied, rather sweet, with strong candyish caramel flavor, strong bitterness, some orange taste.
Finally, not a bad beer, but it tastes like an aged/old beer.

Ferris (6602) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 11, 2015
Bottle - Caramel and sweet orange. Cloudy orange with a decent white head. Orange peel, candied orange, caramel and a long finish. Not bad.

mcberko (8136) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 11, 2015
22 oz. bottle, pours an opaque amber orange with a small white head. Aroma is quite dry, with big resinous hops, citrus fruits (especially grapefruit), and dry bready caramel malt. Flavour brings out big grapefruit notes upfront, along with oranges and some lemon, with resinous hops, and moderately sweet caramel malt. Big n bold, with a high amount of malty sweetness and sugary quality on the finish. Well-balanced even if sweet, but though just shy of being a really elegant triple IPA. Good stuff, but not completely on the mark.

slowrunner77 (6403) - Reno, Nevada, USA - FEB 28, 2015
10.5% and 200 ibu. Pours thick copper. Smell isn’t dramatically hoppy. Lots of malt and spicy hops and a little heat. Expected more candied fruit and/or florals. medium to full bodied, fairly smooth for the abv. Flavor is good, but almost more barleywine like than IPA. Decent, but not for the price.

chinchill (2560) - South Carolina, USA - FEB 22, 2015
Lg. shared bottle at RBWG-2015 Hazy amber body with virtually no head. Very fruity aroma with a strong hint of orange along with lemon and lime. Flavor: hoppy and fruity but very mild for 200 IBUs. Feel: some heat from otherwise mostly hidden alcohol.

DrSilverworm (7806) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 21, 2015
Tasted during RBWG grand tasting. Hazy amber red orange color. Ring of off white head. Dots and bits of lace. A lot of caramel malt, mostly. Some resiny hop, not much left though. Bigger body. Light carbonation. Slick texture. Sweet taste, light bitter. Not fresh, I’m thinking
