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.

22oz bottle thanks to Tim... medium cloudy caramel brown pour with a thin off-white head.... aroma was hugely citrusy with some additional pine resin and pineapple. some caramel malts also came into play but played a lesser role.... bitter pine hoppy flavor that lingers on the palate well beyond the finish. a hint of astringency in the end as well. just a hint of malt underneath it all.

golubj (1377) - San Mateo, California, USA - MAY 12, 2008
Bottle, shared by BrianK. Light amber pour with visible particles therein. Aroma is citrus hops and other nice floral hops. The flavor has floral hops, grassy hops, and substantial bitterness. Good version of the style. No alcohol noticeable.

PilsnerPeter (3029) - Flushing, New York, USA - MAY 12, 2008
Bottle at Paul’s Hoboken Gathering: Nice deep golden pour with floaties and a dense tan head. The aroma is pure resins/bitter hop oils. No fruitiness or nuances of hop character. Creamy body with a harshly bitter flavor. Oily bittering resins, and harsh peppermint. They get a 10/10 for bitterness but a 0/10 for fruitiness or hop quality and diversity. A homogeneous bitter mess. IPAs aren’t only about IBUs, they’re about utilizing the hop to attain full character and complexity.

Bottle thanks BrianK. This hop bomb pours amber and hazy. Aroma Hopbomb, pine, honey, and some sweet malt. Flavor is just that but with an incredible domination of 200ibu’s wreaking havoc on your palate, an experience thats for sure.

jarspag (601) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAY 1, 2008
UPDATED: MAY 6, 2008 Bomber sampled in mid April ’08....seeing how the first ratings were in April ’07... I can only assume this is a yearly batch? It sure didn’t taste a year old. Either way - I seemed to dig this more than most. This is hefty but crazy drinkable. Packed with a hefty malt dose, but manages to pull through the bitterness. Tangy fruits dance around with the sticky, caramel covered pine cones. This shit is really, really solid - gives me thought of fresh yulesmith amped up a notch. Considering they were going for such a fat beer, I can’t find anything extremely unenjoyable or wrong with this. Except that the fact that one glass is enough.

BlackDonald (1126) - Gulf Shores, Alabama, USA - APR 5, 2008
I thought this was just a little overpowering, more of a nod to the dumb downed west coast styles, nothing but hops here, floral to bitter, down to grassy and buttery in the finish. Has kind of a candied caramel malt backbone, but nothing can stand up to the hop onslaught here Very true to its name.

travita (4310) - Frisco, Texas, USA - MAR 22, 2008
Copper color with a decent white lacy head. Floral and slight citrus in the smell. A pleasing bitterness. Nice mouthful. Better and better as you keep drinking. Hops flavored with the citrus and grassy notes coming through.

UPDATED: APR 23, 2010 (22oz. bottle) Pours a hazy orange body with a small off-white head. Aroma of canned pineapple, grapefruit, peach, honeydew, apricot, and caramel. Flavor of hops (grapefruit, pineapple, pine, grass) and some caramel malt with a bitter finish.

Pours clear copper with a slight chill haze. A dense, white head built to a full two inches and remained for several minutes. The high krauesen of foam slowly receded to a partial skim coat on the surface, revealing exaggerated strings of lacy froth. Aromatics are floral and pungent. Tangerines and peaches make thier presense known, as well as spruce oil-laced grapefruit. A promise of alcohol comes forward under the tropical resins, and a light maltiness follows through. The mouthfeel is crisp, drying, and resinous. Sticky and sappy. The pallet is dominated by aggresive hopping. The bitterness is as subtle as a buzzsaw on the tongue, but does not cross into harsh territory. Loads of hopping in the flavor of the brew also. Heavy on the grapefruit, with the peach/ pear/ orange character in the background. Maltiness is at a minimum, but still adding a decent backbone to the weight of the hops. Finishes with an extremely lingering crisp dryness, grapefruit pith, warming alcohols and a tongue-scraping bitterness. A huge IIPA from Midnight Sun, and damn fresh.
