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.

22, capped. Thanks, Derkruk! Pours cloudy copper with a lacy off-white head. Aroma of apricots, grapefruit, pine. Medium body, taste of citrus and pine. Pine resin finish with a dash of soap. Could stand a bit more body to balance out the pine.

22, capped. Thanks, Derkruk! Murky dark amber with lots of stationary bubbles. Dense and creamy tan head. Gorgeous pine and mango nose. Creamy, satisfying body. Lots of pine, resin, and grapefruit on the mid-palate. Resiny finish.

22 oz. bottle - pours cloudy and light orange; thick white head and lots of lacing; soapy and rich with aromas of sweet hops; intoxicating aromas as if often the case with MS brews; medium body and nice texture overall; very bitter and not too balanced with the aromas; some sweetness, but this is a pure bitter bomb

Hazy, dark peach color with an off-white head sitting atop. Great retention and lacing. Tangerine, grapefruit, orange, pine, a little pineapple, and some biscuit; hops are very resinous. Taste is like biting straight into an orange rind covered grapefruit, some pine comes in afterwards and leaves you with a long, sticky, resinous hop finish. Medium bodied and carbonation is a little less than medium. I think I like this a little more than my scores indicate, but either way it’s a very solid beer. Thanks to AKBelgianBeast for the bottle.

TAR (2449) - Lafayette, Colorado, USA - JUN 30, 2008
Rusty orange. Thick, clingy white head displays fine retention. Nose is composed of cotton candy, melon, dried pineapple, marmalade, resin-drenched grapefruit pith, and cakey malt. Resin overshadows much of the brighter hop nuances. Fluffy carbonation. Hops are immediately captivating in their explosiveness, yet the core of the body is severely tacky and oversaturated with dense, oppressively oily resins. Vibrant and succulent hop flavors take a backseat to the overemphasized bitterness. Poor attenuation and vitamin B yeast notes further tarnish much of the luster. Staunch grapefruit sting accompanies a spicy surge of alcohol which tingles the palate and unveils sparse notes of peach and blood oranges. Pine needles and candied lemon zest also offer up some poignant, well-defined spiciness, but fail to withstand the overbearing sappiness. Soundly structured malts contribute ample wafery sweetness and substantial heft. Body remains rather heavy and borderline cloying as the malt compounds the resinous weight. Dry and clean note of alcohol lends dryness as it momentarily lifts some of the oils, but the palate is now virtually anesthesized by the unruly hop onslaught. Finishes with continued emphasis on the pine and oily resin, with lingering swirls of bitter grapefruit rind and malty sweetness. While it does have some redeeming qualities, this resembles many hop-driven beers which sacrifice finesse and nuance for overly bold, one-dimensional character thanks to the copious amount of high-alpha hops used. Decent.

Bomber via Tim, thanks dude. Thought I shouldn’t sit on this big hoppy beers as much as I sometimes do... Pours Orange with a 1finger tan head. The head is pock marked with circles that look like mold and it makes sense to me for the name of this beer. Malt imbued hoppy nose. Nice balance with brutal hops. Big in you face pine and resin this is mixed with a nice blend of malts. Gotta say I like this. I don’t know many hugeanormous triple IPAs that are actually balanced. Fresh who knows what it would taste like this is still pretty killer.

JoeMcPhee (8357) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 28, 2008
Very bright orange beer, hazy/cloudy with a thin white head. Aroma is so awesome... juicy and fruity and loaded with grapefruity, mango, papaya and even more tropical frutiness. Lean bodied and very drinkable. Loads of richly aromatic hops over the lean pale malt. Cooling minty/peppery booziness on the back. A very tasty IIPA. Would love to revisit a full bottle of this one myself.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUN 24, 2008
22oz bottle from AKBelgianBeast on BA - thanks, Frank! Whoa, this is a hot one. It pours big, fluffy, and orange, reaching all the way down the coast to San Diego. A lot of the hops tend to get lost - at least with this kind of freshness - in the slight boozy character that creeps in, which is a shame. Solid malting keeps it relatively balanced, but the finish is quite dry and bitter. Sort of recalls Hop15 but a notch below, imho.

an apt name. a large malt backbone supports more ibus than the tastebuds can comprehend. as for the citrus its all pith the finish is long a bitter throughout. big and balanced its no joke at 10.5, don’t be a glutton.

Tasting at JoeMcphee’s. The absolute most bitter beer I have come across. 200 IBU’s!... forget about it. A ridiculous beer, over the top. Not really citrus hoped flavor, strait bitter. Alcohol well hidden.
