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 smörgĺsbord of sweet malt, fresh tangerine/grapefruit and a resinous hop character that lingers well beyond the finish.

Bottle. Thanks to hopdog for sharing the bottle. Pours a golden maber body with thin head and some floaters. Aroma is of nnice citrus, grapefruit, sweaty. Taste is bitter, citrus hops, light sweet malt. This was an assault of hops on the tongue. Nicely done.

hopdog (8773) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 18, 2007
22oz bottle acquired in trade with puzzl (thanks!). Poured a medium orange/amber color with an averaged sized off white head. Initial pour was crystal clear with the subsequent pours clouding and included floaters. Aromas of melons, citrus, pine, and caramel. Tastes of citrus, lots of grapefruit, pine, and just a trace of caramel. This one was one hop bomb (which is not a bad thing for me). Nicely bitter with a very light malt balance. Light alcohol in the finish but not giving way that it was 10+%.

egajdzis (5253) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 17, 2007
Poured a hazy, amber color with a small, off white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of floral hops, pine, caramel malts, apricot, tobacco, and orange. Taste was super bitter, grapefruit, wood, light resiny pine, spicy tobacco, with faint caramel, and medium alcohol.

TomDecapolis (4427) - Lawrence, Kansas, USA - JUL 17, 2007
Thanks to hopdog. Pours a translucent golden amber with a medium bubbly off white head that left some lacing. Aroma of orange, caramel malt, various other fruits, some pineapple. Flavor of citrus, pine, grapefruit, lots of hop bitterness with a decent balance of caramel malt. Bitterness really lingers.

mkobes (2140) - paramus, New Jersey, USA - JUL 3, 2007
Bottle at tasting. Deep orange in color with a nice white head that left a nice lacing on the glass. Malty earthy caramel aroma. Grapefruit citrusy hops. Malty and sweet flavor. Orange and floral notes. Finish is bitter. Medium bodied. Sweet. Very nice. Drinkable.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAY 2, 2007
Pours a transparent copper orange with a full-lacing white head. Aroma of lightly sweet earthy caramel malt and some mildly grapefruity hops. Body starts fairly full, viscous and sweet, with plenty of bittering grapefruity hops and a drier, mildly warming finish. Needs more flavor and aroma hops, but otherwise a pretty big beer.

Pours a deep amber color with a white head. Aroma is caramel, with lots bitter citrus hops. Flavor is some malt with a big bitter hoppy finish.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - MAY 2, 2007
Poured a lightly hazed amber color with a small white head. The aroma has a light citrus and a good amount of pine. The flavor is piney with some grapefruit. Decent but very short caramel sweetness. Then dries out quickly with a moderately bitter finish. very nice warmth.

awaisanen (1304) - Fond du Lac, Wisconsin, USA - APR 20, 2007
From a 22oz Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy, coppery honey color with a healthy layer of thin bubbled white head. Huge hoppy aroma with some lemony spruce resins. A little bit of a metallic character with some dried white onion skins. Medium bodied, crisply carbonated mouthfeel. Sharp, bitter white pine flavors start out the flavors with some white grapefruit rinds. A little bit of fresh hop buds linger in the final smack. Extremely hoppy and huge, but definitely on the harsh side. Kind of like chewing on some Columbus whole hop flowers. I definitely don’t have the desire to consume more than one of these back to back, but hats off for packing so much perceived bitterness into a beer this big nonetheless.

mds (2194) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 15, 2007
Bottle. Orange-copper body with a white ring of soapy head. The aroma is very sharp and resinous along with soapy, sweet bread notes. Big, alcoholic body with ludicrous piney hops and grapefruit. Sugary in the middle for sure. Really huge but still quite good.
