4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured from 22oz bottle from my good buddy DpNyby for my birthday. Pours a cloudy amber color with foamy white head. Aroma is some Nelson hops, some cedar/pine notes and grapefruit. This has a huge malt backbone...sweet with notes of grapefruit and some tropicals. Nice work.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the source. Pours with a lightly hazed orange hue with a small, off-white head. Aromas are pretty great; nelson hops. Some perceived sweetness from the tropical fruit notes, light dank and pungent, medium citrus. Some dextrin malt character. Flavors are of citrus, papaya, passion fruit, medium alcohol, light citrus. Medium dry (could possibly be a touch drier). Lively, somewhat dry, warming. Great stuff.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at urge. Orange amber with light head that completely disappears. No lace no ring no nuthin’. Nose is big sharp bitter hops. Very even and smooth nose. Taste is big full sweet citrus and sugar hoppiness up front. Turns to sweet medicine and bitter hops. Floral to sharp. Gooey back. Not over the top, but very sharp and flavorful. Right up there with other great 3IPAs. Nice.

UPDATED: SEP 26, 2012 On tap at Urge as part of their Triple IPA days. Pours a cloudy orange-amber with a tan head with decent lacing. aroma is super hoppy with a lot of grapefruit, pine resin, spruce, and some malts in the background. flavor is dominated by hop with ton of citrus, and pine, with some caramel and biscuit malts in the background. Has a medium-full body with a creamy mouthfeel and a nice dry, bitter finish, with the 10.8 abv nicely hidden and a nice hop bite. overall, a very nice triple IPA from a relativity new and unknown brewer.
