3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Brouwer’s Cafe, pours a hazy golden orange with a small beige head. Aroma brings out loads of pine cones, a little wood, and some floral hops. Flavour brings out the same, with loads of pine and wood, with just enough caramel malt backbone to provide a lingering sweetness. Great stuff.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap @ Naked City. Pours clear dark amber with very thin white head. Aroma is big sticky sweet malt and just a hint of floral hops. Taste is huge sweet caramel malt, and big earthy bitterness from the hops. Not a lot of flavor from the hops, maybe it’s dominated by the malt, I dunno. Boozy flavor, though doesn’t seem quite 10.8%. Ok, not great, but glad to see more triple IPAs out there.

Draft at Uber. Pours clear amber/dark red. Small head leaving behind irregular lacing. Aroma of citrus, pine, fresh cat pee. Yum. Soft carbonation, slick texture, medium/full body. Nice sweetness throughout, with a nice lasting bitterness. Smells and tastes especially fresh. Quite nice.
