Draft from Blue Dog. Hazy straw pour with minimal head. Tropical fruit, melon, hops in the nose. Not super hoppy, somewhat syrupy and cloying.

Draft at Khyber Pass. Hazy orange amber pour with a short amount of beige froth. Faint spots of lace. Giant glossy tropical citrus hops. Blood oranges. Pineapple cores. Mango skins. Coconut palms. Harsh dank grapefruit pith. Blonde caramel toffee. Strong hop resins. Explosive spicy finish hides the high ABV quite well. Big clever Imperial IPA.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Big beer but hardly any trace of the alcohol except for a slight warming in the throat. The aroma is malty sweet with some citrus. The flavor is nice but not as hoppy as expected. Good stuff from these guys.

Pours orange anger with a creamy beige head. Aroma brings juicy orange hops and perfumey booze. Flavors are huge resiny malt and candy orange hops with a bite, not zesty but a bit hot with the huge ABV for sure.

UPDATED: FEB 12, 2014 Growler from the brewery. Pours deep deep orange, fruit amber. Aromas of hard core tropical citrus fruit. Taste follows suit x10, very sweet candy tastes too. Bitterness builds up with each sip. Good not great. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Growler from the brewery. Pours hazy dark amber with a thin ring of white head. Aroma is pineapple, pine and citrus. Taste is huge melted Jolly Rancher malt base, orange and light pine finish. Alcohol is perfectly hidden. This is way too sweet to start but as it coats your palate the bitterness comes through more to balance, albeit not quite enough. Sticky, syrupy mouthfeel and seems slightly under-carbonated. Tastier than the individual components would indicate.

BBT3 tasting. From mini-Growler. Poured an orange/amber color with a small sized head. Citrus, floral, earthy, hoppy, caramel, and fruity. Some alcohol in the finish, but I would not have guessed close to 14% (does that mean I have a problem!).

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Growler from Brenton! Pours a deep red with slight tan head. Off for the style. Aroma of sweet cherry and some resinous syrup hops. Taste is overly sweet hoppy syrup. Cough syrup and high alcohol on the tounge. Not that nice.
