Tap at Beercade. Hazy orange pour. Kind of a kitchen sink of hops - all the usual suspects seem to be in here. A touch syrupy and sweet.

12oz can in tulip glass. Nice hazy orangey golden color with a medium head that laces the glass. The aroma is ok - a little bit of hop and a hint of tropical fruit. The flavors are much more expressive - pine hops, citrus hops, lemongrass, tropical fruits, bitter floral and biscuit. The 11% ABV is well masked with flavor.

RobertDale (4266) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - MAY 4, 2015
12 ounce can. Pours a cloudy gold with an average white head. Aroma of citrus, malt, and grass. Taste is lemon, orange, tropical, malt, grass, and spice. Some alcohol at the finish. A few too many IBUís for me to fully enjoy.

Indra (2707) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - APR 1, 2015
12oz. can. Lively, lightly sweet, citric, fruity and malty aroma, with notes of green, leafy hop, lemongrass, orange, faint pineapple, honeyed biscuit and touches of earthiness and peppery spice in the background. Hazy medium golden in color with a lasting, very fine head and matching lace. Flavor profile is lightly malty and sweet with plenty of citrus, tropical fruit and green, leafy tones, growing increasingly bitter and piney throughout, culminating with a hugely resinous, fruity, massively bitter hop finish, showing some definite peppery, warming alcohol here at the end as well. Somehow remains drinkable and agreeable despite these extremes. Mouthfeel is oily, warming and lightly prickly, body is certainly full but not overly huge. Nice complexity here, plenty of flavors to choose from particularly as it warms. Enjoyable. Apparently I like Summit hops!

rader58 (820) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - APR 4, 2015
12 oz can. Pours hazy golden. Aroma of tropical fruits, citrus, and caramel. Flavor of tropical fruit, citrus, pine, caramel. Good. Strong and delicious.

This beer kicks my ass. 11%. Thick and wet, with extremely high bitterness tempered by a citrus kick. Surprisingly, the sharpness of the alcohol is mellowed by the IBUís (which I find odd) and the flowery citrus, which makes this beer really easy to drink despite being so strong. A couple of these and youíre well on your way to being inebriated. Darker color; amber in the sunlight. I only tried a taster, but I immediately wanted a peppered steak to go with it. Not a party beer. Drink it slowly and converse.

This beer is dangerous! Probably the easiest drinking triple IPA that I have ever tasted. Although it is heavy on the hops and high alcohol content, it is not as thick/sticky as most and has a slight citrus flavor. Too smooth for your sobriety.

burg326 (4668) - Florida, USA - MAY 23, 2015
Poured a deposit orange color with aromas of resin, light hops, caramel and some makt. Flavors are light hops and pine with resin mostly malt and abv booze in the aftertaste.

Nice sweet scent considering the high ABV. Tropical and floral, with notes of mango and pineapple. Not overly bitter, more balanced that I was expecting. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

(Draught) Pours a cloudy orange body with a small white head. Aroma of citrus, pine, grass, biscuit, pineapple, and peach. Flavor of pine, orange, grass, and earth with a dry, bitter finish.
