Can thanks to a trade! Pours a clear gold with a touch of orange and a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of wet grass with some earthy grains but not overly hoppy. Flavor has a good amount of grass with a bit of resin and an earthy grain backing. Seemed to lack a bit of punch for a "triple IPA".

Can thanks to Doodler. Thanks for the canned goodness! I’ll give a proper rating from a can to a tulip though I thought this beer was rad while drinking from the can in the middle of nowhere camping. Pours a very light golden with big white head. Aroma is sweet and citrus plus stonefruit when it is just 5 minutes from the fridge. Very nice. Taste is nectarine skin, slight pear, some sweetness and light malt at the tail end. The hops are balanced and the bitterness isn’t there. As the beer warms it falls apart. Naturally, more flavors come out that aren’t as pleasant. Slight vegetable traits, some peas to be specific, come out. I enjoyed this much more from the can and then really cold. Not the best endorsement for the beer as I second guess myself.

Dang. I usually love big IPA's, but I'm not a big fan of this one. Dunno what hops they used, but it smells like bong water. Also an unusual hop flavor - almost like liverwurst. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Hazy golden color. Little white head, went away pretty quick. Doesn’t surprise me that much. 11.2% Aroma is carmel, tropical fruits, strong hop presence. Taste is medium body, good punch of hop bitterness right up front to middle of the tongue. The sweetness and carmel rounds off the taste really nice! The finish is very pleasant. Overall really good! The 11.2 is hidden really well and because of the balance of aromas to flavors I recommend it. Cheers!

Snagged some newly released 12 oz cans. Poured a hazy amber with white head. Nose is piney hops and citrus notes with a touch of brown sugar and bread notes. A potent Triple at 11% with flavors of bitter hops and bready esters, fruity notes and a mildly bitter finish. Decent carbonation. Not a bad canned brew, but am a bigger fan of canned Ska Modus Hoperandi.

Golden with small tan head. Herbal and dank aroma, alcohol is strong. A bit soapy and strange, nothing special, a bit thick and sweet. Not bad overall, but not amazing.

The beer is a hazy, orange-ish golden yellow hue (vague enough?) with a white, sticky head that leaves ringlets of lacing plastered about the walls of the pint glass. The aroma offers mangos, pineapples, sweet citrus. Smells sweet and hoppy. No surprise here. Sticky, sweet, and loaded with pineapple, mango, and melon flavors. Alcohol presence is certainly noticeable. This is pretty tasty, but probably best suited for slow sipping. Full bodied and creamy with warming alcohol. A solid beer. While not among my favorite DIPAs, I did find this one enjoyable and a nice departure from the norm.

Growler shared by john. The pour is a lightly hazed copper golden orange with a smallish white head that is pretty lasting for a pour from a growler. The aroma is big round citrus, grass and light honey floral. Big, expressive hop nose. The taste opens with lightly sweet malt and then turns quickly to the big expressive hop notes of the nose - orange citrus, hay grass, and floral dry notes. The alcohol is present in the warming finish, though doesn’t detract from the taste. The palate is medium bodied, soft active carbonation, and the dry warming finish. Nice one, thanks for bring the growler to KC and sharing, John.

On tap at Renegade. I mostly ordered this just to see how it stacks up to Alpine Exponential Hoppiness even though I knew it wouldn’t hold a candle. I must say that while Alpine has nothing to worry about this was surprisingly good. I thought I was tasting Columbus hops and was surprised to learn it was Summit which I normally find disgusting. This was extremely hoppy and thick so I was glad I only had a 3oz taster. Still, worthwhile and recommended for all hopheads. Serving type: on-tap

During GABF weekend. The last beer of a sampler and my favorite. Smooth and not alcoholic just strong bitterness and a crisp taste.
