jbruner (2806) - Athens, Georgia, USA - MAY 1, 2013
Pours a hazy golden orange from the can with thin lacy white head that sticks lightly. Aroma is sweet citrus up front, odd boozy caramel malt middle, then it falls off instantly. Taste is sweet, citrusy, booze is more hidden but again falls off quick. No real finish except a late burn in your stomach. Too much but at the same time not enough going on, not too great.

12 oz can. Pours hazy golden. Aroma of tropical fruits, citrus, and caramel. Flavor of tropical fruit, citrus, pine, caramel. Good. Strong and delicious.

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.

   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 16/20
Indra (2686) - 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!

bu11zeye (12096) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - MAR 18, 2015
(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.

alandis01 (8) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 7, 2015 does not count
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.

deth5517 (5) - Colorado, USA - DEC 19, 2014 does not count
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 IBU’s (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 you’re 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 great for anyone into heavy IPAs. It’s over 11% so be careful when drinking lol

M82 (362) - Kansas, USA - DEC 11, 2014
A heavily hazed, bright dried apricot body supports a 1.5" frothy-smooth bone white head which creates a dense wall of lace as it settles

Flavors and aromas packed with peaches and grapefruit trimmed in pine needle and alcohol with a big rounding savory hop component on a smooth, mildly carbonated medium body finishing fairly clean with very light tact, and a slightly spicy note of warmth, residuals echoing the aroma and flavor with a stronger dank influence, very drinkable for the style

12oz can (no canned code) week of KC release served at 45° into Orrefors Pulse beer glass

Bov (10117) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - NOV 21, 2014
courtesy of Laurent Mousson; canned - fully cloudy copper-orange beer with a long lasting foam; solid hoppy aroma, resiney, rapes and litchies; full-bodied, pretty subtle carbonation, lively and tasty; hugely bitter, some apparent alcohol in a long hoppy aftertaste with more resiney notes and ripe fruits (litchies and melon)

phildorsey (161) - Fort Carson, Colorado, USA - OCT 8, 2014
12oz. can. Pours hazy and cloudy with minimum froth. Aroma is of lemon and citrus bitter flavors. Palate is heavy on the bitterness side but refreshing, while the taste is offensively delicious...extremely high IBUs, hoppy and explodes with citrus flavors. Overall: Expensive beer, but the craft beer love will appreciate the master Brewers concoction. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
