This is now a Triple IPA purchased in a 22 ounce bottle. The UPC matches this selection. Golden color with a strong hop aroma. Excellent blend of hops and malt. Bitter finish.

Incredible beer, with an amazing number of uniquely combined taste layers. I was fortunate to snag 3 large bombers (25.6 oz) from the brewery for a very reasonable $10/bomber.
Nowadays I tend to drink beer more for the taste than the buzz, but after a single mid-day 10-oz glass I was feeling the effects of this monster! Calling it a Triple IPA is not an overstatement by any means.

For an ABV of 11% & IBU of 111, the aroma and taste of this triple IPA is solid. Also throw in that it's $10 for a bomber and this is a steal!

On tap at the brewery. Pours a clear yellow with gold hue and a white head that dissipates to the edges slowly and laces. Aroma has sweet and bitter citrus with a touch of pine and a sweet grain backbone. Flavor has resin and bitter citrus with some sweet grains and a touch of caramel.

Thanks to kbutler1 for tossing this in our trade as an extra.
The beer is dark amber with approx. one inch of head. The aroma is of tropical fruits, caramel malts, candied citrus, hints of pine, alcohol. A big, robust beer. hop forward with a sturdy malt presence. Alcohol is there, but not obtrusive. Slightly sweet throughout with mild bitterness. Pretty good.

Light bronze pour with small white head. Aroma and flavor is big on pine and resin. Light carbonation. Very tasty, easy to drink for 11%. I’d put this up there with some of the west coast big IPA’s I’ve had

UPDATED: MAR 6, 2014 3-6-14 re-rate: 750ml bottle. Felt the need to re-rate this so soon as I have come to the conclusion that this beer is far better than I originally gave it credit for and far better than my fellow Ratebeerians would seem to suggest. I like this better than Hopslam and better than Abrasive, recognizing that this is technically a subtly different style. Liquid gold and perhaps my new favorite beer on the planet. 1-17-14:Draft at brewery. Fresh, sweet, fruity hop aroma that reminds me a bit of Hopslam. Slightly hazy amber although tough to tell in the dim light of the bar. Excellent off white head and lace. Really excellent brew that is not dissimilar to Hopslam. Call it a poor man’s Hopslam although that is said in the most complimentary way. Steel Toe’s best beer, also said in the most complimentary way. 10, 4,9,5,18
