3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from 22 oz. bottle.
Hazy, sparkling, bright coppery orange with a 4-finger cream-yellow head and very good lacing.
Aroma of citrus (especially orange), peach, mango, biscuit malt and pine.
Taste of bitter hop resin and citrus on a powerful malt (mainly caramel) backbone. Some tropical fruit and pine come through at the finish. Alcohol in there too, but the hop and malt flavors sink it far below the surface. The hops remind me of the hop resin that gets on your fingers when you handle hop flowers. This is an intensely bitter beer.
Medium/full body and medium carbonation.

UPDATED: SEP 5, 2015 Bottle. Aroma of big hops, citrus, floral notes and pine tree. Amber copper in color with off white head. Smells delicious! Flavors of hops and citrus with a slight carmel flavor; full body flavor with a bitter finish. Very good imperial IPA! Alcohol well hidden but very warming. Great pre-birthday beer!
@#$%^&* Stone for adding triple to the name making me think it’s a new beer I have to rate when my beer cellar is packed with many others I have to find time to get to.

Medium orange pour; dense white head. Aroma is surprisingly subtle on this, consdering the burst of hops that hit you on first sip. First sip is explosive with citrus and grass hops. Lots of caramel malt too. Flavors settle down into a nicely balanced, smooth beer. Doesn’t taste like a 10% beer.

A- pours a slightly cloudy, vibrant copper with 1 finger of quickly dissipating off-white head. Solid lacing.
S - strong Hops, pungent carmel malts and pine resin immediately. Some sun tea, general citrus and tropical fruits as well.
M- solid stickiness with good carbonation, medium bodied and full palate.
T - taste starts off with sweet malts and citrus - mangos and ripe apricots. Some biscuits, pine and muddled sugars in the middle moving on to a bitter, but efficient, grassy and grapefruit end.

My new favorite hop-massacre of a beer! Huge, Huge taste. Bold and bitter. This beer is a dream come true. Perfect head, great lacing. Crisp taste. I can't believe I like it more than Ruination, but I do!

More balance than I was expecting, which is definitely a good thing. Bitter and hop-loaded, as expected, but a real interesting malt/spice backbone that made it incredibly drinkable. Very good.
