COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is our triple IPA. Perhaps our most lofty hoppy achievement?

blipp (5830) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - APR 12, 2013
Growler. Pours gold with a thin white head. Spicy and piney hops, with medium sweet malts, a hint of booze, and a medium bitter finish. A little bit too big, but still good.

growler from tom10101, many thanks! clear golden with a quickly diminishing off-white head. very juicy and sweet citrusy, piney and strawberry hops, cloying but interesting fruitiness. average carbonation, very viscous and sticky, medium hopping - still not enough, for a medium long citrusy-grassy-piney finish. decadent. ok.

IrishBoy (3803) - Bakersfield, California, USA - MAR 24, 2013
1 L growler from TheEpeeist. The aroma of hops leaped out as I lifter the lever and rubber seal. It smelled like an indoor English greenhouse with ivy climbing up the framework, and tropical mango, pineapple, and lemons growing in a steamy glass house accentuating the aroma. Clear yellow orange with a medium, lightly lacing, faint yellow head. Flavor is mildly bitter with a bunch of tropical fruity sweetness and a moderate peppery spiciness. I love the feeling it brings to my nose and tongue as I slowly sip it down.

Minderbinder (1671) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 24, 2013
Growler 1L. Pours golden with low white head. Aroma is of citrus, malt, caramel, exotic fruits (mango, pineapple), pine. Taste is of citrus, sweetness, mango. Heavy on sugar. Palate: Medium-full body. Loads of sugar. Overall: Very interesting fruit features, but that sugar is just too crazy. Still a good beer imo.

mathieuc (1143) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 24, 2013
Big, big, big beer. Everything is cranked up but the sweetness is cranked more! It feels underattenuated with its almost cloying sweetness. No signs of any alcohol which is an accomplishment but ultimately it was the less interesting TH beer of the afternoon.

tom10101 (2614) - Quebec, CANADA - MAR 24, 2013
Growler (1 L) 10 days old. Thanks to phillycraft for this one! Clear orange with a medium fluffy white head and good lacing. Aroma is of citrus, resinous, malt/caramel, tropical fruits. Taste is moderately to heavy sweet with malt/caramel, citrus, resinous and a moderately bitter finish. Heavy body for the style, almost viscous. alcohol is well hidden. Pretty decent aroma (interesting hops work here), but way too heavy to be drinkable and/or refreshing. Still very nice.

Hoppypocket (408) - Trois-rivieres, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 23, 2013
UPDATED: MAR 25, 2013 Growler shared by tom10101. thanks a lot! Pours a hazy light orange with small white head. Good lacing. Aroma is very piney, a bit citrusy. Taste is very sweet, very malty, with lots of piney hops. A bit of citrus. The sweetness is very present, too much. Mouthfeel is medium-heavy. Not bad, but too sweet and too malty for me.

patrickfannon (1235) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 23, 2013
On tap at Tired Hands with Janine, Linh, and Sweet Baby James. Pours vibrant pinkish-orange with a velvety-smooth white head. Aroma of bubble gum, grapefruit, tangerine, strawberries, and a touch of pine resin. Very pungent. Tastes very clean and feels incredibly soft on the tongue, with some strawberry and bittersweet orange notes up front fading into some subtle bubblegum and marmalade flavors in the sweet finish. The body on this is extraordinary and but for the residual sweetness in the finish, this is a lethally deceptive beer. Outrageously easy-drinking for a triple IPA. Not better than Younger, however.

birdmachine (165) - San Jose / San Luis Obispo, California, USA - MAR 20, 2013
Growler purged with CO2 and shipped over in 6 days. Swing top excitedly popped off with lots of gases escaping through the top. Poured a crystal clear orange with a huge fluffy pillow like head that lasted a while. Awesome lacing and big legs. Initial aromas of pine and light citrus, also a little catty. Definitely lacking the west coast style, or Double Sunshine type of tropical blast. Taste is big sweetness, with a thick mango-aprociot nector/syrupy mouth feel. Medium carbonation and medium alcohol warmth. Aftertaste are of vanilla, grass, pine, and some weird pungent bitterness. Not a terrible finish, but not the best. I think this beer lost a lot from the growler, which makes sense. Overall an awesome IPA, but the sweetness kind of tones this down from an IPA to more of a pale. Then again probably not properly represented. I need to get my ass to Tired Hands
