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

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

Crystal clear golden-orange, medium white head, soapy lacing. Apricot, grapefruit and a fair bit of booze show in the flavor and nose. Medium bodied, moderate Carb, aggressive bitterness, a bit of heat and surprisingly, not cloying. A big bad beast.

Thanks to Erik for this growler! Fascinating brew. Mango nectar looking pour. Nose and flavor bring huge apricot and peach, orange rind and lemon, but so low on bitterness given the perceived aggressiveness of alcohol. Sweet but not cloying. Delicious.

Draft at tire hands with Linh. Pours a golden body with light haze and creamy white lacing. Aroma is faint funk, light dank herb and bright citrus. Mouthfeel is fluffy with notes of mango drizzled with sweet wildflower honey, funky hop and light dank citrus. another knockout from TH. The sweetness really helps mask the alcohol here as well. Overall very incredible.

Growler thanks to craftycarl21! Pours a low haze light orange. Thick buttermilk foam. Thick swathes of lace. Insane hop bomb nose with rich caramel, jackfruit, durian, mango, overripe mangosteen, major dried apricot. A little over the top moving to overripe yellow fruits. Taste is thick and rich but not sticky or syrupy. Moves to some intense sweet n low and southern sweet tea. Huh. I have mixed feelings about this.

On tap at Tired Hands. Clear orange with a white head. Nose is orange, grass and caramel; slightly catty. Medium body, just syrupy, with a tingle and lingering resin. Taste is orange, honey-mead and pine. Very sweet to start but mellows with a grassy bitterness. Alcohol well hidden. Can a triple IPA show restraint? Yum.

Sample from Brian at TH. Pours glowing yellow golden with medium sized head and pretty good lacing retention. Notes are super hoppy, light cheese, skunk, tangerine, pine, and apricot. The last portion of the taste got sweet and sugary, but thats pretty hard to avoid with triple ipas. Slightly warming in the chest. Not a big fan of the style, but this was probably better then this years pliny the younger.

8oz pour at the pub. Pours a bright yellow. Sticky white head and lacing. Sweet tropical fruit aroma. Mouthfeel is heavy as to be expected from this behemoth. Taste is very much pineapple, mango and citrus. Not much pine at all. It's very sweet though. I'd have liked it dryer. Very much a heavily hopped barleywine style beer. Worth a shot though especially if you like hefty beers. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft at TH. 8 oz pour... Funky light yellow color with a glowing orange tint. Small white head that stuck around. Strong lacing left on the glass. Nose is hoppy, duh. Bitter pine needles, some floral notes. Taste is a bitter smack in the face followed by an intense sweetness. Lots of pine, grass, floral notes, some fruityness. The sweetness is too much. For a high alcohol content beer, its barely noticable. Body is medium, not really sticky as I would have expected. 8 oz pour is all I wanted. Overall: Too sweet

8 oz. pour in tulip. Aroma is fruity, floral, wonderful. Very pale in golden color. Seems fairly clarified without a lot of particulate. Thin white head and amazing lacing leaving a ring with every sip. Taste is fruity, a bit sweet up front and nicely bitter at the back end. A bit sticky on the palate but very nice. Overall this is a fantastic beer that is above most other triple IPAs. Nice work. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
