zoucrew102 (1677) - - MAR 26, 2017
Bomber. Caramel malt aroma with notes of grapefruit, pine and a little bit of tropical fruit hops. Pours clear amber colored with a large off white head that has excellent retention and lacing. Starts with sweet caramel malt and some tropical fruit hop flavors. Finishes dry with grapefruit and piney hop bitterness but ends quite smooth considering the style and has just a bit of booze at the very end. Pretty good stuff.

Pours hazy copper with off white head. Aroma is orange, sweet malt with touch of honey. Taste is piney with a grapefruit and sweet malt. Nice bit hit of alcohol on the finish that warms the palate.

Draught at Loyal Legion. Pale yellow in color with bitterness and a lot of hops. Really good.

Beerdrinker79 (2156) - Idaho, USA - MAR 11, 2017
32 oz crowler- Pours a very lively mostly clear golden with a large white head with nice retention. The aroma is spicy, pine resin, sweet malt. The taste is sweet malt, light yet a touch of caramel, pine sap, resin that doesnt quite reach dank status, not much if any citrusy qualities here. Body is medium to full and carbonation is spot on if not a touch high. Well rounded beer, that does not taste like 12%.

Beaver (1746) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAR 8, 2017
22 oz bottle. Pours clear copper gold with a big creamy white head that retains well and laces the glass.

The aroma is subdued - bready malt and ripe fruit with some piney hops and alcohol.

The flavor is sweet candy sugar and bready caramel malts with some fruit and some piney resiny hops. Theres big harsh fusel alcohol that really detracts. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with low carbonation.

Overall, this probably would have been better at a lower ABV with less residual sugar and fusel alcohol.

luttonm (5551) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 19, 2017
GG, Seattle. Soft ring foam, bright golden orange. Intense resin citrus, robust nose. Big, sweet, fruity triple. Thick, warming body. Nicely balanced and clean for a big IPA, if not having the most interseting flavors. Intense, heavy and rather sweet. Kind of a prototypical, slightly old school triple IPA. Not bad.

blueshockey24 (561) - Colorado, USA - OCT 30, 2016
Bomber. Pours Orangish golden hazy with offwhite head. Aroma is sweet malty with hints of honey. Taste is sweet malty honey piney with a grapefruit piney warm hop finish. Its god and more on the malty than hoppy side to me personally. Alcohol is hidden well. Overall good but my preference is hops over malt and this is pretty balanced with a little more on the malt end.

Panzuriel (2098) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - OCT 28, 2016
Appearance: Rich dark amber honey. Medium to very hazy. Finger of white bubbles Nose: Pine resin, touch of funk and a hint of sweetness Taste: Strong pine and citrus hops with elements of musty dank. Bits of clover honey sweetness balancing the bitterness. Body: medium to fuller. Parting thoughts: Not sure what I was expecting, but not what I got. This beer was good, but I was expecting everything to be bigger. Almost understated.

SpringsLicker (3560) - Tennessee, USA - MAY 16, 2016
Clear gasoline gold with a medium-sized off-white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma of pine resin and honey. The flavor is sweet with a brief appearance of hop bitterness before it fades into a sweet finish. Approaching cloying. The first sip had a bit of alcohol and an accompanying warming. Too sweet for my tastes as an IIPA and not quite a good complex BW.
