Had to try a triple IPA to say I’ve done it. A good-tasting beer, but a style with way too much alcohol to throw a few back. Intensely rich hops & malt, almost slightly sweet, I do not sense the citrus though. Good taste nonetheless.

Pours clear amber color. One finger medium lasting head. Aroma is of complex hops and grapefruit. Taste is sweet from the fruit but smooth malt flavor mostly. Not very hoppy on the taste. Smooth on the palate. Good beer just wishing for more hop taste

Bottle pours copper with creamy tan head. Aroma of flowers and citrus. Flavors of pine, cedar, and sweet ruby red grapefruit with a sweet, smooth hop finish. Very complex flavorings throughout the session. Unique IPA.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Longneck, Ok label. Almost clear, light gold, with a thin and dense white head. Big hoppy aroma, some sulfur. Sweet, a little musky, candied with pineapple, lemon, grapefruit esters. Very warming. Citrus peel on the lips. Heavy and oily. Big beer, but I didn’t love it. Thanks to LuckyDog.

On tap at HOTB. Pours a clear golden color with a white head. Aroma of peach and mango. Taste is a bit strange though. Something harsh there. Medium body and high carb.
