The florally hops greet you with minimal alcohol for such a high ABV beer. It’s a dark redish brown pour with a thick white head. Medium body beer with a slightly creamy feel and sweet and hoppy finish… again surprisingly minimal alcohol in the taste. Overall, this has to be the best Triple IPA I have had to date and my only regret is it’s not available as far as I know in Illinois.

Bottle. Floral pine aroma. Copper body with medium lasting, thick foamy head. Flavor begins with sweet grapefruit, followed by hops, cascade and amarillo are dominant. Subtle maltiness at the end followed by a sour grapefruit finish. bitter aftertaste.

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.

Bottle to pint glass. Picked up a 4 pack of this on a whim during a trip to Pennsylvania and I am now a fan. Pours a very clear copper with a finger size white head. Aroma is hops/citrus but not incredibly overpowering. Fantastically balanced taste - hops to start but it finishes with malt notes - almost sweet. Reminds me of hopslam somewhat. Mouthfeel is smooth as silk. I would drink a lot more of this if I had brought home more with me.

UPDATED: SEP 28, 2012 12 oz Bottle. Light copper in color, mostly clear. Fairly strong hop aroma. Explosively strong flavor in both hops and alcohol. Really good. Certainly not one to drink a whole 6 pack of!

Aroma of papaya, pine and alcohol. Pours amber with a small frothy head. Tastes like pine, cherries and alcohol. The flavors are well balanced and this is truly.delicious.

On tap at Pinocchio’s. The description said melon, which excited me. Melon in the nose and melon up front in the flavor. Awesome. Alcohol is hot, but wonderfully so. Moderate to high hops, citrus dominating. Pretty awesome.

I tried this once when I was in PA. I never forgot the hop explosion that summer day. I ordered a case and now I'm recreating 4th of July in my mouth over & over & over.

Poured from 3 bottles of a mixed six, smells delightful. Taste is sticky resin, lots of hops, spicy, dry ending, not boozy for being 11.5%. I would be a regular consumer of this beer if it were available anywhere close to me. If anyone wants to trade for something in Chicago message me.

I really loved this impy IPA from BBW. They seemed to really focus on the bitter and spicy notes of the hops they used. But they also had a nice concentration of malts to balance it all out. I got a lot of piney hops in the nose, along with some breadiness and earthy tone. The flavors were incredibly delicious and smooth. Besides the spicy and floral hops, I tasted some bread, earth, pine and bitter grapefruit. The finish was quite bitter and dry as well. This was one delicious IPA!
