, from Wine Spot, Cleveland, USA. Medium/strong slightly pungent aroma of bit sweet pine, alcohol and a hint of tropical fruits. Copper color with small white head and slightly hazy liquid. Strong taste of mango, pine, citrus and alcohol. Special hops come out nicely in balanced taste. Medium taste spectrum and long citrus and hoppy aftertaste. Medium palate with medium carbonation. Overall, well performing special DIPA with bit too much alcohol in aroma and in taste.
murky gold with a large white head. nose is a big floral IPA with a touch of earthiness and cherries. Flavor is a big burst of hops with a sweet big malt quickly balancing it out. backside is bitter and sticky. good stuff TattooJack (515) - Illinois, USA - NOV 25, 2015
Poured from a couple of four packs I had tried this beer at howell and hood like a year ago but I had drunk so much i didn’t remember it so I’ve been seeking it out lately and i happened upon a couple of 4 packs at Binny’s evergreen. Sticky, creamy, hoppy (not to mention smitty), piney, strong, and some new dwarves tropical and juicy. This was worth the wait and all the places I went to that said they had this and didn’t. maddmatt639 (331) - Pacifica, California, USA - NOV 18, 2015
No retention and light lacing. Smells of pine, flowers and citrus. Tastes of pine, citrus fruits and hop resin. Semi-bitter aftertaste.

Pours a cloudy, deep golden orange color with dark golden yellow edges and a one finger, frothy white head that very slowly settles into a lasting ring. Very good retention with streaks of lacing left behind.
Very dank and floral hop aroma with some grassy, earthy pine and a nice tropical/citrus fruit presence countered by a sweet malt backbone. Resinous oils along with hints of kind bud, fresh cut grass and pine needle followed by grapefruit, mango and orange peel. Some sweet caramel malt along with toffee, biscuit and graham cracker. Malts are subtle however and don’t at all interfere with the hop character.
Medium body with a blast of dry hop bitterness that lingers over tropical/citrus fruit and caramel malt sweetness into a bone dry finish. Complex hop profile with dry, earthy bitterness and resinous oil/pine needle flavor followed by juicy tropical and citrus fruit sweetness. Strong grapefruit, pineapple, mango and orange zest character balancing things out with much needed sweetness. Sweet caramel malt backbone with honts of toffee, biscuit, hazelnut and slight dark fruit notes. Some alcohol heat in the finish but overall the high ABV is decently masked. In these high ABV triple IPAs the alcohol/ethanol flavored often kills off the hops but it’s nicely integrated into the finish of this beer. Complex, flavorful and decently drinkable for it’s strength. A touch too malty for my liking but still a very solid beer.

Copper, mid amber colour. Weedy aroma, floral but oddly bubblegummy sweet. Sticky, resinous palate, perfect carbonation for strong IPA to cut through hop bitterness. Some caramel notes from malt and slightly heavier body than average strong IPA. Great. gkeh (482) - Texas, USA - NOV 1, 2015
Dark copper/gold pour. Aroma is beautiful pine, an array of citrus, mango. Heavily dry hopped. Medium to full bodied, mild carbonation. Bitter bight, resin, sticky. The type of in your face IPA that I love. Darn near perfect. sir__v (2629) - FRANCE - OCT 31, 2015

Hop bomb! Citrus pine fruit bouquet of aroma. Served in a goblet, feel like I’m drinking a tropical drink. Huge punch of bitterness at first sip. Full bodied with a fruity aftertaste BelgianBeerGal (4066) - Panama City, Florida, USA - OCT 26, 2015
Draft at Fishale. Murky gold pour with a head that lasts forever. Aroma of sweet, sticky hops. Good bitterness with a sweet kick and a little booze. Finished with grapefruit juice bitterness. Fine.
