Was given this the day after first bottling. Pretty great 3xIPA. Really rich, dank hops in this. 11.5% ABV is hidden really well and the malt bill is subtle but present. Really great beer. I’d love to try this side by side with the Simtra and even Pliny the Younger. I don’t think it’s far off from that territory. brokensail (16695) - Dublin, California, USA - AUG 31, 2012
Pours a light amber with a white head. Fairly sweet in the nose, a bit of caramel, some toffee, moderate pine, and some citrus. Citrus is mostly tangerine with a light grapefruit. Kind of harsh on the palate. Pine, mild grapefruit, and some floral notes. Somewhat abrasive on the bitterness. Not as sweet on the palate as I expected, but some toffee and caramel notes. Just kind of meh. Dodgrblu (758) - Sacramento, California, USA - AUG 24, 2012
Taster in the Alleyway on Growler fill night. Minimal head, crisp taste, nice bitterness.
