Strykzone (7848) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JUN 7, 2015
Bomber from Hayduke that we had together via facebook chat. Some haze in this honey golden beer. A three finger off white head leaves nice lacing. The aroma is full of tropical and citrus fruit but is also distinct. First sip screams monster ABV. Huge fruit flavors and pale malts that almost match up. Very little bitterness. Midway through the hops gains some freshness as in dry hopping. On each sip I suck in fruit on the intake of breath and then taste even more. And that fruit is pretty darned tasty. The finish is really hot. So much alcohol and it ended like a high gravity bomb, but a really fruity one. Wow. What an experience. beertholomeus (1814) - California, USA - APR 3, 2015

On tap at PreFunk Boise clear light Orange Amber with just a scant off white head. Decent tropical fruity hop flavors, clean and strong. Finishes well. The 11% is a bit surprising. b515001 (3) - - MAR 20, 2015 does not count
super amazing delicious beer. Highly recommended. I am not usually a fan of triple ipas. This one is far superior to most Banksiz (157) - Sacramento, California, USA - FEB 8, 2015
UPDATED: FEB 6, 2016 Malty-resinous nose with some butterscotch and alcohol hotness. Bitter with a backbone of malty sweetness. Full creamy-oily body and a bitter finish. Lacks noble hop flavor and the complexity I’d want to see in a beer of this strength.To be fair, this was bottled 9.7.14 and I’m drinking it 2.7.15, so some of the best hop flavor might have faded. Nevertheless, an enjoyable imperial IPA. P.S., another bottle drunk a bit younger also lacked a true noble hop flavor, I guess that’s the way it is with this one ....
