3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Beer pours with a nice white head above a golden colored liquid that has a tinge of reddish when it is not being held up to the light. Aroma is too light for my taste but a funky dank smell is somewhat apparent. Taste is not very complex but is instead balanced with alcohol and some decent malts. I think if the alcohol contributed more flavor it might actually balance this beer out more. The hops seem a bit "Mono-hopmatic". Overall it is a decent beer but with regards to he other triple ipa’s I have had this one simply does not hold a candle.
650ml bottle from Total Wine in Paramus, NJ. Shared with PracticePlastic. Standard IPA pour without distinction. Aroma has citrus & pine, with some light roasty malts. Taste is of chewy resiny hops, citrus and pine. Dank with almost a yeasty presence. Very over dry-hopped, and strong. Dry. More than a medium body with some alcohol presence. Finishes fairly bitter over bittersweet. Old school NW hops thrown in by the bucketload. 14 Hop_Hedonist (628) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAY 20, 2017
Bottle - bloody lovely - a great high octane hop bomb - alcohol virtually invisible - far too easy to smash down (I’m thirsty). Andrus86 (686) - Busselton, WA, AUSTRALIA - MAR 29, 2017
BOTTLE. Pours a clean light gold with minimal frothy head.. Big piney resiny hop nose.. Thick body, has some caramel malt but dominated by big resinous hops, solid bitter finish.. Sourced cape cellars Dorwart (2607) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - JAN 7, 2017
Decent sized white head of fine bubbles with minimal carbonation. Light citrus hops aroma. Pineapple, dried grains, flowers. Color is a medium gold with very good clarity. Strong earthy hops slaps you in the face upon first sip. Light malt, dry cereal grains, parsley and dandelion greens and some lemon rind. Noticeable alcohol presence but I actually expected more due to the high abv. A bit hot and overly bitter but that can be expected for a triple IPA. Finishes lingering dry earthy/herbal hops. A pretty good big IPA. obguthr (6595) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - DEC 26, 2016
Orange and grapefruit nose, fairly strong. Clear amber, medium yellow head, nice lace.. Triple Sec, grapefruit. Medium body, easy carbonation, alcohol barely detectable. Quite bitter, but not that noticeable unless you’re thinking about it. Actually the bitterness overpowers the flavor, making it more bitter for bitter’s sake. All in all, a flavorful, enjoyable, and quick way to get wicked hammered.

split the bomber with a neighbor. pours amber, slight haze, off white head. lots of bitterness, pine, resin, grapefruit. medium body with a full blast of booze burn. jonno (2886) - JAPAN - DEC 8, 2016
Solid big hoppy beer, well rounded, but at 11.5% there is too much trade off in enjoyment to ABV. Would make a great 8 per center I believe. jinroh (2137) - ESTONIA - DEC 6, 2016
Darker golden, still very clear. Not much foam but still a decent amount of it. Aroma is really faint, surprisingly so, but is getting more rich when the beer warms. Just a bit of resins odor, sweet berry and banana. Taste does not let me down. Full on hop bitterness, but the balance is good. This beer is highly drinkable and does not feel heavy at all. Maybe dense but we’ll that’s normal for such a strong triple IPA. Superb.

Tap at Fujiyama. Malty, fruity nose, crazy peaches and citrus, biscuits. Oranges, nice sweetness, great fruit flavors all the way and not too sweet. Dangerous. TimE (6076) - Tokyo, JAPAN - NOV 26, 2016
Light amber golden color. Brandy oranges tangerines with some cracker malt. Big hop assault light body, for 11.3% it drinks so easily. A bit yeasty. But superbly put together. Not overly bitter. Excellent. So fucking good
