Natai (124) - Sacramento, California, USA - FEB 3, 2013
Pours a copper gold with a slight white head that dissipates quickly. Little to no lacing. Strong grapefruit aroma hop front followed by grassy and herbal hops. Lots of resin in the flavor with very little hop character, kind of syrupy texture at the end. Disappointing.

Bottle - bloody lovely - a great high octane hop bomb - alcohol virtually invisible - far too easy to smash down (Im thirsty).

Andrus86 (635) - 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 (2581) - 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 (6233) - 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 youre thinking about it. Actually the bitterness overpowers the flavor, making it more bitter for bitters sake. All in all, a flavorful, enjoyable, and quick way to get wicked hammered.

jonno (2732) - 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 (1505) - 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 well thats normal for such a strong triple IPA. Superb.

KyotoLefty (10086) - Kyoto, JAPAN - NOV 29, 2016
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 (5711) - 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

Thisis12ptfont (1167) - Los Angeles, CA, California, USA - NOV 12, 2016
Aromas of fresh pineapple, mango, lemon, lemon peel, grapefruit, honey, tropical fruits, butterscotch, crystallized sugars, crisp caramel and dry malt extract. Pours a golden copper with a thin tan foam and hop oils rising atop. Taste immediately brings a distinctively assertive hop profile. Remarkably fresh hop notes offering fresh pineapple, lemon, juicy grapefruit, mango, apricot and tropical fruits. More subtle notes of honey, sweet caramel, crystallized sugars, vanilla and candied caramel. Finishes with residual hop oils, subtle resin, candied fruits and more pineapple. Overall, I feel this is a massive achievement in the Triple IPA category. Theres plenty of hoppiness to it yet, there is a distinct, crisp sugar lining to the hops and fruits they offer, A+ rating.
