Bottle to ipa glass. Dark subdued burnt orange pour with a thick white head that laces a bit. Nose is very citrus and sweet malt. The booze is apparent. Taste is malty sweetness up front with a bitter booze grapefruit and orange hop finish. perezs25 (45) - - MAR 14, 2014
Holly S&@$! In-your-face XXX IPA! The Tequila shot of IPAs. Very strong pine, some citrous first sniff, more moderate later. Poured with moderate head, expected more with such high hops. Amber color, low haze. Taste is hops all the way, I think I taste some sweetness of caramel, but all I can think of is swimming in a big pile of hops! Very tangible body, very warm after taste. Gulps made my eyes tear and mouth pucker! A beer for sipping, maybe the ceiling for hop heads like me.

On tap. Pours golden deep yellow. Hint of head and good lacing. Nose is off the hook, hop, pine, citrus. Crisp clean massive hope attack, clean, fresh, on point. CanIHave4Beers (4243) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - MAR 11, 2014
Pours a golden color with a small head and some lacing on the glass. rick_91709 (526) - USA - MAR 9, 2014
The aroma is buttery with a bunch of hop pellet character. It’s got some fruity hoppiness, some grassiness, and plenty of booziness.
The flavor is booze and butter with some but citrusy hop character. Yum a dum-dum.
I can hardly believe I was drinking the same beer as the other raters on this one, I did not enjoy this very much at all.
Poured from a bottle. Deep gold. Frothy, white head. Very clear. Big citrus aroma. A little bitter to start followed by some pineapple(?). Alcohol is not very apparent in the taste.

@Basunen: en fantastisk stor doft ca ananas. Smaken är mycket trevlig och fruktig. Fin humle om inte kanske något rå. Mycket god.

bottle shared by someone at Blue Monk’s NEB hopattack. golden orange, fuller body, great piney, grapefruity bitterness, touch of sweet malts to ounter, very nice zsb19 (480) - Cincinnati, Kentucky, USA - MAR 5, 2014
Good night.....this is delicious! Aroma is floral and grassy with sweet buttery notes. Taste is floral and buttery maltiness upfront with some dank, piney citrus hitting you mid-palate. The aftertaste is lingering piney spruce hops with some grapefruit bitterness and a touch of sweet malt to balance it out. There is a touch of alcohol warming as it lingers in the follow through. The palate is silky smooth. Overall this beer is ridiculously good.....not sure why it is not in the top of most people’s lists. I have not rated in a while, but this was so good that I had to give it props. The bottle says 11.25% alcohol and 131 IBU......I am definitely feeling that alcohol in the last few sips, but the 131 IBU’s are very well hidden by the buttery malty sweetness to balance it out. I have had many "triple" IPA’s, but this is the best by far! BMMillsy (1788) - Florida, USA - MAR 1, 2014
Grabbed a bomber first thing when I arrived in Yountville at the little market here. Wine schmine, amirite? Poured in a wine glass to fit in. Bottled 2/19/14, had 3/1/14. freshy fresh. Anyway, pours a beautiful clear golden color with a creamy white half finger head on top. Bursting aroma of pine, citrus, floral notes, honey and malt sweetness. Flavor is hop candy, grapefruits and pineapple galore, some pine, sweet malts backing this one. Surprisingly smooth for 130+ IBU, and just delicious. Big slick resinous mouthfeel with medium carbonation. While pretty drinkable this one is on the hefty side as expected. Lots going on in this one and glad I finally got to try it.
