ddemmingjr (798) - Chagrin Falls, Ohio, USA - NOV 5, 2012
Bottle from Chuck's: new brewery to NE OH. Pours clear amber, wispy off white head that fades to a thin haze and dense ring. Pine resin, mango, herbal spice notes with some crystal and caramel malt presence on the nose. As this warms, resinous hop bitterness, some grassy and herbal nuances with this hop profile. caramel and crystal malt sugars in the middle of the flavor profile, followed by a not over the top spicy bitter hop bitterness. For a triple IPA, this grew on me as the palate holds up and mellows and increases drink ability for such a big ABV beer. It's no Pliny or Dreadnaught, but damn good ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Massive hop assault from all directions. Imagine being pelleted with citra hops and force fed. It would be a combination of pleasure and pain, yet so deceivingly light experience. For 11.3% its a friggin masterpiece. Amazing beer.

22oz bottle brought to the house by a guest. Poured champagne gold, crystal clear, with a bright white bubbly head. I was amazed at how clear this beer was. Sharp hop aroma, featuring pine and grapefruit. Lots of hops in the flavor, but they tend to be more floral. More muted. Medium bodied with a quick bitter finish. Very nice.

On tap at The Gingerman, Manhattan, New York, USA. A golden coloured pour with a medium white head on top. Hoppy, citrus, rich tropical fruit on the nose. Tastes similar, hoppy, citrus, tropical fruit, caramel. Quite a beast of an Imperial IPA, very good.

Bomber shared at Oct Brewpub, merci Lindon. - Shared slightly past its BB, the risks of lone hoarding for symposia... - Manages to spread TRIPA piney hop dankness thin so as not to thicken into that crystal malt quince marmelade... Elegant, near pillowy-light malt profile suffused with zitrus zest and apricot peel sweetness - overall a very elegant TRIPA.

Very nice, very powerful IPA. Super deep, very alcoholic. Citrus, orange, lemon, and deep breadiness.

darbeer75 (626) - Round Rock, Texas, USA - OCT 25, 2016
Aroma: agree with description of danky hops; Appearance: clear golden pour with thin white head that lingers; Taste: follows nose with boozy intensity; would be hard to make it through an entire bottle; Palate: medium-heavy body with long, dank finish; Overall: intense but good. Would get again in limited quantities.
