Simcoe and Citra: my two favorite hops! Pours a very hazy ruby orange color with a half finger off white head. Smells of sweet, juicy grapefruit, lots of papaya, mango, pine, fruit punch, almost like a perfume floral smell. Little bit of breadiness in the back but over taken by the hop qualities. Taste starts with the mellower fruits like papaya, mango, pineapple from the citra. Then in the middle you get a carmel flavor, as well as a biscuity note. Also some of the more astringency notes start to creep in like grapefruit and pine from the simcoe. Then the finish is more of the carmel malt, pine, lemon, grapefruit, peach, papaya, mango. Just a symphony of flavors. The finish lasts and a bitter grapefruit and lemon flavor is the last to go. Just enough malt to just cut some of the bitterness from the massive amounts of hops. Definitely do get booze on the finish as well, but that is expected at almost 12%. Gets much better as it warms and the fruity flavors of the hops definitely do come out when it does. Pretty full mouthfeel with moderate carbonation and a creamy, yet oily mouthfeel from the hops. Would love to get my hands on more of this!

oobawa (1003) - Tennessee, USA - MAR 20, 2017
Beautiful bitter bomb, hoppy as hoppy can be with a gigantic malt base to offset the brutal finish. Pour is gorgeous, a glorious orange-gold underneath an enormous head and age rings that linger after each sip. Nose explodes with citrus and cat pee, backed by an orange-tinted sweetness and the slightest hint of booze. But, dear lord, what a hop bomb, the pine-grapefruit-orange-floral pungency of the Citras and Simcoes melding with caramel-toast malts to create a flood of majestic IPA excess. Starts mildly sweet, grows increasingly bitter, and finishes uber-resinous, a lingering finish for the ages. Alcohol is completely hidden, and the feel is silky smooth. Great beer.

Damn, this is an absolutely massive aroma and taste bomb of a triple ipa. Holy shit. As soon as I popped the top I got hit with resinous dank aroma. In the glass I got the juiciest, freshest mango, papaya, pineapple and peach. Theres a bunch of resinous pine and a huge green dank aroma. Taste follows the aroma perfectly. Super tropical and juicy, dank and piney. Slight burn but nothing offensive. This is a big one, but its actually super drinkable. Highly recommended.

Cloudy gold pour, no real head. Nose is citrus, alcohol, and pine. Bitter, very bitter. Middle is creamy orange marmalde, floral notes, and some woody rose. Finish is bracingly bitter and looong. ABV does not taste as high as it registers on the label, be careful.
