22 oz. bomber dated 6/4/13. Pours deep amber with a thick, off-white, two-finger head that dissipates to a nice foam cap. Great lacing. Pure hop aroma - pine resin and grapefruit rind. Bitter up front, as one would expect from a beef billed as a triple IPA. Nicely balance, however, not bitter for bitters sake like too many west-coast Imperial IPAs. Bitter on the back end as well, finishes slightly dry with a little heat from the 11.5 ABV. A full bodied, slick mouthfeel with moderate carbonation. Overall, a well crafted triple IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tap at Imazato. A clear orange-gold with a nice low white head and some lacing. Very dank pine and citrus with some tropical fruit in there. A feast of hop flavours, citrus, pine, tropical. Its balanced well for such a big IPA, the malt carries it through, working with assertive bitterness. Its surprisingly smooth and not heavy. Very enjoyable.

Big ass hop machine, but great lean body. A tad on the sweet side, but to be expected at this ABV. Lots of weed, fruit and some pine. Well executed.

Golden, clear and not very foamy. Aroma has loads of dank hops, resins are strong. Taste is also revealing intense and dank beer flavours, not as fruity maybe as some others I just had room Knee Deep but still fresh and fruity. Taste is herbal-fruity. Resins maybe the strongest, grapefruit seeds on steroids. Long and resiny bitter linger in the finish. Again. I have no idea how they do this but it really works.

An outstanding triple IPA. Just enough resin to balance the alcohol. A great beer to sip after a fine meal. Surprisingly little lacing. Quite impressive.

TimE (5250) - Tokyo, JAPAN - NOV 26, 2016
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.

mcox90 (1960) - Wilton, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 13, 2016
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.

evergreen0199 (3101) - Northwood, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 10, 2016
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.

bartlebier (3562) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - OCT 31, 2016
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.

Shared 12 oz. bottle. Clear golden with a white head. Aroma of tropical fruit. Taste is tropical fruit, citrus, grapefruit, pine. Warming finish. Strong stuff, but good.
