3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma of citrus, herbal, grass and cat piss. The bigger these things get the closer they get to cat piss on cut grass this is no exception. It’s kind of a turn off. Appearance is nice,amber clear with a large head, nice lacing. Taste is a decent amount of malt for the style but then in comes the hops and the lasting taste is more cat piss. Palate is a bit thick. Overall it’s a big IIPA with big hops but somehow these big IIPAs are starting to feel like complete overkill, like they’ve gotten so big that what made them good is starting to collapse on itself.
OnTap hazy deep copper color with a thin fine lasting light beige head. Deep floral citrus hop flavors. Lots of orange and tangerine. Big caramel malt body and a long lingering bitterness. Smooth heavy and good fruity hopness. colui72 (1022) - HONG KONG - JUL 17, 2017
Pours deep golden/amber, with a medium white head and not much lacing. Fantastic aroma of orange peel, vanilla and mango. Tastes quite bitter but very rich and complex, with caramel, ale malts, orange peel, mango, mandarin and strong vanilla. Tasty and easy to drink, besides the over 10% ABV, medium body, smooth, creamy and softly carbonated, bitter finish, with lot of orange peel after taste (and burps, burps are definitely pure orange peel!). Excellency in a bottle! jmgreenuk (9447) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - JUL 15, 2017
Tap at Craffity, Chiang Mai. Poured a hazy medium amber with a short-lived frothy white head. The aroma is malt, big tropical fruit citrus, resin hop, alcohol bitter. The flavour is moderate sweet with a sweet orange peel citrus, woody, resin hop, warm burning alcohol bitter palate. Medium bodied with average carbonation.

November 29, 2013 - with blankboy, gregclow, jercraigs & mabel - bomber. Hazy light amber with a smallish white bubbly head. "Smells like Stone" - resin, floral, sweet yet dry, alcohol for sure - quite a lot of pineapple. Taste follows, but add citrus and citrus zest, strong alcohol. Average body and carbonation, astringent, medium long fruity/bitter finish, never OTT but big enough ... I’d have it again. chadski (140) - California, USA - JUL 9, 2017
One of my favorites. Slight lack of head retention but other than that, near perfect. Coppery color with caramel and molasses flavor balanced by hop bitterness. Thick and full-bodied.

UPDATED: JUL 1, 2017 22 oz bottle from Wegmans in Short Pump, VA The ale poured a clear amber color with a huge frothy off white head. Some lacing. The aroma of tropical fruit and some sugary notes. The taste is clean with strawberries and citrus bitterness. the ale has a medium body with average carbonation. This is a BIG IPA. Ten percent maybe my outer limits for beer ABV. Despite massive hop flavor, bitterness is smooth, and the alcohol’s deftly hidden. I corked the bottle to drink two days later. The Triple IPA poured a nice foamy head and same great taste. This a quality beer. deyholla (11598) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 11, 2017

Gift bomber. Quiet pour with modest carbonation and a reserved aroma of citrus and pine. The beer is a golden orange colour with a white head and good lace. The taste is smooth and malty sweet with notes of caramel and hop dryness expanding into the middle. Hops are aggressive in the finish with hints of grapefruit and pine resin. Good mouthfeel throughout and a long warming alcohol glow at the very end. Good! Ronritter (725) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - FEB 23, 2017
