Little thick. … Sort of cough syrup.

Best by July 10, 2015. Skinny can into a pint glass.

A: Pours an extremely clear orange with a fluffy head that quickly dissipates. Lots of tiny bubbles heading upward. Uniform lacing.

S: Nothing strong. Danky citrus. No pine.

T: There's the hoppy pine, along with grapefruit and tropical notes. A little sweetness towards the end, then a quick dry with not much bitterness. Really smooth for this style.

M: Sticky but not heavy.

O: Superb. The 115 IBU is believable, but the 10.5% ABV is very well hidden among the hoppy/grapefruit/tropical flavors. As tasty as this was, I got a fresh growler fill that was even better.

12oz can served in a Tulip glass. Best before 10 July 2015.

Appearance: Bright coppery-amber. Thin persistent white head. Some small strands and islands of persistent lacing.

Smell: Pine, fresh cut citrus/grapefruit, hint of tropical fruit, and as it warms up, just a hint of onion.

Taste: Lots of hoppy flavor including pine, grapefruit, lemon, orange, papaya, with some malt sweetness for balance. Finish is very hoppy, with citrus rind, more pine and grapefruit citrus, and something a bit spicy that builds a little heat.

Mouthfeel: Smooth and nicely thick with a light amount of resiny stickiness on the teeth. Light prickly carbonation.

Overall / Drinkability: Oh so very good and better after it warms up a bit. Nicely drinkable as a slow sipper / savoring beer. Went very well with food (Kedgeree) and I think it would pair with lots of other foods. A very nice full flavored and full bodied DIPA.

Beautiful beer to look at nice smell and great mouth feel. Did not try last year's but based on other reviews I would say this one is not too boozy. That said, it's a tad sweet, but very tasty. Already looking forward to the next iteration.

12 oz can poured into Speigelau glass

A: beautiful crystal clear dark gold color laces like crazy

S: smells like gold sweet stinky hops very resiny

T: it's so good it's like a resin bomb it's so well crafted and the alcohol is hidden

M: It's chewy and sticky on the taste

O: this beer is insanely good it's sticky dank resinious and excellent

A lot of fruity, juicy sweetness in this bad boy, and it really balances the malt and ABV. The 10% takes it up to HopSlam ABV, but I'd take this over HopSlam any day of the week.

Triple IPA is right. The high ABV definitely brought a serious sweetness with it but they hopped it like crazy so it balances. There is this almost blue cheese / volcanic feel to the beginning of this beer. I like it a lot.
