Another "triple" IPA . . .
A: Served in a snifter with a small white head that quickly reduces down to a surface coating and some around the rim of the glass. Beer itself is reddish brown in color.
S: Surprisingly muted. You'd think a beer marketed as a "triple" IPA would have an aroma that could be smelt across the room, but I had to jam my nose in the glass to even get a wiff. Mostly pine, with some notes of cedar, wood, and earth.
T: Palate wrecker. On the first few sips this beer tasted dank and overly herbaceous displaying that same weird out-of-place grassy green flavor that pot-brownies often have. However, after destroying my taste buds, this one began to mellow resulting in more earthy and woody flavors and a reserved but exceedingly persistent bitterness with the flavor of a chewed-on toothpick.
M: Heavier side of medium with medium carbonation level. A harsh, sticky, bitterness that had incredible staying power.
D: Enjoyably harsh and almost difficult to drink, this one was a sipper, but the flavor profile encourage another sip. This beer is a fine example of hop overkill: just too much of a good thing. This beer would have benefited from a little moderation, though I will note that the high 12% was exceedingly well hidden.
Serving type: on-tap

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Bottled 5/24/13 at 45 degrees into imperial pint
Aroma – very deep pine/hemlock aroma
Head large (6.5cm), frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing to a 2 mm layer
Body clear, more amber than orange
Flavor begins with a thick sweet piney taste, very resinous, no alcohol, no diacetyl
Palate is medium, oily to syrupy, with a light bitter finish
I realize this beer is technically past its prime, but has aged well, becoming a very smooth flavorable ale. I’ll be buying more to cellar.
Serving type: bottle
