look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

Given to me as an extra from Woody, Thanks.

A- Dark amber/brownish orange hued with thin head that lingers like a fog on the top of the beer with slight lacing.

S- Dank orange, citrus, grapefruit and pine hops with a huge dose of caramel malt. Huge smell as intended with a triple IPA but loads of malt make me skeptical.

T- Taste is very similar to the aroma but reverse, starts with a mouthful of sweet malt and follows with a more piney/citrus hop. As this beer warms up and you drink more it becomes more syrupy.

M- Full body, thick, sweet malt, oily hops and a decent balance for the style. Carbonation is low and towards the end of my glass was non exisistent. Alcohol is present but only mildly warming, would never guess 12%.

D- Good Triple IPA but I couldn't drink too many of these in one sitting. A little to malty and syrupy for my liking but for the style I got to let that slide.

3.84/5  rDev -1.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

12 oz bottle was poured into a tulip glass.

Appearance: A one finger head was poured that reduced to nothing quickly. It is an amber copper color with good clarity and vision of slow moving bubbles coming up through the glass.

Smell: Floral, grassy, pungent, citrus, onion, garlic, booze, and caramel.

Taste: Same as above. Burning tingly boozy sensation going down. Even after warming up, it's still the same.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, full bodied, low carbonation, tingly bitterness, and real boozy. It's definitely a sipper.

Overall: It's been a while, but still tasty. Should have held on to this one a bit longer.
