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.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A-a ruby caramel color with a thin layer of cream head that disappears quickly to leave a layer of lace

S-caramel and toffee, rum soaked raisins, the hops become more present as the beer warms. Big pine and citrus presence.

T-much more hops in the taste than the smell. Caramel malt, raisins and pine and citrus hop bitterness. I can't believe this is 12%...

M-full body, reminds me a bit of a barleywine, light to moderate carbonation, pretty smooth for such a big beer

Overall a very big beer, not too sweet, good bitterness, and no alcohol burn.
