3.95/5 rDev +0.8%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Poured into a tulip, bottled 6/3/13
A- pours a dark amber color with a ruby red hue, small creamy off-white head that reduces to a small layer, leaving short lasting lace
S- dry floral and earthy hops, some fruity esters, a trace of garlic & onion, a bit of sweet malt to close it out. Not as pungeant as I would expect from a triple IPA.
T- what it lacked in hop aroma, it makes up for in taste. Bitter earthy and leafy hops attack the palate with some floral, pine and herbal notes. A big malty sweetness kicks in mid-palate that actually stands up to the huge hops, it follows all the way to the finish with more leafy hop notes and just a bit of vegetal flavor, long bitter linger
M- this and viscous body with moderate carbonation leads to a creamy mouthfeel with a smooth finish. Some warming alcohol at the end, but its needed to stand up to the huge flavor.
O- this one is a slow sipper. Thick, boozy and full of hops. I didn't have high hopes after the aroma but the flavor made up for it. Definitely worth a try for hop heads.

4.11/5 rDev +4.8%
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.
