Bottle courtesy of 67couple, poured into a tulip. Been on my wants for quite some time, thanks for this one dude. Bottled on date of May 28, 2010.
My first triple IPA! Pours a hazy, deep golden brown, with hints of a lighter orange/tangerine around the edges. Couple fingers of offwhite head, and massive, thick and chunky lace. Minimal retention. Aroma is grapefruit, pine and oranges, alcohol peaks through a touch also. Hops are huge here, some dark breadiness as well. Alcohol becomes more prominent with warmth. Malt hits immediately, slick and sweet, very caramel-like. Fruits are hot on its tail, and a wave of alcohol arrives. Seeing as this has been sitting around for quite a bit, it feels as if this almost approached barleywine territory here. Malt is quite sweet here too, and although I heard some people claim that this takes away quite a bit from the beer, I have no problem with this. Many have also claimed that this is an absolute palate wrecker, and although I agree to a degree, I've had suffered more at the hands of other beers (this however may be a function of the bottling date). Does some substantial damage as well. Mouthfeel is a bit slick and sticky, with medium carbonation, and surprisingly reasonable drinkability given the 12% ABV. Mouthfeel became quite a bit stickier and syrupy as it warmed too. One is probably enough for the time being however.

4.11/5 rDev +5.1%
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.
