look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Appears a glowing orange with a head of white that quickly fades. Tiny bits of lacing are left around the glass.
Smell - holy hop extract, batman! Lots of pine resin there!
Taste is a tad too much with some sweet caramel, and a shit ton of hops that come through as concentrated hop cones with pine, citrus, and cut wood.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied, piney, and bitter.

Review from Feb 2012

Poured from a 22 I got from the brewery earlier this year. Should be fresh.

A: Pours a golden, almost amber color with a dense white head. Head slowly fade to just a ring around the exterior and leaves no lacing behind.

S: My first thought as I poured this one was overwhelmingly of fresh wet grassy aromas. As I smell the beer more I get some bubblegum and perhaps a bit of citrus and onion.

T: Taste is not as bitter as I was expecting from this "triple ipa". Flavors are hoppy and the oniony smell is translating into the flavor, which I don't care for. Mid sip grassy flavors are present along with a sweetness from the grain. As the beer warms I can taste more citrus/grapefruit flavors, but the onion taste dominates.

M: Great medium full body with a good amount of carbonation. This beer does not leave much bitterness behind. I've had IPAs that tasted more bitter than this.

O: While this was a well crafted beer with little to no off flavors I was expecting more. As noted above I've had single IPAs that taste more bitter than this and leave a more bitter aftertaste (ex: huma lupa licious). Also, whatever kind of hop gives that onion flavor (summit?) is disgusting. This reminds me of Gubna in that aspect, and I don't enjoy that beer either.
