Has a really hazy look to it I assume from all the hopping but I like that look. The smell reminds me of Nugget Nectar actually with a really sweet tropical fruit/grapefruit like smell. On the taste its really smooth with a sweet tropical fruit flavor all from the hops. The hop flavor is off the charts. Very sweet from the malts and hops coming together in a fantastic unison. On the finish I get such a nice pine/herbal green hop taste and strong bitterness.

The bitterness comes through in a piney green herbal taste. Very delicious. I actually really don't taste that much alcohol and that's awesome for being a 11.5 percent beer. The only hint of it being that high in alcohol is the slight burn it gives you on the way down and the buzz it gives you...wow.

Like I always say.. get this beer, you won't be disappointed. Pennsylvania brews some quality beers wow. The only way you'll be disappointed is if you don't like hops and can't handle a really bitter bite.The IBU's are off the chart here. I'll be sure to definitely try more beers from this brewery. Awesome job Fegley's. To me this is an A plus beer perfect scoring beer to me.

12 oz bottle labeled "Triple India Pale Ale"

Pours a deep clear gold into my Duvel tulip. With more light, orange comes through the color. A little haze, but, still really clear. During the pour, a finger and a half head rose up. However, it dissipated very quickly to less than half a finger.

Not a big nose to this one. The hops are floral with sweet citrus - orange, more tangerine. The sweetness is mainly from the malts. Some alcohol in the nose. All of these aromas are subtle. A nice, balanced nose.
-later note- the sweet alcohol and floral hops get bigger as it warms.

Loads of sweetness from the malts on the tip of the tongue and a lingering bitterness on the middle of the tongue in the finish. The lasting bitterness is pleasant and not harsh by any means. Definitely an alcohol presence in the taste, but, it's easily forgotten. I really enjoy how the sweetness comes through in this beer. It keeps the bitterness from wrecking the palate. The hops are both floral and earthy.

The feel of this beer is light, but, not thin at all. It could have been a lot higher in ABV, but, the residual sugar give it a nice body. A little stickiness to it, but, I'm liking it.

A sipper. Too light-bodied to be a barleywine, but, it has the strength and fresh hoppiness of an American BW. This is not a beer that's tough t drink. Too easy for the strength, but, the alcohol notes remind you to take it easy. I'm glad I didn't see the 750 bottles, or else this one might have taken all night.

Seek this out.
