A-Pours a cloudy, dark orange juice hue. Head is pretty thick. He head keeps growing and settles into about an inch and a half of thick, white fluff. Rather light on the lace.

S-A rich, damp, tropical fruit juice aroma. Boozy peach, apricot and mango. Fistfuls of squished citrus. Green grass and a dank element. Sweet, full biscuit malt.

T-A gripping bear hug of hoppiness. I am impressed by the concentrated mango flavor. I also get papaya, peach, nectarine and tangerine. All of the hop-fruits taste soaked in booze because this brew is pretty hot. The malt has enough flavor for me to at least notice.

M-Hops sit and settle on the palate. Very bitter. Quite hot. Very resinous. Sticky. Softer bubbles.

O-I enjoyed the more than Double Sunshine (which I find to be good but overrated). A giant dose of resinous hop goo. It has it's flaws, though. In the end I was super lucky to try Triple Sunshine. I wouldn't make a point of taking a trip to VT just to try it again.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

650 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Cloudy and murky, although the first pour from the bottle was much clearer. Small white head. Leggy and a little bit of lacing. Wispy surface.

Smell - Lots of tropical fruit. Pale malt. A bit of doughy sweetness. A little bit of diacetyl.

Taste - Much better, but there's a little bit of diacetyl. Strong tropical fruit and orange hops. Hint of grainy malt. Moderate pale malt sweetness and the slightest bitterness.

Mouthfeel - A little astringent. Not very boozy and doesn't drink like 10.5%. Medium carbonation.

Overall - The diacetyl is very mild, so it doesn't kill it. Otherwise a good beer.
