Bottle to Lawson's Willie Belcher

A: Super hazy bright orange color with a fluffy white head. Lots of lacing. Very pretty.

S: Possibly the best smelling IPA I've ever encountered. Like Double Sunshine, just more so. Citrusy deliciousness.

T: Taste following the nose. This really is DS just taken to another level. Everything I love about DS is there in spades. There is a hint of alcohol as it warms.

M: Excellent carbonation, same juicy mouthfeel as DS.

O: I generally don't enjoy "triple" IPAs. I find most of them to be really boozy and malty/sweet, and without much hop aroma (Hi-RES and Hop Shortage come to mind). Triple Sunshine somehow avoids those normal pitfalls that seem to come with such a high ABV IPA. Aside from a bit of alcohol as it warms, this is just as aromatic and juicy as Double Sunshine. I wouldn't say it is "better" than DS, but I wouldn't say it is "worse" either. They are now both my favorite IPAs.

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.
