Pours a murky orangish gold. Lots of visible carbonation. Small to medium, but persistent head. Smell is citrusy hops but not as intense as you might expect. Taste has great hop flavor and complexity. Herbal, floral, and citrus. Mild rounded bitterness and great hoppy aftertaste. Nice underlying malty sweetness balances this out. Fantastic creamy and full bodied mouthfeel. Delicious stuff. Overall this is an excellent DIPA.

12 oz.

Pours a deep honey amber, off-white lacing for a head.

Smells of rich caramel malts and citrus and floral hops. Some apple sweetness too.

Tastes of mildly bitter piney hops and caramel malts with honey and apple sweetness. Some citrus tartness as well.

Medium to full body with a light tingly carbonation on the tongue accompanied by a slight alcohol sting and a noticeable warmth going down.

A very good strong IPA, slightly boozy feeling, great flavor and aroma. Could stand to mask its potency a bit more and maybe have a bit more body, but otherwise well worth having. Could become a local favorite.

A-cloudy light orange with a stable thin head

S-extremely strong scent of orange and bitterness. there's a strong spice to it as well. it tingles the nose as much as any IPA can.

T-comes in with a mouth puckering bitterness. there's a strong hit of spicy citrus. this one hits you hard, similar to my first dance with hoptimum. it has an aged herbal aspect to it as well. the after-taste focuses on the herbs with a lasting effect of booze. this hits the head fast.

M-bitter. medium creamy carbonation with a dry finish

O-it doesn't quite have the complexity or balance of a truly great IPA, but it does pack the punch of any hop bomb. it's good for the lower cost, and I recommend this to any hop head out there.

Got this one at Stockertown Bev. upon recommendation by a few friends. A relatively new brewery out of Pittsburgh that needed to be tried. This beer in particular caught my interest. 180 IBU's is ridiculous, and being backed by crystal malt, this was going to be different than your average imperial. The pour was your average imperial color, mild reddish brown with minimal head. The nose was everything you would expect, floral hops with citrus notes. It was the taste that caught me, up front it was spectacular. All three hops are very present...warrior, amarillo, and columbus. The mouth was where this beer went odd. It had all the power and punch with the hops, but crystal malt is too weak to back up this mammoth hop bomb. I still appreciated this beer very much and would definitely have another one, but after reading other's reviews, I can understand where they lost this beer. It just doesn't sit in the pallet. I really enjoyed it, but I guess the public is not ready for a 180 IBU bitter punch without the malt to match.

My favorite during a session at the newest Sharp Edge location, poured in their new smaller pour high octane chalices. A slightly hazed golden orange bright bodied, with a light white head forms even lace as it dwindles. Aroma has fruity pineapple/citrus notes actually intense citric hops with mild pine/mint going on. A hint of bready yeast this has to be a Belgian style IPA a mix of a triple/IPA aka TriPA also brewed in a tristate region of OH/WV/PA. Flavor is super aggressive with hop flavor and a decent bitterness. Fruity citric hops some grapefruit with tropical pineapple juicy mango fruit tones and hint of pine harshness. Complex warming alcohol with a spicy yeast note as well. Mouthfeel is resinous with hop oils big bold American style BIPA. Carbonation is lively carries the beer all the way through, very enjoyable will hae to revisit this brew to see if it's actually as good as I thought it was or if the other beers I had that day were actually that lackluster.

Whoot! First bottle review! Surprised to find this at my local bottle shop for a 3.00 single. Six pack will hopefully be cheaper.

A - Wow from a nice pour I only got a slight ring of head with a nice bit of lace. Color is of dark amber haze and... Is this unfiltered? Bits of sediment throughout.

S - Doesn't smell too in your face hoppy but I do get some citrus malts along side a nice bready like malt profile. Doesn't smell crazy through just eh.

T - It does have a nice hop taste to it with a lingering bitterness but comes off kind of sweet with more malts than hops. ABV is totally masked so it is enjoyable. Still could use more hops for a name like TriPA.

M - Surprisingly for the ABV I am drinking this rather quickly with a medium body so it is pretty tasty.

Overall I guess it was totally worth it for this DIPA. More hop flavor I guess would make this more bitter thus less drinkable. And of almost equal ABV of Double Trouble I find this less alcoholic tasting. At least it's better than Dogfish Head 90 minute that the truth. Solid DIPA.

Tri-PA pours out a hazy light brown color with a small head that leaves spotty lacing. The aroma is piney hops and caramel malts. The taste is basically double IPA by the books. Piney hops over a solid caramel malt backbone. It's tasty, but doesn't do anything that hasn't been done by, say, DFH 90 Minute. The mouthfeel is medium bodied and lightly carbonated, and the drinkability is good. Overall, it's just a solid DIPA. Nothing wrong with that.

Pours a hazy orange-ish color with an off white head. In the aroma, citrus hops and a hint of pine. In the taste, starts off with some mango and orange citrus and ends with a dry pine like hop presence, with a nice malt backing all the way through. a small hop bite, and a medium to bigger bodied mouthfeel, with a dry pine like aftertaste. Wow! Really impressed by this one, bigger body, but big hops and hiding the 9%, quite nice.

On tap at Mad Mex Robinson, 06/04/2011

12oz pour served in a (water) glass. Arrived at the table with a single finger of off-white head. Some lacing as the foam dissipated. The body is a light amber base with yellowish hues toward the edges.

The nose is pretty floral with some resin characters mixed in. Pretty much dominated by hops.

The flavor follows the nose, but as you palate adjusts to the bitterness, you can pick up some malts in the background. Crisp and clean throughout.

Light-medium bodied, well carbonated with a slightly dry finish.

This is another quality offering from the folks at Full Pint. Great flavor...especially if you enjoy the hops. I wish this was available in bottles<hint>!
