4.83/5  rDev +5.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

When it comes to extreme IPAs the theme tends to be the more bitter the better, balance be damned. They can be fun, but I often walk away feeling like someone took a chinook flamethrower to the back of my mouth.

With notorious this is not the case. This has got to be one of the most balanced and surprisingly (dangerously) sessionable triple IPAs that I've ever had.

Serving type: hand bottle from Tony

Appearance is yellow-orange with a decent head (considering the miles traveled to Cleveland)

Aroma is dank, huge grapefruits, lots of pine, and a hint of booze.

Taste starts out by echoing the aroma with strong notes of grapefruit, pine, and a moderate hop bitterness that is backed up with what is at first only a subtly perceptible docket of honey-like malt flavors. The booze is slightly perceptible as the hop flavors fade (at 12% these liquor flavors are incredibly well hidden). The beer finishes strong with the malt flavors building to a sweet end-note that balance the lingering hop bitterness.

Mouthfeel is surprisingly light and dry considering the malts needed to achieve this kind of ABV.

Overall an outstanding example of the triple IPA. Delivers for the hop-heads, disguises its booze, and balances any lingering hop bitterness with a strong malt bill.

4.95/5  rDev +8.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 5

Served in a 6oz snifter on tap.

This is probably the most aromatic IPA I have ever tried. As soon as the bar keep set it down, everyone up and down the bar could smell it. Fresh pine, citrus primary, herbaceous and dank as a secondary impression. A very rounded hop nose

Color is deep gold / orange with a white effervescent head, medium size bubbles. Lighter than what you would expect for a 12%

Taste is a hopsplosion. Basically more of the fully rounded hop nose with the addition the right amount of bitterning, not too much, but still plenty. Good overall citrus and malt balance. For a 12% not a lot of malt or sweetness.

Mouthfeel is creamy, smooth and sticky.

A very big beer overall, but still drinkable. Closest to Pliny the Younger. Highly recommend.

Serving type: on-tap
