On tap at the Boneyard Tasting Room, 6.13.11, multiple samples.

Bright white head, fairly quick dissipation, above average lacing. Deep gold clear body, multiple streams of carbonation. Nose is a slight bit more tropical than citrus, bready malts. Big hop blast up front in the taste, not overwhelmingly hop forward like a lot of other triple IPAs, re the Younger and that god awful Founders version. Mouthfeel is medium not a lot of effervescence. Dangerously drinkable, I had a hard time picking up any alcohol heat, which was a major surprise. I don't expect the growler of this I bring to PDX BA Beer Camp this weekend will last more than a couple of minutes. I wish all high ABV IPAs were this drinkable. This is a really good beer. Worth seeking out--or coming to Bend for!

EDIT-Bumped smell score up. Other than the Barley Brown's Head Shake, this is the closest thing aroma-wise to PP Poor Man's.

The best beer I've ever tasted. Had 10 oz. pour on tap at the growler cafe in Lebanon, OR 1/2/15. This is my fourth time tasting notorious over the past 3 years and each has been one of my most memorable moments tasting beer. The rest I cannot put into words. You have to try for yourself.

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.

On tap at Apex in Portland

This beer has a lot of hype. I haven't had the younger but I've heard and read that this is a legit rival. The accolades here are just deserved. This is delicious all the way through. Entirely drinkable while only feeling the alcohol vs tasting it. It's an initial grapefruit bomb splashed with tasty hops. The hops takeover but are in no way overpowering. If it weren't for being hammered I could drink this one for quite a while and not tire of it at all. It's thick but not syrupy. Absolutely delicious and happy to have found it before it went away for the year. A must try.

Review from notes. Had on tap at Latona.

A: Pours a hazy orange with one finger of sudsy white head on top. Nice head retention, slowly reducing to a thin cap on top. Sheets of lacing form all around the glass.

S: Could smell this beer as soon as it was set in front of me. Tons of citrus and tropical fruits. Grapefruit, tangerine, papaya, and pineapple. There is a faint malty sweetness and a little bit of alcohol as it warms.

T: Follows the aroma with a ton of juicy citrus. More grapefruit, orange, pineapple, and tropical fruit. Very faint malt sweetness, but this one is all hops. Not overly bitter either.

M: Medium to full bodied with moderate carbonation. Relatively easy drinking, probably because it tastes so good. ABV surprising at 12%.

O: Wow, loved this beer. Finished my glass and ordered a second right away. Look forward to having it again.

on tap, brouwers

Hot mama - this stuff is legit. Pungent tropical fruit, blood orange, mandarin, pine. On the sweet side and with enough alcohol heat to keep you honest, but this was really exceptional. Much better than hop venom, imo. Unfortunate that the kegs kick so quickly, would have loved to have more than just one.
