Served on tap at Saraveza in Portland on 2/23/13.
A: Light orange with a soapy-looking head that retained for a bit. Nice lacing.
S: Possibly the best smelling beer I've ever tried. Bursting with tropical fruit. Pineapple, citrus, light grass. Smells like super fresh hops.
T: Follows the nose with juicy citrus hops. Grapefruit, pineapple, citrus, and enough of a malt bill to keep things balanced. Hops don't make you pucker as it finishes and leaves the palate feeling nice and clean. So fresh tasting.
M: Medium-heavy mouthfeel, but not syrupy or overwhelming. Alcohol is very, very subtle for a beer with this high of an abv. This might be more drinkable than it should be...
O: Lives up to the hype. Not sure if it was just this batch, but I was totally blown away. Please make more of this.

Received this as an extra in the Homebrewtalk MAW thread. Growler poured into a snifter.
A: Pours a bright golden with very little head that reduces to next to nothing. There's a slight copper tone in the color.
S: This beer is quite possibly the most potent dank bomb I've encountered to date. Smelling this beer is nothing short of sticking your face in a freshly opened bag of hops. Citrus, grapefruit, and earthy floraly goodness that blows my mind. There's also a bit of bubble gum that started to come through as it warmed up a bit.
T: The taste of this certainly compliments the aroma. Very fruity with lots of sweetness that masks the ABV very well. I do get a slight alcohol burn, but it's so well disguised in the flavor it doesn't even matter that it's there.
M: Carbed very well, especially for a growler. With the thickness that a big beer demands, the carb level fits. Leaves a pretty dry after taste, but the flavor and aroma linger with the dryness.
O: This is easily the best Triple IPA I've ever had. Prior to this I bench marked to Devil Dancer - no more. With receiving this as an extra, I had hopes of it being good, but I did not anticipate this at all. I will absolutely be seeking this out again. From now on, I am always ISO: Notorious.

Major thanks to John for this extra!
Decanted from a 32oz. growler into a Deschutes teku (I know, blasphemy, but I don't have a Boneyard glass yet). Translucent amber with a full finger of white head (held up amazingly after a week in the growler), which retains as a ringlet, lacing the glass nicely. Blast of fresh, juicy, West Coast hops in the aroma! Pine, oily grapefruit and orange, pineapple, cat pee, marijuana..it's pretty much hops all the way. More of the same in the taste, dank, rindy, citrus oils, tropical fruits, ammonia, pot; there's a definite sweet caramel malt base that can't be avoided, but unlike many DIPAs or "TIPAs" that turn into malt-bombs when the brewers try for that higher ABV, the malt profile here is very tame and the hops stay fully in charge. So I'd say the malt character is "quite appropriate." Speaking of ABV, I would never have guessed this at 12%...I mean there is some booziness for sure, and yeah, I'm definitely feeling the strength already, but tastewise, the alcohol intrusion is relatively moderate. Medium body, crisp but unctuous mouthfeel, moderate carbonation, slightly "sticky" in the aftertaste. This harkens back to the first time I tried Pliny the Younger, and I dare say I like this one better than PtY in the past 2 or 3 years. I want more of this...a lot more.
