Appears solid clear gold with a small white head.

It smells of resinous hops. I get an earthy grassy dank smell. A bit of a floral smell and a mild citrus hop smell is noticeable I smell almost no malty flavor except for a mild sweet smell.

It tastes of dank hops. I get a floral and grassy flavor a mild orange like flavor and a bit of a pine like hop flavor. The beer has a bit of malty sweetness but for the alcohol content it is quite dry. The beer ends with a substantial amount of bitterness that is not over the top.

The mouthfeel is somewhat syrupy.

Overall a great triple IPA. Unlike many triple IPAs this is not that sweet and it is somewhat light. This beer does a great job showcasing a plethora of hop flavor. (727 characters)

Hand bottle from Tony.

This is a pretty crazy beer, a really interesting take on the triple IPA. Pours lighter than I expected, a tawny gold color, RPM IPA looks like a red ale next to this one! Pure white head bubbles up, a nice looking beer, though not what I was expecting for a triple IPA... cool!

Nose is hops hops hops. The hop bill reminds me a bit of RPM, and with the flavor, this beer could be an approximate triple of RPM. Which is awesome. Some of the solventy hop aromas are there, reminding me that this is indeed a triple IPA (Founder's Devil Dancer comes to mind for these aromas). Flavor is remarkably hoppy, but so hoppy that it kind of stuns the palate, making the beer seem less hoppy... does that make sense? Nicely carbonated, giving the beer a light refreshing feel. This is a really hoppy brew, focusing on the piney-herbal-floral side (I think), but definitely drinkable too. At 12%, this guy drinks like 7%, which is amazing.

It's nice to try a triple IPA that drinks like an IPA and not one of the more laborious, sticky sweet TIPAs out there. Nice one here! (1,089 characters)

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. (906 characters)
