look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5
Bottled 01/16/14 and consumed on the day of review.
L: Amber with a nice rocky/frothy head. Damn good retention for such a high abc, some nice lacing as well.
A: Big pine resin, citrus, and fruity hops. There is some nice sweet breadiness and but not much caramel malt character. Clean fermentation profile.
T/M: Huge bitterness upfront, moves into a dry body filled with classic piney and resiny simcoe hop character but with a nice fruity mango/melon edge to it. The malt brings some nice balance without getting to sweet, a great accomplishment considering the alcohol content. Dry finish with lingering hop astringency.
Overall, I can't believe that a 2 month old Triple IPA tastes this damn good. That alone makes this one of the greatest hoppy brews out there, I can only imagine how hoppy this is fresh. Buy it, this stuff is great.

Amber colored with decent head retention and lacing for its strength. Dank, pungent aroma thick with green, spicy hops, herbs, scallions, butterscotch, mango, passion fruit, and toffee. A big hoppy burst greets the senses right away, followed by a substantial toasted malt backing. Honey, grapefruit, mango, resin, and caramel. Boozy alcohol smothered by bitterness, malty sweet under the hops, and warming…American Barleywine territory. Not a great finish – a little too hot and sticky. Rather heavy, textured, and bitter. That, in addition to being somewhat under-carbonated hurts the drinkability. Oh boy…I really wanted to like this one, but it’s just too sticky and brash to be all that enjoyable. Not bad, just disappointing and overrated.
