look: 4.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Bottled 1/16/14, poured into a tulip
A- Pours a dark amber orange color with a small creamy off-white head that retains long after the pour, leaving some small patches of short-lasting lace behind
S- citrus hop aroma up front with some sharp grassy notes. Also picking up notes of hemp, herbal and earthy tones. Toasted bready malt underlying
T- big hop punch up front gives flavors of citrus, mango, grass, mint and some leafy notes. The malt sweetness is just as big as the hop kick with underlying bready almost doughy flavors leading to a sweet finish
M- thick and viscous body with medium prickly carbonation leads to a thick and foamy mouthfeel and a creamy finish. Lots of alcohol warmth on the linger
O- big and bold, this one packs a punch. I've noticed that with a lot of the "triple" IPA's that are over 11%, they seem to drink like a barley wine. This one was the same, I enjoyed it but prefer the hops to shine a little more on their own whiten it comes to DIPA's

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.
