Wow, this is a pallet blaster. So complex. I get a soft pine, herbiness, then citrus on the back end. Each sip keeps you thinking about the complexity. Awesome beer.

Wow! Intense hop flavor, nicely balanced without the harsh bitterness one might expect from a brew with an IBU rating this high. The ABV is very high, but very deceptive, dangerously deceptive!

I love this "triple IPA", and that is coming from someone who is not a huge IPA fan. Definitely will be looking for this one again.

Bottle purchased at Oliver's in Albany, NY.

Pours a honeyish orange, mostly clear, with a small half inch head, and a little bit of lacing.

Smells quite brash, very citrusy, with some sugar cookie malt aromas as well.

This is one of the hoppiest beers I've ever had, really. This is about a month old, which is probably about as fresh as I'll ever get it in New York. The alcohol is mostly hidden, but it's still a bit hot, providing a prickly buzz. There are marijuana/hemp flavors, grapefruit, orange, peach, pine resin, and sugar cookie flavors.

This one has a medium body, with a very sticky and thick mouthfeel. There's a medium amount of carbonation, and it's very drinkable, even despite the really high ABV.

This one met the hype for me, really glad I got to try it.
