This triple ipa pours a clear copper color with a generous off-white head that gives way to a nice film and lacing. The aroma is super bitter and hoppy. Lots of Pine, grass, grapefruit, and tropical fruit notes. There is also a generous malt undertone and alcohol bite. The mouthfeel us smooth and very near full bodied. It is sticky in the best if ways. A touch more carbonation would actually make it perfect. The flavor is a near perfect blend of bitter hops and malts. There is a lot of bitterness here and a very hot alcohol bite. I like it but it is mot for the faint of heart. Great sipping triple ipa. If you find this....try it!

4.1/5  rDev -4.4%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pale amber with white trailers.
Super oily lemon with a touch of passionfruit on the nose.
Sponge cake malts and big pink grapefruit, light pine, mango, and passionfruit hops.
Evergreen-papaya end and hot minty linger.
Medium, chewy, hot, oily.

Boozy, fruity, and sticky - almost brandy-like. Good showcase for these hops - "bursting with flavor" sez a fellow sampler - but could be toned down a bit.

Not the benchmark for this hop combo, as I expected.
