22 oz. bottle served in a . Bottled 7/22/13. Picked up on my recent trip to Lake Tahoe at a local bottle shop.

A: Pours a solid amber color with a white head forming on the pour. It recedes to a thin, bubbly wring. Mild soapy lace.

S: Candied grapefruit and honey dew melon up front with a touch of mango. Light boozy notes with a touch of sweet, crystallized sugar. Light scallion notes bounce in the periphery around the sweetness.

T: Only mild booze up front. Very fruity and citrusy. Nice and strong malt backbone provides a little sweetness and breadines. The booze then kicks then back in on the finish. Definitely drinks like it's 11%. As it warms some light grassy notes with a touch of residual bitterness lingers on the finish.

M: Light to medium bodied with medium carbonation level. Slightly sticky.

O: Far too boozy for my liking. I usually top out around 9.5% or 10% when it comes to my enjoyment of double (or in this case triple) IPA's. The alcohol notes become to to sharp and boozy instead of nice and fruity. Not bad, but definitely wouldn't pick this up again.
