Took this to a bottle share and I took 3 pours of it myself. Hides the booze incredibly well. I would get another bottle and make it my entire night. It's an attractive pour that jumps out of the glass and into your nose. You get all of the bright citrus and pine on the nose. The taste covers all the spectrums you'd expect from a triple IPA. Thirst quenching citrus with a bitter pine jolt. The aftertaste does not linger too long like some IPAs can. This was truly a fantastic IPA and any fan of this style should seek out a bottle.

4.39/5  rDev +2.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A: Pours a light copper color with a fluffy bone white head. Leaves smears of sticky lace down the glass. Lots of visible carbonation rising from the bottom as well.

S: An explosive tropical hop aroma right off the bat. Mango, tangerine, candied grapefruit and a boatload of pine. Some faint bready malt with a touch of caramel sweetness lingers in the back, but it's pretty safe to say this is a hop forward DIPA.

T: A rich drawl of piney hops across the palate that just keeps going and going. Some grapefruit pith as well along with a blanket of caramel malt that keeps the bitterness in check without taking away from all of the fantastic hop flavor. I wouldn't go as far as to say this rivals Pliny, but this is a really well put together DIPA. Absolutely worth a try.
