look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Bottled on date of 07/16/14

Appearance - Pours crystal clear and pure gold in color with a white, finger width head. Sub-par retention results in a near barren surface and a small ring of suds around the edge. Lacing is small and spotty, with fair stick.

Smell - Tropical aroma, with huge juicy notes of mango, grapefruit, orange and pineapple. Subtle pine resin undertone.

Taste - Tropical hop is the main show here. Big mango and grapefruit. Light pineapple zing. A bit more pine than the aroma led on, with moderate resin flavor hitting mid-taste and into the finish. Some mild orange pith and nutty stonefruit pit in the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel - Full in body with low carbonation. Thick with a touch of syrupy character, but smooth for such a big beer. Dry finish.

Overall - Pretty damn good. Big, but doesn't overwhelm, at least not in the tangible sense. At 11.1% it can creep up on you fast if you aren't prepared. So yeah, anyway, definitely worth a try.

I had been hearing about this beer for the last year or so, and definitely wanted to give it a go. It met all of the expectations created for it in my imagination.

The beer looked deep, golden orange/bronze. The head was short, off-white, and clingy. This thing had some lacing and nice legs. The taste was outstanding. Big, deep, rich, hop taste. The taste wasn't bright and shiny, for me it was heavy and bright. There was nothing bad about it rich, heavy, and hoppy. This tastes like Port Brewing 15th Anniversary, but with less heat. There was also mango, and some background zest. The mouthfeel of this beer was heavy...and substantial.

Overall, this is an outstanding beer. I would highly recommed this to anyone who can get their hands on it. I thought this was better than Simtra.

A-Clear pale amber color with a medium ivory white head that dissipates steadily. Partial rings of lacing on the glass.

S-Aroma of citrus, caramel and pine. Dank

T-Flavor is medium sweet and strong bitter, pine, caramel, some residual citrus, dank leaves. The taste got better the warmer it got.

M-Mouthfeel give a full body, and creamy. Good carbonation.

O-This triple IPA had to grow on me. I would recommend letting it sit in your glass for a few minutes to really enjoy.
