A - Very well filtered, a clear triple, almost reminds me of the younger with how clear this is. Almost NO head, pours nicely.

S - Man, hops. Up front you get the hops. And not just hops but their unique profile, the bitter, sweetness, pine, citrus, etc. Finishes with a faint sweet bread type of smell and some alcohol to punch the nose.

T - The taste up front is hard to describe, the malt is almost too imposive. Mild sweetness, pine, citrus undertones, explosion of bitters, very mild versus the nose.

F - A very palate cleansing beer. Dry finish on the tongue, not the throat, oil/resin. I would put this in the light to medium body. Which is absurd considering this is a triple.

O - This is a great TIPA. I personally would not reach for another glass, mainly because I am not a fan of the Amarillo hop. But despite my disdain, it really shines through in a unique way with this beer. But the biggest drawback is at some points I almost feel the alcohol and body take away from the hops. This definitely feels like this beer is on the verge of becoming something great, but the malt is just to forward.

It's good not great. Has a perfumey/mild-chemically taste mid way thru, after a great nose and initial flavor. Smooth finish with lil to no bitterness for a beer north at 11.1% ABV.
