Got this on the day it was bottled as part of El Segundo's day of dankness program. They bottle the beer and distribute it to a handful of bottle shops on the same day, so it is ultra fresh.

This is a fantastic TIPA in my opinion. At 11.7 this is a smooth drinker. Not crushable by any stretch of the term, but for the ABV it's pretty phenomenal. I'm not sure what this beer tastes like when it's not fresh, but this was one of the best triple ipas I've had. I just had Societe Miser this week, also on the first day of release, and this was as good as that I think. Very close. I would love to try them side by side. Haven't had Younger so I can't compare to it. This was better than The Knee Deep offerings I've had.

Too boozy for my tastes. The hops were harsh and could have been more balanced. Balance and lowering the alcohol burn would greatly improve it. Triple IPAs just seem to go too overboard on the hops and the alcohol.

This is the Triple IPA at ESBC. Probably the best tasting brew I had while at the brewery, but its high BAC prevented me from indulging.

Delicious sweet and malty monster with a sane amount of bittering hops. Tantalizing aroma of toasted barley and fermenting pineapple. Great spritzy and tangy mouthfeel. Modest head on the orangey golden brew in the big snifter.

This is among the fruitiest brews ever, but it's just so good. If you could get this serious mango flavor in a Belgian lambic, it would be delirious. Tastes like toasted brioche with apricot jam! Golden sweet, syrupy even, but bsalanced by the tart flavors of lime peel and a grapefruit acidity.

Powerful alcohol taste but it just fits well with the lush richness. Hugely hoppy but not overly bitter. This is all about the aromatics. It's the Mountain Dew of the gods. On tap at the jolly brewery tap in downtown El Segundo.
