Poured a wonderful orangish hue with an off white head that leaves sheets of lacing down glass and legs to boot.

A muted hop aroma with a nice bready maltiness that is pleasing.

Well, the muted aroma is not inline with the flavor. Tropical fruit the likes of pineapple papaya mango with some melon quality as well. Nice toasty malt in the back ground.

medium bodied BIG brew that goes down like a pale ale, hides the booze and deceives.

Enjoy as this is a once off.

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

Bottled On: 08/27/13

A: Pours a deep golden orange color with 2 fingers of head that slowly fades down to a chunky cap that leaves some nice lacing

S: Very hoppy. Mostly citrus and tropical fruit with a hint of pine. Decent malt presence that is lightly bready, but the hops are the main focus

T: Follows the nose. Starts off with a big rush of tropical and citrus hop notes balanced nicely by a lightly sweet caramel malt presence. Not really all that bitter. Some pine comes in towards the end. Alcohol almost unnoticeable. Finishes lightly bitter with a lingering tropical fruit note

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Fairly oily and slick

O: A great TIPA with an almost overwhelming hop presence that is actually quite laid back in terms of bitterness. The malts balance very nicely but make sure to give way to the hops. Surprisingly drinkable for 10.1%, but it sneaks up fairly quickly. Recommended

Poured on tap into a snifter at Churchkey.

Nice off white head, very crystal clear amber orange with some deep bronze color.

Nose has an interesting sugar angle, light and brown with some sweetness of penny candy citrus. Hop front seems to follow the citrus angle, but it is a bit monotone.

Palate brings mellow malts and hop with a light pine air finish. Finish also brings some nice minty closure. Thick malt depth and backbone on this with very hidden alcohol. Palate is very slick. Great chewy hop oils to go with it.

A real nice enjoyable twist. Sugar angle on this is large but surprisingly tolerable and works well in the palate. Nicely done.

A: somewhere between deep gold and pale amber with an ivory head as-big-as-you-want-it that'll leave plenty of lace down the glass

S: rich and sweet malts are perfumed with lots of lightly floral and herbal hops with a distinct, like, "clean" aroma - the air-dried linens of the hop world; as it warmed the malts asserted themselves a bit more, bring forth a heartier and chewier, caramel character and sweetness, while the hops remained bitter, suggestive of pine and deep, earthy musk

T: the malts suggest pale fruits and fresh grains from breezy fields with clean air and sunshine; crisp hops are floral, bright, and fresh - everything about this tastes fresh and clean and new

M: medium-light feeling, ample carbonation, very clean-finishing; crisp and light (in a triple IPA!), with a mellow but undeniably perfect bittering and drying finish

O: awesome - how this is a TIPA is beyond me - there is nothing thick or cloying or heavy-handed about this at all - almost like a marriage between a pilsener and an IPA - dangerously drinkable, extremely tasty - a real delight

Pours a slightly hazy, dark orange color with a two and a half finger off white head. Leaves a thin blanket of lacing. Decent carbonation coming off the glass. Smells of slight pine, lemon, lime, melon, grapefruit, floral, and a slight sweet carmel breadiness. A very nice hoppy, yet clean aroma. Taste pretty much follows the aroma. Starts with lots of melon and citrus fruits like lemon and grapefruit. Some floral notes as well. Then the middle brings a some malt presence, as sweet carmel and a bready and grainy quality emerge and balance the hops a bit. The finish is definitely the showcase of this beer. The bready and grainy malts continue to last through the finish, but are overpowered by notes of sweet melon, some type of tropical fruit, pine, grass, lots of clean floral, lemon, and lime. A candy-like sweetness comes through and cuts the bitterness well, which is key. Even so, a dry and lingering bitter finish, which is expected for a west coast triple ipa. Nice warming sensation from the alcohol, but none to taste. High medium body with a creamy, surprisingly crisp (for 10%), and oily mouthfeel. The New Zealand hops add a great layer of complexity to this beer that is missing from many double ipas. Different and well done. Glad this is now a yearly offering.

Just kicked the keg--very foamy, but it lasts. The liquid is nearly clear with a deep amber color.

Good blend of pale malt and soft floral hops.

Creamy, semi-sweet and strongly bitter. You can taste the alcohol. It warms the saallow. Full body but with high carbonation. The aftertaste is of pine resin and hot pepper.
