New Jersey

3.23/5  rDev -17.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3

eyes...
best by 5.5.14 (really? I doubt it)
3 full fingers of the white foam, a veritable maelstrom of bubbles cavorting like some tornado of carbonation, slightly burnt orange and clean hue, super nice lacing (the head really sticks together and rolls like a tide in the glass), good looking brew

nose...
muted herbal hops with some pine twinge, plenty of malt aroma mixed with a splash of orange... overall pretty simple and seemingly less than what I would expect from a triple IPA... but generally some new zeal hops do have that mango-ish tinge rather than the alpha hop burst of the turbo driven american alpha monster hops.. I prefer to buy american

taste etc...
nice silky feel immediately, the IBUs here can not be too high, this is lacking a major punch, triple means three times... I would hate to see what this is multiplied by to get to three... I had some of their other beers and I know they were hoppier than this, the alcohol is well hidden behind the malts which shows the brewer's deft use there (as 10% is not that easy to hide), further on the glass now the hops have become a little more forward but still not blowing me away.. they are sort of lingering in the back and lend an OK bitterness hanging out in the back side quadrants of my tongue

verdict?
good use of malts to back up the high ABV, but the hops are way too subtle for me, I want my hops to kick me in the teeth. this is not a bad beer but a tripel IPA should bring a bit more IMO... maybe I am a hop snob, damn straight

4.08/5  rDev +4.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Lightly colored, a pale fawn hue. Filtered with such purity that, were you to fill the ocean with this stuff, you’d probably be able to see clear to the bottom. Trips to the beach would also be a lot more interesting.

A rich, sticky aroma, so pungent it’s almost vinegary. Fresh-cut grass, orange blossom and black pepper quickly give way to fruitier notes like passion fruit.

flavor is deceptively sweet. Malt provides a subtle caramel note and simple syrup-style sugars, but most of the saccharine flavors seem to come from the hops, as pine and mint are replaced with tangerine, pineapple and Juicyfruit gum. Very pungent -- you can feel the heaviness of the alcohol and the hop oils.

Medium-bodied, a little heavy with alcohol. You can feel the hop oils on the tongue. mild carbonation.

Too tasty and drinkable for its own good.
