Best by 2/18/14 12 oz brown bottle.
A: Golden hue with a nice, white head that leaves plenty of lacing.
S: All kinds of hop aromas; pine, grapefruit, pineapple. Rather intoxicating mix.
T: Juicy hops all around, somewhat sturdied by a malt backbone.
M: Smooth with a bit alcohol burn. The aftertaste bitterness is rather overwhelming.
O: This gives the Imperial IPA a run for its money, but I'm personally more partially to the Summit hops in that one. Perhaps a tweaked recipe, just a bit more balance, can elevate this interesting beer to that level. Single hop using just Green Bullet?

Passed the best by date, only a few days, so not that fresh.
Pours hazy orange, one finger bubbly white head, gets thinner, really sticky.
Smell of pine, citrus, green grass, some tropical notes with pineapple mostly and faint caramel. Not extremely strong hoppiness, at least not as strong as i expected.
Taste definitely makes up for that. Sweet citrus in the front, with tangerines and sweet grapefruit, followed by nice tropical perffumey mango, pineapple and faint lychee. Pine and green leafiness is next and covers everything up, with a really bitter finish. Hops feel spicy and a tiny bit earthy too. Reading the label ("triple IPA") i expected a more aggressive bitterness, but it didn't really deliver. Sure, it's very bitter, but not necessarily rougher than other American (D)IPAs. Some caramel and toasted malts are hard to find during the taste, but become more apparent in the aftertaste.
Medium carbonation, light and easy to drink. The big abv is extremely well hidden.
I like the fact that, even if it's extremely hop-oriented (duh), there's a flavorful sweet fruity flash at the beginning of every sip, and after the bitter pine festival, in the aftertaste. From start to finish. Didn't live up to its aforementioned level of hops, but it was really good.
