A - Pours a crystal clear copper color riddled with tiny floaties, a nice white layer of foam that goes down after the pour but never goes away.
S - Spicy tropical citrus and a caramel backbone. The aroma isn't as intense as I was expecting which is a little disappointing for a big hopped up beer like this.
T - A slight amount of caramel base comes out at the beginning before it's totally swallowed up by hops and booziness. Nice spicy tropical fruit bitterness in the form of grapefruit rind some orange, and pine bitterness round out the beer. The ABV is not at all shy in this beer and creates a considerable amount of warming on the way down the hatch.
M - Medium to full medium body.
O - Nicely done but incredibly boozy.

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.
