Poured from a 12oz bottle into a stemmed tulip glass.
Best Before: 2014/02/28; Poured: 2013/10/17
A: Hazy copper in color pouring to 1-2 fingers of off-white head that is heavy, creamy and very persistent, settles to a sudsy collar and leaves lots of lacing.
S: Lots of sweet malts and a big juicy hop nose, pineapple and citrus, some grassiness, a bit of spiciness.
T: Heavy malt flavor, syrupy and rich; even with a massive bittering hop profile necessary to balance the grains needed to achieve 10%, this beer is still a malt forward IPA (which I guess is to be expected for a TIPA). Some tropical fruits and a bit of pithy citrus. The New Zealand hops (Nelson Sauvin?) really come through and leave a pronounced grassy almost chardonnay flavor.
M: Medium high body and medium low carbonation; heavy, syrup, cloying.
O: Taste is obviously subjective, but the Nelson Sauvin hops are not my favorite. Having said that, this is a big delicious IPA with a massive grain bill and the IBU’s to match.

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.
