3.98/5  rDev +1.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Appearance:
The beer pours some creamy white head that dissipates quite quickly. The beer itself is clear orange amber.

Smell:
A strong hop presence with a sweet malty backbone. The ops appear to be piney and grassy. The smell leans more towards the pine smell than the grassy, which is dominated by the pine smell.

Taste:
Hop bomb. The hops have a strong resin taste as well as a floral one with a slight alcohol aftertaste. The taste also has a sweet malt backbone that does not balance as it keeps the hops from being too overwhelming.

Mouthfeel:
Medium bodied but on the heavy side and smooth. Biting carbonation.

Overall:
A pretty decent TIPA (DIPA) but there are much better ones that I'll choose before coming back to this one. The hop intensity is definitely noticeable in this one but more hops does not a great beer make.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A - Pours a clear burnt orange with a fluffy white head with good lacing.

S - Floral, musty and dank, citrus rind.

T - Hop bomb, piney citrus, dank and resinous, finishes with a dry bitter aftertaste.

O - This is a sipper imperial IPA yet it is relatively easy to drink. This is solid, but I'd choose others in this category before coming back.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A: Slightly hazy orange-yellow in color. Forms a moderate sized white head. Decent retention. Moderate lacing.

S: Aroma is surprisingly mild, but pleasant none-the-less. Floral notes mix with light citrus notes and a sugar-cookie background.

T: Taste is also surprisingly mild. Light pale malt backbone. Citrus, grapefruit, and citrus pith. Mild pine resin quality. Maybe some faint notes of tropical fruit. Finish is rather quick.

M: Medium bodied. Medium carbonation. Rather restrained bitterness. Alcoholic heat on the finish.

O: While I am an admitted hop-head and DIPA lover, I've never been much of a fan of the so-called Triple IPA category, though it is more so because the term simply doesn't mean anything than because I don't like over-hopped, highly alcoholic beers. Now, with that said, this beer is clearly nothing more than a DIPA, and a restrained one at that. The flavors are clean and pleasant, but aside from the alcohol, this beer really isn't packing much of a punch.

Bomber from Tipples to my tulip glass. Pours a dark gold almost bronze color, clear, with a nice white one finger head. Definite pine on the aroma, with some nice floral citrus aromatics. Dank for sure. Malt profile provides some additional sweet on the smell. Big bitter pine on this one, but with a nice sweetness from the malt bill. Bitter is up front and all the way down the gullet. Big and slick mouthfeel but plenty of carbonation. Pretty big beer here with the high ABV. Solid DIPA, though heavier than I wanted today.

22os for $8

A: Deep orange amber with a cream head. Good carbonation and lots of lacing on this one.

S: Quite a wallop! Can smell it from a couple of feet away! Lots of citrus, pine and sweet malt! Super pungent deep complex smell! Almost feels like it is wetting your nostrils!

T: Hop bomb! Getting blasted with a ton of pine hops up front, grapefruit, orange, lime, lemon, slight mint, tangerine, and almost no malt! Pure hop destruction!

M: Heavy bodied and almost chewy! Resinous and sticky! Fights its way down and coats the whole mouth! Alcohol is there but not over powering for 10.1%! This is a palate wrecker! Hops linger on the tongue long after each sip!

O: Really good IIIPA! Not very balanced but i feel like that was the point. I'm actually really impressed by how close they got to an unbalanced mess and came away with a good brew! People have been trying to compare it to RuinTen but it truly is it's own beast!

Pours a mostly clear medium orange with one finger thick khaki colored heady with spotty lacing. Smell: pine, floral, nectarine, notes of earth and honey. Taste: pineapple, resinous, sugared citrus, nectarine and white grape juice, biscuit. Low delicate carbonation. Feel is syrupy, almost chewy. Intense.
