Poured from bottle into a tulip.

A: looks juicy. burnt tangerine. Great lacing. Overall not outstanding but certainly better than average.

S: a nice amount tropical fruits. Smells more hop forward than both devil dancer and hoptimum.

T: similar to the nose. You definitely feel the IBUs. Does have the malt sweetness to counter.

M: thick mouthfeel like i'd imagine. A good amount of carb makes this one easy to drink despite the amount of hopping.

One of the best beers I have tasted in a while. Up there with Founders Double Trouble and Lagunitas Sucks. Nice yellow straw color, very little head, viscous full mouth feel, in your face hops I am guessing simcoe or galaxy. Very satisfying and delicious . Going out tomorrow to buy more.

The beer had a clear body, golden amber color, and a one finger thick head. The carbonation looked gentle, and was comprised of some very fine bubbles. The smell of the beer was quite a bit milder than what I expected a Triple IPA to be. I could detect grapefruit and hay, and some pine. The taste was much hoppier than the smell, with a grapefruit laden, tongue tingling,hop bitterness. The alcohol was very well hidden, and the beer felt nowhere near 10% ABV. The body was medium dense, but much lighter than a typical beer of this strength, and the finish was herbal and long. This was a great find for a hophead like me.

On Tap at the New England Tap house Grille.
Poured in front of me this beer fills the glass with a slightly hazy deep straw light golden color liquid with a smallish off white head that shows moderate retention. Huge hoppy aroma with a bitter green onion, pine resin, pithy citrus, and a touch of licorice. Malt, yeah maybe there is, but with the hops and alcohol I can't find any in the nose. the flavor has a light bready malt in there but its mostly obscured with pine resin licorice citrus and alcohol. Light to medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a slick resinous mouthfeel. Nice double ipa but for me the alcohol was a bit too present, sometimes harsh, and distracted me from totally enjoying this beer.

Bottle says best by 02/18/14, so I imagine this is fairly fresh. Poured into a snifter, with a very thin layer of grey head that dissipates rather quickly, leaving an even thinner ring around the glass. No lacing. The color is translucent golden/orange. It looks crisp. Typical trip. ipa aromas of heavy hops and malt are prominent: sticky pine, with a slight hint of mint, which is super interesting. The flavor profile is only slightly reminiscent of your typical trip ipa: Green Bullet is not nearly as sweat, which I tend to appreciate about this beer. It is sticky hoppy with some malt in the background, but mostly this is enjoyably hoppy, with pine and citrus as well. It almost has a pulpy feel to it. It's crisp, but smooth, and I'd say rather drinkable for a trip IPA. I like it. Overall good beer, one I'd grab again given the chance. It's more like a strong double IPA than your common triple. Less sweet too, which is a good thing. Cheers.

3.9/5  rDev -0.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Serving glass: Poured from bottle into Imperial Pint.

Appearance: Clear amber with initial decent head that quickly recedes to a thin line.

Smell: Some citrus and sweet malts. Much more subtle than expected for a dry hopped beer, but the alcohol is apparent.

Taste: Quite citrusy over an almost Barleywine malt body of caramel and sweet toffee. Somewhat dank with some other fruity notes, but I can't tell if it is from the hops or malts. Finish is bitter but much of it is hidden by the alcohol. Lots of pine and spice on the finish.

Feel: Fairly full body with carbonation in check. Dry finish, but a little too boozy.

Overall: Despite noticing the alcohol, this is very easy to drink. Overall, there is not quite enough complexity to the hops for this to be a great DIPA, and there is not quite enough complexity to the malts for this to be a great Barleywine. However, the subtle yet bold mixture mostly works, and this is a very good, albeit not outstanding, choice for a high alcohol hop fix.
