I get almost a finger of boring, taupe head, over a surprisingly orangey/copper body. There seem to be very few bubbles in this beer, and no lace.

I smell a little malt up front, then the nose is dominated by juicy citrus and pine.

The flavor is much more bland than I expected for a "triple" IPA. It has a little bready malt up front. This is followed by pine, weak grapefruit and a little boozy warmth with a hint of banana. None of these flavors really "wow" though, they are just there.

The mouthfeel is medium bodied. Surprisingly easy going for the alcohol content and style.

*Edit* Bottle claims it is best by 03/21/14

A - Pours a nice hazy amber with a one-finger white head. Head dissipates leaving some nice lacing.

S - Sweet tropical fruits and some piney hops.

T - Lots of sweet orange and grapefruit. Big piney hops follow the sweetness producing a good amount of bitterness. Malt is very present and a good amount of balance.

M - Full bodied with medium carbonation. Sticky and dry mouthfeel.

O - Very tasty and unique Triple IPA.

A - Pours a semi-hazy amber/straw color with a 3 finger bright white head sitting atop. Recedes to a cap that leaves foamy patches of lace.

S - Resinous pine mixes with sweet fruit on the nose... Peach, orange, grapefruit rind. A faint bready malt base. Not the most pungent aroma, but a nice one.

T - Some sweet fruit, mostly orange and peach, and bready malts hit the palette first, but this beer takes some interesting turns. Middle of the mouth, herbal, earthy hops intertwine with slight citrus and a kind of white grape note that reminds me of Nelson (I'm assuming it's in here, as it is "New Zealand dry hopped"). The finish gives a nice kick of grapefruit bitterness mixed with a little pineapple juiciness, and moderate astringent alcohol. I really like the interplay of flavors here.

M - Sticky and medium-full bodied, with some moderate warming alcohol. Lingering bitterness and some pineapple sweetness.

O - This beer has been getting a lot of mixed reviews, but I concur with it's current rating of "very good". While the hop varietals used aren't my favorite, this is a damn tasty beer (way better than Palette Wrecker IMHO) with a surprising amount of depth.

Growler filled at Big Hops in San Antonio, TX.

A - Clear golden amber with 2 fingers of foamy white head.

S - Very sweet smelling with grapefruit, pine, and sugar.

T - This is super sweet. Instead of the typical grapefruit bitterness, it's super sweet grapefruit along with pine, caramel, and sugar. It's almost cloying.

M - Moderate body which is very sticky. Moderate carbonation as well. The grapefruit sticky sweetness lingers a while in the mouth.

O - I usually love west coast grapefruit and pine IPAs, but this one missed the mark for me. It was way too sweet and sticky with not enough balance.
