Pours a deep amber, very clear with heavy lacing. Nose is resinous with sweet malts backing things up. Heavy pine, grapefruit, and a bit of caramel. Taste is heavily hopped, lots of bitterness with a solid malty backbone. The bitterness is cut out nicely by the malt backbone. Mouthfeel is heavy and lightly carbonated. Overall, this is a resin pine bomb with lots of sweetness. Not my favorite but very good.

A: This poured a nearly clear gold with a bit of white head.
S: It smelled like grassy and dank herbal hops, with some apricot and pine.
T: It tasted like bold apricot and pine and grassy hops, with some sweet honey and bitter herbal hops. It had a clean bitter aftertaste.
M: It was somewhat thick with moderate carbonation. Decent body.
D: This wasn't as huge as the triple IPA name would make you think, but it was a solid double IPA using three unique hops. The scent and taste were great, although the body was somewhat weak. The finish was clean with well hidden alcohol, and the bitterness really wasn't very harsh. So it was pretty easy to drink. Nice brew.

This is a huge beer that you get amazingly used to very quickly. That's dangerous - you could drink two or three, and then you will not feel alert enough to pour the fourth.

It looks great, with a slightly darker orange IPA color. The head is moderate. The aroma is really outstanding. Beautiful. The taste opens with a ton of things going on - all kinds of malt and hops.

The aftertaste is bitter, but really nicely so, and you quickly become used to it, and numb to the big booze content. Dangerous brew. Put the car keys away.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a Dogfish IPA glass.

A: Dark golden hue. Pours a 3 finger, foamy, bone white head. Settles very slowly leaving dry, uneven peaks and valleys, and sticky residue behind. Thick, persistent, spider web lacing. Head never fully dissipates.

S: Hoppy, sweet pine resin.

T: Punchy, piney hops. Pecan shell. Just a hint acidic citrus.

M: Thick and syrupy body. Light pungency hangs briefly on the palate, and fades slowly; priming you for the next sip.

D: Hoppy character will dictate a sipping experience.

Atmosphere is really great. Dark hue, giant persistent and inconsistent head, tons of lacing. Nose is sweet and hoppy. Hops are not overly crisp, but more short and stout; with a little bitterness and citric acid. Syrupy and thick with a fleeting aftertaste. Overall, this is a really good quaff.
