Serving: 22 ounce bomber poured into a Belgian tulip glass

Appearance: Pours a golden orange color with tons of tiny bubbles in the head, the head is white, disappears quickly, lots of lacing on the glass as I enjoy this brew.

Aroma: Big citrus on the nose, not getting any alcohol for an 11% beer, lovely aroma, I would say this is one of the best smelling IPAs I have ever smelled, great aroma.

Taste: Just like the nose, big citrus flavors, some bitterness, slight sweet malts on the backend, I am getting no alcohol burn at all. Very smooth flavor.

Mouthfeel: Medium mouthfeel, dry finish on the palate, nothing impressive with this, not a juicy IPA.

Overall: This beer is really good, it's a triple IPA and I am not getting an overwhelming bitterness or alcohol on the flavor. My only beef with this beer is that once it warms up, it loses a lot of the citrus aromas and flavors, it got flat later on. One caveat is that this is my first IIIPA, so I really don't know what to expect. I have tried a few IIPAs and I have found them to be sweet and malty. I didn't get any sweet and malty favors from this beer. It's worth a try.

Draft at local craft beer spot.
Light golden in color with little head.
Floral notes with alcohol presence in nose. Citrus tones.
Very drinkable for an iiipa.
As expected, has a hop forward flavor and an alcohol finish. Surprisingly malty for an IIPA, but certainly strong enough to suit the class of beer. Alcohol is the main aftertaste but still drinkable.
