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.

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.

Impressive, Triple IPAs are not typically what I seek out because most tend to be unbalanced and don't have the same hop flavor and aroma that most stellar breweries bring to the table with their doubles.

Judge is an extremely balanced triple IPA! !

Fantastic IIIPA. Alcohol well hidden considering its 11.2%. Like all pale ales, best when fresh. Highly recommend.
