Poured from growler into Magnolia Strong Beer Month snifter

Slight off-white head that quickly dissipates. Beautiful sunshine daydream orange yellow color.

Smell is a hop lovers dream with ripe citrus, papaya, and durian.

Taste is fruity, spicy, bitter awesomeness. Gotta be at least 20% rye malt in this one. If I was blind tasting I'd say it was Hopocalypse black label or Simtra.

Perfect amount of carbonation and lingering oily residues - so nice.

Home run baby.

Draft @ Ale Arsenal on 1/9/15. Pours a yellow to amber color with 1 finger of head. Slight lacing. Aroma of pine, resin, citrus, and tropical fruits. Taste is quite dank with plenty of resinous goodness, but also nice balance with notes of citrus and tropical fruits with some malty character and alcohol present. Well balanced and not too boozy for a triple IPA. Solid and very drinkable.

Pours a bright orange with some amber notes, slightly off white head. Nose is all dank hops, big pine and tropical citrus notes as I have come to expect from Cellarmaker. Taste follows the nose with dank, resinous, hoppy, oily goodness coating the mouth. Mouth feel and malt backbone as expected for a triple IPA of this strength. Exceptionally smooth with no perceived boozyness. Right up there with Younger and Hopocalypse except anybody can just mozy into Cellarmaker and grab a goblet of this monster. The best triple IPA. No contest.

64oz growler poured into Duvel tulip. (Triple IPA) 10.8% abv.

A: Pours a slightly hazy marmalade-orange with a medium amount of fluffy, off-white head.

S: I can smell the citrus before I even open the growler. Intense aroma consisting of grapefruit, pineapple, mango, banana, and pine.

T: Resinous pine, grapefruit, orange zest, pineapple, and black pepper. Extreme hop-bomb. A decent amount of bitterness and alcohol is slightly perceptible.

M: Quite viscous, slick with moderate carbonation. Goes down with a slight alcohol burn.

O: A total hop-bomb, tons of resinous, citrusy flavor and a good spicyness to boot. For me it's a bit reminiscent of Hopslam.

S- 1L Growler poured in a pint glass

A- Pretty lively carbonation and a picture perfect golden orange.

S- Tropical fruit bomb! Huge hints of mango, citrus, pine and dank. No alcohol detected on the nose, which I'm surprised by given the ABV.

T- Lots of tropical fruits, very little alcohol sweet but with a bitter finish balancing it out.

M- Amazing drinkability for style.

O- This is one of the best triple IPAs out there and no 8 hour wait in line or truck stalking required!
