This poured an amber gold in color. Right away I found an orangish aroma, like a sweet squeezed orange, peel and pith included. The flavor is surprisingly sweet as well, with a juicy orange and peel flavor dominant. It’s not as bitter as I had expected, balanced with some nice caramel notes on the malt, and finishing with a somewhat alkaline note to it.

Had this on tap at a festival...but stopped by the brewery and picked up a growler....and talked to Rodger. Cool dude. Two days old....

Pours a relatively clear amber ale with a frothy one finger off-white head. Major sticky lacing.

The aroma is big on the pineapple, passion fruit, sweet malt, sticky-sweet candy, and pear. Yum.

The taste is on the sweeter side with a bit of hops on the swallow and another rush of sweetness on the aftertaste. Tangy. That's the word that keeps coming to mind. Some pine.

Mouthfeel is decent.

Overall this a definite sweet Triple IPA. The hops are there, but the sweetness is on display big time. Not that there's anything wrong with that.
