Reviewed from notes:
22of bottle purchased from the release yesterday. Poured into tulip.
A: Pours burnt amber with a dense but not as large as expected light tan head that faded into a greasy film. Not much lace. Disappointing head.
S: Extremely dank and resinous smelling with notes of weed, cat box, peach, pineapple, and orange sherbet.
T: Ultra greasy and hoppy. Crushingly hoppy and sweet with tropical fruit nectars hop resin and oil, citrus juice, pineapple, and dank weed, lemon pith, yard trimmings, boozy finish, creamy orange aftertaste.
M: Crushingly bitter and strong, a sipper of a beer, hop oil is tingly and combines with the booze to make a thick and greasy mouthfeel and heavy body.
O: Heavy, greasy, oily, boozy, hop onslaught. Bitter as hell with a tingly hop oil mouth. Like sucking on a bouquet of hops. Very unbalanced and rough around the edges. Younger is so much more refined. This is a brutal onslaught but I couldn’t drink it all day every day like some other dipas.

22 oz bottle from the brewery. Pours a nice orange that is barely see through. The head dissipates really quickly and there is not a lot of lacing. The smell is sweet and citrusy. The taste is just like the smell with sweet malt and then lots of grapefruit and pineapple. The mouthfeel is thick with lots of hop resin and some booziness. Overall this is one of my favorite triple IPAs, a style I have a love/hate relationship with. Plus, the release party for this beer was a blast - highly recommended.
