Notes/Commercial Description:
This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

GLUTTONY Triple IPA overindulges the palate with profound malt, powerful hops and abundant body. Its deep decadent golden orange color presents an appetizing invitation for extravagant enjoyment. Its aroma entices with citrus, pine and alcohol while the flavor provides a smorgasbord of sweet malt, fresh tangerine/grapefruit and a resinous hop character that lingers well beyond the finish.

200 IBU

Pours a dark orange color, a bit cloudy, and with a nice head. Good looking beer!

Aromas are strong... resin, pine, and a hint of alcohol are noted. This is a great smelling beer.

Flavor is crisp and dry up front, then the taste is thick and full bodied. Upon the first sip you notice the dry quality, then the malts kick in with a firm and sturdy slightly sweet and creamy backbone. The beer finishes with a resin and pine like hop kick. Excellent tasting beer!

Mouthfeel is top notch. The thick and roundness of this beer is well done.

Drinkability is way up there. This is easily one of the best DIPAs I have ever tasted. Well done Midnight Sun! I am impressed! Too bad this beer wasn't more widely distributed, it is a winner.

Many thanks to beersabound for sending me this one.

Pours clear copper with a slight chill haze. A dense, white head built to a full two inches and remained for several minutes. The high krauesen of foam slowly receded to a partial skim coat on the surface, revealing exaggerated strings of lacy froth.
Aromatics are floral and pungent. Tangerines and peaches make thier presense known, as well as spruce oil-laced grapefruit. A promise of alcohol comes forward under the tropical resins, and a light maltiness follows through.
The mouthfeel is crisp, drying, and resinous. Sticky and sappy.
The pallet is dominated by aggresive hopping. The bitterness is as subtle as a buzzsaw on the tongue, but does not cross into harsh territory. Loads of hopping in the flavor of the brew also. Heavy on the grapefruit, with the peach/ pear/ orange character in the background. Maltiness is at a minimum, but still adding a decent backbone to the weight of the hops.
Finishes with an extremely lingering crisp dryness, grapefruit pith, warming alcohols and a tongue-scraping bitterness.
A huge IIPA from Midnight Sun, and damn fresh.
Big thanks to Timmcd64 for hooking me up, once again!

This is the first of the Seven Deadly Sins series. It's labeled as a Triple IPA and that is appropriate. It's got a gold color with an amber center and a tight stark white head that leaves a thick lace as it recedes. The aroma is strong with a pine, grapefruit, citrus, and some alcohol. The brewery write up said the bittering and flavoring hops were the same and it was simcoe, amarillo and another one I don't remember. The flavor lasts forever with enough malt sweetness to get some pineapple type goodness from it. When I lick my lips a while after drinking it its still very sweet and hoppy. The bitterness is strong (200 IBUs), resinous, delightful, and inudates your mouth. Share a bottle with a friend and have it when you are done tasting other beers.
