Had this on cask at the 2010 Firkin Festival.
This poured a cloudy red mahogany.
It smelled of juicy mango, passion fruit, fresh pine forest and grass.
It tasted sweet. It was not bitter at all! Well, it had a slightly bitter grapefruit skin ending but it was super fresh fruity tasting with a touch, a slight hair, of astringency. BUT mmmm delicious!
It had a good mouthfeel, good carbonation and good drinkability.

A: When poured from the growler, it had a one finger white head over a golden orange body.
S: One of the better noses that I've had on an IPA. Citrus, resin, and pine are dominate here with subtle sweetness from the grains.
T: Equally hoppy and sweet. The hops are citrus predominately with subtle tones of pine. The malt bill is very sweet with an almost honey/caramel flavor to it.
M: Very heavy and perfectly carbonated.
O: Amazing beer. This is a must have.

Ah, the triple ipa, when whiteknuckle isn't enough, give 'em some brass knuckle, a viscious orange beer, thick like hopsickle or devil dancer. Aroma is pretty massive, citrus hops and alcohol, pretty intense.
Intense accurately encapsulates this beer. Intense huge, sticky, thick, syrupy beer gorged with what seems like it might be Summit hops and alcohol, the grassy sweet garlic and onion is a cool development.
Sweet at times, but thankfully there's so much hops and substantial bitterness that the sweetness never approaches chore territory, everything is balancing ever so precariously it seems, if this beer got a little older and sweeter, it could become a mess pretty easy it would seem, but fresh, on tap like it was at the Bistro, well, that is a monstrous triple ipa my friends, hop heads, seek it out.

On tap in sample size at the 2011 Bistro DIPA Fest. Pours a deep clear amber color with a lasting, sticky tan head. Aroma is crystal and caramel malts with some grapefruit and other citrus. Flavor is caramel and candied citrus. Bitterness is present but lacking in intensity, and the body is rather syrupy. Doesn't live up to its younger brother White Knuckle.
