This was presented as a Triple IPA when I was there. If Double IPA's are 8 or 9 per cent ABV, then I suppose at 10.20 ABV, this could be called a triple. The alchol strength was quite evident. The hop bitterness was not overwhelming but it was present enough to justify labeling this an IPA rather than just a barleywine or strong ale.

On tap at Moonshine. Pours golden with a short off white head. Aroma of hops, caramel malt, and orange peel. The beer has a hoppy flavor that is also slightly earthy. High alcohol to a fault. Nice bitter aftertaste. Overall a little out of balance for my taste.
