Note: bottle date 5/4/15

This bottle was pushed to the back of the collection and just unearthed.
Pours a clear reddish amber with a billowy head that slowly fades. Lots of malt and caramel on the nose. Very flavorful, lots of caramel, malt, butterscotch, ends with a clean bitterness. Boozy, 12% abv is obvious. Thick and syrupy, carbonation is still great after 2.5 years!
Overall this is a great triple IPA, aged well imo.
