Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a stemmed glass.

The color is a hazy orange/amber with some foamy off white head and some nice lacing that leaves a film on the glass.

The smell is very hoppy with some citrus and floral hop flavors jumping out at the nose. A spicy mix of flavors await.

The taste is pretty mellow compared to the wallop expected from this triple IPA. The hop effect seems to come on rather quietly as you sip. Just the right amount of a warming, soothing feel mixed with the great hoppy bitterness makes this beer a nice surprise for it's quiet hop flavor that does bot pronounce itself too loudly.

The feel is quite light is just right for a hoppy monster. Just the right amount of hops and get about the night amount of funk.
