12oz bottle in a pint glass.

A- Pours a blood red amber copper color. Big tan head leaves nice lacing. Not easy to see through.

S- Sweet malt, alcohol, minimal hops.

T- A boatload of sugary boozy malts. There is some citrus hop flavor but it can get lost in this big beer.

M- Syrupy with a lingering hop tang. Sweet alcohol. Full.

O- It's a big booze bomb. For me, that suppresses the flavor and the effects of the hops. Oh, well.

This tripple goes down smooth but packs a punch. The appearance is amber with a ruby tint, the smell reminds of chemicals and cardboard. Taste has notes of caramel, hops, alcohol, some more alcohol, full malty sweet body. THe mouth-feel is a little weak as the growler has set for over 96 hours since original opening. I am not dissapointed in this beer, but would not go out of my way for another.

An extra from a trade with DocHo11idaze. Bottled 5/15/2014. Poured into a pint mason jar glass.

A - Pours a deep translucent brown amber with only a thin collar of foam and loose spots of lacing.

S - Boozy, piney, malty, funky, and a bit musty. Smells like a moderately aged 90min , which could be good or bad...

T - Probably the maltiest IPA I've had. In stark contrast to fresh flower and pine bombs like Heady and Pliny, this is a dank, oily, syrupy, earthy sort of brew with a subtle yet long-lasting bitterness. It's sweet, dirty, and funky.

M - Pretty heavy and oily on the tongue. Barely elevated by its carbonation. This is a weighty brew.

Overall - At 12% ABV, this one is quite boozy and goes right to the head, so be careful with it! If you're used to the bright, bitter, flowery kinds of IPA's, I definitely recommend you seek this one out to get a taste of the dank side.
