look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Appearance - Poured 12 oz bottle into snifter --Reddish orange with white 2cm head

Smell - pine, booze, a bit of citrus

Mouthfeel - Astringent, slightly bigger body than your typical IPA, medium carb

Taste - PUNCH YOU IN THE MOUTH bitter, but does have a bit of malty sweetness to balance it a bit. After the initial bitterness settles into the sweetness you can actually taste a bit of citrus before a crazy bitter finish that lingers for a while!

Overall - Interesting brew, I've always wanted to try a "Triple IPA" so had to get a couple bottles of this. I think I'll let the other one sit for a while to see how it settles down. Unless it becomes amazing after some aging, I don't see myself shelling out $6 a bottle for this next year.
