A: This poured an opaque gold with moderate white head.
S: It smelled like orange and grapefruit, with some green mango and resin and sugary malt.
T: It tasted like juicy citrus and sweet sugary malt, with some bitter resin. It had a clean bitter aftertaste with some alcohol warming.
M: It was thick with moderate carbonation. Great big body.
D: This was a great IPA with basic but delicious scent and taste. The body was solid, but the finish was hot, so it was better to sip. Nothing unique or amazing, but I thoroughly enjoyed this beer.

Bottled on 3/20/17.

A - Pours an orange copper color with minimal soapy white lacing.

S - Honey malt and booze with light caramel aroma and pine.

T - Caramel sweetness up front, piney bitterness on the back end, and an obnoxious level of booziness. Lots of alcohol effervescence.

M - Medium body with a very dry finish.

O - Will try another bottle that isn't five months old and revisit this review.

12oz bottle into a pint glass. bottled 3/20/17, so 3 1/2 months old.

Very cloudy apricot/peach colored body. Nice white head with very good lacing.

there is a faint aroma, but i found it difficult to put my finger on what it was. possibly malt?

Well, the label says its a triple IPA, but the hops must have faded a fair amount after 3 1/2 months in the bottle. There is still some bite, but sweet malt is the primary flavor.

Close to full on the mouth, a sweet wash on the finish with a slightly sour bitterness on the back of the tongue.

Overall, a faded drink, not unpleasant in any way, and still drinkable. But its clearly an DIPA where 3 1/2 months past it's bottling date is way too long, even considering the label touting its hopbombiness (Like that word?)
