Beautifully balanced triple with a gorgeous lace. Pleasant nose and mouthfeel.

32oz growler filled at Heinen's in Mentor, Ohio

Growler poured into a tulip. Pours golden with nice clarity and transparency; white head that fades leaving great retention and nice lacing. The aromas have some citrus notes along with a touch of alcohol. Some malts in the mix. Overall the aromas seem subtle for such a big beer. The flavors are very bold. Lots of citrus. Lots of fresh pine needles and pine resin. Grapefruit is there. Solid malt backbone, but the hop bitterness still shines. Very sticky and resinous. Bittersweet, but not too sweet. Some soap. Some alcohol notes, but it's not boozy. Finishes warm and slightly spicy. Mouthfeel is nice. It's full-bodied with active carbonation, but it's not thick. It's "thin" and slick. This makes for a nice sipper.

I suppose this isn't my favorite hoppy brew from Jackie O's, who I think make great hoppy beers. It's not really my favorite "Triple IPA" that I've ever had either. This is just a "no holds barred" type of brew. It's not bad at all though.

On draft, fresh for a Jackie O's tap takeover and bottle sale.

Surprisingly bright yellow crisp and clear for a "triple" IPA. Bit of a head, nothing overboard.

Now, this is going to sound really weird. I get aromas of olive, feet, garlic, cereal. I swear to you, I am not trying to be sarcastic or extreme, in any way.

Taste is orange peel and dankness. This is definitely a high IBU IPA, but not offensively bitter as I expected.

Overall this isn't bad, potentially better than some of their other regular IPAs.

Pours a honey Amber color. Has a resiny hop and citrus aroma. Flavor is crips bitter hops with a touch of citrus peel. Has a balanced finish. Overall solid but a little too bitter for me.

Big. Hell that doesn't describe it. Huge is closer. It's an onslaught of all things DIPA. maybe not on par with devil dancer but definitely worth a try if you're into huge boozy ipas.

Pours out a very hazy golden/orange.

Aroma starts off very tropical with pineapple and mango followed by orange, pine, resin and a nice dankness.

Taste is also very bright and almost juicy tasting with tropical fruit that's complimented by dank, piney, hop notes too.

Medium bodied, crisp, clean and alcohol is pretty damn well hidden. Awesome beer!
