01/2017 - this is a superb triple IPA, but it's not Notorious level. It's surprisingly clean and refreshing for what it is. There's barely any heat present throughout the ale. So much citrus, but it's full of pineapple, guava, & a wee bit of coconut; its juicy like its NE counterparts, but significantly more hoppy; bitter, dry finish.

2018 release. On tap at Meridian Pint for pre-SAVOR. The anniversary party was about a month ago, so I’m guessing the keg is about a month old.

A: Pours glowing orange, hazy, with a thick cap of dense white head and pretty lacing.

S: Fairly faint overall. Light citrus and floral notes, a touch of mango, and mild grainy malt.

T: Juicy clementine, loads of dried flowers, honey, a bit of mango flesh, finishing with firm, medium-light, well integrated bitterness and light sweetness. Leans more toward the floral than citrus or tropical.

M: Chewy full body, medium alcohol warmth, with medium sharp carbonation to cut through the rich texture.

O: Big, rich beer that’s flavorful and dry enough to be drinkable. The alcohol is definitely noticeable but not a super limiting factor.

this is as good as they say it is. i have been seeking it out for years, and finally i got lucky enough to have my boy back east ship one out fresh, and it travelled just fine, what a beer this is! there is a definite cloudiness to this, pale and muted in luster, no visible chunks or anything, but its east coast before that was cool. good head and creamy lace as i drink it down. the aroma is next level, you would swear there is navel oranges or tangerines in here, such a sunny citrus profile to these hops, i dont know which varietals are in here, but if its something thats been around awhile like citra i will be even more impressed because nobody else can get this kind of smell and taste from it. subtle white grape, vanilla bean, new oak, lots of nuance for an ipa type, its unreal and i salivate over it for awhile before i start sipping. first thing that hits me is a huge burst of citrus right in the middle of it, oranges and cream, serious melted creamsicle in the glass, almost sweet for a moment but its oily hops, why can more breweries not do with hops what this beer does? it hits me so hard, like its superiority to what just about everyone else is doing in the style is so obvious after just one sip. i also cant believe how well hidden the alcohol is, this drinks not boozy at all, and while its substantial and complex for sure, its not slow or heavy. juicy like few others, starchy on the malt side but dry, and with enough carbonation to keep this feeling fresh and active. as good as it gets in the style for me, lucky to have well connected friends! what a treat this is!

On tap into a snifter. A very hazy golden color with a thick white head. Nice lacing. Dank pineapple and citrus on the nose. The taste was close with a resinous pineapple and citrus quality and a dry bready malt presence. Soft bitterness that built to the finish and was prominent. ABV well hidden. Overall a fantastic beer.

Opaque dark orange, almost brown, with a large beige foam that settles to a central souffle-like lump leaving tons of coral like lace all over the glass.

This has a super smooth, delectable and dessert like aroma of dank pineapple, vanilla orange cream, and shortbread.

Taste is like a tangy piña colada with a punch of spiced pine and orange cake. Flavors of pineapple, orange, spicy and peppery cannabis are met by cake with some vanilla cream cheese frosting that's quickly cut by a bitter, piney swallow.

A crisp and tingly semi-thick fizz runs through a medium body with a chewy dry finish.

This beer really comes at you and doesn't quit--it's delicious without being boozy in any way, and it almost knocked me on my ass because of it. I really wasn't expecting such a punch! This is possibly the best high ABV IPA I've ever had.
