Consumed on draft July 6th at West 4th and Jane, Santa Monica.

Beer is proper-looking - medium yellow, respectable off-white head. It's the aroma that first raises an eyebrow: pine sap and resin and pepper and dank. This may be the most intense hop aroma I have ever gotten off a beer.

Flavor is similar - sharp and strong and massively hoppy with only a hint of malt to balance and significant though not disagreeable bitterness. This beer is huge.

Medium-bodied, properly carbonated. Not as sticky or thick or resiny as expected. No real alcohol presence.

This was a pleasant surprise!

On tap at the LA Beer Week Kickoff Festival held at Exposition Park in Los Angeles, CA.

Pours a hazy golden-orange with a foamy tan head that settles to a small cap on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of citrus zest, earth, onion, garlic, and herbal hop aromas. Taste is much the same with citrus zest, grapefruit juice, onion, and garlic flavors on the finish. There is a medium amount of hop bitterness and an alcohol kick on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and sticky mouthfeel. Overall, this is a very good beer with onion and garlic hop qualities I usually don't like, but they work well with the other hop characteristics here.

Serving type: on tap.

Had this on 2015-06-29 in Concord, CA at The Hop Grenade

clear gold with a short white head. Big dank and floral. Tropical fruit, apricot, dank buds, onion, earthy spice, pepper and pretty decent bitterness. Some alcohol flavor and burn. Quite dry.

Let me start out by saying that I love Mosaic hops, a lot, so I naturally enjoyed this. The smell is of fresh hops, the taste however didn't show me as much as I wanted. For being a triple IPA, a huge hop presence is missing in the taste. You definitely cannot taste the 12.3%, not hot at all.
