Served on tap at Saraveza in Portland on 2/23/13.

A: Light orange with a soapy-looking head that retained for a bit. Nice lacing.

S: Possibly the best smelling beer I've ever tried. Bursting with tropical fruit. Pineapple, citrus, light grass. Smells like super fresh hops.

T: Follows the nose with juicy citrus hops. Grapefruit, pineapple, citrus, and enough of a malt bill to keep things balanced. Hops don't make you pucker as it finishes and leaves the palate feeling nice and clean. So fresh tasting.

M: Medium-heavy mouthfeel, but not syrupy or overwhelming. Alcohol is very, very subtle for a beer with this high of an abv. This might be more drinkable than it should be...

O: Lives up to the hype. Not sure if it was just this batch, but I was totally blown away. Please make more of this.

The best beer I've ever tasted. Had 10 oz. pour on tap at the growler cafe in Lebanon, OR 1/2/15. This is my fourth time tasting notorious over the past 3 years and each has been one of my most memorable moments tasting beer. The rest I cannot put into words. You have to try for yourself.

Taste: Malty, extremely hot. Overall: More of a unbalanced barley wine than an IPA.

Served in a 6oz snifter on tap.

This is probably the most aromatic IPA I have ever tried. As soon as the bar keep set it down, everyone up and down the bar could smell it. Fresh pine, citrus primary, herbaceous and dank as a secondary impression. A very rounded hop nose

Color is deep gold / orange with a white effervescent head, medium size bubbles. Lighter than what you would expect for a 12%

Taste is a hopsplosion. Basically more of the fully rounded hop nose with the addition the right amount of bitterning, not too much, but still plenty. Good overall citrus and malt balance. For a 12% not a lot of malt or sweetness.

Mouthfeel is creamy, smooth and sticky.

A very big beer overall, but still drinkable. Closest to Pliny the Younger. Highly recommend.
