had this on tap at the mule bar in Winooski VT.

pours an almost clear golden color, thin band of white head leaves some nice lacing.

somewhat mild aromas - pine, dankness, sweet malts, citrus peel, grapefruit, hint of ripe fruits. palate follows nicely, but is somewhat dominated by sweet and syrupy malts and booze. the booze is not astringent or bothersome, but definitely comes through as expected at this abv. caramel and honey malts play nicely with grapefruit, pine, floral qualities, orange, hint of ripe tropical fruits including mango and maybe a touch of pineapple. piney bitterness on the finish is well balanced by the malt sweetness. mouthfeel is medium bodied and syrupy... not on par with the pillowy NE ipas that I adore. overall its remarkably drinkable for the abv, and is not excessively boozy in any way. however the balance tips towards malty sweetness and alcohol over the fruity hops, and having enjoyed more fruit forward triple IPAs such as Sunshine & Peril, this isnt one I would necessarily seek out. still enjoyable and interesting to try!

Had this on tap on 12/3 at Growler Guys in Portland.

A: Pours a golden orange color with minimal white head. Very small amounts of thin white lacing throughout.

S: Big fruity/citrusy aromas of pineapple, orange, and guava. Milder notes of dank, piney, and earthy hops.

T: Taste matches aromas well. Super juicy with fruity notes of pineapple, mango, peach, papaya, guava, orange, and tangerine followed by a very slight piney, hoppy bitterness.

F: Light to medium bodied, super smooth, with a small to moderate amount of carbonation.

O: Overall, this is a great TIPA. Super fruity, but not overly sweet. Very drinkable, ABV is almost entirely hidden and for 11.5-12% that is unreal. Would love to try this stuff fresh from the lines. Would definitely seek this out again.

This beer is pretty damn difficult to distinguish between it and PTY. Seriously. For years now I've been just skipping the big line at the DIPA fest for PTY and just getting Notorious with no line, the beers are almost indistinguishable.

Has a pretty color that is a mixture of both orange and gold, comes with a 1/3" head.

Aroma is delightful. All that hop noise under the nose, usual descriptors of awesomeness, pick whatever tropical, stone and citrus fruits you want, mix in those pine/green/dank descriptors on top of it.

Taste, wow, hop bursting, not overly aggressive ibu number, mouth feel that hides all the alcohol, super dry finish, like damn this is light on its feet but so damn huge.

There are so many 10+% double and triple ipas these days, PTY no doubt was the innovator, but there are some damn good substitute goods out there (Notorious, Ephraim, Waldo etc. . . ) it really makes waiting in line seem dumb when you're this far down the rabbit hole.
