Very fine triple IPA (although I’m not quite sure what that means since it is classified as an imperial IPA). This is a new brewery to me, one that I haven’t experienced yet. Pours a very light amber-golden color with lots of foaming white head and a little spotty lingering lacing that looked fantastic. Smells mainly of grapefruit, pineapple, orange and lemon hops. But there’s a stronger dankness that is in the forefront, and it is definitely very fresh and ripe. The taste follows the nose, in addition to nice notes of malt, caramel, bread and vanilla. Smooth, clean, slightly thick mouthfeel with a little stickiness. Good carbonation. The beer mellowed out somewhat as it warmed up. The high ABV was well hidden. A very enjoyable offering.

A 22 fl. oz. bomber, bottled on 13th July 2018. Poured into a Lost Abbey teku glass.

Appearance: A clear golden orange colour with an almost three finger white head that had good retention and left lots of nice sticky lacing.

Aroma: Citrusy, grapefruit zest, orange rind, pineapple, dank, pine and a very light floral.

Taste: A mix of light sweet and bitter, dank, pine, citrus rind, grapefruit pith, a touch of alcohol followed by a lasting bitter finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.

Overall: I’m not a huge fan of Triple IPAs, but this was not bad at all. Nice aromas were complimented with some good flavours, although the booze, which does creep in unsurprisingly, took it down a notch or two for me.

Clear amber color. Modest head. Strong aroma, piney, reminiscent of gasoline. Pinene + heptanes? The first burst of slightly syrupy sweet and bitter flavor lingers seemingly forever, well, at least until one takes the next sip. Not the balanced brew I tend to favor but this one is a big winner in my book. More than just an over-hopped IPA.

Very smooth, especially for a 3IPA. Similar to PTY

This is my favorite beer. High in alcohol but with a nice citrus aftertaste. So refreshing!!

Pours a dark amber with a white head. The nose is full of floral hop notes and tropical fruits including orange, pineapple and grapefruit. Tastes of dank hops, luscious tropical fruits, sticky pine and floral notes. I love the combination of the tropical aromas and flavors with the massive punch of bitterness and sticky hop character. Nice warming, packs a punch.

This had me at the smell. As soon as I popped the cap, I knew this was the gonna be a good one. Perfectly bitter but oh so smooth at the same time. DANK for sure. I’ve got a new favorite.

Poured from a bomber bottle into a snifter.

L - Straw to light golden color; hazy. White head is thick, rocky and persistent. Carbonation The haziness and the orange tinge of the beer remind me more of a Belgian Gran Cru than an IPA, but it is an attractive beer.

S - Aroma is a clean, bracing hit of hops, reminiscent of orange citrus, pine and tropical fruit, There is some bready malt in the background, but at a much lower level.

T - On the tongue is a perfect balance of sweet, warm, grainy malt, and orange juice/pine hops. Again, all is clean and fresh. Delicious.

F - Medium, verging on heavy body. Intensely strong hops bitterness. Alcohol has some heat, but it blends nicely with the hops sting. Full, slightly prickly carbonation.

O - This is a balanced, fresh, clean and delicious Imperial IPA (triple? double? who cares.). It's a big beer that will knock your block off, especially at the bomber size, but it is a pleasant ride.

Really great. Dank nose. Heavy mouth. Great hoppy flavor that opens up wide post swallow.

Pours clear gold without much head.

Aroma is citrus and dank pine.

Taste is a pretty nice hop and citrus balance with a bitterness kick so there's no mistaking that this is triple IPA.

Still, extremely smooth for the high ABV. These are a couple of my favorite hops, and they're really kicked into high gear here.

Yet another delicious Knee Deep brew.

On tap. Pours a pretty golden color with a fingernail head that lingers and leaves minimal lacing. Great nose with a burst of dank and pine hops. Taste is a bitter but not painfully bitter hop bomb with multiple layers of hops. Medium body and medium-high carbonation.
As smooth and drinkable as triple IPA's come. The bitterness carries throughout without putting off the super smooth balance of the hops and some malt backbone. The alcohol is hidden super well, and paired with the smoothness of it, makes the beer really dangerous in the best possible way.
