A: Darkish sunset orange with a bright white head, roughly 2 fingers. Head dissipates fairly quickly and leaves a nice cap throughout.

S: You can pretty much smell this one from across the room. Simcoe hops dominate the nose. Lots of super astringent notes, cat piss, pine, and a bit of tropical citrus and floral notes as well.

T: Citra hops a lot more detectable on the taste. Tons of tropical fruits, grapefruit, cantaloupe, lime, as well as big pine characteristics.

M: Mid-high carbonation, super crisp and refreshing. Very wet, but at the same time, very abrasive.

Overall this was excellent, may be my favorite IIPA on the market. I look forward to this being a year-round offering.

I didn't get to see the color of this beer because I was at a friend's house and he didn't really have any appropriate glassware for this beer (this explains the 1 rating on the appearance, but this isn't reflective of what I actually think of it). But hot damn, I was craving more hops than could be considered appropriate and this beer delivered. Even from the bottle this beer was EXPLODING with hop aroma. Notes of pine, citrus, and tropical fruit overloaded my nostrils. The beer tastes the same with a bit more malt than I expected, which makes sense for how big this beer is. Hop heads, this is the beer you're seeking.

L: Pours brilliant amber gold uner a 2” sudsy white foam cap that hugs the glass.
S: Dank, woody, citrus and tropical fruit aromas with noticeable alcohol.
T: Big malt flavors laced with caramel support a grassy, citrusy tropical fruit hop palate. Malt, hops and alcohol are all big but well balanced.
F: Medium full to full body, very soft medium carbonation. Warming.
O: The brewer classifies this as a tripel IPA and its big enough foer the title.
