Golden color, well carbonated, light foam, surprisingly light color for an 11.25% ABV beer. Thick mouthfeel. Great floral hop aroma for such a high gravity beer. I mostly get hints of fruit particularly citrus. Boozy in aroma and flavor (as expected from a such a high gravity beer) but still maintains a great balance of malt to hops.
This is a big beer and has all the characteristics of a big beer but also has a great hop aroma and taste that keeps up with these characteristics. I recommend it.

22oz poured with very little head, which dissipated quickly to a thin film. Color is a nice rich golden orange. Aroma is a smooth citrus, floral air. Mouth is a pin and citrus flavor. Big bold hop flavor with just a hint of mint. Flavor lingers for days. Very well balanced for a 10.1 % alcohol content. Definitely going to buy more!

Like one of the guys said already: Closest you can get it to Pliny the elder. Very nice aroma, beautiful dark copper color. You can taste this is real triple IPA but very smooth with pronounced resiny, citrusy and piney flavor. EXCELLENT beer !!!! Highly recommended if U can afford $11.95 per bottle !
