Draught: Somewhat orangish darker golden color. There was a small white head on it. Good nose! Lots of hops! Some sweetness, citrus, pine, earthy. The taste is quite good. Some sweet malts, and a lot of hops. Pine, earthy, citrus. A really good TIPA!

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.

The brew is good but it's really not my style. A little thick, this brew is kinda a modified sipper in a sense. ABV is detectable if it warms.

Bottom Line: Good offering.

Vibrant reddish orange, crystal clear, and a big fluffy white head with solid retention and lacing.

They're not kidding when they say dank. Sticky icky. Bubble gum. Tutti fruity. It has a very sugary smell.

It explodes with dank and citrus hops, completely demolishing and semblance of malt, which is a little toasty. Fusel spice in the back end.

Big mouthfeel. Hot and dry.

This one has no shame in its hop-forwardness. One of the hoppiest beers out there.

- Spiegelau ipa glass. Dated 03/02/15. Consumed 05/02/15. 11.25% 131 ibus.

A: Pristine clarity with a bright orange coloring reveals a quickly paced rush of macro-effervesce filling the vessel. Off white head is frumpy textured, like mashed potatoes, rising 1.5 inches high with a resilient showing. High lace coverage graces the glass.

S: Fresh wet sugary grapefruit on the nose along with sweet pine and a pleasing touch of semi-dry tropical fruitiness against a softly toasty bread backing. Hints of straw and toasted citrus peel dryness occur on the finish while the aromatic duration remained pleasantly viable throughout for several plus minutes.

T: Flowery, semi-dry citrus and pine upfront with a smooth, calming, but high rate of bitterness sits against a softly toasted grain backing and toasted citrus peel, bittering pine with a dry, sweet malt fade. Background nuances of semi-dry tropical fruit meets a lightly toasted malt and citrus finish.

M: Good carbonation, malty depth, but exceptionally smooth, gently dry citrus hop warmth that feels more like a 6-7% rather an 11.25%.

O: Overall amazingly well balance of hops and malts as well alcohol which is considerably tame and drinks exceptionally smooth and much lighter then its abv claims. Smooth drinking experience with no rough edges, just silky going down gets props for being a hop monster that drinks like an easy sunday afternoon session. This beer disappears faster then cupcakes at a pot party, outstanding.
