Shared 22 oz bottle.
Unfiltered cloudy amber.
Large durable head
Smooth with a slight harshness, but quite mild for 10% ABV and the heavy hop load.
Herbal citrus hops. Hints of honey. Slightly boozy.

16oz can served in a big snifter. 3-14-18.

Pours a hazy amber with a biggish head and a lot of carbonation. Smell is juicy and resinous.

Taste is overpoweringly bitter. There is a tiny bit of juicy sweetness in the background. It's not bad, but it's too much.

Mouthfeel is dry and resinous. Overall, not bad, just unbalanced. A little surprisingly they were able to cram in enough hops to overpower 10% abv.

22oz bottle poured into a snifter. Bottled Jan 7th 2014.

A: Pours a hazy amber with a mild white head on top. A bit too opaque to see any visible carbonation. Leaves some spots of lacing on the glass.

S: Very nice hop aroma on this one, pleasant citrus and piney notes

T: As with the aroma this one hits you with a wall of hops. Real nice fruity aspect to them that takes front stage over the bitterness.

M: Medium body with mild carbonation. Has a good nectar like quality that I appreciate in IPA's. Very easy drinking for the ABV.

Overall this is a tasty triple IPA where the fruitiness and flavor of the hop outweighs the bitterness in the flavor. Dont get me wrong there is still a good dose of bitters, just a great flavor that keeps up with it.

Poured from 16oz tall can into a tulip. Can is stamped 3/14/18, so I'm assuming that's the canning date -- pi day!

Appearance: moderately hazy orange hue with two fingers of frothy ivory foam atop. Head has decent retention and leaves a nice lace on the glass.

Smell: very earthy and dank hop aroma; it's good, but it's rather one-note in my opinion.

Taste: a little brightness and sweetness in the flavor give life to the dank hop character present in the aroma; perhaps just a little bit too piquant overall, but still a darn good beer.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a good carbonation and creaminess for the style. I like it.

Overall: an interesting beer. I like it overall, though the extra shot of something (I'm calling it "piquant" but whatever it is, it's some kind of imbalance) could be toned down.

Given as a gift, April 2014. Poured into a large glass tumbler at fridge temp.

appearance: apple juice pale amber with a thick white head, nice lacing.

smell: peaches in syrup, papaya.

taste: juicy fruit, lychee maybe? very simple. Bitterness takes a long while to build.

mouthfeel: yes.

overall: not sure what is going on here. A minimalist IPA. Simple to the extreme.

A thanks to the commander of the canquest, woodychandler, for this beer. Poured from a 16 oz. can. Has a hazy dark golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is dank, some melons. Taste is of melons, alcohol, light pine, moderate bitterness. Feels full bodied in the mouth and overall, a bit boozy, but still a pretty good beer.

Poured into a 16 oz Flying Dog tulip glass not sure when it was bottled, but I trust @jzeilinger and know it is fresh. Pours a dark hazy orange with a massive 3 finger stickywhite head that clings tothe glass leaving a ton of patches of lace behind.

Smell is apricot, hard candy, over ripened mellon, peach, pine, tangerine, and grapefruit rind.

Taste follows apricot, hard candy, ripe honey dew, peach, tangerine, pine, and a heavy dose of grapefruit and kind bud's.

Mouthfeel is on the big side, sticky as hell from loads of hops, enough carbonation, and drinks easier than it should, but really lingers after each sip.

Overall this is a very nice beer, not for everyone, but a hop head like me enjoys a huge dank beer like this. Really enjoyed it.

22 oz bottle picked up at quick stop at Bottles in search of triple ipa.
A: pours a nice deep golden orange, +1 finger thick foamy head, heavy stringy lacing, carbonation
S: citrus fruits, sweet tropical fruit, apricot, slight grainy aroma, hops, pine, nothing to over the top with hops for a triple
M: medium creamy body, coats the tongue
T: grapefruit, citrus, tropical fruits, cracker, maltiness from grain, a little bit of mineral taste, slight pine resin, some bitterness in the finish, a little hint of booziness as it warms. Not a hop bomb but rather what I would call a high hopped ipa. I split the 22oz bottle and would do so again.
O: good brew and tasty, not on the level of Moylan's hopsickle or green flash pallet wrecker, but tasty if a hop head. Bottle says 100 ibus and 10%abv
