So excited to get my hands on this one, hopefully it stands up to the reviews! The appearance is B.eautiful, but not too hard to screw that up. The aroma coming from this beast is pure hop overload! very hoppy, and lots of tropical notes to back that up, slight citrus note and even some dankness, the aroma is hanging out in my nose!
taste. this is not an ipa to mess around with, triple, no kidding! this is one hoppy mo fo! very tropically/citrusy with some strong bitter hop dankness. yum! mouthfeel is awesome higher end low carbonation with some silky mouthfeel slikness.
overall: great ipa, especially triple, if you can find it. no booziness to speak of, very filling and rich though, don't take this on alone!!

Pours out a dark amber in color with a one finger, white head with good retention and decent lacing for the size of the head. Smell is nice tropical hops, guava, pineapple, a little orange, with a tiny bit of pine. Definitely sense a little sweetness and caramel from the malts. Taste is quite nice with more of the tropical but a little more muted than in the nose. I get a little more pine that seems to linger in the throat as swallowed which is nice. Mouthfeel is is nice and thick for the style. Overall I have to say that this is probably my favorite Steel Toe beer I have drank but I haven't had them all.
