Mother says I shouldn't be drinking this, but I am anyways. After just 3 of these I might even dress up in her clothes, and my name isn't even Norman Bates. Anyways, color is an orange-copper with a steady, rocky pure white head on top. Duration is average, about 3 or 4 min. Aroma as sharp as Mother's shriek, prickly like pine needles. Orange, citrus pith, a spray from her glass puff ball perfume. Rose hips, tropical fruit sweetness reminiscent of pineapple, rotting papaya. There's enough sweetness at times with enough berry esters that I think it's an American Barleywine at times, but no that's not what the can says. Oh, the mouthfeel bespeaks IPA: very drinkable for such a high gravity beer. Moderate carbonation, medium-light body, restrained astringency, and gradual warmth. Overall, well-attenuated. Taste is pretty sweet brahs, definitely on the lines of juicy fruit with a dank spruce tip addition although some lychee fruit sneaks in for an earthier element.

This beer is an intense showcase of New World hops. The malt character is just there; a smidge more and it's one of the premiere barleywines for winter drinking. This beer was crafted with drinkability in mind, and to that ends as far as 3xIPAs are concerned, a tremendous success; but, comparatively to other beers in general it's passable. Personally, my taste falls more in line with EGOIPA because that's just more me.

Can dated 12/22/16. Poured into Belgian ale glass.

L: 1F head very quickly knocked down by ABV. Very little lacing left, no cap or ring or anything else. Beer is a clear deep amber with visible carbonation bubbles.

S: Sweet, syrupy, malty. Citrus and piney.

T: Thick and chewy, sweet malts, caramel malts, citrus. Broadens out to pine and earthy dankness with a little bit of ABV heat.

F: Medium to full-bodied, light carbonation, long finish with little drying. Good construction and balance. Pretty good job of controlling the ABV, but still a sipper.

O: Carton is very good at these heavy-hitters and this long-awaited beer is another example. Hope someday to do an ID, EGO, SUPEREGO vertical.

About an 11 on the SRM color index. Smells like mango,pineapple,clove, extreme hoppiness. Tastes like fermented peach,mild garlic,lemon zest,massive malts fading in the background Feels smooth and creamy which is amazing considering the ABV. Medium finish, overall this beer is mind boggling.Carton is an amazing brewery in my opinion. This would taste like S*it from almost any other brewer. I thought DFH 120 minute IPA was really not good. This is a perfect balance for an Imperial quad IPA.

Pours a deep golden : amber, a little on the darker side of golden, slight haze, minimal head. Citrusy aroma, mango, pineapple , lemon. Huge beer! Loads of dank hops (Galaxy?), tongue numbing bitterness, yet still sweet. Lots of mango, papaya, and citrusy lemon rind. Nice malt balance. Carbonation is on point, gives a creamy feel to the beer. Overall a great beer, very tangy, hoppy, and big. ABV is 13% and it tastes like 13% - not a bad thing.

taste is sweet and full of hop flavor. a strong flavor, clearly a big beer. easy to drink yet huge, must manage to simple sip this

Canned 1/9/17. A fruit salad Frankenstein'd out of "dank" green onions/scallions; mango, papaya, oregano, berry and perfume. 13% portends a bigger beer, yet this doesn't seem to hit so high; each sip remains easy, and with little hint of the ABV. For me, the strongest branch of the EGO family tree due to its depth. Take time to enjoy all that is offered, sip-by-sip, and you might appreciate Carton's EGO-evolution even more. In any case, a dank "triple IPA" worth its weight on its own.

Right up there with Grimm and The Other Half in terms or quality but different vibe. The description is dead on accurate. Way more of a dank taste than fruity or piney. Much like other Carton high ABV offerings, this tastes more like 8% than 13%. Very enjoyable.
