Gorgeous deep orange color; very see through.

Nice bright white head; strong lacing.

Sweet hops in the nose; smells great.

Medium thin mouthfeel.

Sweet fruit upfront; bitter aftertaste. Great balance.

Perhaps the best I've had from this brewery. Bravo.

From notes 10/25/13: Pours a clear honey amber producing 2+ fingers of slightly off-white, moderately lasting, foamy head that leaves a sticky coating of streaky, webby lace. Aroma is a balance of grapefruit and resinous pine hops mixed with sweet caramel malt in background hints of honey, vanilla and tropical fruits. Taste is sweet caramel malt, orange, grapefruit, pineapple and a hint of honey swimming in a sea of pine resin; a very bitter finish gravitates to sweet then to a short-lived balance of bitter and sweet early in the aftertaste which lingers long to become mostly bitter. Very balanced for such a hop heavy brew. Mouthfeel is moderate-heavy bodied,rich, smooth, chewy with light spice and moderate carbonation. While it may sound like heresy to some this one shares similarities with Bell's Hopslam. Touche' Green Flash!

This was poured into a snifter. The appearance was a hazy burnt orange color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute leaving some light speckled lacing clinging here and there. The smell had a good amount of sweet citrus accompanied by sweet and bitter piney hops. Light earthy spice enters in as it warms. The taste was mainly sweet citrus with a nice allocation of bitter piney earthy spices. On the palate, this one sat about a medium on the body showing a sipper aspect about it because I’m noticing the alcohol a bit in this one. The carbonation was there and showed it’s crisp - ness in a DIPA, hey now - honestly not bad, I like it. Overall, good DIPA or er...Triple IPA, whatever it is, I’ll take it again.

12oz bottle with an imperial nonic glass
Taken from many a samples

First had this as their 9th Anniversary brew - now in convenient 6ers
Seems like they were able to dial this one it a bit more as well.

Pale copper color with some mild hop haze and a thick lasting topper of foamy white stuff. Lots of clingy lace. The smell is redolent with tropical fruit mango/papaya, tangerine, pine, herbal zest, and some raw earthiness. Totes a healthy load of caramel malt as well and a tinge of alcohol vapors. Full frontal of hops with lots of tangerine and tropical highlights. Sticky florals and some hempy herbals. Resinous with pine essence that gives way to a decent amount of caramel malt backing here. Slight sweetness about it. ABV’s are masked incredibly well at 10.1% this is dangerously drinkable. Medium with some modest filling. Creamy with a sticky resinous hop linger and a bit of dryness comes out in the finish.

A bit more chewy caramel body on it with that intense hoppiness. All in all a solid IIIPA.

A real hop bomb. Plenty of burn. Extreme citrus, lemony acidic nose and taste. Orange amber body with very thin wispy head. Extremely bitter, but tasty, in small sips.

A truly sought-after garnet, so to speak, among the desirous, raging, rowdy gaggle of cosmically, psychotically, astronomically hoppy, triple-IPA pursuers. Have you ever heard of a placed called New Zealand? Also, have you ever heard of a thing called colonialism? How about Imperialism? It makes me sick to capitalize, let alone type, at all, this word.

Drink this beer, report back, thanks for reading, and enjoy.
