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.
