Cloudy burnt orange color. Floral and hop aroma. A little hoppy tasting, but not overpowering. A very enjoyable beer. The high ABV is well disguised. Nice!

Tried on tap for the first time tonight. Burnt orange color, slightly hazy, quickly dissipating head. Scent of apricot and a little floral. Nice bitterness, dry, not lingering, and despite a few reviews stating otherwise, it does Not taste of grapefruit to me. I stress this point for the benefit of the other hop heads like me who don't like that flavor.

Slightly hazy light amber and a thin, tan head with poor retention. Strong floral, earthy hop aroma. Biting bitterness but metered by the malt and caramel sweetness. Light herbal, pine, and citrus peek through the bitterness. Smooth, bittering and caramel coating lingering in the mouth.

Calling this a "Triple IPA" rubs me the wrong way. It's certainly an all bitterness IPA because flavor is fleeting. The mouthfeel however is superb and worth a try. Otherwise, it's certainly a hop head's dream.

Not the best Triple IPA but darn good. Worth the money if it's around, definitely if they have it draft. Very smooth for a triple, people who couldn't handle other triples might be able to take this one on. Has a nice twist to the taste and it also packs a heavy punch. Would recommend these.
