Canned on 11/27/17 opened on 12/7/17 10.5 % abv. 3x IPA !

Pours a very thick, opaque orange golden color, clumpy, and dense white sea foam cap. Rocky and creamy, sloooow dissipation. Only a scattered but of foam is left, with a solid ring around the edge and some minimal lacing.

The nose is just bursting with heady sweet tropical fruits from the hops, red fruits, pineapple, apples, mango and starfruit. The malt is very sweet, honey and wheat style. Slight vanilla oak and biscuit.

Sure is a boozy first sip, the heat mingles with massive tangy citrus, sweet tropical flavored hops. Pineapple, grapefruit, mango, mint leaves, oakie vanilla sweetness, honey sweet malt, fermented apple cider, and finishing with a long, lingering bitterness of green/leafy tadting hops. A very fresh, wet and dry hopped style hoppy complexity. The hop flavor is deep and only enhanced by the thick, heady malt and boozy heat. This is about as big and thick as any Imperial IPA I've ever had.

The mouthfeel is thick, full, fresh, boozy hot, bitter, earthy finish. Heady and full body. Juicy.

This 3 x Imperial New England style ipa pushes the limits in every way. Thick, chunky, juicy, boozy, complex hop and heady malt makes it a beast. The classic tropical juice, fresh hop style complexity is maxed out. The overall bitterness is actually very mellow concidering the amount of big hops must be in this. Whamo!!

Really hazy golden color with off-white head. Aroma is mostly citrusy with some lemon candy and a bit of booze. Taste has a touch of butter biscuits, orange rind and leafy hop bitterness on the finish. Medium plus body with soft carbonation. It has some nice flavors but it's quite boozy.

Really liked the pithy juice quality. Meaty in a good way but cheery too

16 oz can into IPA glass. Dated 11/1/18.
look is nice hazy orange, Smell is complex, lots going on, stone fruit apricot, pineapple. Taste is big, tropical fruit as nose suggests; apricot and a ton more, ends with boozy bite. Feel medium and creamy. Overall this is a big beer with a lot going on. Not sure I could drink this all the time but a nice change.
