Notes: You will get ZONKED on this beer! Incredibly smooth at 10% abv. We went all out on the hops. Dry hopped at 9lbs/bbl with Simcoe, Citra, Mosaic plus a ton of Galaxy hops.

Ok so this beer should be illegal. Never had a 10%er taste like this. Not even Bloomfield Zoo from OH. Amazing.

Pours gold with some sediment/chunks floating around. But no matter. Punchy hops on the nose - pineapple, mandarin, resin, dank, tropical, hints of alcohol. Taste is also pineapple. Yes, lots of pineapple. Medium carbonation and goes down like an 8 percenter. Overall, would definitely enjoy again.

A: The beer is very hazy to cloudy yellow in color. It poured with a quarter finger high dense white head that gradually died down, consistently leaving a thin head covering the surface and lots of lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of gooseberries and grapefruit are present in the nose.
T: The taste has flavors of gooseberries, lychees, passionfruit and stone fruit. No bitterness is perceptible, but slight bits of alcohol are noticeable in the finish.
M: It feels medium-bodied and surprisingly smooth on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer drinks more like a Double IPA than a Triple IPA and does a very good job at hiding nearly all of the alcohol from the taste. I liked how it was both fruity and smooth.
