Outstanding
Notes: Featuring Citra, Mosaic, Strata, & Galaxy hops, this TIPA is a juicy, juicy doozy. Potent notes of overripe stone fruit, mango nectar, and whole orange (juice! pith! zest!). The TIPA is dialed in—the body is full but not heavy; the sweetness is bright but not cloying. Some 10% easy-drinking kind of celebratory fun!

Can from the brewery in BK during the 2020 COVID pause. Pours hazy light golden/yellow with generous white head and nice lacing, smell is dank, herbaceous, and almost must pine, hints of candied orange peel and mango skin, taste follows the nose with sweet almost minty dank pine resin and cotton candy, mellows to peach concentrate and hints of citrus, finishes dry, minimal pithy bitterness, the feel is medium bodied and creamy. A dank fruity banger. Yum!

This one pours a hazy golden yellow color, with a small head, and lots of lacing.

This smells like orange creamsicle, grassy and sharp hop character, slight booze, melon, and citrus juice.

I don't traditionally like triple IPAs, as they just tend to be too sweet and boozy. This avoids too much overt sweetness, but it definitely does have a leafy and boozy bitterness. I get a lot of orange creamsicle, stone fruit, and mango type flavors, along with a bit of melon rind. Despite my usual hesitance with the style, this really isn't too bad.

This is thick, and creamy, with a lingering bitterness on the back end. It's more easy drinking than most triple IPAs.

This will never be a go to style for me, but I did enjoy this. It mostly hides the booze well, and the hop character is very nice.

4.26/5  rDev -1.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A: The beer is very hazy to cloudy whitish yellow in color. It poured with a half finger high white head that died down, leaving a large, thin patch of bubbles on the surface, a narrow collar around the edge, and lots of lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of gooseberries are present in the nose along with notes of mango and hints of lime citrus.
T: The taste has flavors of gooseberries along with notes of honeydew melon, lime, and stone fruit along with hints of mangos. There are some additional hints of grapefruit citrus in the finish.
M: It feels a bit more than medium-bodied and quite juicy on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This IPA is packed with lots of aromas and flavors from the hops but does a remarkable job at hiding any traces of alcohol fro the taste.
