In a world of imbalanced IPAs, this beer stands out. Quite the opposite. Deep pine, citrus, smooth MF, citrus and more.

Hazy, dark orange body; thick, white head, frothy and sticky; rings of foam encircle the glass. Fantastic nose of citrus and oats; orange and tangerine. Standard hazy India pale ale taste; bitter and juicy; oat-like; phenolic; boozy. Heavy body; kind of sludgy; creamy; undercurrent of alcohol warmth and dryness.

For being a triple IPA, this beer is pretty decent. It's not far off from lesser ABV hazy beers as far as taste goes. The appearance and aroma are par for the style. While definitely packing some alcohol punch, the beer still drinks easily enough. A fine beer to try, especially if you like a bold hop presence.

Masterful balance of hops and malts in this New England TIPA with fruity notes and hidden 10% ABV. Orange colored with a hefty carbonation and though lasting foam head. Easy to respect this beer :)

I will revisit this as I'm certain I must have had a spoiled can, not only based on it's ratings and reviews here, but I could tell immediately by the thin, transparent pour and lack of head that it had turned. Bummer.

Canned 07-25
Opened 09-08

Sad that it deteriorated so drastically in just 6 weeks. was really looking forward to this one.

Single 16oz can from The Lazy Dog, at $5.99 (though $20 for a 4-pack).

Pours a slightly hazy, muted golden color. Has a fine, thin, white head, most of which gathers at the rim. Lacing is fairly light, overall. Aroma is mildly sweet and fruity, with some tangerine and apricot. Feel is rather smooth, with a body in the medium range, but no more.

Flavor has some mild crackery, biscuity malt action as a foundation. Then there's fruity, hoppy shenanigans coming into play. Lastly, some light grapefruit, a bit o' sweeter apricot, and pithy, rindy notes. Rather so-so and underwhelming, all in all (especially for the price). Prosit!

Pours a hazy dark orange with a 1F head and light lacing.

Smells of slightly dank grassy and floral hops with citrus and sweet fruit.

Tastes of lightly tart grapefruit, lemon and melon with a mildly bitter boozy warm finish.

Medium body with light carbonation. Lightly syrupy mouthfeel.

This brew is a very drinkable, powerful, well balanced, sipper.

I still recommend trying anything BBC puts out.

On tap. Hazy golden sunset.

Dank and weedy, but also tropical and fruity. Honeydew, mango, papaya, floral, weed, resin. Some bitterness. Some softness. Sticky finish. Hides the 10% fairly well.

Triple IPA.

Pours a dark orange with three fingers of off-white foam. Aroma is resiny, herbaly, medicinal, tropical fruit, and piney hops. It leans well into the sticky nether of hop notes - a spider web of evergreen notes. Flavor profile is medicinal, resiny, herbaly, grassy, piney, and tropical fruit hops. While the sticky, evergreen notes lead it, the tropical fruits create an equal balance on the back end. Forward is sticky and bitter, but the backend carries some soothing sweetness. Mouth feel is medium-thick with a hearty silty texture. Overall, an absolute hop bomb that carries both sticky, resiny hops and sugary, citrus hops.

Served in a 15.5oz Speigalau tulip from a 16oz can.

7.30.21 canned. Nice 2” head dissipates into a 1” head. Smells like dank tropical fruits, mango durian gasoline notes but not Strong, kind of standard ipa smell for today but nice tight and not very yeasty. Melon grass hop odor. Nice body but definitely shows perhaps a little age in terms of maltiness on the finish This has been refrigerated it’s whole life afaik. Really nice lasting cantaloupe melon dank flavor throughout, with some tangents but a really solid backbone. Melon vibes linger for a while, corny but it’s lip smacking like run your tongue around your mouth after finishing a sip and it’s dank musky melon all over again. At this point honestly gotta bump my rating up slightly, it’s quite nice solid 4.2, not my favorite would grab a single over a 4pk but happy either way.

Doesn’t hit like 10% at all. This is better than trilliums Insert hip hop reference anywhere. That is a hop soup you experience, this a delight
