Notes: Triple Dry-Hopped Triple IPA. A combination of all three Derivatives, this beer shoves three full mashes into one batch and then crushes it with a triple dry hop of Galaxy, Citra, and Mosaic.

One of my top favorite DIPA's of all time. Listed as a triple but not the least bit boozy. I don't understand how this is possible with a 10% ABV. It punches above it's weight class, big time! You can't pound them, but they are absolutely delicious. A beer to wait in line for - although you don't even have to if you get there in time.

16oz. can served in my Spiegelau tulip. Pours a murky burnt orange with a creamy, half-inch, bright white head embedded with pinpricks. Nose expresses pungent aromas of citrus and pith. Taste consistent with nose. Mouthfeel on this beer is great. Light-medium with a silky/creamy texture (wonder if flaked oats were used). Even carbonation finishes with a slightly astringent/medicinal bite. All and all, top notch with a deceivingly hidden abv.

Pouring a cold 16 oz can into my snifter. Thanks to Schuee for the hookup!
Beer pours a hazy apricot color with a spongy, fairly dense eggshell white head of 2.5 cm. The foam fades slowly towards a sturdy surface layer and leaves scattered lattice on the sides of my glass after each sip.
The aroma is what would be expected, all hops. I get citrus notes of orange and some peach as well with a bit of grassy note buried under the fruit notes.
The first sip reveals a soft silky textured brew with very fine, tingly carbonation. Physical traits are smooth for such a bigger beer.
The flavor is similar to the nose with the added breath of biscuit malt up front and then this rolls to citrusy hops with orange and tangerine and a bit of peach too. The peach notes linger a bit after each swallow and are met with a little bit of pine sap bite. Amazingly the 10% doesnt show up anywhere here and this is a dangerously crushable brew. Glad to have had a chance to try it.
