Special thanks to N-Gogol for sharing a bottle with me. The poured out as a nice clear looking golden color with a white head on top. The smell of the beer is pretty well balanced with malt and hops. The taste is like a bomb of hops exploding in your mouth. It's really well done to cover you a big grain bill for a 10% beer. The feel is medium bodied. Overall I thought the beer was pretty sick, definitely worth trying.

This is a fabulous triple IPA from Ohio. This beer looks delicious. The hop flavor comes through without being overly sweet and boozy. This was a fresh bottle, drank within a week of bottling.

12 oz bottle dated 3/6/17 poured into a tulip.

Pours a clear, straw color, with an inch of white head that faded fairly quickly, and left heavy lacing.

Aroma is sweet malts, and candy like tropical fruit.

Taste starts with sweet malts quickly followed by a wave of citrus and honey, with very little alcohol presence.

Feel is medium bodied, and extremely drinkable for its ABV.

Overall a great DIPA, that hides it ABV very well. I would never turn this down, but the sweetness is very prominent, and a bit much for something I would drink regularly.

Mundane and average. Though better than bodhi (which is comically overrated).

Good, but it seems like once you get over 9% these big DIPAs start to lose their allure. Smells great--nice mix of tropical fruit, sharp citrus and sweet malts. However, the strong malt presence becomes a bit overbearing in the taste and feel. Would never turn this down, but I much prefer Bodhi, where the hops are free to shine.

Bottled on 09/23/2016. Enjoyed on 01/15/2017.

Low rating most likely due to the 4-month age on this bottle.
