In a snifter the beer is a gold color with a fairly large white head and plenty of lace.
Mostly a caramel and pine aroma. Some citrus.
Taste followed the nose and improved on it. Caramel, pine resin, late hit of grapefruit.
Very smooth. Never would guess it is 10% ABV,

12oz bottle, from the 2016 seasonal release. Served in a snifter glass. Pours a clear darker caramel-golden body, one finger white head, good carbonation, smooth lacing. Smells fairly sweet, lots of caramel, heavy resin, fair bit of floral and grapefruit hoppiness. Flavour follows; as a triple IPA it trends towards super sweet, with a hefty resinous bite on the backend. Heavy caramel and grassiness. Mouthfeel is medium-fuller bodied, a touch syrupy, good carbonation, fairly sweet with a big bitter bite on the finish. Essentially, this tastes like a very sweet, caramel heavy beer with a huge bitter grapefruit and floral bite. Just about what you'd expect from a triple IPA.

Too boozy tasting for me but it's a Triple IPA so that's my fault not theirs.

Pours a slightly hazy yellow with an off white head. The nose is strongly citrus, with tangerine, mandarin orange, and clementine. The palate is extremely fruity, following the lead of the nose, with a respectable amount of hops, but not the dry west-coast IPA element I was hoping for. Mouthfeel is med/med-light. A very strong DIPA, but, as with its Columbus DIPA brother, not one that lives up to the hype.
