16oz can served in a big snifter. No date that I see. Gift from a friend.

Pours a murky, dull amber with a small head. Lots of very fine, very slow carbonation. Smell is brightly tropical and juicy.

Taste is brightly tropical and juicy, with a strong not-quite-overripe-fruit flavor. Moderately to very sweet, with a strong but not cutting hoppy bitterness. Boozy.

Mouthfeel is thick and smooth. Overall, it's good.

On tap at the NWIPA triple IPA fest.

The beer pours a hazy golden amber color with good head retention and lacing. On the nose, this is one dank smelling IPA. There is a huge aroma of dank earth, Roquefort cheese, light onion and considerable underlying tropic fruit. Just an incredible nose on this bad boy. The flavor profile replicates the nose pretty closely in this TIPA, though I'm impressed by how dry on the finish this beer is. There's also decent bitterness in this beer, and it counters the moderate sweetness very nicely. Alcohol is exceptionally well integrated into the flavor profile, with no sense of heat on the finish. Mouthfeel is pretty full otherwise, with noticeable bitterness on the finish.

Excellent beer from the folks at GN. They really knocked it out of the park with this bad boy... very well done.
