3.85/5  rDev +4.6%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Pours hazy amber with a thin white head that fades. Aroma is light hop and grapefruit, less than you expect from a IIPA. Taste is hoppy but a bit more sharp then I prefer. Feel is a bit astringent, not bad, just a touch. Overall a decent high ABV IPA.

3.48/5  rDev -5.4%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: pours a hazy orange color with a 1/4" head that falls to some spotty surface bubbles.

Smell: light fruit aroma.

Taste: caramel, lemon zest, grapefruit, some pine, and an earthy bitterness. Alcohol is well hidden.

Mouthfeel: medium-heavy in body. Light crispness throughout. Dryness late.

Overall: a so-so triple IPA as the flavors were a bit muted.

Canned 1/19/2018 so 9 days old when reviewed. Poured into Czig Meister pint glass. It pours a hazy honey-orange color with almost a finger of soapy, milk-white head that dissipated slowly leaving a thin coating of lacing. Its nose features lemon, onion, grapefruit, pine needles, and a fairly sweet malt. The taste opens with a sweet malt followed almost immediately by a blast of resinous Citra, Mosaic & Galaxy hops. They are bitter but delicate and do not bite hard. There are also light notes of grape and grapefruit throughout. It's a very well-balanced ale. The mouth feel is quite creamy with pleasantly moderate carbonation and it seems to drink well below 10.3% ABV. From the description I anticipated a heavier, more dank ale more akin to Superego or Magnify's Flavor Waiver. This is as light and crisp a TIPA as you're likely to find and it's very nicely brewed. I've been enjoying Czig Meister's offerings lately. The brewery's really hitting its stride.
