True to type. In spite of the ABV, it isn't overpowering. I've enjoyed it from a pint can into glass numerous times and find it to be consistently fine. Brilliant head which doesn't last long but lacing does and so does the flavor. Mouthfeel is smooth though not creamy. Hops don't bite as much as I would expect from a Triple but that's just fine.
Almost clear amber coloring. Generally wonderful.
Oh wait, the ABV is kicking in now.

Obtained a 16 oz. can of Carrington Event in a recent trade. Icarus products are not distributed in my state but I've previously enjoyed 6 of their products thanks to a NJ trading partner. I mention this because I was somewhat concerned about being overpowered by a 10.4% Triple IPA but nonetheless decided to give it a try based on my previous experience with the brewery. Turned out to be a good decision on my part.

Very sweet but not, at least to my taste, excessively so and, to my surprise, it didn't seem dominated by the ABV. I probably wouldn't want it at lunchtime but it's a great for a relaxed evening. I hope there's a future opportunity to obtain a few more cans - probably the best overall Triple IPA I've had in recent years. Icarus scores again for me.
