L - pours a deeply hazy peach paint-looking color. Solid brick of murk. Creamy head that quickly nopes out of here, but leaves legs for days.

S - tropical fruit punch with loads of pineapple, lime juice, zesty orange peel, and peach candy. Hints of oniony dank, but the focus is on thick, sweaty, oily hops in a juicy fruit bouquet. Honey comes out right at the very end, leaving a touch of bubblegummy sweetness.

T - honey-heavy on the tongue with massive hop acidity. Pineapple sweetness peppered with biting grapefruit rind and smoothing vanilla lemon meringue pie. Cool whip and whipped cream add a layer of softness in an attempt to mask the alcohol, although it still manages to peek through here and there. Finish is tingly and numbing with lingering hop-saturated acidity in my throat

F - rich, full-bodied, and pleasantly fluffy to keep it from motor oiling. Low carbonation and a generally up-beat mouthfeel. I can dig it.

O - just a well-done juicy TIPA. The honey isn't anything new, but is always a favorite in this house. Great balance between acidic citrus peel, dank, and fruit flavors. Errs more toward the spicy, zesty, sticky side of things.

Had at the brewery. I liked this beer the smell and taste were very tropical and strong. the honey added to the sweetness but kind of smoothed things out. This was a strong beer that took everything to the extreme but still managed to stay balanced.

Tasted in a snifter from draft at More Brewing Co. on March 1, 2019. Double dry hopped triple IPA brewed with honey and Citra hops. Thick haze with a smooth creamy feel.

Beautiful pour from the can, with billowing yellow haze with a solid head of white foam. Big aromas of mango, apricot, banana, pineapple, orange, honey, and dank hops. Taste is sweet fruit nectar and honey upfront, but just as you start to feel it is too sweet, the hops reign down upon you. Texture is fluffy, juicy, hazy, smooth, and terrifyingly drinkable for the abv. Thought they hit this one out of the park.

Draft at MoRE. Deep yellow-orange opaque appearance. TIPAs are already sweet as is. With the honey addition, this was just absurdly sweet.

Perfect hazy look and pearl foam, lots of legs. Sweet floral smell. Taste is sweet mango, citrus twang, stone fruit, strong hop bitterness and some booze on the finish. Good thick mouthfeel.

Solid beer. DDH Double Space boots is better than this, if you're comparing MORE beers
