The triple version of whiteknuckle (often outdated in stores, no bottle date) the brass knucks are the trips. Thick viscous pour like some other triple ipas, this one jumps with citra like hops, a shocking lull into high bitterness and boozy alcohol, but warming and enjoyable, not just bitter hops, there are dry hops going on here, good.

Taste was pungent hop, herbal oils, almost summit like onion and garlic contributions. Super bitter, I'd guess over 100 ibu. Its pretty good actually, but you really gotta be in the place to drink something so huge.

"Hoppy kick in the teeth" said the bartender. He was right. I'd add with a smooth finish like a good imperial ipa.
