On tap, surprisingly, at Harry's Hofbrau in Redwood City.

A: Comes in a snifter. Clear amber body with little to no head; apparently it fades quite quickly. No lace. Slightly leggy.

S: Syrupy sweetness and a touch of pine and grapefruit. Not particularly expressive on the nose.

T: A powerful up-front sweetness with a modest flavoring dose of pine, some grapefruit. Lots of bitter, grassy hops that define the mid-taste and pull into the post-finish for a sticky, palate-wrecking close.

M: Oily, syrupy; these qualities would work well if it weren't for the bitterness that comes with them. The carbonation can't keep up; it fails to scrub the palate.

O: I was told this was a month-old keg; I don't know if that's true, but it certainly explains why a triple IPA smells and tastes rather un-hoppy. I can't in good conscience recommend this.

Heavy body. Very bitter without much aroma or flavor to balance it.

Overly piney up front, overly malty later. If you like old school IIPAs that are just as sweet as bitter, this is for you
