This “triple” IPA pours a honey-gold color, with a dense head that leaves good lacing behind. With about six pounds of hops added per barrel, it offers intense aromas of citrus, pine and tropical fruits, all of which transition into the smooth, creamy palate. There's ample caramel malt at the core, grounding the hop flavors and appropriately bitter texture. Though slightly warm and round in body, it's not out of balance, and offers a pleasant hit of pine-resin flavor on the finish.
