Description 

With the aim of finding new and unique ingredients, we honed in on New Zealand grown Pacific Gem and Green Bullet hops to create this adventurous Triple IPA. Green Bullet leaps onto your palate with bold, spicy pine and citrus flavors including tropical notes of mango and pineapple. The aggressive yet well-balanced finish will stun the senses of even the most skilled hop hunter.

This was billed as a Triple IPA, a relatively uncommon style bridging the gap between a Double IPA and an American Barleywine. This particular example does so with distinction. The aroma is full of piney and citrusy hop notes on top of a full (and appropriately), high-gravity malt base. The thick off-white head sits atop an inviting copper brew with ruby highlights. With a flavor that combines and blends crystal malt sweetness with citrusy hops and a palate-pleasing high-gravity alcohol warmth, this beer is satisfyingly close to an American Barleywine, a high compliment indeed when pulled off as harmoniously as this beer is.
