4.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Large off-white head of fine bubbles with very good carbonation. Awesome aroma with lots of pine, oranges and grapefruit. A plethora of all things hoppy and wonderful. Some sweet malts and hint of cat urine. Not in a bad way though. Color is a hazy golden orange. Flavor is extreamly well balanced with a good malt backbone to offset the huge amount of hops. Bitterness does not overwealm but certainly takes front stage. More grapefruit and a bit of nuttiness. Very smooth and easy drinking with just a hint of alcohol presence. Finishes a bit of herbal hops and lingering sweet malts. This is a fantastic IIPA. One of the best. Big thaks to Fredward for this gem!

Wow! Drank from can as directed. So I'm just assuming the appearance is as good as it smells and tastes! This beer lives up to the hype! Big ole stinky American DIPA. Huge hop flavor. Citrusy and bitter! Lingering hop sticks around for quite some time! My kind of punch in the mouth big boy IPA! If I could only drink one beer for the rest of my life this would be it!! Wish it was distributed to NC.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a hazy orange. (Yes, I know weíre supposed to drink it from the can, but I just couldnít bear to do that. But I am lucky enough to have another can so Iíll try that experience as well!) Not bad looking but unremarkable, as far as appearances go. Nice, piney, grapefruit hop bomb for the nose. Drinks sharp with loads of grapefruity citrus and pine resin. Some sweet malt in the finish but overall, a nice, scrubbing effect. IMO, one of the few beers that lives up to the hype. Iím not trading my first born for a 4 pack but you can bet Iíll make the pilgrimage to try and score some more! Good job!

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a cloudy light orange with a 2 finger off white foam. The foam is thick and so is the hoppy aroma. Resiny, citrus, and appealing. Medium body has a thick hop bitterness. Body supports well without sweetness. Finish is dry, clean, and very smooth. Excellent IPA.

16 ounce can. Thanks Gary! Poured a few ounces, drank the rest from the can. Pours a hazy gold with a nice white head. Aroma of citrus and some pine. Taste is grapefruit, other tropicals, pine, florals, and some caramel malt. Great balance and a great finish. Well worth the trade I made.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from 16 oz can. Cloudy amber with cream head. Citrus pine nose, very bitter. I can see where the hop head go nuts however, most imperial IPA Iíve had have some malt to balance out the bitter. Didnít really get that blend. There are others that are better with a lot less hype. Still good though.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
16 oz can at a tasting at Gregís, served in a stem glass. Pours cloudy amber with a small white head that fades to a thin remnant, leaving behind a small amount of fine lace. The nose has nice floral hops, along with caramel malts, cookie and grapefruit. The flavour is balanced between moderately bitter piney hops and moderately sweet caramel malts. Flowers are present throughout. It finishes with a long, lingering bitterness with spice and grapefruit. On the palate, it is medium in body with a smooth, milky texture and soft carbonation. Overall, this is a very nice double IPA but I felt the finish to be a bit of a disappointment. 2012-09-15

Cans thanks to Balto_MD. Very bitter. Lots of hops. Didnt get much malt on the back end to balance it out. This was a very good IIPA. Had it against the other top competitors. Up there not better.

Can 473cl @ Geokkjer
Pours hazy deep golden/copper with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, caramel, citrus, grape, orange and peach. Taste is medium sweet and medium to heavy bitter with a long warm, citrus and tropical fruity finish. Body is full, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.
