COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

4-20-08 bottle shared with lb4lb thanks to Overlord
Big bright cloudy orange (nice bold vibrant color) with a huge frothy great head - big and thick and beautiful. Smell is nice and bold and fruity oranges and grapefruit. Flavor is creamy and hoppy but not very bitter. It is really smooth and really creamy. Alcohol is present but it is a very sweet alcohol that works here. Sweet and hoppy orange finish that is really nice and clean. Overall, very enjoyable.

brewandbbq (269) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 2, 2008
Pours clear copper with a half inch white head. The dense foam recedes within two minutes and reveals a partial skim coat on the surface and some decent lacework. Aromatics are pungent, piney, and citrusy. Notes of wet hay and juniper add some earthy zest, along with spruce sap and grapefruit pith. Alcohol is evident with a trace of fusels intermingeling with spiked orange skins and grapeskins. Mouthfeel is dry, crisp, and mildly stinging from assertive bitterness. The pallet is juicy and piney, heavy on the pink grapefruit and orange pith. Conifer sap from the bough, with alcohol steeped dried fruits. Bitterness is substantial and borderline astringent, lingering as lengthy as the warming alcohol. Finishes almost hot, with jowel-watering bitterness and tongue-gripping alphas. A great beer, but I think a fresher example would boost the numbers.

afterglow (1047) - Florida, USA - APR 27, 2008
Bottle courtesy of Quake1028 or Ibrew2or3. Pours a clear golden with a small white head. Aroma of orange zest, pine, grassy hops, and sweet malt. Taste is the same as aroma. Medium mouthfeel with a strong but well balanced amount of bitterness. Very good

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 26, 2008
A Mes rate: Bottle at Chris_O’s Ha Ha Ha Ha Gimme the Cheese Tasting.
Amber coloured with a thin white head. Very good grassy hops nut a little too much wheat flavour pulls it slightly out of line. Very slight hints of alcohol but it’s well hidden really making it drink a little below its strength. Possibly a little too sweet but all in all a decent IPA.

harrisoni (13283) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - APR 25, 2008
Bottle at Chris_o’s The Wolf tasting. Hazy gold. Piney hop aroma. Good grapefruit. Bit empty on malts. Good beginning and end, but a bit metallic in the middle.

JorisPPattyn (7816) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - APR 23, 2008
Draught No head (dirty glass - at the brewery!), slightly hazy orange colour. Very expressly pineapple nose, some hops, but generally sweetish-fruity smelling. Fruits and sweetish, like a fruitcake with pineapple and some citrus. Hops are there, but they hardly seem US! Yet, this is good, if a tad sweet. Medium bodied. Quite easily drinkable, the alcohol being inconspicious, this is a dangerous one. The least hoppy of all IIPA’s - and yet this is more than OK. And such thing on the West Coast - shocking!

AllAboutStout (605) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 22, 2008
Pours a dark amber in color with a nice frothy half inch head. Smell is somewhat past prime hops and lots of malt to help support the hops that were there. Taste is much the same. Don’t know if this bottle didn’t travel well or just got a old bottle. The hops are not what they should be.
