Drake (10841) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - AUG 16, 2009
22 ounce bottle courtesy of CrellMoset. Thanks! Pours a hazy peach color with a medium head. Good head retention and lacing. Big resiny citrus notes with a good toffee-like maltiness. Taste is resiny hop notes with citrus, pineapple and a note of toffee. Full bodied. Straightforward double IPA but very good.

GT2 (9410) - Oceanside, California, USA - AUG 16, 2009
650 mL. Pours a clear apple juice-colored amber with a one-finger, egg-shell head. Awesome, sticky lacing. Aroma is exquisite- pretty much the exact aroma in my opinion to Bells Hopslam: tons of orange blossom and clover honey, big grapefuit hops, fresh citric hops. Taste is caramel, grapefruit hops, spices, honey, and some nutty bitterness. Pretty refreshing actually. As this warms the near 10% comes into play with an extra spicy kick. Very close to Hopslam but lacks the palate.

Skeets (25) - Sacramento, California, USA - AUG 15, 2009
Bottle from Bev Mo (not refrigerated). Pale clear golden color..No head. Nice full piney hop aroma. Flavor is well balanced, pine, some citrus, some light malt. Not too bitter. Hides higher ABV welll. Might not have been fresh, but I still enjoyed this beer.

BOLTZ7555 (2985) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - AUG 14, 2009
Interesting IIPA...beautiful liquid gold body with a dense ivory head that left sticky lacing on the inside of the glass. Aroma is aggressive evergreen and bright citrus. Flavor is filled with spruce, douglas fir, and ponderosa...it is amazing how much pine is included in the flavor (by far the most of any beer Iíve tasted). Grapefruit and lemongrass are also present. Medium mouthfeel.

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - AUG 8, 2009
Bottle from Samís. Pours golden with bubbly white head. Nose of tropical fruits, citrus, and some pine. A little sweet. Tastes more sweet than expected, though not cloying... just wish the hops came through a bit more on the taste, particularly in the mid palate. They come back with a bitter, nearly tannic finish, but the citrus was more-or-less lost. Solid, but not as good as expected.

TURDFERGUSON (4024) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - AUG 8, 2009
Bottle from SAMs. Pours golden with a small white head. Nose is pine, citrus, tropical fruit, light caramel. Pretty nice flavor- tropical fruit, pine. Bitter, slightly astringent finish. Pretty nice, but I think this sculpin is a bit more polished and clean.

Ramenen (466) - San Salvador, EL SALVADOR - AUG 8, 2009
Drank it while deep sea fishing in La Pepeshka with rcasta. Pours a deep golden with tan head. Medium bodied, nice balance of malts and hopiness flavors of pine and citrus.

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - AUG 2, 2009
22 oz bottle. Pours a slightly cloudy golden orange with a small sticky white head. Big aroma of hops, typical Pac NW scents, citrus, floral, pine, there is a bit of malt and alcohol way back in there too. The flavor is a great balance of sweet and bitter, not as bitter as the aroma would make you think though. Medium body with average carbonation and a slightly dry finish. This is a really great IIPA, the alcohol is hidden really well and the hops really come though in the aroma and flavor without too much bitterness.

Not typically a fan of IPAís but this Double IPA is amazing. For itís high alcohol content the bitterness is not really present at all. Great aftertaste.
