Pours very beautiful gold amber with about just shy of an inch of head. On the aroma I get very floral hops, citrus, along with other floral aromas. On the palate you get a strong yet well put together amount of hops, strong citrus in there as well indicative of the classic west coast double, bitter flavor in there as well. One thing I am liking about this one is that nothing seems to be overpowering anything else. Smooth as well. Hops staying around on the palate and the citrus is lingering as well.

Tasting at a beerfest [Disclaimer: This was tasted along with many, many other beers during a tasting at Julios. Some of the details are a little hazy]. Hop Heaven

I found this too be way too sweet. Citrus and grapefruit abound, but the sickly sweet malts proved too much for me. Itís not bad at all, but was hard to down the whole thing. Also, the alcohol was too noticeable for me.

stobbe74 (3789) - DENMARK - MAY 10, 2009
Bottle, 12 fl. oz. Pours a golden beer with an offwhite head. The aroma is very hoppy with a little sour touch. The aroma is also hoppy, but is is very well balanced. The palate is complex with a good hops profile. Overall a very nice beer.

gorditoabd (629) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 10, 2009
Bottle. Pours beautiful deep gold. Minimal foam head. Pine, evergreen, and honey sweetness with a bitter citrus are in the aroma. Taste is solid, though without the bite I was hoping for. The flavor is almost watery, considering the strong aroma and high ABV. It is a smooth finishing beer, the only downside is that itís pretty much the same kind of smooth throughout. Itís a quality brew, just not anything to write home about.

WisconsinBeer (716) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - MAY 7, 2009
Bottle. Bright amber color pour, minimal head. Soft crystal and golden malts, followed by a slightly sweet chewy resinous hop wallop of grapefruit and citrus. Dry hopping adds a slight pine like aromatic presence to the finish. Slight alcohol burn at the end rounds it out. This is definitely a west coast Imperial IPA, big on every level. Solid.

buzzoven (376) - JAPAN - MAY 6, 2009
Very deep orange hue...a little bit murky but otherwise clear colour. Heavy citrus hops from the nose. Piney taste, orange peel, citrusy fruits, slightly sweet but not enough sweetness to balance out the massive bittering blast of this Double IPA monster. Brutal brew...could have used a bit more refining to make it a less challenging experience; i did, however, enjoy this.

Birdiebeagle (958) - Perkasie, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 5, 2009
Bottle Pours a cloudy golden orange with a big off white frothy head. The head seems to last well, and laces even better. Has a good hoppy aroma, of pine and citrus. Has a good carbonation and a good mouthfeel. Has a good bitter flavor. A well blended beer for ABV. Has a solid finish with a great aftetaste. Has a medium body. Very crisp and alittle bit of a dry texture. This is a darn good beer.
