Bottle. Absolutely amazing IPA. Super hoppy in both taste and smell, but without the balance a lot of brews strive for. This is one of those beers that will kick you in the ass and say "IíM AN IPA, DAMN IT!" As it should. Great beer. Glad I found this.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Golden orange with a small head. The aroma is very citrusy, with orange and lemon. There is some caramel an pine resin as well as floral hops. The flavor has a nice sweetness to it that carries the hop flavors well. Some bitterness creeps in a 10seconds or so after swallowing. Nice body and balance. Super tasty too.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a golden orange with a nice off white head that fades and leaves good lacing in the glass. Aroma is lots of mango and apricots, a bit of caramel malt. Taste is very bright and fruity with tons of apricot and a bit of mango, bitter hops and then some sweetness then more hops cleanse the palate, good ipa but stone ipa is still way better.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Liquid gold with a little reddish amber. The citrus and grapefruit punch you in the nose first. Medium boddied with smooth carbonation. Grass, wet hay, grapefruit and lemon assault your tongue and lead the battle against boring brews. This is a great IPA. Very drinkable becasue it isnít obnoxiuosly bitter.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear golden pour that gives half finger of white foam, that quickly dissipates to a persistent ring of lacing. Sugar & lemon aroma, with some grassy notes. Big piney taste on a sugary caramel backbone with a slight copper/metallic finish. Low carbonation with medium body.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
I enjoyed this one, but it was different than i expected. cloudy appearance. has a very apricot/peachy sweet flavor with a big load of dry hop in the finish. i think its just personal taste, because obviously this is a well made beer, but i prefer my IPAs more on the bitter and dry end of the spectrum while this one is more bright and zingy while still having some IBUs. I will have to revisit someday, as iíve only had one 22oz bomber, but as it stands I prefer their Big Eye to this one.

Such a nice IPA. Big, good god this is big. Loads and loads of citrus hops in the flavour and the bitterness. Pours a hazy deep golden yellow with a frothy white top that laces beautifully. Aroma is a beautiful citrus hop flavouring with light fruity and sweet malt. Taste is big beautiful citrus hops and dry bitterness with a resinous mouthfeel. Not an everyday beer but definitely a nice treat.

UPDATED: AUG 27, 2012 the aroma right off the bat was the citrus of the hops and as it warmed some i picked up the apricot and peach...what a wonderful scent to have in this beer...medium bodied and smooooooth...hops do no over power this beer at all..the citrus flavor and the apricot are forefront on this one and the smoothness as it goes down. on the back end you do get a bit of the lemon blended with the bitterness of the hops and it works...very very good beer.

Decent beer. Iím not fond of the amount of apricot however and the beer literally feels like itís evaporating off your tongue at the end. I want the middle to linger. Meh.
