3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at Smokehouse. Hazy copper small head. Nose is a bit skunky with some piney notes. Taste of strong hop profile and sound maltiness. Balanced but a bit "old" tasting. Full body and just this side of a true imperial IPA. I would have given it higher marks but this beer seemed a bit dated and not fresh.

a cloudy golden color with a decent hoppy flavor. However I expected something much more. Nothing special as far as an IPA is concerned.

Growler. Poured a hazy gold color with an off-white head.Sweaty hop aroma that covers most of the malt other than some sweetness. Malty start to the flavor that leads quickly to piny hops. Long hop finish. Semi-dry finish with a medium body.

5/20/2009: Bitter Dan Extreme IPA has an inviting citrusy/orange hopped aroma with some lightly toasted toffee malt. This beer has BIG HOPS! The flavor is floral and sugary with a good level of bitterness and chewy toffee malt. It has a good body that is medium to medium-full in weight and goes down smooth. This is a tasty IPA! Double IPA though? No, not quite...
Draught (pint) at Barley’s Smokehouse in Columbus, Ohio. Rating #20 for this beer.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Growler at PilsnerPeter’s Ratebeer Spring Gathering. Deep golden beer. Lightly hazy appearance. The aroma is quite hoppy. Soft resinous character, fruity grapefruit and rich earthy bitterness. Lots of chewy pine resin behind a soft sweet maltiness. Not cloying at all. Rich and bright with a bit of lingering fruity/piny hop bitterness. Really tasty.

Growler at PPRBSG09. Pours a cloudy pale orange with a white head. Aroma of citrus, tropical fruits, and piney hops. Very inviting! Flavor of citrus, pale malts, and a bitter finish. Nice malt backbone. Some harshness in the palate, but this subsides a little as the beer warms. Pretty solid.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Growler: Hazy orange with an off white head. Nice citrusy cascade aroma- a touch resiny with a light pale malt background. Creamy on the palate. Light nutty notes in the flavor with a balancing citrusy and resiny bitterness. A balanced and well executed IIPA.
