1.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Whoa, seriously this is some horrible stuff. I was fooled into believe Blue Frog would surprise me with this beer because of the fancy bottling and label, but holy shit was I wrong. I mean itís not that bad that I canít drink it but still some real bunk stuff. The beer is a hazed orange with thick white foaming for a head. The aroma is similar to dish wash soap and so is the flavor. I feel like Iím drinking a glass of tea with soap in it. Nothing else I feel like typing outóIím done.

Poured hazy yellow with big white head. Aroma of hops, citrus, and alcohol. Flavor was of hops with some citrus hints escaping the alcohol burn. Kind of a harsh finish but drinkable.

Bartzillaís Death Metal Beer Day Jun 07. Shared with Bartzilla, Naven, WeeHeavySD and others. I canít complain too much since i didnít pay for it, but this wasnít a good beer. Yellowish. Harsh alcohol, not a lot of real hop flavor. ugg.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
750mL bottle purchased at BevMo in Vacaville, CA for $9. Musty, rubbery, ethanolic aroma with a little earthy hoppiness present, too. Kind of strange from an IIPA. Kind of smells like an English version. Moderately hazy orange body with a medium off-yellowish head present. Wow, this is very medicinal, sticky, cloying, and roasted. Boiled vegetables are also present in the middle with some ethanol burn to finish. Hops are majorly subdued. Wow, the mouthfeel to this is probably one of the worst mouthfeels Iíve experienced. This is signficantly flawed. I wish I could get my money back.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
750mL bottle. Hazy light brown-orange with a large rocky white head. Ruddy, earthen malt aroma with acrid vegetal hops and a sharp chemical component. Muddy, somewhat toffee-esque malt component. Earthen hops with a soil-encrusted grassy character. Plasticy, phenolic finish with a bitter yeast taste and residual dirty hop flavors. Mouthfeel is medium, somewhat dry.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
750ml bottle via trade with brock_landers! - Pours amber with a fair offwhite head that stays well and leaves some lace. Aromas of slight citrus over grains and slight caramel. Flavor is citrus mostly and a little pine slight caramel and grain behind it but harsh carbonation and not good balance leads this to not be all that good of an IIPA..

UPDATED: JUL 29, 2007 Beer 16 of Bartzillaís Death Metal Beer Tasting 6/30/07. Shared with Bartzilla, Naven, BikesandBeer and others. This was too harsh and really not worth a fifth of what I paid for it at Bevmo. Garbage.

750 ml bottle from Holiday Wine Cellar - Pours a hazy golden color with a one and a half finger thick off white head. Light lacing. Has a light citrus hop and soapy aroma. Flavor is light malt and hops. Medium body. What a rip off. This beer is not worth the $9 I paid. Donít waste your money.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from BevMo. Pours a hazy amber color. Slightly sour aroma with some hoppiness. Peppery hoppiness. Not very balanced. Nor is it super bitter. Doesnít taste like a DIPA. More like a subpar BSA. Lousy as a 2IPA. A little below average as a strong ale of some sort.
