Only 120 precious barrels were brewed, adding more than half a ton of extra malt and twice the amount of Amarillo hops, so prepare your self for a full sensory explosion. The double dry-hop addition elevates the grapefruit-like aroma and flavor to an outrageous intensity, while the added malt raises the alcohol level from 7% all the way to 10% by volume.

Stine (1760) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 5, 2007
UPDATED: DEC 23, 2007 On tap at the Muddy Pig. Golden yellow, hazy pour produces some pineapple and orange aromas, alcohol already apparent. Flavors of canned peaches and wine cooler, alcohol imposing itself with progressive confidence. It’s not immensely complex or balanced, but the pleasant citrus melodies of Amarillo are not fully suffocated. Stylistically typical.

On tap at Track 84 in Providence. Orangish copper wtih clear white head. Grapefruit, citrus and pine notes against a sweet malt backbone. Tastes much the same, which is good...but not overwhelming.

The aroma has citrus and pine like hops with sweet caramel malt to balance. The appearance is light amber and gold with a two finger head. The flavor is like the aroma. It’s basic but good with bitterness up front followed by sweetness then a final bitterness. The palate is thin. I feel as though this one is a little too thin and the brewer was playing it safe by keeping the IBU below the level of other IIPA’s. Never the less, I did enjoy this one.

22 oz bottle. Light amber/orange in color. Aroma is a moderate amount of citrus, bready and caramel malt. Taste is moderately hoppy and bitter, citrus, with a pretty good malt backbone. Thought this one could use a bit more hop complexity. Solid though.

Clear orange body with small white head. Nose was citrus, spices and yeast. Thin body, but a good ipa, not overly hoppy, which is good. Nice brew, but not an awesome duble, IMHO.

I’m really enjoying this one. the aroma is piney, with citrus notes. it pours wonderful with a golden rod color and an off white color. taste is pine tree, malt and all around bitterness that is balanced. the Alcohol is also really well hidden, this does not taste like a 10% ABV

22oz bottle thanks to McBackus. Pours a hazy straw color with hints of orange and gold. Wispy white head. Aroma is dry and spicy with strong hoppy grapefruit. Ruby red grapefruit is predominate with a hint of sweetness. Malt body is negligible, mostly hops in this. Strong citrus rind and ruby red grapefruit. Medium body, creamy with a semi-dry finish. Good.

hopscotch (10612) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAR 1, 2007
UPDATED: AUG 20, 2007 Rating #3300... Bottle purchased at Bodega Blue... Clear, orange/gold ale with a large, creamy, white head. Excellent retention. Grapefruit, tropical fruit aroma; even a little white pepper. Big, bicuity malt flavor is dwarfed, but not entirely muted, by the ultra-bitter, heavy-handed Amarillos. Full-bodied with subtle carbonation. Lengthy, biscuity, bitter finish.

Bomber. Light gold color. Sexy head. Nice nose of citrus fruits, weeds and herbs. Flavor is nice. It’s hoppy in a good way, but the malt character seems to be severely lacking and there isnt much balance. That being said, as a versatile beer drinker who appreciates hoppy beers, I enjoy the flavor. Body is also very thin, disappointing. That being said, still a pretty tasty brew.
