4.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: FEB 19, 2014 Pours dark copper with 1 and 1/2 inch off-white head. Loads of lacing. Aroma is mostly yeast. Little bit of hops and malt. Not a typical IIPA aroma. Flavor is also very yeasty but the resiny hop flavor is also well pronounced. Complex flavor with dark fruit, spices, and caramel, Heavy body which is a big plus for this beer. Chewy mouthfeel. Boozy on the finish. Astringency in the aftertaste. Very good beer, however, I think it would be better suited in the american strong ale category due to the lack of hop aroma and bitterness associated with IIPAs. Great beer, just mis-categorized.

Very foamy pour with large head and strong lacing. Also had sheets of sediment from the bottle, really a downer for the appearance. Cloudy orange pour, strong alcohol content, but no burn. Leaves quite a hoppy and long lasting after taste partially from the sediment.

Bottle from Breeze Thru, cannot believe never have rated. Fly in the ointment is a September 7th, bottle date. A copper orange pour with a foamy white head leaving nice spotty lacing all around the glass. Aroma has over layered hops, pine, citrus, lemon. Smells dry hopped and dry hopped. Taste is of citrus, grapefruit, pine with some chewy resin, and some toffee back. Medium bodied and almost syrupy with a bit of an alcohol presence. Finishes to the bitter side of bittersweet and over layered. Solid effort, and still hoppy. Did not love the flavor combination, but decent. 13.9

Guest tap at Fat Headís in Portland, RBSG. Medium gold, dense creamy head (looks like a nitro head). Sweetly malty, lightly toasty, with stonefruit hops, a bit of citrus. I donít mind the maltiness, but itís too sweet for my liking, even despite the bitterness.
