On tap at stone day before thanksgiving. Nose sweet strong iipa. Orange w dense head. Taste is nicely balanced if not actually plain for an iipa. Bit of sweetness out back and a nice clean finish. Can definitely taste the warming alcohol.

[Keg @ Stonefest] Clouded orangey amber hue. Pineapple citrus hop aroma. Well spiced hoppy palate, mild grapefruit and citrus, biscuity malt backbone. Not too agressive for a DIPA but still good.

Thanks to Popkas for getting this out my way. Served in a Mikasa tulip. Reviewed from notes. Pours moderate copper-orange color with a good, creamy white head and a bunch of nice, spotty lacing on the way down. The nose carries a good amount of tropical fruit and resinous pine hops. There is a bit of bready and lightly caramelized malt in the background. The flavor brings a nice hoppiness and also contributes a solid malt backing. A bit more than I’d like, though the hops are still front and center. Medium body with good carbonation and a nice bitter finish. Thanks again for this--a very solid DIPA. Serving type: growler

Sample @ Brewpub
Pours clear golden with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, caramel, citrus, grape and alcohol. Taste is medium to heavy sweet and medium bitter. Body is full, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.

tap at brewpub-pours bright orange with a big soapy foamy white head. real smooth nose is lite citrus but pretty sweet maybe a bit old batch. sweet hoppy flavors but real soft and pillowy if thats the word to use for the palate. alcohol well hidden here. long citric finish with some lite pine. slightly warmth on the finish but doesnt take anything away from this beer. a pretty decent IIPA oh, and Christina Rocks (and she is hot!)!!

Another one shared by the Chicago crew on 6/4/11. I’m gonna agree with jrallen34 on his review. This one had some good qualities, earthy hops and malt backing but it just didn’t to be all there. Was glad I got to try it though.

On cask at the PP Carlsbad Real Ale festival. I heard this one has had a recipe change. Too bad. It pours rather dark orange with a small off white head. The aroma is piney and complex with wood and peach. The flavor is piney bitter with some peach. Kind of harsh actually, but not bad.

I was looking for a bigger aroma on this one than their regular IPA, but it is actually more subdued. Harsh bitter finish without some of the big malty backbone that I expect from a IIPA. Interesting, but takes a backseat to their other IPA.

On tap @ Breakwater. Golden amber with an off white head. Aroma of caramel, citrus, flowers and wet paper. The flavor is lots of sweet caramel malt with a harsh bitterness and a metallic finish. I’m pretty sure this was very old when I had it, tasted like it had potential but the hops had faded leaving a harshness. Would like to try again fresh.
