UPDATED: DEC 22, 2010 Deep amber in color with no carbonation. Nose is just awesome. Big hop aroma despite high alcohol - very surprising. Thick, chewy mouthfeel. Nice spicy hop flavor, followed by alcohol warming. Overall a great beer for one this big.

Bottle. Deep golden color approaching amber. Hops mostly, alcohol (although it was really well masked, given the ABV). Sweet and malty backing. Syrupy body with low carbonation contributing to the effect. I was surprised that this tasted better than Tactical Nuclear Penguin, given the higher ABV and the fact that this is an IIPA.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Wow. 82 proof. But possibly, the smoothest, most complex 82 proof I have ever experienced. You tastes malts, hops, sweet and floral fruity notes, and of course... booze. The warming effect is absolutely wonderful. Itís really like drinking a wonderfully complex belgian quad that warms like a shot of bourbon. I think itís easier to drink than 120 min IPA, which has less than half the alcohol content.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours dark oak. Texture is very thick. Aroma is sticky of alcohol with prunes, raisins and a bit vanilla(?). Taste is sweet and smooth with dried fruit. The alcohol is well hidden in the flavours. Gives a warm feeling of happiness. This was a huge surprise. I bought it online from Brewdog when i saw they had made a new batch and i dont regret spending £40 on this bottle.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 17/20
No head, the body is heavy and oily. The smell is of hops, alcohol and rum. So much that burns the nose. Taste of rum, heavy hops and oil. Drink it as a spirit rather than as a beer. Excellent.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sour, sweaty aroma of ipa and sock reduction. Sickly thick sweety hop and alcohol burn monster. Very, very tasty, even if not terribly good smell, but a really pleasing experience.

Bottle shared at home. Pours golden amber. Oily texture and smells of hops and toffee. Described by the taste panel as a well balanced hop liqueur. Prominent alcohol but not to disturbing. A fantastic IIPA. Meant to be shared.
