3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On Tap at Vine and Barley, Color is a amber hue with decent head retention. Im not getting a lot in the nose. There are some hop notes but not a lot. Taste is nice with a good amount grapefruit. I didnít think this beer was still being brewed so I wonder how old it is because the hop profile seemed lighter than than when I had it a year ago.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: MAR 24, 2012 On tap at Good Beer. Piney aroma. This is an astringent, resiny IPA, but it feels a bit thin. Pretty dry and woody, with a nice autumnal feel, making it appropriate for the beginning of autumn. A little orange peel and some sharp hops. It is hard to believe the ABV is over 8. This seems like a regular good IPA to me. If this is Mr. Oliverís killer IPA, then Iím still not a convert.

Poured golden with a quickly dissipating thin head. Aroma was pine needles and sweet malt. Flavor was too malty for my taste for an IPA. I just really donít see all the fuse over Brooklyn brewery. Pretty below average in my opinion.

Sampled at Music City. Sweet and big bodied double IPA. Smooth hop and malt profile makes it incredibly easy to drink. Deep orange color and a citrus sweetness that is very enjoyable.

Depp yellow - only slightly cloudy maybe. Good head. Tons of fruit and flower aroma and flavor takes over the malt. A slight sweetness is the only give-away that there might be a decent amount of alcohol in it.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Poor Phils in Oak Park, IL. displaying a clear, golden hue, and average, white head foam that gradually diminished to a ring & film, and left some dots and dashes of lacing. I liked that the nose was strictly resin and spruce, with no noticeable citrus, a nice change from most American IPAs. The flavor balanced the medium hop bitterness with some good malt content, with the lingering bitterness coupling up with some pleasant dryness into the finish. Nice, but didnít sense the 8.2% abv or the body of a DIPA.
