GABF 2006: Clear light golden color with off-white head. Hop foward aroma of pine and citrus with a good malt base. Again flavor pine and citrus with a malt back bone stiff enough to balnce the beer.

Draft at the Blind Tiger. For aroma, there is a noticable amount of earthy malt, citrus/grapefruit hops, pine hops, and floral hops. The flavor is very much of the floral hops, and is slightly above average for the style.

At the brewery. Good looking clear amber-orange with an orangy head. Nose of fruity hops (grape, apple, pear, some citrus but not as overpowering as in other IIPAs). Would have liked stronger hop aroma. Flavor much the same, quite bitter with a long dry finish.

Good, full bodied beer. Nce thick palate. Full of citrus hops, wish it was a little sharper on my tounge, still extremely enjoyable.

Draft at Capital Grille in Fredricksburg, VA. Pours a hazy orange with an off white head. Aroma of citrusy hops. Medium bodied but a tad lighter on the mouthfeel. Pale malts take a back seat to a simple tangerine and grapefruity bitterness. Simple but good. My notes are not very detailed on this one.

Tap. Moderate malt aroma of roasted, heavy hop smells of pine, citrus peel and herbs, light soap for the yeast, and hints of date and alcohol. Head is frothy/fizzy, white, with good sticky lacing and is mostly lasting. Color is slightly hazy amber/orange. Flavor starts moderately sweet and acidic, then the long finish is moderately acidic and heavily bitter. Palate is medium, oily with a lively carbonation and a moderately alcoholic finish. The flavor is just okay, but the hop profile is superb in the aroma of this DIPA.

Cask Festival at Chelsea Pier. The pour was a hazy orange color. The Aroma was nice, peaches, grapefruit, other citrus, excellent. The flavor was citrus, grapefruit, caramel, toffee, excellenrt balance between sweet and bitter. The finish was a rsiny hop flavor not noticeable previously. Medium mouthfeel, thin for the style. Very Good overall.

Chelsea Cask Festival: Pours slight cloudy, yellow copper/ orange amber. Strong nose of young fruits and citrus, slightly metallic. The fruits and citrus come back in the taste enhanced with warming esters. The hops are much more noticeable on the finish... a very surprising and complex brew, changing from front to back. Would really like to try this on tap as well.
