UPDATED: DEC 2, 2007 Tap at Blind Tiger. An above average IIPA - drinks well, good hops and bitterness - good east coast IPA. Nicely done. Rerate: Growler from Bowery Whole Foods. This is a really good beer. Itís not syrupy and cloying like some of the IIPAs Iíve been having lately. It doesnít knock my socks off but itís got a great sour grapefruit finish to it and itís super easy to drink for 8%. Goodbye growler.

Shared by moejuck. Nice malty and really citrusy hops to this. This had a real juicy aroma to it. This is really bitter with maybe some earthiness to it. This had a lot of hoppiness to it. The palate was nice, not to sweet for a IIPA.

Growler shared by Hopdog, thanks. Poured a hazy golden orange body with thin head. Aroma is of light citrus and malt. Light hop taste, sweet, low carbonation. Seemed to have alot of yeast - earthy tones. Soft, subtle with a smooth candy essence to it. Light lacing left.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle shared by moejuck and spector at Columbus tasting 6 - Pours amber with a short offwhite head. Aromas of bitter grapefruit and pine. Flavor is grapefruit, pine, some floral notes with underlying caramel malts. Seemed a little watery to me on the palate and a little unbalanced to the hoppy side..

UPDATED: JUN 11, 2007 Bottle shared by someone at C-Bus 6: Pours a clear orange gold, with a white head. Aroma, muted citrus notes, and some caramel. Flavor, sweet caramel up front, earthy and citrus notes on the finish. There is a lot of bitterness in the flavor, and it does start to overpower everything else.
Re-rate: Much fresher bottle with some big grapefruit and pine notes, with a really nice bitterness on the finish.

Light citrus and earthy hop aroma. Murky golden brown body. Medium palate. The taste is very bitter with some malt--but not well balanced. The hop bitterness controls this beer too much. If you want a straight on hop attack--then this is your beer.
