3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Several occasions, most recently growler. Poured orange-amber with some white head. Aroma of grapefruity hops primarily, with a little malt as well. Taste is slighlty different, with an initial burst of hops that fades into malty sweetness. That was essentially what kept this beer from being 4+; needed more bitterness. Moderate mouthfeel and more hop presence in the finish. Definitely a quality IIPA.

Had this at a restaurant in New Jersey. Great hops with a lot of fruit. Extremely smooth in the palate.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured from a 22oz. bottle into a stemmed glass.
The color is a clear orange/gold with quite a large amount of foamy head and some really nice lacing.
The smell is heavy green hops. Earthy hops just right up front with a grassy flavor that takes me back to those summer days of cutting the grass.
The taste is very hop forward. The citrus hops is right there hitting you with both barrels. There is a sweet malt flavors just behind the hops and everything is amped up to eleven.
The feel is quite easy once the hops gives way to the even feel of this beer. It is just about as good as you can get with a IPA in stereo.

Bottle. Pours a very slightly hazy pale orange, medium off0white head. Nose is sweet hops and fruits. Flavor profile is dominated my notes of peach, pineapple, lime, hops and malt, subtle touch of caramel in the background. Everytime my wife kissed me last night, she said I tasted like candy, NICE ! Nice smooth, slightly bitter finish, hope I can get more of this in the future.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: MAR 15, 2009 Draught @ Beer Table, Brooklyn. Pours lightly hazy dark copper with a creamy off-white head and solid lacing. Nose is resiny pine hops and sweet caramel. Taste is sweet caramel malt, with the resiny hop character emerging early and persisting throughout. Citrus comes through as well, though secondary to the resiny bitterness that seems to come through as the primary hop note. Finish is rich and just a tad dry, with a lingering bitterness. Full bodied and moderate carbonation. Solid offering.

RnH: Pours a clear amber leaving a very thin head ring. The nose is super sweaty, oily... great hops scent. The taste is complex and really enjoyable. Strawberries?! Deep sugars, some cooked qualities... nice brew.

Growler/tap. Wow! This is what a dipa should be. Pour is hazy amber with lacy white head. Aromas strong of pine, citrus, and sweet malt. Flavor is all hops. Not dry to finish and I can’t find anything wrong with this one.

Thanks to dchmela. Smells like an ipa, looks like an ipa. Really nice evergreen forest taste, along with citrusy burn. Really good. Get it again.

UPDATED: DEC 19, 2007 On tap at Hop Devil. Extremely hoppy aroma and taste. Pine, floral, citrus, grass, and perfume; the whole hop spectrum is here. Slight fruity flavor is there as well. Bitter finish. This beer knows exactly what it wants to be.
Re-rate. Growler from Whole Foods. Malt is more prominent and beer is a little more fruity. Excellent.
