This is pretty darn tasty. Some nice hops that have a consistent flavor throughout, though it’s fairly bitter in the finish.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle @ Bibere, Roma
Clear orange golden, with medium, good lasting yellowish head. Aroma is very hoppy (piney, grassy and a little citrussy) and malty. Taste is very hoppy and very bitter but well balanced by a rich dextrinous texture. yeast made a very clean job for a semi-dry finish to put hops and IBUs in front of the rest. A must try for bitter beer fanatics

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
22 oz. bomber served in a Great Lakes Brewing shaker pint. Bottled December 2011.
A: Pours a solid amber color with golden edges and some bright orange notes circulating in the body as well. A one inch bone colored head forms on the pour and leaves cascades of thick down the glass. Great looking beer top to bottom.
S: There is some nice citrus notes, but it is mainly heavy on the bitter pine, resin-like oil and malts.
T: Straight malts and bitter pine. Resiny hop oils attack the tongue and really just drown out any flavor that there could be. I barely taste any citrus.
M: Medium bodied with a bitter finish that attacks the palate and leaves just as quick.
O: I was very disappointed in this beer. It was a just snowball down hill after it looked so good and it could never really recover. It needs to be toned down in the bitter and piney department to let some of the citrus fruits I found in the nose shine. Very unbalanced.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
Quite the IPA! This pours a nice, hazy straw, amber in the glass. Thin to no head, very fizzy when moved, which creates a nice head.
Great hops aromas of pine sap, lemon and tangerine zest, and maybe bit of pear or peach?
Tastes are very well balanced, alot happening, but a big hops bite up front in the bitters.....yeah, that’s about it! The slide is good, maybe a bit sticky, but there is a hint of some smoke....different, but good!
If you are a fan of good, very good IPA’s, you need to try this brew.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22oz bottle: pours a clear deep golden with a clingy-lacing froth of white head. Has a fresh resinous hoppy nose with some light malty sweetness. Starts with pretty good fullness and body with good carbonation and clean sweetness well-balanced with lots of juicy hop flavor and bitterness. Finishes drier and bittersweet. True to style and enjoyable.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Brownish gold, thin but dense beige head. Caramel and grapefruit aroma, pretty much the that the flavors, as well. Seems to kind of be creeping up on DIPA strength...
