3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle via Chuck. The beer pours to a nice orange copper caramel colored body with a creamy white head. Nice lacing. The aroma is nicely grapefruity, piney, and creamy caramel. The flavor is quite bitter. The palate is extremely bitter. Lingering oily resin feel. Dry. A good beer but seems more bitter than Ruination.

copper colored pour hints of orange full white head nice lacing. Full grapefruit aroma hints of nice carmels nd is well balanced against a big grassy hop. Palate is thick and oily nice coating. Flavor is a piney resin quite bitter a very dry grasslike finish. Some verylight carmels come out more w/ warmer temps. A very decent quite bitter IPA.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy straight amber, an honest sheet of off-white head mostly lasts atop it all. Well displayed earthy, caramelly malts with a toasted snap manages to act as the foundation of the beer, but the spirit remains the not so delicate hop bill that appears slightly tannic with full citrusy aromas that continue woody and grassy. Rather citric bitterness, but the acidity is kept at bay by the interactive malts. Very good IPA, in the rules of the art.

UPDATED: NOV 22, 2006 [Bottled at Stockholm Beer Festival] Hazy pale amber, minimal head. Rich sweaty lychee aroma. Dryish with clean mouthfeel. Aromatic and over-hoppy, yet light and drinkable. Lingering very bitter finish.

Thanks Robin, for this one. Light amber-orange coloured with a large white head. Sweet hoppy aroma, with some smaller malty touches. Full sweet hoppy-bitter fruity taste. Finish is bitter but fruity, light roasted. Not bad.
