On tap at the local option; pour is a beautiful gold with a huge pillowtop head in this tulip. Ridiculous cobweb lacing as well. Big herbal, pines, citrus hop profile on the nose. I feel like this is one of those brews with diminishing returns, however. The malt backbone doesn’t cover it for me; its a nice hopped up IPA, for sure, and a nice variation obviously, but it seems too straightforward, I think.

The aroma is sweatsock, floral, earth. The appearance is translucent amber, off white head. The flavor is caramel, bread, flowers. The finish is resin, floral. Medium/thick in body. Very good, not as good as Yang.

Verified this is the 8%. Bottles from Smith’s and Capone’s. Wow, this is my third cherry popper of the evening. After tonight, I’m going to be looser than Lindsey Lohan after an L.A. Laker post-game party. On to the review. The pour is turbid pumpkin orange colored, toward canary but promarily orange, with a huge fluffy 4-finger white head. The nose is juat astounding, a medley of intense tangeriney and pineaplly citrus, heavy hops, black pepper, honeydew, and honey. The taste is rich, veru complex, with an initial heavy caramel malty flavor mixed with the huge IBU load, with heavy black pepper, tangerine, pineapple, chardonnay, and some star fruity notes. The palate is dense and absolutely delicious. This one is incredibly good, and it is not a stretch to place it in the upper echelon of IIPAs. I suspect it would fare quite well for itself in a blind tasting with the world’s finest. Get ya some, and do it before it’’s gone.

Draft. Pours orange with an off white head. Piney hoppy aroma with floral and light citric notes, and pale malts. The flavor has floral and piney hops, light sweet notes and a hint of citrus. Solid.

Draft at RnH with Andrew, Streets, and Kyle. Poured a hazy, amber orange body with nice white lacing. Aroma is super fresh pine and grassy hops. Mouthfeel is medium with notes of fresh citrus, spicy pine, grass hops.

garza (567) - Oslo (NO), Caracas (VE), VENEZUELA - APR 24, 2011
Pours golden orange and clear colour with a creamy white head. Aroma of fruits like citrus and peaches. Spices, hops and grass hints too. Fruity notes in the taste too with medium sweetness and a lovely medium to heavy bitter touch. Medium body, creamy, soft carbonation, and a nice bitter dry finish. Very good.

Sampled at rattle. Awesome iipa, rich and spicy... Not overly aggressive for 8%. Would get this again.

First US rating! Draught at RnH. Slightly hazy med orange with a creamy one finger off-white head with good lacing and retention. Big bright juicy fruity pineapple and ripe orange hop nose up front with just a little sweet malts, a la the cotton candy hops I speak of from time to time. Just a little alcohol present. Flavor continues with big fruity hops and taking on a light passionfruit sweetness, def sweeter than the super dry DIPA/IPAs I prefer, but since it isn’t cloying and full of crystal malt at all, I can get behind it. A bit herbal in nose and flavor as it warms. Semi-dry finish, bitterness peaked at a 5-6, just a little alcohol warmth noted. Nice job with the dry-hopping! Medium full body with light smooth carbonation. Pretty tasty beer, I enjoyed this a lot more than dookie.

On tap ath Schouskjelleren. Malty, nutty, yet dry oak in the aftertaste. Smooth and edgy at the same time.
