Bottle shared by Sean, thanks! Poured a clear amber with a near white head that dissipated to the edges. Aroma had a pine hop note that grew with a slight grain backing. Flavor was pine the grew to become quite intense and almost leave a burn on the tongue. The pine really over powered everything else in the beer.

Bomber from the local. Pours a clear orange amber with a fluffy white head. The aroma is a delight to my hop loving senses. Leafy, citrusy, hop notes spring from the bottle. Crisp and refreshing with steady carbonation. Alcohol not very well hidden in the finish but I’m not complaining.

Bottle, thanks to fata2683, who is my freaking idol! Damn this guy hooks me up with crazy brews... Pours hazy orange, medium white head, very persistent, lovely lacing, if a bit ropey. Nose is quite perfumed, heavy on the florals and "cold cream" aromas, as well as a nice spruce note, and lots of grapefruit, non-specific stonefruits, and a quite "sweet" aroma. Almost a Belgian-style sweetness, but not quite. Flavours follow through, again bringing on the sweetness, but not in a "Dear God this needs WAY less crystal malt" kind of way, more in a sweet grapefruit-cold cream sort of way. Spruce/pine notes in evidence here as well, along with the aforementioned grapefruit, white grapes, and stonefruits. Finish is building malt and grapefruit sweetness. Very sweet for an IIPA, and I’m a man who likes his IIPAs on the drier side. But I enjoy this very, very much. A solid, if extremely unique interpretation of the style. Bonus points for taking a flavour profile I normally detest and forcing me to enjoy it.

bottle pours hazy orange with a medium white head, spotty lacing. Aroma is leafy and pine resin hop aromas, very strong with some toasted malt. Flavor is rich caramel and toasted malts, slightly bready with a solid citrus hop finish. Very drinkable.

Interesting brew. Pours a cloudy amber with a dense white head after I finally got the cork out. The aroma was rather drab with a bit of bread and malty sweetness. The flavor however was quite nice. A subtle sweetness followed by a lemon sourness and finally a peppery end. The finish is dry and leaves a nice after taste. It has a bit of a kick especially as it warms.

UPDATED: OCT 6, 2010 Bottle labeled as Allentown Brew Works. Pours cloudy apricot with white head. Nose of hops, maple, caramel malts and citrus. Taste is very boozy, hop bomb with unbalanced caramel malt and maple pine.

750 c&c from Oak Tree. Cork so tight it tore. Needed to use cork screw on the stub. Pours copper amber with a 3 finger foamy beige head. Principal aroma is grapefruit rind, but some roast caramel hints are there. Full bodied with nearly creamy carbonation. Flavor is floral and grapefruit rind accompanied by some roast malt. This hop is strong. It clings and burns. Not even getting any heat. Then the malt sweet sort of shows up. And is washed out by the grapefruit. Damned fine ale.

I enjoyed this a lot. Has a great body, Powerful hops. A strong citrus/ pine element dominates the flavor.

From the tap poured an amber color with a small amount of head. Strong hoppy flavor with a lasting finish.
