3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Smells hoppy, tastes hoppy, looks hoppy? Slightly hazy amber color with a light white head that leaves good lacing. Carbonation is moderately high, about right for the style. Flavor is warm of alcohol and hops, leaves a warming alcohol sensation as it goes down. Not sure of the difference between this and a DIPA.. A nice brew, and well worth trying.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Have had this in the cellar for well over a year. I expected this beer to lack some of itís great hoppiness it had when I had a fresh bottl. However, the aroma certainly indicated that the hoppiness did not diminish. Unfortunately, while it smelled very hoppy, it sure didnít taste very hoppy, at all. The head was great for a year old; it lasted forever and had excellent lacing. While the aroma was much hoppier than malty, the taste was the exact opposite. There was still some hops left and the alcohol had lessened quite a bit.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
I tried. I really did. It looks good, a hazy almond color. It smells okay, but the taste is way too severe to be a drinkable beer. Too bitter even for me. Not as hoppy as I expected, and almost sour. Great brewey, good idea, but the beer doesnít work for me.

Bottle. Pours a cloudy orange-brown color with a light white head. Good lacing. Aroma is very sweet with hints of malt and fruit. Flavor is loaded with alcohol, a lot of hops, and the finish is very lemony. A pretty different beer. Thanks to TimmyK77 for the bottle.

3.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Deep amber pour with a nice one finger head. Strong malt aroma other than that not much there. but the flavor is an ass kicker! Strong malt, raison, figs and a touch of sweetness and hops! Almost has an DIPA character to it. The alcohol is there but it still drinkable. I like this alot!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Amber orange, large white creamy head that leaves a thick lacing. Overpoweringly malty aroma, though the hops do come through nicely. Some notes of caramel. Nice thick bitter taste with lots of citrus hops and amazingly enough, some lovely necter sweetness. The body is initially very smooth and slick with a nice heavy feel. A good alcohol burn kicks in towards the end.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cloudy dark copper pour with an off-white creamy/sticky head. Nice lacing. Floral and citrus aroma with a little melon sweetness to it. Starts off with spicy floral hops which leads to a caramel sweet finish. Medium-full body with a little carbonation. Could go for a drier finish on this one but definitely a good beer overall. Alcohol is well hidden.

Had this at the Beer Cellar, Cincinnati, OH. 11% of delicious alcohol. Copper in color with a medium white head. Hopps flavored. I wonder who designs their bottles?

Not much aroma at all, very surprised. Great hop flavor followed by a huge hit of malty sweetness, very well balanced, medium mouth feel, great beer except for lack of aroma.
