4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Thanks for Phil, got this a day after bottling. FRESH! I don’t know that I’ve had anything this piney in my life accept for when I got sap stuck on my fingers as a kid. Very bitter and palate wrecking up front. Palate manages to stay thin and not to sweet which at 10% is a miracle. Finish is bitter and quick. A bruiser, but a well executed one.

UPDATED: NOV 7, 2012 Agree with below. Tasted again tonight at the brewery. The nose on this one is off the chain. read the rest from below. Love this beer.
Completely from memory. Got a growler of this stuff directly from the brewery back when they were still allowed to fill them (we gotta work on getting that changed!) This was one of my favorites in the single hop IIPA series. Full of hop goodness and nicely balanced. As I remember I didn’t think the high alcohol content really came through and it was an easy drink.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Very strong odor and also very strong flavor. One of them clearly the best beer I ever drank. Good taste and air and does not make me disappointed. 10% makes no difference.

Väldigt god. Smak och doft av tropisk frukt, banan, örtig. Välbalanserad, torr, frisk och fruktig med en markant grapebeska. Enda minuset är att alkoholen slår igenom en aning.

Pine, floral, citrus from the hops and maybe some dried fruit , somewhat thin on the palate and with a slight alcoholic warming afterwards. I’ve had better double IPAs.
