12oz bottle, courtesy of ryan. Thanks, dude! Pours a hazy, orangish-yellow color; thin off-white head with patchy lacing. Lots of orange and mineral bitterness in the nose; nicely dry, minerally, and dense. Full mouthfeel: loads of resiny, chewy bitterness, dense citrus and jaw-clenching hop numbness; excellent stuff and highly reminiscent of PtE. Lengthy finish: mineral and dense, chewy, resiny bitterness; lasting numbness, nicely dry.

Serving: 12 oz. bottle. Appearance: Deep gold with a small, foamy, white head. Aroma: Deep orange and pine hop nose. Taste: Caramel, orange, pineapple, tropical fruit, and a stiff bitterness. Palate: Medium carbonation with a medium, slightly dry mouthfeel. Long, bitter finish with some tropical fruit lingering on the palate. Overall: A pretty damn good IPA!

Have had on tap and from the bottle, and itís great either way. When I had it on tap, it was a bit hot/astringent, but the bottle was better - might have been age.

UPDATED: MAR 11, 2010 1/2 a shared 12oz. bottle. Pours a beer-infused piss golden yellow, surprising considering the quality of this brew. Nose is fresh hops, piney, citrus. Taste is excellent with slightly sweet, smooth pine hop flavor and small floral accent. Slight carbonation and 9.4abv is dangerously hidden. Goes down very easy and aftertaste has me wanting more. I could keep my nose in this glass all night...this is what a DIPA should smell like. YUM!

This is probably the best double IPA I have had since Surly 16 grit. Copper color. Little carbonation. Big hop aroma with grapefruit and citrus. More of the same in the flavor, but the alcohol is noticeable in the aftertaste. A sweet hop flavor. Very nice.

Has the expected piney citrus aroma mixed with some fruity aspects and a strong alcohol presence in both smell and taste. Itís not quite as hoppy as expected, because of a lemony alcohol dominating. The hops are tangy and bittersweet. The alcohol stirs in the stomach at the end.

swoopjones (6909) - Buffalo, New York, USA - JUL 28, 2009
On tap at Coles Buffalo NY. Pours a pretty light golden. Piney citrus hop aroma along with some booziness. Nice pine hop explosion. Resiny sticky hops. Full mouthfeel. well done

Soonah (1120) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - JUL 24, 2009
From coyotehunter via trade. Poured a slightly hazy golden color with a short white head. Sticky lacing. The aroma is resinous pine hops, light citrus and a whiff of alcohol. The flavor is pretty much the same thing, aggressive, sticky pine hops that find very little balance with softer caramel malts or citrus. Medium bodied, almost oily mouthfeel. Slightly unchecked alcohol heat. Just OK.

Pours blonde with a small head. The aroma is kind of alcohol forward but not in a bad way, it mixes well with the citrus and pine, just a touch of caramel balances this one out. Flavor is well balanced between sweet and dry, there is plenty of mango with some citrus and a good hop bitterness.
