4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
On tap. Color...pitch black with a massive tan head. Nose..deep, dark chocolate, bonfire ash, burnt molasses and vanillin. Palate...full, opulent and coating with plenty of oaky bitterness, and mounds of bittersweet chocolate. The mid palate is dry, earthy and loamy with cassis and and toasted hazelnuts. The finish is lengthy, mildly bitter and oozing with cocoa mass.

Orange, demarera and hops on nose, big dry hoppy bite with citrus returning in a huge dry hop and alcohol finish. Stunning stuff!

Descent IIPA, had late in my round of drinking at Founders, so it may have taken away a little from this brew. Very grapefruity, some pineyness, huge hops. Alcohol makes itself qutie noticeable, but still pretty rock solid.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
My notes aren’t very clear on this one ... I had sampled many others prior so take with a grain of salt. Dark amber in color with a quickly diminishing head. Nice hoppiness amd lots of it. A little too syrupy. Still a very good beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
growler form brewery, hop / alcohol nose, clear brown / amber body with a white ring of a slightly lacey head, flavor has a hoppy intenseness, with an alcohol finish, a good iipa that still has a little ways to go to reach perfection.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
draft at 2004 MSBF. small light brown head on an amber body. average malt profile, but super-hoppy candy-like aroma. tons of hops--i would venture to guess that it is hoppier than DFH 90 minute IPA, but less balanced. good beer nonetheless.
