UPDATED: DEC 21, 2005 A simply outstanding beer. Big hops in the nose, with nary a trace of malt. Gorgeous crystal clear pale golden body with thin streams of minute fine-champagne-like bubbles holding up the sticky, lacy head. Medium-heavy body, with enough malts to balance the heavy hop load, but not so much as to sweeten the beer beyond palatability. As balanced as any double IPA i’ve ever had. Knocks the pants off Ruination, and would go a full 15 rounds with Dreadnaught without wavering. Delicious.

Golden and cloudy with a ton of white foamy head. Nice grapefruit and apricot flavor to it. Hoppy and bitter but flows smooth. Good shizz

Fresh clean taste while drinking but leaves strong bitter after taste that lingers for hours.

Pours an amber color with a full bouquet of flowers emitting from it. Taste is crisp but distinctly bitter. The full hops taste overpowers this beer, leaving it all on the palate after the swallow. A mild clove and lasting bitterness in the aftertaste. A good Imperial IPA, just not my style.

A double IPA for a fortnight and a day #12...
Light amber color with mild head and not very carbonated. Of course very hoppy aroma with citrus notes. Very smooth. Initial bitterness gives way to great flavor that quickly diminishes. A bit spicy also. Not too heavy on flavor and it sits a little lower on the palate than I like

Bärnstensfärgad med mellanstort ljust skum! Massor med humle lite malt i doft och smak! Ganska besk! Mycket bra öl!

Draft to taster. Looks good; a semi-transparent deep orange with thin foamy off-white head that dissipates into sticky lacing. Smells solid; hoppy with a fairly big pale malt backbone. Tastes like it smells with a nice, smooth mouthfeel. Good beer.

7-27-13 via Kevin by tap in New York pub. This is a good beer. Likely reminiscent of Mirror Pond IPA but not as good

On tap at Bricks. Pours orange with a tight khaki head that fades to a wispy film and collar. Aroma has resinous pine some herbal nots and malt. Taste is bitter earthy pine hops caramel malt and a very calm warming finish. Palate is medium slightly gritty and dry.

Big bitter bite yet somehow very easy-drinking. Really well-balanced between the malt and hops. Almost comes out with a smokey flavor more than a hoppy one. Love this.
