balanced toward grapefruit and various citrus... but there is definitely some spiciness and an herbal quality that comes about toward the end. Malts play second fiddle.. but are more than present.. quite a bit of caramel and toasty notes.

2006 bottle. Pours a cloudy orange with thick off white head that lasts. The aroma is a strong malt bomb and grass. Medium mouth, lots of malt, hop faded, boozy, held up decently for how old this is.

Balanced for a double. Fruity, grassy, aromatic. Nice body too. Too bad this went away...

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
$13. Bottled april 2008. Drunk march 2012. 1 liter bottle which is a pain in the neck to open. Pleasant but not powerfull smell. Beautiful hazy orange colour but hardly any foam. Sweet malty taste with a noticible but well rounded hoppy bitterness. Very little carbonation (hence the lack of foam) but very pleasant mouthfeel. Overall a very nice IPA that showcases the positive (as well as the negative) sides of bottleconditioned beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy dark gold with an off-white head.
Earthy hop aroma despite it’s cellar time in the ’fridge.
The hop flavors have muted revealing the big malt base.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cloudy orange, thin ring of foam. Surprisingly sweet - a lot of caramel and brown sugar. There are some piney hops, as well, but a lot of sweet. Also, a weird medicinal note. Thanks to Springlicker for bringing this to stevofest!

Pours a deep dark orangish amber color. Aromas of big hop action, sweet malts, and more hops. Flavor has some bready maltsy tastes with nice grapefruit and floral hop taste. This is one hoppy sumbitch.
