3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. Poured brilliant golden with a sticky, well-retained white head. The aroma picked up fresh orange, pineapple, and grassy hoppage over fairly soft biscuit and honeyed malts.. peppery and assertive on the back of the nose. The flavor found a bitter blend of citrus and grassy hops paired with peppery alcohol throughout.. the base was simple and a touch on the sweet side, and it worked sufficiently.. spicy and a bit boozy on the long, belly-warming finish. Heavier-bodied and the alcohol amplified the bitterness too much in a few places on the palate.. overall a decent flow.. good beer.

35,5 cl bottle @ Viisi Penniš, BBE 01.04.2014
Aroma is heavy with pineapples, caramel and woody notes. Flavour is sweet and somewhat woody with lots of hops, pineapples, gluey notes and a feeling of alcohol in the background. Finishes with herbal tones and more alcohol. Just too boozy.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at Frisco Taphouse: Pours a clear bright golden with a small, clingy-lacing white head. Has a big fresh juicy hop nose with sweet pale malty undertones. Body starts with good fullness and malty sweetness supporting the onslaught of hop flavor and bitterness before a drier, slightly warming bittersweet finish. Dangerously drinkable and loaded with hops.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
"Wow. Loved this one. Wasnít sure how much I would. I love their West Coast IPA...in fat, more so than Palate Wrecker or the Imperial IPA. This one, though, super fresh as it was, packed the right amount of hop-popping aroma and flavor with a big malty sweet backbone without interfering with the fact that itís an IPA. Barleywineish in body, though not too heavy. Pine and citrus on the nose and tongue followed up with a carmel malt and a blast of tropical fruit. Loved it...kept my nose in the bottle all night. One of the best IPA/IIPAs Iíve had this year."

Draft at Hopgeist 2014. Pours a clear golden color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma and flavor have toasted bready malts, earthy, herbal hops, some dank character, moderate bitterness. Good beer, donít know why I hadnít rated this though.
