3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Smells like grass! Organic and hoppy bouquet. Color is amazing, with minimal head. Very bitter, definitely is a palate wrecker. Luckily, not too lasting. Carbonation seems smaller than it should. An interesting beer, living up to its name.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
On draft at Tampa Bay Brewing Company, poured a golden orange color, aromas of pine, grapefruit and bitterness. Flavors are all hops, grapefruit, and a kiss of citrus. Palate Wrecker is appropriate becasue the hops destroyed my palate.

Gold pour, white head. Aroma is malty, a bit funky(armpits is a good call by hellbilly!)...flavor is maltier than I would expect from the name.

Growler… Clear amber ale with a large, frothy, white head. Good retention. The nose furnishes piney, resiny, earthy hops flanked by hints of caramel, fruitcake and pear. Full-bodied with stinging carbonation. Toffee and caramel malts provide an excellent stage for the tropical, citrusy, rindy hops to show off. Lengthy, bittersweet finish… with the bitterness lingering on and on and on. Growler courtesy of richiesd!

Cask at GBBF 2011. Golden orange color. Pungent juicy hop aroma with mango, elderberry, grapefruit and orange. Firm smooth bitterness in the flavor with complex tropical fruit character. Dangerously drinkable, one of the best double IPAs.

UPDATED: FEB 24, 2015 Cask at the GBBF 2011. Golden with a small white head. Hoppy aroma of grass, perfumed citrus and herbs. Dry and hoppy flavour with grass and pine. Quite bitter and also quite elegant as cask ale. 3.6 rating.
Keg at CBC 2014. Golden with a thick and lasting white head. The aroma is like sniffing a bag of fresh pellets. Citrus, pine and green hops. Sweet hop juice flavour with pine notes dominating. Intense and lingering hoppy, bitter finish

Draught @ Tadg’s, Kyoto. Rated on 09.09.2011
Fresh and hoppy aroma has lots of exotic fruits, but at the same time it is a bit light. Flavour is sweet and rather hoppy with resin and fruits. Good DIPA but too sweet, again.
