On tap at Thirsty Monk. Light fruity aroma. Big bitter taste with some citrus fruit. Goes great with my spicy taco.

Bottle. So this is what 149 IBUís feels likeÖ eagerly awaited I finally grabbed a fresh bottle at Brewerís Haven. Great clarity in a golden orange pour and topped with a thick and creamy sandy head. The nose is a little subdued, imo, a blend of citrus, tropical fruit, and pine. Itís potent, but a smooth bitterness. Sort of resembles a syrupy citrus and tropical fruit and piney hop bomb. Lingering hoppy bitters, but not edgy. Itís loaded with hops and bitterness, but it really doesnít scream bitter. Quite drinkable.

Pretty hoppy. Close to hop devil. Actually it's a little more bitter on the finish. I'd definitely get this again.

Huge tropical nose, berries, apple. Rich caramel malt, deep citrus hoppiness, apricot, bread, bittersweet finish. Much smoother than i expected, nice caramel/fruity hop balance.

Bottle while in Florida. Aroma is sweet overripeness, with trop fruit and a little veg. It's nicely balanced with pine, grapefruit bitterness and just a touch of sweetness. Finishes well, nice bitterness. Really nice.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
pours hazy amber orange with a bubbly off white head. aroma is floral, citrus, pine, the hophead trifecta. Wow! The taste is complex. It comes at you in waves. Bitter throughout, but first bright and citrusy, then floral and mildly bittersweet, then into a long bitter finish. Great nasal linger as well. Everything I love in a top shelf IPA. This is one of the best Iíve ever had. Outstanding!

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Wow Green Flash. Never disappoint. Pours liquid copper with a just off white head (lace). Fresh potent aromas:caramel, hay, cereal, roasty, resin, floral, spruce, dough, cheese, alcohol, banana, butterscotch, grape fruit, layers of awesome. Taste is so balanced for such a hoppy beer. Palate is near perfect just a bit over sticky (picking nits here). What an awesome brew.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours golden, thin white head. Aromas of hay, light fruits (apples, grapes). This lives up to its name! Strong bitter - really hits the tongue, medium-light sweet. Medium body, crisp. Not someone who seeks out the high IBUs but this was still a nice brew.

The grand brewmaster has come down from the mountain top to anoint this beer. So good. Every thing is balanced. Aroma is rich caramel malt with just the exact perfect amount of resin hop to match. Flavorís like nose having enough tang to enhance the bitterness, while not enhancing the relative dryness. Again, itís not that itís dry, itís that itís balanced. Palate is perfect; in fact, Iíve found the perfect match- Miss Vickies Sea Salt & Vinegar Chips with TINY dips of this insanely strong horseradish stuff from northern Wisconsin place called Smugglerís Lounge

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a two finger off-white head that fades very slowly leaving a good lace. Crystal clear amber color. Good carbonation and medium bodied. Pine hop nose and flavor is pine hops with a decent amount of caramel/brown sugar. High ABV is hidden. $4.85 for a 12oz bottle from Bertís Better Beers Hooksett, NH.
