4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours polished brass in color with a good sized head. Nice retention. Intense high note hop aroma. Pine, earth, and cannabis. Check that, cannabis, then pine and earth. Bitter attack, then a medium sweet flavor that is quickly drowned out by an ultra-bitter mid-palate. Medium body, average carbonation, creamy-oily texture, and an endless oily, bitter finish. This is just as I remember. Insanely hopped extreme beer. A must try for hop lovers.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle... Something like 13 days old when consumed and poured clear amber/golden with a moderate white head. Tick mouthfeel, bitter, earthy hops. Quite resinous with pepper spice, citrus, and pine. A definite west coast IPA. Super heavy on the hops of course. Some malt sweetness for body and balance.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz bottled December 11, 2012...very fresh. Served at around 40-45F.
Pours clear amber with a thick two finger off-white head that sticks around forever leaving nice sheets and spots of lacing behind.
Aroma is big and dank hops, marijuana, onion, grapefruit, some pine and cat pee, dankity dank. Very good strength.
Flavor is chewy resinous hops, grapefruit, onion, marijuana, quite a big caramel malt backbone as well, needed to try to balance the biting bitterness. As it warms the bitterness subsides somewhat and the big malts come forward more. Decent alcohol bite too.
Mouthfeel is full-bodied for an IPA, sticky, good carbonation.
Pretty good dank DIPA. At first the bitterness was huge and biting...settles down quite a bit as the malts really kick in. I love unbalanced super-bitter IPAs and while this is quite good, it could have been better and lived up to its name more.

12oz bottle--->tulip. Pours a clear orange/amber with very little head and light lace. Aroma is dank herb, grapefruit, and heavy pine. Tastes exactly like it smells and is pretty damn bitter (in a GREAT way). Nice crisp palate with just enough carbonation. Not exactly a "palate wrecker", but a great west coast hop bomb. Love this thing.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
It poured a hazy amber color with an off-white head. The aroma was of citrus and hops. The taste was grassy, fruity, citrusy hops that were balanced well. Very tasty.

12/29/12. 12oz bottle from Grassroots Natural Market. Clear amber pour with a nice off-white head that cuts to a ring but laces in nice rings and sheets. Big dank, bitter hop aroma with a nice malt backing that hints at caramel. Really big hop kick in the flavor as well, plenty bitter, with lots of pine, dankness, citrus, caramel, and more. Very tasty and goes down very well for a double IPA. Tasty!

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
355 ml. bottle sampled thx. to Kraddel. Pours a hazy orange, real amber with a very thick & creamy white head. Smell is quite lovely & rather supreme above taste in my perspective, big American hops, lots of citrus here, lemon peel, fruity, creamy, USA hoppy with berries. Taste is quite bitter, USA fruity citrus hops, creamy lemon peel, berries going into a quite harsh floral-esque finish, strong grapefruit, some caramel in the start but finish is quite heavy on the previously mentioned bitter flavours, strongly hoppy stuff. Fuller, creamier body. Quite good & enjoyable but a bit hard to finish even at the end of my sample which was less than the full bottle – quite nice but cannot imagine drinking a lot of this.

22 oz bottle thanks to Ben @ Casey’s: Pours light yellow, nice white head. Aroma of citrus and pine. Smells like a spruce forest floor. Beautiful, oily, smooth as hell. Sweet hop flavor, not entirely bitter. Rich!
