3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hard resinous, chipped pine and dried citrus peel aroma. Clear orange, could be any IPA....Massive bitter grapefruit flavor, some almost sweet contrast as well. What I really can not get over, having not had this for some time, is how smooth it is. By far the easiest drinking double IPA around. As such, it’s Harpoon’s deadliest beer.

12 oz bottle This was tasted during Thanksgiving 2012. This is an amazing ale. The color is a clear golden color. The ale had a small head that dissipated. The IPA had a powerful bitterness balanced by a sweet malt backbone. This is truly an excellent ale the bitterness is so balanced. The cabonation is average an the medium body ale had a wonderful finish with bitterness that was experienced in the upper mouth.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle says best by 10-15-12 so I’m a bit late on this guy. Malty and a bit spicy aroma. Fruity, lightly mango and some peach. Perfect look for style, hazy amber gold. Good lacing on a pillowy beige head that settles. For such an enormous beer this is ver y drinkable, bitterness is there throughout, but it displays slight pine amongst juicy apricot and peach. Great imperial iPa. Big and juicy.

Hops! Lots of great hop bittering, though you don't get as much aroma as you might think. Pours a great clear amber, light head. A nice touch of dryness on the finish

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle purchased at Beverage World in Ft. Oglethorp Georgia. Clear orange color, good head, sticky lace. Smells a lot less hoppy than I would prefer and the taste soon follows suit. This is a very "balanced" IPA but that is not why I buy double IPA’s. I don;t want nor need balance, I need hops that will rip my face off. Still, this was not bad at all and the alcohol was well integrated so I had no problem finishing this myself.

Tried this in the bottle at the Flying Saucer in Addison, TX. Slightly sweet malty start with a huge hoppy punch in the taste bud finish!

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Pours a light copper color with a white head that quickly dissipates. Aroma is grapefruit and tropical fruits. Flavor is grapefruit, mango, tropical fruits with a caramel cake malt finish. Light carbonation with a little sweetness on the mouthfeel with bitterness coming in from the hops. The bitterness does not linger.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a clear and darker golden color with a really thick white head. Nice bit of hoppiness to the nose of this, while the taste has a bit of that hoppy bitterness. Not a bad drink, but not great.
