Suttree (5260) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 30, 2006
Dark copper, big foamy beige head. Faint aroma - woodsy/resiny, then brown sugar. Very tasty - Earthy at first, but also some sweet notes creep in - molasses, mostly - then a big pine/spruce finish. A bit flowery at the end. Surprisingly quaffable, given its 10% abv. Purchased at Greenlife, Asheville.

SDalkoholic (2179) - Linda Vista, California, USA - SEP 29, 2006
Has a roasty sweet caramel malt aroma with a backdrop of hops. Nice little film across a dense looking mahogany. The drink holds a strong malt backbone with plenty of flavors of toffee, toasted malt, oat wheat bread, and rye. A small hop character to this double IIPA and leaves behind an aftertste of hot chocolate that has gone cold or of coffee that had a ton of creamers poured into it. Very well masked ABV.

kujo9 (1093) - North Ridgeville, Ohio, USA - SEP 29, 2006
22 oz bomber: Medium amber w/ a lasting light beige head. Crystal malt, light butterscotch, citrusy/piney hops hit the nose all at once. Rye comes in as it warms a bit as does toasty malt and lighlty nutty aromas. Piney and nutty seems to get stronger as it warms, probably attributed to the rye malt additions. Very fruity w/ non distinct fruity esters. Flavor is very sweet up front. Balances well toward the back end w/ a semi sweet finish. Herbal hoppiness toward the finish and aftertaste with a restrained fruitiness. Strong caramel malt presence throughout with rye riding shotgun. Big, thick, and chewy body, but doesn’t really seem syrupy and very smooth, well hidden alcohol, and medium low carbonation. Pretty good beer! A little light on the hops for a double IPA more like a barleywine, but still a very good beer.

JCapriotti (1379) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 28, 2006
Clear reddish-orange. Coating creamy light beige head. Aroma is odd. Very malty, and reminscent of something i can’t put my finger on. Like some sort of sweet lavendar or something. Maybe a purple or blue aromatic / Crayola marker. Some sweet wood too. Taste is kind of the same. Very smooth and very sweet, but not in a cloying way.

hotstuff (4269) - Indiana, USA - SEP 28, 2006
Bottle. Large smooth ivory head that was mostly lasting, very poor lacing, visible carbonation, transparent, and a ruby hue. Nose was malty, caramel and hoppy. Flavor was sweet, bitter, caramel, malty, and very hoppy tasting. Mostly smooth with a slight tingliness in the mouthfeel.

Terminus (3283) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - SEP 26, 2006
bomber-copper clear amber with a forathy off-white verging on tan head. nose of sweet hops, light cinnamon, estery alcohol, but lots of sweetness here-mixed berries. flavors are sweet, caramel malts, candy sugar, piney hops, and some alcoholic fruit. lots of pine on the finish that dries it out a little, but not enough in my book. huge alcohol kick on the finish. not bad but definately a little better than Stone 10!!!

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 25, 2006
Pours with a deep amber-red body with a thick head and lots of lacing. It’s sweet and malty with a note of caramel to start and finishes hoppy and bitter with a note of pine. Full bodied, smooth, a touch dry and a little warming.

cbkschubert (2900) - BFE, Arizona, USA - SEP 24, 2006
22 oz. bottle - Pours a deep amber color with a good size light tan head. Light spotty lacing. Has a floral, resiny aroma with light toasted malt aroma. Flavor is a little sweet with a good hop bit. Medium to full body. A very good beer.

vyvvy (4134) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - SEP 23, 2006
Pours clear deep bronze with a decent sized tan head that gives very good lacing. Aroma has sturdy malt, sweetness, rye, dark woody hops and some light grapefruit citrus hops. Full bodied with lots of soft carbonation. The taste has lots of dark hoppy flavors, some fruitiness, very woody hops along with some dark malt that give a good amount of balance. The finish has a boatload of woody hops with some spiciness and rye. There is lingering dark fruits as well. There is a sweetness that goes throughout the taste that is not typical for the style, but it works for me with this one. Nicely done and unique IIPA.
