Caramel and malt nose. Red-brown body with a tan head. Lace clings to glass. Flavors include caramel, malt and tons of hops. Finish is definitely dry-hopped and includes a heavy, thick mouth-feel. Warming too. Not sure how true-to-style this one is.

Pours adeep amber brew with a bit of foam but not much. Nose was mango and hops which is not what I want in an IIPA. I want HOPS. The alcohol was very prominent here and ruined the brew.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 14, 2006
Bottle. Way over the top. Aroma is loads of sweet aromatic hops and i mean loads.Llots of sweet caramel and raw alcohol Some toastyness. Palate is way to sweet, sticky and bitter all at the same time. Once again alcohol is noticeable. Very raw and the palate is just all over the place. Probably leans more towards an American strong than a double IPA.

on tap-pours a big foamy light tan head with gold color. Aroma is citrus hops. Taste is citrus hops with some bite, secondary medium malt. Good carbonation. Good beer.

MI2CA (1340) - Noblesville, Indiana, USA - AUG 14, 2006
22oz - Aroma of thick chewy rye and citrus hops. Sweet and inviting yet unique (to me at least). Pours transparent brown with a small head and great lacing. Flavor matches aroma with a little carmel malt to balance it out. Palate is tart and clean. This is a wonderfully drinkable and tasty brew that hides the 10% very well.

Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - AUG 13, 2006
Bottle. Almandine body with a thick lasting sticky head. Nose-rich PNW hops. Taste-PNW hops, grapefruit, piney, sweet, honey, grassy, salty, perfume, med-high bitter. Very well done, an archetype of IIPAís.

dolemike1 (1288) - Jeannette, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 13, 2006
Copper, hazy, medium head, hint of red in it. Aroma of grapefruit and rye bread. Bready, and malty, with apparent rye flavor, alcohol in the finish. Interesting, yet not particularly enjoyable.

Sham (1845) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 11, 2006
Pellucid copper with a monstrous, beige head. Insanely live carbonation and great lacing. Large sticky sheets of it in fact. Even from two feet away I can smell the hops assaulting my olfactory senses. Oh, the Simcoe does come out here; how I do love me some Simcoe. Very rich and sweet aroma with a large, bubblegum quality. Some saltwater taffy aromas float here and there. A thick and pungent maltiness lingers beneath the onslaught of hop wonders. Bitter and pine notes somehow make it through that massive layer of head. The flavor is thickly malty with a significant dose of piney bitterness. Very sticky flavors mingle with some expected heat. Flavors reminiscent of cedar come out with a note of rye. Thick and heavy bodied is this beer. It definately leaves a rather lasting impression with its sheer weight of malts and bitterness. The funk of rye follows through to the end. This massive beer beds down and warms the belly letting you know how strong it really is.

luckygirl (1223) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 10, 2006
Bottled 750. Beer is a clear medium-dark red-brown color with an average-sized, off-white, frothy, mostly lasting head. The aroma is malty with moderate notes of toasted grain, caramel; Hoppy with a moderate note of resin/pine, moderate note of herb and a light note of redwood; Yeasty with a light note of basement; Moderate miscellaneous notes of raisin, alcohol, plum, trace of minty burbon and coconut. The flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter wtih a long, moderately-to-heavily bitter, moderately sweet, lightly astringent, grippy, very warm finish. The body is full, the texture is velvety and thick and the carbonation is lively.

Ernest (6031) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 10, 2006
Head is initially average sized, frothy, off-white, mostly lasting. Body is dark amber. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (toasted grain, cookie, caramel), moderately hoppy (resin, grapefruit), with notes of alcohol and fruitcake. Flavor is heavily sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Finish is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately bitter. Full body, creamy texture, lively carbonation, moderately alcoholic. Itís actually pretty good for a "train wreck" type of beer. The aroma doesnít have much subtlety or complexity, but itís ok for this kind of thing. Luxurious thick mouthfeel, warming without being too hot. Itís far from a type of beer I enjoy, BUT for what it is (and considering how crappy the rest of the Hebrew line is), Iím surprised.
