This smells like hoppy piss. A really strong nose which ends in amonia. very odd. Appearance is golden yellow clear white head. taste is really bitter and brutal with only the slightest tiniest touch of malt. LIke a pliny but a bit more acidic. Palate is nice. Overall Iím not going to be searching this out any time soon.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This starts off with a big strong dank aroma, with some earthy notes hidden within. Pours a clear golden amber, with a full fluffy white head. Big chewy hop notes, with a strong bittering note in the finish. The finish really sticks around with this beer. This is a solid hop bomb. Donít go into this beer expecting balance, expect this beer to just be all about the hops.

Huge danky nose, big pine and weed up front. Lots of hops, light pale malt backbone that imparts just a hint of sweetness. Pours pale golden, nice head and lace. THe flavor starts and finishes with a shit ton of danky hops, weed, and a touch of bread and pale malts sweetness in the middle. Big agressive hop character, nice drinkability. Dry, lingering weed flavors. Good stuff.

Bomber. Pours a totally clear copper color with a large white foamy head- looks awesome. A sweet resinous and pale and pils malt nose, some lemon. The flavor is sweet sticky reisnous hops, lingering but not overpowering bitterness, some heat and bitter finish. Certainly a bit of a odd chemical warmth that complicates it a bit, nothing offensive. Very aggressive.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Stone Brewing World Bistro. Hazy amber with orange highlights supporting a two finger off white head with a nice film of thin lacing. Aggressive aroma of earthy, rustic hops - not a classic west coast citrus explosion. A bit of citrus in the flavor but the rustic hop profile dominates along with toffee and a hint of mango. Sticky, full mouthfeel. Dry, bitter finish with a touch of white pepper.

Draught at Eureka. Amber with a lasting, creamy white head. Big, dank, weedy aroma. Medium body with a little alcohol presence but not too sweet. Nice soft mouthfeel and carbonation. A little bready and just plain malty. Big resiny hop bitterness and finish. Drinks well for itís size and works the big, dank west coast double IPA angle well.

Tap at the Rubicon. Pours clear copper. Aroma seems fruit, citrus and pine. Med body. Flavor is a mix of hops and something unusual reminding me of burnt rubber. Finishes bitter. Somehow the odd flavor is working rather well.
