Gift from SJ. I really enjoy this brewery. Nice Double IPA, a tiny bit thin, but good.
Nice blend of grapefruit, caramel malt and dry bittter finish. Could use a bit more hp , but it’s good.

From a 650ml bottle on 222/7/2012 (shared with Butz). Pours a cloudy golden with a medium head. Has a lovely floral, fruity aroma, with a touch of caramel. The flavours are fairly typical of a US style IPA - sweet caramel and toffee malt, with a big burst of fruit (orange, apricot and peach), marmalade and treacle. Finishes with a big resiny hop kick. Comparatively subdued for something labelled as an imperial IPA (it comes across more as a big standard IPA). Very nice stuff.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Single bottle purchased from a mom & pop store in Redondo Beach, California on 07/11/2012. Colour: Light orange with traces of yellow. Very little head. Nose: Hard boiled egg if forefront, oddly enough. Hops are certainly there - but not as in-your-face as lead to believe by its name. They have traces of pine and mothballs. Taste: Medium sweet, medium bitter, medium-light sour. A large malt presence gives this one decent amount of sweentess but not at a comprimising dose. The hops are big but not bursting in mid-palate, but a huge bitter finish rises up quickly and is accompanied by some vanilla bean ice cream and wax. Odd little duck but pleasent enough.

A delicious hop bomb of a beer. Aroma was heavy pine and grapefruit. The aroma was thick and chewy. Pour was a nice cloudy light orange with a one finger off white head. Taste was dank, resinous and bitter. Strong citrus and pine flavors scrape the inside of the mouth. A tad on the hot side.Very little malt to balance the beer out (which is how I like my IIPAs). Nice carbonation with a bitter hoppy finish. Very nice beer

Burnt orange in color... Aroma is pine and herbal hops... Flavor is strongly piney hops with nice balance of caramel malts, but still has a significant pine and herbal hop backbone... Fairly dry, but still very good... Enjoyable
