bomber. Hazy amber/almost peach. A citrus pine aroma. Strong grapefruit. Sweeter than expected, don’t get me wrong, the bitterness comes thru strongly yet never interferes w/ the drinkablitly. Kinda’ pricey, a point lost.

Eye: copper/brown, hazy, enormous head
Nose: pine, resin, some citrusy notes, some malty-yeasty notes as well
Mouth: far too hoppy, lingering bitterness from the beginning till the end, some caramel notes and some alcohol behind
Could be great but it is completely unbalanced. This beer is mainly piney hop extract.

Certainly not living up to the hype or price. Assault on the palate not what I'd prefer in an ipa I enjoy my bitterness but I'd like some hoppy aroma with it too. It's almost like I swallowed resin after the initial malt sweetness

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
hazy copper with a thin white cap. The aroma has a sharp earthy pine nose with some lemon rind and a wee touch of cherry and bitter caramalt. The flavor is just sharp and hoppy, not really acidic but dry and very bitter with dank leafy piney hop flavors and bitter citrus notes. Not a fan.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Rated on 8-19-2010 (Bottle). This beer forms a medium sized very fizzy off-white head with a short retention, hazy orange, copper body, fizzy carbonation, and a ring of lacing. The aromas are caramel malt, citrus, pine hops, fruity, spicy, and alcohol. The taste is moderately bitter, alcohol, caramel malt, citrus, pine hops, and a hint of clove. The palate is sticky and aggressive. This beer is medium bodied. This is a beer for the hop heads! It is a sipping beer and worth trying.

Bottle into Teku glass. Beautifullllllll dare I say any more? Strong sap, pine, spicy and some citrus coming through. Sticky, warm, spicy, malt coming through, nicely bitter feel ramping up as it lengthens with a slight burn, accentuated by the beechwood bacon, burger liberally sprinked with tabasco. Extremelely nice triple IPA, would like to compare with a fresher bottle though.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle: Thanks, Alex! Completely opaque, light-copper & swampy brown; muddled, murky, & topped with a sightly off-white cap that retains surprisingly well. Aroma is super sweet & super malty up front; caramel, toffee, & residual sugars with hop notes taking a back seat... Sticky citrus, pine, & florals. Warmth just brings out more malty sweetness, including mild notes of butterscotch. Taste is just as expected, malty to the core; caramel, toffee, sweet toasted bread, only with some lightly citric & earthy hops buried underneath. Sticky, coating caramel malt aftertaste. Far from undrinkable, but even farther from what I want my DIPAs to taste like... Way too much malt & sweetness, not nearly enough hoppage.

On tap at Choice City Butcher. Appearance: finger of slightly off-white head, lasts, dark straw yellow, clear. Aroma: floral, light bread, resin. Palate: light-med body, bitter lasting finish, sticky texture, soft carbonation. Taste: bitter bitter and bitter. Overall, it is a triple IPA, so you are not looking for balance here and you do not get it. Very good for what it is, could not drink a pint of this I do not think, but very memorable.

With it's almost mild aroma, I was initially nervous that this was another hop bomb. Further from the truth I have rarely been. First bite is ultra bitter hops, with a smooth finish usually reserved for your standard IPA. If you're a bitter, hop fan this is a beer to try. Bomber to glass. Color is great, very little head. At 10% abv, this hopaholics dream will sneak up on you.
