3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the brewpub in Media, PA.
Pours with a copper body. Good head and a good bit of sticky lacing. High clarity for an unfiltered DIPA.
Good bitter-sweet balance for style: not overly bitter. No off notes. Modestly fruity and moderately strong hop level. Hints of honey and passion fruit, with a a strong grapefruit peel finish.
Medium body and carbonation.

Growler pour, courtesy of Pedro, from Iron Hill Media. Pours a cloudy orange amber with dense, fluffy, beige head that fades leaving thick, protruding, abundant lace. Nose of melon, pineapple, apricot, caramel, mango, grapefruit, wet wood. Medium body, a little oily. Great hop flavors, a little roast I didn’t pick up in the nose. Real nice DIPA

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Mini-growler from Pinocchio’s. Clear honey brown with a clingy whitish head that leaves copious lacing. Nose is pine, cantaloupe and cat; deep down wet basement and weed. Oily medium body with a soft buzz. Manages to stay drinkable even though a hoppy monster. Taste is pink grapefruit, tangerine, lemon zest, toffee and pine. They nailed it with this one. Great brew and a great bottle shop.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a copper color with minimal head and excellent lacing. Aroma of grapefruit, pineapple, and hops. Lots of citrus upfront-grapefruit and pineapple with an aggressive bitter hop bite on the back end. Very well done.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JUN 9, 2012 Golden orange body. Moderate hazy body capped by a dense white head that leaves behind a healthy coating of lacing. Aggressive bitterness from a few feet away. Grapefruit, pineapple, and other citric notes dominate. A bit of resinous hops as well. Medium bodied, perhaps a tad overcarbonated, dry, tight bitter finish. Definitely the best IPA offered by any of the Iron Hills.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a clear golden/orange color with a medium creamy white head...good lacing and retention. Pungent hoppy aroma has some peach and grapefruit...citrusy sweet...just a hint of spicy hops. Flavor is more spicy hops forward with grapefruit creeping in late...very tasty. Mouthfeel is medium/full and oily with a grapefruity, very bitter and dry finish that lingers. Nice! One of the best if not the best iron hill beers ive had!

4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Had on tap at Pinnochio’s Beer Garden 2nd anniversary party, which this beer was brewed for. Amber/golden color with carbonation typical of the style. Aroma is of citrusy hops, very inviting. The citra and galaxy hops truly shine through in the flavor, notes of pineapple, grapefruit, and peaches. Alcohol is very well hidden. Excellent beer, hope they make it again!
