3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: AUG 6, 2013 22 oz. bottle, pours an opaque vibrant orange with a small off-white head. Aroma brings out lots of tropical fruits, particularly oranges, followed by mango and pineapple, some resinous hops, and a touch of caramel malt. Flavour brings out loads of oranges upfront, followed by loads of resinous an citrus hops, and ending on notes of residual sugar notes and citrus hoppy bitterness. There is a bit of tanginess as well, likely due to the Nelson Sauvin hopping. This is a big n bold IIPA with a solid caramel malt backbone that never quite overdoes it. Great stuff, but still a bit chewy for a IIPA.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle:   Golden hued amber, very faint haze, moderate to large foamy white head, fairly clingy lacing.   Soft grapefruit like aroma, a little bit of dank herbalness and muted candied citrus peel.   A little unfinished tho, seems like some medicinal/fusel like alcohol.   Yeah, almost a perfume like backend that is very distracting.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate, not real heavy but at least its somewhat smooth.   Finishes with a hoppy semi-sweet perfumy alcohol like medicinal grapefruit.   Meh... not as good as I was hoping.   Thanks Ron for the bottle!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Thanks to bman1113vr for sharing this bottle. This is beer number 2500 for me.
The beer pours a golden-yellow color with a white head. The aroma is very fruity. I get a lot of grapefruit, pineapple and papaya notes. The tropical fruit notes in the beer really stand out, with very little else coming through.
The flavor is more of the same. I get a little biscuit malt, but I also get a ton of pineapple and papaya. The beer is full of hop flavor but the bitterness is fairly low. Overall, the beer is very drinkable,
Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
