3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz bottle - pours clear rust with lots of suspended particles that arenít going anywhere. White head leaves very nice lace. Fruity and floral hop aroma is quite beautiful. Body nicely robust, though flavour is slightly one dimensional. Fruity hops, but with a good amount of balancing malt. This is a quality IPA, one I will definitely get again. 43 different hops? Wow - nothiní like the good ole US of A for some old fashioned extremism.....

bottle at dicarloís tasting. this is a pretty average to good IPA. it was drank after several belgian samples and some other styles, and it was nice to be able to point out to my friends exactly what hops are since they shined so much in contrast to the previous beers weíd had. iíll have to rerate it someday, but this seemed pretty decent all around. um, crisp and cascadish.

What a surprise Iím at JFK airport and i see this on tap. I jumped on this one and i was pretty happy with my choice. Itís not really special, itís your normal american IPA with a big hop bite and aroma. The label claims 43 hops...iím not sure why youíd ever put that many varieties in a beer, and iíd be the first to call BS on that one. Itís a good regular IPA. Iíd get it again.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a dark orange with mall head. Very dry taste at the end not much bite, as in citrusy or bitterness. Piney after taste big time.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle: Orange body with a thin head. Noted cake, pine, perfume, sugar cane, and some citrus. This beer started out dry and bitter. A slight hint of sweetness hit for a second before more dry hoppyness finishes off this IPA with a mission. Does open up a little after a while, with some saltine cracker, sweet orange, and perfume qualities making this beer a little more interesting. A solid session beer for when I just want hops.

Enjoyed this IPA very much. Dry with a full hop flavor. Doesnít sneak up as fast on you as the Maximus. Love the bitterness combined with the dryness.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle sampled. Pours deep copper/amber with a large off-white head. Aroma of caramel malt, hops, citrus, pine. The flavor is caramel, citrus, and a piney bitterness through out.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hoppy and rich, with a creamy mouthfeel. This beer is great to just sit and sip. More flavors come out as it warms (slightly). There seems to be a slight sodium taste though. And the finish is a touch too bitter for my tastes.

On tap at the brewery. Crisp and hoppy. Decent amount of grapefruit character. Better than your average IPA but nothing extreme.
