3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear amber-copper color, small white head. Strong aroma of pineapple and hops. Quite sweet and malty flavor with lots of pineapple and resiny notes. Some citrus in the finish too. Not really powerful for IIPA. And seems that I am not a fan of pineapple and hop combination -to me this looks a bit overrated here.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: MAY 17, 2009 Clear amber. Chewy, toasty crystal malt aroma. Chewy, sticky taste with only a hint of citrusy hops. Hrm. The worst qualities of this brewery all in one glass.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bottle, 7.5%. Nice, sweet and caramelly hop aroma. Clear copper colour, small white head. The flavour is quite sweet, caramelly. Grassy from the hops with a good, cleansing bitterness. The finish has a little teaish hoppiness along with a good alcohol note. Quite flavourful but still well-balanced.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz. bottle, pours hazy golden with a white head. Grassy hops, pine and grapefruit on the nose. Much more hoppy than the single IPA, with less of a malt backbone - just the way I like IPAs. Beautiful body, albeit a tad thin - however, the palate is wonderful: pine hops, grapefruits, some citrus, good astringency. Great double IPA.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Resin and grapefruit aroma (and malt). Gold tending towards reddish amber (top to bottom under halogen), maybe a ruby hint towards the bottom. Medium feel, malt to start, moving to hops, to grapefruit, to hops. Grapefruit noticeable at the finish. Swish and it’s chewable. Swish and an apricot component appears. And it’s 78 ibu. Nicely astringent when all is done. Pine in the burp. Really, really, great.
