4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
This is a fantastic beer. Huge aroma of citric hops and sweet malt with no noticeable alcohol. I would ask for a little more complexity from the hops. It is beautiful, but its head ran away too quickly. Itís thicker on the palate but extremely drinkable, with a sweet start and dry, balanced finish.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
The aroma has a sweetness to it that many IPAís donít have. There are citrus grapefruit, apricot, and piney smells along with other hops. It is golden clear with a little lacing and a white head. The taste has grapefruit, a bit of caramel, piney hops, and apricot.

From the 650 ml bottle. It pours an orange-copper color with a decent off-white head that fades and laces. Excellent clarity. Grassy and floral hops are on the nose with a muted but present toasted malt character. Medium body. Nicely balanced hop and malt character although the hops lead. Bitter finish that lingers.

Pours a clear dark gold color. Thick white head that lasts and lasts. Lots of soapy lacing. Hoppy pine aroma. Huge resin hop flavor. Nicely balanced malt followed by a lingering bitterness that tastes like a fresh grapefruit.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear amber with small fine bubbly head. Smells so yeasty it's almost a bit food/fish-like though not unpleasant, just a bit musty and strange. Some spice and malt too. Taste is very, very, very hoppy, loads of deep bitter pine that ends on a more malty slightly sour note. Body is foamy but slick. Huge and pretty drinkable for a beer that's this hoppy but kind of coarse/rough, almost like a really ambitious big homebrew.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from QClub at home. Very deep amber clear pour. Thin foamy head. Very unusual aroma - very sharp hoppy fruity aroma with a peppery spiciness. Taste is huge resinous hops, a bit sour fruit in its hoppiness too. Malty and rich enough to stand up to it. A bit thick/syrupy. Ends with booze and bitterness. Very big, heavy, extremely hoppy. Too extreme to buy frequently.

22 FL. OZ ($4.99) just trying for the first time. They donít call it hop stoopid for no reason. The hoppiness is almost overwhelming for a first beer of the night. great beer if youíre into Hops will be your death if you are not. but definitely worth the price and worth trying once; hell, maybe even twice ;)
