Strictly a real-deal IIPA. Big hoppy fruit component characterized by a big grapefruit citrus bite and an incredible piney, resinous highlighted caramel malt backbone. Very floral, good bitterness, not overpowering or unbalanced sweetness - really good drink.

2009 Bottle - Pours hazt orange with a medium off white head...aroma is massive grapefuit hops tempered with a malty undertone...flavour is pine and cirtrus hops, sticky caramel but never seems sweet, lingering astringent bitterness...solid alcohol, still trying to catch my breath from that resiny finish...

Bottle thanks to blutt59. Pours a hazy gold with off-white head. Aroma of nice floral hops, some malt. Flavor of some malt, hop flavor, nice bitter, kinda earthy. Mouthfeel is medium-heavy body with medium-high carbonation. Over all, pretty good stuff!

bomber - pours clear, light orange with thin, lingering white head; healthy dose of grapefruit hops with sweet, lemony and earthy undertones; thin, creamy and almost syrupy texture but with little to no unpleasant resiny leftovers; sweetness balances out the bitterness, which doesnít come through very strong; very smooth drinker for 8% and overall quite impressive

carruthm (1401) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 10, 2009
clear light orange pour with a good two to three finger sized white head. Aroma is piercing hops but quickly assimilated. Some spruce and light citrus notes as well. Taste hits with sugar and malt first with some oak like feeling and then flows to the bitter hops. I liked that. Balanced in the hops flavor at the end leaves a bitter resin in the mouthfeel.

A delicious IIPA via trade with Chewy. Aroma was big and full. Strong grapefruit hops. Pour was a majestic dark gold with a one finger off white head.Taste was just as it would imply. It was their IPA given an extra dose of bitter hop goodness. Strong bitter hops with little malt to balance it out. I love IIPAs that are grossly unbalanced (little to no malt character) and this is one of them. The lack of a heavy malt presence makes this beer a lot more bitter and keeps the ABV down. Great beer.
