UPDATED: APR 20, 2014 22 oz Bomber. The beer pours to a cloudy copper/ amber color with a small white head. The aroma is strong with piney & resin hops. The taste is a medium body with a crisp bitter aftertaste. Overall a good DIPA.

Up there with the best of the double IPAs, in my book, although it does tend sometimes to seem a little too harsh for my tastes.

Thanks cards04 for this one while watching top chef masters. Peach colour. Sweet bready aroma. Taste is nicely bitter but well balanced. High quality.

Really nice. Pours a hazy orange with white head. Aromas of malty corn syrup and caramel. Also resin. Flavours are sweet and malty. Caramel. Then transitions to a nice pine bitterness. Really good.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from 12oz bottle, pours a dark hazy amber orange with a thick off white head and a lot of lacing in the glass, the aroma is a little more sweet than I was expecting with just a kick of citrus and hops coming through, the flavor is of bittering hops and a ton of sweet malt, whoa, something is telling me this didn’t get to Wisconsin in just a few weeks of bottling, thick mouthfeel that coats your entire mouth, I personally like my DIPA’s fresh and light with a good amount of citrus and a smooth finish, this is basically the exact opposite, I might have to ask our local distributer about how old some of this stuff is, too bad, I was looking forward to this one. My wife swore it tasted like my first batch of homebrew, and that’s not a good thing.

Bottle. Pours orange with a white head. Medium floral bitterness, sweet malts, and light earthy notes. Tastes like an average amber ale. Either you all have shitty palates or I got burned with an old bottle. Sorry Left Coast, if you dated your bottles, I wouldn’t rate this likely out of date bottle. But you don’t. So tough shit.
