Oh my, this used to be great, still decent though. Clear amber, little bits of tropical fruit, rindy bitterness, and some caramel malt. Clean finish, very iipa light tasting. The bottle I had seemed a bit faded already, this one might not last long.

Bottle. Amber. No head. Bitter but not iipa standards. Light on aroma like the other big eddys. Mainstream beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Has a very nice mouth feel. Nice hoppy taste thru out. If you’re a fan of Hopslam you definitely want to try this.

tmoreau (2422) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - JUL 7, 2012
12 oz. bottle poured to a shaker showing a hazed, coppery amber hue, persistent, cakey/moussy, off white head foam, and wavy, curtainy cling to the lacing. The nose was strong mid-fruit as peach & apricot, and citrus as tangerine & grapefruit, and substantial, smooth malt. The body was full, there was good carbonation, a nice creaminess to the mouth feel, and the flavor presented a husky, moderately lingering hop bitterness, and good balancing malt & sweetness. Maybe not as warming as my first introduction to this DIPA in Milwaukee, five years ago, but very impressive, and glad to see it come out of retirement!

Good stuff!! Thanks Bill! Strong oranges aroma and dark amber look with not so bad head. Drinking while enjoying chicken wings and watching the outlaw with Jane Russel......AGAIN!! Good stuff!!

Man, I have waited a very long time to try this. I was shocked and couldn’t believe my eyes when I came across this in the coolers at Papago, sweeeeet. 12oz bottle pours clear deep copper with off white head. The aroma offers up malt sweetened tangelo and mango and grapefruit and it almost smells like fruit has been freshly cut up right in front of me. The taste has rich malt sweetened flavor hops brining up juicy mango cut with clementine and grapefruit. It gets only moderately bitter to midway and picks up a green sort of lime and lime peel like sensation into the finish. This is sweet rewards for such a long wait.

Pours a deep, clear, orange color. Big nose of pine, grapefruit, orange. Flavors follow similarly. Pretty bitter. Good IIPA! A little pricey, though.

Bottle: The aroma consists of tropical fruits, pineapple, citrus, grapefruit, and pine. It pours a transparent amber with a small orange tinged off-white that leaves behind some spotty lacing. The flavor starts with tropical fruits, pineapple, and citrus. There’s a nice fruitiness in the background. The finish moderate grapefruit and lighter pine. It’s medium bodied with light- moderate carbonation and a slightly sticky mouthfeel. Overall, another dangerously drinkable IIPA.

Pours an amber color with an off-white head. Aroma is of caramel malts, not much hops, and little alcohol. Flavor has more of the hops than what I thought from the aroma. Slight alcohol on the warming.
