Delicious!!! I havenít had a IIPA in such a long time. It is sweaty hot out and it fits the mood perfectly. Got this beer in December and itís still projects aroma. Very american hop aroma, sweet malt, orange, and toffee. Appearance is nice red/burnt-orange with creamy white head, but a little too hazy. Flavor is sweet malt, nice strong bitterness, a little banana, clove, and well hidden alc. flavor. Very appropiate full body. Overall a very well balanced, distinct double i.

Bottle from Total Wine. Wow, this was an outstanding Double IPA. Poured a copper color with a small white head. Aroma of floral hops, some citrus as well. Taste was slightly bitter, citrus fruits and malts. Alcohol was non existent. This will get you drunk.

UPDATED: AUG 5, 2007 Bottle. Ahhh finally a decent 2IPA. Been a while since Iíve found a nice hop-bomb that was done properly. This is a chinook and cascade heavy beer that is dry as sandpaper but fullbodied enough to make that okay. Decent looking too, clear and orange. Lots of smiles while drinking this one.

Bottle in trade from Jimbowood. Thanks Jimbo. Pours a cloudy dark copper color with a small lasting off white head. Aroma is of citrus hops with a bit of sweet malt. The flavor is much of the same with the citrus hops balanced nicely with the sweet malts. The bitterness in the aftertaste is long lasting. The 8.6% is fairly well hidden. Enjoyable.

JMFG (1587) - Florida, USA - APR 29, 2007
Bottle in trade with padrefan98. Mostly clear copper color with thick off-white head. Decent mild grapefruit aroma with some biscuity notes. Not real hoppy for a DIPA, but the grapefruit rind tastes that are there are nice. Just a decent DIPA, but if the aromas and flavors that are there were intensified, itíd be a damn good brew.

Good, caramel malty flavor. Kinda fruity. Watch out, the alcohol content will really sneak up on you.

Suttree (5013) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - APR 23, 2007
Cloudy orangey red, thin beige head. Big hop aroma - floral citrus and earthy pine. kind of perfumy. Citrus hops dominates the flavor, with a sticky, resiny finish. Kind of hop dominated, but there are hints of caramelly malt, too.

egajdzis (5253) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 21, 2007
Poured a copper color with a small, off white head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of lemon, floral hops, some tea, with pine, citrus, and a bit of toffee as well. Taste was slightly bitter, grapefruit, citrus fruits, caramel malts. Alcohol was fairly well hidden.

Fairly heady hop aroma is mostly grapefruit, but is not devoid of piney notes. There is also a good dose of sweet malt beneath, but citrus/grapefruit accented hops are the main attraction. The body is a darker bruised orange color and holds a fairly lasting, compact white head. Very citrus/grapefruit and malt accented. The almost sweet citrus notes meld into the malt component very nicely. Goes bitter and stays that way faqr into the aftertaste. I would prefer a little less bitterness, but this is a pretty nice brew on the whole.
