kkearn (1165) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 17, 2009
22oz bottle. Pours slightly hazy amber, capped with a big, frothy tan head that persists until the last sip. Tantalizing aroma of grapefruity hops, spice, honey, grass, and caramel. Flavor is heavy on citric hops, with grapefruit, orange zest, juniper berries, grass, honey and spice. Hops cling to the palate for a lengthy finish. Really nice double IPA.

jgb9348 (4737) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JAN 17, 2009
Slightly hazy golden coloured body with a virtually non-existant head. Aroma of sweet honey, curacao, wheat, yeast, malt and some light hops. Medium to Full-bodied; Sweet malty taste complete with apples and oranges noticeable, along with a good spicey yeastiness that lasts. Aftertase stays on the palate perfectly - good tastes throughout. Overall, a nice seasonal beer that shows very well for the sytle. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased at Oliver’s Beverage in Albany, New York on 22 December 2006.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - DEC 26, 2008
Bottle. Pours a dark amber body with a white head. Big earthy grassy hop character grapefruit bitter and tangy with a nice dry grass flavor amongst the alcohol. A bozzy heavily hopped beer, but a step up from the rest of their ipa s.

craftycarl21 (2227) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - DEC 15, 2008
Pours a swampy amber with zero head. Aroma heavy on hops, citrus, and a bit of malt. Flavor is extremely heavy on hops, but not as bitter and more thick in the body- characteristic of a DIPA compared to a normal IPA. Really nice palate, sticks to the tongue really nice. The past couple Middle Ages offerings I’ve tasted have shifted my opinion of them for the better. Well done.

oteyj (2130) - New Hampshire, USA - NOV 20, 2008
Pours grapefruit amber. With no head. Aroma is pungent hops, sweetness and grapefruit. Flavor is excellent- lots of hard hitting hops. Huge hop character- top notch actually. Palate is thick. Finish is dry with hops.

Slipstream (2024) - USA - OCT 23, 2008
Mediocre label. Cloudy, dark honey-colored pour. The penetrating aroma promises a full load of hops, and there are also scents of honey/malt, lemon, and flowers. This brew is bursting with resiny hop and grapefruit pith flavors that practically disinfect the palate. X is a little surly and unbalanced, but I recommend it to people who like to undergo heavy hop treatment. As for myself, I’ll take a Wailing Wench instread.

tgncc (2818) - Bellmore, New York, USA - SEP 14, 2008
Aroma is a unique but pleasing mix of pine tree and grapefruit. All hops in the nose. The appearance is an attractive red/gold, sound white head, good lacing. The flavor is more piney than citrusy, but very good. There is a definite sweetness from mcaramel malts in there as well. The palate is left with a strong hop burn; nice, enduring finish. Very good for this style. This brewer has yet to disappoint me with anything they put out.
