mspindler (489) - Alta Loma, California, USA - MAY 6, 2010
Bottle from Total Wine. Pours a hazy darkish amber with a 2 finger, nicely lacing tan head. Aroma is initially a big blast of grapefruit and pine hoppiness that lets on a little bit of caramel and malt sweetness after a couple of seconds. Flavor is enormously bitter and resinous. Itís kinda like biting in to an underripe grapefruit. There is some sweetness that helps out, but in no way balances this beer. The hops stick around for a long time as well as a slight alcohol heat. Oily on the palate with soft carbonation. Good, but excessive. Donít even bother if you donít like your beers excessively bitter.

wavers1 (872) - Notown, California, USA - MAY 5, 2010
pours a deep hazy burnt sienna with a nice caramel head. the aroma is more bitter than the taste, lots of astringent notes throughout. more maltiness in the taste to balance it out, not too bad actually. was expecting something much more strange, but just a decent, over bittered iipa.

DalzAle (1904) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - MAY 4, 2010
Bottle. Hazy orange brown pour, an abundance of carbonation and an aroma of homebrewing woody hop pellets. Flavor is also pretty one dimensional, bitter herbal hops and boozy on the finish. Not bad, but overpriced. Try it once if youíre curious, but after that Iím guessing youíll be like me and rather spend your $15 on a better American imperial IPA.

Papsoe (25094) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 2, 2010
Bottle 37,5 cl. Courtesy of joergen. Pours a cloudy and opaque amber with a dense yellowish head leaving massive lacings. Aroma is massively hoppy, intense and juicy with no single hop standing out. Body is quite solid, caramel and overripe fruit again with a massive hop overdose making this somewhat herbal. The bitterness is there indeed, but not as extreme as you would expect. Works excellent as a palate cleanser with fat foods. 020510

popery (1231) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAY 2, 2010
1000 IBU pours fire brick red/carnelian with a big thick ecru-colored head. Lots of lacing. The aroma is a smŲrgŚsbord of hop flavors: floral, pine resin, candied oranges, spruce, grapefruit rind, marijuana, grass, crushed leaves - leaving hops - caramel, bread, malt extract. That said, itís not nearly as strong of an aroma as I was expecting and this is the biggest fault that separates it from the heights of the style. The flavor loses nearly all of the malt flavor and just hits with a huge pine resin bitterness. This isnít the bitterest hop bomb Iíve ever tried, but it has the longest bitter hop finish. Thereís some sense of malt sweetness, but itís hard to appreciate as my palate takes refuge from the ceaseless onslaught of hops. A good five minutes after my last sip, it still feels like my mouth is full of resiny essential oils squeezed from pine needles and grapefruit pith. Mouthfeel is about medium and I would actually prefer it a bit thicker.

blazingspiral (170) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - MAY 1, 2010
12.7 fl oz bottle with cork, wrapped in paper. Obviously a brew made by hopheads for hopheads, and my rating reflects the opinions of a die-hard hophead. In the glass itís a nearly opaque amber-orange with a small but long-lasting head. The aroma is what I imagine heaven might smell like -- pine trees, wildflowers, exotic fruits, and potent herbs. The flavor is a symphony of hoppy goodness. It starts bitter-sweet, moves into a deceptive moment of malt sweetness, and finishes with intense bitterness. Itís amazing how the flavors unfold after each sip as the copious hops resins reveal their multi-faceted characters in quick succession. This brew compares favorably with the double IPAs from Moylanís, Alesmith, and Great Divide. Definitely worth seeking out.

Chalsk (1017) - North Caldwell, New Jersey, USA - APR 30, 2010
Pours an amber brown haze with an off-white foam head. Has a very pine aroma with hints of grapefruit and caramel. What a hop bomb. Sweet and creamy up front, nice harsh hop hit on the back. If you like a resiny hop bomb, this is a must try. Love it and canít wait to get more.

kappldav123 (4582) - Nordhausen, GERMANY - APR 30, 2010
Thanks to yespr for this one The bottle looks very, very good, the beer in the glass also. Amber-coloured, huge head. Starts complex-hoppy, bitter from the beginning, but not as much as I exspected. Also some fruity-spicy notes, some lemon. Finish drier, almost a bit dusty. Bitter notes remain on the tongue. Very interesting beer!
