Bottle shared by a friend. Pours a hazy, apricot colored with small white head. Aroma of big resinous and tropical fruit. Big and bold and delicious. Flavor of massive papaya, guava, and ruby red grapefruit. Subtle sugars in the finish. Awesome beer. A world class iiipa.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle: Very heavy amber, fairly dirty in color, moderate to large frothy whitish head, fairly nice lacing. Sweet citrusy nose, candyish, hops are there but its not in a bitter way. Sweet citrusy, pine, candied citrus peel, and hops on the tongue.   Tastes pretty damn good. Seems like a lot of these import IIPAs have this candyish sweetness to them without the bittering, but luckily this seems fairly balanced. Could stand to be a bit maltier, chewy, to ring out the backside. Some alcohol seeps in towards the finish. Body and mouthfeel seem fairly moderate. Hops seem to make most of the appearance towards the end, sweetness dies down, the bitterness comes through a bit more. Pretty much what I expected, perhaps even a little better. Thanks again Jeff!

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Der Antrunk gleicht einer Hopfenbombe, sowohl hocharomatische als auch bittere Hopfenteile sind dabei vorhanden, der Aromahopfen überwiegt aber. Später wird die Bitterkeit stärker, waspassend zum übermächtigen grasigen und erdigen Hopfen ist. Dadurch wirkt das Bier in Teilen zu süß. Zum Ende hin machen sich Zitrusaromen breit, Birke, Melone, etwas Birne. Trotz des starken Hopfen ist das Bier einigermaßen, wenn auch nicht perfekt harmonisch. Zum Ende astringent und sehr bitter. Gewöhnungsbedürftiger Wechsel. 8/12/8/12/12/12

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
In reviewing tasting notes from a recent trip, I came across this one, scrawled on a motel room notepad in my most hopped-out handwriting: "Hazy gold, medium head. Super hops aroma -- dank. Smell from across the room. Liquid ganga. A perfect IIPA. Bitter, thick, fresh, potent. Wow!" So basically it was really good. Actually a major highlight of recent tastings.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
11.2oz bottle pours clear copper with off white head. The aroma is full and yummy with spicy hops, citrus hops, some pears, tropical juicy sticky mango fruitiness and sweet malt slickness underneath. The taste is similar with spicy hops, tropical fruit notes and citrus hops where the hops are moving from flavor to increasingly bitter by the second. Behind those hops are mild levels of various degrees of malt roastiness but heading from lightly roasted to only modestly roasted. Nice stuff

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cloudy in appearance and orange in color. A white bubbly head that decipates rather quickly. Spotty lacing. Has a strong floral nose. Citrus is definitely noticeable in the aroma. Caramel backs up the hops in the aroma. Medium bitterness in the taste but leaves a sweetness on the lips. The texture falls between the creamy and thick catagory. Has average carbonation. The finish is long and bitter. Overall this was a very good beer and definitely would have again.
