Tasted from bottle -- 22/10/10 on the cap. Tasted March 2, 2009. Gorgeous hop aroma of pine and some grapefruit. Great golden color. It states 6.9% alcohol and you can get the bite with the hops on the finish. But it balances nicely with the malty sweetness. It is hard to stop drinking it. I am very impressed and love this beer. Wish it was a little cheaper to be able to enjoy more often, but it is still well worth it.

Draught at EBF 2008. Hazy orange brown coloured with a small off white head. Fruity aroma of hops, pine needles, grass and grape fruits with notes of caramel. Fruity flavour of hops, grass and pine needles. Dry hoppy finish.

Hazy brown with tiny off white head. Sweet aroma with loads of hops, caramel and toasted malt. Sweet flavour with toasted malt, caramel, grapefruit, pine and hoppy notes. Ends with massive bitterness. Excellent!

JorisPPattyn (7772) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - SEP 19, 2008
UPDATED: SEP 30, 2008 Draught Little head left, red-hazy amber beer. Extremely dry-hoppy nose. Caramel, fruit cake. Bitter-hoppy, near metallic, but balanced by good cakey malts. Some fruityness, bit oily from the hops, vinous. Impressive IIPA, and essentialy American - including in the never-ending name.

Bottle. One of my absolute favorites but from this bottle unfortunately not as fresh as I´ve had it before. Color is amber with a light yellow head. Aromas of gooseberry, lemon and pine. Taste of lemon,and herbs. Very fresh with a long lasting bitterness and good carbonation, medium body.

mkel07 (3017) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - NOV 28, 2010
330ml bottle. Thick fluffy head of sandy coloured foam. Solid amber and honey coloured base. Caramel and butterscotch aroma that is very fragrant and inviting. Full flavour with mild bitterness and lingering on the palate. Very nice.

Pours a nice golden color with a foamy head. Has nice citrus taste which compliments the fresh strong hop taste. A very nice west coast style IPA. Purchased it in a growler at Holiday beverage. My biggest complaint is they ran out of it.
