Growler thanks to JCwatts. Pours out a nice copper color with a thin white head. Aroma is of caramel malts, and light citrus hops. Taste is similar to aroma, notes of citrus hops, light grain and some caramel with a slightly bitter finish.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at brewpub. Golden pour with amber hue, smallish head and some lacing. Some light caramel notes and some toastiness with a pretty good kick at the back end. This reminded me a bit of the old SN Anniversary ale. A bit light on the malts and so a liitle one dimensional on hops. Okay.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Milly’s Tavern. Pours a deep amber color with a thin off white head. One of the darkest IPAs I have come across. Aroma is citrus hops toned down considerably with caramel malt. Moderate bodied with a nice bitter finish. Flavor is hops with an earthy background. I would call it a "dirty" IPA.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A dark reddish amber IPA with no head. A lightly floral hoppy aroma with light caramel malt, smooth. In mouth, a very hoppy IPA, loads of grapefruits, lacking malt, drying the mouth, not bad but a bit imbalanced. Medium bodied. On tap at the brewpub, April 5, 2010.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep clear reddish brown pour with a one finger white head that leaves a beautiful lattice of lacing. Aroma is citrus, earth, grapefruit, toast, caramel, tangerine, and mandarin. Flavor is smackingly bitter with lots of orange, grapefruit, caramel, and toast. Like the Hopzilla, sweetness is low for the style, allowing a full gamut of hop flavors to prevail. Palate is medium to full bodied, with lively carbonation and a resinous bitter finish.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Milly’s and it pours amber red with a thin but long lasting head and nice clarity. The aroma is rich with hops and a background of sweet malts. A nice full bodied mouthfeel and a taste that is hoppy through and through, strong and bitter. It is one of Milly’s better recipes

Enjoyed at the brewpub with the brewer. A 78 IBU IPA and full even creamy mouthfeel, drinkable. Mahogoney coloured body with a white soapy head, and very lacey. For hopheads.Appropriate carbonation.

Pours a lgiht amber with a thin head. Aroma is a nice fruity hop character- clean citrusy hops, a bit green but not sign of the metallicyness I get form some cascade beers, Flavor has hitns of fruity amarillo, and cascade, floral zesty and citrus- light pine needle as well- ok malt backbone and a pretty good hop bitterness.
