3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Deep copper/amber with a small white head. Heavy hop aroma, malty, vinegar, and caramel. Flavor is rather bitter. Herbal hops, light citrus, and caramel malts. Full bodied. I donít like the vinegar in the aroma, but it tastes fine and is a decent IIPA.

Tap at Thrash Zone. Dry hopped at the brewery with centennial hops. Strong hop presence in the aroma, molasses, some herbal, and burnt sugars. Strong hops in the flavor as well, sweet malty molasses, bitter hops, herbal notes finish it up. Fairly thick body. Though this is a good brew I found the combination of the flavors a little annoying at the end of the pint. Still, Iíd order it again.

Almost clear deep amber beer. Big pale cream coloured head. Smooth palate, slightly soft and dry. Big caramel malt, very prominent and semi sweet. Hops bring sweetish tangerine and pine. Semi dry finish with a mildly bitter linger. Unusual, very caramel!

9% †On tap at the Ibaraki Bakuon fest 2013. A copper brown color, a nice citrus hop aroma, very fruity with grape notes, possibly Nelson Sauvignon? More fruity than bitter which is what I enjoy. A really nice IPA with herbal, fruity & floral notes-good stuff.

Hazy orange body, filmy cream head. Crispy Clementine nose continues on a unripened sweetness, decent rigourous bitter throughout. Big bitter maltiness puts the sweetness under the kosh on the finish.
