Pours a light amber with a fluffy white head. Aroma of grassy hops, some citrus. Taste is pretty smooth with good malt, definite hop spice. Pretty nice palate for how bitter it is.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: MAY 5, 2013 Pours a clear pale gold with mostly lasting head and good lacing. Aroma is a little malt, moderate hops, and some earthy sawdust. Taste is sweet, then right into a strong and slightly offensive pine resin taste, with earth and dust that isnít assisted by the extremely dry palate. The dust subsides in the aftertaste, leaving behind a hint of malt/hop balance, but a little too bitter and dry for my liking. Way too many better DIPAs out there to seek this out again.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle. Pours a clear light orange color with a big foamy head that fades very slowly. The nose is mosiac hops and nothing else. The body is light, and the flavor bitter and dry. I didnít particularly care for the meld of these flavors.

0.9 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
12 oz bottle. Pours clear straw gold with a big fluffy white head that retains well and laces the glass.
The aroma is a lot of plasticky onion with some dank peppery hops and a little sweet malt.
The flavor is a little sweet bready malt followed by a ton of vegetal plasticky green onion that has decent bitterness. The mouthfeel is medium bodied and a bit watery.
Overall, I donít care for this at all. Itís a bunch of watery onioney / garlicky hops (summit?). Like a very poor manís Gubna. From reading other reviews, I wondered if I got a bad one, since all I get is onion and no fruity piney hops. But the 6 pack tasted the same - I dumped one of them. It tasted similar on draft too, just more subdued and watery.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aggressive hop aroma and aggressive bitterness to this one. Not very complex - I donít get any of the expected aromas and flavors from the mosaic and calypso additions. Just lots of Centennial. Bitterness is pine resin and grass. Body was nice and carbonation was spot-on. A good DIPA, but very one-dimensional.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at Taphouse/Queensway. Golden bronze and clean for an IIPA. Thin but well sustained head. The aroma is quite subtle, but this drinks with a robust, oily hoppy character, well balanced with a firm malt backdrop. Very easy to quaff. (#4970, 4/4/2012)

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle, pours a clear golden with a big white head. Aroma is very musty, full of armpits, peach, some mild tropical fruits and light biscuity malts. Flavour brings out truckloads of peaches, citrusy hops, and dry biscuity malts. There is a strange mustiness to it all that I canít really pinpoint. The peach is dominating, along with mildly citrusy hops. Nice and dry body. Good stuff.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
This oneís better than Ranger, because it packs more alcohol power behind the super hops. The hops are bitter and citrusy.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Light caramel with white, sloppy head. Mostly pine and resin aromas. Spruce/pine needles upfront and then a weirdly sweet aftertaste.
