Bottle that I forgot about in my fridge for a while. Surprisingly still enjoyable! Clear amber pour, lots of white head. Nice hop nose, though perhaps a touch stale. Quite drinkable, dry finish - nice bitterness as well.

UPDATED: JUN 18, 2014 From memory. Had this June 2011. Probably was the first double IPA outside of a beer festival and 90 min. Tasty but nothing amazing. I’ll rerate if they make it again and I can get some.

4.1 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Backlog bottle thanks to so many good ratebeerians. The look is clear, white head, and golden yellowish in color. The smell is super hoppy, so good. right up in your face, citrus. The taste is the same, pine, fruits, citrus, bitterness, and a big hoppiness.

Bottle thanks to adnielsen. Pours a orange golden color with two finger of thick sticky foam. Nose is pine, honey malt and citrus. Palate follows with a heavier grapefruit punch, big grassy bitterness and a heavy round malt sweetness that balances the bitterness nicely.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a bright cloudy yellow with a half finger head and good lacing down the glass.
Smells of citrus with lots of yeasty tones.
Starts off with some citrus and grapefruit. Just a touch of bread then finishes pretty bitter and dry with a grapefruit pith flavor.
Medium carbonation and mouthfeel.
Pretty good. I enjoy the grapefruit flavors although I’ve had a few that have done it better. Still recommended though if you can get it.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from the brewery.Pours a clear light pale orange.Rich short head,lots of lace.
Pungent fresh aroma, bright sharp citrus fruits,spicey-peppery,underlying mild sweetness.
Taste is hoppy,fresh,clean malt,drying alcohol finish-a bit hot almost. Lots of strong sharp hops,piney and stingingly peppery.Citrus in the background.Vapory alcohol in finish. I almost wonder if this is too fresh and needs to chill out with some fridge time.Kinda hot and not the MO malt Im familiar with,maybe with time it will show a little more because at this point its nothing other than hops and alcohol not in a bad way though.
