Bottle thanks to Blutt59. Pours a nice looking amber with a beige head. Aroma of lots of pine & grapefruit, some malt. Flavor is piney, some fruit, malt, a little pepper. Mouth feel is medium body with medium-high carbonation. Overall, a tasty IPA.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - SEP 10, 2009
Pours a transparent orange amber with a thin, wispy lacing white head. Aroma of sweet toasty caramel malts and a hint of light fruity notes with a good fresh grapefruity hoppy nose. Starts with good fullness and fine carbonation with plenty of caramel malty sweetness and a good hop balance before a bittersweet slightly drier finish. A pretty good malt-heavy IIPA.

Tejas (882) - Dallas, Texas, USA - SEP 10, 2009
Big beer. Sorta harsh alcohol flavor at first which I think might have fried my palate. Seemed to get considerably smoother and piney as things went along. Would like to try again.

Kinz (3365) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - SEP 6, 2009
UPDATED: NOV 14, 2011 Medium orange, good head, nice lace, mostly clear. Aroma is gummy malts and citrus hops, grapefruit, some pine. Flavor is gummy malts, an odd tea hop flavor, followed by a pine accented finish. Tea accented hops unfortunately dominate. Almost like the "lively grapefruit and citrus notes" had faded and gone off a bit, resulting in this. Not bad, but not great. Another RERATE from Richmond 16th. Frighteningly enough, the numbers were the exact same. So were the comments, although I felt the hops had more of a floral tone than citric this time around.

merlin48 (656) - Jenkins, Kentucky, USA - SEP 6, 2009
Bomber pours a mostly clear orange amber body with a two finger beige head. Aroma is grassy hops and grapefruit. Taste has a dominant grassy and leafy hop bitterness. Subtle caramel maltiness struggles to balance. The hop profile is so grassy it ventures into cat urine territory, a trait I’ve previously noticed only in Bells Hopslam. Alcohol remains well hidden throughout. A topnotch DIPA.

Cavie (3844) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - SEP 4, 2009
Bottle courtesy of blutt59. Clear orange gold pour. Fair amount of head. Fat hop profile, fresh and lively. Some musty hops but for the most part well mixed. Sweet and sour hops. Taste provides for a hopped spice feeling. Decent with a tingly dry taste.
