4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: AUG 30, 2007 Could anyone find a better beer for rating number 100. A great double IPA.
Dark brown with brownish head and much carbonation. Typical IPA aroma of hops. Taste sweet and bitter with a very good palate and good aftertaste.
By looking at my ratings this should be the best double IPA, but I guess I´ve rated this type lower earlier.
Rating 8 - 4- 9- 5- 16
Rerated 300807: Still a very nice beer. My rating has changed a little bit but not much. appearance perfect huge pale brown head long lasting. Aroma hopps pine grapefruit and also some malty sweetness. This beer also includes a lot of malt which add a lot to me. Downrated a little due to greater experience, but still a very nice beer.
And I´ll raise my glass for michael Jackson. RIP.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle thanks to Papsoe: Rusty brown color with a tan head. Aroma of alcohol, molassas, earthy hops. Flavor, more malty than expected, earthy and citrus hop notes, kind of bitter, but the warmth of the alcohol overwhelmed it a bit. It’s a balanced IIPA.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Nice dark muddy color to it. Reminds me of a tamarind juice i once had. Head minimized pretty quick, but left a nice lacing on the glass. initiall hopy taste which then turned yeasty, and sweet. I dont know what year this bottle was but the carbonation needed to be added to it again.

Bottle thanks to Dorwart at DB’s. Light brown color with a small off white head. Aroma of pine and grapefruit hops along with some caramel malt and a whiff of alcohol. Flavor was sweet and caramelly, with enough bitter grapefruit hops to cut through it. Warming alcoholic finish.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle shared by Mullman at Oktoberfest at Dickinsonbeer’s. Poured a dark amber (quite dark for a IIPA) with a white head. Sweet vinous cany and grapefruit hop aroma. Flavor is bitter grapefruit hops up front, leading to a sweet yeasty finishi. Surprisingly malty for the style, but very nicely done with good hop flavor.
