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.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JUL 10, 2007 Pours brown with a tanned head. Super dry. Mildly piny. Tiny hint of liquirish in the malt profile. Very full bodied. Strong fruityness and alcohol flavors. Low carbonation. Long dry finish with a small hint of alcohol. Nicely balanced ´cause I like IIPAs on the hoppy side. Maybe a bit too much alcohol. (but I´ll bet that that is not so apparent if you are on the 3rd/4th beer.

What a hoppybomb. Great soft carbonation, but also refreshing. For a 10 % beer, it goes well fast down
