22oz bottle, world greatest cap. Pale amber color. Tall, rocky, white froth. Long lacing. Hop floral aroma. Spicy hops, loads of resin & citrus oil, and grapefruit. This is what an American Double IPA should smell like! Sweet caramel malts, toasted grain flavor. Whoa, thatís a lot of hops. Death-by-Hops ainít no joke. Heavy on the bitterness. Deep earthy hop flavor. Finishes with a bitterness similar to biting a grapefruit skin. Resin, citrus, and pine... oh my. (3449)

Strong floral aroma. Citrus flavor that lingers on the tongue for quite some time. This beer would be perfect if it were a bit clearer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
22oz bottle, shared by Jay. Bottle suggests that we enjoy this before November 2012. Thin off-white head. little lace. Clear amber color. Very interesting spicy hop aroma. What is this Iím tasting? Thyme? Basil? Big toasty malts, after the herbacious hops. Big bitter taste, with a spicy bite. Very dry finish, light smooth carbonation. Interesting IPA, I give it credit for having such an unusually herbacious hop profile. But itís a lot less fruity than the description might suggest, I canít really get any fruit taste out of it. Just a good, pleasant spice. Reminds me of the Saison Du Buff.

Bottle shared by Lunch. Thanks Paul.
This brew appears hazy and orange with a thin white head. The aroma is hop forward and initially smells enticing. However, lurking behind the hop scents is an odd, vegetal smell. The flavor is just wrong and harsh. Weird, off-putting, sulfur and earth flavors overrun any potential pleasant tastes I was hoping to find. Not a good beer.

Bittersweet chocolate truffle nose. They claim itís floral, but I just donít smell it. Medium-light body. More bittersweet chocolate in the middle with some citrus resins in the back. Leaves a lot of sugar on the lips. Very complex, so much going on. Although it has an alcohol and resin aftertaste, which I usually donít care for, I keep going back for that crazy bittersweet chocolate.

Raft at the source. Hazy golden color, white edge head. Arima of scallions, grass, lemon. Taste of lemongrass, bitter pine.
