4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This is a very deep, complex and impressive East Coast IPA. Seems to be very heavy on the Simcoe hops. When poured in a glass looks similar to DFH 120. Cloudy. There is a lot going on in this beer. Alcohol is well hidden. People have written that there is a huge malt backbone, but I myself found only a medium amount of malts while being balanced slightly to the hoppy side. Tastes similar to Stone Ruination, but heavier on the alcohol. Overall, this is an excellent DIPA and worth seeking out.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
hazy dark orange with a thin beige head. heavy, oily, almost syrupy, body with medium-high carbonation.
aroma: rich layered caramel and toffee malts, woodsy piney silage hops, bready yeast, and faint fruity esters.
taste: bready munich malt with a touch of caramel sweetness up front, then a rush of minty piney hops flowing over melon and black currant hop candy runs through the center, but it fades fairly quickly into a sticky finish where bright spearmint battles it out against the burnt sugars of dark crystal malt for the final impression.
I’d like it better if they dropped the crystal 60, but the minty-ness of the hops is unsurpassed in any other beer I’ve had.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
22oz. bomber: This one pours a clear, orange hued amber color. There was a small off-white that doesn’t linger long but does leave some lacing. Hint of sweetness to the nose. Caramel, fruits on top, but there is a large amount of underlying hops. Some spices also. Good taste. Definitely a good hop bite to it. Mainly citrus and pine. A bit of sweetness peeking through in the finish. Lacking a bit of smoothness, however. It is good, but a touch on the harsh side with taste. Worth trying.

from notes: Middle of the road East Coast IPA. When poured in a glass looks similar to DFH 120. Cloudy. There is a lot going on in this beer. Alcohol is well hidden. People have written that there is a huge malt backbone, but I myself found only a medium amount of malts while being balanced slightly to the hoppy side. Tastes similar to Stone Ruination, but less hoppy and heavier on the alcohol. Average.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
[Rated 08/20/2009] Bottle. Pours amber with medium-sized, white head. Aroma is of hops and citrus, but it’s not very developped. Flavor starts out sweet and then turns very hoppy -- more like earthy-hoppy rather than citrus-hoppy. But it’s very pleasant and smooth. But the best part is the very long finish that it leaves, it stays for minutes. Overall, a nice IPA. Doesn’t stand out, but is very pleasant and drinkable and deserves the rating.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Sweet and fruity on the nose, with herbal elements -- a little spearmint. Pours a dark gold with a cream-colored head and lace. Huge hoppy punch on the front of the mouth, but some sweetness on the middle; finishes clean and herbal. There’s that mint thing again. Quite good.
