Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - APR 25, 2008
Draft at the brewpub. Aroma is plenty fruitty with papaya and tangerine. Flavor is a nice mix of hoppy and fruitty with a decent hop bite. On the bitter fruit side than the malt side.

Resiny. Resin when I sniff it, resin coated the eyeball when gazing at the cloudy 12 oz. tulip; before it even hit the tongue I could tell there was going to be some sort of resiny stickiness that might try to seal my lips after one sip. This deceptive stickiness obviously confused the poor soul who rated this last,as it is not an underattenuated residually sweet DOUBLE IPA; quite dry in fact. One question KeithD, have you ever actually done that with a Sierra? Nice comparison, really, if you haven’t I think you should try that, and then try this beer again.

Muddy light amber color. Huge hoppy aroma, fruity (bitter oranges) and resiny. Medium body strength, malty, huge hopping, resiny and fruity, with light astringency. Excellent.

Brewso (238) - Mt Kisco, New York, USA - NOV 25, 2007
On Tap at Piece- This is a very well done double ipa. Dark yellow appearance in a tulip glass. Beautiful bouquet of citrus and flower hops and a nice malt profile. Slightly more bitter than I would prefer but still expertly crafted.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - NOV 18, 2007
On tap at the brewpub on 6/20/07: Pours a transparent copper orange with a small froth of well-lacing light tan head. Aroma boasts big fresh resiny hoppiness with a nice sweet toasty maltiness. Body has good sweet caramel maltiness and fresh piny hoppy balance with nice citrusy notes. A good double IPA.

BBB63 (6474) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - NOV 14, 2007
Tap at Piece: Hazy medium golden hue with a mostly lasting frothy head and okay lace. The aroma has notes of pineapple and orange zest esters, a slight resiny and herbal hops vapour, some biscuity and sweet malt too.

The taste is a balanced display of fruity and herbal hop bitterness kept in check mostly by pale and crystal malt. Some Grains of Paradise peppery notes on the finish. The mouth feel is aggressive and biting around the edges, medium-bodied and a lingering metallic aftertaste. All in all a very nice IPAish brew and am I glad to not missed it this time. Get ya some. (Still don’t get the whole Egyptian thing though)

(Draught) Pours a clear yellow body with moderate off-white head. Aroma of syrupy pineapple, peaches, light perfume, and grapefruit. Flavor of citrusy/mango hops, caramel, and toffee.
