jennajlover (107) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 15, 2006
Big bubbly cloudy double IPA, incredibel hop aroma and flavor, slight sweet from use of malts, although the body was perfect for such a big brew. Nice bitter crisp finish

Bottle shared with HogTownHarry -- courtesy of DarkElf. Pours a murky, bubbly, orange-yellow with a spare diminishing white head and some floaties of various sizes -- looks almost like grapefruit juice. Very nice, interesting aroma: itís quite hoppy but also very sweet, like grapefruit and candy. Flavourís even better. Itís similar to the aroma: citrus hops and a candy sweetness but the hops dominate more (which is to my preference) and thereís a nice big bitter finish -- very well balanced. Alcoholís very well hidden. Has a good body and goes down pretty smooth. I must admit I was expecting better but itís still damn fine IIPA.

oh. my. god. thank you mitch. Appearance is completely opaque amber with blonde accents and blonde head (1/4 inch creamy almost nitro like head), and very long lasting head as well. aroma is carmel malt, some pine, orange, corriander, wheat malt, grapefruit, and malt like you would put in milkshakes. some sweet light fruit hints of lemon, apple, green apple (to be specific), and spruce topped off with carmel malt. has some lemon zest and pear flavors. there is nothing abuot this that is boring. a new flavor with each sip, usually fruity, with extremely unbelievable wet west coast hops, that arent overpowering but enlightening. possibly needs a bit of age, but only a smidge. mouthfeel is smooth and creamy with light carbonation. The alcohol isnt present in the flavor, but it kind of smacks you in the face after half a bottle (and this is a 12 oz). amazing malt backbone. This and Yulesmith have been the only two IIPAs that seem to be able to amaze me.

HogTownHarry (6063) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - JUN 6, 2006
UPDATED: JUN 7, 2006 Bottle (12oz). Shared with blankboy, his bottle via trade with DarkElf. Been looking forward to this for a long time. Poured very murky yellowy-orange, small bubbly head, plenty of hop sludge and chunksin the bottom. Aroma of grapefruit, citrus, tons of malt, hints of lactose - nice. Taste starts very sweet, candy and fruit, then waves of resiny hops come over the top - balanced mostly bitter finish, very grapefruit pithy. Decent body, mouthfeel lightly carbonated and acidic/astringent - long finish. Very nice - Iíve had better, and I suspect this one shines brighter on tap or when itís fresher - very nice

Thanks and cheers to DarkElf! Great guy by the way. Pour was hazy golden with a smalis whiyte head. Nose was all grapefruit, man, sweet. This was a sticky hoppy tart and tangy brew. Good balance, and the mouth feel was like syrup.

On Tap @ PP Carlsbad: Iím going off memory, because it was about a year ago that I last had this beer. But, im here to tell you it was a wonderful beer, while it lasted. Thatís about all I can say about it. Just a wonderful IIPA.

Papsoe (25089) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 9, 2006
(Bottle 35,5 cl) Slightly hazy amber with a creamy, white head leaving some laces. Incredibly fresh, citrusy, hoppy nose. Medium-bodied, some caramel and very citrusy, grapefruity acents. Not overly bitter - pleasant. 220406

Bartzilla (532) - La Mesa, California, USA - MAY 8, 2006
UPDATED: MAY 9, 2006 Iíve only had one pint glass of this in this beerís short life span and sure wouldnít mind some more. Alas, thatís not going to happen. Pretty much a perfect double in all aspects. Like I said, I only had it once, canít be bothered to take notes while Iím drinking, but would drink as much of this as possible.
