Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - NOV 18, 2005
Very strong, very hoppy, big in a good way with a great balance of pine and grapefruit notes I like in an IIPA.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - DEC 23, 2005
Bottle for rating #1500: Dark straw, very cloudy and dirty, moderate white head, frothy, fairly nice lacing.   Rich sweet hop nose, graham cracker, slightly floral, a touch piney.   Smooth hop flavor on the tongue, not overly bitter, decent malt base, fairly sweet, very full bodied.   Quick hop bite on the exit, moreso bitter tea leaves, emergence of citrus notes.   Lingering sweetened hop tea on the finish.   Very smooth, palatable, and well balanced.   One of the best Imperial IPAs out there.   Make sure to let this one warm up a bit.   Thanks DarkElf for the numerous bottles you sent my way!

HogTownHarry (6199) - 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 - I’ve had better, and I suspect this one shines brighter on tap or when it’s fresher - very nice

Rastacouere (6155) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 7, 2004
12oz: Clear orange hue, not much head at all, just a white ring. Big orange aroma. Hops in there are extremely oily, resinous. Sweet C-hops galore provide piney, pineapple, and orange flavours. There’s a weird freezing iodine-like outline all the way that, mixed with the honeyish malt, provide perhaps a touch more astringency than I hoped for. Bitterness is aggressive, resinous. High carbonation surprisingly, yet the mouthfeel is rather oily.

Emil (6065) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 27, 2006
Bottle. Caramel malty, citrus, pinetree, hop aroma and taste. Medium to full body with a dry hop finish.

egajdzis (5510) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 10, 2004
Hazy orange gold color with a small off white head, no lacing. Strong citrus, piney, grapefruit hop aroma. Bitter hops, citrus fruits, light alcohol. Very nice IIPA punch. Very enjoyable, I like these west coast IIPAs.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - DEC 7, 2005
Sampled at Oakes’ ’05 Xmas Party
Cloudy, no head or lacing. Nose of fresh orange citrus, piney hops, tart yeasty notes. Very nice. The flavor is smooth, similar and with bright sweet hoppy malts and nice creamy funky yeasty notes in the tail. The finish is balanced and quite quaffable.

Suttree (5407) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - APR 9, 2005
Cloudy yellow, pretty big white head. Sweet & hoppy aroma, with notes of grapefruit and pine. Hops dominate at first - smoky, resiny pine, and ctrus, too. The malt profile emerges toward the end - viscous and slippery, with a subtle sweetness, and a few more notes of smoke. Big & bold, very nice. Thanks to Darkelf for the trade!

Pailhead (5398) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - JUL 17, 2005
Bottle: Courtesy of DarkElf via trade/ Real big sweet and citrusy hops in the aroma. Pours a transparent orange with a small soapy white head. Sweet up front with a hint of apricot and an excellent well balanced citrus hop finish. One of the better balanced IIPA’s I’ve ever had.

beerguy101 (5319) - Newark, California, USA - MAR 6, 2003
Medium orange color. Aroma is floral hops. A big bodied double IPA. Malts are slightly malty and a little sweet. Hops are juicy, very floral and grapefriuty. Bitter without being over the top. Very flavorful, very hoppy, yet it’s still a well balanced beer. Hides the 9.5% alcohol well. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is bitter.
