blankboy (6277) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 9, 2006
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: it’s quite hoppy but also very sweet, like grapefruit and candy. Flavour’s even better. It’s similar to the aroma: citrus hops and a candy sweetness but the hops dominate more (which is to my preference) and there’s a nice big bitter finish -- very well balanced. Alcohol’s very well hidden. Has a good body and goes down pretty smooth. I must admit I was expecting better but it’s still damn fine IIPA.

GHBF: Thanks for the taste JoeM and DarkElf for suppling the bottle! I didn’t really take many notes with this tasting, I was enjoying the beer way too much. Did write down the numbers however and a tell tale sign on the wonderfulness of the night. "My taste buds need resurrected", whatever the heck that meant.

Rastacouere (6137) - 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.

HogTownHarry (6130) - 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

Bottle. Caramel malty, citrus, pinetree, hop aroma and taste. Medium to full body with a dry hop finish.

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.

egajdzis (5401) - Spring Mount, 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.

beerguy101 (5290) - 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.

Suttree (5266) - 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!

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - MAY 3, 2008
Bottle, courtesy of Dr. Bill. First 2/3 of the bottle pours pretty clear. The bottom one-third is sludgey. My sample came from that 1/3 so that’s most likely affecting my rating. Aroma is soapy. Also basil, mint tea, and forest smells. My sample is phenolic and slightly acrid in the back of the tongue. Not in its best form.
