4.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle pours a rather hazy amber color with very thick off white head. Nose has some very floral hoppy notes with just a hint at some sweet citrus tones to it. Taste is quite bitter with the hoppiness really coming through, though without the sweetness. I quite like it.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Looks like it suffers from some weird chill haze, but otherwise itís tough to knock on this one. Very dense dank hop profile, piney and resinous. On the palate the hops are aggressively bitter but the malts are strong and sweet enough to balance. Really one of the best.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle courtesy of joeneugs, thanks a lot Joe! Pours a clear orange with a fluffy white head that stick arounds for the whole duration it seems and leaves some hot lacing patterns. Aroma is nicely hoppy, with citrusy hops taking the lead quickly followed by pine needles and floral hops. Taste is less sweet than I thought it would be, the commercial description is right. Malt take a backseat here, Iíd have a hard time describing it. Hops are again overwhelming the flavor profile, with juicy and fruity impressions. Mouthfeel is ok, albeit a bit too much carbonated for my liking. Alcohol is noticeable but never annoying/offputting. A really nice IIPA!

Looked like a new thing on the shelf. out of the cooler. Date code rubbed off... It is one of the most sediment filled beers i have ever seen along with one of the most carbonated. Nice bitterness but falls flat, no aroma.

UPDATED: SEP 20, 2013 An absolute hop bomb. A palate destroyer! I love the power of this DIPA and its amazing complexity.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a hazy amber with a white head. Pine, grapefruit, citrus, bitter hops, resin. This is an intensely flavored DIPA. My only complaint is the amount of sediment. Half inch of sediment on the bottom of my glass.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Pours a light copper straw colour with good frothy white head. The aroma has some fruity peach with loads of dank pine, resin, & grapefruit rind, followed by a deliciously oily smooth palate with more pine, resin, white pepper, & lemon zest. The finish is drying with returning hints of peach and delicious lingering grassy hops. This is a wonderfully agressive yet very drinkable DIPA: Outstanding!

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled on 3/14/13
Tasted on 5/12/13 from a capped 650mL bomber bottle purchased at AJís Mesa. Pours hazy but bright orange with a very thick white head that slowly recedes to thick and messy lace. The nose is very nice, dominated by pungent, but soft, floral and citrus pith hops with some caramel malt underlying, and just a touch of a tropical fruit aroma. The flavor is a bit more focused on the light bread caramel malt up front, moving to the floral and citrus pith hops and very nice bitterness. The body is full but not cloying with average, and nicely stinging, carbonation, and a long caramel malt and bitter floral hops finish. This is a top class IPA.
