4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
a buckeyesammy pick. great lacing and a hazy light amber. grassy and pithy and it smells a bit like a farm. the only thing lacking is the mouth feel. amassing top-notes of citrus and funk with a moderate bitter finish. was expecting more pine but it is a great concept and well executed.

Bomber into pint glass. Pours a hazy golden orange with a nice and thick white head. Strong aromas of grapefruit and pine, hint of honey. Taste is sweet malt and honey early with huge grapefruit and piney hops dominating after leaving an intense bitterness in the finish. Medium to full chewy body. Nice IIPA, not as smooth as others though.

4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: MAY 28, 2010 Re-rating 5/28/10: Bottle. Powerhouse aroma of pine, grass, flowers, honey, mint. As opposed to my first go-round with this beer, this is a delightful and memorable olfactory experience. Where I didn’t taste maltiness last time, I do, a deep honeylike undercurrent - there is so much going on here. Verrrry bitter, yet very sweet at the same time. I sure am glad I picked up another bottle.
Old rating: To say "I expected this to be better" is to ignore the fact that it is an excellent beer. But I prefer the Shark Attack quite a bit. Not enough balance for me, just a hair too little maltiness to counter the hops. In a competitive double-IPA market, there are quite a few I like just as much or more.

Pours semi-cloudy orange with visible hop sediment. Almost no head even with a vigorous pour. Aroma is very piney and grapefruity. Taste is a bit worty, with an intense bitter finish. I dig this but it needs more carb.

Very nice hoppy aromatics blended with malt. Poured with a slight head on a deep rich amber body. Hoppy complexity on the palate balanced by a nice amount of maltiness. Much more drinkable than I first imagined it would be.

pours hazy copper. aroma is hoppy with grapefruit, tangerine, pine resin, and some dark crystal. taste is grapefruit zest and tangerine citrus with resin and dank natures. there is a supporting dark crystal malt but is a showcase hop. finish is fantastically bitter that is grapefruit rindy.

On tap at the Liberty. Pours a orange color with a nice white head to it. Smell is hoppy with a little bit of citrus. Extremly bitter bitter on first taste with a citrus pine finish. Not nearly as good Wipe Out

Cloudy golden pour. Lemony Citrus aroma. Lots of hope flavor, grapefruit, spice, along with a good malt backbone with a hint of sweetness. Very nice.
