3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
This brew has a ridiculous bite to it, heavy lemon notes. Smell is bitter and also lemon-heavy, but doesn’t do the flavor justice. Looks awesome, dull orange and opaque. Mouth is pretty standard for a double IPA, thick-ish and oily. Reminds me of Bells Hopslam a bit, taste is quite different but has a similar feel. A real ass kicker, but a great double IPA.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Huge, huge thanks to coyotehunter for this. Pours a golden orange with a one finger head. Smells of citrus, sugar, honey and pine notes. Mouthfeel is thick and oily, taste follows the nose and is really smooth with a wonderful hops bitter. Really well balanced beer. Wish this was available around here.

Pours a hazy amber with a short lived head. Aroma is candied grapefruit, sweet pineapple and mango and some fresh green hops. Flavor is sweet candied hops, fading into pure grapefruit and pine juice. Almost syrupy body while still being nice and dry. Delicious stuff, much better than the last bottle I had.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: SEP 9, 2008 Orange body with a cream colored head. Extremely hoppy aroma with alcohol and a tiny bit of sweetness (dessert/ice wine). The mouthfeel is thick and almost syrupy. The taste is hoppy bitterness that eases up on the finish so it’s a perfect amount of bitter.

4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bottlle. Color: hazy and cloudy gold/light orange. Nice and huge dirty white foam, staying all the time, perfectly lacing glass. Aroma: Just Perfect. Powerfull and amazing flavour. Citrus, mature yellow grapefruit, pines, peach, mango, pineapple, a bit spicy and biscuit. Huge, mighty hoppy bitterness balanced with malty sweetness. Beginning bitter and dry, then bitter and sweet. Hoppy liqueur. Everything what’s great from hops. Mature grapefruit, citrus, pines, mango, some pineapples, florals, a bit spicy, ginger, orange. Full body with sticky texture. Wonderfull long and warming finish. Masterly example of Imperial IPA. One of the gratest beer that i ever tasted.

Real Ale Fest in Chicago. Hophead delight. So citrusy it was almost strawberry-like. Sweet dry follow through Very potent. I'd like to try this with some carbonation to it.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz. bottle. Nice big lasting head. But holy crap, this is a potent IDIPA. The alcohol note was overwhelming and this kind of ruins what may be a great beer. Just one of these was all I could handle. Still, I wouldn’t ban it from the rotation.....

UPDATED: JUL 27, 2013 Great DIPA with a high ABV that is masked well by the tasty hops and malts. This is one of the best beers in this class that I have had so far. Amazingly thick head of bubbles with a strong aroma to begin with. I really enjoyed the cloudy unfiltered appearance of this beer in the glass.
