3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark nut-orange color, small off-white head. Bready, citrusy hoppy aroma. Very malty, bready hoppy flavor. Notes of citrus, but mostly yeasty and alcoholic. Warming, but not kind of IPA I like, Score 4.06 seems quite overrated if judged by this bottle.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A: The beer pours an opaque orange color with a solid finger of white head and some sticky lacing.
S: Initially smells pretty boozy, but that eventually fades and there is a lot of sweet fruit going on here. Pineapple, mango, tangerine, and grapefruit make up the bulk of the hop aroma. A touch of sugar which accentuates the sweetness.
T: Lots of sweet tropical fruit with a moderate level of bitterness to it. Mild pine but plenty of grapefruit and pineapple with a touch of orange. A slight booze creeps in on the back end. There’s a really oily hop feel to this beer.
M: Medium to full in body with a moderate to high carbonation and a lingering bitterness.
D: This used to be one of my favorite DIPAs, but lately I’ve found it to be too sweet. It’s still a good beer, but no longer one of my top choices.

Bottle at "Wining & Dining Tasting" - Thanks to Sune. Cheese aroma & cheese taste - too much cheese, it ruins the beer for me. High hoppy, hop juice, grape, old sour cheese, sharp light unpleasantness. SORRY !!!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JAN 6, 2008 Hazy dull beige. Assertive hop, vague but with hints of peach, lemon and mandarin. Juicy, peachy hop-loaded brew. Light pale malt character, but with loads of miscellaneous tropical fruit, citrus and honey. Smooth, with a bit of a late alcohol splash.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Strong resin hop aroma. Also floral hop. Maybe some light citrus hop. Lots of hop. Hazy orange gold color with a white head that laced strangely. Medium to full body with caramel malt and lots of different hop. It is definitely malty, and it is surely well balanced. I can feel evergreen in my throat. The malt tends to slip away and the hop turns rather piney. Incredibly awesome.
