I just want you all to know that I really really really wanted to dislike this beer. I mean címon, Pyramid....Iíve never been a huge fan of the flavored hef let alone the limited selection of tap beers at their alehouse in downtown seattle. But you know what? This one is really good. Pouring a beautiful copper with thick foamy head, and wafting of resinous piney and citrus hops. Light caramel sweetness balances the very smooth bittering, they state it as 80 ibus and it sure does not seem like it at all. Very well balanced. The 8.5% is done nicely and does not give off any hot or harsh flavors. A relative bargain at the grocery store for less than $3 per bomber! Grab it now!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
deep amber/copper with a cream head. fruity, sweet, piney, chewy, and resinous hops on the nose. not bad on the palate, chewy malts upfront followed by a bitter sticky hop flavor in the finish. not bad, not the greatest, definitely worth buying a single of to try it.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Beer may have had quality-control problems. Bought 2010-2011 220z bottle. Minimal carbonation/head, very dark in color, and taste finishes harsh. Not an enjoyable beer overall plan to try again.

UPDATED: JAN 23, 2011 12oz bottle
Deep copper, head disappears quickly. Tropical fruit hop aroma - slightly sweet malt fends off the bitterness. There are much better DIPAs out there, this one is mediocre.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
2010-11 bottle from Pyramid. Standard orangy amber-copper hued with a healthy whitish head. Nice lacing. Nice neutral yeast beneath a chewy malt spine and rich bitter thick hoppiness. Some tropical fruit notes. Balanced but Hop aroma lacks as compared to previous draught tastings. Labels suck but I am not rating based on label.
