Hangover (1057) - Atlanta, Alabama, USA - OCT 30, 2010
Pours a cloudy amber with a thin white head. Pine and citrus hops with a slightly sweet malty aroma. Flavor is grapefruit, floral hops, caramel and a bit of toastiness before the huge bittering middle hits. Hops smack through to the finish and there is lingering malty sweetness. Solid and very drinkable.

Bottle. Pours a cloudy orange brown with a small white head. Aroma of bready malts, caramel malt, sweet tea. Flavor of caramel malt, tropical fruits, unsweetened iced tea, bitter hops and citrus hops. A pretty good IPA, not my personal favorite hop combination but enjoyable. 7/4/7/4/14 [3.6/5]

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - SEP 26, 2010
Bomber. Pours a hazy dark copper with small but persistent offwhite head. The aroma is lovely, subtle fruity hops with notes of grapefruit, tangerine, date, cotton candy, and a bit of toasty malt. The flavor is surprising with the assertive bitterness... off to a good start. There is a fruity melon, strawberry, and tangerine mix in there with a toasty backbone. Toward the finish is takes on more of a date and fig sweetness behind piney bitterness that lingers for quite a while. Pretty good stuff.

jgb9348 (4661) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - SEP 11, 2010
Rich, dense copper coloured body with a super hazy orange glow and a thin tan head. Aroma of bright, strong, high alpha acid hops, a touch of citrus and a lot of pine - nice and cloying! Medium-bodied; Strong, super assertive and bittering hops that hit like metal and resin. Very nice and pungent bitterness at the finish with a touch of light herbal sweetness, but a lot of hops, a good balance of malt and way more hops - nice. Overall, a super potent and very hoppy finish with a good malt balance, slight amount of sweetness, but this one really is all about the hops. Probably as hoppy as you can get for a beer with this gravity - but it’s well enjoyed by me! I’d recommend this for people who REALLY like hops, but don’t necessarily like Imperial IPAs (like me). This one is lighter in alcohol than those, but still high. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Ye Olde Spirit Shop in Frederick, Maryland on 29-July-2010, sampled at home in Washington on 11-September-2010 (9 year anniversary).
