GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - DEC 26, 2010
Pours a lasting head of a caramel color. smells of citrus and white candy. Full nectar with creamy effers. A bulky heavyweight delivering a wallop of a hop slam. Not sweet and a bit salty, this brew is tasty.

Chlorine and mineral / wet rocks aroma. A hint of spruce. Appears clear amber orange. Sweats on the outside of the glass. Flavor is heavy wood hops. A little too one-note for me, though not unpleasant. Some floor cleaner. I could have used a little malty respite; instead the malts are burnt pumpernickel. Feels thick, with a little bite on the end. Itís double-barrell bitterness. I do wish it had been a little more balanced.

blipp (6326) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - JUN 16, 2010
Bottle. Pours orange with an off white head. Spicy/piney hop aroma, with some toffee like malty notes. The flavor has slightly harsh hop profile, not too bad but it could be more refined. Decent enough.

Hawksfan17 (890) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 11, 2010
Pours amber with a frothy white head. Spicy hops aroma with hints of fruit. Some notes of fruit in the taste but the flavor is overwhelmingly bitter and that holds for a while in the palate.

mesperon (205) - Hillsdale, New Jersey, USA - APR 10, 2010
Hazy reddish amber with fluffy head and sticky lace. Weak aroma of piney, and slightly resiny and citrus hops. Fuller feel with medium carbonation. Strong bitter bite to start- orange peel and vegetable taste. Develops into Piney hops, with some herbal and citrussy notes. Long bitter grapefruit finish. Good, but expected more from the promise of the label.

chriso (7428) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 23, 2010
22oz bomber bottle, tasted in December 2009. Hazy orange colour. Big flowery hops throughout. Strong grapefruit and pine elements in the flavour. Bitter, very lingering aftertaste lingers very long. A good, sturdy DIPA without really scaling the heights - balancing malt is in rather short supply.

AmEricanbrew (6004) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - FEB 5, 2010
Clear copper kettle color/ fleeting head. beautiful malt powder sweet, floral, pine aromas. medium body. Citrusy bitter hop flavors with sweet caramel to balance. drying alcohol to finish. decent.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - DEC 15, 2009
Bottle, a messy hop head ale that left me rather unsure. Huge pine bitterness, sharp hop resins. Some fruity notes, citrus, apple, and pineapple notes that are short lived due to the hash bitter pine, spices, and caramel malty warming. A bit over the top.

MesandSim (7118) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 12, 2009
A Mes rate. Bottle at home.
Hazy amber with a off white film topping. So close to really enjoyable but there is a very clear soapy character that runs throughout. The hops are clearly good, I just dont think the blend sits together that well. I know there are things in here that I really like but itjust doesnít sit right. The more I drink the better it gets certainly. The malt is really good and carries it well, the bitterness has excellent length, itís just that soap. Sorry folks.
