3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle; poured a murky dark amber with an off white head. Aroma of fruit, caramel, alcohol, earth and a bit of pine. Flavor had a nice aura to it; caramel, fruit, earth and alcohol. Some earthiness. A pretty solid beer.

4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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. It’s double-barrell bitterness. I do wish it had been a little more balanced.

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.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.
