3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
I can see why the ratings on this are all over the place. For hop heads, probably a delight. Unassuming aroma, with full on bitterness in the taste, some metallic, some soapy funk. One saving grace is a beautiful pour with nice thick head and lacing.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
This appears to be the same beer..but it is 7% and a regular IPA. Quite dark amber for the typical IPA, with a gorgeous creme coloured thick frothy head. Hoppy hoppy aromas of course it is 105 IBUs.Spicy,herbal type mostly. Extremelly bitter,piney hop flavour far more than the nose let on.After the first sip though the tongue becomes aclimatized and its a very nice long piney delicious bitterness.Malt is very strong also but no enough to balance the hop. OK mouthfeel..not the greates but far from bad.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured from tallboy to glass. Copper hue with creamy tan head that lingered. Suspended particles. Aroma is caramel, pine, yeast, citrus oil, grassy. Mouthfeel is nice with a medium body and crisp carbonation. Taste is sweet followed by a nice hop bitterness that extends through the finish. Oxidation in the finish. Overall this is a decent beer, but is overly yeasty and oxidized. Iím not sure how old the can is (due to a lack of date), so it may be issues with age/handling rather than the brewing.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Slight fruity nose, not much sweetness of malt.
Color is very dark amber almost brown
Taste is super bitter, not much distinction in hop flavor just bitter, little malt flavor to balance this hop beast.
Bitter lingers on the back of tongue for atleast a couple mins.

On tap. Smells like a basic iPA. Tastes basic as well. This isnít bad, but itís easy to move on from this one.

This beer is in "high" demand for a reason! This is a great beer that doesn't blow your mind with the hops or IBU's!

bottle, pours orange red yellow, no head or lacing. no hop nose, smells like a weak malt. attack is thin, not a lot of flavor, finish is very bitter, actually pretty good, dry and clean. too bad the rest of the drinking experience is lame.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at OBF. Pours amber brown with a slight beige head. Aroma is rather floral/citrus. Med body. Flavor is a bit roastier malt than expected, but thereís a lot of citrus and perhaps earthy hop. Hop burn! Finishes almost not dry and quite hoppy/bitter. Good.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
July 2012. 22 oz. bottle. Amber color with a thin white head. There is something with this IPA that throws it off balance. Itís enjoyable and drinkable, but something it doesnít quite come together.
