Bottle from Bradleys. Clear amber pour with little head. Citrus hop aroma with pine and grass. Really bitter pine that lasts and lasts. Not toomuch malt for the style. Nice.

Wow, this is one heavyweight Double IPA. Very calm head and huge floral aroma. Dense and syrupy on the palate. Not as astringent as say Torpedo IPA but it is much more bitter. The malts help with the complexity. I get caramel with fruity esters. Then a huge piney resiny hops blast....lingers on. Splendid.

Pours a deep amber. Rich, concentrated hop aroma. Funky, but almost bad funky. Very silky mouthfeel. You can tell its high gravity but doesn't have the hot boozy bite I was expecting. A decent beer but not all that well balanced.

Big aroma of cedar, and pine hops with some hops that are more earthy and muddled. Malt presence is clearly in the background and it has a hint of pineapple as well. Excellent aroma. Looks very pretty with a slightly crimson hue with a big tuft of plain white bubbles. Tastes piney, more malty than I expected with virtually no bitterness except for the aftertaste. Excellent palate, silky smooth, one of the best I have ever found in an IPA. If you have not tried this beer, you must buy it immediately. I could drink this again and again.

UPDATED: JUN 22, 2016 So damn bitter. Stays on your tongue for a good 3-4 minutes. It’s like that girlfriend that keeps whipping you but you know you like it!!! Even though it’s so abusive I seek it out every year. Making love to you was never second best...

Bottle, 355ml. A clear amber beer with a medium size white foamy head. Aroma is of hops, pine resin and floral notes. Taste is bitter with a strong hoppy finish. Medium bodied with some carbonation. Somewhat dry and astrigent. Floral aftertaste and well-balanced.

Pours a deep dark orangish amber color. Aromas of big hop action, sweet malts, and more hops. Flavor has some bready maltsy tastes with nice grapefruit and floral hop taste. This is one hoppy sumbitch.

Muss diese Kritik leider aus meiner Erinnerung verfassen. Mein Kumpel Micha brachte mir 2015 zwei Flaschen von seinem USA Trip mit. THANX!!!! Das Bier tatsächlich so wie ein IIPA mit 100IBUs und 10,4% Alkohol sein sollte. Mächtig & Kräftig. Aber auch nicht so außergewöhnlich wie erwartet. Hoffe ich komme irgendwann nochmal in den Genuss.
