3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a clear yellow, just a tinge of green unless I am imagining it. Nice white foam, leaves behind quite a bit of lacing. Aroma is grassy and hoppy, a hint of citrus fruit. Taste is very bold, sweet and hoppy, more citrus fruit although subdued, and the alcohol quite noticable but not unpleasantly so. Quite bitter on the finish, again in a good way. Great stuff.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

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

Pours a clear bright orange with great head. The smell of dirty grapefruit and pine, with a small amount of esters dominate the aroma. No single hop variety comes through in the taste. All of the hops kind of mesh together in pure bitter harmony. An almost indescribable bitterness. Long lasting and dry on the palate. This is a fine cognac of beers. Superb!!!!

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.

Bottle, 355ml. Clear golden/amber with a beautiful frothy/creamy offwhite head. Aromas of floral hops, tropical fruits, caramel, resin. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Smooth and creamy.

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.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
From the bottle to a tulip. Clear golden honey amber sunshine. The head set up and hung around while I putzed around the kitchen wrapping up and headed to the sofa. It stayed thick and foamy teasing me to punch a hole through and draw out my first quaff of the nectar tucked away beneath. The nose was tame, hoppy. Here we go.....smooth, sweet, big and round in the mouth. The malt and hop interplay helps to distract from the warmth growing in my mouth and tummy...tastefully boozy...long well balanced finish that never really reaches a horizon, but fades gracefully as you contemplate the experience...yum

Huge beer but incredibly smooth and alcohol well hidden. For the name didn't get that much hop explosion. Sweet malt and torpedo like hops. Good beer but not that special or complex.
