4.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
UPDATED: AUG 3, 2013 My local beer store just got this back in stock. This beer tastes great, even when it starts getting warm. It’s bitter and sweet at first, the harmony is perfect. It stays bitter on the palate, but not overwhelmingly bitter. It doesn’t have a perfect smell, but I get a lot of fruit (mostly banana, anyone else? Haha) and floral aromas. (Sweet, bitter, fruity, floral, mellow)

Pours a clear coppery orange with a thick creamy off white head. Light carbonation and plenty of lacing. Aroma had notes of caramel and malts. Thick syrupy texture. Fairly bitter but not harsh. Somewhat dry. big warm alcohol finish with a hop bite. Not as enjoyable as I had hoped for.

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.

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.

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...
