3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
tap at six rivers. i dunno, i thought it was okay. lots of pine in the aroma and some orange mango cordial. very sweet, tasted a bit like the lemon and brown sugar pancakes my dad makes. but it was a pleasant tangy sweetness and interesting to taste a double ipa without a massive bitter finish

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tap@Six Rivers. Sweet and hoppy, but without the bitter finish that a good DoubleIPA should, still pretty tasty, maybe i scored it too low, but i didn’t get into it that much.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: MAR 10, 2007 At Hops in Humboldt Micro-Brew Festival in 4 oz glass. This is an update to my previous rating which was based on a 22oz bottle from the COOP. Nice dark color with a great foamy tan long lasting head. Big powerful nose of hops with fruits. Somewhat sweet but with good hop flaver. Excellent mouthfeel with a really great finish. This was a slight improvement over my last try, and my rating is upgraded a little for the aroma. March 9. 2007. Another re-rate. Draft pour. Seems better than ever and love the fruity nose.
