3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a slightly hazy golden-yellow color with large white bubbles that gather around the edges and dress the glass with lacing. Citrus hops aroma along with some honey malt. Full-bodied, medium carbonation, and a lingering finish. Only a touch of malt sweetness, a burst of hop bitterness, and a clean, dry finish. The hops really shine, though I’ve had some IIPA’s with a stronger aroma. Love the dry finish.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: JAN 20, 2012 I’ve had this a few times, bottle draft etc, and can safely say it is awesome. Just recently went directly to the brewery and had it there and it still is awesome. Pours this gold/ copper colour, with a decent head and leaves incredible lacing. Aroma is, well of hops. Taste is of hops, and they are abundant. It’s slightly bitter, but not in an overpowering way. I suggest everyone try this beauty. It may not be for everyone but give it a shot.

Pours a clear golden color. Aroma of pine, resin, grass. Flavor is all hops. Pine and grass come through. Quite one dimensional. Not too impressed.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: AUG 25, 2011 On tap at Valhalla. Good aroma that grows sweeter as it warms. A dull gold pour with sheet lacing along the glass. Very nice flavor - plenty of spicy, gingery, piny hops & good caramel malt too. Some noticeable sulfites, unfortunately. Also tried a bottle that was less impressive - it seemed lighter and more malty with grassy hops and a touch of orange zest and lemongrass in the flavor.

Long bitter after taste.

Such a beautiful translucient gold. Hoppy aroma of couse. Damn, it’s so smooth with a buttery touch. Creamy hops. These guys make some irresistable brews.

Nice and hoppy with seemingly more grassy notes than anything else. Taste and aroma are both very good but being a double IPA I think I was expecting a bit more. That being said, the price is so reasonable I couldn’t get to upset. Overall a pretty good beer.
