22oz from MaxxDaddy - thanks, Max! While not as bubbly and lively as some IIPAs on the initial pour, the nose makes up for it with a hop explosion. Super bitter with a piney finish, just the way I like it. But the alcoholís a bit active and the beerís hot. Additionally, things get a bit sticky in places. But itís still quite fine (though not on a par with STís finest, the Jah-va!).

22 oz bottle at Monkís Cafe in Philadelphia. Pour was a nice amber color with a light colored head. Smell is very hoppy and citrusy grapefruit, very nice. Flavor was much the same of hoppy grapefruit with a lot of a sweet malt backbone to balance out the hops. Overall this was a pretty balaced DIPA and I liked it.

Bomber via trade with bgburdman9. Thanks Brian. Shared with my buddy Kensy after seeing the Arcade Fire, damn they can really put on one hell of a show. Anyway onto the beer, had to try this as it was a big recommendation from Bartzilla a hop head indeed. Pours Amber with a thin tan head. Dry hoppyness on the nose, not in your face. The taste is sharp and potent with a big round hoppy feel in the mouth with just the right amount of bitterness. Woody pine comes through as well as very light citrus hints. This is really a damn good beer in a nice looking bottle. Cheers to Southern Tier.

22oz- Nice color, nice lace on pour. Hops on nose. Plate fades from light malt to heavy perfumy flavor (perhaps the wheat) to grapefruit. A different take on pale ale, but not for me.

Very full taste, piney. Lots of hops and rebirths of flavor all the way through. Tad bit bitter.

stegosaurus (1882) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 20, 2007
Bottle sampled. Pours slight hazy orange/amber with a large off-white head. Aroma of citrusy pine hops and caramel malts. The flavor is slightly sweet upfront, caramel, citrus, pines and finishes bitter and dry.

On tap at the Bocktown. Fruity berry aroma with a little floral hops. For some reason while looking at the tap, I was expecting an impy stout, oh well. Instead I am presented with a double IPA. It has the ubiquitous colors of any other IIPA, a clear darker yellow color. Hops, hops and more hops greet the taste buds. This is followed by a berry or fruit background just like the aroma suggests. This stuff really mows over my girlie taste buds. Although this style is not up my alley, I must say it is what I would expect from a major IPA. This is the kind of bitter hoppiness almost makes my gag reflexes kick in! Donít care for that, I always thought beer was to be enjoyed. However, I respect the fact that many of us ratebeerians love this attribute. This beer is quite puckering. Finish is lasting and bitter linger. Acrid back of the throat conditions. Please, somebody give me a Weyerbacher Old Heathen for a chaser! Iíll probably be slammed for this rating but I am not experienced enough yet to rate within a style.

bottle: pours a cloudy orange blossom honey colour with an off white head. the aroma is of citrus hops with a nice balance of sweet malts. also some added spice and earthyness. the flavour is starts sweet and is smooth and thick over the palate with a great bitter hop finish. a great balanced big beer.

Grandpa (327) - Verona, New York, USA - APR 18, 2007
A lightly cloudy amber with an off-white head. The strong malt flavor came through with an initial sweetness Then the hops came on. The result was a well balanced "Extreme" beer. Boy, was that good!

RiverHorse (457) - New Jersey, USA - APR 15, 2007
UPDATED: DEC 30, 2007 Pours a beautiful golden color with a nice creamy, bubbly head. The smell is extremely hoppy with a nice citrus bite and some great spiciness. A nice lacing sticks to the side of the snifter. The taste has a warming alcohol feel with a hoppy bite and excellent mouthfeel. This beer is a world class IIPA. One of my top ten.
