ElDuderino (183) - Hyde Park, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 23, 2006
Golden Orangish Amber body with a fluffy off-white head. Tame, dry taste with a mellow hop bitterness. Very smooth on the palate and even keeled. Not much going on as far as stand out flavors. Taste fades quickly, but oh so easy to drink. Alcohol is completely masked, watch out, danger may be ahead.

nimbleprop (4984) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - OCT 21, 2006
Poured a clear orangy copper from the bomber with a very thick, white lacing head. A nice earthy, no pun intended, hoppy smell, slightly piney. Sticky, syrupy and slightly acidic in the mouth. Can’t taste anything but the hops here, citrus, pine, flower, soap. The very heavy alcohol is well hidden making this beer enjoyable.

adrian910ss (2361) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 19, 2006
22 oz bomber. Pours an orange amber color with an enormous creamy beige head. Aroma is extremely hoppy with that famous west coast piney IPA scent. Taste is very hoppy with loads and loads of pine flavor and plenty of tangerine citrus as well. Alcohol is hidden very well. Hard to believe this is 11 %. Excellent !! One of the best east coast Imperial IPA’S out there.

Prostman (1077) - Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 19, 2006
This was a good Imperial IPA but almost went overboard. The flavors were very very intense and if you are not a hophead, this is not your beer.

thehinge (268) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - OCT 18, 2006
This is one of the best IIPA’s I’ve had. Not that there’s a lot to hate about any of the style. Southern Tier hit it on the nose with this one. Aroma has sweet and piney elements to it. Orange-amber poor with an almost non-existent head. Should someone care about this? I don’t think so. It coats the palate very well with it’s caramel and citrus flavors. Well balanced hops throughout it. Excellent.

ukoolaid (576) - Amherst, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 17, 2006
On Tap @ Red Bones. Pours a clear amber/orange with foamy off-white head. Aroma is semi-sweet floral hops. Taste is very balanced. Sweet citrus and candy sugar with piney hops. This is 11%?? Wow, the alcohol is hidden very well.

Cliff (399) - The Land of Milk and Honey, Ohio, USA - OCT 11, 2006
a very big hop explosion. hops at the begining, hops at the finish, hops in the middle. clear copper color, with a resiny, almost too resiny mouthfeel. nicely balanced with a big malt backbone. huge hop finish, for the hophead in all of us.

hophead75 (2008) - Largo, Florida, USA - OCT 8, 2006
sampled from bomber. Pours a nice deep amber with a medium off white head. Aroma is a huge amount of fresh citrus and piney hops, resinous aroma with a decent amount of caramel malt also. Taste is sweet caramel, huge citrus up front, with a slight bitterness that lasts throughout the sweet, malty middle and finish. Hops lightly linger on the palate. For a beer this size, extremely well balanced with hops. Light alcohol warm in the finish. damn, this is good.

Rastacouere (6134) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 1, 2006
Deep amber, quickly diminishing off-white cover. Loses lots of points for its rather mediocre palate, both syrupy and slick, yet hugely loose and lacking any tightness or finesse that brings the flavours together. It just throws its residual sugars left and right while offering barely any carbonation to clean the bittering hops onslaught. So…very bitter, very sweet and quite aggressive globally. You know from those sticky malts that they are aiming for some sense of balance here, but it misses the meeting as far as I’m concerned. Its huge ABV manages to be concealed rather genuinely, but the heat still strikes the gong through bare unadulterated medicinal sugars which are, if anything, aggressed by a wide range of hop aromas, ranging from the piney, green, flowery hops to the really resinous and oily sticky gumminess.
