Very good smell and a very powerful double IPA! Nice hoppy taste making for a good IPA flavor. Great IPA!

Terminus (3229) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - JUL 24, 2006
22oz bottle-deep orange with a small fizzy white head around the rim of the glass. nose of dirty, musty, resinous hops-quite earthy and dirty with lots of caramel malt. quite a bit of resitual sweeness as well. I think this bottle maybe oxidized-it was barely filled to the neck of the bottle. flavors are dirty and somewhat aged malt profile with a ton of sweetness. malt profile comes off as being an overly sweet bigfoot clone without the piney hops to balance it out. lots of sweet alcohol kick here. very unbalanced. pretty much a train wreck for a IIPA. I cant stand Chinook hops for bittering other than in Bigfoot. Its a dirty, nasty hop that should only be used in small amounts.

CamdenD (1070) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUL 23, 2006
This is a powerful IIPA. HUGE floral nose with hops abounding everywhere. Taste is quite nice, not too sweet and not too bitter, well balanced. Big time IIPA and big time good.

Drew (2411) - Kent, Ohio, USA - JUL 18, 2006
Clear bodied, orange/amber, short white head with moderate lacing. Aroma is piney but also some sweet malt. I enjoyed the grapefruit juicy hoppiness with the slightly caramel malts. Finish is long and bitter. Very easy to drink - didn’t notice the 11% at all.

DrBayern (1139) - Morehead City, North Carolina, USA - JUL 16, 2006
Medium white head collapses quickly into a coppery amber pour. Medium mouthfeel, resinous but not sticky, with light carbonation. Nice malty flavors af molasses and a little burnt caramel becoming nicley balanced by pine and grapefruit. A bitter, somewhat astringent finishthat produces a lasting dryness in the mouth. Very enjoyable.

illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 15, 2006
UPDATED: JUL 17, 2006 Bottle purchase at Premier Gourmet in buffalo, NY. Pours amber red with a creamy white head. Grapefruit hop and boozy aroma. Flavor of honey, brown sugar, iced tead nicely balanced by a pleasant hop bitterness. Finishes slightly warm and peppery, with minimal amount of resiny or sticky finish. Some british malt characteristics are hiding back there. For 11%, this is easy to drink. Well done. There is a lot of good information on the bottle, but whomever screened these used crappy ink that does not adhere. You can scratch if off, therefore some of it is hard to read.

Bottle. Clear amber/red/copper color with a white head that doesn’t last very long. Great aroma - smooth and hoppy with lots of citrus and floral notes and a bit of malty sugar smell. Flavor doesn’t do justice to the aroma, in my opinion. While very nice it doesn’t convey any of the citrus and floral notes. Very smooth though, with very well balance bitterness (with a great aftertaste). Mouthfeel is fresh and nicely carbonated. A nice beer.

DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 13, 2006
Malty aroma, with a great amount hops, copper, a slim head. Full hops taste at first, with a fine malty backbone. Very well balanced, too easily drinking for such a big boy. Wonderful! Thanks for sharing tupalev!

SuIIy (1983) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - JUL 6, 2006
10.5oz draught sample at Red Bones. Pours a dark copper/amber/red color with a couple fizzy bubbles on top. Nose is hoppy, but mostly sugary and syrupy. Palate is syrupy and sweet. Flavor is sugary sweet and syrupy with a light hop note.

JoeMcPhee (8314) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 5, 2006
Tap at Spuyten Duyvil. Crystal clear amber beer, thich tan head. Aroma is juicy tropical hops, peach, apricot, mango, melon, along with the requisite grapefruit and orange. Amazing hop aroma. Light maltiness in back, but the hops are the star. Flavour is equally tropical and the sweet maltiness accents the hop character nicely. Well-balanced, easy to put back. Feels nothing like 11% ABV.
