Delicately pour a taste into a fluted glass. Smell the enchanting aromas of the hops come forward as your first sip divulges this beer’s fervent soul.

3fourths (8637) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 17, 2006
22oz bottle. Dark rusty orange color, medium sized to thin head present. Hugely sharp taste of tinny, brash hops and raw cereal grains. Tinny honey and spoiled (old) hops. This is not what a IIPA is supposed to be about... there’s no juiciness, no fresh hop resin, just a somewhat nasty metallic brash malt flavor that consumes this entire beer.

GTown (127) - New York, USA - SEP 7, 2006
Draught. Pours golden amber with small head. Strong pine hops aroma. Coats the tongue as you drink; perhaps helping to mask the high abv. Southern Tier goes toe to toe with the best West Coast IPAs with this one.

JFURYCAT (1079) - East Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 4, 2006
Bomber from Sam the Beer Man in Binghamton, NY. This seems like a very organic explosion of flavors which are very complex yet excellently welded together in a medium dry finish. I detect an excursion towards grassy tones making me think this was Earthly despite its ferocious hop nature. The 11% alcohol is appropriate given the assertiveness of flavors within this beer. It made my sister want to cry because of its aggressive hop nature and my wife thought the same!

WISEGUY572 (1375) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 2, 2006
Clear rich golden amber, almost no head, good lacing. Good, big, round mouthfeel. Sweet malts, thoroughly overpowered by orange and pine hops with a bitter finish ... not necessarily bad, or as I said of Hop Devil, "we don’t need no stinkin’ balance!" Far more alcohol than I prefer in a beer ... this is a pizza and beer and pass out sort of beer if you are not careful, but well hidden ... only the faintest hint of barleywine excess alcohol in the taste. I really like IPAs, and if the alcohol were both lower and less obvious this would be a fantastic beer instead of merely a very enjoyable one! Although the more of this glass I drink, the more I realize that a little more balance on the hoppiness wouldn’t hurt either!

Lubiere (11232) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 27, 2006
Golden amber IPA with a thin light moka head. Very fresh hops, indeed unearthly, like sticking a hadfull of hops in your nose, with light caramel malt and light alcohol. Doughy malt in mouth with loads of varieties of hops, resinous, citrusy and herbal. A sweet malt balances well the whole beer, with a smooth alcohol finish. Bottle 7.99 at Party Source, Syracuse NY.

CapFlu (4817) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 26, 2006
(650ml bottle) Pours an almond-coloured head with a deep orange body. Nose is incredibly fresh with hops: milky, vanilla and the greenest of hops. Flavour is tart with a hoppy side-carriage. Bitch-slapping pine-soiled-my-shorts good! Thanks Luc.

thebaldwizard (1205) - Ohio, USA - AUG 23, 2006
This one is top notch! The pour is a nice orange color with a great head. The hop aroma is divine! Great citrus hop smell and malt presence. The taste follows the aroma right on with an onlsaught of citrus hop flavor backed up by a great big chewy malt profile. Really impressed with this offering from a really good brewer.

Nejhleader (1346) - Lemoyne, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 23, 2006
was surprised to see the 11% alchohol level, hidden well, doesn’t have your standard IPA taste. i wasn’t too impressed.

sersdf (1018) - chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 21, 2006
super malty everywhere. looked like any old double ipa. hops weren’t particularly strong, but they were there. like i said, malty and chewy. i liked it. had no idea the alcohol was so big considering how hidden it was.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - AUG 19, 2006
Bottle: Amber color, light sticky head, nice lacing. Nose is full and bright with citrus, grapefruit, pine and resin. Fresh malts too! The flavor is balanced, nice full sweetness and alcohol lashes leaches out the hoppy bitterness and dry hops. 153 IBUS? Whatever. Nice hoppy strong ale without much caramelization of dark malts to ruin the party. Warming. Nice.
