JCapriotti (1379) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 5, 2006
Nice appearance... coppery orange color, frothy off-white head. Aroma has fruity hops with a bit of caramel. Hops are very fruity... citrusy with some sweet tropical stuff too. Flavor gets into those details a bit more. On the surface this seems like a well-done, but typical IIPA. However, some of the details are a bit fun, like the fruity nature of the hops. Instead of citrus, pine, and caramel for sweetness, this is more citrus... leads into tropical fruity sweetness... leads into moderately sweet caramel malt. Good stuff.

hopscotch (9161) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUN 5, 2006
UPDATED: JAN 6, 2008 Bottle... This beer rocks!... Clear, orange ale with a large, frothy, beige head. Good retention. Tons of stuff going on in the aroma; tropical and citrus fruit... Hawiian Punch. Toffee, caramel and black tea. 153 IBUs, but enough malt to balance it out. Tea grapefruit and caramel in the flavor as well. Full-bodied and fatty with medium carbonation. Finishes malty, then dry with a pinch of salt. World class! Thanks go out to growler for sharing this bottle!

BuckNaked (1230) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JUN 3, 2006
22oz bottle: pours to a clear amber body with a medium eggshell head. The aroma is fresh hops, grapefruit, citrus, apricot, citrus, light malt. Taste is grapefruit, citrus, grapefruit rind, bitter apricot, pine, pineapple, mild grains, and some light pale malts. Medium bodied, medium carbonated, hides the 11% very well.

argo0 (11535) - Washington DC, USA - JUN 3, 2006
(22oz bottle) Clear amber body topped by a small beige head. Aroma is moderately sweet, pine, floral/orange, caramel. Taste is moderately sweet, grapefruit, candi sugar, some caramel, light orange. Alcohol dry finish. Medium-full body, chewy. Not bad, but lacks distinguishing features.

Pailhead (4812) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - JUN 3, 2006
Bottle: Courtesy of Styles. Aroma is sweet citrus with light apricot and grapefruit hoppiness. Pours a bright transparent orangish-amber with a small off-white head. Lots of sweet citrus up front with light apricot and hints of pineapple. Big grapefruit hoppy finish that really lingers in the aftertaste. 11% is hidden extremely well. A well done and well balanced IIPA.

aracauna (3084) - Georgia, USA - MAY 31, 2006
Pours a clear, pale mahogany. This thing has a great hoppy aroma with pineapple and pine trees. Itís got a slight bit of caramel malt to back up the hoppiness.

Thaichile (599) - 10aFly, New Jersey, USA - MAY 30, 2006
Bottle. 22 oz. Pours an orange/gold color with a small head. Big time hops on the nose. Hops dominate on the palate, but not enough malt to provide the balance that I look for in a 2IPA. I thought this was a hopped up IPA, fruity, hop tingle, and bitter.

beastiefan2k (2430) - Emerald City (formely NYC & KS), Washington, USA - MAY 29, 2006
Bomber poured into Westmalle Goblet. Pours copper, very translucent but cannot see through the beer. Aroma is all hops, pine and soapy grapefruit. Taste is strong, all hoppy. Similar taste, with lots of piney biterness at the end. An aftertaste of tea. Good hiding of the alcohol.

pineypower (2509) - Pine Barrens, New Jersey, USA - MAY 29, 2006
Holy hops. Huge hop aroma on the pour with a nice orange color. Decent sized head. Taste is good with notes of citrus and some floral hops, malt back bone was there, but I found myself wanting a bit more, None the less a very solid brew

ABUSEDGOAT (2390) - California, USA - MAY 28, 2006
After the 12% ABV mess that was Java I was really scared to try an 11% ABV IIPA. Anyway...clear amber body with a moderate head, average lacing. Aroma is a blast of hops.. go figure. Got the usual stuff like grapefruit and citrus as well as some other fruits, but also vanilla. Slighty soapy taste that I canít quite target. After looking at the ingrediants on the bottle Iím guessing red wheat but I have no idea... whatever it is... I donít like it. I think the problem on top of that is that without that flavor, this would be a fairly bland (bland still scores well for IIPAs) example and also a bit too sweet. I dunno, I was hoping for something more bitter when I saw 153 IBUs.
