DYCSoccer17 (3320) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 1, 2006
Single blind tasting with Newport Storm Chloe. Piney, earthy aroma with a definite boozy, ethanol presence. A little bit of sweet caramel maltiness with a bit of citrus orange present as well. Smells a bit medicinal with too much booze. Transparent, filtered copper-colored body with a decent off-white head and fair lacing. Start has a bit of an ethanol burn with some piney and earthy hops in the middle. Some roasted malts are present as well. Finishes with more lingering bitter hoppiness. A bit too boozy without enough of a malt backbone. Decent, but nothing overly special.

Thanks to Shane for bringing me this bottle. The beer pours a light golden with a full white frothy head. Aroma is sweetish with ripe tropical fruits. The hops are actually pretty restrained. Some amarillo/centtenial/columbus fruitiness, but nothing piney and pungent really. The body is med and somewhat sweetish. The flavors are boozy and sweet, too sweet for an IPA. The hops reveal themselves in some heavy fruitiness but that is easily confused with a descent amount of yeasty esters. The finish is anything but dry and the bitterness is really lacking. Alcohol is very apparent and they are using a descent amount of sugar in this which is very evident in the alcohol character and the body. So what makes this a double IPA? Maybe I just drink too much of my own IIPAs?

sloth (2483) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - APR 30, 2006
Small tan head, good retention, lacing is spotty at best. Brilliantly clear amber, copper colored brew. Big nose! Piney, grapefruit, flowery with notes of bubblegum and melons, just smells sticky. Body is med/full, a touch oily on the palate. Ya gotcher hops, piney, citrusy, resiny and a bit raw. Ya gotcher malts, mildly sweet, caramelly, delicate but chewy. Ya gotcher alcohol, warming and adding a sweet fruitiness that tops it all off. Fruity, lightly sweet finish. Kool brew! Thanks shadey!

mkobes (2140) - paramus, New Jersey, USA - APR 28, 2006
Bomber. Deep copper in color with a nice white head. Hoppy fruity, citrusy aroma. Malty spicey hop flavor. Peppery notes. Well balanced beer. Sweet. Finish is dry. Drinkable. Very nice.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - APR 28, 2006
Bomber. Thick head with apricot, spicy hops, pine and grapefruit aromas waft through your nostrils upon first sip. Flavors all meld pretty nicely. Chewy hops are balanced nicely with a sweet malt backbone. I really like that ST has gone to bombers for this and the Jah-va. Nice stuff.

Aubrey (3432) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - APR 27, 2006
Big hop blast up front. Lovely malts, with sweet, candy-like "Astropop" flavors. Combined with the chewy hops, there was a nice sugar-coated pine thing going on. Other hints of caramel, fruit and grass. I enjoyed this one.

luckygirl (1223) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - APR 23, 2006
Beer pours a clear, orange/gold color with an average-sized, off-white, frothy, quickly diminishing and mostly lasting head. The aroma is malty sweet with moderate notes of toasted grain and cookie; hoppy with heavy notes of resin/pine, grapefruit, light notes of apricot; yeasty with light notes of dough. The flavor is heavily bitter, moderately sweet with a longer-than-average, moderately sweet, lightly bitter finish. Nice cedar/redwood retros. The body is medium, the texture is velvety and the carbonation is lively.
