sloth (2642) - 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 (2142) - 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 (3489) - 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.

BeerandBlues2 (10785) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 24, 2006
Blind rating. Pours copper with a patchy white head and spotty lacing. Aroma is piney, spruce hops, slightly soapy, malt (cookie) and flowers. Cotton candy, heavily bitter and acidic flavor, caramel malt, finish lingers hoppy and tart. Medium bodied, creamy but slightly dry palate.

Ernest (6729) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - APR 23, 2006
100% blind rating. Head is mostly lasting. Body is murky dark brown. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (cookie), moderately to heavily hoppy (resin, grapefruit), lightly yeasty (dough). Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, moderately acidic, moderately to heavily bitter. Medium to full body, watery texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic. Very left coastish, dull for me.

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 15/20
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.

Murphy (1759) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 23, 2006
Copper, white head large bubbles. Aroma is all piney hops, gotta be some Cascade in there. Hop bomb. Taste is a minty, caramel hop. Not overpowering, but very hoppy. I like that there are other flavors in here. Alcohol subdued. Finish is more piney hops, fruitiness creeps in.

3.2
   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 12/20
f351c4v (411) - Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 20, 2006
Pours a dark copper color, with a nice white head. Aroma is well, hoppy as one would expect. Overly sweet and sticky, this beer could have tuned down the sweetness and been a better brew. Hop character was light in comparison to the sweet malt profile. Not a favorite, but not a drain pour, either.

paul9639 (116) - New Hampshire, USA - APR 20, 2006
I have high standards for DIPAs, and I wasn’t really wowed by this one. I wanted more hoppiness and bite, but the ending was sickly sweet. Worth trying, but I probably won’t pick it up again. At least for a while, anyway.
