Bottle shared with a bunch of folks - courtesy of tupalev. Wow - having this after the Avery Maharaja was quite a one-two punch! Clear, dark ruby-amber colour. Juicy hops on the nose with a bit of smokiness. Flavour is big and bold, lots of citrusy hops, but a strong malt backbone to balance it out. Hides that 11% amazingly well. Fantastic stuff - I gots to get me a few bottles of this for myself.

blankboy (7054) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 15, 2006
Bottle shared with HogTownHarry, GregClow, tupalev, jerc, R. and the rest of the gang -- courtesy of tupalev. Pours a clear copper-orange with an average size diminishing off-white head. Great aroma of resin and citrus hops with just enough malt to balance it out. Delicious big hoppy flavour, again with just enough malt to back it up -- very well balanced. No way this is 11%!? Medium to full bodied. This is a fantastic I2PA -- I’m ecstatic that I have a few bottles of this all for myself!

Enjoyed with friends on my first weekend off in 5 weeks. Pours copper – orange and very clear. Quick to dissipate head and good looking carbonation. Big malty sweet aroma marked by a pine hop presences and a light metallic hint as it warmed. Big malt body on this one that included a chocolate like taste in the finish. All the usual malts you might expect through the body (caramel, etc) with a great hop bill. Very nice mix of citrus and spice, but the chocolate malty finish really makes the bitterness seem like a bitter dark chocolate. Creamy round body. This is like ruination with more malt and more sweetness.

Gorbalev (3000) - Ontario, CANADA - MAY 14, 2006
My bottle shared with a bunch of fine folks. Malty, earthy taste. Oily, resiny, lots of body. Medium orange with a solid white head. Very hoppy, balanced, and extremely drinkable (11%? No way). Best of the tasting for me and one of Southern Tier’s best yet.

UPDATED: JAN 5, 2007 January 2007. Did not take detailed notes on this one, but it was fantastic, all I wrote down was "+1 to 2 aroma, and +1 flavour". Great stuff! <P> May 2006. Bottle. Dark orangey amber body with a moderate beige head. Big resiny hops in the aroma carry over to the flavour, with just a hint of citrus. Pleasant supporting malt. Medium bodied palate (3+). I personally like more citrus in my IPAs but this is quite nice and dangerously quaffable at such a high alcohol content. Very nice. 7/3/8/4/17 - 3.9

HogTownHarry (6372) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - MAY 14, 2006
Bottle (650ml). Shared with blankboy, GregClow, jerc, tupalev, DougShoemaker, R and others - tupalev’s bottle. Bright clear deepish copper with an average head. Some fruity malt sweetness, but mostly hops - resin + citrus - not overwhelming, solid. Taste features the hops even more, rich, almost oily resiny bitter hops, with a very long bitter finish, enough somewhat nutty light roast malt to keep the bitterness somewhat in check. Quite an astringent mouthfeel - made me thirsty! - with a very long finish and I nearly fell out of my chair when I saw 11% ABV - I couldn’t detect much alcohol character at all, scary. Great I2PA, right up there with most of them.

ultraspank (867) - Alverca, Lisboa, PORTUGAL - MAY 13, 2006
Nose of pine, burnt resin, some alcohol, fruit & perfume. Pours a clear copper. The sticky, fluffy, off-white head has average retention & good lace. The flavor is cereal malt entwined with alcohol warmth & hops blast. Tastes intricately knitted. The finish is bready, bittersweet, and acidic. The full body is syrupy, and soft.

footbalm (1219) - Western Minneapolis Suburbs, Minnesota, USA - MAY 11, 2006
Holy shit. This was insane. Like a mango citrus sorbet. The nose was like some fancy dessert at a nice restaurant. Taste wasn’t quiet as good. Kind of syrupy and alcoholic but still there was some nice fruity notes with the citrus hops

TAR (2581) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 8, 2006
Rusty orange. Dying dirty-white foam. Piney and fruity aroma of peach and mango. Fairly alcoholic with soft caramel overtones. Firm, airy carbonation. Viscous body. Hops immediately unleash their gooey teeth-clinging resins coupled with a poignantly bitter pine-laced sting which momentarily deadens any acidity that might hinder the body. Alcohol and airiness manage to lift the heavy oils from the palate while the scarcest touch of malt lies buried beneath the unrelenting hop assault. Prevalent sappiness stops just shy of becoming overbearingly sweet, as there’s just enough complimentary brightness to keep it at bay. Extremely oily hop character comes off as being overly raw and pungent, but the softer floral elements distract you from the approaching uncleanliness. The body and brightness are drastically affected as it takes on a disagreeable combination of mushy grapefruit and leafy acidity late in the swallow. Delayed spicy flourish of alcohol and hops also imparts more dirtiness. Finishes deceptively bitter due to how sappy it is, and quite hot with a fuzzily defined blend of peaches bathed in honey. Overall, the carbonation is too hard and the hop flavors become muddled and monotonous halfway through the bottle. Little more than another run-of-the-mill DIPA. Thanks ElJefe.
