Bottle via Odeed. The beer pours to a transluscent gold body with visible carbonation and a very thick frothy/rocky/creamy white head. Nice lacing. The aroma is piney and grapefruity. Hoppy. The flavor is piney, bitter spruce, and caramel malts. Lingering bitter hoppiness. Tastes like sap/resin, but the palate is clean from the oily resins I would expect. Too piney/sprucey. Bitter. Medium bodied. Finishes clean. 9.5% is not detectable. Unfortunately pretty basic for a double IPA.

Nice aroma, strong flowery, pine, citrus. Pours amber, flavor is pretty bitter, then some citrus, then alcoholic finish. Nice full body.

TBone (16159) - Pori, FINLAND - JUL 2, 2006
Bottled. Dark honey brown, good creamy head. Bready-malty, hoppy aroma. Bready malty and very hoppy flavor, of course, but not hoppy to extreme. This hides its ABV quite well. Quite balanced and even enjoyable double IPA.

thanks to zeswaft for sharing. had this at somewhat of a ítastingí of ipaís. this one i recall as mighty alcoholic all around. the hops seemed pretty muted in flavor, and it was a bit difficult to pick up the aroma.

Zeswaft (1659) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 28, 2006
Whoa, this was kind of disappointing. Very little aroma and lots of alcohol in the flavor. Some citrus hops but more than necessary alcohol. their regular IPA is better. pass on this.

sliffy (2040) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 27, 2006
Bottle thanks to tever: Clear copper color with a small white head. Aroma had some pale/carmel malts, floral and citrus hop notes. I thought I noticed a little oxidation though. Not sure how old the bottle was. Flavor, quite sweet for an IIPA, some subdued hops, a little lingering bitterness, but nothing special.

jason (1834) - Easton, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 26, 2006
UPDATED: JUN 13, 2016 2005 Bottle.Great smell. Very pleasant with lot?s of hops sensation. A good crisp taste that is very californian(not that it?s bad but meaning this is their style.). Leaves a good taste on the mouth. Can not taste the 9.5 %, in fact if I wouldn?t have known I would have thought that this was just a typical IPA.

No head, little lacing. Molasses nose rife with dried fruit. Malt flavor would be downright cocoa/mocha if it werenít for the hop bitterness that mellows it out. There is some kind of burnt flavor in there too. Nose is grassy but less malty than the flavor reflects. Crystal clear copper liquid in the glass as far as appearance goes. Not much in the way of bubbles. Finish is dried fruit and a little astringent from the hops I guess. A very malty IIPA. As a resident of SoCal, this is very different from SoCal IIPAs that I am used to. More like an East Coast interpretation of a San Diego IIPA. Not that SD has the market cornered or anything, but this is not what I usually expect from a CA born-and-bred IIPA.

Whoís your daddy? Double Daddy, thatís who. And donít cross him or youíll be stumbling around like you got smacked upside the head with a mummified deer leg. Thick, rich, hop explosion with a shivering malt backbone. This is the kind of beer that I could drink all night... at least until I shot off my mouth and some dude puts me down for the count. Which is likely to happen if I had the opportunity to drink this all night. Iím almost glad I donít have that chance. Well, at that price and itís limited appearances down here in San Diego, I think Iím safe. For now.
