3.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
I like a good hoppy IPA and this one smelled like it would be one of those. It had good hop flavor but seemed to wash the hops away when I was done with my sip. And at 9.5% ABV it can go down quick and sneak up on you!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From bomber to tulip glass. Aroma is dominated by malt, with both a tropical hop aspect and alcohol noticeable in the background. Pours a clear orange, copper with a moderate large white head that lingers with various sized bubbles. Taste is a little cloying and slight alcohol heat. This is much more malt forward than hop forward. Piney hops start to show well as it warmed, but the hops are one dimensional. Bitter finish.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught at the Speakeasy, San Francisco, CA.
Hazy golden colour with a small white head.
Strong tangerine and fruity hops in the aroma.
The flavour is sweet fruity hops, peach, mild grapefruit and moderate bitterness. Balanced and tasty.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
22 oz bomber served in a tulip glass. Pours dark orange golden with thick white head. Aroma is faintly sweet caramel malt and big earthy hops with a slight citrusy sweetness on the back. Taste is big medium caramel malt and dank piney bitter hops. Lingers substantially bitter on the finish. Lacks the nuance and balance of the better west coast DIPAs, this is still an old favorite and delivers plenty of flavor.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: MAR 14, 2015 Draft at Moriartys. Very hazy orange amber pour. Started with a good amount of pillowy white foam. Some lace. Tons of orange pith, pips and zest. Much more bitter than sweet. ABV is not hidden (and feels higher than 8.5%). Medium blonde malts and faint in the background. Ultimately feels like highly alcoholic Mimosa. Certainly fuller and fruitier than most Imperial/Double IPAs - but not particularly complex.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
It’s got an amazing smoothness and a kickass bottle. It’s pretty bitter, but it isn’t a knock you out of your shoes type of smack bitter, it’s more of a well-balanced bitter that i can’t stop drinking. This is a great beer.

On tap. Hazy golden color with one finger head. Grapefruit and pine aroma. More earthy and pine taste, but a solid IPA.

Pretty good stuff. Lots of sweet maltiness right when you take a sip which turns into a nice hoppy, fresh grapefruit taste. Lots of citrus. I got some awesome tropical notes as it warmed up which was cool. It like almost became a totally new beer. Really good stuff.
