355mL thanks to blutt59. Pours a clear orange orange with a large, off-white head. Rings of sticky lace. Nose is sticky booze, red fruits, sweet nectarine. Taste up front is richer, syrupy, and sharp boozy. Ends with pretty soft balance. Not bad at all but sugary and pretty boozy. Not really bitter at all.

esjaygee (3903) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 9, 2011
Slightly hazed amber with a thick rocky taupe topper that leaves thick lacing. Aroma of deep floral hops, pale and bready malt, some toasted malt, biscuit and grains. Taste is more in the citrus and resinous ballpark with dough, middle of the road sweet malt, grapefruit, floral hops, and a touch of tropical fruit and alcohol. High bitterness that lasts for awhile.

5000 (6299) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - OCT 6, 2011
Bottle:   Orangish straw, a bit cloudy, large frothy off-white head, nice lacing.   Soft citrusy nose, a little resin and orange peel zest.   Malty tongue, caramel notes.   Soft bitterness follows.   Not a hop bomb by any means, and in fact a nice malty example of a big IPA.   The 9% ABV is well hidden.   Feels a little musty, not too bright or fresh.   Clean finish, but its a bit musty.   Certainly a malty example of an IIPA, which I enjoy, but its not too bright or fresh.   Thanks to pailhead for the bottle!

Bottle.Pours amber with an off white head. Nice floral and fruity aroma. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Caramel and honey malt flavors, with a the grapefruit, pine, and lemon hoppiness. Dry, bitter, and earthy finish. Alcohol well hidden. Not bad. I would not seek out again, but would certainly drink it again if offered.
