Thanks to Pawola22 for sending me this bottle. The beer pours an orange-amber color with a white head. The aroma is full of pine and orange notes, with a little bit of resin and some biscuit malt. The flavor is similar, being dominated by pine and resin notes from the hops. There is also some biscuit and toffee, as well as a medium amount of bitterness. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

My first Steel Toe beer, and it drank pretty good. Clearly a double ipa, with sweet malt and lots of hops, and a somewhat thick palate. Citrus hop character, and sweet malt. It might be hard to drink a 750ml of this, but it is a good beer.

timfoolery (1124) - California, USA - APR 14, 2012
Bottle from trade with Atom as an extra. Aroma was the best part of this beer with nice tropical notes and some citrus. Flavor starts with these, but they die off and bitter rather quickly. Nice bit of carbonation, but the palate ends up being mild bitterness on the tongue. Pretty good drinking DIPA. Nice beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nice looking beer. A little darker reddish color that I wasnít expecting. Alcohol sticks to the glass. Taste is really hop heavy and I can detect that melon flavor others have talked about. I can also taste the alcohol. Nice beer, good aroma, a little floral and sticky.

Big thanks to dougofthefuture for sending a bottle of this out my way. Served in a SAVOR wine glass. Pours a moderate orange-caramel color with a good white head and some ringy lacing on the way down. The nose carries plenty of tropical-fruit notes on top of some semi-sweet malt. The flavor has those same tropical notes, but the malt sweetness comes through a bit more and overwhelms some of the hop notes. In a beer this big I donít mind some malt, but there was a bit too much, and the sweetness to bitterness ratio was a bit too much in favor of the former.

Pours light amber with a tin white head. Aroma is orange zest, citrus hops, pine. Flavor is piney hops, lots of orange peel and grapefruit. Light bodied and medium carbonation.

The hops intensity is not what expected for a double ipa. Tastes creamy. The stron hop smell is misleading with the taste. Appearance is good

Bottle from mattyb83, mtjoseph and atom. Pours a deep amber with very little head. The aroma is malty with some tropical fruit notes. Taste has some tropical fruit, not mango, and a fair amount of malt. Warming up to room temp it actually got really good. The sweetness is a little much and the booze comes through but a nice offering. Overall, I donít know that I would go out of my way for this but it was nice though I wish the ABV was toned down a bit.
