3.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 9/20
Nice fruity aroma with pine sand hints of citrus. Pours a clear golden amber with a white ring and spotty lacing. The taste, initially, has a sweet fruity quality about it followed by "subdued" pine/resin flavor ending with a satisfying hoppy bitter finish. Medium fbody with medium carbonation. There is almost a tongue coating quality that is not found in most IPA’s. Very pleasing. Overall, this is a very enjoyable IPA which I want to have again.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Double Dry Hopped w/Southern Cross, Pacific Gem, Helga and Mosaic Hops. Pours a superb golden hue with lovely, fluffy white head. Aromas are sweet tropical fruit, then some citrus, pine and just a note of apple or apple skin. Flavors are sweet fruit right off the bat, then some grapefruit, big piney/resin bitterness a touch of bread and simple syrup. The mouthfeel is perfect on this beer as the ratio of weight and sticky-ness is melded wonderfully; the way this coats just a bit and then finishes super dry is awesome. Overall, a big improvement to last years super bitter DDH version of this beer and one I would love to get my hands on more often.

22 oz from Campus West, cool bottle. Pours gold and clear with a fluffy, lasting white head and thick lacing. The aroma is strong, piney, fresh hops, floral, and citrus fruit. Similar flavor with heavy, resinous, oily hop bitterness all the way through. Malts? Nope. Medium body with a dry feel and lingering, bitter, dry, warming finish. Palate = destroyed.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours hazy orange with small head and leaves spotty lacing. The aroma is all hops with pine and citrus notes. The taste is similarly hoppy and finishes with a medium bitterness. It has a great feel with a full body, creamy texture and lively carbonation.

What a palate ruining, hop crazy IPA... Great taste, surprisingly controlled and balanced considering all the hops

Bottle. Punchy citrus aroma that continues into the flavour before rampant bitterness takes over. The bitterness strips the flavour the flavour away on the finish. An interesting beer.

UPDATED: MAY 9, 2013 Perfect color. Perfect nose. Citrus/ pine/ resin. Great hops! Perfect amounts of malt in the background ! .... Hops dominate, malts gently linger. Great! Cant get enough of this one! Excellent!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz. bottle. Can really taste the 100+ IBU in this one. Color is a dark yellow, with only a slight hop aroma. Starts off with a nice citrus-grapefruit hoppyness with a hint of pine or spruce at the end. Can really taste the bitterness between drinks. Good, but not the best.
