22 oz. Orange, pale color with a light head. I got a bit of a floral aroma under the hops. When they say this ruins your palete, they were right. Too much for my inexperience, I can't say I liked the finish. Other than that, a good beer. Hoppy and strong. The destruction of the palete is really all I didn't like.

Bottle poured an amber hue with a nice thick 2 inch lace. Nose is intense floral citrus with a hint of alcohol. I really enjoyed the flavor profile of this one it still had a somewhat dry hop finish even at 7.7% a.b.v. The only thing missing was a nice malt balance. The palate of this one is drinkable if you like Double I.P.A.’s Overall I think I would have another.

Very generously hopped brew. 22oz bomber from Mad Mex. It literally does what the bottle says it will do, ruin your palate from any other flavors. Not too sweet. Great blend of grapefruit and pine flavors. Excellent beer.

Hazy orange/golden color, not totally clear, big creamy white head. Not getting a huge smell out of it, but what i can pick up is citrusy hops, some grass notes, a bit floral. Overall fresh. Awesome taste. The malt flavors really shine through the big hop curtain, which are still fresh tasting, citrusy and floral. High bitterness. Very good

This is by far one of my favorites in the DIPA/hop monster catagory. I wonderful citrusy hop aroma, with an outstanding head. A nice amber rusty color.This is one of the best balanced of the beers in it’s catagory. It has a massive hop profile that it is balanced quite well with a nice maltyness to it.

If someone could find a way to bottle awesome, this would be it. This has perfect bitterness to it. It also has a very complex hoppy taste and nice dry maltiness. Much better than the girly fruit beers I tried before it.

UPDATED: SEP 17, 2008 22 oz bottle. As soon as I opened the bottle the aroma immediately hit my nose. Aroma of pine/citrus. Bitter all the way through. But not so much as to be a turnoff. Aftertaste is a little bready/malty. Very tasty. What I expect out of an Imperial IPA.

1 pt 6 oz bottle. I opened the bottle and - wow! - talk about a hoppy floral aroma. Poured a nice hazy golden color with a white head. Good lacing, small carbonation action. The taste was overpowering with hops and bitterness - quite nice. Very, very good beer.

4.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Aroma hit with a flowery / fruit smell. For an IPA it has an unexpected creaminess, with a balanced hoppy flavor. My wife avers, "One of the best beers I have ever tasted. I like it."
