3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: DEC 3, 2009 Poured an amber body with a white head that faded to decent lacing. Aroma is, as expected, very hoppy with maybe a hint of cinnamon or citrus in the background. Taste is very hoppy. Starts off with a mild sweetness and zing from the carbonation that gives way to the full blown hops. Lingering bitterness that is slightly drying but wonderful. Palate is very silky and the carbonation gives a nice zing. Overall a very good beer if you like the hops.

This is perfection for the hophead. Pours a magnificent deep off-orange amber with a tight, slighly off white head. STRONG grapefruit on the nose dominates the instant the bottle is opened even before being poured. The taste certainly does not disappoint. Powerful grapefruit/ citrus dominates with a certain resin, pine beneath the surface. Sharp and biting on the palate. This is exactly what was promised. Not a giant malty/ hoppy Imperial, but a true ode to the hop. At an enamel melting 100+ IBUís, this bad boy is right in my wheelhouse.

Bottle, really aggressive hop aroma from the glass, citrus, pine, orange peel. Surprisingly balances out with the body to give a great dipa.

At a tasting from a bottle. Joey Jordanoff and I concur, solid aroma backed up by a nice balance of hops and malts. A little resin on the palate but not overwhelming. Solid drop.

What a wonderful aroma this beer has; a very complimentary pairing of malt and hops. Golden amber in color with a bit of a haze. A very smooth mouth feel. Well balanced flavor. The hops are appearent immediately then the malt and alcohol shine through followed by a second wave of hops. Wow! This is truly a great beer!

This is a true heavyweight contender for champion of the IPAís. Really smacks you right in the mouth. A right hook of hops, and a straight jab of bitter palate ruining goodness. Truly a liquid poem that contains a roller coaster of emotion with every drink. Step into the ring if you dare.

Even for an American IPA this beer has a lot of hoppy bitterness and itís sweet malt backbone can hold up to it. It has a very hoppy aroma with hints of citrus. Flavor has hints of honey, lemon rind and orange. Itís a tad cloudy, it had almost no lacing and the head was a little weak, which were really the only drawbacks.

Strange to be challenged with a taste that first impression I did not like only to be won over by its intensity and uniqueness. Pungent. Complex. Surprising. Pushing my envelope from bitterness standpoint but still judge as a buy again favorite
