4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.

1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
Extremely disappointing... no flavor, some bitterness, no body, akin to a light beer... in a word awful. I enjoyed the pale ale from Stone.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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

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."

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.

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.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.

UPDATED: JAN 26, 2009 22oz bomber. A bright orange color with a white foamy head. Aroma is floral and citrus. Flavor is grassy and hops with a big bitter end. Overall good beer and I will buy more.

A: Golden yellow with a thin white head that dissipates quickly.
