3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap Firkin Fest 09. Pours a deep orange color, slight sediment, thick foamy head. Flavor is lovely citrusy thick hops and a slightly sugary malt backbone. Notes of citrus fruit, citrus zest, candy sugars, crystal malt. Slightly gritty, I imagine due to the barrel conditioning. Finishes dry and earthy.

Till skillnad från de mesta US-ipor vi ser i Sverige så är humlen lite piggare och malten håller sig lite mer i bakgrunden. Härligt. Inte så tung som väntat. Grapefruktdrag

Thanks to savvy1982 for the share! Pours very pale orange. The aroma is sweet, citric, and reminds me of earl gray tea. The flavor has honey, lemon , grapefruit, candy, tea, and a long bitter finish. Not bad for an IIPA in a can.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Can dated 12/29/11 pours intoa pint glass a hazy orange color with a thin white head. Aromas are immediately noted and consist of floral and citrus both lemon and grapefruit. Taste is big bitter, a hint of some light caramel, then grapefruit and floral notes. Medium body and very drinkable with a long astringent finish. Overall, this is a tremendous DIPA that should not be missed.

4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: JUL 20, 2012 Poured from a can into a pint. Color was amber/copperish. Probably a ¾-inch head with lots of good looking film that lasted throughout.
Powerful smell. Heavy on the hops. Seems to be some kind of citrus in there, maybe grapefruit? Pineapple? So good to the nose.
Strong alcohol taste, but not as much as I thought. Impressively smooth. Lots of flavors coming together from caramel/chocolate to either that slight citrus flavor. The smoothness trumps all.
Mid-to-high carbonation. I can’t mention smooth enough.
Just a terrific beer. If you see it somewhere, pounce on it.

Pours a cloudy peach color with a fairly large frothy white head. Aroma is loads of fresh tropical fruit - mango, grapefruit, peach, lychee - along with newly mown grass, honey and resin. Taste is equally tropical with grapefruit, mango, peach, apricot. Also some grass, resin, caramel and honey. Aftertaste finds grapefruit, honey, resin and hop bitterness. So very good!!
