4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
This is a huge IPA. Powerful hop profile with the perfect malt to match. Beautiful beer, reddish amber with a chunky head that dissipates. The hops and sweetness round out with the malt. I could certainly drink too much of this one.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
16 oz can from Andy’s Liquors in Rochester, Minnesota, served in a stem glass. Pours clear orange-amber with a moderate tan head that fades to a thin remnant and leaves a small amount of fine lace. The nose has huge notes of resin, tropical fruit, pine and grapefruit, along with medium toasted malts and hints of toffee and bread. The flavour is Intensely bitter throughout, with a huge resinous happiness that builds towards a long, bitter finish. Notes of citrus peel, tropical fruit and lightly toasted malts come through nicely as well. On the palate, it is medium in body with a smooth, milky texture and soft carbonation. Overall, this is a very nice IPA with an intensely bitter hop profile. Though the aroma is impressive, the brewers have clearly emphasized the early-addition hops on this one. 2014-12-17

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draught at Mikkeller Bar, Stockholm.
Copper, quite clear body, with a medium, creamy, white head.
Aroma of citrus, peach, dark berries, pine, some tropical fruits, tea.
Taste follows this pretty much, with some more caramel malts.
Medium, slick mouthfeel, with a strong carbonation.
Finishes bitter, dry, zesty, piney.
Really tasty! One of those darker IPAs, with interesting dark fruit and tea like notes. Greatly balanced and really quaffable. Not my favourite IPA, but a fantastic one for sure!

On tap at Stone. Clear Amber pour with an off white head. Grapefruit hop aromas. Tasty grapefruit Hoo notes dominate. A sturdy caramel malt backbone gives balance. Good body and mouthfeel.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured from 16oz. can. Pours a deep hazy copper color with a nice thin head. Aroma is Hops and more hops. A nice malt taste, but the Hops come through. Strong finish. A great IPA.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap in Chicago. Clean copper-amber with tan head. Lacing all the way down. Super fresh aroma of warm orange and caramel malts. Pine and grass shine, especially on warning. Medium body. American hops squarely in the driver seat. Big, harsh flavors. Bitter throughout. And yet, despite the intensity, drinkable. Pleasant depth of flavor: malts are bready and citrus discuss open on warming. Toys the line of being a bitter bomb, but never loses the plot. Great beer.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice deep amber with a respectable light cream head. Pleasant citrus and pine aroma. Good malt base without being too sweet, but bitterness overwhelms. Hops are thick and last beyond the finish. Gotta be in a hop mood for this one.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
16oz can pours a pale brown color with a bit of head. Medium hop bitterness that lingers after. The hops are really easy going, with no sharp flavors.
