2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
On-tap at the Hunaphu release... Pours a murky dark gold. The head off white rises a couple fingers, gone quickly, ok lace... The aroma is caramel malt with citrus, alcohol, and some hops on the finish. Ok... The taste is a little too strong with too much alcohol and just a little blah, not very flavorful. Alcohol with generic hops.
Not a big fan of this, nothing new.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On draft at the Hunahpu release. Pours an orange-yellow with a white head. Nose is a citrus burst with lots of orange, grapefruit, apricot, peach, and malt. Flavor is similar with well-hidden alcohol and lots of citrus. Medium-bodied and nice outside drinking beer. Dangerously drinkable at 10% ABV.

Had this on tap at Hunahpu Day 2011. Pours an interesting tan lacing, very malty, when I have a double IPA I want the enamel ripped off my teeth. Ahhh... alright

So much flavor. Excellent balance of hoppy bitterness and sweet malt. Tastes almost chocolaty, but very complex.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark orange and very little head. Floral, earthy, cooked vegetables. Though this IPA is balanced at first, it is dry and astringent later. Loads of flavour but not delcate in any way. Pretty good if you’re into it. (On tab in Stubbies)

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at Redlight Redlight. Pours a dark, lightly hazy, golden-amber hue with a small, swirly, off-white head. Trace spots of lacing are scattered about the glass. The nose is far too saccharine for a double IPA, loaded with sweet caramel, dessert bread, and sugared, slightly stale cereal grain malts that collectively outpace a weak, muddled, floral and citrus hop contingent. Notes of orange rind and grass peek out here and there, but just can’t overcome the malt avalanche. Flavors follow suit, showing far too sweet and malty, laden with hefty caramel, biscuit, and cookie malts. Grassy-citrus hop bitterness seems old and tattered, tired from fighting the intense sugars. Somehow, despite the massive malt billing, this stuff manages a relatively weak palate, showing considerably more watery than one would expect. Carbonation is on the light side, lending a bit of a lifeless feel. Alcohol burns on the finish. This one isn’t impressive in the least bit.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A clear golden amber IPA with a thin white head. Another meaty and floral hops aroma, with some nice muskey notes, almost sexual. In mouth, an intense malt with nicely balanced floral hops, oily resins, quite nice and classic, warming alcohol, just right. On tap at Cigar City, May 22 2010.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draft... Mildly hazed, light amber ale with a mid-sized, creamy – yet fat-bubbled – white head. Fantastic retention. The aromatics are heavy with peppery hops, grapefruit, peach, pine and resin. Full-bodied and creamy with moderate carbonation. The flavor is nothing but hop and alcohol bitterness and astringency. Assertive, aggressive and nearly offensive. Where’s the malt? Finishes liquor-like, harsh and bone dry.
