4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured into a pint glass. Hazy copper color, two fingers of tight head, lots of lacing.
Big citrus smell. Grapefruit and a sharp lemon are the biggest ones.
Aggressive hops from the beginning. Tough to taste anything else, but in the middle there is a little honey flavor... probably the only malt bit that came through. Lasting bitterness.
Lots of bubbles and medium body.
Solid Double IPA. Hits early and big; perfect fit and fun to drink.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pretty good beer. Served at a good temperature with a nice light tan with golden highlights, foamy head that slowly settles and lots of lace. Color is a very slightly hazy orange honey amber. Aroma is hops, dry deciduous twigs, used leather, malt, toffee, hint of butterscothch. Flavorís much like nose and has fairly decent balance for this style of beer which is hop on top (:-}) bitter, then a little malt sweet and carbonic tang to round out. Body is good with bitterness dominating the full mouth and good carbonation. Finish is like flavor, long, and leaves me able to have a couple more.

UPDATED: FEB 1, 2013 16 oz can. Pours dark orange with a nice head. Smells like honey and citrus. Very sweet for a DIPA with some citrus and a nice hoppy bitterness at the end. Very good beer.

UPDATED: MAY 28, 2012 Predominantly piney, though not as piney as Ranger - malt makes it a bit easier to chug down even as the high IBUs are quite conspicuous in flavor. Like the can idea - makes it easier to get a sip, though itís harder to get a whiff unless fully poured.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Cloudy Brown/Orange color with a hefty sized head and boatloads of lacing left behind. The flavors consist of Piney/Citrus/Floral Hops, bready-biscuits and some sweet caramel. This is also a very malty beer, even by IPA standards. Itís medium bodied with an almost chewy thickness to it, but itís smooth and creamy thanks to the lack of carbonation. Overall, itís an excellent IPA that any fan of the style should check out.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can - 12 112 best by date. Pours hazy orangish-brown with a huge foamy off-white head. Big butterscotch and toffee malt on the nose, light herbal hopping, and tons of sweet breadiness. Same sweetness in the taste--big bready notes, toffee, and a big bitter grassy hoppiness on the finish. Pretty big body, fluffy carbonation, and a belly-warming alcohol burn. Overall itís too heavy, sweet, and boozy for me, and the bitter hop profile doesnít make it the smoothest beer around. Iíd have to really be in the mood for this to drink it again.
