4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle, 22oz. (RBNAG 07) Pours an orange-golden, almost clear pour with an off-white to beige head. It sure has a hop-dominated aroma, fruity, tropical fruits and citrus, pine and resin, with a heavy maltyness in the supporting role. Nice flavor too, fruity, piney, malty, quite sweet and sure bitter. Fruity, piney, bitter finish as well. Full body. Loved this IIPA, beautiful mix of hops and malt. (071103)

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Golden amber color, not much head. Very strong aroma of blackcurrant leaves. Medium to full bodied. Aggressive sweet honeyish hoppyness, some blackcurrant also in the flavor. Unbalanced, not my cup of tea.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
A: Deep amber color, hazy, thin off-white head.
S: Tons of citrus, mostly orange. Nice piney, resinous finish. It’s got my mouth watering already.
T: A burst of grapefruit and orange initially, followed by a caramel sweetness and a bit of alcohol on the finish. Bitter, but not overly so.
M: Very smooth, great body, and perfect level of carbonation.
D: Despite the high ABV and the slight alcohol bite, this one has such great flavors that you could drink it all day.

Bright copper amber; large hop aroma - mint, grapefruit. Chewy and bitter palate - toffeeish malts and citrusy hops, sugar tarts, leaves. Chewy hops resonate in the lingering finish.

4.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: NOV 16, 2011 22 oz. bottle, split with Matts_Property, pours a beautiful opaque dark orange with a small white head. Aroma screams tropical fruits, with peaches, mango, mandarin oranges, truckloads of citrus and resinous hops, and rich caramel malts to balance. Flavour is omnipotent, with rich tropical fruits as aforementioned, loads of citrus and resinous hops, balanced by sufficient caramel malts, finishing tropical fruity and citrus hoppy. Magnificently well-done IIPA. Deserving of its reputation.
