GABF 2008. Hazy burnished golden. Strong resinous pine needle aroma (more authentically coniferous than most). Massive grapefruit oil hop attack, long dry bitter resinous finish. Exceptional.

Draft. Amber beer with an off-white head. Nice grapefruity aroma. Grapefruit and rind flavor with some malt to back (just the right amoutn - not too present and not too dry). Medium-plus bodied. Grapefruit and rind linger with slight pine.

Poured from tap an amber-orange with thin white head. Nose is strong with floral hops and pine. Flavor jumps at you with floral hops, pine, gratefruit bitters, and a very light caramel sweetness. Overall, a great hoppy beer that has some malt balance and definitely does not seem like a 9 percenter. The after taste has a little melted plastic note that detract from the overall experience but not bad. I liked this one and could drink more.

19Ei8hty (1134) - Washington, USA - SEP 24, 2008
Golden straw body with big hops upfront that dominate all aspects of the drink. Super floral and piney with enough subtle, malt sweetness to balance.

Hophead22 (2880) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - SEP 21, 2008
Tap at brewery. Not an overly impressive DIPA. Lacked the hop punch you would expect. Not alot of anything really, was slightly better as it warmed.
