bottle from LizardvilleRR - meh, skip the gimmicks Troegs call it an IIPA and load it full of more hops and more hops, this tastes like a flat bodied super balanced Pale rather than whatever it was supposed to be

12oz bottle, aromas of grassy and roasty hops, pale color, frothy head, light sweetness, medium bitterness, well balanced. lively CO2, medium body, almost light for this style. Grassy, earthy notes in taste, slight bitter finish. This was one of those beers that the more I drank of it, the more I liked it.,

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: OCT 26, 2012 Golden-orange hue with a thick white head that leaves nice sticky lacing. The aroma didn’t do much for me and the taste had a bit too much of a spice in it, but overall this is a good beer.
*Re-rated. This beer is so complex, that it needs multiple tastings to fully appreciate. The aroma and taste are better than I originally gave it credit for.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a translucent gold with a thin, white head. Good lacing. Floral hoppy aroma. Do I detect cascade and centennial? I think so. Effervescent mouth feel. Hop bitterness pronounced in the taste, but not overpowering. Great IPA.
