Radek Kliber (6519) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - JUN 21, 2011
Bottle 330 ml
Aroma mild for double IPA nose. Soapy hops with dry alcohol, barley wine like malty bottom.
Appearance amber with light haze. Plus sized white frothy top. Good looking with decent life span. Noted lace.
Flavor and Palate : Medium plus bodied. Sweet crystal malt with light alcohol on sides. Fresh green hops on top of your palate. Solid brew but with its considerable malty side I would categorize this as American Barley Wine.

Koelschtrinker (10833) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 12, 2011
Das Bier beginnt dunkel hopfig und zeigt hier bereits seine Stärke. Darüber hinaus wird es im Mittelteil intensiver, der Hopfenanteil bleibt gleich, die Süße steigt aber. Weiterhin dunkel, etwas klebrig, grasig, vollmundig. Malziges, in Teilen schweres IPA. 5/10/11/11/6/11

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAY 19, 2011
Bottle: Pours a clear deep copper orange with a spotty-lacing off-white head. Has a lightly sweet toasted caramel malty nose with some slightly-muted floral resiny hop notes. Starts with pretty good fullness and light malty sweetness with some soft caramel and oxidation flavors with a good amount of resiny bittering hops before a slightly drier semi-sweet finish. Seems like it’s been sitting around for a few months, but still a pretty good IIPA.

Matts_Property (831) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 17, 2011
11.2oz bottle split with mcberko. Pours a cloudy brown amber. Aroma of caramel and citrus fruit. Flavour the same with hints of peach and apricot, with a nice bitter kick at the end. Incredibly smooth and silky. Really good.

mcberko (6702) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 17, 2011
11.2 oz. bottle, split with Matts_Property, pours murky orange with a small head. Very fruity aroma of peaches, dried apricot, mango and citrusy hops. Flavour is more bitter and hoppy than the nose suggests, though the very fruity presence is still there. Mango, peaches and apricots form the body underneath some potent resinous hops, with then linger on and on. Wonderful IIPA.

Bold tasty DIPA, though pricey. A good hop selection. A tad of sourness. Ken’s bottle.

Dry and hoppy with hints of pine, not really that bad, just not among the best.

Ernest (6260) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - APR 10, 2011
Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, off-white, mostly lasting. Body is medium to dark amber. Aroma is moderately malty (caramel, cookie, toasted grain), moderately hoppy (apricot, resin), moderately yeasty (dough), with notes of dried mango, black tea, and alcohol. Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately bitter. Medium to full body, syrupy/velvety texture, lively carbonation, moderately alcoholic. Although I’m not fond of the doughy yeast or resinous hop notes, there are plenty of other aromatic components that are attractive...overall pleasant. The flavor balance is also quite good for the style...it’s not overboard with sticky sweetness nor overly abrasive with bittering hops. Good for the style.

JoeMcPhee (8510) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - APR 3, 2011
Deep amber pour with a tight white head. The aroma is lovely, soft and hoppy with notes of mango and pineapple. Some light juicy fruit and passionfruit aroma as well. Fairly rich and sweet, but it works quite well despite that.

madsberg (10308) - Søborg, DENMARK - MAR 6, 2011
Bottled. @ Moeder Lambic. Amber coloured. Unclear. Dense beige head. Aroma of herbs, flowers, citrus and caramel. Flavour of herbs, caramel, flowers and some grassy and sweet notes. Medium to full bodied. Has a floral bitterness in the end.
