Thanks to ughsmash for this brew. Pours out a light copper color with a small lacing white head. Aroma was of intense hops pine, floral and citrus hops domniate the nose. The taste is very smooth well balanced but still with that nice hop bite. Pine hops on the taste and a nice finish. Very solid beer with an extremely well masked alcohol content

Naven (1000) - Poway, California, USA - OCT 29, 2006
This one smelled terrific. Classic piney, grassy IIPA. A bit rough, especially on the finish. Overall, it was good, but nothing stood out about it.

UPDATED: AUG 23, 2007 12 ounce bottle from footbalm, split with csbosox.
Crystal clear darker side of amber. Very resinous khaki head with load of lace. Aromas of cookies, pastries, and loads of pine. Very bitter. Pine and citrus. Some tropical stuff. Maybe a touch of funk. Hidden alcohol. Medium/light body. Dry finish. Petty nice, but not a fave.

Dickinsonbeer (5077) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - OCT 27, 2006
Pours a bright deep amber and a fluffy sticky white head and some thin lacing. Aroma is piney (almsot light smokey) and citrus with light ruby-red grapefruit, and a thick sweet caramel malt (Slight herbal hops as well). Nice hoppy grapefruit flavor, fruit juice, estery, very clean palate and a nice prickly hop bitterness. On my first bottle, I wasnt too impressed, but on this second bottle I really started to like it a lot. Nice DIPA!!

Hop whore is great but not on par with say great divide hercules double IPA. Biter. The bitter after taste bite is a bit short. Better than extra bw from hell.

Ernest (6143) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 23, 2006
Bottle, hopscotch post-GABF party 2006. Body is medium to dark amber. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (toasted grain), lightly to moderately hoppy (grapefruit, resin, apricot). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Surprisingly tame, certainly not a hop-bomb, which was the most notable aspect based on the style. Seemed more like an APA, really...which is not a bad thing for me; I was glad the hops weren’t overwhelming. But with little else of interest, it didn’t end up being very exciting.
