4.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
I was in Tampa in October and while trying to find something halfway decent there and got one of these. It was so incredibly delicious, that I figured I must have been desperately beer-starved at the time and had lost all perspective. Then I came home to Wisconsin and found it at Woodmans, and it is still incredibly delicious, time and time again. Itís been a month now, it is still a grand delight at every sip, and it still kind of semi-trounces all my old standards (Stone Ruination, Bells Hopslam, Victory Hop Wallop, Tyranena Hop Whore). This is a beautiful, beautiful beer.

I?ve had better double IPAs. Not really getting any nose on this one, but does have the big "stank" finish that one is looking for. Think I?ll pass next time on this one. Bring more aroma next time.

Pours rusty orange with nice one finger head. Aroma of citrus, pine, tropical fruits, pine, dank hops, and herbal hop with some light sweet and bready malts. Has a medium- full body with a creamy mouthfeel. Overall, a tasty DIPA.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle into snifter glass, hazy rusty-amber color with cream colored head. Aroma of strong pine/grapefruit hops, heavy malt sweetness, light fruitiness and faint woody note. Taste adds notes of caramel, berries, lemon rind, dried fruit (prunes mainly) and honey. Heavy body, low carbonation, sticky, syrupy, dry with lingering citrus bitter finish. A monster yet balanced DIPA, showcases the complexity of the simcoe hop well.

Deep amber, some brown, moderate haze, light tan head medium retention. Aroma of woods and red berries, some sweetness. Flavor starts with a cherry like essence, moves into some sweetness with resin, fades in a long slow finish with strong woody bitterness. Quite nice.

Iíll be honest here, its too much. I donít know if my taste buds have turned but I feel this is just a full-on-in-your-face-malty-hoppy-behemoth that lacks that refined taste. I prefer light body ipaís so I may be biased, but the malt sweetness is too much. Apricot juice, thats its.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Big sweet nose with little direct hop aroma. Deep amber color with a spongy head. Warm round body of malt with a heavy dose of alcohol that injects hops into the corners of the mouth. Not so bitter actually though the flavor is characterized by hops. Slight alcohol burn after swallow and a peppery finish.
