COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
For this batch, we decided to use a lot more late-addition hops to mellow out the bitterness while getting a lot of flavor and aroma. We used Columbus for first wort, Cascade and Amarillo at 30 minutes left in the boil, and Zeus and Galena at 5 minutes left. We then dry-hopped it at day 4 in the fermenter with Cascade and Zeus. EDITOR’S NOTE: Bottle labels are notched second week of August.

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 12, 2010
Pours with a clear, amber body topped by a thin to medium thick head with a good amount of lacing. It’s hoppy and bitter with a light citrus note, a little mustiness, and a slight malt note. Medium bodied, smooth and slightly warming.

Bottle courtesy of Butters on 11/05/2009. Bottled Week 2 of August. Slightly hazy copper amber body with a medium frothy off-white head. Big citrus and resiny hop aroma. Sweet citrus and resiny hop flavor, with a pale malt background and lots of bitterness. Medium full body with moderate carbonation.

Butters (3736) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - NOV 5, 2009
Bottle shared with maniac. Pours a slightly hazy orange amber with foamy eggshell head and sticky lacing. Sweet green piney citrus hops. Flavor is similar, but with an extemely bitter finish. Very good IPA, but not the best HP.

BeerHawk (1810) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - NOV 1, 2009
Bottle marked Aug Wk 2. Poured orange with a creamy off-white head that settled to a ring and left good lace. Nice blend of caramel, pine, and citrus in the aroma. The flavor found floral and pine backed with caramel. Medium body, creamy texture, medium bitterness that is lasting.

puggy211 (711) - cordova, Tennessee, USA - OCT 10, 2009
Pours an amber body with an off-white head that has legs. Smells of pine and citrus hops. Flavor is pine sap and honey. Finish has a hint of bitterness and is a little floral.pretty good.

SpringsLicker (3121) - Tennessee, USA - SEP 21, 2009
Pours a dark gold with a good off-white head. Hop based aroma. The flavor of this one is harsh hop bitterness. This needs more malt to balance and a bit less bittering hops.

lithy (2996) - Capital of Appalachia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 1, 2009
Growler thanks to nqualls. Red-orange, off white foam, nice lacing. Aroma is resinous, pine, some orange and citrus mixed in. The taste is more floral, oranges, grapefruit, citrus, then a light pine finish. The body itself is nice and full of caramels, toffee that lends a fruitiness.

3.8
   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 16/20
tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - AUG 29, 2009
12 oz bottle much thanks to nqualls. Pours bold orange with lasting beige head. The aroma is fresh, dank hops all around... pot, orange, tangerine, lemon zest, grapefruit, a hint of taffee. The flavor is nice and orangey with some garlicky hop notes, hints of toast, and some dusty pine. The finish is just a touch of the watery side, but with an interesting spruce note. This is some good stuff.

NachlamSie (2737) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 29, 2009
Tronraner, you are the man. This beer is awesome. So intensely dank. I mean, marijuana, garlic, peppers, lots of evergreen just blowing up my nose. This beer smells amazing. The flavor delivers tons of hoppy bitter goodness on my palate. Lots of garlic bite with plenty of Christmas tree and peppers. This is one dank beer. It reminds me of Hopsickle’s little brother.

BossHossBikes (148) - California, USA - AUG 29, 2009
Bottle thanks to Tronraner. Pours a clear auburn with a nice beige head. The aroma is intense with grapefruit and pine with some grassy notes. The flavour starts a bit more tame than I expected but very quickly becomes more intense. It has tons of grassy notes as it sits on the tongue. As it passes, pine becomes evident as grapefruit starts to arise. A nice bitterness bites in the finish. This is really, really good.
