An amber color with a white head. Aroma contains a bit of caramel and also some oranges and pine. The flavor is bitter but well balanced with some caramel, orange peels, and grapefruit. The finish is a good balance of malt and hops. Overall I dig this one alot. This tastes even better now that Oakland is in the playoffs!

This beer was actually Hop Project #67 but not listed on rate beer yet. I thought this was a great IPA - great aroma right out of the bottle, poured a deep burnt orange that was quite hazy. Small amount of lightly caramel colored head. Good taste. Citrus, hoppy good IPA!

Pours clear gold with a tall sticky white head.
Pine and citrus hop aroma.
Good balanced flavor, bitter with a discernible malt support delivered clean and smooth with a nice bitter finish.

Pretty dynamic and layered. Somewhat grassy. The flavor changes on the palate several times. Smooth.

UPDATED: SEP 20, 2012 12 oz. Stamper was working for the 66 on 01 Jul 12. Darkish, hazy copper with a lasting film of creamy foam. Aroma is earthy resin, citrus, and dark toffee. Flavor is molasses, tea leaf, lightly earthy sour orange, and some dank green resinous herb. Light-medium body is balanced and has light-medium carbonation.

Thanks to jcwattsrugger for the bottle. Pours a hazy yellow-orange with a white head. Nose is some caramel, some piney tropical fruit, and some big white grapefruit. Flavor is similar- starts with light malt, continues to piney, white grapefruity tropical fruit. Interesting beer overall. Medium in body with lingering hops in the finish. Best Hop Project beer I have tried to date.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Got this bottle from a friend. Pours a nice golden amber color with a nice white pillow of head not lacking retention. The aroma of these hops are atypical to "pacific northwest" aroma that most IPA drinkers will recognize; although, Iím sure they were grown in the region. It has a very deep floral, spicy aroma with hints of citrus which, collectively, really bring out the aroma of the malts. The body is equally as deep as the smell. It has a slight sweetness from the crystal malts balanced with the toasty, grainy flavors from the Munich and pale base malts. It is bitter and balanced with bursts of piney, woodsy hops which, coupled with the aroma, give it a complex hop balance. The palate doesnít linger quite as long as I wish. Overall itís a nice IPA
