Bottled. One of the unstamped. Best I’ve had in the series. Big caramel presence with tropical fruit. Nice resinous hop flavor, medium bitterness, and a long finish.

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!

I’m assuming that this is a subsequent bottling of #66 Bottle dated NA67.10.AUG1. No help on the Blog.
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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tasted on 7/13/12 on draft at the brewpub. Pours clear orange-amber with an average white head that slowly recedes, leaving messy lace. The nose is super hoppy with tons of bitter grapefruit peel, a hint of pitted fruit, and the same bready caramel malt that comes with most of these Hop Projects. The flavor is dominated by the intensely, but pleasantly bitter grapefruit peel, pitted fruit blossom, and bready caramel. The body is medium with average carbonation and a long very bitter grapefruit peel finish.

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.
