UPDATED: JUL 28, 2009 Growler thanks to hopsleeroy on BA. Thanks Lee! Pours clearish golden with a white head that leaves plenty of sticky lacing. Smell is huge perfume-like hop aroma like fresh hop cones, a slight herbaceous smell and some slight vanilla/oak. Huge, sweet hoppy flavor. Fresh hops and pine cones all over the flavor. Vanilla and dry oakiness as well. So easy to drink this one, I could hardly tell it was 11%. Basically it was like squeezing juice right out of the hops into my mouth.

Growler courtesy of tpd975. Pours a slightly hazy pale golden with a one finger white head that leaves good lacing. Aroma is like sticking your head into a bag of the best hops and reefer in the world with notes of apricot, orange, and lemon with a solid dose of pine. Taste is more hops and reefer. Medium mouthfeel with an insaine amount of bitterness and smooth as hell alcohol. This beer is in no way balanced but I love hops and thats what this beer is all about. A damn fine brew.

Phenomenal aroma from the start. First few sips were almost too strong for me, but after that, it was hoppy goodness. Well balanced. Only negative is its hard to find.

Possibly the best IPA I’ve ever had. A triple IPA, yet so smooth and balanced. My benchmark for big IPAs.

Clearish straw yellow, huge fluffy sticky, rocky head leaves an impression on the glass and is truly spectacular. Fluffy nose, yeasty and minty, highly aromatic and spicy hops. Baby powder feel through the most original ingredient blending, sweet, resinous and cedary, which is an element I truly dig in IPAs. Very perfumey. The taste is not quite as impressive. We’re facing chewy hops that are well-flavored and still cedary/flowery, but more dominant, sappy and like an hopstick rather than a poem. Medium-full bodied, soft to moderate expanding carbonation.

Beautiful, beautiful beer in every way. Delicate hop aroma, but unbelievably pretty, this might be the perfect ipa. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Beer nirvana for me. Had the chance to taste at Toronado side by side to RR PTY. EH was the hands down winner. Wish I could get a second chance but haven’t seen it since.
