On tap @ Bull and Bush 2004 vintage poured a clear reddish brown with a small but lasting amber head. Aromas of carmel, citrus and pine. Palate was light bodied, dry and resiny. Flavors of pine, toffee and some earthiness with a hint of citrus and a lingering dry finish. Rastacouere (6177) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 10, 2005
Light bronze shade, quickly fading head. Mostly complex hop aromatics (floral, piney), but not melting with the sticky malts to the best of their potential. Indeed in mouth, the big crystals are struck upon by pine needles that grasp the tongue and brings it into the desert – DRY! I’m surprised that no one seems to mention alcohol as this one had it in fumes, whatever the ABV. Served a bit young? MIBRomeo (2570) - Wisconsin, USA - OCT 3, 2005
Brown pour w/ a well laced tan head. Slightly off nose a wierd hop some stank smell and some carmel. A fairly avg pal... fairly well coated. Bad flavor dry hopy wish something just not right in the malt.
Worste IPA i’ve ever tried Terminus (3710) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - APR 11, 2005
tap at falling rock tap house-plurs a dark orange hue with a smooth off-white head. i can smell this beer from 2 feet away-huge array of citric tones going on. the aroma even cut through the smoke in the bar! thats impressive! Big hop notes predominate with some good malt backing. Flavors go back and forth between IIPA and a hoppy Barleywine. Crazy flavors-citric/pine hops, caramel malt base and some good yeast action. im impressed! VERY well balanced. a true winner from Colorado! Murphy (1759) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - FEB 13, 2005
Strong hop presence in the palate. Very mature, balanced mouthfeel, but not quite malty enough. Great hoppy finish, long hop aftertaste. Fruity notes too, I swear it tastes and smells like huckleberries.

Another Double IPA with a big, chewy malt presence that is closely bordering a barley wine. In fact, this is a much better barley wine than Double IPA. What a delicious beer though. Deep orange. An aroma of honeyed fruit, caramel and big resiny hops. Notes of honeyed fruit, caramel, big malt, bigs hops. Nice texture. A little lacking on the palate but still is still pretty tasty.

Draft at the brewery: Clear and deep, dark red. Great, lasting head and sticky lace. Smooth, soft and thick on the tongue with a mild carbonation. Chewy-sweet malt base (but not too sweet) with tasty notes of caramel and toffee. Rich, intense hops; wafty notes of grass and a little pine and flowers. A little citrus, too. Similar to some barleywines I’ve had. Very good beer. Feel lucky if you find it on tap when you visit ... I always seem to just miss it. Last time I went, it was tapped out soon after I ordered a pint. Eyedrinkale (3214) - Astoria, New York, USA - DEC 25, 2003
Man-Man Double IPA. GABF 2003. Poured amber in color with minimal head. A nice, sweet Double IPA. Aroma of hops and flowers. Nice mouthfeel and finish.
