This is probably the best double IPA I have had since Surly 16 grit. Copper color. Little carbonation. Big hop aroma with grapefruit and citrus. More of the same in the flavor, but the alcohol is noticeable in the aftertaste. A sweet hop flavor. Very nice.

Has the expected piney citrus aroma mixed with some fruity aspects and a strong alcohol presence in both smell and taste. Its not quite as hoppy as expected, because of a lemony alcohol dominating. The hops are tangy and bittersweet. The alcohol stirs in the stomach at the end.

On tap at Coles Buffalo NY. Pours a pretty light golden. Piney citrus hop aroma along with some booziness. Nice pine hop explosion. Resiny sticky hops. Full mouthfeel. well done

Soonah (1120) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - JUL 24, 2009
From coyotehunter via trade. Poured a slightly hazy golden color with a short white head. Sticky lacing. The aroma is resinous pine hops, light citrus and a whiff of alcohol. The flavor is pretty much the same thing, aggressive, sticky pine hops that find very little balance with softer caramel malts or citrus. Medium bodied, almost oily mouthfeel. Slightly unchecked alcohol heat. Just OK.

CanIHave4Beers (4054) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - JUL 22, 2009
Pours blonde with a small head. The aroma is kind of alcohol forward but not in a bad way, it mixes well with the citrus and pine, just a touch of caramel balances this one out. Flavor is well balanced between sweet and dry, there is plenty of mango with some citrus and a good hop bitterness.

Poured a golden-amber with med head. Had a spicy aroma with some hops in there too. Flavor was very full with lots of hops and malt. Overall a really solid IIPA

UPDATED: FEB 26, 2010 7/22/09. Thanks Andy! Spicy, piny hops. Some alcohol in the aroma. Aroma isnt hugely hoppy but is nice. Nice, moderately "rough" hop bitterness in the finish. Solid malt body, its no Cali IIPA. 2/26/10. Oniony, garlicy. Same rating.

argo0 (13442) - Washington DC, USA - JUL 17, 2009
(12oz bottle) Medium off-white head that leaves nice lacing atop clear light amber body. Aroma is medium sweet, pine, grapefruit, light peach. Taste is moderately sweet, intensely bitter pine/grapefruit, some alcohol. Soft medium-full body, some chewiness. Not bad, but more maltiness to counter some of the alcohol would really improve this one.

Bottle. Pour was dark golden/amber with a lasting head. Aroma was of grapefruit, light peach, and citrus. Malt was also prevalent in the flavors along with a complex bitterness. Very flavorful and pleasant brew. Another great creation from a great brewery.
