3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear amber/bronze and 3cm of dense off white foam that settles slowly to a thin layer. Aroma of resinous, piney, herbal, and lightly citrusy hops with some lightly sweet malt in the background. Flavor has clear grapefruit, adds some vegetation, floral notes, and more sweetness. Medium/full body, balanced carbonation, lightly resinous. Solid.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
From the bomber ... Pleasantly orange, quietly active wtih a nice solid poofy head of lacey foam. The aroma is beautiful ... woodsy, piney, airy, and citricly fruity. From the first sip, my tummy is a happy tummy ... warming and smooth, this carries a rich resiny hop character. The bitter finish is just right, but this could do with a tad more balance.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nov. 2005 - Beer poured with nice color and moderate head. Appearance and taste was of citrusy/piney hops. There were some nice maltiness there, but not really enough. Mouthfeel was kinda oily. The alcohol taste was prevalent and overly bitter. Good, but not great

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear, firey orange body with a small white head that settles to a thin film. Minimal spotty lacing noted. The aroma shows big and buttery, toffee malts, brown sugar, and ample tangerine and pine hops. The flavor is again very malty up front. Heavily buttered toffee, biscuit, and caramel comprise the malt base. Hops of the grapefruit variety are moderately strong, but far from overpowering. Excellent balance. Mildly astringency in the long, bitter finish, but not enough to get worked up over. Substantial body makes for a medium-full mouthfeel. Slightly sticky though not overly cloying. Nice brew.

Bottle sampled. Pours a copper color with a nice white head. Nice hoppy aroma of pine, grapefruit, and sweet malts. Flavor is well balanced with caramel, citrus, grapefruit and some malt sweetness with a strong and clean finish. A very good double ipa.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: FEB 1, 2014 22 ounce bottle in pint glass. Bright copper with flat head and nice lace. Fresh hop aroma with malty undertones. Nicely balanced flavor with malty start and medium bitter finish. Medium-full body, medium carbo. Very slight alcohol. A tasty if not distinctive brew. Very good.
Rerated because I always thought it was better in 12 ounce bottles.
