mcberko (16960) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 1, 2014
12 oz. bottle, sent from Glouglouburp (thanks a lot, Dany), pours a cloudy, solidly opaque orange with a medium white head. Nose is lovely, bringing out truckloads of rich resinous hops, a bit of tropical fruit, and a big solid caramel malt backbone. Flavour is divine, bringing out an extremely juicy flavour profile, with notes of resinous hops, grapefruit, citrus peel, and caramel malt to back. Superbly balanced, with just enough malt to give this a chewy mouthfeel that wonderfully compliments the big juicy, resinous hop profile. A supreme IIPA here.

Bottle @ Bobby’s house. Orange pour with a white head. Big pine, orange, and grapefruit aromas. A bit of sweet malt/bread in the background. Flavor is intensely bitter. A bit too sharp/harsh for me. Lots of pine, grass, orange, and grapefruit. Just a touch of caramel and bread sweetness.
