HogTownHarry (6562) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - JUN 6, 2006
UPDATED: JUN 7, 2006 Bottle (12oz). Shared with blankboy, his bottle via trade with DarkElf. Been looking forward to this for a long time. Poured very murky yellowy-orange, small bubbly head, plenty of hop sludge and chunksin the bottom. Aroma of grapefruit, citrus, tons of malt, hints of lactose - nice. Taste starts very sweet, candy and fruit, then waves of resiny hops come over the top - balanced mostly bitter finish, very grapefruit pithy. Decent body, mouthfeel lightly carbonated and acidic/astringent - long finish. Very nice - Ive had better, and I suspect this one shines brighter on tap or when its fresher - very nice

GHBF: Thanks for the taste JoeM and DarkElf for suppling the bottle! I didnt really take many notes with this tasting, I was enjoying the beer way too much. Did write down the numbers however and a tell tale sign on the wonderfulness of the night. "My taste buds need resurrected", whatever the heck that meant.

Pailhead (6539) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - JUL 17, 2005
Bottle: Courtesy of DarkElf via trade/ Real big sweet and citrusy hops in the aroma. Pours a transparent orange with a small soapy white head. Sweet up front with a hint of apricot and an excellent well balanced citrus hop finish. One of the better balanced IIPAs Ive ever had.

ClarkVV (6400) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 15, 2005
UPDATED: AUG 8, 2005 2004 bottle, mailed to me on pure generosity by Footbalm! Thanks, Eric! Before even pouring, you can see that the bottle is lightly hazy. In a tulip glass, it appears very reddish-orange, with some peach/rose hues and a fleeting off-white head. Lightly hazy and not heavily filtered (thank god). Smells pretty standard; lightly toasted malt, some residual sugars, hints of caramel, highly floral hops (as opposed to heavy citrus). Flavor starts with fruity hops (juicy pear, apple, orange, peach) and a decent dose of dry caramel and toffee. So far so good. As I smell it now, more citrus is coming through than before. Lightly earthy notes break through as well, like hacking through thickly overgrown underbrush in the midst of the rainy season. It starts to get excessively bitter, but the sweet honey maltiness keeps it down. I wont say my favorite Double IPA, but it is not terribly unbalanced and quite juicy and flavorful. Good if you are in the mood for hops.

egajdzis (6362) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 10, 2004
Hazy orange gold color with a small off white head, no lacing. Strong citrus, piney, grapefruit hop aroma. Bitter hops, citrus fruits, light alcohol. Very nice IIPA punch. Very enjoyable, I like these west coast IIPAs.

Very strong, very hoppy, big in a good way with a great balance of pine and grapefruit notes I like in an IIPA.

Suttree (6286) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - APR 9, 2005
Cloudy yellow, pretty big white head. Sweet & hoppy aroma, with notes of grapefruit and pine. Hops dominate at first - smoky, resiny pine, and ctrus, too. The malt profile emerges toward the end - viscous and slippery, with a subtle sweetness, and a few more notes of smoke. Big & bold, very nice. Thanks to Darkelf for the trade!

Rastacouere (6176) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 7, 2004
12oz: Clear orange hue, not much head at all, just a white ring. Big orange aroma. Hops in there are extremely oily, resinous. Sweet C-hops galore provide piney, pineapple, and orange flavours. Theres a weird freezing iodine-like outline all the way that, mixed with the honeyish malt, provide perhaps a touch more astringency than I hoped for. Bitterness is aggressive, resinous. High carbonation surprisingly, yet the mouthfeel is rather oily.

JPDIPSO (6093) - Wauwatosa, USA - AUG 23, 2005
Thanks Tom. Bronzed color with a light beige head and decent lacing. Aromas of mild herbs, and plenty of hops (some hopsack with is good). Mild malt undertones make me wish for more. Dry flavors of malt, honey and nuts. Seems a bit more traditional as far as IPAs or IIPAs go. A very dry example. Havent decided if it is good or bad yet. I long for a rerate.
