jimbowood (1036) - Freeport, Georgia, USA - JUN 11, 2010
Bottle from beverages 4 less. Muted hop nose. Big, resiny hop flavor. Mildly sweet finish. Mild alcohol burn. Good, but not as citrusy as some of their other iipas.
Earlier Rating: 5/22/2009 Total Score: 4.1
Bottle from Southbay. Resiny, almost syrupy with hops. Not crisp like sculpin, but thick. One fat iipa. Another in a long line of great pp iipa’s.

TimE (6076) - Tokyo, JAPAN - OCT 4, 2017
Deep golden amber color. Stonefruit, earthy, piney nose that exudes malty sweetness. No question this is a big iiipa. Tons of stonefruit, wood, pine, citrus and earthiness, with underlying resininess. Big hoppiness and big malt to back it up. It's somewhat balanced, a bit boozy and warming. Overall it's huge and sticky. It's kinda what I expected a 10-11% iiipa would be and generally I don't see the point of making this type of beer, but I like Port so hoping they could do something unique. I think if it was pizza port it would be something very unique. This is good but not truly my thing

Aromat bardzo orzeźwiający, dużo białych owoców. Zero karmelu, goryczka grejpfrutowa, bardzo solidna, alko lekko rozgrzewa. Dużo ciała, zdecydowanie duża butelka na jedną osobę trochę by zmęczyła.

Bomber->Ocelot glass courtesy of GenDV110k+OT, thanks Donnie! Hazy copper with small frothy offwhite head. A: pine hops and caramel malt dominate. T: same, too malty for a great IPA. Eh.

Bottle thanks to Russell. Pours a cloudy orange with medium frothy off white head that lasts. The aroma is citrus, spruce, grass. Medium body, grapefruit, grass, lingering bitterness, very good.

ALIBALI (2398) - Kiel, GERMANY - JAN 21, 2017
Handelt sich bei meinem Fläschchen, Bombergröße 😀, um ne 2016ner Ausgabe. Relativ fresh also. Gab’s beim MIKKELLER BOTTLE SHOP in Kopenhagen. 92DKK. Schwerst VERHOPFT das Ganze. Hart pampelmusenmatschig und wild DRY. Der Saft, das Elixier und das massiv VERBITTERT. Kratzig, unrund und doch eine Herzensangelegenheit.....zumindest für Hopheads 😍!!! Würde ich wieder kaufen, auch wenn der Nachtrunk massiv alkoholisch aufdringlich ist....irgendwie lägger 😉...HARD STUFF!!!

HPDalen (376) - DENMARK - OCT 8, 2016
Bottle. Pours golden with a white head. Quite malty aroma, caramel, sugar, syrup. Some hoppy grapefruit and orange zest. Fabulous palate, thick and rich body, with just the right carbonation. Bitter finish, long. Mostly bitter with very pleasant sweet tones for balance. Yum!
