Cloudy orange. Light but lasting foam. Big citrus aroma. Long lasting hop flavour and finish. The malt is just strong enough to let the massive hops float through your mouth. I like this beer better than most appear to. Delicious for hop heads without slapping you in the face. Alcohol? What alcohol. goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - DEC 30, 2005
Poured a Poured a clear deep amber color with a large sized long lasting off-white head. Hoppy aroma. Nice and fresh, citrus and floral. Some fruity malt and alcohol notes. Acidic flavor with caramel underneath. Big bitterness running thorugh. Medium bodied. I didn’t expect this one to be so good. I need to pick up some more.

UPDATED: MAY 9, 2008 Pours a viscous, honey nectar with dense froth that is about medium height. Superb head retention w/ thick fluffy lacing that lasts. Strong aromas of spicy citrus rind that clear my sinuses. A thick and slightly creamy style IIPA with bright, pungent citrus rind consistant to the last sip. This is where Robo Hop lives w/ a strict upper hand. Overall: a ballanced brew with alcohol well hidden. Enjoyable. Nice job. Ibrew2or3 (8614) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - NOV 3, 2006
On Tap @ the Liar’s Club. Clear copper color with creamy off white head. Sweet and hoppy aroma. Piney hop flavor backed by just noticeable malt sweetness. Really good tasting IIPA. Braudog (6719) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - NOV 5, 2006
22 oz’er split with my wife. Dark rusty orange with a respectable head. Brutally greasy hopped aroma ... holy hops (as Robin would say to Batman). Deeply salty, dry and earthy hopped, this is big, chewy, grassy hoppy brew. Big beer for big boys like me.

UPDATED: MAY 14, 2005 Barley wine/double IPA hybrid like Hog Heaven and Hop 15. Very dark for the style; deep copper bronze. I purded it heavey and it produced a nice off white head. Head dimishes quickly a leaves a small ring of froth around the glass. Aroma is malty with caramel, raisin, and a little bit of cherry. Palate is really soft and laid back with soft carbonation. Taste is malty sweet with the caramel raisin and cherry that was found in the nose but also includes a touch of roasted malt, figs, dates, and a slight smoke and wood touch. The finish is bitter, but not as much as you would expect from a double IPA. Alcahol is not noticeable. A really unexpected find, and is a great, unique alternative to the normal massively hopped double IPAs. Hightly recommended. bu11zeye (13029) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - FEB 4, 2005
(Bottle) Pours a lightly cloudy amber-orange body with a medium-sized creamy beige head. Aroma of caramel, grapefruit, pine, and dark fruits. Creamy, somewhat bitter palate. Nice blance of hops and malts with a hint of corriander. ghett0yeti (29) - Chandler, Arizona, USA - FEB 14, 2005
Very tasty. I sat down with this beer, wrote out a nice little rating, then read the ones on here. I have since thrown it away because everything is already on here. I highly recommend it. 1FastSTi (3360) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 11, 2005
The aroma is very hoppy. Lots of citrus, pine, and amarillo hops, cascade, centennial, I get it all. I also get a decent amount of malt in it. It pours to a reddish brown hazy body with an off white head that has decent lacing. 80 IBU? Seems more like well over 100 IBU. Kinda like Stone Ruination and more malts. I also get some tannins. The palate is very hot from the dry hopping. I’d like to try this beer after sitting for more months. I wonder how the palate would be.

Unfiltered, lovely bronze / orange. Some splotches for a head and nice lacing. Great aroma of honey, lavender, lemon grass and warm orange juice. True to style. Maple and hops predominate the flavors. A little bit of sugar sprinkled grapefruit to give it the I2PA edge. Some malt sweetening for balance. Reminds me of Ruinition with more of a malt backbone. Fine, solid rendition of the style. Thanks to 1FastSTi for sharing.
