Tap. Translucent copper/gold color. Nice white head that quickly vanishes. Pine, grapefruit, and other citrus aromas flow from the glass. Thick body and mouthful. The taste is sweet with solid malt backbone. Powerful citrus hops dance with sweet malts. Bitter hop taste lingers in mouth. Faint alcohol burn finish. Not bad at all. jasonp (1581) - Ashburn, Virginia, USA - NOV 16, 2006
UPDATED: JAN 18, 2008 Clear copper/orange with an off-white head. Very fresh tea-like cascade/centennial hop aroma; somewhat unique - I wonder if this was made with NY State-grown hops? Very floral, piney and resiny with grapefruit, caramel, vanilla and tangerine. Fresh and vibrant tasting. Pleasanly assertive yet very smooth bitterness. Full bodied with a smooth texture and lively carbonation. Excellent. ante (3373) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - NOV 16, 2006
Bottled at Oliver Twist, shared with omhper. Clear amber with a small white head. Big elastic grapefruit aroma with peppery undertones. Thich hoppy grapefruity flavour with sugary undertones. very long finish of grapefruit and pine with a peppery heat from the alcohol. omhper (25162) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - NOV 16, 2006
Bottled at Oliver Twist, Stockholm. Clear amber, no head. Concentrated sweaty grapefruit aroma. Sweet with dense mouthfeel. Extremely hoppy with shampoo-like perfumy notes. Arousing alcohol mingles with massive amounts of grapefruity hops, somewhat sugary and with a slight burning sensation. The malt only provides a foundation - getting completely overrun by hops. Finish? Well the 153 IBUs speaks... scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - NOV 15, 2006
TITW Part Deux - Thanks for sharing Growler. Clear orange, thin white creamy head. Deeply hopped nose of pine, grapefruit, and pineapple. Heavy tropical fruit, earth, and citric bitterness throuhgout that slowly blends with the light sweet caramel malt character. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, dry bitter finish. ABV well hidden too. Very nice...

On tap at Blue Dog Family Tavern. Poured into a Chimay glass a dark amber/copper with small off-white head. Hops and sweet caramel in the nose. Big hop flavor and mellow at the same time. Sweet maltiness balances out a delicious brew. Sticky on the mouth, lip-smacking good!! Excellent. nijuro (63) - USA - NOV 11, 2006
really nice, flavorful, sticky ipa. nice bitterness and earthy aromas (duh) and a hell of a long finish. SoLan (1550) - Florida, USA - NOV 8, 2006
Deep amber. Modest, frothy, tan-ish/off white cap. Nose is earth, resinous pine, leather, subtle citrus, lightly sweet, moderately bitter. Flavor adds more bitterness and cannibus. Full, balanced body. Excellent. Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 7, 2006
UPDATED: OCT 24, 2008 In short: A brutally intense IIPA going over the top in all departments. Surprisingly excellent.
How: Bottle 22oz, drank fresh (two month after getting it straight from the brewery)
The look: Clear copper body topped by a small off-white head
In long: Thick caramel and resinous hops on the nose. Tree roots dipped in caramel and hops resin covered by honey. The beer is very sweet and a little syrupy but there’s a top of hops in there so that’s ok with me, balanced is almost achieved. Hopping is foresty, sticky hops resin and citrus fruits. The 11% is rather well hidden when cold but by this is not a beer you drink quickly and by the end of my bottle the beer had warmed up and the alcohol was rather apparent yet surprisingly not annoying. Also as the beer warmed up the thick round caramel became crisp caramel candy. The Unearthly is out of this world… makes sense.
