Bottle. Orange pour with an off-white head. Aromas of booze, earthy hops and sweet caramel malt...but nothing too pungent which is kinda what I hope for with this style: pungent aromas. The flavor was of sweet malts, and oddly light hops which made me consider: "how old is this damn bottle, and how well was it stored?". Sort of a syrupy mouthfeel and finishes somewhat dry. Id love to try another sometime...peferably very fresh...but as it stands now this one was kind of a mess.

Very hoppy beer, both in aroma and bitterness. Like it. Good carbonation. Full body. Not the best of strong IPAs (I love pliny the younger), but still good. Good value at $7/4pack.

jimhilt (2584) - Bow, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 7, 2007
Pours with a two finger light cream head that fades slowly leaving a good lace. Cloudy amber color. Light carbonation and medium bodied. Hoppy malty nose. Flavor begins as sweet caramel but there are a lot of hops here so a sharp hoppy finish that doesnt linger. High ABV is hidden. Much better than their Big Daddy IPA. $2.19 for a 12oz bottle from Hi-Time Cellars Costa Mesa, Ca.

JasonG (776) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - MAR 3, 2007
12 oz bottle: Rather hazy medium yellow color with smallish off white head. Aroma has lots of sweet, resiny citrusy hops, hint of apricot and orange blossom honey. Flavor has some subtle maltiness, bit of herbal hops, some toasted malts, touch of honey. Finish is relatively balanced but with a firm bitterness.

ThirstyHophead (1) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 11, 2007 does not count
Bottle: This medium-bodied IPA with a light off white head that quickly dissipated and a light amber color. Shows aromas and flavors of citus(grapefruit) and pine as well as some malt on the mid palate. A nicely balance IPA for being 9.5% ABV. Would love to try on tap.

This is my first sampling from this brand. Their IPA hits the mark. A real heavy aroma and the beer delivers - start to finish. The alcohol content is apparent and not well hid. But its a real nice american IPA

bhensonb (14617) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 6, 2007
Strong aroma of piney hops backed by malt. Hazy apricot color with minimal whitish head. Starts with a bit of malt which is quickly superceded by piny hop. Mouthfeel is thinnish, getting thin after a bit. Finish seems balanced. The hop persists, but there is malt as well. Not so carried away to the hop extreme as so many of they type.

CapFlu (5111) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 4, 2007
(Bottle) Courtesy of a trade with Blankboy. Pours a near headless, cloudy orange body. Filled with sediment. Nose is very sweet with a bitter hoppy overtone. Reminiscent of Old Crustacean with the double maltedness and piney hops. Very strong, 9.5% ABV, and balanced considering the Double IPA label. Good to the last drop.

Bottle at Brickskeller. Clear, copper color with a white head. Very citrus, grapefruity aroma, with a very similar flavor to the aroma. I had no idea that the alc. content was that high. And as always I love the description of the beer with its gambling/prohibition underground references.
