Oh, this is nice. They brough in a mini-keg to our little tasting. Awesome! Nothing but hops throughout this baby. I could drink this all the time.
Notice the low overall given the other scores. Well, I had a headache the next morning from this guy and I almost never do from beer. So be careful. Svesse (8601) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - AUG 11, 2006
(Bottle, Oliver Twist, Stockholm, 10 Aug) Colour is pale amber with little head. Nose is fruity and hoppy with apricots, grapefruit and blood oranges. Taste is fruity and serioulsy hoppy with grapefruit, blood oranges, more grapefruit, dried apricots, pine needles and hints of nuts. Hoppy, grapefruity finish. Some sweetness, but well balanced. Alcohol well hidden. A bit one dimensional, but the hops are great. hopscotch (11101) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 9, 2006
Bottle... This one has west coast written all over it. Clear amber ale with an orange tint and a small, fizzy, white head. Big caramel, pineapple, grapefruit and pine aroma with a hint of mango. Big malt and big hops compose the flavor as well. The alcohol is very well-hidden although there is just a little bitterness provided by it. Full-bodied and creamy with lively carbonation. Lengthy, astringent, moderately bitter finish. Grassy at the wee end (hexanal, heptanal or an unGodly abundance of cascades, not sure). Thanks go out to tever for shipping this bottle my way! brstp (201) - - AUG 7, 2006
More intense and sticky than I was expecting. The alcohol and hops sort of hit you over the head and obscure everything else. Smells incredible, though -- almost instantly after opening this great hop aroma came through. My friend smelled it from about five feet away. I’d rather drink the Big Daddy.

Bottle (12oz). Hazy orange, decent frothy lasting beige head. Juicy, citrus/resin hop aroma, alcohol is well hidden, very fresh and mouthwatering, not overpowering at all. Taste is a little overpowering, big hit of alcohol and resin hops, sweet malt backing, but mostly hops and booze. Solid body, acidic and astringent, long boozy finish, nicely carbonated. Just a solid I2PA, would drink this a lot.

Coppery pour with a white head that quickly diminished. Sweet malt and citrus nose is followed by a oliy resinous body packed with citrus rind and pine flavors. A whopper of an IPA. GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - AUG 2, 2006
12 oz bottle. Clear orange color. White head left a thick lace. Smelled of molasses, toffee, caramel, and fruity hops. Flavor, although similar to the aroma, was less inspiring with the addition of alcohol. Not the best IIPA. GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - AUG 2, 2006
Pours like a new copper penny w/ a medium sized, short lived, creamy froth. Aromas of strict lime rind, grapefruit, and sweet malt. Full nectar w/ soft residual effers. Flavors: this is a malt bomb w/ a defined sweetness. Honey, caramel, cherry fruit, pine, grapefruit, wood. The finish is sweet w/ an asprin touch. Alcohol is undetectable. Although there is an overlying sweetness, the overall flavors are somewhat balanced. Overall: a dessert style. harmfuldrunk (288) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 26, 2006
