4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
On tap @ Aces & Ales in Vegas. Deep red-orange with a caramel and husky vegetal aroma. Rich oily hoppy palate, very resinous and coniferous. I frigging loved this-- such freshtastic hoppiness!!
On draft at Tap 25. It pours an amber color with an orange head. Pretty dark for a IIPA. The aroma has brown sugar and floral hops. Boozy smelling, but good. The flavor reminds me of SN Bigfoot. More of a hoppy barleywine really with brown sugar, caramel and spicy, floral hops. Maybe a bit of tropical fruit near the finish. A nice tasty sipper. kathouse (1942) - LAS VEGAS, Nevada, USA - FEB 18, 2013
Medium amber with sticky foam lacings. Aroma of line and caramel malts. Medium body with good mouthfeel. Resinous hops give a nice bitter punch without being overpowering. Finish is sweet and dry. marcus (10867) - Sacramento, California, USA - DEC 4, 2012
On tap at Beer Revolution. Pours dark red with a really nice red malt aroma and almost no head. There is a hearty smoked malt flavor that is a bit fruity with a bitter finish. Very nice. mrmartin (786) - New York, New York, USA - NOV 27, 2012

Draft at Brouwer’s Cafe. Pours a hazy amber color (bottom of the keg; normally not this hazy) with a small off-white head. Aroma of citrus, pine, and tropical fruits, with some backing caramel malts. Flavor of pine resin, grapefruit, caramel, tea, orange peel, and floral notes. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a chewy, resinous mouthfeel. Solid DIPA. brokensail (16689) - Dublin, California, USA - OCT 10, 2012
Amber colored beer with a white head. Super fresh citrus hop nose and a lot of floral qualities, too. Nice sweet caramel, a bit of pine, and some toffee. Sweet toffee up front along with a bit of pineapple. Tons of grapefruit, some floral hops, and a nice pine flavor and bitterness on the finish.

On tap. Pours with a hazed deep copper hued body with a lasting, foamy off-white to tan head. Aromas are dank, hoppy, citrus, papaya, dragon fruit, toasted malt, caramel, some esters and alcohol. Lots of malt character, but it works. Flavors are malty, bready, lots of alcohol, marmalade, dank, resiny. Medium carbonation. BIG! Too much residual sweetness for my taste in hoppy beers. zdk (1917) - New York, New York, USA - SEP 11, 2012
