Nice tasty Imperial 2xIPA with a good hop aroma and flavor. This was a great beer I liked the malt backing and big hops finish on this big beer. pdx77 (1483) - Oregon, USA - DEC 21, 2013
On draught at Amnesia Brewing for Winter Solstice Fest. Orange golden color. Aroma is sweet citrus. Taste is orange and grapefruit, changing to a sweet black tea with slight bittering. Finishes with a bitter herbal note. BARLEYWINEO (106) - Tacoma, USA - APR 28, 2012

Draft at Hood River Hops Fest 2007. A hazy dark golden beer with an orangey head. The aroma is sweet with strong notes of hops on a malty background. The flavor is sweet hoppy with notes of caramel and malt - like a hop soup. beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - NOV 24, 2006
On tap at Concordia Ale House. NIce slight imiprovement on regualar homoerectus. Still the same ol deliciously hoppy IIPA with added floral hop character. Starts with a sweet malt base that helps this big ol brew. Citrus hops take over and a long bitter finish results.

Tap, Brouwers’ hopfest ’06. This is one suave IIPA. Sham (1844) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 28, 2006
It pours a nice rich slightly cloudy deep red amber. For the intensity with which this thing is hopped, it’s seriously smooth and beautifully balanced in the nose and particuarly in the flavor. Thanks to the dry hopping, we get delightful floral hop bitterness throughout, which coupled with little of the usual PacNW IIPA strong citrus and caramel makes for a distinctive and extrmeely pleasant beer.
This is one of the best hop monsters I’ve ever had; and for me, it’s the best of the night at Hopfest ’06 by a substantial margin. I’d love to have it again at some point...
Mahogany with a foamy head and sheet lacing. Sweet nose of pine and lots of citrus. It is a touch floral with a smidge of bubblegum. Hops start out the flavor with a hint of the bubblegum again. Goes into a herbal and pink grapefruit phase. Ends bitter with sweet caramel malts. Sticky-sweet palate that is a bit cloying. Leaves the lips all sticky like. The bitterness fills out this beer. None to shabby. bitbucket (2166) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - AUG 26, 2006
Draft at Brouwer’s Cafe Hopfest ’06. Cloudy dark amber with a lacy off-white head. Creamy medium body. Bittersweet taste with fruit and malt dissolving to a lightly spice-bitter finish. after4ever (8025) - Mukilteo, Washington, USA - AUG 26, 2006
Draft at Brouwer’s Cafe Hopfest ’06. Dark amber, light head (both color and volume). Some lace. Buckwheat nose. Very sweet chewy attack (by IIPA standards) and mid-palate. Sharp tangy finish that fades to bitter. Maybe the all-time sessionable IIPA/DIPA. harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - MAY 15, 2006
Big spicy and raw, with a huge fresh hop aroma. Lots of soothingly sweet maltiness, fairly bitter, and very raw and aggresive on the hop profile.
