4.18/5  rDev -0.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Reviewed from notes for tasting on 6/9/2011. 2011 Batch

A- Golden, sparkling, clear, and good carbonation. I can't believe how light this beer is. Very misleading appearance once you take the first sip, but it is a beautiful brew. I'm not sure how they get all that hop and alcohol in such a light brew.

S- Grapefruit and alcohol come through in the nose. Smells as an IIPA should

T- Citrusy sweetness with the faintest taste of malt up front with crushing bitterness at the end. The bitterness lingers long after the drink goes down. alcohol, though noticeable in the smell, is imperceptible in the taste.

M- Crisp, clean, and refreshing. Lighter bodied that some in the same class. Very smooth drinking beer.

O- This is one of the best value priced IIPA's out there, imo. It has great flavor and really hits the spot no matter what you are craving. Drink it cold on a hot day, or room temp on a cool day. I like this beer so much that I am continuing my quest in cloning it homebrew style.

4.35/5  rDev +3.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

served from bottle, slightly over a month old.

pours a hazy straw-yellow. small rocky head that dissipates and clings to side of glass.

smells of pungent hops, cannabis, pine, and tropical notes with citrus (this beer is brewed with Summit, Simcoe and Amarillo hops)

front of the tongue has a big wallop of bitterness that quickly transitions to a pungent, dank taste - the sort of typical Simcoe taste. follows with a nice sweetness, citrus and tropical notes, slightly sugary. really well balanced!

overall, this is a great DIPA. great representation of the style, and this brew is incredibly balanced between pungent bitterness and sweeter notes.
