A a little haze on the appearance, but it doesn't detract from a IIPA, nice, but thin head.

S it had a little less hop aroma than I was expecting. There was nothing that detracted from the aroma, just wish it had a little more aromatic aroma. What was there was piney and citrus.

T Crisp, dry and appropriately bitter. Alcohol content is high, but the beer is not sweet or cloying. This really makes the hop bitterness come through and its hoppier than the aroma would indicate.

M Not a heavy beer, carbonation in good, light to medium body.

O I wish I had another!

From old review notes, drank sometime in May 2012, not sure about freshness.

A Light burnt orange, golden glow. White head dissipates to a to a ring. Persistent carbonation, big lacing.

S Big pungent tropical aromas- pineapple upside-down cake.

T Orange marmalade, orange peel, apricot meat. Light lingering bitterness.

M Crisp-drinking despite the formidable, initially sticky maltiness. Nice bitter pop at the end.

O Is it fresh? Must know. A very good DIPA but way sweeter and juicier than I usually go for.

This looks clear and clean with a bright copper/amber color and a healthy white cover with lots of lacing. The aroma brings a malty pine hop with a light floral complement. Nice. The flavor offers a beautifully blended grass-pine hop bitterness with oak caramel and some alcohol presence. Nutty and a bit leafy. Medium bodied with a soft, well blended carbonation. Very smooth stuff with a little kick. Though it's quite hoppy as I typically like this style to be, there's a bit more alcohol than I like to taste. Nice enough.

A - Pale gold, hazed, some floaties, thick white head has good retention and lacing.

S - Bright, floral hop bouquet with some grapefruit flesh, Not too much in the way of pine aroma in this one. Some booze as it warms.

T - Follows the nose, but with a huge caramel sweetness mid palate, finishing bitter, but not palate-wrecking. Abv is apparent, maybe too much so.

M - Full body, medium carbonation, boozy, thick hop oils, finishes with some hop oils coating the mouth.

O - Good, it stays bitter, but the booziness is just too strong, not hidden well for a 9%er.
