Received in trade from phisigben, thanks for the opportunity! Pours a fairly cloudy golden yellow color with a smallish bubbly white head that displays moderate retention and lace. Smells of pine, resin, and citrus, bits of tropical fruit and grass with barely any malt to be found. Taste is much the same as the aroma. Heavy handed dry hopping with dank baggies, pine needles and grapefruit juice. Leaves a long lingering lemon/grapefruit/citrus on the palette after each sip has hit the gullet. Medium to thick body for an IPA, moderate to low level of carbonation with a sticky resinous bitter mouthfeel. I liked this one, but I found the bitterness a little harsh and heavy on the lemon. It's a great DIPA, but I've had better in the style.

A: hazy yellow orange pour with a nice inch thick head.

S: strong citrus hops smell. I get a lot of peach. Maybe some mango. This beer smells amazing!

T: Nice. Tastes much like it smells. Strong peach up front with a complimentary malt finish. Great citrus aftertaste. Good beer. I'm surprised at how long the peach aftertaste stays with me!

M: very crisp up front with a very dry finish.

O: Great beer. It's a little pricey but worth it on a Christmas afternoon.

Bomber into a pint glass

Ap- pale dull yellow and hazy. 1/2 in of foamy head that lasts pretty well.

Ar- grapefruit, citrus, pine, honey and lemons

T- grapefruit and pine with abundant hop oils. This is a crisp beer, I also taste some grass and apricot.

M- good carbonation, medium bodied and dry. The hop oils do a good job of wrecking my oral cavity.

O- This is one great DIPA. It is crisp and well hopped. A perfect example of a DIPA for my taste buds. Now only if FFF was here in MN...

Pours a hazy golden orange with a one finger head that lingers leaving great lacing. Aromas of sweet malts and bitter hops. Taste follows the nose but it's a bit to sweet for a dipa in my opinion. Not the easiest drinking dipa and not in the top of this style. Still not a bad beer it's just not for me

Review input from notes. Enjoyed 3/29/11

Pale yellow with just a touch of orange. The bodied is slightly hazed. Two finger bone white head set atop. Retention is decent, the head moves back at a moderate pace. A fair amount of moth eaten lacing is left plastered to the walls of the glass.

Grapefruit and pine dominate the nose. There is a strong resinous hop aroma in this beer. Slight floral almost grassy notes lie underneath. The aroma is nearly void of any malt.

The flavor begins with a strong grapefruit pith immediately followed by a biting pine flavor. As the beer warms a subtle citrusy sweetness and a lemony flavors breaks up the intense bitterness a bit. A very heavy resinous flavor is left digging into the tongue. Light pale malt flavor makes an appearance late.

Medium bodied DIPA. Carbonation is moderate and appropriate. Finish is extremely dry.

Very one dimensional DIPA. While I can appreciate the beer, I am less than impressed by it. When you load up on this much piney and pithy bitterness there needs to be something to break things up and contrast a bit. I would reach for Dreadnaught everytime over Arctic Panzer Wolf.

22oz bomber into pint glass.

Pours a a light golden amber color with one finger head and no particulates.

Nose gives off grassy, slightly tropical hops with a slight alcohol scent.

Taste gives off strong nail polish flavors with grassy and vegetal hop notes. Sweet, honey-like malt presence.

Moderate to low carbonation with a sweet finish and extremely bitter aftertaste.

Overall an okay brew but highly present alcohol flavors and faded hop taste. Might try a fresher bottle but otherwise wouldn't seek this out.
