3.78/5  rDev -3.6%

Edited review. It appears that the first bottle I consumed was somehow infected or skunk... i.e., not the norm, so I increased the taste ranking (from a 2.5 to a 3.5). Still not highly recommended, but not unpleasant either.

12 oz bottled poured into an IPA glass. Drink by date of 2/24/14. Consumed on 9/11/13.

A - Amber with a slight purple hue. Noticeable carbonation. No head. Slight foam around edges of glass and center from carbonation. Clear/no cloudiness. No lacing as beer recedes.

S - Wow. Very fragrant. Apricot and mango, with a slight hint of alcohol.

T - Deleted. See comments above.

M - Clean and crisp. Good levels of carbonation.

O - Deleted. See comments above.

Poured into a goblet slightly hazed menacing looking burnt orange,it just looked like one of them big ballsy brash hop bombs.Aromas of pithy grapefruit and leafy/floral hops with a sweet caramel and alcohol base.I found the flavors to be not as sweet and boozy as I thought they would be but the hops are big and brash with citric and leafy flavors coming in waves over the carame/biscuit base,the alcohol is there but it didn't hit me over the head.A really nice big hopped "triple" IPA as GF calls it,I liked it alot.

4.14/5  rDev +5.6%

A: An amber beer with good clarity that produces a good head stand when poured. The persistent head is is made of off-white bubbles of compact foam that leave some fine lacing on the glass.

S: A medium-strong hops aroma that is very herbal and tropical fruit with some citrus. Mostly a pineapple and mango sort of hops. There is a light malt sweetness and a hint of alcohol sweetness.

T: An aggressive yet smooth hops bitterness with a strong tropical fruit and citrus hops flavor over a medium malt sweetness. The malt has a slight caramel character and a touch of biscuit. The hops have a strong pineapple and mango flavor. There is a light touch of spice that seems slightly hops and yeast derived at the same time. A long, citrusy bitter aftertaste that remains smooth. The high abv becomes apparent towards the medium-dry finish with a little warmth and some sweetness.

M: A medium-full bodied beer with a medium-strong level of carbonation. A moderate alcohol warmth.

O: An impressive beer that shows off the tropical fruit character of the New Zealand hops and despite being ridiculously bitter is very smooth.

Finally found this in the Bay Area and I must say, while it's good, it's not great.
Not sure when it was bottled but best by date is early year.
Looks great! Perfect golden hue and thick foamy head...but not much else.
Not the flavor profile I was hoping for.
Aroma not what I was hoping for.
Mouthfeel is meh...good but not great.
All in all, it's good, but PLEASE give me Palete Wrecker stat!!!!

Bomber into 8 oz Tulip
A- Looks like a high ABV IPA Gold with disappearing white head
S- The hops and alcohol do battle with each other, to the drinkers benefit. Hops...then booze. Smells delicious. Sweet syrupy malty backbone
T- A very well balanced big IPA is the first thing that comes to my mind. The hops are still the star, but supported by the malty sweetness.
M- Practically perfect size/carb level. Lets you thoroughly taste the beer but doesn't let it stick to your palate
O- This is a great beer.I too often find big IPAs much too syrupy and sweet. That is not the case with this one. I really enjoy it, will suggest it to friends and will most definitely buy it again...like tomorrow

In a tulip this beer was a hazy orange color. There was a small white head that left a bit of lace.

Citrus and pine aroma, some sweet malt. Not as aromatic as I expected.

Grapefruit and pine in the taste. Caramel. Again, not quite as flavorful as I expected.

Hoppy and sweet.

Nice enough beer, but there are better ones out there.

Pale orange-yellow with light colored head that dissipated quickly. Aroma is quite tropical, light malt sweetness and some pine as well. Taste is super damn bitter, the hop comes more pine than citrus. Good carbonation and body, but overall not a great brew in my opinion.

4.1/5  rDev +4.6%

12 ounce bottle, best by 2/28/14 etched onto the neck of the bottle.

Pours lighter amber, near clear, minor head, film, thin collar and again minor bits of lacing.

Pungent tea leaf hoppy nose with fruits, mint and some lime/boozeness

Full throttle DIPA, big and ballsy, more citric fruit and hop bite with lots more lime, honey and soft but quite present grapefruit. Rich, and velvet smooth on the tongue. Nicely done. If ya like a high quality DIPA (and dont we all?) this one is well worth a try
