Pours murky reddish coppery with quarter of an inch thin beige head that dissipates.

Nose is a bit rough exhibiting depressed apricot-like and woodsy hops being overshadowed by
dominant ALCOHOL which is inexcusable for a brew with copious dry hopage, indicated by murky appearance. The fruity aspect of the forementioned apricot is nicely supplemented by excessive caramel malt character, though. Flavor of the medium bodied beer with hot burning alcohol taking the center stage more or less imitates the aroma . Bitterness is not overly harsh and lasts into aftertaste.

The review of this alky IIPA imitation is short as was the drinking experience interrupted only by drain pour. I understand the beer might be old with diminished hop-qualities but the obnoxious alcohol revealing poor brewing skills cannot be ignored (330 ml into tulip, no Bottling date (what else)).

A--Cloudy, unusually dark amber. Already unorthodox for the style. Will it be a good or a bad thing?

S--Fine, but blast of simcoe as one would expect is not forthcoming.

T--A sweet malt and fruit bomb. How can they call these things IPAs?

M--Malt milkshake. No thank you.

O--Should be a testament to the complexities of Simcoe. Instead it's a fruit bomb. Down the drain it went, little lamented.

A= pours a hazy deep amber color. Pushing what I would call brown. The head is minimal just a thin skin on top of the beer. No lacing is there and there isn't even much retention on the skin of a head. Somewhat dissapointing.

S= Piney hops. Not nearly as pungent as most IPAs I stick my nose into. I get a little citrus but other than a little hops there isn't much to smell from this beer.

T= The taste is different I guess. Still not impressed with this beer. Tastes hoppy sure but there is also a little bit of a glass taste to it. I would describe it as a minerally taste I guess. The hops that are highlighted aren't the best tasting hops in my opinion. Sort of old tasting. Bitter and piney but not nearly juicy and fresh enough tasting. Minerally as hell.

M= Low carbonation. really low carbonation. Slick and coating. Not bad at all I actually prefer a lower carbed IPA.

D= Not that great. Taste and smell aren't very good. Not a great beer and I'm not sure why it recieves so much praise.

2.45/5  rDev -39.8%

12oz bottle poured into tulip pint; bottled on Feb 10, 2011.

A: Pours a slightly hazy, dark amber-copper-reddish brown, with a finger of foamy off-white head, which dissipates moderately quickly leaving spotty lacing.

S: Piny, resinous west coast hops. A good deal of a musty, bready, caramel malt as well. Hints of some tropical fruit hoppy aromas too. A slight buttery aroma behind everything too, which is odd considering the freshness of this bottle.

T/M: Lots more pine, resiny hops here; the thick, syrupy mouthfeel really adds to their effect (especially for the style). Sweet, caramel, biscuity finish, accented by a lingering hop bitterness. Light carbonation and a smooth, creamy texture.

D: The weak aroma and taste on this one hurt its appeal quite a bit; a bit of alcohol being detectable as it warmed didn't really help things either. Don't think I'll be picking this one up again, especially at its $3.50/12oz or $12/4pack price point, when there are much better DIPAs out there.
