look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A: Nice frothy white two-finger head, hazy amber/orangish color, very appealing lacing

S: Citrusy hops, touch of malts, the hops smell really good

T: Hops full of citrus, including a bit of pineapple in there, nicely balanced malts come on middle to end, good bitterness

M: Good oilyness, decent carbonation, medium bodied, finish towards the end of the beer is less than good

O: Good IIPA, a bit more on taste and mouthfeel would have made this excellent for me, will definitely try again

A- One inch dense off white head on a murky dark orange body. Good drink-by-drink step lacing and very good head retention.

S- Fresh tropical citrus fruits, oranges.

T- More with the tropical flavors, hops are the star here. Tiniest bit of alcohol taste on the backend. Leaves a bitterness in the mouth well beyond each sip.

M- Mouthfeel is creamier for the style. Medium to medium-low carbonation. It works.

D/O- Very tasty. On the higher end as far as the perceived bitterness goes, at least for me. Would enjoy again. Thanks a bunch MaxSpang.

From notes on 2/12/12

Thanks to BeRanger for this one. Bottled on: 01/12/12. Batch 091212. 12 oz. bottle poured into a snifter.

A: Hazy orange body with a half-finger of white head. Tons of lacing. This looks great.

S: Gentle hints of grapefruit and orange up front leading to a nice blend of pine and citrus. Very mild aroma.

T: A touch of sweet orange citrus that transitions to bitter piney hops. A lingering sweetness leads to a slightly dry finish. The sweet malts provide a nice backbone to this. Incredibly well-balanced.

M: Medium carbonation. Slightly oily and slick on the front end with a hint of dryness on the back end. I really love the mouthfeel of this.

O: I had honestly never heard of this beer, but what a pleasant surprise. This is a great DIPA. I would probably buy this all the time if I could. I will certainly look for other beers from Weyerbacher in the future.

A clouded amber beer, an off-white head leaving little lacing and small curtains.

Smelling of stable and horse, honey and burned plastic.

Sweet taste, raisins, brown bread, grape-fruit marmalade peel.

Little carbonation, oily and soft, a light dry finish.

Unfortunately is simcoe, especially in large amounts not at all nice in my book.

1.5 Finger head with lots of lacing on a reddish amber cloudy body. The aroma is excellent with lots of hops and citrus with a nice pine note. Very flavorful with a strong bubble gum note with lots of hops, citrus and pine. Very complex overall for what seems like a single hop IPA. I wonder if others are added as well. Medium body and moderate carbonation with a sharp finish.

Served in a tulip glass at The Cask Republic in New Haven, CT, this shows a hazy musty-brown color with a big creamy light oatmeal colored head and a wall of lacing. The aroma is a pleasant citrus hop and mild toffee. Quite reserved. The flavor brings....ahhh...thick and sweet pine hops with slight citrus edges and plenty of moxie-like malt. There’s a touch of clove-like mintiness and lots of earthy, near peaty ideas. Really nice. This stuff is near full bodied with a slick, thick feel accompanied by fine and very adequate carbonation. Love it but probably not for sessionists.
