    Aroma: 8 | Appearance: 6 | Mouthfeel: 6 | Flavor: 7 | Overall: 7

    Pours with a slighlty cloudy, orange body topped by an off-white, medium thick head with a good amount of lacing. It’s sweet and malty with a grapefruity hop note in the finish, as well as, some flowery notes and a little bitterness. Full bodied, warming, a bit dry and tingly on the tongue.

    Sampled June 2007
    This is deceptively carbonated; poured carefully at first it seems to not produce much of a head, but then quickly starts to blossom to a four-finger thickness. The head is a light tan color and sits atop a very hazy, orangish-amber colored brew. The aroma smells of orange zest, slightly cheesy hops and dusty malt. Touches of pine and perhaps a hint of menthol round out the hop aromatics. The hop-citrus notes also take on notes of tangerine and orange juice. The hop aromatics are quit a bit more muted than I was expecting, in fact the whole aroma is a touch more muted that I expected.

    Sweet, and quite hefty, this beer has a thick enough body to be a Barleywine. There is an unfortunate, overly harsh note in the finish that is both astringent and phenolic like to the point of heavy plastic. In fact this reminds me specifically of an unpleasant flavor that I just can’t quite place; perhaps it is something medicinal. Whatever it is, it might just be some interplay between the hops and alcohol, but it might also be something off. Otherwise the hop character is quite citrus like; notes of orange zest, grapefruit, tangelo and lychee are all quite noticeable.

    Wait, I almost have it, that harsh flavor, is very reminiscent to the aftertaste in a cheap tequila. How did they get that flavor in this brew. If it wasn’t for that off taste, this might actually be pretty tasty. It is way too thick to be a Double IPA, but that is just a personal opinion on style.

    NorCal tasting July 07 - This was an abomination. I'm really suprised at how awful this crap was, because the products I've had from Weyerbacher have been gernally tasty. But this beer deserves no mercy. For me, it was a train wrech. An aroma of dog collar, slight smoke and citrus fruit. Appearance was a medium amber in color with a smallish white head. Mouthfeel was stinging. Flavor was overly sweet, earthy hops with a ton of alchol. It reminded me like someone dumped a bunch of booze in the beer as it sat awaiting to be bottled. How anyone could drink all of a 22oz bottle is hard to conceive. This was from a 12 hoz bottle and it was horrible enough.

    Beer pours a dark, murky brown with caramel tones. Huge head and outstanding lacing. Really strong hoppiness dominates the aroma. Flavor starts with tons of sweet malts, vanilla, then a strong smokiness and a bitter hop finish. Overly bubbly mouthfeel and the bitterness hangs on my tongue when the beer is gone. A "big beer" in every respect, a true experience. Solid.

    Cloudy, orange-amber pour with a full off-white head and lacing throughout the entire glass. Citrus aroma. Creamyyyyyyyy mouthfeel, so satisfying! Sweet flavor of floral hops, with its high ABV well-covered. Fine finish. Only 22 boggles left here.... won't have another for a month or so, but YUM, a great IPA!

    Bottle courtesy of Hopdog: Poured a cloudy light brown color ale with a big foamy head with good retention. Aroma of hops is quite easily noticeable but as well there is a good malt backbone as well as something sweet (honey?). Taste is a well balance mix between some medium bitter hops without any citrus profile and some sweet malt. Body is quite full and alcohol is well hidden. This is very well done and I appreciate the initiative to brew a IIPA without big citrus hops as I believe it has been done quite a few time before.

    A dark orange to amber appearance. A perfume filled aroma mixed in with some grapefruits and oranges. This one is quite sweet with a decent alcohol burn on the tounge. Primarly oranges and grapefruit flavors show. Overall ok in small quanities but certainly not a session beer.

    A clear copper with a decent head. The intense hops come through a bit like a dirty dish rag up front, and burn the stomach lining in the finish, so if you’re wanting some intensely hopped beer, this is right up your alley. A bit harsh for my tastes though. Tons of citrus fruit and pith.

    Poured an orange color with a massive head which lasted well and solid lacing. Aroma was a good blend of malts and hops, some nuttyness to it as well. Flavor was of pine citrus some caramel strong alcohol. Solid beer.

    Weyerbacher is climbing respectability with me on these last few brews. This one poured with an explosive head, deceptively making you think it was under control, yet overflowing a glass that is poured within reach of the brim. Excellent head retention and lacing, as well. Orange body. Aroma was malty and definitely hoppy. Flavor was strong hops, some citrus, some resinous. The malt backbone was full of orange rinds and apricots. The mouthfeel was full and highly carbonated, to help this one finish bitter and a bit dry. A nice concoction.
