UPDATED: JUN 23, 2013 Date: October 22, 2011 Mode: Bottle Source: Darkness Day. Full description not available as I sampled way too many beers during Darkness Day! Had again at Bryce’s on June 23, 2013. Nicely balanced piney and grapefruit bitterness. No change to ratings.

Hazy burnt orange pour, white head. The aroma you can smell from 5 feet away! Tons of grapefuit peel, some sticky caramel, light grassy notes. Flavor is loaded with citrus peel, grass, citrus, caramel, and goddamn this shit is badass. Thanks gn0sis!

16 oz can courtesy of Kan. Thanks, buddy! Taken home and enjoyed on a nice Thursday evening. Pours a golwing dulled golden orange hue, a healthy haze throughout with a decent sized frothy whitish head that dies to a decent layer, laces ok. Aromas are a vibrant in-your-face hopping of lemon and grapefruit bombarding the senses. Florals, grass, oranges, tropical fruit. A melange moving into some touches of pale malts, but this ends abruptly, with an assault of hops on the nose. Grapefruit bomb, essentially, with a lot of supporting flavors. Initial is lighter end of medium bodied offering a powerful hop feel up front. Lots of grapefruit and lemon meet florals and grass, a strong bitterness rolls into a middle that gets a bit sweeter. Touches of gumball, tropical fruit, and some cotton candy. Pale malts, moving back into fruit. Finish is a moderate bitterness, preaching some good citrus and florals, earthy hops. Overall aroma is knock you down, finish is solid, middle shows a bit of sweetness. If this could dry up more overall, it would be a world beater. Farther in, as the palate adjusts to that sweetness, it does really move towards the front of the pack, remaining a grapefruit bomb with lots of hop flavor. Could use a touch more bitterness for me, but it’s very well done, perhaps a touch sweet, but the insane amount of hops and flavor from them really sets the pace. Quality.

Can shared during the 2011 BA South Jersey gathering. Poured a hazy orange body with a smaller bubbly off white head. Aroma was very similar to Ephraim, loads of citrus lots of tangerine and grapefruit hint of cat piss and pine. The body on this is perfect, medium to fuller with with perfect carbonation and a long lingering fiinish. Flavor is awesome with tons going on, citrus rind, tropical fruits, mango, tangerine, grainy bread and crusts with yeast. This is awesome, I need to move to VT.

Pours copper with a 2 finger white head. Big aroma of grapefruit and pine. Flavor is WONDERFUL sweet orange along with a huge hop load floating along on a slick well carbonated body. I want more of this soon.

nightrider (754) - encinitas, California, USA - OCT 23, 2011
Can courtesy of baconsausage. Thanks Tucker. Hazy golden orange with a moderate amount of white head.Aroma. ..Wow; fruit filled with lemon, grapefruit, orange., and a bit of hop ganja. Mouthfeel is full and slippery with hop resinous qualities. lavors follow suit with the tropical fruit and then a big blast of dank hop bitterness and bite. The lasting finish is long, hoppy and balanced. Alcohol very well in the back. Loved this bitter bomb.

Can via the other site, thanks Zane. Pours a golden orange with frothy white head. Aroma is pine, resin and some citrus. Taste is bitter with a nice tiny malt finish but doesn’t have a lot of fruit in the flavor. No real fruit coming out here. Overall, a great DIPA but was hoping for more via the hype. Solid.
