joet (2512) - Santa Rosa, California, USA - OCT 7, 2013
Pours a cloudy golden with an orange hue, white fine foam. Very full hop aroma with a flowing combination of grapefruit, resinous pine dominant with tropical fruit accompaniment. Mouthfeel is lightly creamy, slightly tacky with a bit of oiliness at the edges. Finish is slightly sweet, bits of pepper, light astringency and some bitterness. Overall a very nice beer. Especially appreciated the full aroma however the mouthfeel and heft seem to detract slightly from the wonderful hop experience.

Opened the can and the aroma was incredibly inviting. Refreshing floral, citrus, and a trace of resin. First sip hits the palate and it is a medium body, with a creamy, slightly oily texture, average carbonation. The taste is right on the button for an IPA that isnít consumed as a dare (there are many more beers whose bitterness will beat you into submission, this one however is easy to drink without the abuse) Tastes are similar to the aroma, but i assume the yeast provides the interesting but subtle limestone flavor and is absolutely welcome to this party. There is no disappointment here. The finish on this gem canít be mentioned enough... UNBELIEVABLY long finish with wave after wave of citrus hops bombing away at you. Not overly bitter but there is a distinct resiny lingering bitterness which is right on the money. Overall great beer which is 100% true to itís style.

From can @ Borefts 2013, thanks to BRW. Grassy, citric slightly herbal aroma. Pineapple, grapefruit, lemon, oily grassy hops. Very well balanced, very good. Lives up to its reputation.

Can pour...duh...ha, ha, a few months back. HT is a hyped beer that lives up to all the hype. Although not my favorite DIPA, itís definetly awesome. I really enjoyed the floral aromas and the grapefruit, citrus notes were perfect.

Pours a deep orange almost amber or brown with a frothy off white two finger head leaving supreme lacing down the glass. Smells of pineapple, tropical fruits and a little bit of caramel. Everything about this beer is fantastic so far. Strong citrus flavors hit at the front of the tongue balanced out in the middle with some caramel malt. Finishes with a light piney resin bitterness. A little bit sappy and good carbonation levels. Fantastic beer. Not the very best of the style Iíve had, but right up there.

Garlic_of_Doom (623) - SWEDEN - OCT 2, 2013
Can from oregonskibum, thanks a lot for this one! Hazy yellow with a small head that doesnít retain. Lots of citrus, ripe mango and pine/resin to the aroma, some candylike sweetness as well. Taste has a lot of grapefruit bitterness but not as heavy and biting as usually in DIPA, (a nice change for once), resin, nice dryness and slight alcohol heat at the end. Really well balanced for the style. Dry after taste that leaves you wanting more to freshen up.

16 oz can generously given to me as a bonus in a trade with BrewJay. The pour is a hazy murky orange golden with a one inch off white head that falls noisily and quickly. The aroma is fresh citrus pineapple mango, along with a bit of fruit stripe gum. Some resin is present in the back. The taste is the fresh and bright pineapple mango tropical citrus fruit of the nose along with some sharp bitterness, along with resin, earth and some warming alcohol. The palate is medium bodied with active carbonation and the bitter alcohol sweet ending. Solid double IPA, thanks Jay.
