GAManiac (1944) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUL 30, 2010
12oz bottle courtesy of Frankenbrew. Pours very dark for a DIPA. Itís a translucent amber with a small thick beige head that recedes to a bubbly collar and leaves excellent lacing. The aroma is excellent with a big juicy citrus hop presence up front - oranges and grapefruits. There is some sweet caramel malts and a hint of pine resin. The taste is just as good and very well balanced. There is plenty of sweet juicy citrus with oranges taking the lead but the malts are hefty and lead to a slightly bitter, resinous finish. The mouthfeel is medium bodied and sticky with hop juice. Low, soft carbonation and sweeter on the palate than most DIPAs. This is one of the better DIPAs Iíve had lately, largely because I am a huge fan of hoppy but well-balanced DIPAs. This is no hop bomb, but it is a fantastic and drinkable beer. Highly recommended.

drpimento (2280) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 29, 2010
Big beer. But itís more like just adding a load a hops and not tuning the mix to work together. I agree with the first part of the description but not the last. Pours with a medium sized off white head and good lace. Color is a clear medium amber. Aroma is very hoppy and a little malt. Flavor is like aroma. Finish is like flavor. Just a big hoppy beer with some malt. And a little booze. I like a lot of their others much more.

Sammy (8845) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 25, 2010
Enjoyed at Pizza Plant Transit, improving bottle selection here with whatís a little off the beaten track. This one is all malts and bitterness, fortunately both are tasty and balance themselves, so decent beer for the style. Passable appearance, aroma, mouthfeel.

machfive55 (358) - Columbia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 9, 2010
Poured a clear dark amber/light brown with a two finger head. The aroma was citrus hops, mostly grapefruit. The flavor was very sweet with a low bitterness for an IPA, fairly balanced. Overall a fairly clean and low bitterness IPA, very good balance.

One of my favorite dbl IPAs and for an IPA, this feels like a malt monster to me. Definitely big hops going on but a powerful malt backing. Alcohol is definitely apparent but very much a compimenting flavor component. I get orange and grapefruit in the hop notes.

Kinz (3347) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - MAR 5, 2010
Shared with maniac and Butters for maniacís b-day. Medium amber, nice tan head. Aroma was citric hops with an earthy malt note. Flavor matched, with gummy caramel accented malts and a nicely balanced citrus and slightly herbal hop flavor. Nicely made.

Butters (3811) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - MAR 5, 2010
Shared with Kinz, and maniac for his birthday. Pours a clear reddish amber with good tan head. Nose is deceptively malty, with dark earthy hops. Flavor has a peppery note, that could be alcohol. With a ridiculous sweet, floral, big hop presence. Medium chewy body with moderately low carbonation. Sick label.

kiefdog (1826) - Tampa, Florida, USA - FEB 21, 2010
Bottle courtesy of Ughsmash. Pours a slightly hazy dark amber brown with mahogany highlights and one finger tan head. Aroma is sweet and floral with notes of citrus, hops, caramel, honey, light floral esters. Flavor is sweet and floral with notes of caramel, honey, citrus, pine, floral hops, floral esters. Generally medium body with a pleasing malty floral hop finish. This one has aged a little while, but still plenty of floral hops to go around.
