The variety of flavors I detected surprised me. I expected the hops but this beer is way more than just your average over-hopped amber. Nice malt balance, great color, the hop presence was undeniable yet seemed perfectly balanced by this substantial brew. I enjoyed it on tap at the Ale Asylum brewery last year. Itís a couple of hours from my house but if itís on tap Iíll be there.

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.

$5 pint draft at the brewery. A hop head delight! Wow, the hops jump out in the aroma and the taste. The bitterness lingers well after it has gone down. Similar to Sierra Nevada Southern Hemisphere.

12 oz bottle from Jason A. Dark orange/brownish pour with a fluffy white head. Amazing citrus hoppy aroma. Awesome hoppy flavor with a nice malty backbone, thick chewy mouthfeel with a bitterly hoppy finish.

This blew me away. What a great beer. Hazy amber with a white head. Candy floral aroma--simple awesome. Flavor gives way to grapefruit, tangerine, orange, and didnít finish too bitter. Not a perfect palate but balanced on the palate nonetheless. I bought two bottles--weíll see if they hold up to the standard set by the tap version. Wow. (tap at Old Fashioned, Madison)

Bottle. Nice rich aroma that smells like an American Strong. Murky dark orange body with a thin off white head. Sweet but not cloyingly so. Quite frankly wonderful. Warming.

Pours a nice amberish/copper color with a medium off white head. Wonderful huge citrus/grapefruit aromas dominate the nose. Flavor is of great citrusy hops that fade into a nice light malt backing,then the nice final bitter finish.The body seems very mild for a DIPA,but makes this a very easy drinking brew. The only problem is the price is pretty steep to make this a regular in my fridge. Thanks BBL!!!!

Really dark color. Lots of resin and pine. Some sweetness but very bitter. Darker hop flavor. Reminds me a little of a DFH 90. Nice full body IPA.
