manuelMTL (240) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 27, 2014
Pour is clear golden orange with thin pale head. Aroma is grassy and earthy with some light citrus notes. A light caramel-chocolate note comes with the sweetness of the malts. Taste is resinous bitterness with light chocolate notes. Some citrussy flavors too. Good DIPA!

fishonmyplane (505) - Newington, Connecticut, USA - DEC 26, 2014
This has the expected strong resin, pine and spruce flavors, with just a little citrus (not sweet or juicy though). Well-balanced by bready, toasty malts. Drinkable for a very high IBU brew. It’s good, but hard to distinguish from other good DIPA’s. In fairness, my bottle was ~6 months old, so a fresh bottle might be even better.

TET (2489) - Kaarina, FINLAND - JAN 23, 2015
A light yellow, slightly orange coloured beer with a quite big and blond head. The nose has peaches, grapefruits, citrusfruits and some pine needles, slightly caramelly malts, hint of flowers, not totally fresh. Taste has storng caramel malts, not too sweet due to bitterness, grapefruits, some pine. Warming alcohol and hint of that is also noticed in the taste. Medium+ bodied, balanced to drink. This is good beer but still "wow" feeling is missing.

jc1762 (566) - Washington DC, USA - JAN 24, 2015
Poured into a teku glass with a practically opaque dark honey brown with a clean but cloudy white heads. Bottled in May so I’ve had this for over 7 months before opening. The nose shows very subtle but clean and refreshing tropical-fruits. Caramel malts seem to center stage here. Probably not so if fresh. The palate is medium bodied showing the same subtle but clean & refreshing tropical fruit juiciness with moderate carbonation. A very strong malt backbone supports the beer with the distinct IPA bitterness at the end. Probably would be amazing if poured fresh but still very good.
