Bomber to oversized snifter (shared with the Mrs.; thanks stawn). Looks good; a fairly transparent orange with off-white lacing. Smells and tastes GOOD! Citrus hops with a nicely balanced sweet but light malty backbone. Good stuff!

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: pour hazy orange with off white milky head. Nose is pungent orange and grapefruit, bread malts, oak and resin. Heavier on the palate with tropical fruits, pine resin, vanilla, oak and sweet malts that were a bit over powering from the dry hopping twice. A bit much for my liking. Slightly syrupy and simply too sweet for a session. Good, not elite. Pure Hoppiness was superior for sure.

Beautiful, beautiful beer in every way. Delicate hop aroma, but unbelievably pretty, this might be the perfect ipa.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle pours dark yellow with thin white head. Aroma heavy floral and citrus. Taste initially candy sweet and malty, almost barleywine, replaced by orange/citrus and hops. Finish surprisingly gentle with slight hops and prolonged mild bitterness. Thick near-syrupy palate. Alcohol well hidden.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Aroma that reminds me of weed, oak, and a little smooth citrus across the palate. Taste is a little sweet but, of course, mostly bitter the whole way through. Overall its a good IPA but does not really stand out as something special.

From a 22 oz bottle shared at home. Aroma of spruce. Flavors of pine resin, with hints of grapefruit zest and a bit of caramel sweetness. Nice.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazy golden orange pour. Aroma is a huge amount of hops. Soo much hops you almost dont even notice all the hops, slight tea aroma from the bitter aroma. Taste is spicy hops but quickly fades to a smooth finish. Reminds me of dogfish 120. My complaint is that it is amazingly too smooth. Completely dissapears.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle is 5 days old. Hops explode from the glass, drenching my senses in floral, fruity bliss. Tons and tons of hops, fortunately balanced by an equally strong malt backbone. Caramelized booze presence in the middle akin to a barleywine.
A shining example of creativity in DIPA brewing.

4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Pours a hazy orange with a medium off white head...lt sediment throughout...great lacing and retention. Aroma has loads of fresh grassiness and some floral citrus...wonderully aromatic. Flavor follows suit...grassy with orange, melon, and a touch of mild pine...sweet hoppy goodness without all that sweet maltiness...great bitterness creeps in...awesome. mouthfeel is medium and silky with a piney/earthy bitter dry finish hinting at more grassy/melon notes. Wow.
