12oz to snifter. Very clear rosy-bronze pour with a finger of head. Super piney, herbal, floral nose with a resiny blood-orange/grapefruit undertone. Flavor is explosive pine resin, biting grapefruit rind, big malt presence as well. Colossally-flavored, sticky, verdant, not for the fragile palette.

danlo (1688) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - JUL 28, 2015
355ml bottle from Brewdog online store. Orange golden amber colour, white foamy head and aroma of tropical fruit mango & juicy citrus hops. Taste is sweetish, malt caramel balanced with mango, hoppy resins, citrus grapefruit & pine bitterness. Oily mouthfeel, medium bodied, soft carbonation, dry lingering earthy grassy bitter finish. Very drinkable.

355ml Bottle from BottleDog, London (£4.50):
Outstanding stuff from Ballast Point, itís a shame their beers are so hard to find here. This one tasted exactly like a DIPA should with lots of tropical fruits, resinous pine & bitterness plus plenty sweetness. The beer had a great balance & as such I didnít really notice the 10% save for some touches of alcohol here & there. Surprisingly easy to drink with a real juicy feel to it; definitely be on the look out to try again soon.

Fantastic DIPA. The dorado hops balance out the alcohol content extremely well and makes this high ABV an easy drinker.

Edward104 (41) - Herrin, Illinois, USA - JUL 23, 2015
Strong nose of grapefruit and hops. Head laces the glass. Mouthfeel isnít too carbonated. Taste of grapefruit and hops balanced with a sweetness, like grapefruit juice or grapefruit tempered with brown sugar.

radio_nowhere (1213) - Maryland, USA - JUL 21, 2015
Bottle into tulip glass, fairly clear orangy-light copper color with white lacing. Aroma notes of strong floral/citrus hops, some tropical fruits, tad grass and caramel malt sweetness. Taste adds fruit jelly, potpourri-like floral spice, resin, grapefruit, mango and light earthy bitterness. Heavy-medium body, low-moderate carbonation, dry, sticky, rich with lingering citrus/pine finish. Interesting beast, crazy well balanced with a neat fruity jelly thing happening in the flavor.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5591) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 20, 2015
UPDATED: JUL 27, 2015 Sampled on draft at 3R6P this beer poured a dark orange color with a medium sized foamy orange-white head that left great lacing. The aroma was bitey and bitter with perfume, floral hops and pine. The flavor was boozy, bitter and bity with floral and perfumey hops. Very long finish. Meh.

Pours very clear, orange colored, typical look. Aroma is heavy and dank, pine, citrus all the suspects. Taste is tropical at first, piney resin comes after that, fairly bitter aftertaste, dry. The alcohol is insanely well masked for the strength and style, drink like a 6%. Bottle from Bier-deluxe.

Very nice beer. Very floral. Almost Lynx like? Odd... Makes me feel like a solvent abuser. Nice though!!
