Deep gold with a creamy white head. Nice pineapple, pine resin aroma. First taste was all alcohol and sweet malt - a bit cough syrupy. Later sips were more balanced and enjoyable. long bitter sweet finish. Nice, but not my favorite DIPA.

Rosehip, papaya, and lemongrass aroma. Crystal clear amber, medium yellow head, nice lace. Papaya, grapefruit, and overripe orange. Full body, warm, resinous. Intense, but so much so that it detracts.

UXO (523) - CANADA - JAN 31, 2015
Pours clear pale amber with two fingers of rocky ivory head, excellent retention and lacing. (5/5) Nose is resiny pine, pithy citrus, tropical fruit, mild caramel malt. (8/10) Taste is moderate sweet, moderate to strong bitter. (8/10) Medium body, moderate carbonation, slightly sticky finish. (4/5) Very nice DIPA. Leads out with lots of pine and citrus, as well as some juicy tropical fruit. Malt is where it should be - providing support to the hops. And the integration of the ABV is just stellar - hard to believe this is 10%. I’ve had better, and the price is a tad high, but overall very well done. (16/20)

12oz into a flute. Pours a syrupy honey amber orange glow with nectar shades. Head is medium, disconnected, 2-3 cm, lacing is all over in thin layers leaking down. Aroma of pine, tangerine, musky soil, ripe hops, burnt orange peel. Taste of dirty pine cones, nectar, tangerines, grapefruit, old coriander, with a hoppy presence to it all. Lovely earthy feel is omitted while endulging. A bitter slap to the pallate in the aftertaste. Lingers awhile. No freshness date on bottle. Too bad. Abv is not too overbearing, drinks like an 8 or 9, but the booze monster lies within. Solid for a dipa.

Cybercat (3650) - Georgia, USA - JAN 22, 2015
Pours beautiful dark amber with a thick and fluffy pale buff head. Strong aroma is quite hoppy, resiny, with fruity hints. Bold flavor charges fierce hops across the tongue, resiny and evergreen, somewhat bitter, subtly malty and fruity, with just a whisper of honey. Texture is firm and smooth, going down well, if not too fizzy; finish is evergreen hoppy and a little fruity. Glad that I finally caught one!
