VinegarStroke (320) - Napa, California, USA - MAR 13, 2015
Bottle: very light haze, straw with a little copper. Medium head but great lace. The nose on this is awesome. There ’s a load of hops but that’s balanced buy some massive malt. Citrus caramel, fruit, tropical and intense. Far more malt than you would usually see on a West Coast Double IPA. Dry, opposite of sour but very bitter. Massive flavor and texture as well as being as bitter as your mother n law. Almost has an English note to it. Freshness is great for the level of hops and alcohols.

FROMTHEBOTTLE (26) - Ontario, CANADA - MAR 13, 2015
12oz bottle Looks like a jar of honey. Golden hue, thin head, Pour shows some density that is evident in the pine resin. citrus and over abundance of hops. All that hops is well balanced leading to a pleasant, lingering bitterness on the pallet. 10%abv is noticable.

Bright copper color and fruity IPA flavor. The 10% alcohol content is quickly evident from the flavor and effect.

Fredd_an (168) - Borlänge, SWEDEN - MAR 7, 2015
Lätt vitt huve som sjunker ner som en krona direkt. Ljuvlig doft sv amerikansk humle. Typisk västkust. Bra sting som en dipa ska va! Gran barr smått kådigt & humle skog som lägger sig som en ränns på tungans eftersmak. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

dinkle50 (1075) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 7, 2015
Clear golden pour with a single finger head. Aroma of citrus and a little pith. Some grass. Medium to full mouth. Big time bitterness. Great citrus components. Dry finish. There is an alcohol bite here. Lots of dry pine and a little sweetness. This just socks you in the face with hops.

maekchu (2556) - Hirakata, JAPAN - MAR 5, 2015
Bottle. Caramel, very toasty, dank hop nose. Bright, glowing amber/orange color, thin head. Thick caramel backbone, deep and rich resinous hopping, a touch of hop burn in late mid palate, and alcohol is fairly apparent. Medium-heavy body. A big one, for sure. Getting pretty high in alcohol for a DIPA. Very tasty stuff.

From the tap came a lovely golden brew with a white head. Full bodied . Very hoppy with flavors of sour,hops, and malt. Very citrusy.
