mcberko (14665) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 6, 2013
22 oz. bottle, sent from Neillago (thanks a lot man), pours a hazy golden orange with a small white head. Nose is both very hoppy and very malty, with loads of resinous hops, a little grapefruit and a whopping caramel malt backbone. Flavour matches this, with grapefruit, loads of resinous hops, some tropical fruits, and a big syrupy caramel malt. Not my preferred type of IIPA, as this is a big malty one, and not very dry and highly drinkable. At least there is no cloying sweetness despite the high malt balance. Overall, well-made and enjoyable, but not my type of IPA.

Viper666 (3271) - Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 5, 2013
Bouteille 22oz. De couleur orangée et claire. Nez de houblon résineux, citrique, fruité (agrumes sucrées, léger d’abricots) et moyennement herbeux (incluant des notes de thé et de menthe fraîche), de malt sucré, léger de caramel sucré avec des traces de pain. Ronde-moyenne en bouche avec un pétillement moyen-doux ainsi qu’une texture moyennement huileuse et résineuse. Goût amer de houblon fruité (agrumes sucrées, moyen d’abricots), citrique, légèrement herbeux (incluant un léger goût de menthe) et aux notes résineuses (une amertume présente toute la gorgée) lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute un goût de malt assez sucré avec un moyen goût de caramel ainsi que des notes de pain puis en finale l’amertume de houblon se fait assez résineuse, plus herbeuse (incluant des notes de thé) et légèrement asséchante tout en étant accompagné de notes d’alcool. Post-goût long et légèrement sec, amer de houblon résineux, herbeux, moyennement citrique et fruité (zeste d’agrumes, notes de pelures d’abricots) avec un léger résiduel de malt sucré ainsi que quelques notes d’alcool.

EricTeusink (700) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUN 3, 2013
This beer was a solo cup special in the lot prior to the Avett Brothers show in Atlanta. Kept the whole bomber for myself. Poured an orangey brown with a decent white head. Nose is grass and booze. Flavor is a tad more sweet than I expected. Overall, I preferred the Sculpin to this brew, which is odd, given my supposed fondness for IIPA. Bottle - Bowery Whole Foods Market - New York, NY

Markm2151 (280) - toledo, USA - JUN 2, 2013
Citrus hop aroma, which matches palate. However, this DIPA is unremarkable at best. Hardly deserving 99 rating

ansermadide (1526) - Kyle, Texas, USA - JUN 2, 2013
Clear, bright orange in color, this fine double IPA has a bubbly off white head. It has a fresh, spicy, almost minty hop aroma with a touch of bread. The flavor is sweet, but the herbal hops spice it up enough to give it a really attractive palate. It’s almost candy-like with a slight finish of hay. This is a classy double, dressed with a nice mouthfeel and a great body. Impressive. Delicious. Addictive.

jkwood04 (5294) - Connecticut, USA - JUN 2, 2013
22oz bottle in a tulip. Pours copper with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma of a lot of citrusy hops, some pine/resin, and a good amount of caramel/pale malts. Flavor the same. Smooth texture. A good double IPA.

HonkeyBra (4036) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - MAY 31, 2013
22 oz. bottle. Strong citrus and pine aroma with honey bread and fruit malt notes. Flavor is very aggressively bitter-- in a good way-- with strong citrus rind and pine tree notes. Some malt sweetness tends to peak through but is mostly drowned out by the bitterness. Big bodied, finishes bitter with some present alcohol in the finish. Nice, rip-roaring west coast double IPA here.

GranvilleTim (1854) - Granville, Illinois, USA - MAY 30, 2013
Orange-red hue with a light beige head. Aroma is fruity hops-sweet, inviting goodness. Taste is a well balanced taste of malt and hops. Hops are very flavorful but do not overrun the malt. I would say this beer is yummy, yummy, good for my tummy. I am glad to see more Ballast Point beers in my area. Nice lacing.

AWISLguy (2589) - Wisconsin, USA - MAY 29, 2013
Bomber from Rayans. Pours a quite clear orange with an orangey-white head leaving some drips of lace. Aroma has fresh fruit, floral hops and citrus, with caramel. Taste is of orangey/tangerine citrus, fresh fruits (mango mostly) and toffee, with a strong sweetness from the malt coming through occasionally, and a lot of resin. Sticky and bitter-dry, but sweet underneath, and nicely done. Medium to full bodied. Finishes strongly bitter, but sneaks some sweetness through. Alcohol presence muted. This is a really, really good DIPA. Definitely Sculpin’s relation. Not sure if it is "better", but it is really good.

rougeau13 (2630) - Richmond, Texas, USA - MAY 29, 2013
Bottle from Bottle Caps in Daytona Beach. Clear orange-copper with an off-white head. No lacing. Aroma of citrus, caramel, and tropical fruit. Taste is fruity and malty and less bitter than expected, but still nicely hopped. Medium bodied and slightly dry with a long bitter finish. Good IPA.
