Hazy orange pour with a creamy off white head which quickly dissipated. The aroma is sweet peach and barley with hint of orange. The flavor is barley, citrus, bitter grape fruit in finish. Full bodied yet highly drinkable.

Bottle. Hazy orange pour with a creamy off white head. The aroma is sweet peach, caramel and barley. Some pine and citrus. The flavour is barley, citrus, bitter grape fruit and sweet malt. Like a hoppy barley wine. Full bodied. Very nice.

The Dan Journal #363. Tasted 6/28/10. 22oz bomber. Hazy with a golden hue. Brainy off-white head. Aromas of honey, hops and toast. Undertones of tart berries. Slight burn in the nose. Full bodied with a sticky palate. Decent alcohol note. A lot of melon and berry flavors in this one. Followed by a lot of grapefruit bitterness. This is a big beer! Definitely an Imperial. Smooth sipper. Very nice!

koopa (338) - , New Jersey, USA - MAY 23, 2010
Appearance: golden orange translucent body with a 1 finger white crown that shows some retention and lacing. Attractive! Smell: Oh baby can you say citrus hop bomb? Loads of grapefruit and a touch of lemon. Taste: The only thing holding this brew back from scoring higher is an abundance of grapefruit flavor which means there is also a fair share of bitterness. The bitterness helps mask the abv and decreases as the brew warms. Not much of a malt profile here....this is strictly a grapefruit hop bomb. Dare I say Pliny-esque? One dimensional yes, but great at that dimension! Mouthfeel: Medium bodied and a hint of stickyness but with ample carbonation makes this one great! Drinkability: The high abv is a set back in this department. Great DIPA! Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 08-08-2009

Tap @ RnH - pours orange, arouma is citrusy and crispy malts. floral, pine and tangy notes. medium bodied and high (excessive?) carbonation. Tasty though, and the alcohol is well hidden.

Leighton (13818) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 22, 2010
Tap at Rattle and Hum. Pours glowing orange-gold with a decent, fluffy white head. Big citrus aroma of pineapple, grapefruit and orange, and strong notes of caramel malts. The flavor is potent but extremely well-balanced, making it an easy drink. Lots more citrus and heavy bitterness, but the massive malt backbone evens things out. Very sweet from start to finish, with a lingering citrus, very mild pine, and plenty of sugar. Medium bodied, average carbonation. So great.

TeamTrappist (830) - jericho, New York, USA - APR 21, 2010
Tap at Rattle n Hum. Poured an unclear amber. Nose is big fruity piny hops that say look out here we come. And come they do. This is very well carbonated so it along with the great taste it’s almost too easy to drink. Very dry and not fruity. It’s bitter in the middle and in the end an leaves you thirsty which is great until your glass is empty.

Pwn3d (1962) - Manhattan, New York, USA - APR 21, 2010
On tap at Rattle n Hum during the Ballast Point event on 4/20/10. Poured into an uber Delirium glass.... hazy orange. Taste is largely citrus... tangerines, grapefruit. ABV is well hidden. A monster brew, full of flavor but not burning with bitterness or alcohol... just delicious. Better than most IIPAs. Near world class.

Damico (2857) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 7, 2010
The aroma is awesome, sweet hops with fruit and citrus notes. The orange cloudy color has a decent creamy head. The flavors of citrus, hops, and crisp ale blend together smoothly on the palate.
