Pour is a burnt orange with an off white head. Little bit of mango and hop bitterness on the nose, peach, an almost spicy character too, and a nice bready malt character. Taste is somewhat bitter, lots of tropical fruit, quite sweet, with a nice bit of malt, and there’s a grassy spiciness to it as well. Medium bodied, good beer although I’d think they could do better given they brew one of the best IPA’s out there.

Sregnar35 (1030) - Rotterdam, New York, USA - MAY 19, 2013
Pours light amber with a great lacing head. Aroma is grapefruit sweet. Flavor is very deep layered sweet hops, fruity not grassy. Alcohol cuts through the malt in a nice finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from 5K backlog. Pours cloudy orange with white head. Nose and taste of perfume, caramel malt, bitter orange peel, resin and cologne. Light alcohol in the finish. Tons of malt. A bit too perfumy for me. Medium body.

Draft at Bukowski’s Tavern in Cambridge, MA. Rich, smooth, balanced. Good forward hops, citrus and juicy but not over the top. Tasty.

ryecatcher (1347) - Bridgeport, Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 15, 2013
Bomber. Pours a slightly hazy orangey-amber with a thin white head, good lacing. Nose is pineapple, malts and some alcohol. Mouth is medium bodied, citrus (grapefruit) hoppiness and bittersweet up front, which rides a malty backbone through to a looonggg bitter finish. Not too complex, but a decent DIPA all the same.

zizzybalubba (1792) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - MAY 15, 2013
22 oz. bottle from Bruisin’ Ales, Asheville, NC (enjoy by August 9, 2013). Pours dark orange with a frothy off-white head. Aroma of clean pine, grapefruit rind, and pineapple. Great bitter hop flavor of grapefruit, grass, mango, pine needles, and pineapple. Just the right amount of malt to not so much balance but rather to tone down the hop assertiveness. Outstanding, of course. (Replaces an earlier review from Logan’s pre-GABF party, 2009, Denver, CO. Same score from the earlier review).

Tap. Orangish pour with a white head. Nose is grassy, pine and straw. Flavor is pine, straw, floral hops. Bitter finish and west coast dry.
