MrBunn (2560) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 9, 2010
On tap at Ballast Point. Pours a nice orange with aromas of sweet honey and a little bit of floral and resiny hops. Flavor is pretty sweet (the guy pouring said that when extremely fresh the hops are much more assertive and I would have loved to try it then.) As is, it’s got enough hops in it to keep it from being cloying.

BrockLanders (780) - Panama City, Florida, USA - JAN 6, 2010
Bottle from South Bay Drugs & Liquors. One of the best DIPAs on the market. Has all the bases covered....awesome hop blast to the nose, outstanding flavor....not so much due to any great balance between malt and hop, but more due to the fact that the intense hoppiness is just that good. Not thin on the palate either........quite a tasty brew.

slang (654) - Columbia, South Carolina, USA - DEC 25, 2009
growler. Pale golden w/ struggling petite white head. Nose is every single sweet citrus, all of them... at once. Mandarin orange in sweet water, under-ripe grape fruit, gardenia, and booze. Exquisite DIPA.

BeerandBlues2 (10691) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 20, 2009
Draught at Naja’s Place. Pours clear gold with an average, rocky white head, somewhat lasting with good lacing. Aroma is heavy malt (hay, straw, grain), heavy hop (earthy, pine), average yeast (sweat) with notes of pear, apricot, and peach. Full bodied, creamy start, lively carbonation, with a dry and spicy finish. Long duration, moderate sweetness, heavy acidity and bitterness.

TipsyMcStager (1139) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 4, 2009
Grapefruit and pine aroma. Pours a light orange with a nice white head. Dominating pine and grapefruit hops. Body is light. Satisfying hop finish with slight earthy tones.

DJMonarch (9163) - Northwich, Cheshire, ENGLAND - NOV 19, 2009
From the Bottle at Indulgences Etc, Denver 23/09/2009 Big pine hop aroma. Golden coloured strong in alcohol and hoppy with a crisp and bitter malt finish.

Boutip (5133) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 10, 2009
Bottle: Poured a light clear orangey color ale with a rather large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of citrus and grapefruit hops is one-dimensional but still very interesting. Taste is also dominated by grapefruit hops with loads of great floral notes and light bitter finish. Malt is present thought doesn’t play a big role in the final taste. Body is about average with good carbonation and no signs of alcohol. Well done for a West Coast IIPA.

andersand (529) - Malmö, SWEDEN - NOV 6, 2009
Hazy amber colour with a large off-white head. Aroma is typical clean piney hops over a caramell foundation. Flavour is the same, quite generous and fairly balanced with a good hoppy aftertaste. Could do better with a less pine-tree and a more juice-like hop character. In my.. Opinion..

chriso (7482) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 27, 2009
Bottle, April 2008 tasting. Dark gold colour. Powerful hops throughout - lots of pine and grapefruit. Minimal malt backup and rather astringent bitterness knock it down a notch. Still a very tasty DIPA. Certainly doesn’t stray into that sweet sticky territory that some do.

sirpsycho (393) - Murrysville, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 24, 2009
Bottle. Pours a hazy orange, creamy off-white head. Hops, caramel and sweet malt are present in the aroma. Flavor is dominated by hops and more hops, some sweet caramel and a touch of peach in the background. Finish is bitter and lingering.
