JStax (4581) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - APR 5, 2013
Poured from a 22 ounce bottle. Pours a translucent copper with a thin, soapy head of foam. Aroma is fruity, grassy, and citrusy. A little saltine cracker comes through on the backend as well. Taste is initially bitter, but that gives way to an assertive alcoholic burn and sweetness. You can definitely tell this is a high alcohol beer. Canít say this is something I would want often. Smells great, but just doesnít deliver in the taste.

jbruner (3780) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - APR 3, 2013
Pours a clear golden brown with thin bubbly white head and light lacing. Aroma of west coast hops, piney earthy citrus. Taste follows but there is a nice caramel malt back. A nice bitter finish that lasts for quite a while. Very nice DIPA, glad it has come to the southeast coast.

umich03jm (3299) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - APR 3, 2013
Fresh 2013 bomber. Pours an ultra clear golden orange color with a very small fizzy head that quickly fades. Decent aroma of apricot, orange, and pine hops. Not as fresh or dank as I expected. Taste has very little sweetness and a strong bitterness. Packed with dry, bitter pine hops and a decent malty backbone. Bitter and piney finish. Medium body and slightly oily mouthfeel. I donít really understand the high ratings here on this one. Mediocre DIPA in my opinion.

rbrazell (1698) - Florida, USA - APR 2, 2013
Clear deep golden pour with a thick frothy white head. Fairly one dimensional aroma of crystal malts, resinous and dank hops. Initially sweet entry quickly turning into strong bitter hops with plastic and warm booze. Definitely not what I was expecting.

MacBoost (1708) - Penfield, New York, USA - APR 2, 2013
Pours a clear orange with a white head. Massive citrus aromas along with a clobbering of pine. Really deep and bright aroma. First sip reveals a massive hop bite... bitter lemon rind, grapefruit. Bracingly bitter. Oranges. Very impressed. The finish is long, dry and bitter.

HighWine (959) - Whalezbro, Illinois, USA - APR 1, 2013
Honey colored pour, moderate lacing. Apricot nose. Taste is hoppy resin, apricot, and mango. Medium mouthfeel. Much lighter drinking than it should be at 10% ABV. Clean.

bigirishphan (106) - Peoria Heights, Illinois, USA - MAR 31, 2013
Poured from bomber. Didn't expect the clarity to be this high. Only had a pine and a hop nose to me. Sweet citrus hop mouthy feel that left a resin taste at the end. Cool beer. Searching for this on tap... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

b3shine (7738) - Indiana, USA - MAR 31, 2013
650 ml bottle to snifter (shared with the Mrs.). Bottle lists the abv as 10%. looks good; a transparent orange with white lacing. Smells and tastes solid; sweet and hoppy. Nice and lit on the palate for a 10% beer. Enjoyable, but not as good as Sculpin.

skmikeg (1647) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 30, 2013
On tap at old grove. Pours a bright light orange with a small off white head. Aroma is of citrus, pine, tropical fruits, and sweet malts. Taste is of citrus peels (a lot of orange) pine resin, tropical fruits, sweet malts, and a little alchool. Has a medium body with a creamy mouthfeel and a dry, pretty bitter, crisp finish. Overall, a tasty dry hopped version of Dorado.

Pours a clear golden orange with a foamy off white head with some nice looking bubbles. Aroma is of grapefruit, orange, pine, tropical fruits, some sweet malts, and some caramel malts. Taste is of intense citrus (grapefruit, tangerine, and orange), pine resin, tropical fruits (pineapple and mango, sweet malts, and some nice caramel malts. Has a medium-full body with a super creamy, oily mouthfeel and a semi dry, long, bitter finish. overall, a tasty DIPA that hides its ABV very well and it surprisingly drinkable.

MattSweatshirt (9) - - MAR 28, 2013 does not count
Enjoy by 2/11/14 Pours a orange body(sick clarity) with a nice two finger white head. Looking good for an IPA. Lots of hoppy goodness going on in the aroma. Sweet orange, grapefruit, pine, floral, and lime. There is a touch of malt peeking through with bread and caramel. Big olí bitter grapefruit juice flavor. Lime, pine, caramel sweetness, and some alcohol that hides fairly well but takes its toll towards the end of the bomber. 4 The mouthfeel seems bigger than most big IPAís. Drinks smooth with a medium-low amount of carbonation. This big beer is a surprisingly easy drinker. There are good aromas and flavors but it just doesnít pop like such a huge beer should. It is still pretty awesome.
