jasonp (1555) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - AUG 9, 2008
Sampled at Ballast Point, RBSG ’08. Somewhat of a cloudy copper with a white head. Orange juice-laced Pac NW citrusy hop nose! Pretty sweet, there’s a solid amount of residual sugars in here to balance the bitterness, which is ample. Very citrusy hop flavor - grapefruit/orange. Full, round and creamy on the palate with moderate carbonation. Good stuff.

NosirIwont (2000) - Aalborg Vestby, DENMARK - AUG 4, 2008
Bottle. Pours a beautiful, hazy, deep orange-amber with a big, creamy off-white/yellowish head. The head soon sinks, but leaves a fine lacing all the way down the glass. The aroma is dry hops with a faint hint of liquorice. As it warms, notes of pine escapes the hops and a wooden maltiness appears. In the vicinity of the glass there’re remote whiffs of port. The moment the beer enters the mouth, the flavour is sweet and fruity in just a split second, but lurking behind it there’s a mean hop bitterness waiting to strike – in a sudden instant it’s there, overtaking the flavour, filling the mouth, almost paralyzing the taste buds to anything but itself. When the taste recovers, notes of pine and strong, but well-balanced alcohol is found. The moment it’s sunk, the bitterness turns to liquorice in a slightly astringent finish that also reveals notes of plums and apple well hidden behind the bitterness. Palate is thick, bordering oily, and almost laces the mouth. A great beer. 05-08-08.

chrisafari (100) - Orange, California, USA - JUL 18, 2008
Bottle from Vendome Liquor, Yorba Linda. Pours deep amber orange with fluffy off-white head. Sweet floral/hoppy aroma. Flavor begins with hints of ginger, roasted nuts and citrus. Finishes with a smooth touch of roasted malt and a bang of hops and alcohol. The flavor of DDIPA is really unique, nothing like I’ve ever had in an Double IPA. Very good!!

kyzr (1153) - Belgrade, Montana, USA - JUL 17, 2008
Bottle thanks to BMan1113VR. Thick creamy orange with a good sized head. Big hoppy citrus nose. Flavor with hops to spare yet a good amount of malt to soften the blow. Creamy texture with a good amount of alcohol to give the stomach something to think about. Very nice from start to finish.
