dyetube (1374) - Hurst, Texas, USA - OCT 28, 2012
Bottle from Choice Beverages in McKinney, TX. Pours a light copper color with a medium white head leaving some good lacing down the sides. The aromas are citrus, grass, pine, bread. The mouthfeel is dry and bitter with a medium body and good carbonation. Good citrus/pine flavor with an excellent malt backbone and not overly done, this is a well made IIPA! Cheers!

Wonderful choice of hops. Nice and sticky. The malt is very mellow and sits nicely behind the malt. All the normal hop flavors are in there full strength and a bit of a few less common fruit/flower flavors aromas. A bit thick w/ a bit too much alcohol on the flavor. A great hop bomb with some great elements and a few flaws.

EricE (1367) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 27, 2012
Pours orange brown with a thin tan head. This one is quite rough. Aroma is malty with caramel notes. Flavor is sweet and malty with a bit of a whisky note. Lots of alcohol and bitterness on the finish. Not very enjoyable.

RedSox2004 (1640) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - OCT 20, 2012
Cask at The Daily Pint. Clear amber/orange with a generous two finger frothy head and excellent lace and retention. Strong citrus aroma hits hard with grapefruit, orange peel and a hint of lime. Extremely sharp, palate cleansing hop bitterness leads the way, heavy on the aforementioned citrus, with a touch of doughy bread peeking through the mayhem. Medium body, sticky mouthfeel, lively carbonation, and a crisp clean finish.

lusikka (7681) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 18, 2012
650 ml bottle. Rated on 17.10.2012.
Pours a deep copper amber colour with a white head. Aroma is very intense with citrusy hops and floral notes. Flavour of strong citrusy hops, pine, mild caramel, resin, grapefruit and quite strong malty body. Medium bodied, oily mouthfeel and a warming, lingering bitter finish. Hoppy alcohol fumes that spread in your mouth after a while. Just the way I like it.

Bomber. Hazy orange that looks nice. More pine aroma than grapefruit. Bitter of course. A dipa that you only need one of. Nice beer and would never turn one down. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

AdamChandler (4507) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 10, 2012
Bomber from a new locals trader. Deep golden with a finger head. Huge malt bomb on the nose. Very much a west coast IPA with American hops and huge dry hopping. This is the same on the taste. Wow. Yeah, big but needs more balance

5000 (6599) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - OCT 9, 2012
Bottle:   Amberish, fairly clear, light carbonation, moderate white foamy head, fairly sticky lacing.   Sweet candied citrus peel like aroma, hoppy and certainly on the sticky/sweet/citrusy side.   A bit more pithy on the tongue., not as sweet as I thought.   Certainly citrusy, but needs that sweet candied citrus peel I got on the nose.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   While smooth, its not as big as I thought it was going to be.   Smells sweeter, more inviting than it actually is.   Its a hoppy side of the coin, unlike what I prefer which tends to be the malty side (nearing Barley Wine category).   Still a great IIPA, just could use some touches to further impress me.   Thanks for the bottle Bill!

Nice deep orange/light amber, with frothy white head, loads of lacing. Nice. Beautiful citrus aromas, along with sweet malts and piney hops. Very lovely citrus smell going on, the kind I love in IPAs and Double/Imperial IPAs. Excellent. A lot of the nose follows through onto the tongue, with a medium body, not too heavy, not too light but just right. Lovely citrus coming through, as well as the malt and hops, of course. The hops are not as intense as one would think for a DIPA, but serve as a perfect balancing act between the citrus and malt sweetness. A solid West Coast DIPA, not the best or even close, but I would have this again.
