PP Carlsbad. Golden yellow haze in the glass with a thick resinous pine aroma. Taste is chewy, resinous hops and pine with follow-up sweet malt. Quite the solid IIPA although I would prefer a more pronounced floral character.

Pours a hazy, deep golden color with a medium-sized white head. Strong fruity aroma; peaches and grapefruit. Piney hop aroma. Hops and bitterness take center stage in the mouth. Enjoyable!

manuchampions (1244) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 30, 2010
Old rate 2008. 650ml bottle from Philadelphia roadtrip. Hazy golden with a lasting off-white head. Delicious sweet hop aroma, dominated by orange, apricot and peach, with a little pine and tobacco bite. The flavour is the real deal: Extremely bitter, to the point of hurting the throat, and with no cloying malt sweetness. There is a touch of alcohol showing up at the end, along with green, pine, hoppy flavours in the aftertaste.

Thorpe429 (5016) - , Illinois, USA - NOV 30, 2010
Pours a dark brown with a white head and a little bit of lacing. Smell is a lot of citrus (mostly grapefruit) hops with a bit of a floral character coming in as well. Taste is very similar with a strong bitterness and only a slight backing of caramel malt. Moderate body with good carbonation. Very drinkable, especially for a double IPA. Intriguing hop presence that I thoroughly enjoyed, perhaps more so than Sculpin. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 02-17-2010

UPDATED: JUN 28, 2013 Light fresh hop aroma. Golden-amber in color. Sweet and freshingly hopped light citrus finish. A nice hop bite in the taste.

PapaSkeetSkeet (1008) - Providence, Rhode Island, USA - NOV 11, 2010
Pours a dark amber in a dimly lit environment. Holding it up to a white wall it looks light amber/deep gold. Cask at Al’s of Hampden by the way. This smells like caramel and tastes like caramel, way too much sweetness, kind of flat. Hops are an afternote; I don’t really remember them much.

Mine was a clear amber from the tap. Citrus hop aroma right from the start. Malty backbone set up the hop kick. Very good after taste that lingered. A very good beer.

Hazy orange pour with a creamy off white head which quickly dissipated. The aroma is sweet peach and barley with hint of orange. The flavor is barley, citrus, bitter grape fruit in finish. Full bodied yet highly drinkable.
