sauceyhops (104) - carlsbad, California, USA - JUN 13, 2009
Bottle from Newport Pizza in OB. Hazy orange pour with no real head to speak up. Aroma of hops and citrus with a little bit of a sweet kick. The mouth feel is smooth and a little heavy. Strong flavor of fresh, piney hops but it is very well balanced with a semi-sweet carmel malt. All around, it’s a solid IIPA

dmschefke (576) - Macomb, Michigan, USA - JUN 10, 2009
Pours a hazy amber orange with medium off-white head. Aroma very pleasant of a nice hops balance, citrus, pine, grass, and a bit of caramel. Flavor matches well and doesn’t have that overdone flavor of some poor attempts at IIPAs. Overall, very nice.

josephselander (42) - Salem, Oregon, USA - JUN 8, 2009
Appearance – Pours a beautiful hazy orange color with light yellow tinge. The head is a yellowish off-white color about 1 finger in size. This looks awesomely juicy and delicious. Smell – Smells great too! Lots of grapefruit and what I believe to be either cascade or centennial hops overwhelm the nose. Taste – This has a great stage of act after act of awesome flavors. It first starts off with a blast of grapefruit, tangerines, and citrus tingling. The middle is full of bitter mouth-puckering awesomeness. Finally it is ended with a floral hop flavor that lasts and taunts you to take another sip. Mouthfeel – This is resinous in the kind of way that I love. It sticks around like tree sap in your mouth and lets you fully experience the flavor profile of this wonderful beer. Drinkability – Wow, great beer. Although, I shared this with a buddy and I still got a massive buzz. I haven’t eaten anything for almost 12 hours though, so that may be why. I wish I could drink a million of these, absolutely awesome brew.

This beer is as close as it gets to duplicating "The Pliny" With that said. It is very good. I really don’t know what else to say. If you can’t get Pliny then get this instead.

Beardface (1517) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - JUN 1, 2009
22 oz bottle obtained via trade. Pours a deep golden color with a moderate white head that faded quickly. Aroma is all hops, citrus mainly with some light floral and pine. Flavor is very citric and piney, and is maybe just a slight bit too boozy, which is unusual in a DIPA. Light malt in flavor too, but mostly just a hop bomb. I preferred the Sculpin I had for sure.

glkaiser (1214) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 29, 2009
22oz bottle. Dark golden with medium off white head. Nice citrus hop aroma. Taste screams deep caramel malts most of the way through, then finishes with a bitterness that balances well. Hop flavor mingles with the malts and is quite enjoyable, but pure hop flavor is pretty subdued.

Pawola22 (3262) - Plainfield, Illinois, USA - MAY 28, 2009
On tap at the brewery in San Diego. Pours a crystal clear, lighter orange body with a thicker, foamy, white head that dissipates slowly and leaves lots of nice, layered lacing. Aroma is sweet citrus and very floral. Lots of perfume hoppiness. Some sweet caramels as well. Flavor is similar and very tasty. Lots of floral and sweet hops with a very nice balancing caramel. Some peachy flavors and a little resiny, slightly sour candy taste as well. Palate is medium bodied and finishes sugary sweet and dry with a long lingering taste. Overall, a very solid DIPA. Nothing too out there, but well balanced and tasty.

BMan1113VR (7909) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAY 24, 2009
On tap at the Toronado SD. Pours with a hazed golden body and a white head. Aroma of pine, citrus hops, apricot and floral notes. Taste is herbal and citrus hops upfront with caramel and a near candi sugar sweetness. Lively carbonation and a water like mouthfeel. Finishes on the drier side of the spectrum (residual sugars wise).
