Bottle pours golden orange color with off white head. Aroma is grapefruit citrus and is a real hop blast. Nice. Medium mouthfeel. Flavor is wonderful. Its a grapefruit puckering brew. Has some residual caramel on the finish and isnít sweet at all. This is easily one of the best Iíve tried in the style. Just awesome. Thanks Mike for opening it.

BuckeyeBoy (4055) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAY 2, 2009
Bottle Pours out a hazy gold topped with a small white head. aroma was of sweet fruit and caramel. Some citrus hops also. Tast was more of the fruit apple, peach, even a little mellon and more of the caramel. Thanks Footbalm.

Holy delicious IIPA batman!! Amber/orange pour wtih a small of white head. Sweet honey, caramel, and beautiful citrus and floral hops. Flavor is hoppy but juicy and malty as hell. Really an enjoyable beer. Very approachable and nice.

Bottle thanks to Snojerk321. Pours a nice golden amber with a white frothy head. Nose is very much C-hops, not particularly San Diego Style, though does seem comparable to Sculpin, but bigger. Some nice malt notes come through as well. Taste is pretty astringently bitter with citrus and grapefruit, as well as a sweet and malty aspect. Pretty big IIPA, though not what I was expecting. Still, pretty damn tasty.

I think I will need to rerate this at some point. I know there is something good going on here, but it didnít quite hit me. Its reasonably malty for the style, with a sharp bitterness. Lots of citrus hops, but seemed a little one dimensional? will come back to this

22 oz bomber thanks to padrefan98, thanks Jon. Nice amber body with an average size white head. Aroma is big on the citrus hops but shows complexity and balance. Fairly well hidden ABV on this one with a smooth body and average carbonation. Flavor has lots of grapefruit, citrus, caramel malts and a touch of fruitiness. Very nicely done but so far 2009 has been the year of the DIPA and this one just doensít stand up to the likes of Double Trouble and the new king Hop Stoopid.

Courtesy WeeHeavySD. Pours a clear amber-orange body with a small, foamy off white head that quickly fades away leaving some spots of lacing in the glass. The aroma is really nice and surprised me with all the fruit smells of orange, tangering, grapefruit, and mango. Each smell produces fresh fruit and hop bitterness to go with the toasted caramel base. The flavor is again very fruity with orange, tangerine, and mango coming through with the sweet toasted caramel malt in the background. Orange, grapefruit, and resinous piney hops add ample bitterness. There is also a smooth, vanilla cream present to smooth things out and add nice depth. This just had really great flavors pushing through showing great balance. Medium to full bodied with a chewy and creamy mouthfeel and very easy drinking. Very smooth with a lingering fruity and bittersweet finish from the hops. I think this is my new favorite IIPA. Awesome brew.

SaulusHumulus (47) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 18, 2009
UPDATED: APR 19, 2009 Bottled(@Opus K,Lohja,Finland) The colour is hazily orange at the bottom of the glass and yellow with a tint of green at the surface, kind of a mix of colors. Head is quite large, partially lasting and it leaves a little lacing. Indeed, very tropically fruity aroma has pineapple and mango. It is also very sweet and deep with some bitter, piney hops. Nicely hopped flavor is sweetly fruity, peachy, slightly alcoholic, caramel malty and rounded. Both the aroma and flavor are really good, but they lack the little nuances that would make them perfect, or near perfect. In the aftertaste, thereís some soft and really long, bitter hop presence. Lightly carbonated and quite thick, almost too thick, on the palate. Nice beer, anyways.
