WisconsinBeer (716) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - MAY 7, 2009
Bottle. Bright amber color pour, minimal head. Soft crystal and golden malts, followed by a slightly sweet chewy resinous hop wallop of grapefruit and citrus. Dry hopping adds a slight pine like aromatic presence to the finish. Slight alcohol burn at the end rounds it out. This is definitely a west coast Imperial IPA, big on every level. Solid.

buzzoven (376) - JAPAN - MAY 6, 2009
Very deep orange hue...a little bit murky but otherwise clear colour. Heavy citrus hops from the nose. Piney taste, orange peel, citrusy fruits, slightly sweet but not enough sweetness to balance out the massive bittering blast of this Double IPA monster. Brutal brew...could have used a bit more refining to make it a less challenging experience; i did, however, enjoy this.

Birdiebeagle (958) - Perkasie, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 5, 2009
Bottle Pours a cloudy golden orange with a big off white frothy head. The head seems to last well, and laces even better. Has a good hoppy aroma, of pine and citrus. Has a good carbonation and a good mouthfeel. Has a good bitter flavor. A well blended beer for ABV. Has a solid finish with a great aftetaste. Has a medium body. Very crisp and alittle bit of a dry texture. This is a darn good beer.

tokyogoat (1503) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 3, 2009
Poured orange tinted gold color. Nice head, good lacing and halo. Smells of bread and piny hops. Tastes a little too sweet, very earthy, mostly pine hops, no fruit hints, malt is there, sweet start, hoppy pine finish. Alcohol is hidden very well. A bit of a chalky taste on the tongue. A little too sweet, and this combo slightly dulls the beer. A good DIPA, for $8, i dont think it is that impressive, glad I only got one.

fiver29 (1036) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - MAY 2, 2009
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 isn’t sweet at all. This is easily one of the best I’ve tried in the style. Just awesome. Thanks Mike for opening it.

BuckeyeBoy (4944) - 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.

daknole (10785) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAY 2, 2009
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.

NobleSquirrel (3439) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 26, 2009
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 didn’t 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
