A very nice IIPA. Copper/amber pour with a sticky off-white head. nice lacing. Good aroma of fresh hops, flowers, and caramel. Well balanced IPA with lots of resiny hops and bread/caramel malt to back it up. Pine, grapefruit, citrus, grain.

Dickinsonbeer (5075) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - APR 9, 2009
Bomber. Pours a mostly clear copper wth a nice big rocky lasting white head and nice lace. Aroma is tons of PNW hops- columbus minty citrus hints of cold hoppy smokiness, cluster- slight cattyness- pine and green, and lots of nice citrus all around. Malt profile is plain but stands up to the hops and keeps it unbalanced which is good- tons of resinous hops all around- pine, dank weed, slight mint, and lots of citrus- hints of more cat pee as it warms- more pine sap and slight soapiness. Good harsh resinous bitterness in the end. Nice!

Coltrane (108) - South Carolina, USA - APR 8, 2009
Amazing double. Slightly thicker than Sculpin, but with the same grapefruit freshness. A bit pricey at 9 a bomber, but certainly worth a taste. Ridiculous hops, but with a nice balance.

Pours deep clear amber into a snifter. Off-white head pancakes and recedes to spot surface leaving slight spiders. Strong pine resin and grapefruit aromas. Sweet full honey upfront turning crisp then syrupy. Lasting resin finish. A sipper.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - APR 5, 2009
Bottle shared with MaltOMeal. Thanks, Bill! Pours a thick and vivacious cheddar orange with a healthy head of foam. Aroma is spicy malt grapefruit, with just a smidgen of pine and orange. Flavor is a mouth-puckering assault of grapefruit, spicy grain, and pine. Tingly and pleasant on the tongue. One of the truly great IPAs.

22oz. Bottle: Aroma of hops, grapefruit, pine, hop juice, toasted malts, slight tangerine, and citrus. Poured amber/orange in color with a large, creamy, dense, rocky, off-white head that lasted throughout. Clear. Lightly sparkling. Very good to excellent lacing. Lightly sweet, medium to heavily bitter. Tastes of hops, pine, orange, slight caramel, grapefruit, tangerine, hop oil, and a hint of honey. Medium body. Oily, slightly sticky, slightly dry texture. Average carbonation. Slightly sweet, medium bitter, hop oil and citrus-fruit finish is lightly dry. 9.6%ABV is very well hidden.

ksurkin (1021) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - APR 3, 2009
UPDATED: MAY 13, 2009 bomber from CBX. pours a gorgeous golden, amber color with a thin, foamy off white head and excellent lacing. aroma is absolutely amazing. huge citrus hops dominated by grapefruit and tangerine with big scents of peach, strawberry, mango, spicy pine, flowers, and just a hint of malt sweetness. flavor is an amazing, huge, explosion of delicious citrus hops, pine, tropical fruits, and apricot, backed by huge, sweet, caramel malts and lovely alcohol warmth. finish is deliciously bitter with floral and earthy tones. mouthfeel is perfectly balanced, medium bodied, sticky, and effortless to drink. i thought sculpin was great, but this one is on another level. great beer.

Pours out golden amber with lots of foam, that lasts. Great piney sweet smell. Taste is citrus sweet with lots of hops. Perfect sharp bitter crisp finish. One of the best Westcoast DIPA.

ross (2128) - weddington, North Carolina, USA - APR 1, 2009
Bottle. I was glad to have found this, this has been on the old want list for a while now. Pours out a brownish color with a chunky white head on it. Smell is full of hops, citrus, grass, pine, grapefruit, awesome! Taste is very similar with a giant kick of hops. Very bitter, overly bitter, like they are trying to make it bitter. But it works because there is a nice little malt backbone to help it. Really good beer, damn good actually.
