BrockLanders (780) - Panama City, Florida, USA - JAN 6, 2010
Bottle from South Bay Drugs & Liquors. One of the best DIPAs on the market. Has all the bases covered....awesome hop blast to the nose, outstanding flavor....not so much due to any great balance between malt and hop, but more due to the fact that the intense hoppiness is just that good. Not thin on the palate either........quite a tasty brew.

Cokemonkey11 (505) - - SEP 19, 2016
Brown American bottle. Pours medium dark imperial amber, hazy, lightly opaque. Medium white foam subsiding average. Scent is medium early hops and not much else. Taste is medium imperial yeast, little bit musty. Earthy. Resin. Finish is smooth and clean. Cookie cutter. Very good.

SHIG (4670) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - SEP 17, 2016
Bottle: Poured golden with white head. Aroma is nice hops. Taste is malty balanced by sharp bitter hops.

SanfordBrewer (1502) - Sanford, Florida, USA - SEP 16, 2016
A lot of vegetative hop character, without much enticing hop aromatics. Wort-like malt profile. Just not very complex or interesting.

justkoehn (111) - Michigan, USA - SEP 15, 2016
No lacing and little head. Brown color with orange hue. Floral aroma. Sits easily on the tongue. Sweet start with hoppy finish and lingering bitterness. Solid DIPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

phillybass (114) - Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 13, 2016
I do not ordinarily drink a double India pale ale because I simply do not care for the high alcohol or extreme hops bitterness. This beer is drinkable although I would only have her have one in a night. I think this beer is great for sipping it's very tasty ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

HippieFee (325) - - SEP 13, 2016
Bottle - Dry on the palate, feels "thick" as well. Not as much bitterness on this imperial IPA as I would have expected. Nothing that sticks out to me in terms of flavor on this beer but to my untrained palate I do get some fruit flavors. Decent beer.

Franckg (1183) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 13, 2016
Bouteille sans date. Robe orangée foncée trouble avec un mince voile de mousse. Arômes de malt caramélisé, marmelade d’agrumes, pamplemousse, gazon frais, zeste d’orange. En bouche, malt caramelisé et agrumes sucrés, pamplemousse rose saupoudré de sucre, pelures d’orange, notes d’alcool. Texture huileuse épaisse et corps moyen à rond. Bien

ZacM612 (568) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - AUG 6, 2016
Draft at BP in San Diego. Amber color with lacing head. Floral aroma. Strong malty flavor balances well with the hoppy, slightly bitter finish.

drjoeng (857) - SINGAPORE - JUL 20, 2016
10%ABV. Double IPA. Poured out deep gold. 8°SRM. Nose has pine and resin. Deep enduring resin aroma. Mouthfeel is soapy. Palate has graham cracker, light elderflower honey, taffy. Hops are spicy with cilantro, Thai basil. Finish is medium with a deep fresh pine needle, herbaceous bitter. Goes on Favorites List !

hershiser2 (2060) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JUL 19, 2016
$2.80 bottle from Wine Warehouse. Pours slightly hazy orange with a small white head. Luscious orange aroma, slightly candied but it’s not bothering me. Flavor is a strong orange peel, heavy malts, syrupy. Is not my favorite.
