_angst_ (3158) - Göteborg, - DEC 23, 2012
Bomber courtesy of my secret santa joeneugs. Pours tiny hazy deep golden with a rather fluffy offwhite head that is pretty quick to dissipate while leaving some sticky trace on the glass. Smell is sweet, slightly malty, fruity and hoppy with biscuits, crackers, grapefruit juice, pineapple, mango, alcohol, oily pine, resinous wood, oily fresh lemon zest, caramel, lychee and cape gooseberries. Taste is sweet, bitter, malty and fruity with grapefruit juice, oily pine, resinous wood, biscuits, alcohol, orange zest, lemon zest, overripe tropical fruits, crackers, caramel and hints of gooseberries and green kiwi fruit, mouthfeel is round, oily bitter, tiny boozy and medium to full bodied. Finish is tiny sweet and bitter with caramel, oily pine, pineapple, resinous wood, biscuits, alcohol, grapefruit rinds and green kiwi fruit. Solid stuff...

PhatB420 (666) - Pittsfield, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 30, 2015
12oz into a flute. Pours a syrupy honey amber orange glow with nectar shades. Head is medium, disconnected, 2-3 cm, lacing is all over in thin layers leaking down. Aroma of pine, tangerine, musky soil, ripe hops, burnt orange peel. Taste of dirty pine cones, nectar, tangerines, grapefruit, old coriander, with a hoppy presence to it all. Lovely earthy feel is omitted while endulging. A bitter slap to the pallate in the aftertaste. Lingers awhile. No freshness date on bottle. Too bad. Abv is not too overbearing, drinks like an 8 or 9, but the booze monster lies within. Solid for a dipa.

Orange, white head, and mild lacing. Pine, citrus, floral, caramel, and orange peel aroma. Full bodied, syrupy, lemon, salt, sweet caramel, mild wood, and mild alcohol note. High hop bitterness start to finish, nice sweet malt balance, mild dry notes. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cybercat (3576) - Georgia, USA - JAN 22, 2015
Pours beautiful dark amber with a thick and fluffy pale buff head. Strong aroma is quite hoppy, resiny, with fruity hints. Bold flavor charges fierce hops across the tongue, resiny and evergreen, somewhat bitter, subtly malty and fruity, with just a whisper of honey. Texture is firm and smooth, going down well, if not too fizzy; finish is evergreen hoppy and a little fruity. Glad that I finally caught one!

mrhopsbeertalk (165) - Massachusetts, USA - JAN 22, 2015
A really solid DIPA with a hop aroma focussed on citrus, floral and orange. Lots of clean crisp bitterness with similar flavors tempered very slightly by the caramel malts.

c_lee_burton (139) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JAN 17, 2015
Nice balanced Imperial IPA. Pours a beautiful amber color. Scents of citrus and sweetness. You get hops, but also a lot of citrus flavors like orange, grapefruit, and passion fruit. First time for this beer and I would have it again.

Ericular (705) - Minnesota, USA - JAN 17, 2015
UPDATED: JAN 24, 2015 Bottle #1: Pours a nice clear amber with lasting white head leaving great lacing. Aroma is boozy pine hops. Taste is strong overall, with resinous, alcohol-laden hops up front. Drying with continued alcohol and hops in the middle, into a warming bitter aftertaste. I know it’s 10%, but this is way too much alcohol. Bottle #2: This stays relatively drinkable, although it’s not on my side of the earthy/vegetal<-->citrus explosion DIPA spectrum. Tempted to move taste to a 7, but let’s wait for the other 2 bottles first. Bottle #3: Lots of alcohol. Way too much.

12 oz bottle into tulip. Minneapolis. Bottled 15 008. Pours golden on color with amber tint. Transparent. Small white head. Aroma is citrusy, orange in particular. Floral. A little piney. Alcohol is also notable. Taste is bitter upfront. A little sharpness from alcohol. Medium/full bodied for the style. Average carbonation. Long alcoholic finish. Overall this is a good ipa, but the alcohol is not super balances

bigda83 (311) - Jamestown, New York, USA - JAN 14, 2015
Pours orange and clear. Aroma of lots of citrus and juicy. Taste was orange, lemon, grapefruit, and intensely bitter. Bitterness lasted throughout. Not their best offering, but not bad.
