Bottle: In between a few lambics I went back to a Californian IPA, this one is powerful even a bit too much. Extreme brew.

Bomber. Pours a copper orange with an off white head and aroma of hops and resin. Taste is bitter, of hops, resin, pine, and caramel notes leading to a dry, bitter finish.

On Draught
Pours a gold color with a good head and beautiful lacing on the glass

The aroma is floral and citrusy... hoop forward and inviting but surprisingly faint in some ways. Itís got a little dankness, maybe a little booze, but nothing to identify it in the double digits.

The flavor is a medium bitter with some light sweetness and a bigger than I normally dig on booze character. Itís got an odd mix of hop flavors and sensations herbal & floral for the most part, lightly fruity... sort of spicy...
All tighter just sort of all over the place.

I can see how this is an enjoyable beer for many people, I just donít think that this is my kind of double IPA.

Big Piney IPA. Amber colored. Real resinous, caramel, sticky and boozy. A little much, but what else do you want in a big IPA.

Bottle. Pours clear copper with decent off white head. Nose is pine and maple. Lots of bitterness and alcohol in the taste. You can taste the 10%.

Tap @ William K Freda. Clear orange with small white. Caramel with grapes and citrus. Bitter with lots of grassy hops that balance the sweetness. A very nice DIPA.

2015 bottle. Rosy orange colour with a slightly off white head. Aroma of orange and grapefruit, maple and pine. Taste nicely balanced despite the massive hops, sweet and crisply bitter. Medium hops and full body with a nice oily mouthfeel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tap@1pp. Amber clear. Huge piney, resinous, bit foresty deep caramelly nose. Med full bodied, assertive bitters, some almondy-caramelly abv pushing through. Pines, woody resinous flavour and finish. A powerful, sort of old school dipa. Punchy, unapologizing, strong.
