MartinT (7760) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 6, 2010
My Bottom Line:
Tropical fruit and bitter resins emanate from this juicy Double IPA, merging into honeyed cereals which sculpt a cushiony yet bulky mouthfeel.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A ring of foam surrounds the cloudy orange amber.
-This has more character than their Five Zero, which I tried side by side.
-The resinous hops provide plenty of bitterness, yet this is never overwhelming. It is done tastefully.
-A sandy component also protrudes throughout; with the tropical connotations, methinks there’s quite a bit of Simcoe in here...

On tap at Rattle ’n’ Hum, NYC.

Draft. Pours golden orange with a white head. Hoppy floral aroma with some light sweetness. The flavor has floral hops, some light citric notes, and some sweetness. Nice.

zach8270 (3376) - Henrietta, New York, USA - APR 2, 2010
(cask @ Hop Into Easter - The Old Toad - Rochester, NY) Clear copper pour with a thin white head. Very floral and grassy in the aroma with a lot of pine as well. Flavor starts off with a ton of citrus and pine notes, but then the flavor disappears. Literally. There’s a slight hint of citrus and pine at the end, but the hops all but disappear. Very odd.

@Magnolias–on cask-pours no head and hazy gold/amber color. Aroma is pine/some citrus hops [cascade], some light/medium malt. Taste is lemon/some orange-citrus/pine/herbal hops, some sweet light/medium malt. Minimum carbonation.

kmweaver (3206) - Petaluma, California, USA - FEB 17, 2010
Draft @ Toad in the Hole. Pours a bright, hazy-orange color; fine-bubbled white head with decent retention and lacing; solid pour. Lots of citrus notes, pine, and grapefruit in the aroma; nicely resiny, oily, and pleasantly dry. Medium-to-full body: lots of dense, oily and resiny hop character; nicely dry, plenty of orange, citrus and piney bitterness; tongue-numbing to a degree; very solid DIPA, and I’ve been pretty sick of them lately; tasty stuff. Lasting orange and citrus hop character; nicely dry and toasty.

popery (1371) - San Francisco, California, USA - FEB 10, 2010
Draft, The Bistro, DIPA Festival. Mildly disappointing but not bad. I was more disappointed that neither of the Bear Republic beers at the festival really wowed me. This beer was enjoyable in its own right but a bit overshadowed on the day. 11 has more malt presence than I was expecting. The flavor is mostly a fairly standard pine and grapefruit mix of hop notes. The specialty malt brings some sweetness, but it’s fairly tame. There just wasn’t enough going to stand out from the pack. It’s an amber-colored beer, rather dark for the day, with an off-white head. Good bitter finish. This one is listed at 100+ IBUs, which is significantly higher than I would have guessed.

SamGamgee (2452) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - FEB 10, 2010
Draught at Bistro’s 10th DIPA festival. Hazy orange with a small head. Spiced orange aroma, very fruity, with mild grainy malt. Different for sure, but really pleasant. The flavor is dry citrus with plenty of tangerine supported by bready and lightly grainy malt. Smooth bitterness and good overall balance, though plenty hoppy. Medium bodied with no alcohol felt and a smooth texture. Really tasty, and definitely stood out from the crowd at the festival with that spicy orange thing going on.
