zizzybalubba (1503) - Elizabeth City, North Carolina, USA - OCT 12, 2011
Sampled at GABF 2011 (listed as Raggedy Ass DIPA). Yellowish-orange pour. Very dank aroma of pine and grapefruit. Very nice bitter grapefruit flavor. Not well balanced but no complaints from me. A hop lovers dream. Very well done.

auerbrau (3178) - Peace Dale, Rhode Island, USA - APR 16, 2010
12oz Bottle. Thanks Sean! Sticky, juicy, resinous aroma, full of papaya, pineapple, and prickly pear. Absolutely aromatic. Pours an interesting honey and bronze, with a clean white rim. A delicious dense prickle of sticky yellow resins, juicy fresh hop leaf, and a balancing edge of sugar. This is incredibly hop flavorful. Rich, fruity, bright and electric. As good as most Double IPAs, I’ve ever had. A really winner that I’d be honored and excited to drink anytime it was around. Reminds me how much I really enjoy the style. Nice clean woodsy mineral finish. Awesome, awesome stuff.

On draught at Big Rock Chophouse, 5/9/10

Deep copper,foamy lacing, caramel, grassy, citrus, grapefruity nose. Medium mouthfeel, slick, complex character. Goes down like buttah, incredibly drinkable despite the 9%+ ABV and hoppiness. Not as much bitter as you’d expect given the level of hoppy intensity.

Tmoney99 (11090) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 12, 2010
RBSG 2010. Poured clear copper color with a large frothy off-white head that lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy earth, sour citrus hop and small malt aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Moderate to heavy bittersweet flavor with a moderate to heavy bittersweet finish of medium to long duration. My expectations where exceeded.

patrick767 (3604) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - APR 13, 2011
sampled at last summer’s Michigan Brewer’s Fest - Copper pour with an off-white head. The aroma is of big grapefruit accented hops. The flavor is very bitter as expected with enjoyable citrus notes and good malt backing. It has the characteristic long bitter finish. Crisp and tasty. Well done.

Cloudy amber beer, big white head. Light crisp palate. Sweet pine. Mild minerals. A little creamy malt. Minty coolness from the hops. Aniseed and a whisper of violets and lavender. Mild bitterness in the finish. Light and crisp for a DIPA and hugely drinkable.

riversideAK (5626) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - JUN 5, 2010
Nice nose of tropical fruit - pineapple, mango, grapefruit, apricots. Malt notes of caramel and light brown sugar as well. Pours darker then most for the style, dark amber/coper, nice lasting head and lace. Sweet and fruity, caramel, brown sugar, tropical fruity hops, pineapple, mango, apricot with medium bitterness in the finish. Good body, smooth drinking well done IIPA.

SuzyGreenberg (1603) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 10, 2010
12 oz. bottle; thanks to deyholla for the trade; dark copper with trace white head; nose of tropical fruits, mango and a touch of butter; a little garlic too that has been popping up so much lately to me in IPA’s/DIPA’s; raw, sticky, stale oranges; very dry and resiny bitterness; dry, stale lemons and orangy hops; pretty damn good overall

hopscotch (9553) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 27, 2010
Draft… RBSG/MBGSF… Clear amber ale with a mid-sized, creamy, white head. Excellent retention. The bouquet is a symphony of tropical, citrus and fuzzy fruits. Full-bodied and velvety with tingly carbonation. The big flavor leans on the bitter side of balance, but has a substantial malt backbone. In line with the aroma, there is an abundance of tropical and fuzzy fruit bitterness. Moderately bitter, tongue-numbing finish.

GABF 2010, VG DIPA. preferred this to its neighbor @ GABF Bells the oracle. Big bitterness balanced nicely with rich maltiness. Big bitter flavor. seek this out
