Reddish gold pour. Nice combination of citrus and pine in the aroma. Hop bitterness balances well with the malt backbone. Relatively clean finish. Nice brew - does a good job hiding the 10%.

Aroma is citrus, sugar, spices and a hint of tea. The flavor is citrus, biscuit malts, slight heat and a mix of alcohol, sugar and tangy in the finish.

Lots of piney orange citrus. Beautiful orange color. Big caramel malt backbone. Very well blanced. This DIPA is unique and is one of the better ones i have had.

Pour on tap at APN 2013, hazy orange pour with thin white head, aroma was very sweet orange, and grapefruit notes, hints of spice, lots of caramel, toffee, slight grassy notes in there as well. Taste is a mix of orange, grapefruit, sweet caramel, toffee, hints of grass, slight earth, finishing fairly bitter. Ok.

Split a pounder with one of my co-workers, who brought this from Minnesota. Thanks! Poured a clear, dark orange color with a medium sized white head. Aroma was herbal hops, bitterness, plenty of resin. Flavor had plenty of hops, malts, nice balance. Not overly boozy for nearly 10%. This was dangerously good.

pkbites you and I must have completely different taste buds, or you rated the wrong beer... no caramel or malt and all... this was a hop bomb and had only hop characteristics. Floral and citrus to the finish and I wish it has a little more malt to balance it out a little better.
This was very enjoyable and will definitely drink again

2.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Cloudy but light reddish pour. Slightly off white head that is creamy with some lacing on the glass. Nice caramel/bakery/malty aroma. Thick, sweet, caramel mouth feel.
Strong alcohol content is immediately detected and itís not pleasant. This would be quite good if not for the malt liquor burn upon swallow. Ethanol over takes the hops and other flavors. High ABV all but ruins an otherwise excellent brew. For shame. ĎTis a pity.
2.6 out of 5.

Can. Pours a hazy orange body with a thick one-inch white head. Aroma of citrus, grapefruit, sugar, and floral hops. Flavor is similar, although rather sweet. Slightly sticky on the palate. Light carbonation. Finishes with a nice hop bitterness. Quite drinkable with no noticeable alcohol burn.
