MadRobin (1880) - Silver Spring, USA - JUL 19, 2014
On tap sampler at Whole Foods in Market Square in Fairfax, VA. Clear (or very nearly so), golden yellow with an off-white head and excellent lacing. Aroma of bright citrus, biscuit and mild tropical fruit. Taste of tangerine and other citrus, biscuit and mild tropical fruit. The alcohol is extremely well hidden. Medium/light body and medium/high carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cybercat (3256) - Georgia, USA - JUL 7, 2014
Pours a clear gold with a thick pale buff head that leaves generous lacing. Aroma is invitingly hoppy, if not strong. Flavor is bolder than the milquetoast of an aroma, hoppy and citrusy, just a tad bitter. Smooth texture is somewhat firm but very lively.

Westchesterco (866) - mclean, Virginia, USA - MAY 30, 2014
From notes on draft at the space bar it is a clear golden color with a slight head the aroma is citrus and the taste is bitter grapefruit that resonated on the palate

radio_nowhere (792) - Maryland, USA - MAY 27, 2014
Draft at their brewpub in Afton, VA. Served in a snifter glass, clear orangy-amber color with off-white head. Aroma of very fruity tropical hops, some pine and citrus balanced nicely with caramel malt sweetness. Taste adds some notes of funky/grassy hops, bready malt and some herbal notes. Heavy-medium body, low carbonation, complex, sweet with lingering fruity/pine finish. Very good warming DIPA, drinks very easy to explore the hop complexities happening.

decaturstevo (4976) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - MAY 26, 2014
Orange pour with creamy white head and lace. Aroma is citrus hops and bread. Very sweet start with a biscuit flavor in the middle. A very nice citrus bitter finish. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Nice clean well balanced beer.

Foxbush (1262) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - MAY 24, 2014
Growler from the brewery The D/IPA poured a clear golden color with a frothy white head and some lacing. The nose detects citrus, orange peel, and spruce. A complex blend of hops, with the taste of various fruits. The ale had medium body with average carbonation. This is excellent D/IPA. There is a complex mixture of hops with a nice warm felling from the higher ABV. The finish left a dry bitterness in the upper mouth.

LilBeerDoctor (3429) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 5, 2014
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear bright orange with a thick white head. Aroma of citrus, orange, bitter hops, hop oils. Flavor of grassy hops, garlicky hops, tropical fruits, mango. Nice malt backbone, not too heavy, with plenty of hops and fruity notes. A good IIPA, I might call it a 1 1/2 IPA. 7/4/8/4/14 (3.7/5)

tia (878) - Sandston, Virginia, USA - JUL 27, 2013
Tap @ Taphouse. Pretty pour. Nice light grapefruit aroma plus some passion fruit. A little sweet a little bier. Overall kind of crisp for a DIPA (might need to warm up a little). Bitterness grows.
