ACHops (598) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 25, 2012
On tap @ Chuckís 85th. Pours dark orange with a thin head. Aroma is caramel malt and floral piney hops. Taste is big hops with thick pine and grapefruit notes, followed by sweet light toffee flavor malts. 10% abv is well hidden - substantial but seems smaller than that. Tasty.

joeneugs (2932) - Livermore, California, USA - MAR 23, 2014
On tap at the Livermore Saloon. It pours a clear golden color with a huge off white head. The aroma is super juicy with lots of mango, peaches and orange. The flavor is the same with massively fruity hops and some nice florals and pine in the finish. Full bodied and fruity hops abound. A little onion. Some sweetness on the palate, but it seems to be hop derived rather than malt. Really, really good.

haukur (1204) - Reykjavik, ICELAND - FEB 27, 2014
Tap at Reykjavik Beer Festival. Surprisingly this one only available for a very short timeframe. Amber with a small head, massive pine in the aroma. Taste is very piney with some sticky sweetness and huge afterburn of hops. Very extreme dipa.

maekchu (1772) - Hirakata, JAPAN - FEB 15, 2014
Tap at Imperial Bottle Shop and Taproom. Big citrusy nose, blooms into berries. Clear bright amber color. Massive caramel initial, peaches, overripe apples / some pretty rough hops, tobacco in mid / finishes with a burst of maltiness, tropical fruit sweetness. Medium-heavy body. Very very tasty. Maintains fruitiness throughout. Maybe a touch too sweet. But Iíd have another.

LarryBeast (454) - - FEB 6, 2014
Tap at Pine Box. Big citrus (grapefruit, tangelo, pineapple) and pine aroma. Massively hopped, but held together with a solid malt background. Chewy, fuller-bodied DIPA. Great dry, bitterness and strong, warming alcohol punch. Long finish. Very impressed.

Kilroy59 (2) - Bend, Oregon, USA - JAN 24, 2014 does not count
Iíve had this both in draught and out of a growler. Both times in a pint glass, and I have to say, this beer may not be perfect, but if it isnít, itís as close to it as Iíve ever had! I could stick my whole head into the top of a glass and sniff the aroma for 5 minutes before even taking a sip! Itís phenomenal! This is probably the best overall beer Iíve ever had. I saw one review saying that the guy had a sample of this next to a sample of DFHís 90 minute and chose this one. Iíd do the same, and thatís saying a lot! This is a fairly regional beer, as itís not bottled or canned, only kegged. If youíre ever in the PNW and get a chance at it, do NOT pass it up!

Tap, don't remember much as I had it beers deep into the day, but sampled next to 90 minute and took this one. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Brentv (235) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 9, 2014
UPDATED: JAN 21, 2014 Pint glass from draught. Pours amber with big white head. Good lacing. Big hoppy floral aroma. Floral/citrus taste with a big hop nose, a little sweet, and a pleasant hoppy bitterness. This is a great beer that Iíve had a few times and always love to see. Theyíre now limiting sales to on draught only, no growler fills. Really? Iíd love to take some home with me.

Davhgbrew (887) - Coconut Creek, Florida, USA - JAN 7, 2014
Hazy amber color heavy lacing. Floral hop aroma. Sips full and bitter w/ slight caramel sugar malt sweetness balance. Full bodied and slightly creamy throughout. High abv is well blended in. This is a top notch beer.

hopscotch (8544) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 27, 2013
Growler... Mostly-clear yellow pour with a small, creamy, white head. The hop-driven nose is musky, dank and fruity Ė apricot or peach or pluot or all three. Medium to full-bodied and lightly creamy with dancing carbonation. The flavor and finish are both bitter and biting. Growler courtesy of ctipping!
