Draught at CBC 2014. Hazy orange liquid with a medium white head. Aroma of tangerine, citrus, bread, mango, bread and sweet fruit. Taste is dry and medium bitter with notes of tangerine and citrus. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Outstanding DIPA.

My favorite IIIPA, on par with Pliney the Younger however it has a hotter taste.

Draft on tap at Lions Tiger Beers 2014 (Chicago, IL). Pours a deep orange glowing hue, faint haze but near transparent. Big glow is very summer sunset with frothy offwhite head atop, stays as a decent layer, laces ok. Aromas are nice fruity hops, melon and grapefruit meet a jab of tropical fruit. Firmer florals, gentle pine and more citrus. A touch bready, the beer is mellow but grows slowly with nice fruity edge. Nose grows, fruity melange and nice hop elements, touch of bubblegum. Initial is lighter end of the fold, gentle bready malts meets potent fruity hops, citrus and tropical fruit, grassy and floral bitterness starts to grow. Middle is fruity and light, reallyt flows well with potent bitterness, tropical fruit, mango, touch of pineapple. Firmer florals, Amarillo like gumball feel. Backend is dry, bitter and clean. The finish really never let’s you think this is anywhere in such a potent ABV zone. Clean, bitter and fruity with nice flavors overall. Really fresh, fruity with citrus zest, richer tropical fruit, mango and melon. Tasty stuff and a winner of the day at the time. Rich flavors, amazing to think this is even a 6% beer let alone 12%. Would never be able to guess that.

Lilja (1530) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JUN 10, 2014
Smakprov på CBC 2014. Smak och doft av passionsfrukt, ananas, mango, lichti. Mycket fruktig lagom sötma med tydlig beska med smak av grapefrukt och maskros. Fantastiskt god, fina smaker, bra sötma, torr och välbalanserad.

tiong (3615) - Espoo, FINLAND - JUN 9, 2014
Draught @ APEX, Portland, OR

Pours clear dark orange with a smooth white head. Aroma of juicy fruits, dank hops, citrus, loads of caramely malts and lemon. Taste is really smooth and juicy with loads of zesty fruits, dank hops, citrus and some caramely maltiness. Finish is massively hoppy, juicy and sweetish with some lingering bitterness and maltiness. Incredibly drinkable considering the ABV. Excellent stuff.

Growler shared by Dreadnaught33. Many thanks! It sat in UPS’ clutches for 11 days, so this review will be admittedly off the mark. Pours a clear dark orange with active carbonation. Head is white, thick and lasting with spotty lacing and spongy wisp on the meniscus. Aroma is full and rich: citrus with focus in lemon and oranges, slightly dank, malt and bread at the end. Flavor is full and intense: hops and citrus tang that gives way to malt and slight boozy note in the finish. Oily mouthfeel and intense carbonation. An amazing beer. It’s at about 75% of what it was when I had it at Apex in Portland, OR in February, 2013. I look forward to having this fresh.

CBC Session 2. Almost clear gold beer, small white head. Palate is light and minerally crisp. Hops are floral with resinous pine and nice tropical fruits. Little hop spice and skunk. Light crisp finish. Very good indeed.

thome50 (989) - Boringville aka Irvine, California, USA - JUN 1, 2014
Tap at FWIBF. Pours a slight orange to yellow with a light white head. Aroma is heavy orange sugar and danky hops. Taste is a very sweet citra esque hop beer. Very sweet and malty. Not a fan of over 9% DIPA beers it seems.

Benfi (519) - DENMARK - MAY 31, 2014
Pours a bright clear copper color with a medium white head. A nice fruity resinous nose. The flavor is slightly hot, grainy, big lemon and resin. Smooth and flavorful.
