This has to be one of my favorite dipas, maybe my favorite. The aroma is definitely one of a kind from what I have seen in this style. Slightly thick. Pour is brown and not cloudy. I love the palate. I think the beer is unique all around. The mouth fill is gorgeous. This beer comes down to being purely beautiful.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 13, 2012
In bottle. Pours a golden - amber colour with a thick beige head. Lovely hoppy aroma of pine, passion fruit, pineapple and caramel. Alcohol is really quite prominent with flavours of pineapple, passion fruit, mango, caramel and a bitter finish. Quite hot with some dryness also.

Chuckaduck (669) - Highland Heights, Kentucky, USA - JAN 8, 2012
Pours a clear red brown with a fluffy white head. Aroma is pine hops, vanilla, caramel, some dark fruitiness. Flavor is floral, fruity, citrus, caramel and bread; very full-bodied and complex. Syrupy bittersweet finish; goes down very smooth. Very drinkable. Nice lacing.

Cannile (16) - California, USA - JAN 3, 2012
I cracked the bottle and was immediately greeted with an explosion of deep forest pine and dank hop skunkiness. Pours thick and moderately syrupy. Dark copper in color. Head dissipates fairly quickly, though leaves generous lacing at every inch it touches. Aroma of sharp pine, rosemary, weed, and grass. As the liquid warms, that signature butterscotch aroma of diacetyl quickly makes an appearance. And although this descriptor may be used often, there is an element in its aroma that smells as if you really are sticking your nose into a package of fresh high-alpha hops. Moderately full bodied and fairly sweet with generous two-dimensional caramel and scotch malt characteristics. Immediately displays a perfect dose of that first-wort bitter characteristic along with that butterscotch diacetyl we talked about upon sipping, following by a complimentary dose of spice and pine hop characteristics. Hardly oxidized. There are little to no fruity, citric hop attributes in this one. I find that the entire hop profile of this beer is balanced in absolute perfect harmony, in that it is not weighted as too bitter, too flavorful, or too aromatic. Also, at ten percent alcohol by volume, there is not a single hint of booze. The first thing that comes to mind as I enjoy this Knuckle Sandwich is a coiled rattlesnake, ready to strike at its unsuspecting prey, in the sense that every aspect of this beer is pulled back and tight-knit; bitterness, maltiness, flavorful, moderately full-bodied ... and yet I am only halfway through the twenty-two ounce bottle and am already feeling its venomous effects. Pretty good stuff.

Split a 22oz bottle with a friend. Poured a light caramel color with a small slightly fluffy white head. Aroma was sweet tropical fruits, touch of pine. No heavy malt character - unless my palate deceives me (it could just be that this one didnít have the typical malt-bomb characteristics Iíve come to find in this particular, sometimes poorly labeled style). Alcohol is well hidden for 10% ABV.

Bomber from Beverages 4 Less in Santee, CA. Fred gets a lot of good beers! Pours a dark ruddy/brown copper with a slight foamy beige head. Strong grapefruit rind aroma - but itís smooth. Full bodied. Flavor is grapefruit rind, arguably resin, and some fairly roasted malt. But itís all about the hops here. This stuff is stuffed with hops. Enough to put on a burn. Gotta be in the top 10 of DIPAs. The hop bitter/burn just goes on and on.

Clear brownish pour. Cream colored head. Aroma of dope and grapefruit peel. Flavor is resin, citrus peel. Amazing. Simply amazing.
