The beer smeels of crisp citrus fruits with a bit of a resiny stinch as well. It pours a dark orange body with a sticky off white head. The beer is bitter upfront with a lingering sweetness at the end. The alcohol is hidden well but you can sense that after one bottle you probably will be able to feel a little buzz going. It is moderatly carbonated with a sticky texture to the beer. Overall this is a beer I would drink again and one I would love to always have around and thanks to thome50 I still have one more!

TheEpeeist (3175) - Swarthmore, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 24, 2011
22 oz bottle. Foggy orange brown with a spongy bone head. Enticing nose of orange, pineapple and toffee then strong pine with a touch of cat. Syrupy and resiny with a nice buzz. Heavy at first but melts away like a liquid center. Taste is orange marmalade and gin; like a screwdriver i guess. Pine, pine needles and watermelon finishing crisp and dry like a martini with a twist. Fresh and hoppy.

mattyb83 (736) - Minnesota, USA - AUG 19, 2011
Bottle shared by mtjoseph. Copper in color with a small white head. Tropical fruit aroma with loads of pineapple, and I fucking love pineapple. Slight orange and grapefruit presence, too. Malty sweetness in flavor. More pineapple and fruity flavor. Pretty solid with a bit maltose flavor profile than anticipated in the aroma.

dimenhetfield (2487) - , Florida, USA - AUG 14, 2011
22oz bottle poured into snifter. Amberish gold color with a thick fluffy head. Aroma is full of hops, citrus, slight peach and malt. Much of the aromas come through in the flavors as well. Well balanced with the ABV hidden very well.

suprchunk (1952) - Crestview, Florida, USA - AUG 8, 2011
Dark amber pour with huge frothy cream colored head. Plenty of lacing is left behind, I would say as the head collapses but it sticks around for awhile. Huge sweet hop bouquet. A crystal malt aroma, fruity and sweet. Big malty taste with hints of sugar and caramel. Slightly carbonic and very sweet in the back. A very nice beer. I could drink a few of these and be happy.

regspeir (196) - Havertown, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 31, 2011
22 oz. bottle (Thank you Hamilton23!) poured into a Duvel tulip. Aggressive pour yielded a reddish amber with a smallish off-white head which never seemed to go away. Lacing was apparent throughout, as well. Nose was caramel, orange, pineapple, pine, and some grassiness. Taste was maple sugar, caramel, pineapple, and some spice. Mouthfeel was heavy for a DIPA with healthy carbonation, a little sticky and some booziness, although not unpleasant. This is NOT your typical west coast style DIPA (which I love) but VERY nice. It is well-balanced (NOT bitter), with a hefty malt backbone and just an all around interesting ride. I recommend you try it and only wish I could (again).

pushkinwow (1842) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 29, 2011
Bomber from Garth at SD Toronado who we sat next to - great guy. Amber with tan/brown head. Mild pot, pine, citrus, alcohol and malts. Over carbonated, sweet but becomes bitter, ok balance although the finish is a little harsh/alcohol.

Bottle from Sean - thanks! Pours with a velvety thick, off-white head on clear, copper colored beer. Aroma is huge pine, dank hops, minor citrus, and underlying bready malt. Taste is noticeably less hop heavy than the aroma and presents with some pine, no citrus, and a well-balanced, biscuity malt backbone. Slight sweetness from the heavy malt but no noticeable alcohol. Solid and enjoyable IIPA but doesn’t have enough over-the-top floral hops in the aroma and definitely the taste to take it to the next level for me.
