blankboy (6081) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 21, 2014
[Bottle (330ml) shared with and courtesy of jercraigs & mabel] Pours a hazy gold with average size white head and lots of lacing on the glass. Aroma and flavour are nice, citrusy and hoppy along with biscuity malt. Decent bitter finish. Medium bodied. A pretty good DIPA.

jercraigs (7894) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 19, 2014
2014-08-08. Crisp dark orange body nice moderate white head. 3+ Aroma is odd, with green leafy vegetation over muted muddled orange citrus and something else I canĺt define. 6+ Flavour is moderately bitter throughout, resin, sort of oily green leafy hops. Average plus bodied palate, modest carbonation. Decent but the hop profile doesnĺt work for me. Not sure if it is a bit off or just not for me. Bottle dated BB3000914 via trade with Duffman

DuffMan (6802) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 1, 2014
Bottle, actually probably my third or fourth at this point, and this one was graciously given by haukur-- thanks! Medium orange hue with an average white head that retains nicely. Malts are more bready/biscuity than caramel, hops lean toward grapefruit and pine, but there is an earthiness or tea-like character too. The balance here is very nice, so if you are looking for a hop-bomb then this will probably disappoint. I think it is a well crafted IIPA with a nice balance of flavours. Solid.

Yellow towards golden, nice white foam. Malt toffee orange apricot and flowers in the aroma. Malt, caramel with strong sweet hoppy bitterness in the aftertaste. Medium body medium carbon

DrSilverworm (6478) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 8, 2014
33cl bottle, thanks to b3shine for sharing. Best before 300914. Clear golden yellow color. Thin ring of bubbly white head. Looks pale compared to your typical IPA. Pine, grapefruit, zest and grass in the nose. Mild bready malt. Moderate bitter, moderate sweetness. Medium to bigger body. Smooth, crisp, lighter carbonation. More dry finish, Tasty double IPA. Pretty smooth and easy drinking for the ABV.

b3shine (5493) - Indiana, USA - MAY 8, 2014
Bottle to snifter (shared with the group; thanks DuffMan). Looks solid; light though. A transparent gold with eggshell head that quickly dissipates into thin lacing. Smells of bitter hops and pale malt. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. Not bad.

hag14 (102) - Hafnarfj÷r­ur, ICELAND - APR 12, 2014
Golden with a nice white head. Not as bitter as expected but the bitterness seems to increase with every sip. Aromas of grapefruit, alchohol and flowers. Overall: 15/20.
