Pours a clean orange-ish color with an off white head. In the aroma, grapefruity hops, and a hint of spice, almost minty. In the taste, grapefruity hops, and small minty burn, and nice malt. A small bite but mainly smooth and medium bodied mouthfeel, with a small dry, grapefruity hop in the aftertaste. Hides ABV, nice big flavor, I really enjoyed this beer!

Hazy orange amber color in the sifter. Sticky lace left by sa short lived off white head. Big sticky hop resin nose with some tropical fruit and candied grapefruit. Thick, syrupy mouthfeel. This is a hop bomb. Resin, grapefruit juice, orange marmalade, and english muffin. The finish shows some grassy bitterness under all the rest. It makes my lips sticky.

Nephilium (1311) - Ohio, USA - JAN 13, 2013
This starts off with a big hop aroma, and pours a clear amber with a full white head. The flavor is bitter, with lots and lots of hops. Thereís just barely enough malt to keep it contained. Thereís a long lingering bitter finish. If you like hop bombs, this is one you should try.

Drake (8030) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - JAN 6, 2013
Bomber courtesy of Secret Santa jmikolich. Thanks! Pours a mostly clear amber color with a medium sized creamy slightly-offwhite head. Decent head retention. Aroma of citrus, candied citrus, earthy and piney hops with a solid caramel maltiness. The taste is earthy, piney hops, a bit of a tropical note, mango and melon particularly, and pale caramel malts. Medium bodied, strong lingering bitterness, just the faintest hint of booze. Nice beer.

Tmoney99 (10411) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 11, 2012
Draft - Cask. Poured clear copper color with an average frothy off-white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Medium to heavy complex hop aroma. Medium to full body with a slick texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy complex bitter flavor with a medium to heavy smooth bittersweet alcohol finish of long duration. A standout beer.

Sammy (8358) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 19, 2011
Bomber from brewery. Passable DIPA, but somewhat overated. Orange coloured body with low amount of head. Neutral aroma. Alcohol was hidde by the hops and malt, and got some orange flavour from the amarillo and summit, but not all that much. Finish was more malty and ordinary.

Bottle: pours thick, clear amber, off white head that recedes to a thin ring. Pineapple, apricot, honey, sweet malts on the nose. Taste- pine, sweet caramel malts, then boom with a big hop hit. pleasant, balanced. slick mouth feel. long lingering bitterness from the dry hopping. very drinkable. bravo.

Hopper (827) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - DEC 21, 2010
22 oz. brown bottle courtesy of miketd. A very clear golden beer with a small fast fading head. Itís appearance is not its greatest attribute. The aroma is outstanding. Big juicy hops bursting with citrus and pine. Fruity and maybe even some spice like cinnamon. The taste is very smooth going down and drinks like a lower ABV which it is not. Sweet at first then a lot of orange and other citrusí. Slightly spicy. This is a good DIPA with a phenomenal aroma and really surprised me.

Big thanks to Tyler for this bottle. First beer Iíve had from this brewery. Pours a crystal clear, deep amber with some bubbles streaming to the top and feeding a small creamy beige head that leaves some decent lacing on the sides. The aroma is heavy on the citrus hops with grapefruit and pineapples jumping out. Light bready malts and some caramel sweetness in the background but the hops are the star of the show in the nose and have a slightly astringent character to them. Taste has an initial blast of oranges and grapefruit, bitter and astringent on the palate, with a sugary sweet caramel backbone following on. The finish has a mixture of the bitter grapefruit and resinous pine hops. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with a little bit lower carbonation than I was expecting. This is certainly an impressive introduction to a new brewery for me - an aggressively hopped DIPA that still remains very easy to drink. Really good beer.

Tap at Beer Engine. Deep golden pour. The nose is intensely hoppy. Bright mango and tropical hoppiness. Fresh and incredibly hoppy. Light pale malt sweetness balanced by a soft peppery character. Bitterness is restrained, but the hoppiness certainly isnít. Fruity and chewy. An absolute hop assault, but it is really damn tasty.
