Ratman197 (9454) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - JAN 5, 2006
On tap @ Bull and Bush 2004 vintage poured a clear reddish brown with a small but lasting amber head. Aromas of carmel, citrus and pine. Palate was light bodied, dry and resiny. Flavors of pine, toffee and some earthiness with a hint of citrus and a lingering dry finish.

Rastacouere (6119) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 10, 2005
Light bronze shade, quickly fading head. Mostly complex hop aromatics (floral, piney), but not melting with the sticky malts to the best of their potential. Indeed in mouth, the big crystals are struck upon by pine needles that grasp the tongue and brings it into the desert – DRY! I’m surprised that no one seems to mention alcohol as this one had it in fumes, whatever the ABV. Served a bit young?

Draft in a tulip at the brewpub, 9/11/06: Midnight red with an eruption of tan foam; not much of an aroma, surprisingly, because this is soup-thick with a warming richness, almost like an eisbock more than an IPA. Doesn’t hold a candle to Great Divide’s Titan, but this is good.

onceblind (3933) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 18, 2013
Hazy dark amber with a thin foamy head. Nose is amazing with notes of sticky toffee, earthy nuts, and piney hop resin with a light bubblegum tone. Like a toffee beery blow pop. Flavor is rich and malty and complex and nutty and boozy and just...right. Lots of pecan and toffee tones with a lovely backing sweetness. Subtle bitter tones with a little grassy hop cone flavor. Nice warm booziness to bring back the boozy toffee nuttiness. So dang lovely.

Aubrey (3430) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - OCT 5, 2004
Draft at the brewery: Clear and deep, dark red. Great, lasting head and sticky lace. Smooth, soft and thick on the tongue with a mild carbonation. Chewy-sweet malt base (but not too sweet) with tasty notes of caramel and toffee. Rich, intense hops; wafty notes of grass and a little pine and flowers. A little citrus, too. Similar to some barleywines I’ve had. Very good beer. Feel lucky if you find it on tap when you visit ... I always seem to just miss it. Last time I went, it was tapped out soon after I ordered a pint.

Terminus (3216) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - APR 11, 2005
tap at falling rock tap house-plurs a dark orange hue with a smooth off-white head. i can smell this beer from 2 feet away-huge array of citric tones going on. the aroma even cut through the smoke in the bar! thats impressive! Big hop notes predominate with some good malt backing. Flavors go back and forth between IIPA and a hoppy Barleywine. Crazy flavors-citric/pine hops, caramel malt base and some good yeast action. im impressed! VERY well balanced. a true winner from Colorado!

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - DEC 25, 2003
Man-Man Double IPA. GABF 2003. Poured amber in color with minimal head. A nice, sweet Double IPA. Aroma of hops and flowers. Nice mouthfeel and finish.

harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - JUL 17, 2006
MMmmm, this was almost candy sweet! Lots of flavor, huge amounts of hops and a rich double sweet and tasty malt profile. Lots of rich citrus and grapefruit, and a lip numbing bit of fresh pine needles. Lots of pie crust maltiness, that just melts and matches perfectly with the hops. This is a huge beer to be that well balanced, but it is. This is one of the best of this style that I have ever tried.

On tap at the brewpub, brewed again in honor of their 42nd Anniversary. Pour is deep amber with a small cream-colored head and decent lacing. Sweet malty, lightly caramelly, grapefruit, orange peel, somewhat spicy, a hint of alcohol, and bready aroma. Taste is big bitter fruit peels, grapefruit heavy hops, sweet caramel, toasted bread, spicy hops, earthy, and cracker with a medium bitter finish. Sticky mouthfeel with high carbonation. Not a bad beer, but definitely not what you would expect from a DIPA, but the alcohol is hidden very well.
