BeerBunker (709) - Burbank, Illinois, USA - APR 3, 2012
12oz bottle. Pours murky orange with a quickly dissipating white head. Aroma is of hops, caramel, grapefruit, and malt. Taste is of caramel hops soaked with grapefruit and some pine. Long lingering hoppy bitterness. A tasty beer, with a nice balance between the strong hop character and the malt backbone.

Pours a slightly hazy amber color with white head. Pine, citrus, light fruits, hop resin, and floral notes on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with a big hop bite. Delicious.

seymour (1406) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - JUL 21, 2014
Shared from a bottle at Jasonís anti-Homebrew Club Meeting. It poured a clear medium amber with sudsy white foam. True-to-style grapefruity American IPA traits. Not terribly bitter, emphasis on hoppy flavours not aroma. Medium body and carbonation, hoppy aftertaste. Decent but forgettable. Iím calling bullsh!t on the 9% abv and the 108 IBU claims. Thereís absolutely no way. Test it, youíll see.

islay (1078) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUL 15, 2014
12 oz. bottle, consumed on 7-14-14. Hoppy, yeasty aroma features scents of pine, caramel, peach, watermelon bubblegum, and some lemon and urine. Pours a somewhat hazy bronze with a moderate amount of taupe head. Produces long-lasting lacing. Flavors of pine, tonic water, minerals, and spices. A bit boozy. Dry finish. Medium body. Smooth in the palate. Pretty good overall, but Iíve had many better Double IPAs.

ChiGuy68 (405) - Illinois, USA - JUL 15, 2014
Tasted on tap at Mariaís Community Bar. It poured a beautiful hazy amber with a frothy off white head and streaky lacing. Hop and citrus nose that follows through on the tongue. A very enjoyable double IPA.

ben4321 (3827) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUL 13, 2014
Location: Draft at Jake Melnickís, 5/27/14

Aroma: The aroma is pine and citrus hops, resin, and some caramel
Appearance: It pours a clear orange-amber color with a mid-sized off-white head
Flavor: The flavor is fairly bitter with a some lighter sweetness for a little balance
Palate: The body is medium, it has a soft-to-average carbonation, and a long, dry finish
Overall Impression: I enjoyed this beer. Nice example of the style, maybe not a top-of-style example, but a nice one for sure.

Bottle shared by sloth. Aroma of strong citrus, grapefruit rinds, faint pine. Flavor followed, oranges too, earthy biscuits, faint caramel. Mouthfeel was only moderate for the style which made this pretty drinkable with moderate carbonation. A pretty solid dIPA. Thanks, Bert!

Dragonfly1 (487) - Colorado, USA - JUL 6, 2014
So very good. Bottle from the convenience store. Rich copper, aromas of orange and bread, like a fruit cake. The taste is outstanding, like a caramel, orange, bread pudding combination that works so well. Such a good balance of bready smooth malts and that orange peel bitterness. Some alcohol is present in the finish, would not have guessed 9% though. This is just a terrific beer.

I have to say I wasnít expecting this to be as good as it was. This DIPA is on par with the big boys.Outstanding sweet floral nose and strong hoppy taste. Very nice!
