jimhilt (2469) - Bow, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 3, 2013
Pours a four finger white head that fades slowly to a thin layer leaving a good lace. Clear amber color. Good carbonation and medium bodied. Caramel and hop nose and flavor is a good blend of caramel and grapefruit hops with a lingering bitter aftertaste. 12oz bottle, from Gift Specialists Oceanside, California.

Klar å ljus färg. Doftar blåa bär. Lite grästoner och jordkällare. Underbart frisk fruktig smak. Fantastiskt balanserad och lagom med kolsyra.. Faan va de kan göra fantastiska IPA i USA jippi.

Chipper (303) - Red Lion, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 25, 2013
Hazy amber pour with a small tan head. Aroma pine and citrus, then some bitter hops. Smooth but a little thick, so you know it?s a serious brew. But it is still smooth and dangerously drinkable.

50belair (2955) - Florida, USA - JUN 20, 2013

maekchu (2733) - Hirakata, JAPAN - JUN 20, 2013
Bottle from Yamaichi. Deep, pleasant citrusy nose. Hazy orange/straw, thick-bubbled head. Solid but restrained bitterness in initial / great tang in mid, and then it goes to balance / good caramel finally comes out in the finish / endless hop tracks on the tongue. Medium-heavy body. Full and satisfying. Very nice example of this West Coast style.

ruthlessjess (3) - Lihue, Hawaii, USA - JUN 13, 2013 does not count
Pleasant aroma when first poured but the essence fades quickly Citrusy, and floral aromas. Dark gold color, poured relatively clear, good carbonation, white Lacy head. Big bold hop flavor at first taste, followed by mellow malts, and a lingering dry bitterness in the back. Full mouth feel. Good Big IPA...but I would definitely classify it as a double not an imperial! ;)

jstraw (1946) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 6, 2013
Orange with modest, creamy, off-white head, light legs / Muted, lightly cooked nose of citrus, pine, brown sugar, some skunkiness / Medium to full body, a touch thin but still lush & creamy, sweet, some chew, good balance with distinct hop bite and bitter finish / Sweet, rich flavors of pine, candied sugar, caramel, orange peel, grapefruit, pineapple / A solid, if not particularly distinguished, double ipa.

NordicV (1386) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - JUL 2, 2013
Kopparfärgad öl med ett kraftigt gult skum. Mycket persika och tropisk frukt i doften tillsammans med lättare toner av tallbarr. Mycket karamell som balanserar upp den fruktiga beskan. En ganska stiltypisk DIPA.
