glennmastrange (2405) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - MAY 11, 2015
Bottle. Moderate light bread and grain for the ,alt, light pine and turpentine for the hops, light dough for the yeast, with hints of medicine and sulfur. Head is average size, fizzy/frothy, off-white with excellent lacing and is fully lasting. Color is sparkling clear medium amber. Flavor starts lightly sweet and acidic, then finishes lightly to moderately sweet and moderately bitter. Palate is on the fuller side of medium, oily with a soft carbonation and a lightly alcoholic finish. Out of balance and not so great aromas settles this DIPA into mediocrity.

It pours a cloudy golden orange. It has a full white head. It has a sweet, citrus aroma with hints of malt. It has a sweet, bitter taste with citrus flavors, floral elements, and caramel malts. The carbonation gives it bite, but it is not that bitter on the palate.

Like most crown valley beers, this one isnít all that impressive. Very strong, very alcoholic. The bitterness and the pine are a bit too aggressive.

Beer of month club. Pours a cloudy gold with a one finger white head that recedes but leaves a thin white film. Nice nose - pine, citrus. Taste of some citrus (grapefruit) and bitter hops. Good, but not great, double IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bif (1638) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - SEP 6, 2014
Bottle. Poirs a clear dark copper color with a thick head and some lacing. Aroma of grapefruit, malt a bit of fruit sweetness. Taste of grapefruit, malt sweetness and bit of fruit. Nice bitterness and a fairly dry finish. Medium body, crisp and refreshing wiith a subtle hop presence. Enjoyable beer without all of the hype.

emacgee (4307) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - AUG 11, 2014
Pours a dense but clean hard amber with two fingers of dense and creamy head. The nose is very rich, hop candy and a heavy sweetness, lots of pine resin, some alcohol, citrus rind, burnt sugar, and malty. Dense in the mouth. Flavor isnít bad, I just quickly grow weary of it. Very heavy and dense flavors, pine resin and alcohol for sure. Lots of body with strong and heavy flavors. Rich and dense malt sweetness and heavy hop resin character.

alexanderj (3399) - Branson, Missouri, USA - AUG 3, 2014
Bottle; poured a nice orange amber color with an off white head. Aroma of orange, citrus and toast. Pleasant flavor, good orange flavor. Mildly hopped, solid caramel backbone. Very easy to drink.

pineypower (2689) - Pine Barrens, New Jersey, USA - JUL 3, 2014
Bottle from Canalís. Pours out a decent copper color with a two finger off white head. Aroma is of some grassy/citrus hops, light sweet caramel malts, bread and some light cardboard and alcohol. Taste is a lot of one dimensional up front hop bitterness, develops a little as it warms, but just kind of generic with sweet sticky alcohol balance. eh....

keanex (1629) - Atco, New Jersey, USA - JUN 8, 2014
Appearance: Very lightly hazy with a orange hue with golden edges. The light tan head is towering over the body with excellent retention.
Aroma: Grapefruit and orange comes to mind with a splash of pineapple and mango. The malt base comes through slightly, adding caramel and biscuit.
Taste: This is a nicely balanced IIPA with a lot of hop flavor. The malt base is a tad thin at times and a tad thick with a distinct homebrew quality to it. Caramel and a slight nuttiness are noticed mostly by the end with a mild bitterness and a candied orange citrus finish. Hints of grapefruit and floral overtones are noted. The finish is homebrew reminiscent though.
Palate: Medium bodied, moderately carbonated.
Overall: The more I drink this the less I want to. Itís not really a bad beer, but it definitely lacks the polish of a professionally brewed beer. This has homebrew quality written all over it. It feels slightly underattenuated and thereís too much of a lingering chalkiness to this.

EithCubes (5206) - New Jersey, USA - JUN 2, 2014
Bottle. Nose is very strong citrus rind with some caramel and a little dank wood (pine), mild spice and floral caress. Dull, dusky orange body with a dense, rocky beige head. Taste again very hoppy, medium bitterness with lots of bitter orange peel and sweet orange peel, perfumed essence of orange with some tangerine, apricot, pine, spice, lavender; oily full body is very crisp without being too aggressive, juicy, sweet to overcome the bitterness but not cloying or really all that sugary. Has a great density and a claustrophobic fruity hop character that I like here (a little like immersion in invasive honeysuckle). No warmth or burn, but heft behind the fun.
