3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Kurmaraja hooked this can up as an extra when he was just doing me a favor. Ryan is a cool cat.. I appreciate it amigo.
12oz can poured into my Stone Tap-Takeover goblet.. 2 finger off white head.. huge retention and lacing.. the brew is clear orange/amber.
Grassy/citrus hoppiness on the nose is muted by way too much pale malt and even a bit of a biscuity/lite caramel maltiness.. very malt forward for a DIPA.
Flavor pretty much mirrors the nose.. not a big enough bitter profile to balance the bigger than expected malts.. I would like waaay more hop presence and a much drier brew.
Body is too heavy and the carbonation seems too light.
Decent brew, but it definitely seems "East Coast".... too much residual maltiness and not nearly enough big-boned hoppiness.

I was extremely disappointed in this beer. I sampled this on draft the Railroad in Linfield. The beer poured a light orange color with a thin off-white head. The nose was big and powerful, with notes of alcohol, fruity hops, whiskey and sweet malts. The flavors and body were also very strong with grape, whiskey, alcohol and more sweet fruity hops. I didn’t sense an overwhelming flavor of hops, which should be there in a double IPA. This beer seemed to be more about upping the alcohol content and brewing a powerful and strong beer. The only time the hops really took center stage was in the finish and the aftertaste.

Can. Pours a hazy golden amber with a thin off-white head. Aroma of citrus, pine, grapefruit, orange pulp and caramel. Flavor of sweet pale malts, orange peel, pine resin, citrus and had a touch of caramel with a semi dry finish.

Thanks to my cousin! This is a sweet, weighty IPA. It is a little punchy and boozy, but is nicely complex on the palate. Quite good overall.

Can shared with DrSilverworm in May 2013 notes. Pours a hazy golden orange color with a medium sized off white head that leaves sticky lace. The aroma has a wonderful grapefruit citrus, resin, some dank hops, caramel and toasted bread. The flavor has thick grapefruit citrus, resin, some sweet caramel that cuts the bitterness a bit, toasted bread, long lasting bitterness through the finish. I would love to have this around in cans all of the time.

12 oz can from TheEpeeist. Dated 04/11/2014. Nose is pine resin, citrus, mango, and a hint of pineapple. Murky yellow orange with a medium cream head. Flavor is moderately bitter with plenty of resin and tropical fruits. Very nice beer from DC.

Drank from can. Hoppy resinous pinecone, sour lemon boozy esters. Taste is bitter hop resin, exotic fruit and citrus tartness. Really good.
