Emeister84 (1032) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JAN 15, 2013
Citrusy, piney, resinous, and floral hop aromas. Gold, with low retaining, white head. Predominantly bitter, but well-balanced and lifted by malty tones that come through at the end. Medium-full bodied, with average carbonation, and a long, bitter finish.

HighlanderOne (1016) - Bergen County, New Jersey, USA - SEP 19, 2014
On tap at Brewer’s Cask in Baltimore. Light hops and wheat aroma. Golden with slight lacing head. Mostly floral hop with some citrus and pine as well. Also malt, wheat and honey flavors. Not quite as intense as other IPAs, which makes it nicely drinkable. Good stuff - nice to have Devils Backbone again.

EithCubes (5000) - New Jersey, USA - AUG 30, 2014
Bottle 05.28.14. Nose is strong citrus (mainly tart grapefruit) with caramel, a little dusty. Pours rich, deep golden with carbonation a tick above average and a tight off-white head. Taste oily, perfumed with hops, strong citrus with medium bitterness; moderately dry with lemon and grapefruit, faint resin but more distinct hop oil. Caramel and malt in general weaken in the presence f such strong perfume. Fullish body a bit heavy, but a solid hop bomb for this strength, very robust all-around.

alobar (2804) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 22, 2014
Clear orange copper color with minimal white head. Aroma of pine, toasted malt, and citrus-some metallic aroma. Pine, citrus, and a hop bite that is sharp, but seems watered down. Okay beer.

Transfer from BA review on 9-9-12- Poured from bottle into pint glass Appearance – Pours a medium golden color with a huge, just off-white head. The head is thick and beautiful and has wonderful retention. It eventually fades however to give a great level of lacing. Smell – The smell was a wonderfully sweet and lightly hopped smell. The sweetness was of a nice mango aroma mixed with caramel and some citrus. The hop aromas were of an earthy and grapefruit aroma, which complemented the sweet quite well. Taste – The taste begins with a bready and very lightly caramel sweetened base. At the start there are hop flavors of an earthy and pine nature. As the taste advances toward the middle a grapefruit hop flavor combines with the earthy and pine hops. This bready and hop flavor takes the taste to its finish. In the end a very long lasting bitter earthy and pine hop flavor are left to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The beer is very chewy with a nice creaminess and a slightly below average carbonation level. The creaminess and chewiness is great for the bready and hop flavors and makes for a great feeling brew. Overall – While the nose is deceiving in its sweetness, it is a very nice feeling bitter IPA. The hop aftertaste is one of the longest lingering I have had for such a low abv brew and is rather pleasant. A very nice IPA.

Dogbrick (8237) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 3, 2014
On draught at the Hyatt in DC. The beer is a clear copper color with a medium white head that dissipates steadily to a film. Strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of hops, citrus and malt. Light to medium body with flavors of hops, citrus and grainy malt. The finish is moderately bitter with a short hoppy aftertaste. Decent overall.
