This was a limited run that quickly gathered a cult following of depraved devotees. So much so that we had to start making it all year long. Big flavor. Makes other beers taste like tap water. Beer Geek Note: We started using Warrior hops in this brew in place of Chinook.

BMan1113VR (7917) - Los Angeles, California, USA - FEB 5, 2010
Growler brought back by BarZigKin, thanks! Pours with a large white head and clear copper-golden-amber body. Aroma is pine, herbal and orange light hops with a hint of pepper and caramel. Taste is alcohol, hops, citrus, caramel and a touch thin. Dry and tasty. Very drinkable DIPA. Their best beer!

nimbleprop (7560) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - OCT 24, 2012
Sampled at GABF. Pours a clear gold with some spitty head. Nose is OK, pine, honey, citrus, earthy. Flavor is OK too, sweet, malty, oranges. Medium bodied, orangey finish. A little bland, needed more citrus pop.

onceblind (7529) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 29, 2013
Clear copperish gold with a persistent foamy white head. Nose is dank and earthy hoppy with a funky bitter pine/floral/grapefruit resin nose, also with a citrusy caramelly backbone. The flavor is full and wonderful with lots of unbitter grapefruit sweetness, some caramel, and resiny bitterness with some floral undertones. Ends a bit leafy and floral with a lovely resin aftertaste.

jackl (7070) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 3, 2014
Bottle from Guess Who?, Bentonville. Slightly hazy deep orange pour with a large frothy white head. Pretty much a bunch of caramel-slathered cardboard on the nose. Not a great start. Flavors are pretty subdued. Malt-forward. Loads of caramel with a bit of hot peach fruit leather. More stale cardboard. Pretty boozy, somewhat oily. Not good.

Cunningham (7058) - Halden, NORWAY - JUN 1, 2015
Almost clear deep golden color with a off white head. Fruity, resin and hoppy aroma. A bit to fruity. Medium + body. A bit unbalanced. To much over on the sweet side. Tropical, malty, grapefruit hoppy and a bit resinous flavor.
[Bottle from a trade with RobertDale]

bytemesis (6984) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - APR 7, 2013
Bottle - thanks Mora2000 for state #49! Pours hazy amber with a small off-white head that dissipates quickly with good lacing. Aroma is caramel, pine. Flavor is the same, medium sweet and lightly bitter; piney hops and caramel malts dominate. Bitterness increases to the finish and becomes slightly metallic. Medium body, oily mouthfeel. Actually not bad, likely a bit old. Bottle was notched "07" but I am not sure which year, or if that was a bottled on or a best buy date.

Strykzone (6766) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JAN 11, 2011
Sampled at an ESBLS tasting. Pretty much a classic beer. Grapefruit and caramel. Some nice fruit. Alcohol is not noted. A nice IIPA. Wish I would have taken better notes on this one.

Braudog (6385) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - DEC 27, 2010
Bottle. Light amber color, but the beer delivers a huge floral aroma and flavor component. Bit bitter, but the floral perfume is predominate. Big DIPA, but not overpowering. (#4046, 12/16/2010)

Flaske spandert av Cunningham og delt med flere 30 Mai 15. Mørk gylden. Lavt skum. God søt aroma av frukt & bær. Lettdrikkelig med sammensatt fruktsmak. Melon & syrlig frukt.
