Une belle couleur de cuivre avec un tête généreux beige. L’arôme déborde d’houblon avec un parfum d’agrumes et pin. En bouche c’est un célébration d’houblon. L’amertume est bien équilibré avec un peu du malt et un douceur légère.

From bottle. Amber appearance; little head. Sweet nose. Taste is boozy, almost wine-like with nice hop character. Meets Dogfish’s lofty expectations. Recommended.

manuelMTL (66) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 4, 2014
From 12 oz bottle in tulip glass. Pour is clear amber with a golden touch. Head disappears quickly. Nose is heavy dark fruits with a lot of dough. A bit boozy. In the mouth, it’s an IIPA with a heavy body, a long medium pine bitterness and a huge malt sweetness. Fresh bread and dried apricots. A hint of chocolate is also perceptible. Heavy beer that is surprisingly easy to drink at 9 ABV.

Jesusthug (3) - North Carolina, USA - SEP 3, 2014 does not count
Aroma of a stout. Does have a Dark Fruity taste. Heavy body and finishes very creamy on the pallet. A overall good IPA and probably the best heavy bodied IPA on the market.

Whatup14 (724) - Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 3, 2014
Bouteille 355ml. Couleur orangé translucide, mousse beige crémeuse et insistante, laissant une belle dentelle. Arôme de pamplemousse, houblon résineux, malt, alcool, pointe de vanille. Goût d’alcool, pamplemousse, malt caramel, plutôt sucré, caramel, amertume intense. Carbonatation moyenne, corps moyen-dense.

Putting other IPA's to shame, well balanced and all round perfection. An IPA for any time of year or day. Rich golden colour, almost sweet in flavour with just the right amount of hop at the finish.

loco_gallego (51) - SWITZERLAND - AUG 31, 2014
Ambrée or-miel, fine mousse blanc-cassé. Carbonation moyenne. Bière ultra-limpide, qui fait sa beauté. Arôme fruité agrumes-orange, pin, nez très frais et arômatique. En bouche peu arômatique, un peu résineux puis l’amertume des malts. Fin de bouche un peu trop alcoolisée et peu amère. Bière assez ronde, ormis l’alcool trop présent à mon goût. Vu les autres commentaires, les arômes ont peut-être perdu de leur qualité...

SimonTja (261) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 28, 2014
Citrusy hops, quite a lot of caramel, straight forward tropical fruit, grapefruit being the standing out. Very well balanced, not a harsh bitterness, but would be more fruity and more outstanding. Good double IPA.

bellco33 (317) - Willington, Connecticut, USA - AUG 28, 2014
On tap in pint glass: Pours amber with a thick white head with good retention. Aroma of banana, caramel, and resin. Taste is very well balanced, the malt is present but is not overwhelming due to the strong presence of piney hops. Smooth mouthfeel, medium to heavy body, medium carbonation. Pretty nice beer but still pretty malty.

caiazpa (2) - Virginia, USA - AUG 28, 2014 does not count
This is my preferred IIPA. A little sweetness but the citrusy hops balance it well. Not a bitter hop bomb but definitely hop forward. 12oz bottle poured into tulip.
