Great hoppy aroma. Pours clear orange/bronze with a one finger white head. Good malty balance to the hops, actually doesn’t seem that bitter to me.

Strong taste on the palate. Much more happy than the dogfish head 60. One of my faves.

16 oz draft at Joe Squared at the Inner Harbor location in Baltimore, standard pint glass. Clear golden brown to amber with off-white head. Aromas of citrus, caramel, floral notes. Tastes of citrus, honey, sweet fruit, floral hops. Medium body with a dry finish. Medium carbonation, slightly juicy and syrupy mouthfeel. Doesn’t really stand out for me with all of the other better DIPAs/IIPAs available.

jdavidh (144) - California, USA - JUL 12, 2014
Earthy, woodsy aroma. Great golden color. Surprisingly sweet taste, with more wood and floral notes. Very mild bitterness for such a heavily hopped beer. Quite good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Ótima segunda cerveja, deliciosa gelada. Forte e bem característica. Melhor double ipa até agora. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Niksko (307) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUL 9, 2014
Pours a cloudy dark orange with some rocky white head. Nose is orange marmalade, pineapple juice, caramel, raisin. Flavor is loads of citrus, marmalade, really fresh pineapple juice, with a slight herbaceousness and generous grapefruit on the finish. High side of medium body, standard carbonation, slight sugar coating on your lips as you drink.

On draught, in bottles, had many times. Excellent IPA, and after it sits in a basement for two years, turns into an amazing barley wine.

I’ve heard so much about it. I got the recipe and made some before I ever tried it. Mine was better. Yes, it’s good but not the best IPA out there. Lot of hype. Try Brew Cocky or Maharajah.

HuskerTan (451) - Holdrege, Nebraska, USA - JUL 5, 2014
Bottle. A- Chex mix, caramel, biscuits, bready, malty, fruitcake, spices, citrus. A- Orange color, clear liquid, white head. T- Caramel, citrus, raisins, spices, bitter, malty, salt, bread. P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, smooth finish. O- A goodIPA. I was expecting an aggressive hop profile but it was surprisingly smooth and ungodly complex. There were so many aromas and flavors going on, I could never list them all. Definitely need to try the 60 min and 120 min now.

Incredibly overpowering aroma from the bottle. , floral, earthy, citrus, hay. Has a thin pronounced taste spend across the pallette.
