bhensonb (11488) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 2, 2011
Tap at Beer Revolution. Pours clear amber. Strong hop aroma - fruit-floral-resin. Med+ body. Flavor is very mixed hop. floral, fruit, citrus, resin - burns the tongue just a bit. Quite a bitter finish. Boldness rewards the brave brewer. Brilliantly hoppy ale.

Initial smell is big citrus. Cannot wait to taste. Then it gets all muddled. The citrus evaporates. Becomes a pretty strong brew that grows harder to drink.

BMan1113VR (7868) - Los Angeles, California, USA - FEB 17, 2011
On tap at FO. Pours with a clear golden bronze body and a fluffy, off-white head. Aromas of candied orange, spicy, citrus and alcohol. Flavor is citrusy with a lot of orange, spicy and a bitter finish. Linger bready/biscuity malt profile. Spicy. Gets a bit hot (alcohol) and sweeter as it warms. Lively bubbles. A bit on the sweeter side of things for a west coast DIPA.

Nik925 (759) - USA - FEB 16, 2011
Cask. Onslaught of hops. Bitterness keeps pace but malt falls way behind. Though it is very bitter. Great floral of hop, almost tastes like a wet hop. The low carb keeps the hop nice and forward. Very pleased.
