Bottle @ Hotelroom, Denver. Pours golden with a creamy white head. Aroma of caramel, biscuit, pine, grapefriut, kiwi and melon. Taste malty caramel, biscuit. grapefruit. Medium body, soft carbonation, bitter finish. Well balanced IIPA, not as hoppy as some, but very enjoyable.280211

Man, thatís a sneaky 10.8% on this one. Anyway, The big thing I liked about this one was that it was pretty dry for an DIPA, without too much sweetness. A little bit sweet at first, then a dryish, bitter finish. Not overly heavy. Thanks to curtis for this one!

(draft 5/28/10). Cloudy light copper color. Medium off white head. Moderate citrus and pine hop aroma, with light malt. Flavor of the same, with moderate bitterness. Slick texture. Moderate carbonation. Fair lacing.

Sammy (8094) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 11, 2011
Had their popular DIPA on tap at the brewpub. Somewhat hyped hop bomb. More malts are needed to balance this, its just OK. A bit of lighter mouthfeel for the style. Yellow and lacey. Great aroma and still good drinkability.

UPDATED: NOV 21, 2013 Soft floral nose...resiny turning to some honey with heat...not very strong though but pleasant. It is quite hoppy but has a lot of sweetness to balance it out-I donít get a lot of distinctive malt, but it must be there. This is one sweet IPA. Palate is almost all up front, full body. Tasty brew. Iíll get it again. >>>rerate: bumping this up from my prior 3.7 of the original 7 Seas. Full bodied double IPA, definitely malty roundness. Big mango and other tropical fruit punch up front that I didnít recall previously.

On tap @ falling rock tap house pours a hazy tan orange with small off white head. Aroma has hops, pine, citrus, and butterscotch. Taste is similar to aroma, very sweet with mild bitter finish, sweet butterscotch and caramel throughout. Too sweet for me.

Pours a light orange hazy color. Has a large off white head which foams up quite nicely. I got this beer because it was brewed out in Colorado, where I am! Smells like pine needles and some nice pine resin. Taste is interesting. A bit of cardboard is mixed in with the pine resin. Not the greatest imperial ipa but not horrible. Would like it to be a bit more flavorful.

Purchased chilled bomber from liquor store. Big hop aroma, super fresh floral and citrus. Wonderful mouthfeel and flavorful malt, I was deceived by the aroma thinking this was going to be another one of those huge hop-bombs that I love so much. It was not! It had a rich malty character, nicely balanced by a complex, bitter hop profile, slightly sweet and crisp without a hint of alcohol (the label states 9%). It is refreshing to taste a DIPA moving towards a flavorful malty backbone that is not totally overpowered by hops. Very impressive beer.

Hazy orange pour with a pearl white head that recedes to a thin film at the surface. Aroma is caramel sweetness beneath a citrus/grapefruit canopy. Low carbonation, sweet up front and grapefruit bitter and dry on the finish, medium-full body. Not outstanding, but not flawed. Could be a bit more complex.
