Hazy and golden orange in color. The aroma has floral and strong citrus notes from American hops. The mouth-feel is medium and could be describe as just shy of refreshing. Noticeably hoppy and bitter although not to the level of an imperial IPA.

Pours a hazy medium golden with a nice white head. Aroma is floral hops. This beer is pretty hoppy, but also has a nice creamy texture and a bit of sweetness. This beer is by no means crisp in the mouth so it might be a bit hard to drink on a hot day, but the smooth creamy texture works for it. If you are an IPA fan this one is worth trying.

this was a great palate cleanser, if you can believe .. . Pours a medium honey colour, great foam, great lacing- like flying in a cloud .. . bitter honey, resin, and spruce .. . easy to put down, unlike crack .. . would like to try more from this brewery .. . Heís gotten a lot better.. - Way better.

22oz bottle pours a lightly hazy, deep orange with one ring of spitty white head. Nose is peach, hoppy, sweet, oranges. Flavor is sweet, orange, grapefruit, metallic, honey, a touch of flower pollen. Medium bodied, lightly bitter finish. Not outstanding.

Camons (5660) - Hasselager, DENMARK - FEB 28, 2011
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

Suttree (5073) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 20, 2011
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 (8414) - 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.
