Pours golden amber with thin white head and minimal lace. Nose is delightful with citrus honey and grass. Medium bodied and well balanced with immediate toast, light brown sugar, moving to a highly floral and citrusy hop. Imperceptible alcohol finishes this great double.

jonno (2130) - JAPAN - SEP 15, 2012
Good solid easy drinking DIPA. Hides 9% really well. Well balanced too. Lots of citrus, pine and musty leafy vegetal aromas. Same in the mouth with the balance of biscuit toffee. Good, honest beer.

Very nice with a full hop experience. Pine resin aroma, some grapefruit and lemon and some grass. The flavor is almost entirely citrus, esp. grapefruit. Lacks a bit of balance that could have been provided by more caramel.

Bottle shared by Thorpe429. Thanks Mike! The beer is orange and slightly hazy, with a decent sized white head that leaves a fair amount of lacing on the tulip glass. Aromas include hops, dry citrus and floral scents. The taste is slightly sweet, with a dank hop presence. Alcohol presence is disguised very well. The finish is not as dry or bitter as is customary in a DIPA. Overall, a pretty tasty brew, and one I would have again. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 04-23-2011

fletchfighters (1010) - AUSTRALIA - AUG 14, 2012
A-- Poured a clear yellow color. Pour resulted in a 2 finger white head. Kept its shape quite well for a good period of time before slowly receding to one finger. Little strips of lacing with this. More visible carbonation than I expected. S-- Citrus. Lots of citrus. No Carmel smell at all. Just Lemon peel, Orange and grapefruit. Fresh fruit citrus salad T-- Pungent Grapefruit and orange with some lemon. M-- Big aggressive grapefruit and orange. Very fresh taste. Long lasting grapefruit feel. Little bit of lemon and lime kick in the end. Also mixed with orange and grapefruit. Lots of acid to this. Starts off medium and finishes heavy. Perfect carbonation for the style. D-- 9% ABV?? Really. Extremely well hidden beer.

Birthday beer from Alyssa! Delicious DIPA. Pours light gold, slight haze. Little to no head. Light citrus hops on the nose - grapefruit, resin, slight green apple. Delicious floral hop flavor, smooth with just enough bite. Little to no malt sweetness.

Light yellow with a white head. Nose is grapefruit, bitter, lightly sticky, and sweet. Thick palate, chewy fruity hops, sweet, and a smooth finish.

(22oz bomber thanks to jjfoodie) clear light gold, sparse white bubbles. Nose of sweet candied citrus, honey, Light alcohol, bit of chlorine, spruce, rich. Taste of pine but not really bitter, ruby red grapefruit, light agave. Medium body, spicy linger perhaps from the alcohol.
