Draft (many) @ Rackhouse. Nose is just sticky, spicy, floral hops. Awesome nose. Flavor is surprisingly a little subdued compared to the nose, an upfront blast of florals and then a slight fruitiness before a total bash of bitterness. Little sweet/malt to back this up, so itís generally just hop juice (albeit very, very tasty hop juice). If youíre in a hop-jones mood, this is great, if youíre looking for a complex, balanced IIPA, look elsewhere. That being said, itís still delicious.

On tap at Barrels & Bottles. Gold and clear appearance with a white head. Aroma of resinous hops, pine, grass, light herbs, biscuits and toasted grains. Similar flavor, medium to heavy bitterness balanced by light malty sweetness. Medium to full body.

Fresh bottle from Weber St. Pours a hazy gold, very thin head, but heavy lacing. Super citrusy aroma. Lemon, orange, and a hint of lime. Taste is sticky sweet citrus, like orange and lemon candies. Thick, creamy mouthfeel. Big sticky, sweet resinous finish.

mcberko (5919) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 31, 2013
22 oz. bottle, sent from robloc303 (thanks a lot, Rob), pours a murky opaque rusted orange with a small white head. Nose brings out a mix of tropical fruits and dank, juicy hops. Flavour is juicy and refreshing, with loads of tropical fruits (mangos and peaches), big resinous hops, dank earthy notes, and a big fat caramel malt backing to hold everything together. Extremely dank, juicy and hoppy, with a mild astringency. Excellent balance. The big malt profile isnít too much in this case, as the hops are boldly positioned. Great IIPA.

presario (4580) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 25, 2013
Hard to find which beer you had a year ago when you canít ready your own writing. Amber. hazy. Light head. Nice citrus nose. A little heavy. Strawberry cream finish and aftertaste makes it unique. (or me drunk)

DenverLogan (770) - MileHi, Colorado, USA - DEC 14, 2013
From a 22 oz bottle, but Iíve had this many times over the years, mostly from growler re-fills. Pours a cloudy apricot. Sweet and perfume hop aroma. Significant mouthfeel. Flavors of pink grapefruit rind, straw hops, amber malts, light pepper. Overall big, bold, bitter but tasty.

Bottle. Pours a darker gold with smaller head. Floral hop aroma and strong malt flavors. Not overly bitter. A very good double IPA.
