TheBeerGod (5309) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - JUN 8, 2011
Bottle. Amber pour with a tall, dense, fluffy beige head. Huge pine, citrus oils, spicy hops and chewy caramel in the nose. Taste is a hop bomb! Resinous piney hops, citrus oils, spicy hops, floral hops, chewy caramel, and sweet malt make up the bulk of this beauty. There’s also tropical fruit, peaches and tangerine. Body is medium-full with a creamy carbonation. Oily and bitter throughout. Finishes with more chewy caramel, sweet malt, peach, light melon, pine resins, orange rind, grapefruit juice and spicy hops.

Dedollewaitor (14084) - Odense, DENMARK - JUN 8, 2011
Bottle @ Odense Tasting, June 2011. Pours unclear amber with a creamy white head on top. Grape and pine. Smooth and full bodied. Dry and hoppy flavor with a bit of peach and caramel. Fine . .

bhensonb (11362) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 7, 2011
Bottle shared by Marcus. Pours hazy orange gold with a creamy off-white head. Odors of pine and fresh fruit. Flavor is pale stone fruit, pine, and arguably citrus. Very American. Very delicious.

marcus (6680) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUN 6, 2011
Bottle from Belmont Station. Pours cloudy orange with an attractive off-white head and a fruity pine aroma. There is a delicious caramel malt flavor with seriously citrus hopping. A very interesting and tasty brew.

5000 (6298) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JUN 4, 2011
Bottle:   Heavy sedimented amber, large frothy white head, fairly nice lacing.   Bright citrusy nose, candied even.   Otherwise some hops and citrus peel.   Candyish like hoppiness up front, citrusy, rindish, not real biting.   Instead flavorful and semi-sweet.   Seems most imported IIPAs these days are not the bruiser IIPAs that I get here state side, which is a nice change of pace.   However, they are also not all that malty either.   However, this one is very smooth, nice malt base, has a little bit of resin to it.   Semi-sweet, hop flavor without being bitter, with a citrus background.   Better than a lot of hop bombs I gotta say.   Odd I found this in June when its a Christmas beer.   Or is it?

GandGKevin (920) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - MAY 31, 2011
Pours a murky amber with a thick persistent head and lots of floaties. Spicy and cirtus aromas. Spice and citrus hop flavors. Overall a very good DIPA.

thebeertourist (4890) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 30, 2011
On tap at Ørsted Ølbar. Cloudy amber with a steady head. Nice fruity citrus aroma, hints of grapefruit, passion fruit and apple. Delicious fruity hop bitterness with enough caramel to provide the backbone. Full-bodied. Excellent.

Dogbrick (8507) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 27, 2011
Sample at the Ale Wine & Spirits Evil Twin tasting on 05/19/2011. Pours a hazy amber-gold color with a medium thick off-white head that burns away to an outer ring eventually. Rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of piney hops and citrus. Medium body with flavors of citrusy hops, earthy malt and pine. The finish is earthy with some fruit left behind. Hopefully the 10% is still around to try because this one did not do much for me.

bluejacket74 (1358) - Reynoldsburg, Ohio, USA - MAY 26, 2011
16.9 ounce bottle. Served in a snifter, the beer pours a cloudy orange/amber color with an inch and a half frothy off-white head. Head retention is good, and there is a lot of lacing left on the glass. Aroma is citrusy (grapefruit, orange peel), pine and a bit of floral hops, along with some sweet malt. It tastes mostly like citrusy (grapefruit, lemon and orange peel) and pine hops, and a bit of malt. There’s also a nice lingering bitter hoppy finish. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it’s somewhat sticky and slick with good carbonation. I think this is a good brew, now I’m looking forward to trying their other beers.

Bottle sample at the Evil Twin tasting at Ale Wine & Spirits on 5/19/11. Pours clear gold with a thick off-white head. Piney hop aroma with grassy hops and citrus. Very crisp on the nose. Dank and soapy hop flavor with a spicy hop finish.
