markwise (4543) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - JUN 8, 2011
Thanks to IBrew2or3 for the share. Pours hazy orange-amber with a huge off-white head. Nose is malt, orange, citrus pith, with some citrus flesh, and big grapefruit bitterness. Flavor is similar with sweet malt, and syrupy orange flesh. A bit thicker than the average IIPA in mouthfeel.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 8, 2011
Dark coppery colored, little yellow head. Rich hopped aroma with dry, slight white wine grape tone with this sour cranberry, dry and bitter hops here with pine. Medium bodied. Flavor is more sweet with pine dominating, thin yeast with flowers and grass. Aftertaste is well hopped, slightly soapy and grassy.

From a bottle poured a dark brown color with a lot of head. Strong lasting hoppy flavor with a lingering aftertaste.

jtclockwork (8897) - , New Jersey, USA - JUN 6, 2011

Cybercat (3490) - Georgia, USA - JUN 4, 2011
Aroma is firm and hoppy with a yeasty undertone and a citrus hint. The sample I got fizzed like nobodyís business, so be careful if you have this in a bottle! It pours a hazy dark honey-golden that is barely translucent and has a thick, frothy, rather persistent light golden tan head. Flavor is decently hoppy with a firm touch of evergreen, a subtle citrus undertone that mainly grapefruit plus a little sour orange, and a whisper of sweetness. Finish is hoppy, a little fruity and just slightly bitter. Texture is quite fizzy and lively, leaving a nice tingle. OK, maybe on the overpriced side, but still a more than adequate Imperial IPA.

5000 (6298) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JUN 3, 2011
Bottle:   Caramel, a little dirty and very hazy, huge sudsy sandy head, spotty lacing.   Sweet pine and hops on the nose, slightly sweet citrus peel too.   Faint white grape juice.   Dull hops, heavy, body is moderate, some barrel characters, white wine on the exit.   Interesting beer.   Has a bit of a powdery sweetness.   Hops arenít biting at all.   Body and mouthfeel are smooth, yet fairly moderate.   The 10% ABV seems well hidden.   A little spritzy on the tongue.   It has this bright mustiness that comes right up front, but goes away quickly.   Interesting take on the style.

bluejacket74 (1383) - Reynoldsburg, Ohio, USA - JUN 3, 2011
11.2 ounce bottle. Served in a snifter, the beer pours a cloudy burnt orange/brown color with about an inch frothy off-white head. Head retention is very good, and thereís a lot of lacing left on the glass. Aroma is mostly pine and citrusy (grapefruit) hops, along with some wood, grapes/Chardonnay and caramel malt. Taste is similar to the aroma, but thereís also some herbal flavors and peppery spice noticable. Also, all the flavors seem to mesh well together, with no one flavor really overpowering the others. Thereís both hops and grapes/wine noticable in the finish. Mouthfeel/body is medium, itís a bit slick and creamy with good carbonation. I think this is an interesting brew, I liked it a lot.

ClubGonzo (4227) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUN 3, 2011
Bottle. Pours a hazy brown body with a massive light beige head. Aroma is sweet mango hops with hints of muscat grapes and kiwi. Taste is more in the realm of earthy hops, black tea and grass. I canít really say I notice the white wine much, except for some grape-like tones well hidden along with the high ABV. Nice blend, and a rather smooth DIPA all in all.

Pours hazy brown with a large tan head. Smells of floral hops, earthy, peppery. Tastes of resin, spicy, sweet citrus, peppery. Wine grapes present themselves as the beer warms.
