Capa (2627) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - JAN 5, 2011
Mildly hazy copper/orange with a large, white, rocky head. Aroma of powerful citrus hops, sugary malts, and mostly grapefruit. Flavor has a strong residual sweetness, grapefruit, citrus hops, thick caramel malt. A very sweet beer but thankfully a healthy dose of citrus to help balance this one out. Full bodied. One of the sweeter DIPAs I’ve had but a very good one.

thirdeye11 (6044) - Dallas, Texas, USA - DEC 31, 2010
(750ml bottle thanks to blutt59) clearish orange/amber with fine white bubbles. Nose of candied citrus, candi sugar, mossy, and rhubarb. Taste is all sugar, very few hops at all, all the fermentable sugars are left in this one.

Dorwart (2522) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - DEC 26, 2010
UPDATED: DEC 12, 2012 Thin white head of fine bubbles with light carbonation. One of the best and intense aromas out there with loads of hops in the aroma. Flowers and citrus with some oranges, tangerines and sweet malts. Color is a slightly hazy dark orange. Lots more splendid hops bitterness. Oranges, grapefruit, sweet caramel malts, a tad of roasted grains and some spices. Probably from the amarillo hops. Noticable alcohol presence and warming but not overpowering for a brew of this size. Very, very well balanced. A bit on the sweet side to offset the strong hops bitterness. A pretty darn good IIPA. And the fantastic thing about this brew is that I can get it for about $11-12 a growler here in NJ at times! An absolute steal!!!!

Bottle courtesy of jtclockwork. Pours rusty brown with a tan head. Smells of grapefruit, lemons, sage, perfumy. Tastes of caramel, some resiny hints, some sweet citrus. Finishes bitter and spicy.

HopBackDoc (474) - Hatboro, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 12, 2010
On draft at the brew pub. Pours a deep copper color with thin head. Aroma of citrus hops. Flavor was sticky sweet with citrus hops and a good malt base to back it up. A big hop bomb that has good depth and a nice lasting finish. Very nice, reminded me of Southern Tier’s Un-Earthly.

750 ml bottle. Pours a hazy golden orange with a nice white head. Really stanky nose- yesty, some dried fruit- grapefruit-, hops- citrus?-, alcohol. Body is full, sticky, great balance. What a big beer- I should have rated it before I drank most of it and started feeling groovy- definitely a triple IPA and not in a bad way: big beer with a huge hop profile but still manages a great balance, and somehow remain reminiscent of the IPA style without becoming something else.

5000 (6599) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - DEC 4, 2010
Bottle:   Caramel hued amber, moreso on the orangish side, slight haze, large frothy off-white head, very nice lacing.   Sweet aroma of dried apricot, citrus peel, and candied hops.   That is very unique!   Semi-sweet start, resiny but not biting, citrusy but not terribly sweet, and of course... hoppy yet not very biting.   Okay, it does have a bit of a bit.   I think its backed up with some of that 11.5% alcohol though.   Not terribly heavy, but certainly bigger than your average IPA.   I would say this is definitely a 1¾ IPA.   Its a little bubbley on the tongue.   Wished it were a tad more malty, but as is the malt base is fairly decent.   Has a smidgen of caramel and candied citrus peel on the backside.   As it warms it begins to grow on me.   This is more of a sweeter example, not as biting nor as malty as others.   Interesting take on the style, and a refreshing change of pace from the norm.   Thanks to Beerman6686 for the bottle!

ben4321 (5646) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - DEC 4, 2010
Location: 750 ml corked and caged bottle from Buy Rite - Jersey City, 12/4/10, as Fegley’s Brewworks Hop’solutely

Aroma: The nose is somewhat suptle, some resin, floral notes, malts, and a hint of tropical fruit
Appearance: It pours a cloudy orange color with a thick (2 + fingers) and foamy beige head
Flavor: The taste is fairly balanced, leaning bitter, light citrus sweetness, and a dry bitter finish
Palate: The body is medium, the alcohol is pretty well-hidden, and the texture is a touch oily
Overall Impression: This wasn’t the best Double IPA (or Triple as they claim on the bottle) that I have ever tried, but it was an enjoyable brew. It seems to improve with a touch of warmth to it in my opinion. Anyway, not that exciting in my opinion, but not a bad beer either. I just expect a little better in this style.

Thanks to blutt59 for sharing this bottle. The beer pours a yellow color with a white head. The aroma is pine, citrus and some bready malt. Not sure why, but the aroma is fairly sweet. The flavor is very sweet, with some syrupy citrus notes. I also get a little bit of pine. Low bitterness. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
