Bomber from the local. Pours a clear orange amber with a fluffy white head. The aroma is a delight to my hop loving senses. Leafy, citrusy, hop notes spring from the bottle. Crisp and refreshing with steady carbonation. Alcohol not very well hidden in the finish but I’m not complaining.

I dunno I can see through this one. As in what it aspires to be. Yet this beer is tier 2 in IPAs for me. Straight forward and to the point. Light foam goes quickly. Fresh hop aroma. Golden colored.

Share by Pinkzambia A big sharp IPA. Hazy golden and a big mostly piney aroma and flavor. Dry and a bit hash. Definitely a double

Bottle: Clear gold color with a small head. Alcohol and rubber aroma followed by a great flavor of sweetness and a bitter trailer. A bit musty . . . has the potential to blow you away but stops short.

Travlr (13196) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - AUG 27, 2014
Draft. Slightly hazy golden color, medium white head. Aroma of grass, pine. Taste is malt forward with bitter lemongrass. Not sure why this needs such a high abv.

pivo (2585) - GERMANY - AUG 23, 2014
Cloudy orange color with low fizzy head. Surprised the nose is so light given the massive hoppy flavor that smacks your taste buds immediately. There is a fair amount of alcohol to support the hops but not enough malt. This is one dimensional to an extreme which can have its place.

Cloudy orange, small lace on top. Light nose. Sharp bitter start, peppery , caramel sweet in the middle, building up medium long lasting

joejames (175) - Jacobus, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 22, 2014
Bottle to shaker glass. Pours hazy apricot/amber, two finger head, moderate lacing. Aroma of grapefruit, pine, caramel, orange peel. As for the taste, very bitter with notes of stone fruits and herbs, slightly sweet backbone. Full bodied, lots of small bubble carbonation, very juicy mouth feel. Alcohol is noticeable. Finishes long and quite bitter, with notes of spruce, grapefruit, cherry, herbs and caramel malts. Sticky on the mouth long after the finish. Very nice but dangerous.

4/VII/14 - 12 Fl. Oz. bottle @ home - BB: n/a (2014-699) Thanks to Dominiek for the bottle!

Clear deep orange beer, small aery off-white head, unstable, non adhesive. Aroma: bit metallic, caramel, malty, bit fruity, peaches, overripe fruits, mango, bit of chlorine. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: sweet and caramel malts, sugary, alcohol, some cooked fruits, something off, pretty bitter. Aftertaste: sweet and sugary, jam, lots of alcohol, caramel, very dry, bitter.

sebletitje (6895) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JUL 6, 2014
Bouteille 355ml de et partagée avec Tderoeck. Léger orangé, col beige moyen. Arôme est légèrement houblonné où l’on ressent un fruité modéré de pamplemousse et des houblons fermentés. La puissance des 11% se fait e suite notable. Palais reste assez huileux et houblonné, pointe d’épice pour une fin amertume. Malt pâle. Houblonné renforcé pour une belle effervescence qui accentue la présence des houblons. Au final, une bière trop forte qui manque de mettre l’accent sur le vrai style, on se retrouve avec une bière qui pourrait presque passer pour un jeune barley wine.

Reviewed from notes. This was poured into a snifter. The appearance was a nice hazy orange color with a moderate white quarter finger head. The head faded within about twenty seconds and left some light stringy lacing. The smell started off with a ton of citrus with a nice light dosing of pine and tropical fruit. The taste was basically the same but added a nice light sweet bready maltiness. On the palate, this one sat just a tad above medium on the body with a more of a sipping quality to it. Once again, I didn’t really find this too sessionable, and that was probably due to the fact that this one was just too high in ABV. Overall, for the most part this was a nice DIPA (er uhmmm...Triple IPA perhaps) as the alcohol isn’t noticed that much. I’d have this again.
