Hazy dark copper color. Medium beige head. Sweet- very hoppy aroma - quite bitter without being overwhelming. The flavor is also sweet hoppy with touch of caramel and malt. Amazingly little bite considering the high alcohol content. Great strong ale!

Bottle. Piney hop aroma with notes of citrus, caramel malt and booze. Pours clear amber colored with one finger of tan head that has excellent retention and some lacing. Starts with sweet caramel and some biscuit malt flavors. Finishes very dry with citrus hop flavor before giving way to pine hop bitterness and a slight amount of booze on the very end. Pretty good, but a lot of booze for a double IPA.

Originally rated on 9/26/08. Let me start with the least positive thing about this beer, the lack of flavor, the only thing i can taste is the bitterness which lasts a long time, not that it is bad but considering the aroma, was a little of a let down. Getting back to the aroma it reminded me of canned fruit cocktail, a very sweet mixture of pineapple, cherry, pear ect, very nice. Appearance was a deep amber with lots of yeast floaters and a ’1’ finger light tan cap. Overall it was really good, even though the flavor wasnt as expected, i would certainly buy this again and again. So far my favorite of the flying dog beers.

Bottled. Best by 06/16/16 . pour deep honey color, white head. Aroma is booze, fig, toffee, burnt sugar, little bit of citrus, pine. American strong ale is probably more accurate than DIPA. Flavor is pine, hops, orange, booze, burnt sugar, decently bitter hop, but not astringent, finish. Actually really nice. I quite like it.

I do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.

Six pack from Hot Rods. Alcohol, raisin, and some hop notes. Big ABV. Not bad but better beers than this.

Too much. This beer is great for getting drunk ... Citrusy, crazy hops and crazy malt. I like IPAs but I am not a fan of this beer. Too much ... Everything!

Hold da op! Sikken en humlefest der er i min mund, normalt er en double pale ale humlet, men den her er noget for sig selv.
Den smager helt forrygende, og har en smag af mange gode ting og sager. Det er ikke nemt at sige det er nødder, eller noget andet, men den har en lettere spritet eftersmag dog ikke så meget at det gør noget. En god øl, der skal smages hvis man får chancen.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle - Amber colour, creamy off-white head with good retention and lacing. Intense hoppy nose with lemon zest, pine and some sweet malt. Taste is sweet and rich maltiness, some caramel, biscuit, grapefruit, tangerine with resinous notes. Medium to full body, average carbonation, slick texture, decent hop bitterness lingers long in the aftertaste. Excellent IIPA, a must try.

Hot! The aroma has hints of floral hops and caramel malts. The flavor is all booze with late hints at dry floral hoppiness. Skip this

Amber with slim white head. Rich aroma of caramel, malts, citrus hops, some dark fruits. Impressive taste of similar elements, full bodied, some alcohol warmth, but quite well hid. Nicely balanced, nice stuff.
