On draft at beer temple. Dark golden pour, slightly opaque, fine collapsing head. Lilac in the aroma. Very balanced mix of sweet and biitter. Lingering bitter finish. Quite a nice double ipa

12oz bottle- I purchased this beer upon falling in love with flying dogs double dog. Chinook imperial IPA poured much paler than I was expecting, its light golden and clear. The nose is tremendous, lots of pine and hoppy citrus. The taste is similar with the malt taking the back seat to the extreme bitter and aroma powers of chinook. This was a solid brew very tasty and full of hops. Exactly what I was looking for and a little bit more. Flying dog is the shit, period.

Golden hue, grapefruit aroma, Intrigued by this upon finding it for first time in store, but the abv seems to be the dominant aspect of this, a good imperial ipa, but nothing sets it apart...

UPDATED: OCT 20, 2012 Caught this at the beer store having never seen it before. 12oz bottle poured into snifter glassa golden orange color, small off-white head. Aroma was the typical IIPA citrus and pine notes leaning towards grapefruit. Taste was surprisingly light hop bitterness, sweet malt and some fruit. Creamy mouth feel and dry finish. Not my favorite of this FD IIPA line but not bad.

flip_soeperman (620) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 26, 2012
Grapefruit piney nose with enough malts to give it some bready character. Light to medium sweetness and medium bitterness. Medium body with good carbonation and a nice head. Good beer although could use some brightness ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

LtDan (1784) - Los Angeles County, California, USA - AUG 21, 2012
Appearance: Pours a hazy orange with a thick fluffy beige head.

Aroma: Grapefruit pine resin, pineapple.

Taste: Big piny bitternrss, slight grapefruit, spicy dry malt long bitter hoppy finish. As it warms, some caramel comes through too.

Mouthfeel: Full bodied rough carbonation.

Overall: Not sure if the base beer of this series gets altered by the hop additions, but this beer is night and day better than the El Dorado edition. This has a great mouthfeel and a wonderful hop profile. Great job.

AxlLives (287) - Maryland, USA - AUG 17, 2012
12 oz bottle - pours golden orange with medium mostly lasting white head. Little grapefruit, citrus and light pine on the nose. Medium body with tangy orange and pine notes. Very bitter finish with some malty undertones makes for a decent brew, if not the best of FDís single hop IPAs. Cannot turn it down, but Citra tastes nicer.

sonnycheeba (3570) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - AUG 17, 2012
Tap. Pours mostly clear copper with thin, fizzy white head; short retention and minimal lacing. Aroma is caramel and cereal malts, floral hops, orange peel, herbs, and light pine. Flavor is smooth hops forward (light bitterness) with good supporting sweet malt and light fruit esters; smooth, lightly hoppy finish. Light body, low carbonation, and low warmth.
