Deep copper pour, vizable carbonation full off white head, thick lacing. Aroma is lightly simcoe, a mix of light fruits and another hoppy character I can’t quite place, hints of alcohol. Well coated lightly oily lightly creamy. Sweet flavor, fresh hop flowers, definate simcoe a ton of caramels alcohol in the finish. Good stuff.

Aroma was relatively faint for a double ipa, but was fruity, with citrus, and apricot. copper colored beer with a white head. Flavor is pretty hoppy, but very drinkable and the alcohol is well hidden, carmel malts play well in balaning the hops and adding complexity. range of hop flavors, but not killer on citurs like many ipas. more spice, herbal, pine characteristics. palate is medium. good.

Growler. Pours a cloudy dark caramel orange with a small beige head. Aroma of tangerine, caramel malts and faint pine. Taste is dominated by tangerine citrus with hints of caramel malts and a bit of pine. Very hoppy and Very tasty. Alcohol is well hidden. Excellent !!

Pours fizzy and amber. Aroma is of pines and caramel malt. Taste is dominated by the pine and resinous hops with a touch of heat. The malt makes its presence known, but not enough to detract from the heat. Unfortunately the hops accentuate said alcohol and make this a very average double IPA for me.

KieferUGA (461) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - OCT 9, 2007
Pours a deep, dark cherry wood color. Aroma of citrus notes with a hint of alcohol. Initial sweetness, some caramel hidden in there. Sticky beer that clings to the roof of your mouth. A smooth maltiness takes over and slowly gives way to a bitterness at the back of your throat. This a a very special beer! Big thanks to alexanderj and kleyland for deciding to make the short drive to Winston-Salem from the WBF.

ruby amber color with a decent head. nice citrus hop aroma, also a bit piney and flowery. great flavor. hopes are balanced well, has a touch of sweetness and finishes with a good bit of hop zing but doesnt overstep its boundries. alcohol is greatly well hidden. one of the best parts about living in carolina is the availability of this beer. yum.

#300. Shared with Dragonstout, like most of the milestones. Tap at Foothills. Pours a neon reddish color with a frothy white head. Heavy hints of candied sugars, simcoe hops, and citrus fruits. Finished with a good body and stuck to the palate well. I need a growler of this!

Sampled at the brewpub.I am not a fan of DIPA but this one has altered my thinking.This reminded me of their Pilot Pale Ale wih roids added.Poured amber with a 2 finger white head.A nice citrusy, piney hop aroma.Hops with some semi sweetness to it.The finish was semisweet with a hint of caramel on the very backend.

8/4/8/4/17 - Sample from growler thanks to Bleacherbum. Amber color with a light-med white head. Aroma has some nice floral-grapefruit mix to it with a pleasant bit of sweet malts. Flavor has a nice hop mix with grapefruit/citrus, floral, earthy, and other freshly picked hop flavors melding together well. Nice use of malt here as well, plus a pleasant finish. The kind of beer you could drink all damn day.
