Served on tap from the brewpub into a small shaker as a sample from the bartender. Poured a light red orange with a one finger off-white head. Maintained nice lacing throughout the sample. The aroma was comprised of grapefruit, hops, malt, and pine. The flavor was of grapefruit and hops. It was light on the palate with low carbonation. Overall this was a very nice IIPA. It was extremely smooth as it had a very nice hop bitterness that was present when swallowed but very sweet upfront with the grapefruit notes taking the show. The aroma was quite nice as well, but not as robust as I would have hoped. Definitely a great IIPA and I am glad I got the chance to try this one.

Yummy! This is a well balanced and slightly more malt forward double ipa. I wanted a little more from the aroma,but the taste really delivered with tons of citrus and resin followed by a caramel malt bill that is quite prominent. Finish is plenty bitter with a slightly lingering sweetness. Appearance has a little bit of floaties, but nothing to dock their score over...

I love hoppyum so I was assuming this was going to be an amped up version of it. It’s good but for me not amazing. There’s a really big malty sweetness and not much hoppiness to back it up. There’s a big grassiness and sweet taste. I hate to be the guy who says it but I’m really not loving this. I was expecting something different.

Draft at the Community Tap. Yellow/orange pour with a white head. Herbal hop aromas. Medicinal/herbal hop notes. Hoppy and bitter with an undersized malt backbone. Average body and mouthfeel.

22 oz bottle from Pendulum Fine Meats in Norfolk, VA; cool place. Clear orange with a puffy beige head. Nose is honey, pink grapefruit, grass and slight musk. Oily and resiny medium body with muted carb. Taste is caramel, pine, grass and orange pith. Green and herbal, sticky then dry.

chinchill (2770) - South Carolina, USA - JAN 28, 2015
On tap. Poured clear light amber with a generous and thick foamy off-white head; corresponding lacing. The aroma is appealing, but less hoppy than expected. T - too sweet and short on hops, if judged by style. Ignoring that, this is a bold, well balanced ale that drinks like a bold APA with well-hidden ABV, although the alcohol adds complexity. M - near medium body with medium+ carbonation. The higher ABV adds some warmth O - this surprising "double IPA" is balanced and easy drinking.

ben4321 (4546) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JAN 5, 2015
Location: 22 oz bottle from Bruisin’ Ales, 1/5/15

Aroma: The aroma is lighter than I expected, citrus/orange, pine notes, dough, and booze
Appearance: This one pours a clear orange color with a beige head that coats the glass
Flavor: The sweetness and citrus are subtle, bitterness comes through more than anything else
Palate: Medium-plus bodied, light heat, with a soft-to-average carbonation, and a dry finish
Overall Impression: This one definitely needs to warm up a bit, when it is too cold the aroma is a little lacking. Once it warns up, it improves, but it still isn’t amazing. A DIPA from Foothills? Sounded exciting. This is okay, but I expected this one to be better.

Cloudy golden pour with a single finger head. Aroma of pine, citrus. Strong grapefruit bitterness. Medium mouth. Lots of citrus in this one. Not overly balanced being a hop bomb, but it is pretty drinkable for how bitter it is.
