Bottle to shaker glass. Pours a cloudy yellow with a white head that dissipates quickly. The malt flavors stand out to me more than bitter hops. Pretty tasty. The hop flavors are that of orange peel citrus.

Tap at bulldog ne. Gold with thick white head and good lacing. Nice aroma. Flavor more mild than expected. Alcohol and sweet pine. Some bitter hop finish.

Poured from a bottle. Decent head and lacing. Slightly cloudy orange. Sweet but not overwhelming aroma, crisp and clean. The taste isnít overly sweet. I wished there was a bit more hoppiness.

I wasnít as impressed as I was expecting to be. Itís good, but I didnít think it was as good as I heard it was. Lots of sweetness. Thats it. I battled so much malt sweetness and wanted to know where the hops were.

spacecube (892) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 20, 2014
355ml bottle, pours clear golden brown with a small head, pungent resiny, piney and citrus hop over a large caramel malt backbone. Finishes bitter. Excellent balance with lots of hop and lots of malt. Plenty of flavour. medium sweetness, medium bitterness, medium body, sticky, average to soft carbonation, Excellent DIPA.

sailracer (404) - Massachusetts, USA - OCT 20, 2014
Bottle. Bitter, citrus and grapefruit hops! A little bit floral on the back of the tongue. Mild carbonation. A slight bitter aftertaste lingers which detracts slightly from the experience, in my opinion. Excellent overall.

Weevo (35) - Indiana, USA - OCT 18, 2014
Bottle, included in this months beer club six-pack. Pours amber with white head. IBU 86, probably a great beer I'm just not a hop-head. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jh773 (143) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 17, 2014
Yellow, little visible carbonation, thick head. Smell is mango, pineapple, grass. Flavor is caramel, tropical punch -- very smooth, not too sweet. Really well-balanced, if a little under-carbonated for my taste.

northropfrye (2249) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - OCT 14, 2014
Light yellow clear body with some foamy white head, not much retention or lacing. Lively aroma of citrus, a touch of pine, resin. Taste is nicely balanced between bitter and sweet malts. Nice pop to this. Good double IPA.

fraternie (826) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 13, 2014
Big and boozy, with a smooth mouthfeel full of caramel malt that is perfectly balanced by citrusy grapefruit and finishes with a blast of spicy hops. Long finish. Packs a punch but this is very well put-together.
