Bottle. Pours a clear light amber color with a moderate white head. Nose has some strong hoppy tones to it with some floral and citrus notes coming through. Taste isn’t quite as bitter as the nose implies, but still has some of the elements. Fairly light and crisp.

12oz bottle - pours caramel/amber with offwhite head and good lacing. Nose is grapefruit/pine, bordering on the cat urine side. Flavor adds caramel. Very bitter. I’m almost choking this is so bitter. It has altered my breathing. Alcohol and floral finish. Tasty, straightforward but nothing new here.

Draught pint 2/28/2013, Brazenhead, Dublin, OH. Small head of foamy white bubbles, orange bubbles, good lacing. Aroma deep, hoppy, largely floral. Heavy on the bitter, almost unilaterally, but sweet floral-ness holds this together. Really good.

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle: Pours bright orange with a medium sized white head. Nice lacing and slight stickiness. Aroma of mango, peach and bright citrus hops, light caramel malt. Pure aromatic bliss. Taste is citrus sweet and bitter hop profile. Finishes with a little alcohol heat but otherwise is smooth, complex and fun to drink. Good offering, just wish it were not so "hot".

This draft brew from the brew pub poured a small sized head of foamy white colored bubbles that were and left behind a softly carbonated transparent dark orange colored body and a good lacing. The deep aroma was hoppy and floral. The mild citrus mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a lingering hoppy aftertaste. The deep flavor contained notes of hops. Delicious and one I would certainly buy again.

Bottle. Pours a coppery orange with a pretty decent head and interesting aromas. I get white grape juice, pineapple and mango. Flavor is a very fruity medley of the aroma notes balanced against a honey and biscuity malt backdrop. This is not your punch in the face resin bomb IIPA, but rather a more delicate and balanced take on the style. And it’s yummy!

Aroma of hops but not overpowering. I wish there was more hops. More bitter than balanced.

Wow. Very fruity, very floral, goes down very soft and smooth for a DIPA. Wish there wasa lot more of this released. My favorite by GLBC.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at Beer Study. Orange amber with a steady sudsy white head. Nose shows lots of fresh grapefruit, slightly resinous, melon, lemon, lime, light spring onion/scallion, light butterscotch malt. Flavor shows a juicy resinous burst at first, but follows with a more bitter, boozy, sweet malt character. Starts off nice but it’s still a little rough around the edges. Would be better if they lowered the gravity by 2% or so.

4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: NOV 8, 2013 Aroma is fantastic, supersweet grapefruit, I would even go towards pineapple. Appearance is also beautiful, a dark amber with a light tan, one-finger head. Taste is also very sweet grapefruit, pine, a deep bitter hoppy aftertaste with no trace of booze. The mouthfeel is perfect, soft carbonation with not too much of a hoppy bite. Overall, GLBC hit the mark with this beer. This is an outstanding IIPA.
