On tap at Alibi Room in Vancouver. Arrrr! A most most salubrious golden concoction, me hearties! Big citrus, pine hops notes here, with very substantial malts carrying up the rear of the flavour brigade. Yes!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle pours a hazy pale golden orange with a small but persistent off white head. Carmel sweet hop aroma with some tropical notes. Thick heavy body, like a barlywine, not super hoppy or bitter, but big and strong. Soft carbonation and a sweet papery trailer.

Lots of hop aroma. Basically, all I smell. Poured with a one inch white head and a light orange color. Nice hoppy, hoppy, hoppy taste. Also, light tasty, fruity flower taste hits the top of your tongue. Pretty good.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A nice orange amber body with a white head that had nice retention and some lacing. Aroma had a mild caramel malt presence, but was primarily hops. Mostly grapefruit hops. There was a mix of tropical fruits and a tough of resinous pine notes. Flavor was all hops, while it was mildly sweet a nice blend of hops dominated the flavor. There was more pine notes than the aroma indicated and the grapefruit note did overpower the beer. The alcohol was well hidden and the finish was dry.

12 oz Bottle. The beer pours to an orange color with a medium white head. The aroma has a strong pine, citrus & resin scent to it. The taste has a good bite up front followed by a medium body & a medium bitter finish. Overall a very nice DIPA for me.

Clear copper gold in color... Aroma of mango, tropical fruit... Flavor is spicy pine, fruit punch akin to hi-c, unlike any ipa I've had... Fruity bitterness throughout, especially on the finish... Solid beer

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
12oz bottle - pours misty orange/amber with light white head. Nose is grapefruit, general citrus and tart tropical fruit. BItter, yes. Too citrusy, and unripe at that. Canít detect the high ABV, in the palate at least. Instead of drain pouring this, I will just pound it and experience the green "bullet"...

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle best by March 10, 2014 on November 14, 2013. Pours a clear golden orange with modest white foam. Aromas of pine and orange citrus with a good bit of grain. The flavor is quite hearty pine with some pineapple orange citrus bitter and a voracious golden barley underneath. Not quite slick at hiding alcohol it presents itself quickly with bold aspirations. Nice soft sparkling carbonation makes it just a bit sweet to try and match the big hoppy grain alcohol but it falls short of balance, but I guess that itís kind of the idea. Solid brew, very rich and brash but gets smoother with warmth.
