4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma- huge astringency, grapefruit, pineapple, peaches
Appearance- rust orange, opaque, incredible lacing, nice fluffy white head
Taste- massive astringent bitterness upfront, clean, fruity middle with pineapple, peaches, and blood orange, unreal bitterness on the backend
Overall- Lives up to the name. Very potent, not especially drinkable but in a good way. Hop bomb not for the faint of heart. Get some.

certainly seems more than 100 ibu. Just too bitter. Better done than other super high bitter beers, there is some taste. Golden red colour. Not my favourite great DIPA.

Aroma is a lot of pine with some citrus. Pours a golden amber with a nice off-white head. Taste is pine and caramel with a ton of hops. Very good.

Excellent double ipa. Amber gold body, bright and clear. Medium carbonation, medium body. Excellent length focusing on the hop bitterness.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Crystal clear, textbook amber color, nicely bubbly, with a firm head of tight foam. The aroma is loaded with piney, wet-forrested hops. This drinks with a "wrecker" of an approach indeed ... an all-out assault on the taste glands, rich with alcohol, phenol, and resin. Definitely a sipper, not a gulper. I think you might be able to kindle a fire with this stuff. (#4593, 5/8/2012)

Not as aggressive as I would have thought From the name. Crisp clean pour, and a great hop not...not overly bitter or floral. Absolutely would get another.

Bottle. Clear gold, white head. Nose is pine, candied orange peel, honey like malt, cotton candy & alcohol. Flavor is pine, solid caramel maltiness, candied orange, light tropical fruit, very strong bitterness. Lingering pine & bitterness in the finish.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz bottle purchased at Lukas Liquors in Martin City, Missouri. The pour is a slight haze copper orange with a one inch light tan head. As the beer falls, nice spidery lacing left behind. The aroma is bright hops, full resin, spice garlic, and citrus pineapple fruit. The taste has resin caramel malt, along with a blast of the garlic, spice and tropical fruit hops of the nose. I was expecting a bit more vibrancy in the taste based on the nose, I certainly like the nose on this better than the taste. The palate is medium bodied, fair amount of booze in the long, sweet, finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught Nearly no head, clear copper beer. Intense citrusaromas. Near to a citrusliqueur with orange peel or orange marmalade. Very powerful, but strangely not exaggerated. A bit empty palate, feels thinnish, probably very well attenuated. Better balanced than ne name tries to suggest.

Caramel-orange pour with a thin head and nice lacing. Hops galore. Pine-orange citrus. Quite refreshing.
