brokensail (10645) - Orange County, California, USA - NOV 27, 2013
Bottle @ Bobby’s house, shared by Sam. Golden orange pour with a white head. Nice big pineapple aroma. Lots of citrus peel, pine, and grass. A touch on the sweet side with plenty of caramel. Big bitterness to the flavor, but also quite sweet. Pine, resin, grass, and citrus peel. Decent pineapple notes. Kind of muddled, otherwise good.

Tmoney99 (10466) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 3, 2013
Bottle shared by jmborggren. Poured clear copper color with an average frothy white head that lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy complex resin, citrus and earthy aroma. Medium to full body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Moderate to heavy complex bitter flavor with a moderate to heavy complex bitter finish of medium to long duration. This is a standout beer.

hopscotch (8893) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - APR 24, 2013
Draft... Jupiter Craft Brewer’s Festival 2013... This beer rocks!… Deep, crystal clear, textbook amber ale with a mid-sized, frothy, white head. Great retention. The bouquet is a grapefruit bomb with a sprinkling of cat piss and other assorted, dank, earthy notes. There are also mild components of biscuit and flowers. Full-bodied and lightly creamy with prickly carbonation. The flavor features an impressive toffee, caramel and honey malt backbone, but it only serves as a pedestal for massive citrusy and earthy hop bitterness. Lengthy, bittersweet finish. World class imperial IPA!

deyholla (6512) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - FEB 2, 2013
Sampled from the tap at the brewery. Pours a near clear orange gold with a white head that dissipates slowly to the edges. Aroma has some sweetalts with pine hops and a hint of grass. Flavor had line up front with more of a sweet grain and grassy finish.

phaleslu (6286) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 6, 2013
750 ml bottle via NC trade- thanks again, John! Pours a clear dark orange tea color with a thick off-white head that settles into an uneven film with a ring. Plenty of lace. Aroma of very herbal hops, with pine, oils, leaves, pepper, and some caramel and toasty malts. Flavor of peppery, herbal, oily hops, caramel malts, grapefruit peel, pine needles, and dry grains. Medium-bodied, with a dry, bitter mouthfeel that has a bitter push late but doesn’t linger too heavily. Really nice double IPA. Complex showcase of hops.

DrSilverworm (6026) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 23, 2013
Labeled as 9.3% ABV. 750ml bottle shared with the group by jmborggren, I think. Mostly clear golden / orange color. Good thin somewhat bubbly white head. Decent lace. Awesome citrusy - orange piney nose. Smooth, light carbonation. Grapefruit in the flavor. Kind of a creamy texture. Nice and smooth. Good bitter taste, and zesty sweetness. Some kiwi. Nice bitter taste. Good sweet zest. Nice big caramel malt base. Balanced, but still assertive DIPA. I dig it.
