Taste is slightly malty upfront which is washed quickly away by a wave of citrus hops and a bitter bite to boot. Finishes quite dry and bitter.

superspak (2556) - Michigan, USA - MAR 28, 2014
12 ounce bottle into tulip glass, no bottle dating. Pours slightly hazy deep orange copper color with a 1-2 finger dense cream colored head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass. Aromas of big grapefruit, tangerine, lemon zest, orange peel, pineapple, citrus rind, floral, grass, rye, caramel, toast, pine, and floral/grassy earthiness. Very nice aromas with good complexity of citrus/earthy hops and moderate caramel/rye malt sweetness; with good strength. Taste of big grapefruit, tangerine, lemon zest, orange peel, pineapple, citrus rind, floral, grass, pine, rye, caramel, toast, and floral/grassy earthiness. Good amount of floral/pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, lemon zest, orange peel, pineapple, citrus rind, floral, grass, pine, caramel, rye, toast, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Damn nice complexity of big citrus/earthy hops with a good amount of malt sweetness; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a very smooth and moderately slick/sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a light warming present after the finish. Overall this is an excellent DIPA. All around great complexity of bright citrus/earthy hop and nicely balanced malt sweetness; and very smooth to sip on for the big ABV. A very enjoyable offering.

SHIG (3565) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - MAR 23, 2014
Bottle: Poured a coppery orange brown with a thin off white head. Aroma is strong sweet floral hops and malt. Taste is strong gritty hops forward that subside to malt balance. Finish is peppery and spice tingle.

fcjack1 (134) - Washington, USA - MAR 21, 2014
Bottle from 99 bottles. Pours a reddish amber. Scent of hops and some booze. Taste is malty. Alcohol is right up front. Pretty good beer.

Davhgbrew (938) - Coconut Creek, Florida, USA - MAR 19, 2014
Very strong, complex and mostly big and malty double ipa. The hop aroma and bitterness is pretty high, but overpowered by syrupy caramel sweetness and alcohol. Just a big, hoppy, and malty brew.

atlrizzob (156) - Aiken, South Carolina, USA - MAR 18, 2014
Very nice. Pours a golden amber with fairly thick beigeish head. Very well balanced flavor of hops and malts for a smooth and satisfying taste. Bitter and sweet indeed.

skortila (4481) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - MAR 9, 2014
Bottled. New Zealand holiday 2011-12. Old notes. The aroma has caramel malts and fruity hops. Might be hazy (it was dark), orange-brown coloured beer with an off-white head. The taste is sweet, quite bitter in the end. It is roasted, caramel, bread, some raisin and a citric finish. Nice!

Doftar fruktigt fylligt likt en ekfatslagrad barely Wine. Smakar som en också fasst något torrare.. Fin riktigt fyllig öl. Rostbrun färg nästan lite otäckt..

Pours beautiful amber red color with minimal lacing. Smells hoppy and of rye. An outstanding beer that reps the rye and dipa categories well.
