HonkeyBra (3671) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - FEB 1, 2013
22 oz bottle. Amber orange color with a small slightly off white head. Aroma of flowers, rich pine and strong citrus. Unsurprising, for a DIPA, but still nice. Flavor is strongly bitter. Strong pine and grapefruit notes. Nice, sure. Very bitter. Some pine, some lemon. Full bodied, heavier carbonation. This is nice, especially in the finish where it is quite bitter. Nice, finishes long a bitter.

joeneugs (3932) - Livermore, California, USA - MAR 11, 2015
12 oz. bottle. It pours a nice clear gold color with a big white head. The aroma is very sweet with lots of candied caramel and toffee. A little fruit and florals underneath. The flavor is a little better with some strong floral/piney flavor and more sweet caramel toffee malts. The finish is very bitter with more pine. Nothing seriously off, just a lot of sweet crystal flavor. This would have passed for a good version of the style seven or eight years ago. Today, itís just meh.

Tasted during RBWG post-grand tasting shit-show hotel-tasting. Hazy golden orange amber color. Thin off-white head. Medium to bigger body. Kind of slick texture. Lighter carbonation. Caramel malt. Some citrusy resiny hop, more malt though. Moderate to bigger sweet, light bitter. Mild heat. OK, malty sweet DIPA.

Bottle shared late night in the hotel lobby during RBWG 2015. Pours Unclear gold with a creamy white head. Bready pale malts in the nose, pine needles, citrus rind. Medium sweet flavor, more pale bread, grain, pale citrus. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Lightly warming finish, some rindy lemon, grainy pale malts. Interesting.

robotopera (36) - USA - DEC 20, 2014
Bottle from Total Wine & More. Pours amber with a solid creamy head. Leaves a sparse lace but this snifter is plastic so take that with a grain of salt. Aroma is offensively funky with a wheat and hop background. body is oily with a light amount of carbonation. Very little amount of hops, mostly roasty toast malt flavor. Flavor is pretty weak all around which probably makes it drinkable, if it tasted like it smells I would be dumping this out. Luckily Iím at a party so I can give these away.
