StinkBall (157) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - JUN 20, 2012
Aroma falls flat, I can smell the hops but for a double IPA, it is pretty weak. Taste is more like a soda than an IPA. Drinkable but not a good example of the style ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

mile (3634) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 24, 2016
Bottle. Golden, hazy, average and mostly diminishing head. Moderate to full malty and caramel sweetish aroma with light bread, light - some tropical fruitiness, some grapefruit/piney hoppyness, light alcohol. Body is medium, malty and sweetish flavor, some caramel and light bread, light -some tropical fruitiness, light - some grapefruit/piney hoppyness, faint alcohol. Finish is average, malty and lightly sweetish - sweetish, light - some caramel and faint bread, light tropical fruitiness, some pineygrapefruit hoppyness, light - some alcohol. Caramel sweetish and bready DIPA - could use more fruitiness and bitterness to balance 8% alcohol. Nothing really special.

Bright clear gold beer, good white head. Palate is light, semi dry and a mild fine crispness. Light malts, touch of lactose - cream sweetness. Hops are a nice combo of cooling pine, almost minty, hop spice, ripe tropical fruits. Light semi dry finish. Nicely joined up.

Mjp12 (1097) - York, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 27, 2015
Not quite right, this is full of hops, and built on quite a big malt build, but the finish is very harsh , and not just hop bitterness,

drowland (7368) - Georgia, USA - OCT 14, 2015
2/21/15. Sampled during RBWG 2015. Golden orange pour with a small khaki head. Light aroma, floral, old resiny citrus, loads of caramel, chalky. Floral hop flavor, citrus, resiny, caramel, crackers, doughy. Maybe a little old? Meh.

tightslice (700) - Redwood City, California, USA - JUN 13, 2015
On tap at Scratch in Mountain View, CA. Aroma is very light citrus, hops. Taste is very mild, almost watery with mild bitterness. Extremely disappointing for a DIPA. Not much flavor or character here.
