brokensail (10608) - Orange County, California, USA - SEP 15, 2013
On tap @ Stone. Orange pour with a white head. Nose is biscuit malt up front with lots of grapefruit, pine, and orange. Some grass, a light tropical note, and some slight herbal notes. Flavor is a bit heavy on the biscuit and sweet malt notes. Still, decent grapefruit and pine hop flavors. A bit of orange, some grass, and a light bitterness.

GT2 (8184) - San Diego County, California, USA - SEP 15, 2013
Tap at Stone thanks to womencantsail. Pours a clear orange with medium white foam. Spotty lacing. Nose is dank hoppy, sticky melon, sort of malt gristy, a tad vegetal and sweaty. Strange. Taste is really nice- sharp hoppy bitterness, big grass and sugary melon. Solid IPA mouthfeel. Didn’t have a clue this was 11%.

On tap at Pressbox. Pours hazy golden with a white head. Nose is malt, citrus, floral, booze. Flavor is booze, floral, orange. Not sure what to make of this one; different.

I can’t believe that the pale ale has higher alcohol than the IPA. The bitterness is kind of soft though. I wish it was a little less abv and more additions.

dbarnold (1126) - Bethesda, Maryland, USA - SEP 17, 2012
Tasted like a monster DIPA to me. Tons of hops, but also thick and syrupy. Lots of pine and citrus. Back end gets to syrupy and boozy for me, kind of a rough finish.

Draft. Wow this is a really good beer. Name is a little misleading but once you understand what your drinking its phenomenal. One of my favorite 100+ ibu beers. Really high abv but you don?t taste the alcohol....which I like. Must be drank in moderation unless you?re looking to get really messed up quick.

JohnnyJ (4228) - San Diego, California, USA - JUN 22, 2012
Clear dark gold pour with an off white head. Sweet malt, some bread, butterscotch, bitter hops, and some orange citrus. Fairly boozy. Decent for how strong it is, but I don’t think I would drink it again.

Hophead22 (2880) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - APR 1, 2012
1ltr growler. Rating #12. Hazy dark orangish/brown color with a dirty white head. Decent aroma, picking up a good amount of pine followed by a citrus sweetness. Sweet grapefriut with some decent malt to back it up, nice bitterness and pretty enjoyable. (2292)
