650ml bottle. Cloudy copperish golden colour with average, frothy, half-way lasting, moderately lacing, off-white head. Intense, sweaty resinous hop aroma, hints of grapefruit and pine, robust caramal malty background. Taste is moderately bitter hoppy, intensely resinous, some pine, grapefruit, caramel malty basis absorbs some of the hop bitterness. Solid, though not overwhelming Double IPA.

22 oz bottle shared by drsordr. Pours a clear honey amber color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma has resin and citrus hops, perhaps some catty notes, caramel malt; pretty nice overall. The flavor has everything in the nose with toasted malt and a touch of the alcohol. Decent bitterness to the finish.

mcberko (5919) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 11, 2013
22 oz. bottle, sent from Neillago (thanks a lot, man), pours an opaque cloudy vibrant orange amber with a medium beige head. Aroma is both very hoppy and malty, with loads of resinous hops, big caramel malt, and grapefruit. Flavour is very juicy and bitter, with loads of grapefruit, oranges, truckloads of resinous hops, and a thick caramel malt background. There are also some perfumey floral notes. Despite the big malt backbone, there is almost no sweetness here. The grapefruit and resin take centre stage and completely dominate the palate. The balance isn’t the best, though the flavours are very pleasant. Not an easy drinking one, due to the heaviness from the malt, but very enjoyable.

Zer0 (1126) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUN 10, 2013
Pours a nice clear copper with a solid white head. Aroma is sweet malts and tropical fruits. Taste is pine and grapefruit. very decent dipa, but not that complex.

caesar (4893) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - JUN 2, 2013
Bottled. Clear amber color, medium frothy off-white head. Aroma of biscuity malts together with piney hops, some grapefruit. Big bitterness, piney again. Quite typical american DIPA, pretty straightforward. Quite dry in taste, big bold bitterness and a typical malt base. Lacks a bit complexity though.
