VinegarStroke (316) - Napa, California, USA - MAR 27, 2015
bottle: Clear, copper hue, light head and medium lace. Good balance of malt and hops. Some darker malt balances the lifted tropical hops. Lots of fruit. Very rich aromatically. Dry to off dry without and sourness and moderate bitterness. Nice richness but maybe a little fat. Lacks freshness and CO2. Solid. not great.

Draught. This is big bright IPA with lots of hop action and some good alcohol warmth.

Tap at Stout Brothers. Clear orange pour with a sticky clingy head. Mango and peach aromas. Similar taste, with some sharp hoppiness and a creamy mouthfeel.

superspak (3079) - Michigan, USA - FEB 25, 2015
22 ounce bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 10/9/2014. Pours fairly crystal clear deep orange/copper color with a 2 finger fairly dense and fluffy light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass, with some light streaming carbonation. Aromas of big tangerine, pineapple, peach, mango, lemon zest, orange peel, light pine, honey, caramel, light toast, and floral/grassy earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of juicy citrus/tropical hops and moderate malt sweetness; with good strength. Taste of big tangerine, pineapple, peach, mango, lemon zest, orange peel, pine, honey, caramel, light toast, and floral/grassy earthiness. Fair amount of pine/grassy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of tangerine, pineapple, peach, mango, lemon/orange zest, pine, honey, caramel, light toast, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Damn nice complexity and balance of citrus/tropical/pine hops and moderate 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 fairly creamy/sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with a small warming present after the finish. Overall this is an excellent DIPA. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of bright citrus/tropical/pine hops and moderate malt sweetness; and very smooth to sip on for the ABV. A very enjoyable offering.

Mr_Abner (90) - Michigan, USA - FEB 22, 2015
Bottle (undated, but just hit my store). Pours a clear copper color. Aromas of fruity hops and caramel malt. Taste is similar with caramel malt heavier than I prefer for the style. Significant malt; a modest bitterness. Medium to full bodied, average carbonation. I really don’t find anything special here.

slowrunner77 (6336) - Reno, Nevada, USA - FEB 20, 2015
good but fairly run of the mill double ipa...resiny pine and fruit, moderate to heavy bitterness and body. solid across the board, but nothing truly stands out.

DWestrick (460) - Ft Wayne, Indiana, USA - FEB 17, 2015
bottle. Very nice DIPA. Hoppy with some subtle malt. Light vinegar note that adds a nice touch. Killer finish

Slipstream (2146) - USA - FEB 12, 2015
Some citrus, floral notes, and a dash of vinegar in the aroma. The label and name are a salute to the California redwoods. The flavor is robust and woody, with lots of rich hops, lemon peel, some greenery, a dash of iron, and a warm finish. This lived up to my hopes and reminded me of some very good Vermont IPAs.

Tmoney99 (11475) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 7, 2015
Bottle. Poured clear copper color with an average frothy off-white head that lasted with very good lacing. Moderate to heavy complex citrus hop aroma. Medium to full body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Moderate to heavy bittersweet flavor with a moderate to heavy bittersweet finish of medium to long duration. This is a solid brew.

Strykzone (5283) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - FEB 2, 2015
Bomber from Hayduke that we had together via facebook chat. Clear amber with a big off white head that falls slowly. A perfume aroma of hops are citrus and floral with some caramel. First sip brings very little bitterness and more sweetness than expected. This is a classic west coast style IPA. I taste citrus and tropical fruit including pineapple and peaches. Flowers. Yeast adds a spicy characteristic. Malts add a lot of sweetness and only a little caramel flavor. It is also resinous. Late in the glass the feel gets just a little powdery despite the beer being almost clear. This was good stuff. I liked the soft bitterness and big sweetness. Well done.
