Relatively smooth for a strong beer, orange amber with abundant creamy off white head. Hoppy, piney aroma leads to very astringent taste, sharp bitterness lingers long after. Still smooth enough to mask to the high abv. Nicely done.

Slightly hazy straw color with fluffy white head. Nice spicy aroma. Not overly hoppy up front but nocely hoppy overall. Clean finish. Not bad.

Ferris (4128) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 31, 2014
Bottle - Skunky hops with a bit of grass and a light malt sweetness. Pale gold with a bubbly white head. Resin, bitterness and a candy like sweetness. A decent IIPA, doesn’t have the body or malts to really back it up though.

UPDATED: JUN 6, 2014 Pours a hazy copper orange color with nice soapy head from a can. Aroma is grapefruit citrucy hops upfront. Some tangerines good caramel malt note. Taste follows the Aroma with a medium mouth feel very well made. No alcohol noticable in the taste. Smooth drinking Dipa. But nothing standing out accept they did put it in a can wich jmo is a plus. I?m surprised this doesn?t have a much higher score. It?s tasty!

From can. Pours a hazy orange color and leaves a thin lacing on glass. Aroma is citrus with maybe a slight hint of pepper. Taste is Hoppy with citrus but is also slightly sweet. High Octane at 9.3%

chribban (165) - SWEDEN - DEC 30, 2013
Hazy, amber beer with a three finger high head. Nose: Tropical fruit, grapefruit, honey, citrus, pine and hops. Taste: Grapefruit, grass, pine, tea and citrus. More nose than taste. A solid DIPA but nothing special.

This is one of the better DIPAs out there. Very well balanced malt and hop wise, and the slight sweetness really works. Bitter but not a hop bomb. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

harrymel (1502) - Spokane, Washington, USA - DEC 30, 2013
Can from Uber in Seattle Apricot with a loose soapy top, slightly hazy. Smells nice with peach, mango and dry, crackery malts. Flavor is well balanced on the hops to malts - not particularly bitter, but lots ofhop flavors, fruity and tropical overall. Medium bodied with light carb and a semi dry finish. Nice beer.

UPDATED: JAN 1, 2014 Intensely hoppy and aromatic, expressed through vibrant notes of orange zest, lime and mandarin. Precise carbonation leads to massive bitterness, buttressed by a rich malty body full of toast and caramel character. A huge IPA yet all aspects in excellent balance. Find and drink soon! ---- http://instagram.com/pintofbitter

12oz can from Total Wine. Pours a hazy amber orange with some foamy white head. Citrus aroma with some pine notes. Balanced taste with a nice hoppy bite. Pretty good and a great value.
