Can courtesy of beerbastard- thanks Joel! Pours a slightly hazy dark yellow color w/ a big, fluffy white head. Decent aroma of faint, piney hops & sweet, bready malts. Bites the tongue initially w/ bitter hops & alcohol. Moves into un-ripened nectarine, grapefruit pith & pine. Get some cracker & caramel in the middle. Finishes a little more bitter w/ the alcohol showing up again. More sweet than I typically like my DIPA’s but not bad overall. A hard category to be "great" in.

Berard (557) - Salem, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 6, 2016
Draft. Pours yellow with a very slight haze. Very thin white head that dissipates quickly. Medium heavy carbonation over piney hop aroma. Nice citrus flavor with a bit of complexity. Enjoyable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft to pint at Monte Carlo in Vegas pour lightly hazy avg gold with thin white head. Nose mango and tropical fruit, light floral. Taste light to moderate bitter bite up front, then some fruit and dank hop. All in all a bit muted.

burg326 (5199) - Florida, USA - FEB 6, 2016
Golden orange pour with some caramel, light grassy hops and malt. Flavors are the same, basic, but not bad, more malt than hops for an IPA. Ok overall, wouldn’t seek out or go out of m y way to try.

Beaver (1589) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JAN 1, 2016
12 oz can. Pours hazy golden orange with a big creamy off white head that retains well and leaves little lacing.

The aroma is sweet crystal malt with piney grassy hops and some fruit.

The flavor is sweet, slightly fruity, biscuit malts with lots of grassy piney hops. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with low carbonation.

Overall, OK DIPA.

Typical citrusy hoppy IPA. The 9.2 ABV does not make it malty. ---Rated via BeerBuddy for iPhone. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cloudy gold pour with good white head. Floral hops with citrus. Flavor is big and hoppy with resin that stays until the end. Creamy body with nice texture. Nice dry hoppy finish.

PartyFowle (906) - - SEP 7, 2015
Can. Gently hazed with a deep golden hue and a large, frothy white cap. Aroma is hop-forward -- grapefruit and lemon, a little grass, some cattiness. The flavor kicks off with these bright hop notes, landing on the tongue with heavy bitterness. A hint of honeyed malt is the only sugar balancing this alpha acid onslaught, and ethanol strikes at the finish. Soft, whipped medium-light body; mild fizzy CO2. Not a terribly complex double IPA, but if you’re looking to smash your tongue with bitterness, look no further.
