Can with friends. Yellow appearance with a lasting white head. A bit of cardboard, lemon, and earth in the nose. Moderate sweetness. Pretty high bitterness. A little bit of toast, quite a bit of grapefruit, pine, and chewy malt. Kind of old but not very good anyhow.

UPDATED: OCT 2, 2014 balanced thick aroma of somewhat aged hops and carmely malt. good body. a touch thick, smooth. covers the abv well. taste hoppy, citrus, sweet malt. decent finish. i cannot freakin beleive i had a decent JJ beer. This place had 5 drainpours and a sad excuse for an RIS in the first six i tried. this is by far the best. I know that’s not saying a ton...Pliny it is not...but damn, it’s not drainpour. Yay!!

Bottle, Vegas, somewhere on the strip. Malt forward IPA, breadcrusts and caramel share the stage with piney hops. Moderate bitterness. I liked it. Fuck you,

355ml can from Total Wine, Tampa. Dorée-orangée, col fin blanc. Arôme est houblonné, résineux très plaisant, malt caramel, fruité tirant sur les agrumes, houblons type C. Palais est houblonné bien résineux, malt caramel pâle, note fraiche de pin avec un agréable fini agrumes - pamplemousse et citronné procurant une pointe aigrelette-amer en fin de bouche et balançant le côté malté.

alexsdad06 (8919) - Ohio, USA - APR 4, 2013
22 oz. bottle shared by dudeabide. Pours a hazy golden brown color with a medium off white head. The aroma is tingly, almost tart citrus, sweet caramel malts with light herbal notes. Not very hoppy for a DIPA. The flavor is interesting, but not like an Imperial IPA. Tart citrus, grass, herbal, moderately sweet malts with a dry finish. Doesn’t seem to have the big malts and hops for the style.

Draft. Rich amber beer with a cream colored head. Grapefruit and malt aroma with light earth. Caramel and malt flavor with grapefruit. Medium bodied. Nice bitterness. Grapefruit and caramel lingers with light pine.
