Pours hazy dark orange. A very grapefruity aroma, almost overpowering and not fresh. The flavor is dominated by the hops, perhaps too much. There is a distinct bitterness that tapers off toward the end leaving a pleasant, mellow dryness on the back of the tongue. This is its most redeeming quality.

Fratto (2524) - Arlington, Texas, USA - SEP 3, 2010
Bottle from pikapp327. The label ABV was 8.2, but there was a sticker covering every bottle with "ABV 9.3%". Brownish orange pour with a white head. Aroma is brown sugar and earth. Taste is brown sugar, heavy pine hops, caramel, and dirt.

mkel07 (2520) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - MAR 5, 2012
Draught at The Pub Monte Carlo in Las Vegas. I had never heard of this brewery before and this beer is one of those rare gems that you come across, no expectations, just drink and see. There was a bold fruity hop aroma bursting out of the glass. The flavour was great and right up there with the best IPA’s tha I have had. The flavour was well balanced and not overpowering in the hop department.

12oz can poured into glass. While I was intrigued by having a DIPA out of a can this one didn’t really live up to my expectations. There just wasn’t enough hop character to it and it was overall pretty boring.

Bomber from Casa De Oro. Very hazy orange color upon pouring. Looks like a very unfiltered hefe. Sweet nose with only a moderate amount of hoppiness. Very dry and spiced hops up front. A bit of sweetness, finishing of with some sharp peppery hops. A little alcohol as well.

Bottle. Well last to rate my own shared bottle, figures. Hazy brune pour with some whitish head. Maybe this was an off bottle or what not but the hops have disintegrated, and are giving a soapy flavor off. Malty finish with some warming.

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - JAN 21, 2013
Can. Very cloudy amber/orange with a huge foamy head that lingers around for a while to form rocky peaks. Aroma of sweet citrus peel, tropical fruit, pine and herbal tea. Flavor of sweet malt and oranges, rough hop bitterness and a well hidden alcohol. This is a very odd beer, lots of sweet citrus and malt with a weird abrasive hop presence.
