RedSox2004 (1436) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - JUL 24, 2015
Clear golden amber, one-finger dense white head and very nice lace. Aromas of leafy hops, pulpy citrus, biscuits and a hint of medicine/band aids. Deep resinous hop bitterness up front countered y a strong bready/biscuity malt sweetness, but the hops win. Medium to full body, creamy smooth, moderate carbonation and a rich hoppy finish.

dwyerpg (4871) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JUN 2, 2015
Intense and bitter, this beer is very hoppy and piney. The finish is more malty than I like, but overall it’s a decent Imperial IPA

beer-yum (818) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - JUN 2, 2015
Huge pine-citrus aroma in an amber pour. Taste is surprisingly laid back = superb for the strength. Perfect hop forward balance with a full sweet malt body and a sustained clean bitter finish. Has to be one of my favourite DIPAs - will need to directly compare to the competition (oh joy)!

Decent DIPA, piney but a bit on the caramel side. I think that this might be an older bottling. I wish they would date their bottles.
