5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JAN 18, 2013
Bottle: † Amberish, pale haze, moderate to large frothy off-white head, nice lacing. † Citrus peel, pith, hops, and alcohol on the nose. † Similar on the tongue, not too bright, but thankfully the 9.5% really only comes through on the nose. † Bitter but not biting, decent malt background, mild citrus sweetness. † Body and mouthfeel are moderate. † Nota big example, but not overly done on either side. † Could be a little brighter, but as is its pretty enjoyable. † Thanks Ron!

Clear amber color with ivory head. Tea leaf, caramel, grapefruit aromas. medium body with average co2. Nicely bitter pine, tea leaf hoppy flavors with a caramel base brew-mildly boozy spicy finish--almost good

Idiosynkrasie (6524) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JUN 29, 2014
650ml bottle. Slightly cloudy, golden colour with average, frothy, fairly lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Piney hoppy aroma, biscuity malty background, hints of mandarine, orange, pineapple, a floral touch. Taste is initially crisp bitter hoppy, giving way for fruity and piney notes, some peach, mango, mandarine, biscuity malt basis; slightly mineral, bitter hoppy and minimally soapy finish, a touch of warming alcohol. Relatively light body for a DIPA, nice fruitiness, no challenge for hopheads.

tiong (6483) - Espoo, FINLAND - JUL 9, 2014
650ml bottle from Saveur-biere.com

Pours orange with a white head. Aroma of pine, malts, resinous hops, grass and citrus. Taste is heavy, malty, piney and grassy with some citrusy and caramely notes. Finish is heavy, malty and piney with some citrus and grass. Doesnít feel super fresh, but not very old either. Any ways, quite heavy and a bit dull malty double IPA

BlackHaddock (6375) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUN 5, 2014
On tap at the brew outlet on Columbia St, San Diego on 18th March 2014. Tower 10ís big hoppy brother came cloudy like itís little bro but with an alcohol kick and a sweeter feel within. The off golden body had a foaming head that tried to stay around and give lacing. More hops and more maltiness, I enjoyed it more than the 10, most likely because it had more depth and flavour. It appealed to my sweet tooth also. Iím no expert on DIPAís but I liked this one.

riversideAK (6160) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - MAR 6, 2016
Softer fruit nose - apricot pineapple and cookie dough a little cheesey hop, past its prime perhaps. Great hazy orange pour, creamy head and lace. Sweeter cookie dough flavor apricot pineapple, not really bitter, balanced and a little old tasting. Would like to try fresher.

dwyerpg (5673) - 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 itís a decent Imperial IPA

TimE (5085) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAY 23, 2015
Light golden color. Frothy white head. Very heady nose with floral and fruit notes. Full body sticky mouth, resiny, but lacks depth. Alcohol is fairly well. Nice clean IIPA that is enjoyable but nothing too special.
