5000 (6300) - 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!

Not an overwhelming aroma, hoppy and citrus. Pours clear orange with a white head. Nice hop flavors balanced with a good malt backbone, smooth finish with lingering citrus flavors.

Nuffield (3671) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - DEC 31, 2012
Bottle brought from CA by my neighbor. When it was too cold, it was really unpleasant, but as it warmed the orange/citrus came through better. Hoppy but not over the top and doesn’t rise above the other Imperial IPAs I’ve had lately. Bottle.

greenhorn1 (812) - Mission Viejo, California, USA - APR 2, 2014
Picked up a corny keg for my kegirator. Pours a cloudy straw, small head and lively bubbles. Aroma is weak for a DIPA. Flavor isn’t overly hoppy, big maltiness. Notes of mild citrus and some floral. I didn’t realize it was 9.5 ABV until now, is it is well hidden. Easy to drink. Not what I would call a true DIPA, except for the ABV. I wanted this to be big, bold and hopped out.

brokensail (10935) - Orange County, California, USA - MAY 11, 2012
Pours amber in color with a finger of off-white head. Kind of past its prime, it seems. Sweet caramel and toffee malt with some bready malt. Floral hops and a bit of citrus, but not all that hoppy. A little bit herbal and piney with some floral notes. Sweet toffee and bread, but overall just kind of meh.

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

Bomber poured a hazy golden amber with a lasting creamy ivory head. Aromas of biscuit, earthiness, lemon zest, grapefruit and light pine. Palate was medium bodied and smooith. Flavors of biscuit, grapefruit, orange and light earthiness with a smooth moderatly bitter lingering grapefruit finish.
