Ober (2811) - Bommelerwaard, NETHERLANDS - AUG 8, 2012
A clear orange/yellow colored beer with a white head. The aroma of sweet with bitter (a little dishwater, maybe the glass wasn’t proper). Th taste of sweet, some bitter with spices. The aftertaste is sweet with bitter.

22oz bottle pours a slight amber in color with white head. There’s not a strong aroma. Pine grapefruit and citrus taste.

mcberko (6560) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 16, 2013
22 oz. bottle, pours a cloudy orange amber with a medium white head. Aroma brings out a big caramel malt backbone, resinous hops, and some residual sugar. Flavour brings out some notes of yeast, resinous hops, some bready malts, and some dry caramel malts. There are some sweet fruity notes that kick in later. Finishes malty sweet, with a bit of dark fruits. Not the hoppiest IIPA out there by any means - overtaken by the sweeter malt profile on this. Drinkable in smaller amounts - I wouldn’t want a pint of this. Decent.

Not in your face hops, faded or this is it as should have been recent batch. Still nicely drinkable, thanks StephanSD.

22 oz bottle with a friend skunky aromas. Flavors were better but the hips didnt match up to the double I had expected.

madvike (2753) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 17, 2013
On tap at the Costa Mesa brewpub - Pours clear light amber with a foamy white head. Nose is caramelly sweet malt, muted pine hops, and not much else. Taste is tons of sweet honey malt, muted pine hops, and a long malty finish. Medium body with nice carbonation. Just too malty and not enough hop punch.

Barreras (987) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - JUL 19, 2014
Pours a clear copper color with a floral aroma. This beer is true double IPA in flavor. Bold hoppy aftertaste, with a floral flavor. Mild spiciness that lingers a little while after the swallow. Nothing too fancy but nicely balanced.
