Bottle shared by Darrell. Thanks man. The beer appears a murky orange color with a small, white head. Decent aroma with hops in the front and sturdy malt bill behind. A bit sharp on the palate. Hops first, followed by a healthy malt presence. Not balanced particularly well. Medium bodied with solid carbonation. Lingering pine and hops with subtle notes of alcoholic warmth. Overall, an ok beer. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 12-17-2011

Overall, OK, but too many bittering hops, not enough aromatic ones. The aromatic hop notes were nice, however.

Tmoney99 (10660) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 24, 2012
Bottle. Poured clear copper color with an average to large frothy off-white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Medium to heavy earthy citrus hop aroma. Medium to full body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy smooth bittesweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration.This is a solid beer.

Pours an amber color. Strong hop flavors in the aroma and taste. I love hops. Dry taste. Super bitter. Mmmm.

djd07 (3565) - Houston, Texas, USA - NOV 19, 2012
Bottle. Pours a cloudy orange with a small frothy off white head leaving spotty lacing. The aroma is citrus, pine, and resin. Medium mouthfeel with a strong spicy hop bite and light citrus with lingering dry bitterness. Alcohol hidden well making it easy to drink, a good IIPA from Knee Deep.

22 ounce bottle. Served in a snifter, the beer pours an orange/amber color with about an inch off-white head. The head sticks around a while, and there’s also a lot of lacing. Aroma is nice and hoppy, it mostly smells like pine and citrusy (grapefruit, tropical fruit) hops, along with some caramel malt. Taste is similar to the aroma, the hop flavor is nice and bitter. There’s also a bit of herbal hops noticeable. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it’s a bit slick with moderate carbonation. I think it’s a good overall brew. Definitely worth a try at $6.99 a bomber.

DoublEE (783) - South Euclid, Ohio, USA - NOV 16, 2012
Tastes of the caramel malt base with some decent hop notes. Malts lead off with caramel and toffee. This leads to a moderately bitter hop character that has pine and citrus. The hops feel quite underdone in terms of aroma and actual flavor contributions. Alcohol is noticeable with some astringency.

Really great DIPA bottle from Dorothy Lane. Golden amber color, modest head, wonderful hops throughout with a bitter but smooth finish

SHIG (3586) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - NOV 3, 2012
Bottle: Poured a coppery orange with carbonated dregs consuming the glasses edges, the head was creamy and off white. Aroma was a blast of citrus grapefruit hops and light malt. The taste was bold pine and citrus hops that livened the palate but was slowly soothed by the malt balance. The tongue was left dry and slight grapefruit remained.

ddemmingjr (704) - Chagrin Falls, Ohio, USA - OCT 30, 2012
Bottle: pours clear deep golden, off white head that persists for over an hour. Nose is pungent, dank, herbal, citrus and pine resin. More resinous hops and then caramel malt sweetness takes over. Sweet and long bitterness on the finish. This grew on me and is surely a serviceable DPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
