The Sampler, NYC tap: Pours copper with a white head. Aroma is very fragrant hops: plenty of cannabis, pine, resin, and some citrus. Taste is very hoppy, but not overly bitter. Nice oily and malty backbone, but there is no question that this beer is hops first and everything else second. Slightly sweet. Quite good.

I love this beer and the blend of hops and malts! As for additional comments, I agree with SpongeRuiner and VinegarStroke below:

Flaske: Orange let diset. Duft af sød malt og masser af amerikansk hume. Lækker drikbar øl med en sødme der matcher humlen. Dejlig øl.

Pour on tap at One Eyed Betty, clear straw yellow pour with white head, aroma brought notes of big dank, pine, weedy hops into a bit of orange and grapefruit. Taste is a mix of onion, garlic, resin, hints of grass, touch of slight orange, finishing bitter, dry. Eh, the vegetal hop notes ruin it a bit.

Alcohol present and overt resin and earth hops. Lots of dank. Clear orange with a full white head that lingers. Taste is grassy and dank. High bitterness. This does not work as well as most of their awesome hop explosions.

Splitting this one with a friend it pours a very ugly color. A dirty grey copper color. Not much of a head just bubbles rise to the top. An extremely ugly beer. A pretty decent hoppy aroma. A mix of citrus and floral all around. A potent upfront hoppy flavor. More of a floral hop note in the taste. Pretty good double IPA.

Rich body and wonderful bitter hop aftertaste. Not much malt sweetness, but malt sure added to body. Reddish amber color.

VinegarStroke (368) - Napa, Alabama, USA - JUL 20, 2014
Bottle: clear, dull honey straw with light head but good lace. Lifted caramel crystal malt with huge fresh ripe hops. Tropical. Very fresh but rich. Dry not sour and with medium bitterness. Rich dense balanced and long. Huge flavor but it works.

Bottle from Brewdog bottle shop on Gray’s Inn Road. Hazy dark gold with a slim creamy white head. Aroma of pine, resin, grapefruit, citrus peel. Similar in the taste, with some caramel malts, candy, nice lingering bitterness. Full mouthfeel, well accommodated alcohol. Excellent.

Really good DIPA. On tap at Appalachian Vinter- had 6 oz which was plenty. Pours a dark gold- not much head. All pine, resin, citrus, grapefruit in the nose and palate. Definite dankness to it that works. Bit on the sweet side. Columbus hops apparent and somewhat in-your-face. Alcohol is not that transparent. Great for the style.
