22 oz. bottle, no date coding. Golden orange in color with thin lasting head. Aroma has sweet malt followed by mild citrus with low pine resin.

Flavor has initial sweetness then transitions into a lingering grassy hops in the center. The finish has a lasting pine bite that lingers well after the swallow. Biting bitterness that has a malty sweet base. I could see this turning to sweet if it sat awhile. Right now the hops are hitting pretty good. Enjoyable fresh which this clearly is.

rosenbergh (9912) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 24, 2015
Draught at the Yard House, Honolulu, HI. Clear golden color with a small creamy white head. Sweet fruity hops, strong bitterness, caramel malt and dryness in an extremely balanced aroma. Delicious! The flavor is heavy citrusy and piney hops, strong bitterness, caramel malt and more bitterness. Bitter it is. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Wonderful citrusy (is that a word?) aroma. Tastes exactly as it smells. Lots of citrus and lots of hops that blend great together. According to my wife, pairs great work a veggie sandwich. Tap.

First sip is awsome.... AWSOMENESS IS AWSOME!!!! Just finished walking 12km today have had very little food.... I’m sure this will kill me. Smells so good, ginger, lime, bread, fresh and crisp. Taste is epicly the same but awsome. Bitterness destroys your face after every sip. Lime, leather, earth, more stuff and things. I can drink the shit out of this. Stupid elk staying out range..... so frustrating!!!!b Beer will make it all better, yay beer. So chugable. I just drank this 650 bottle in 15min..... my head is fucked.

Bomber from Whole Foods PM. Pours turbid and bright golden with 3-finger, well-retained white head. Nose is big honeydew, pineapple, tangerine, florals. Tastes very hoppy, floral, with big notes of melon, pineapple, mango, white pepper. Super smooth and complex mouthfeel. This one is stellar.

MunBro (942) - St. Albert, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 29, 2015
Very well done DIPA! Nice and bitter while still maintaining the big citrus blast. Nice pour with a foamy head and lacing. Hazy orange. Also had notes of pine, spruce, resin, and a floral earthiness with some lemon.

Idiosynkrasie (6049) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - SEP 23, 2015
650ml bottle. Slightly cloudy, yellow-ish, deep golden colour with average to huge, thick, frothy to creamy, more than fairly lasting, persistently lacing, white head. Citrusy hoppy aroma with a minimally soapy touch, notes of lemon, lemon zest, lime, a touch of cleansing agent (Meister Proper), malty background with almond touch. Taste is citrusy hoppy, a mixture of hop and almond malt bitterness, lemon; slightly soapy finish. Sacrifices balance for virility.

Citrus and pine resin bomb. Big ol’ bitter beer with a heavy hop bitterness finish, light alcohol presence.Pours a bright orange and copper in the body with a thick, sticky off white head.The aroma is grapefruit and lemony zest citrus pronounced with a ton of pine resin, light floral and spice notes. Full bodied, light carbonation. The bitterness lingers on for quite a while with a sticky resin laced aftertaste. Good DIPA!
