A very interesting DIPA. The aroma is very light and floral. Taste is citrusy with a hint of tropical. Loving the huge bitterness at the end. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Ron (3012) - Rochester, New York, USA - JUL 25, 2015
Bottle. Pours copper with a white head. Aroma is very fragrant hops. Plenty of 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.

Draught @ The Pony Bar - Hell’s Kitchen, New York, NY
Pours hazy golden with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, caramel, citrus, grape, herbal and alcohol. Taste is medium sweet and medium bitter with a long warm, malty, citrus and grape finish. Body is full, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.

Dorado limpio y espuma blanca compacta. Aromas dulce de mermelada de melocotón con pino y menta. Cuerpo medio, sedoso, trago limpio con sabor meloso, afrutado y final de amargor intenso, que roza la astringencia, seco y persistente.

This one is worth the price. Excellent malt/hop balance, great mouthfeel, solid finish. A good one to crack open after work and nurse during a game.

BlackHaddock (4928) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 26, 2015
25th May 2015: on tap in the Yard House, Irvine. Yet another hop bomb, this light amber one had a white head and an aroma of citrusy fruits dragged through the dirt. Bitter and hop laden from the first sip to the last, could have been any number of West Coast breweries DIPA (Hanger 24 for instance). Decent and a delight for any hop lover.
