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

megabeergulper (13) - California, USA - NOV 4, 2015
Several glasses, with friends to help, over 3wks consumed off of a 5 gallon keg in my posession. Kept on 6psi co2 at 31dg. Poured into a room temperature thick bottom pilsner glass. This is one of the best "double" ipa beers available widely in northern California. Pours Sun gold with fine white foamy head that quickly laces the glass as it dissipates. Nose of pineapple, dank aroma hops, and ethanol, with yeast esters to follow. Taste is maltahol (this is a good thing) with plenty of clean/fresh hops that build for 2-3 seconds as it washes across the toungue. Minimal astringency, upper range ABV, and slightly sweet malt/bread flavor keeps the hops from building up on the palate, which give a suprisingly crisp and clean finish for a beer listed as bitter.

AirForceHops (4989) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 24, 2015
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 (9144) - 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

katrinaez (770) - norristown, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 24, 2015
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.

Cirrhosis (1280) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 3, 2015
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.
