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

Very impressive double IPA, right up there with the best of em. Smells like grapefruit, citrus flavor follows with a little pine. Very dank hop flavor.

SlackerMads (1548) - Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 25, 2014
Bottle date 2014-04-22. Light hazy orange with a medium sized creamy off white head. Citrus, pine, honey, candy floss, candied orange peel, light sweet malts, white bread, warming alcohol. Full body, oily/creamy texture, soft carbonation, medium sweet and bitter. Soft finish with warming alcohol. It is big, but not overly sweet or raw, actually somewhat soft for its size.

skoisirius (1632) - Earth, Washington, USA - AUG 14, 2014
Tap and bottle. Another excellent hop oriented brew from KD. A tiny bit more tame than some of theirs, but still piney and citrused out like crazy. Good stuff!

Bottle consumed at Cropredy ’Fairports Annual Reunion’ Festival, Cropredy, Oxon, Thursday 7th August 2014 Big malty hoppy beer, it is a touch sweet but as you might expect it does have a good hoppy bite. Drinking this alongside a 2.7% Sun Dancer a great comaprison beer, however it really is a case of I don’t know which I like best. A7 A4 T7 P4 Ov15 3.7 .

mansquito (3349) - Nueva York, New York, USA - AUG 10, 2014
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.

Defreni (2603) - Husum, DENMARK - JUL 28, 2014
Flaske: Orange let diset. Duft af sød malt og masser af amerikansk hume. Lækker drikbar øl med en sødme der matcher humlen. Dejlig øl.
