For those mornings when you have to cut right to the chase, this is the one. Sure to blast through just about anything still lingering from the night before, this mouthful of Hops and huge rich Malt has a gaurantee built right into the name!

22oz Bottle. Pours a clear golden with a white head falling off to a delicate lace. Aroma is citrus, pine, fresh hops very in your face hops, awesome! Flavor is super hoppy up front pine citrus with a nice balance of malty sweetness and a huge hoppy bitter finish. Awesome brew, I’ll have to grab more before it’s gone.

m4rest88 (387) - Beverly Hills, California, USA - OCT 12, 2008
Pours with a dark, golden hue with almost no head. Aroma is hoppy, very hoppy, with some dark fruits, caramel, toffee, pine needles. There is a slight alcohol note in the nose. The beer has a sweet beginning flavor, with a heavy bitter ending with lots of hops. The nose that is full of hoppiness stays constant in the taste. Medium mouthfeel, with light carbonation.

oakbluff (432) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - OCT 9, 2008
on tap at Toronado mid September. Golden pour with orange highlites, good smelling brew - fresh pine. Taste- medium bodied with full malt presence to go along with hop assault. Hops not overwhelming but still have a nice kick. Pretty balanced for a hefty dipa

Drake (10695) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - OCT 5, 2008
Served on draft at Tyler’s Taproom in Durham, NC. Gold color with a 1-finger fine, snow-white head. Citrus and resin hop aroma with a subtle maltiness. Taste is a similar hop profile, but with a brown sugary maltiness. Full bodied.

BeerHawk (1810) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - OCT 5, 2008
Bottle shared by Springslicker. Poured orange with a white head that left light lacing. Nice hoppy aroma of pine and grapefruit. The flavor found lots of pine and hoppy citrus with a good caramel backing. Medium body, crisp, moderate bitterness throughout. Very nice!

CelticBrew (912) - The Crystal Coast, North Carolina, USA - OCT 5, 2008
On tap at Tyler’s in Durham, had a somewhat hazy orange hue, aroma of strong floral hops, pine resins. Flavour was full bodied, both hoppy and malty, and pine resins abound, extremely sticky with tropical fruit sweetness. Very quaffable, hard to believe its a double. A tremendous IPA beer.

draft @ uber - finally a crack at this IIPA thanks to after4ever; clear orange with foaming white head; wow, just dripping with sweet, candy hops; body on the thin side and maybe the only drawback of this one; even with that, there are lots of malts to mix with the overload of hops; smells great and drinks with much more sweetness than bitterness; along the same lines flavor-wise as pliny the elder, but just not quite up top that level

trokini (1025) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 29, 2008
Tap @ The Local. Pours clear orange-gold with a bubbly white head. Rich hop aroma of grapefruit, tangerine, pine, and lemongrass. Bold, fresh taste. Lots of citrus, with the tangerine taking the forefront. Very crisp and refreshing without overpowering. Love the resiny hops with the caramel malt taking a backseat and not making this some syrupy sugar nightmare. Dare I say, one of the best DIPA’s I’ve ever had.
