22 oz. bottle from the grocery store. Pale golden color with nice carbonation and white foamy head. Strong floral aroma with hints of citrus. Wow! Great bitterness with some grapefruit tastes, a lively finish. Being an IPA lover I really enjoyed this.

Keg at The Hanging Bat. Clear golden body with a thin off-white head. Steady carbonation. Great lacing. Aroma of peach, pine, grapefruit and freshly opened bag of hops. Flavour is peppery and very hoppy - notes of pine, boozy orange, earth, honey and lemon. Medium body with an oily texture. Lively fizz. Right out of nowhere, one of my all-time favourite beers. A truly outstanding DIPA.

Hopmaestro (110) - Örebro, SWEDEN - OCT 29, 2014
This baby here has a thick powerful aroma of malts and hops, simple as that. The taste is overpowering from both malt and citrus hops, yet balanced and well refined. It’s actually quite one dimensional, but so good that it doesn’t really matter. Get it!

pivnizub (8950) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - OCT 27, 2014
Bouteille:Deep golden, a bit hazy, mid-sized rocky off-white head, medical-herbal nose with a bready to caramelly background, in which a secret fruitiness is still detectable; moderate to solid bitter-sweet flavour, nearly full bodied; lingering herbal-medical finish with slight alcohol burn and still some breadyness. Just good, not too exciting…

Unde (381) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 27, 2014
Clear orange looks with delicate head on top. Some lacing sticks to the glass. Aroma has lots of citrus, sweeter fruits and orange. Taste starts with citrus, then tropical fruits, slightly on the sweet side before the bitter ending. Medium body and medium-to-high carbonation. You can’t go wrong with american DIPA!

Tap at olutexpo. Clear deep golden color, white head. Nicely malty, hoppy, fruity and balanced.

McNeillR (1249) - SCOTLAND - OCT 24, 2014
Bright hazy golden and a nice dusting of filmy head and soft lacing. Zesty tangerine and treacle soaked grapefruit. Tense sweetness throughout but masked by a dangerously pithy bitterness. Grapefruit, of course, but a herby spice and silky solid carbonation. Finishes not too gritty, bitter citrus and puckering sweetness on the linger just makes the next sip even easier.

From a bottle. Pours clear bright copper with a thick bubbly off white head and decent lacing. Tastes like nutty caramel, dry pine hops, grapefruit, earthy, doughy malt. Dry feel, light/medium body, and low carbonation. Smells like sweet nutty caramel, earthy malt, and grapefruit hops.

"the look was nice, and what is expected of the style...ich thick foam resting atop a golden orange body. Even the cap smelled of resinous hops. the aroma is quite appealing...good mix of hops here, some spice, pine, and citrus. mouthfeel hides the alcohol well and goes down smooth. flavor is good, grapefruit & pine resin, with a touch of spice and alcohol. Overall, a very good brew, especially for hopheads. Similar to Anderson Valleys, but better. Reminds one a little of the fresh aroma of a Lagunitas Imperial Red or IPA - hopefully this one isn’t plagued by consistency issues like those 2. "
