14 feb 2014, bottle. Orange, clear, no bubbles. Nose is sweet caramel granola and grassy hops. Tastes of smarties candy, some pine hops, light malt. Ok. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bomber from Whole Foods PM. Poured hazy dark straw with off-white head. Nose was caramel malt, piney hops, fruit. Tasted heavily caramel malty with a heavy resiny hop load, finishing syrupy and clean. The hops weren’t overpowering, and the ABV was well hidden. I guess I would have liked a heavier hop flavor in this, as the malt seemed to overpower the hops. Still, this one was a nice libation and paired well with cheddar cheese. God damn it, Roscoe, go get those Duke boys!

4oz pour at Max’s Hop Fest 2013. Pours a burnt orange with zero head. Nose is sweet, pears, apple, lemon, malt. Piney flavor, grapefruit, lemon, malt, caramel, brown sugar. Bitter finish. Could probably be bumped up in both hopping and malt.

Nate (3553) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 5, 2013
On tap at Benjamin’s. Mild hoppy nose, not what I’d expect from IIPA. Deep amber clear with thin head. Medium bodied with medium-high carbonation. Very mild beer for IIPA. Malt sweetness with butterscotch, caramel, and light hop bitterness. Very little bitterness anywhere, with sweet smooth after.

Very hoppy with varied undertones dependent on hop varietal used. Recent batch was less citrus but still had a full flavor.

ReggieDunlap (2924) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 29, 2012
Pours a clear golden/orange with a medium lt tan head. Aroma of mild citrus...very faint. Flavor is fairly balanced between caramel, candied fruits, light citrus, and earthy bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium/full and the finish is dry and earthy/bitter.

NikkTwist (1387) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 2, 2012
Draft at Tattooed Mom. Clear copper pour. Fizzy foamy white head. Hoppy but has a nice gentle caramel sweetness. Tangerine peel. Wildflower honey. Nice burnt wood undertones. Deeper and more complex than other Double (or even Imperial) IPAs. ABV is high but is almost suspiciously easy to drink. Nice and smooth, like a well aged and blended Irish Whiskey. Maybe too pleasant, because the alcohol will sneak up on you. Way better than I expected!

Nejhleader (1182) - Lemoyne, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 4, 2012
UPDATED: JUL 17, 2013 A nice brew, had a nice presence of hops, not really sure what kind, Body could be a bit thicker to better accommodate the hops but still a good brew. 7/17/13 Had a pint at LBC harrisburg. Not what I remembered it. Strong hop presence was gone, in fact very medium hop taste. Poor Batch or Poor consistency? Disappointed

Travlr (9999) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - AUG 18, 2012
The brewer dropped this one off at my local in a mason jar. Clear amber color, medium white head. Aroma of pine, grass, subtle herb. Taste has a malty start, but decent balance, with spice and light pine. Not bad..

Draft at brewub Harrisburg. Pours light orange with a thin white head. Nice pine notes on the nose. Not a ton on the tongue. If I really concentrate I’ll get a bit of floral. It does hide its 10% well finishes clean. It’s pretty comatose for a DIPA.
