Pours a cloudy golden copper colour with a white head. Aroma of strong floral hops, grass, some caramel and strong herbal notes. Flavour of strong caramel malts, strong floral hops, juicy fruitiness, grass, really strong herbal notes and some licorice. Really strong and fruity finish with floral bitterness and strong herbs. A great balance with strong fresh fruity bitterness. Excellent stuff.

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - MAY 2, 2013
22oz bottle from Brown Jug, leftover from the Culmination Fest. Pours cloudy yellow orange with a foamy off white head and a few chunks. Aroma is full of tropical fruits like pineapple, some cat pee/pine, malt and a light sweet bubble gum. Flavor is firmly bitter hops with a clean malt and yeast profile, very light alcohol. Medium body with a dry bitter finish and a soft mouth feel. This one is packed with tropical hop aroma and flavor while being very well balanced. I love this beer.

thome50 (1018) - Boringville aka Irvine, California, USA - MAY 1, 2013
Bottle from the 5th Anniversary event, thanks Ernesto! Pours a deep and slightly hazy golden with big white head. Aroma is cat piss and some ground meat. Not that pleasant and not the tropical fruit bomb that others have described. Taste is more bitter than anything else. The fruit is not apparent as the beer is cold but nectarine comes into play as the beer warms. Very thick mouth feel which is nice but gives this beer a seemingly bigger ABV than 8%. My enjoyment increases as the beer warms but this just isn’t what I was expecting. Maybe a little papaya in there which is pretty much the only fruit I dislike which might play into my rating. Overall, not digging this as a top 25 best DIPA on RB.

Zeeben (36) - Goffstown, New Hampshire, USA - APR 28, 2013
Pours a deep shade of orange. Half a finger of fine white foam that quickly dies down. The nose, this is what heaven smells like, huge citrus bomb with heavy passion fruit florals. Fabtastic beer, loves the hop butter balance.

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 15/20
Lukaduke (2113) - Portland, Maine, USA - APR 28, 2013
Pours a rich golden color with a finge ror two of sticky white foam. The nose was a bit restrained with some tropical fruit, grapefruit and fresh grass opening up as the glass warmed and I gave it some agitation. On the palate it followed the nose with a touch more punch but a slightly chalky mouthfeel especially on the late palate leading toward the finish. Solid beer but no where near my expectations...
