Bottle at home. Pour is hazy orange juice with a frothy white head and great lacing. Big honeydew and melon, papaya, apricots, mandarins, pineapple, biscuit, and grass in the aroma. Awesome fruitiness. Taste is juicy grapefruit, papaya, delicate fruit rind, more honeydew, biscuit, oranges, and maraschino cherries with a medium bitter. Full body with crisp carbonation. Clean, balanced, fruity, and extremely drinkable. This drinks amazingly smooth with giant fruit characteristics. Nice!

deyholla (6481) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - FEB 26, 2011
Bottle I shared at Ryan and Paul’s 5000th celebration. Poured a near clear gold with an orange hue and a white head that dissipated slowly to the edges. Aroma was full of pine, slightly dank, with a hint of grapefruit and tropical fruits and a bit of a grain backbone. Flavor had more grapefruit and tropical fruits as well as a strong pine note. Really nicely balanced.

Bottle at the double 5k tasting courtesy of Victor (and then someone else had one later... maybe Derek?), which is good since the keg at Blind Tiger kicked right before I ordered one that night. Pours a hazed gold with a thin white head. Big dank citrus, sweet candy on the nose. Smooth and creamy, big citrus notes. Big juicy earth and citrus. Long grapefruit finish. Awesome stuff.

dmac (3887) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - MAR 10, 2011
Bottle shared at the 5,000 party. Poured a slightly chill hazed golden body with a slightly foamy bright white head. Dank aroma of cat piss, spruce and grapefruit. Flavor is nice and bitter with notes of cat litter, grapefruit rind, pine sap. Medium to fuller bodied with strong carbonation. This was an awesome DIPA and for those who are shrugging their shoulders when they read things like "cat piss", "dank" and "pine sap" are not true hop heads!!!

nightrider (754) - encinitas, California, USA - FEB 6, 2012
Pour form a bottle courtesy of a recent trade. Slightly hazy golden orange n color. Decent white top.Very fruity aroma of grapefruit,orange, lemon, and peach. Super flavorful hop flavors of tropical goodness initially. Mouthfeel is slick and full. The bitter pungent hops kick in and perfectly balance the sweet fruity flavors. The finish is dry and bitter and long lasting. Great DIPA and would love more of this one.

Bottle, thanks to emileer, 03/01/2012. Pours apricot hue, hazy, 2-finger head with great retention and lively bubbles evident. Soft, almost floral rich hop aroma of grapefruit, tropical fruit, super dank, resin met by caramel malts, slight bread. Lots of citrus upfront in the taste, more dank hoppiness with a pine edge, caramel counterbalance washed away with bitter grapefruit finish. Medium full palate, resinous without being too sticky, alcohol hidden to remain smooth, balanced. Great Double IPA, can’t understate how dank this was, for lack of a better word. Thicker in character than, say, an Alpine brew, but just as tasty.
