What a disappointment. Had done interesting for aromas and taste initially like pineapple and citrus, but the alcohol and malt just make this beer drag across the tongue. No thanks.

TURDFERGUSON (4008) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUN 19, 2012
Bottle. Orange amber with a steady white head. Lots of malt upfront with some orange, grapefruit, and pine on the back end. Drinkable, balanced flavor with a dirty bitter finish.

arkurzynski (1684) - Combined Locks, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 18, 2012
Deep amber orange. Nice, big pine and tropical fruit hop nose. Clean toasted malt, caramel and biscuit with grapefruit/tropical fruit bitterness. Finishes with the perfect malt/hop balance. Lighter than anticipated, but highly drinkable.

emacgee (4277) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - JUN 16, 2012
Pours a very sharp and clean ruby amber with one finger of sandy tan head. Wonderful nose, like candied citrus and peaches. Citrusy and floral with some caramel malt notes. Flavor shows a lot of citrus rind and candy notes. Medium to full bodied with a moderate hop bite and piney finish. Some resin in the flavor.

daknole (10045) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JUN 15, 2012
Apricot colored pour, mostly a white head. Sticky malts and citrus hops blend together nicely in the nose. Flavor is sticky and a bit more malt that I would have liked/expected. Still a pretty good example of the style.

DalzAle (2002) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - JUN 11, 2012
Bottle. Clear dark orange pour, a little bit of head and a very musty sweet hops aroma. Flavor is slightly sweet oranges, medium piney hop bite and very clean and crisp on the aftertaste. Solid beer all around, and pretty well balanced for 9% ABV.

sherm1016 (1218) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 9, 2012
12oz bottle from Discount Liquor Mikwaukee, 2012 vintage. Pours a crystal clear, deep amber color with a thin white head. Aroma is hoppy, citrus, grapefruit, some pine. Medium on the palate with light, creamy carbonation. Flavor is sweet, malty, balance, pine hops, with a light bitter finish. A good DIPA.

jandd1983 (2986) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - JUN 9, 2012
It poured a copper color with an off-white head. The aroma was of some citrus, a slight pine scent, caramel and grapefruit. The taste was similar with pine, some hoppiness as well. A very good Imperial IPA.

nsquishee (627) - Richfield, Minnesota, USA - JUN 6, 2012
Bright orange/amber colored with little head. Very clear. Smells like mandarin oranges, lemon,and citra hops. Tastes tart and sweet and immediately bitter from aggressive hopping. Finishes with sweetness and a dry lingering bitterness hiding behind the noticeable alcohol burn. Flavors of orange, hosp, mint, coriander, and lemon peel. Very complex. Very boozy. Very good. I recommend all beers in the Big Eddy series.
