Sample at The Bistro DIPA-Festival, February 8. Hazy golden/orange with a white head. Aroma and taste of mango, pineapple and grapefruit, Also some light notes of caramel and malt. Not bad at all.

camborne (655) - Hopkins, Minnesota, USA - JAN 19, 2014
Pretty tasty, it did not have as much of a hops punch that I was expecting. Was a tad bit to malt forward for my taste. The stone fruit notes were nice though.

CJack (41) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JAN 18, 2014
Bottle pour a deep thick copper, nice tan head, great lacing. Faint aroma belies the fantastic full flavors - hop-forward, a bitter punch complemented by floral sweetness and strong sweet/bready malt back. Great balance, mouthfeel is almost sticky with hop resin. Substantial gravity is well concealed. Great DIPA! ---Rated whilst imbibing

Dr_Fellini (464) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - JAN 10, 2014
Bottle to glass. Pours a murky deep amber orangish color with a creamy tan head. Aroma is faint citrus. Flavor is moderately biter, but without many other hoppy characteristics. Bitterness lingers in the finish. Ok imperial. Nothing special.

hman43 (360) - Pinehurst, North Carolina, USA - JAN 2, 2014
This pours as a amber with an orange hue to it. it is a bit cloudy. The head is actually kind of peach in color. It actually has a bit of a caramel smell mixed with the citrus. There are apricot flavors that dominate the flavor with other hops and malts. It is not as bitter as must brews in this category.

Maris (1000) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - JAN 1, 2014
From a 355ml bottle on 1/1/2014. Pours a murky dark orange with a small head. The aroma is primarily fruity hops. Flavour wise, thereís lots of sweet caramel malt, and sweet and tart fruit (mandarin, lemon, orange, pineapple). There is a firm bitterness at the back, but little of the pine and resin that features in so many US IPAs. This is not a typical imperial/double - itís quite restrained, even if itís strength doesnít surprise. Not quite top flight but very pleasant drinking.

found this beer while up in Sioux City over Christmas visiting my in-laws. Really enjoyed this beer. So much so that I took a Sixer home with me. Not to heavy on the hops (which Iím fine with, but this worked well without it).

Very nice clean aroma taste is well balanced not too hoppy and not a harsh aftertaste. Very clean and crisp.
