Drake (11937) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 7, 2009
12 ounce bottle from Whole Foods Market, Charlottesville, VA. Pours a hazy copper color with a large frothy head. Good head retention and lacing. Aroma of sticky citrus hops with a tropical and herbal finish. Taste is bitter citrus hops along with mango, melon and a resiny finish. Smooth, medium bodied. The bitterness lingers at the front of the tongue. Good beer.

hopdog (11653) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 18, 2006
On tap. Poured a deep orange color with a smaller sized off white head. Aromas of citrus and caramel. Tastes of caramel, citrus / oranges, and some melons. Definitely sweeter (brown sugary) than it was bitter. Light alcohol in the finish (but overall well hidden). I would have preferred more of a hoppy / bitterness to balance out the sweetness.

crossovert (11424) - Illinois, USA - FEB 20, 2011
Comes in a stubby 12 oz bottle with a slightly different label than pictures. No apparent date. Pours into my american pint glass with a full 2 finger, lumpy, off-white head and a murky apple cider colored body. Smells very sweet and citrusy, very nice for a DIPA. California styled in the scent department for sure. Taste has a decent malt backbone but the hops are the main show with some cirtus lemon and grapefruit notes and a bitter finish. Not as intense as its other west coast counterparts, but still a solid tasting DIPA. Mouthfeel is a little too smooth for me. Overall a decent offering in the DIPA category, not to malty, and enough hops to excite the palate somewhat, it is a bit pedestrian but is better than the lower tier beers such as Maximus.

Sammy (11247) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 5, 2009
Very decent hoppy plus IPA. Pours golden colour, with significant beige head, that leaves very decent lace. Only one-third of a litre, I will drink it! Pleasant aroma, even a touch of roast!?! Above average creamy moutfeel, citrus in the background of this beershake. Hops dominate the malt, drinkable. Found at the Warehouse in Cleveland.

daknole (10883) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - OCT 24, 2008
Bottle from total wine. Amber and cloudy...nice head. Aroma is nice with a good dose of floral hops, sweet malt and some citrus notes. Flavor is not half bad at all. Very fruity and then finish has a perfect hop bite. Not overly bitter, but the hops speak through the malt very well. Good beer for the price.

shrubber85 (10760) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - NOV 3, 2007
Bottle. Orange/pine hops aroma. Hazy orange-amber color with large head and nice lacing. Strong pine hops and sweet caramel hops flavor. Nicely blended. A pleasure to drink.

hopscotch (10645) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 19, 2008
Bottle... Murky orange ale with thousands of white floaties tooling around the inside of the glass. Small, creamy, off-white head that is decently retained. Fruity, malty aroma delivers big notes of citrus, fuzzy and tropical fruits caramel, toffee and praline. Full-bodied and chewy with moderate carbonation. Robust caramel sweetness balanced nicely by a ballsy bitterness. Alcohol is detectable, but not overbearing. Caramelly, bittersweet finish. Kudos to scraff for shipping this bottle down from Baltimore!

adnielsen (10490) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - FEB 15, 2011
Bottle @ home. Pours a red ruby red-orange appearance with a smaller cream colored head that dissipates pretty quickly. Nose has citrusy hops and fairly strong pale/amber malts. Big pale malty flavor creates a big sweetness. The strong citrus hoppiness offsets that sweetness somewhat. Strong flavor with some burn on the finish. Not bad but not one of the better DIPAs.

"earthy and sweet malt, juicy hops, but perhaps not quite enough. a decent IIPA, but nothing I’d go out of my way for. pretty good fresh, otherwise skip."
