DocLock (8244) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 6, 2006
Draft at DRE. Slightly hazy orangish color with fluffy, one-finger off-white head. Aroma of heavy tropical citric hops, plus some bready malt and fruit notes. Medium, hoppy and fruity palate, with flavors of tangering, mango, and black pepper noted. Very smooth and quaffable with well hidden alcohol, this one is outstanding!

JorisPPattyn (8198) - Ursel, BELGIUM - APR 22, 2008
Draught Reddish, very carbonated amber beer with just a B.C."H". Very flowery, lunaria , hoppy nose. Very bitter, metallic tang but still some grapey or flowery notes. Unripe strawberries. Slightly burning MF, obviously well-carbonated, at the edge of CO≤ acidity; alcoholwarming. Still a D. IPA, but IMO a slightly oblique interpretation.

mcberko (8040) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 30, 2011
12 oz. bottle, split with Matts_Property, pours cloudy orange with a medium white head. Aroma suggests something other than an IPA, with lots of wheat, caramel sweetness, and heavy malts. Flavour of muted dry hops, wheaty notes and sort of stale caramel malts. Seems like thereís either something off about this or that the malts and hops donít mesh well. Either way, not very stimulating.

BMan1113VR (7890) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUL 20, 2010
On tap. Pours with a hazed amber body and a small white head. Aroma is fruity, caramel, crystal malt, orange, kind of sticky smelling. Taste is fruity, lightly bitter, citrus and floral. Lively bubbles, but not quite as dry as I would have liked.

DrSilverworm (7782) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 15, 2011
12oz bottle. Almost totally hazy amber-orange color, lots of pretty floating particles... A visual element which I really enjoy. Minimal white head, but decent lace. Very nice crisp carbonation. Great hoppy bittersweet taste, with excellent balance. Iíve never heard of this brewery, but Iím very impressed with their DIPA... which is one of the styles Iím most familiar with

DSG (7456) - Tel Aviv, - JAN 24, 2009
UPDATED: MAY 20, 2012 Re-rate 5/18/12: Bottle sample at a Beer & Beyond strong beers tasting at Norma Jean. Hazy amber. Aroma of malt, some resinous and grapefruity hops and a bit of grainy hints. Flavor has some sweet chewy malt and a nice bitter hoppy finish. Medium-bodied. 6/3/7/3/14=3.3

(11/4/08) Draught at some place called "Sneak Joint" in Mission Beach, San Diego, that is standing where Liarís Club used to be. Cloudy orange-brown color with a stable white head. Aroma of piney hops. Bitter hoppy flavor with pine, resinous notes and a bit of malt and caramel to back it up. Medium-bodied. Decent. 7/4/7/3/14=3.5

BVery (7370) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - JUN 14, 2011
UPDATED: JAN 1, 2014 Bottle. Mildly hazy orange pour with a mostly white head. Citrus and resiny nose. Medium mouthfeel with some sharp carbonation. Sharp hop bite early, then piney resin, citrus, and malt present. Finishes clean. Really nice brew.

DuffMan (7343) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 26, 2014
Bottle, shared with Parksy and Grippitis. Deep orange colour, off white head. This is a malt-heavy IIPA, with a sweeter profile, still with an abundance of hops, ending with an aspirin-like bitterness.

arminjewell (7271) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUL 19, 2010
Pours deep orange with white head, aroma is some nice citrus and spicy hops. Taste is sweet citrus, caramel, and a rather sweet and not so bitter finish. Not a bad DIPA, but with those you usually expect a bit more.

Ibrew2or3 (7260) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAR 17, 2007
12 oz bottle that poured a hazy orange copper with nice tan head. It has a sizable aroma that seems to be both grapefruit and pine hops as well as some sweet malt. The malt seems to cause the tart grapefruit smell much sweeter. Wow, juicy bitter grapefruit flavor that flows into sweeter and sweeter citrusiness as the malts ante up and kick in. Just beyond midway bitter pine hops join the fun. Ends as any IPA or IIPA should with tasty hoppiness right into the after taste. High on the Yumminess scale.
