From bottle to tulip. Hazy copper pour with hardly any head. Not like most DIPAíS Iíve tasted. Malty, Bready flavor with a bitter aftertaste.

aaaaaaaaaah (64) - Warren, Michigan, USA - OCT 22, 2008
Pours rocky creamy large off white head with excellent lacing. Body hue is a hazy amber. Hop aroma of heavy flowers, citrus, lemon (reminds me of bathroom sprays), and cheesy. The smell of apple, pear and heavy alcohol also present. Was not impressed with the flavor of this beer. Simi-sweet initial flavor followed by unpleasantness that finishes chalky and bitter. Maybe taste buds were messed up by previous IPA?

Bottle in tulip glass, Honolulu. Pours golden and hazy with white head that dissipates quickly. Pine and Citrus aroma. This beer is great. Good balance and I will drink much more

Hussey (60) - North Carolina, USA - JUL 17, 2012
Bottles at Bestway. Hazy orange/amber pour. Copper hues. Thin short lived head. Good lacing on my traditional Bellís tasting tulip. Wonderful citrus/piney zing to the nose. It tastes even better than it smells and looks. Caramel/chewy mouth feel. Thick malt body. The hoppy bitterness appears late in the tasting. Beautiful beer. A totally underrated brew and company. Also, a bargain: 6 pack @ $9.99 ( Bestway). This beer is the reason I started brewing my own. I wanted to clone this bastard.

Has a nice finish, but still not the bite that a strong double ipa should have. Color and appearance is nice, but lacking in the taste dept.

CJack (42) - 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

wwwdottom (38) - Breese, Illinois, USA - NOV 12, 2009
12 oz bottle - pours an opaque orange with very little head - very minimal lacing - a boatload of particles floating throughout the brew that gradually stetle at the bottom - Citrus hops in the aroma - Bitter on the palate but the malts balance it out very nicely - overall this a very nice brew!

fdr137 (35) - , New York, USA - JAN 25, 2009
12 oz bottle. Pours a golden orange color, with extreme amounts of haze. Offwhite-tannish head. Aroma is mostly hop bitterness, alcohol, and some underlying bready malty aromas. Flavor is some nice hops up front, with a base of malty flavor, followed with an aftertaste that is very alcoholic and then hops bitterness at the end.

From bottle. Pours an opaque chestnut color with a nice firm 15mm of creamy head. Aroma citrus, pines, with a touch of alcohol astringency. Tastes bitter from hops. The hops come though more in the taste than the aroma. However, they are still there in the aroma! Smells 8-9%alc but tastes around 7, for me. Still, donít care too much for the way the alcohol taste catches the tongue. It intereferes with the overall flavor, rather than complimenting it. Would like to try a dry hopped version of this. Perhaps less malts could lower the alcohol content and make it a bit crisper? Still, not too bad a DIPA, though tastes almost IPA-ish (ignoring the alcohol taste) but Iíd prefer less acidic alchohol taste. Iíve had better DIPAs.
