Bottle from bleeng.
Pours a decent cheddar orange with an aroma of slight pine sap immersed in grapefruit juice. Flavor is pine grapefruit and citrus rind. Average mouthfeel. Not bad.

Bomber thanks to my cousin Linda. Deep gold, slightly hazy with a nice white fluffy head. Sweet, resiny, fruity nose. Taste of the same with alcohol very evident. Very carbonated with some nose bubbles. Medium palate. Very drinkable and well done.

Meh, this is a pretty standard dipa for me - clear golden pour - thick, lasting head - fresh, peppery, herbal, minty hop aroma start things off on a positive note - the flavor doesn’t live up to this - it might not be as sweet as some dipas, but it is still fairly sweet for my taste, especially in the finish - bitter but not abrasive - decent earth hop flavor - not too bad, but not stand out - a bit of a let down, since I thought their regular ipa was fantastic.

Ancient backlog, from tap. Aroma of resin, flowers, pollen, citrus. Flavor again very resinous with big sweet malts as well as lemon and marmalade. Not too sweet for a DIPA when all is said and done. Gets a bit grassy as it goes. Still quite solid.

From very fresh keg just brought home from Marble Brewery. Pours a slightly hazed orange with thick head. Incredibly pungent hop aroma emanates from this beer with strong notes of citrus. The taste follows the smell, the hop bite is as intense as they come with little malt. When i say the hop bite is intense i mean INTENSE, so strong it would put off anyone who doesn’t love hops, but this is partially accountable to the freshness of the keg. Body is medium light, bitterness subsides quite well and doesn’t stick considering how strong it initially is. Personally, I love it. Rock solid!

Bottle thanks to scott. Poured a clear gold/amber color. Aroma of Bo, earth, caramel, citrus, yeast. Flavor of Bo, earth, pine, caramel, and citrus. Similar to ipa.

ajm (1066) - Los Angeles, California, USA - FEB 2, 2010
Tap at the brewery. This was effing solid, just like their single IPA. Nose of orange peel, malt, resin and dank hops. Flavor very much the same - a perfect bitter twang where the hops overbalance the malts just so. Fragrant and refreshing.

Stinky. First sip is a punch in the face. Pucker up. But everyone is spot on this is really good towards the end of that bomber, I wish I had more.

UPDATED: JUL 30, 2011 Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy orange with a thick white head. Aroma is a bit odd -- lots of grassy hops, kinda smells like onion grass mixed with a sweaty gym bag. It gets better once you get used to the oddness. Flavor is pretty similar with the same onion grass/sweat qualities, plus some hop resins and a solid caramel malt base. Bitter finish. Took a little while to warm up to but by the end it was quite enjoyable. Great IIPA! 7/4/8/4/15 [3.8/5]

Update 7/30/2011: Had on tap at the brewpub. Pours a hazy orange red with a thick white head. Aroma of lots of sweaty, piney, and grassy hops. Flavor of lots of caramel malts, bitter hops, and some sweaty hops. Solid malt backbone, overall the beer is fairly malty. Hmm, looks like my ratings from both tap and bottle are nearly identical! 8/4/8/4/14 [3.8/5]

Draft at the brewery,pours golden orange with little head, smell is citrus-y and earthy. Taste is straigth hop bitterness and is really smooth. Just a step up from the IPA!
