bottle. gold color. pale malt toastiness buried by bright american high-acid citrus and pine hops. medium-thick body, decent malt structure, bright and snappy across the back. a bit too chewy / syrupy but otherwise clean and drinkable.

thirdeye11 (5634) - Dallas, Texas, USA - OCT 8, 2011
(Growler thanks to jyoungsbcp) bright gold with no head. Nose is dank, grapefruit, orange, citrus rind, light lime, and a bit of alcohol. Taste of bitter citrus rind, grapefruit, not super balanced, very bitter finish, and uncarbonated for the most part.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - OCT 5, 2011
Draft @ brewery tap. 24K gold color with nice lacing. Chewy aroma smells big with piney hop. Big juicy body carries the hop well, which remains in the pine pocket. One of the better ones in the lineup.

Oakes (12789) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 25, 2011
Golden. Thin head. Minty, leafy, slightly fruity aroma. Lots of bitterness. Light herbal, fruity hop character. Pale malts provide a little bit of balance. A decent example, not too rich.

Thanks to jjfoodie for sharing this bottle. The beer pours a yellowish-gold color with a white head. The aroma is awesome. I get a lot of pine, oranges and papaya. An extremely fruity smelling Double IPA. I also get a little bit of biscuit malt in the aroma. The flavor is just as nice. I get quite a bit of resinous pine, which mixes nicely with tropical fruit such as pineapple and papaya. The bitterness level is about medium. A very easy drinking Double IPA. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Draft (from notes). Pours a clear golden amber color with a medium sized white head. The aroma is big citrus hops that remind me of mandarin oranges. The flavor has the big citrus component as well with enough sweeter caramel malt to add balance. Very drinkable, more like an IPA than a double. Overall, pretty nice.

smaynard6000 (659) - Apopka, Florida, USA - SEP 1, 2011
Pours a bright gold with a foamy white head. Intense hop aroma and flavor. Light bodied and leaves a touch of resin on the palate. I enjoyed this one a lot.

jcr (2221) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - AUG 13, 2011
Draft at Santa Fe taproom. Hazy golden body. Fizzy white head, rapidly diminishing. Aroma of resin, grapefruit, citrus and grain. The flavor is moderately sweet and moderately bitter. It finishes lightly sweet and moderately to heavily bitter. Long bitter finish. Medium to full body, velvety texture, moderate carbonation. Too bad the bitterness masks whatever else might be in this beer. So not near as flavorful as DIPAs like Dreadnaught. Actually liked Marble’s IPA better.
