Leighton (10483) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 18, 2013
Sampled at GBBF 2013, London - Day 2. Pours clear gold with a modest, foamy white froth head. Heavy resinous hops in the nose with big mango, orange and grapefruit. Medium sweet flavor with rich and juicy citrus, melon, mango, pine, pale malt sugars. Medium to full bodied with fine carbonation. Well and resinous to finish with lightly dry citrus now, juicy character, sticky sugars. Rich and hefty but very solid. Good condition, too, which is key.

BeerandBlues2 (9400) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - MAY 11, 2012
Bottle. Pours lightly hazy copper with a large, frothy white head, long retention with excellent lacing. Aroma is fragrant and bountiful pine, citrus, floral, and tropical fruit hops with nicely supporting fruity esters. The malt aroma component is hidden behind the hop/ester bouquet, but presents itself as light biscuit and grain malt. Flavor is heavy upfront bitterness with huge hop notes; malt supports with help from some fruity esters. The bitterness lingers and dries out the finish, though the malt sweetness does not fade readily. Moderate to full body with medium-high carbonation.

DJMonarch (9159) - Northwich, Cheshire, ENGLAND - APR 3, 2011
From the Jug at the GABF, Colorado Convention Center Denver 18/09/2010 Big hop aroma. Clear golden coloured and extremely hoppy with a pine flavour. A hint of dryness in a very bitter malt finish.

TwoSipDip (8898) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 26, 2012
Bottle @ home. Pours a hazy, golden orange appearance with a big, cream colored head. A touch spicy and earthy aroma that is far more dominated by a nice grapefruity, sappy piney hoppy smell. A bit toasty malty, light toffee, mildly bitter, grapefruit, earthy, piney hoppy flavor with some resin and booze on the finish. Pretty decent brew at $5.99/bomber.

JoeMcPhee (8313) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 21, 2010
Deep golden pour. The nose is a little bit sweet with lots of orange peel and some other light fruity character. A fresh pale malt flavour through the middle with a kiss of booziness. Lingering bitterness, but it comes across as a bit medicinal.

phaleslu (6204) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 26, 2010
First New Mexico brew, and it’s a good one. 22 oz. bottle from erway- thanks again, Jeff! Pours a clear copper color with a big, frothy off-white head that leaves plenty of soapy lacing in the glass. Aroma of herbal hops, pine, caramel malts, grapefruit citrus, and some floral notes. Flavor of pine resin, floral and herbal hops, tea, caramel malts, and grapefruit. Light-medium bodied, with sharp carbonation and a leafy, malty mouthfeel and bitter aftertaste. Very nice DIPA!
