drjay44 (2568) - Salida, Colorado, USA - JAN 5, 2013
650 ml. bottle. Pours a thick, well retained, off white head, with extensive lacing, over a slightly hazy, gold (SRM 5) body......nose is pine, resin, grapefruit peel, treacle, floral honey tones....taste is heavy resin, pine, pineapple, toffee/caramel, floral honey tones, finishing with a lingering slightly sweet pine bitterness....mouth feel medium to thick, slightly sticky, alcohol adds light warmth, carbonation creates a thick foamy coating. This is a quite typical American style I/DIPA. Hop heavy with all the aroma and flavor nuances of that backbone, with just enough malt to keep the hops under a bit of control. BJCP 8/3/15/4/7

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.

bigbish (510) - California, USA - AUG 9, 2010
Pours a holden color with a good white head with some staying power. Great aroma. The flavor is fantastic, lots of hops, but not overly hopped like some DIPA. Just enough malt to give you a hint of it without taking away from the star, which is the hops. Good stuff.

hellbilly (3249) - scottsdale über alles, Arizona, USA - MAR 7, 2011
from the cask at papago 7/28/10. clear. worn penny - rich coppery color with a soft airy cask head. it smells like sunshine would!... resinous, orange, grapefruit, wood, flowers and caramel. the palate is a touch sweeter than i would ideally like but it is incredibly hoppy... citrus, dank, wood, toasty grain, caramel and a little ashiness on the finish. the body is a bit too rich and slick for me toward the bottom of the glass but in small doses or with regular carbonation i am sure this is quite good. 8/3/7/3/15/3.6

Oakes (12167) - 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.
