The beer is bright golden with a thick, light tan head. Aromas of pine, sap, alcohol, malt, a touch of spice. Big hoppy flavor amid a robust malt body. Sticky on the palate with warming alcohol heat. Truly, a malt and hops monster, as described. Not my stylistic preference. Ok...

Reviewed from notes. This was poured into a tulip. The appearance was a hazy orange with a nice glossy golden yellow color. The head was about a finger and a half of white foaminess. It died down after about a minute leaving some nice gentle lacing sticking for a little bit and then sliding into the beer. The smell had a vast amount of grapefruit notes up front with a nice allocation of mango, lemon, and light lime to be the bittersweet part and then after a bit of warming, there’s some nice sweet caramel to balance just a bit. The taste was fully bittersweet all around taking in both sides of the bitter to the sweet and making it slightly sticky in the aftertaste and yet leading to a slightly refreshing finish. On the palate, this one sat about a medium on the body with not much of a sessionable aspect to it. The carbonation was good for the DIPA style as it was just harsh enough but still smooth enough all around. Overall, I once put this with an open faced tuna melt with melted pepperjack on top and it was absolutely awesome. Recommend with or without food despite high ABV.

Tall can via trade. drank from can. Can is boring looking with just letters and words, that’s gonna cost a point. Aroma is oranges and lemons with some tropical fruit notes. kinda low for a DIPA. Taste is malty up front and low on the bitterness. Hop flavor is kind of muted. This can is relatively fresh, under a month old and was cold the whole time. no indication of the 10% abv. overall decent, but seems low on the hops.

Pour is transparent ruby red with lots of tight tan head. Nose has a light malt presence up front, a hint of malt sweetness, a light dough. Hops are resinous and faint citrus. Nose is not bright. Taste is sweeter and malts and hops make it resiny and sweet. There is fusel alcohol in the finish and the body is syrupy.

Big can in a tulip. Pours brown/amber with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma of floral and citrusy and piney hops, caramel and pale malts, and dough. Flavor the same with a nice hoppiness, but a lot of malts. Average texture. Not bad at all, but not the best for the style.

Berard (345) - Salem, New Hampshire, USA - APR 29, 2014
Can. Mild hop aroma over nice white head that lingers. Pours Rex with mild carbonation. No complexity over a hop flavor that is cherry sweet. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tall boy, these huge ipas just to be in style. I like it sweet malty boozy with a ridiculous amount of hops

Reynolds314 (2440) - Connecticut, USA - APR 17, 2014
Can courtesy of Airforcehops i think. Pours a copper color with billowing off white head. Aroma is sweet malts, citrus, floral, caramel. Taste is medium sweet and very smooth for the high abv. This is a nice DIPA

Can. Pours amber gold with a big lacy head that lingers and caoats the glass. Aromas are grass, floral and lemony citrus. Sweet caramel malts upfront, a touch buttery. Followed by grassy, citrusy hops that linger through the finish.
