superspak (3417) - Michigan, USA - JUL 19, 2015
12 ounce bottle into tulip glass, no bottle dating. Pours lightly hazy/cloudy golden orange color with a 2 finger dense and rocky off white head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice dense soapy lacing clings around the glass. Aromas of big pineapple, peach, mango, melon, grapefruit, tangerine, lemon zest, orange peel, light pine, honey, light caramel, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great complexity and balance of juicy citrus/tropical hops and moderate malt sweetness; with great strength. Taste of big pineapple, peach, mango, melon, grapefruit, tangerine, lemon zest, orange peel, light pine, honey, light caramel, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Fair amount of pine/grassy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of pineapple, peach, mango, melon, grapefruit, tangerine, lemon/orange peel, light pine, honey, light caramel, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness for a while. Damn nice complexity, robustness, and balance of juicy citrus/tropical hops and moderate malt sweetness; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a very smooth and moderately creamy/sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is an excellent east coast DIPA style. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of juicy citrus/tropical hops and moderate malt sweetness; and very smooth and easy to drink for the ABV. A very enjoyable offering.

cheap (4573) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 12, 2015
My bottle label is quite different. $3 at vintage. Nice viscous pour with a slight haze and rocky head. Smell is straight up ipa flora with no BO. First taste is heavy ipa all the way. Mouth coating rude nasty hoppy preservative medicinal bite that overwhelms the whole experience. What else can be said except that its terribly on style. Not impressed but if you like this style, seek it out.

Dogbrick (9460) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 23, 2015
Sample at The Ohio Taproom. The beer is a slightly cloudy copper-orange color with a medium off-white head that recedes gradually to an outer ring. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus, hops and malt. Medium-bodied with flavors of grapefruit, earthy hops and toasted malt. The finish is moderately bitter with a fruity hops aftertaste. Above average overall.

kassner (1436) - Wexford, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 4, 2015
Very nice IPA. A lot of backbone and a full mouth. looks good with an amber gold body and nice fluffy head. Plenty in this especially if you like a little more malt.

schlitzfaced (78) - Ohio, USA - APR 12, 2015
Bottle poured into glass. Pours a hazy light orange with a thick head that dissipates into a thin white head and nice lacing. Aroma is a nice citrus and big time hops. Taste is slick. This is one of the better Double IPA’s I’ve had, Great to drink.

JaBier (5485) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - APR 11, 2015
Bottle sample at the Maumee Bay tasting at Blacklick Wine & Spirits on 4/2/15. Clear amber in color with a thick beige head. Aroma of piney and spicy hops with some malt. Malty flavor giving way to spicy hops before a piney hop finish.

Gription79 (2616) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - MAR 25, 2015
Poured from a 12 ounce bottle, thanks to jsquire. Pours a golden orange with a bright white head. The aroma is musty hops, fruity, minimal malt. The flavor is juicy hops, fruity, bready maltiness in the finish. The hops are restrained for a DIPA, but not a bad beer.

drowland (6854) - Georgia, USA - MAR 25, 2015
3/24/15. 12oz bottle thanks to tubafatness! Orange pour with a small khaki head, mild lacing. Old hop aroma, caramel, chalky, malty. Blegh. Slightly better flavor, overly bitter, aspirin, caramel, doughy malts, chalky. Not my favorite. Possibly old.

mambossa (93) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - FEB 24, 2015
Pours amber, fine yeast particles, great head retention. Candy citrus nose with floral laced in nicely. Taste is incredible; deep honey roundness that compliments the flowery fullness, moderately sticky citrus for the high-end of it. Wow!
