Bottle. Pours a dark, cloudy orange with a large, off-white head. Sharply acerbic, with gobloads of piney, resiny hops, barely held in check by copious amounts of caramel malts. On the sticky/syrupy side, and I’d rather it was a bit thinner - but for this type of beast, I suppose that’s necessary. Tasty, for sure.

GT2 (8742) - San Diego County, California, USA - JUL 16, 2010
Bottle from Paradiso Dupont. Okay I got this because Travlr couldn’t shut up about how good it was. So was it good like he said? It poured a full dirty, hazy, reddish amber with a lively, full, two-finger dense yellowish head that had awesome retention and sheets of lace. Aroma is fresh strawberry cheesecake (the first time I have smelled this rather than typical rancid strawberry cheesecake that plagues DIPAs), brown sugar, oatmeal cookie, caramel. Wow- no pine, resin, just rich sweetness. In the taste, spicy alcohol is cut by a blend of rich sweetness and full bitterness on the back of the tongue. Not a hop bomb, no stale hoppiness, no stale DIPA notes. Just lovely, simple, well crafted. A very nice surprise.

11.2oz bottle. Poured a medium amber color with an averaged sized off white head. Aromas of citrus, floral hops, earthy and some fruitiness. Tastes of citrus, the same fruitiness, caramel, and pineapple.

Bottle shared with jcwattsrugger and decaturstevo. Pours amber with white head. Nose is floral hops and citrus. Very full nose. Taste is also full of citrus, orange rind and hops. Great beer!

33cl bottle from K&L Redwood City. Stunning appearance: clear medium amber in color with a large lasting whitish head and great thick lacing. Aroma is very nice: very citrusy, floral, and piney with some tropical fruit notes and a hint of caramel malt. The flavor has a sweet caramel and honey backbone, but is dominated by Amarillo and Simcoe hops that yield flavors of mango, pineapple, grapefruit, herbal notes, and pine. Body is fairly full and the palate is a little syrupy, with average carbonation level. This is one of the better non-US American style DIPAs I’ve had. Solid stuff.

Travlr (13428) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUL 10, 2010
33 cl bottle (2 weeks after bottling) at Pizzeria Paradiso. Clear brown, thick off white head. Aroma of HOPS!!! Taste of HOPS!!! and citrus. Freshest hops aroma and taste I have seen since the Poperinge hops festival in 2008. If I could give the aroma a 20 I would.

crackedmachine (473) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 9, 2010
On tap. Poured orange-gold and transparent. Well-suited to my hop-loving tastes: dense and full-flavored but not cloying, crisp and hoppy for the ABV, bitter but not one-dimensionally so and plenty of citrus flavor. Excellent.

Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - JUL 8, 2010
11.2oz bottle. Pours a hazy, deep burnt orange colored body with a dense and creamy, finger-width, beige head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is filled with fresh, dank, citrusy and tropical fruits. Some sweet pines and grass with a nice, herbal spice. Pleasant caramel backing with some crystal malt sweetness. Flavor is similar. Bitter and peppery with some tropical fruits and sweet citrus. Light caramel backing with some grainy sweetness and crystals. Finishes very dry with a higher bitterness. Grassy and piney with some pepper and a touch of florals. Just enough malt sweetness to balance. Leaves a lengthy aftertaste following a medium body and soft, moderate level of carabonation. Overall, a very nice DIPA. Bitter, peppery, grassy, fruity, and enough sweetness to balance. Quite enjoyable.

DocLock (8054) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 7, 2010
Bottle from State Line. Pours turbid orange w 3f ow head. Nose is tropical fruit, pineapple, orange, hopcitrus, caramel malt. Tastes very caramel malty, citric, hoppy, peppery, with hefty pineapple, tangerine, and a great dripping sticky fresh hop overtone and a luscious flavor. Just outstanding! Get ya some, and don’t tarry, punks.

I had this on tap at St. James Infirmary in Reno, NV. 13 ounce pour for $7. The aroma on this is really nice. Plenty of citrus, piney, and hempy hops. Simcoe notes present. There is also a real nice sweetness present here. Really really nice and totally quaffable! Mildly hazy copper-golden body with nice bubbly off-yellow head. Good head retention and fantastic lacing. Citrus grapefruit hop flavors come through early. Some nice sweet, grainy maltiness creates a really nice backbone for the hops. Finishes with more hop bombardment with piney, grapefruity, hempy flavors. This is really fucking good. I wish I could have had more. Ethanol is non-existent.
