mambossa (118) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - AUG 26, 2015
From bottle, pours a hazy thick orange with pale yellow on the edges. A head so beautiful and compact you canít help but lick your lips. Retention is quite strong too! Aroma is, you guessed it, huge huge ripe tropical fruit, sharp and sweet floral/foliage. Taste is as, if not more, juicy, undertones of pine, a creamy low-carb mouthfeel with a super delicate linger for an imperial. This one is a real classic!

shrubber85 (9135) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - AUG 25, 2015
Bottle. Orange malt and grapefruit peel/pine aroma. Murky yellow-brown with small head. Sweet orange-peach malt and moderately bitter grapefruit peel/pine flavor. Great balance. Excellent.

Christpuncher (2083) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 22, 2015
Malty and citruscy. Slightly sweet finish with some malt notes. Pours cloudy copper in color. I really prefer the mosaic version of this ipa. Thick Lacey cream head. Had out of a bottle at home.

ryecatcher (1030) - Bridgeport, Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 19, 2015
Bottle. Hazy golden pour, ridiculous foamy white head with enough retention to qualify for frosting on a cake. Nose is grainy peaches and orange peel. Yeah, hoppy but a lot of malt in there too. Mouth is full and sticky, relatively sweet with a bunch of oranges, peaches, grapefruit, biscuity malt, hay. Decent.

Patrickctenchi (4975) - Coxís Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - AUG 19, 2015
Bottle: (best by 8-10-16) Pours very cloudy, yellow-orange with a thin white head. Citrus aroma....orange, tangerine, lemon. Taste is bready, sticky citrus/orange malt...... Strong across the board...caramel malt, citrus-peel. Heavy, bitter and sweet. Very good.

solidfunk (5472) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - AUG 18, 2015
Wonderfully done, and just the kind of DIPA I like. Lots of fruitiness here, tangerine, plum and apple. A hint of pine. Some florals. Orange hazy pour with great head and lacing. Great stuff. Light bittersweet finish. Great package. On tap at Maxís.

umich03jm (2851) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - AUG 14, 2015
Bottle. Aroma is super dank with strong malt too. Candied pineapple, caramel, toffee, wet grass, melon, and light flowers. Tastes moderately sweet but works well with the dankness. Loads of tropical fruit and wet grass, big caramel and sticky toffee malt too. Medium to full body. Really good even though itís sweeter than I like my DIPAs.

londonfields (21) - Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 8, 2015
Thick and syrupy IIPA, slightly cloudy with good oat/malt body. Loads of floral citrusy aroma and flavour. Bitterness isnít out of control, overall just flavour turned up to 10. Great.

yngwie (15566) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 7, 2015
Bottle. An unclear, orange colored beer with a dense, off-white head. Oranges, some peaches and a sugary fruityness in the aroma, not much malts. Itís full-bodied, smooth and with a nice bitterness. A bit sweet I think. Oranges, peaches and a generic tropical fruit flavor. Lasting finish. Rather one dimensional this one, but far from bad. 150807
