GIJOE (620) - North Berwick, Maine, USA - DEC 31, 2013
Pours a slightly cloudy amber with a thick frothy white pillow of head. Stays a while. Nose is bright, floral radiance. The complexity that explodes on sipping is a befuddling hoppalicious delight. Medium body. Mild carbonation. Hops. Hops. Hops. Hops! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

arminjewell (6152) - Farmington Hills, Michigan, USA - DEC 17, 2013
Pour on tap at GABF, dark orange pour with white head, aroma is big dank, piney, and floral hops, lots of orange peel in there mixing into some grass, hints of caramel, slight earthy tones. Taste is a mix of earth, floral and herbal hops, big dank, onion notes with a hint of pine, slight biscuit, caramel, finishing bitter, a bit boozy.

ElGaucho (2200) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - AUG 1, 2013
Draft at Mackenzie. Rich aroma akin to a barley wine or American Strong. Hazy dark gold body. Too much rich thickness to leave much lace. Wow flavor. Fairly dry for a 10.4 abv. Very hoppy. Phenomenal.

Bottle pour into a pint glass for this brew. missing just a bit of the mark for the IPA style, especially a big ipa. But still good enough

DuffMan (6645) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 4, 2013
On tap @ Aces & Ales. Slightly hazy orange body, soft pillowy white head. Intense grapefruit hop load, fresh and juicy, sweet underlying malt structure in perfect complement. Intensely bitter, yet so drinkable! Outstanding.

Viper666 (2763) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 24, 2013
Dégustée en fût au Farmhouse Tap & Grill à Burlington, VT. De couleur orangée et claire. Nez de houblon résineux, fruité (agrumes, abricots), légèrement citrique et herbeux, moyen de caramel sucré avec des traces de biscuits. Moyennement ronde en bouche avec un pétillement moyen ainsi qu’une texture moyennement résineuse. Goût amer de houblon fruité (agrumes, moyen d’abricots), légèrement herbeux, résineux et citrique (une amertume présente toute la gorgée) lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute un goût de grains de malt sucrés avec des notes de pain, de caramel sucré et quelques traces de biscuits puis en finale l’amertume de houblon se veut asséchante, plus résineuse et aux notes terreuses en plus d’être accompagné de traces d’alcool. Post-goût long et un peu sec, plutôt amer de houblon résineux, moyennement fruité (zeste d’agrumes) et légèrement herbeux avec des notes résiduelles de malt sucré ainsi que des traces d’alcool. (17 avril 2013)

Draught. Pours a mostly clear amber with a moderate white head on it. Nose is fairly floral with a little bit of citrus in it. Taste is only slightly bitter, and feels very smooth. Very drinkable DIPA.
