DMLINAZ (332) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - JAN 19, 2013
Given the name and style, it’s not surprising that this is terrifically hoppy. From a 22 ounce bottle into a frosted glass (then later into a snifter), pours cloudy orange with a strong white head. Flavor is strong on the front of the mouth, with grapefruit citrus hops and a hint of pine, then a strong, dry finish.

adnielsen (10360) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 19, 2016
On tap @ the brewpub during RateBeer weekend. Golden orange appearance with a nice sized white head. Tropical fruit, pineapple, some dank notes in the aroma. Quite malty, goopy, and highly sweet. Moderately high bitterness. Twang, resin, candy, orange citrus, pineapple, pine, and a hint of butter in the mouth. Ok.

stevoj (3531) - Boise, Idaho, USA - DEC 21, 2015
Bottle from the Co-op. Orange copper pour with one finger fluffy head. Big bold hop aroma, taste continues with more hops, assaulting the palate with some real dank bitterness. Bitter finish slides down the throat with some heat. A big, chewy, meaty DIPA. Nice!
