Golden pour with a white head. Citrus comes through in the aroma and taste.Nice bitter finish. Leaves the mouth dry.

This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a medium sized head of foamy finely sized bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a hazy dark orange colored body and an excellent lacing. The mild aroma was hoppy. The thick mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a strong hoppy aftertaste. The deep flavor contained notes of hops. A wonderful best in class brew. An excellent example of an I2PA.

Tap at Three Fires. Ice tea malt and orange aroma. Clear light copper with a small off-white head. Caramel malt, sweet orange hops, Medium body, moderate carbonation. Aroma was a bit weak, and hops rather subdued.

Draft at the source. Clear golden color, thick white head, solid lacing. Aroma of wet grass and subtle scallions. Taste is bitter grass and a hint of fruit and licorice. Very nice start to a weekend beer trip!

Suttree (5130) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 11, 2012
This was definitely on the maltier end of DIPAs, very sweet and rich, with a lot of hops. The Bride said that it tasted like Fall, which I kinda get. Smooth, sweet and almost decadent. I liked it...

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - NOV 8, 2012
22oz bottle. Clear amber with a thick, foamy, beige head and some lacing. Aroma of pine, caramel, lemon, herbal tea and toast. Flavor is toasty malt, medium hop bitterness, fruity yeast esters and no alcohol presence. Medium body with soft carbonation. Nice IIPA, seems more on the English style but really good.

Atom (1338) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 1, 2012
Bomber thanks to queenholly, pours a murky copper/orange with small white head. Aroma is yeasty and heavy on toffee malts. Taste has a bite hop spice into caramel and toffee malts with some bitterness and light citrus. An English IPA with almost a barley wine flavor. A bit lacking on hops however.

Bottle:   Orangish straw, hazy, thin to moderate frothy sandy head, spotty lacing.   Citrusy hopped nose, a little bit candied.   Smells inviting.   Soft citrusy hops on the tongue, mildly sweet, a little candied citrus peel.   Surprisingly light for a 10.7% ABV.   Some dank and musty notes.   Not bright, but clean, comes across as a majorly strong English IPA.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Lingering musty candied citrus peel notes.   Enjoyable.   Thanks for the bottle Jeff!
