Ibrew2or3 (6523) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - SEP 28, 2009
Courtesy of kiefdog. Pours clear copper with thin off white head. The aroma has pine and resiny hops to go along with some spicy hops and slick sweet maltiness. The taste is much the same with thick hoppiness I love to sink my teeth into going from pine, resiny sap and grassiness to spicy hops that all run straight into smooth slick malt sweetened hop flavor. Wow, solid IIPA.

bhensonb (10354) - Woodland, California, USA - JAN 19, 2010
Bomber from Archer Liquors. Pours amber copper with a foamy off-white head. Lots of resin aroma hop. Medium plus body with mild carbonation. Flavor is lots of (mostly resin?) hop over caramel. But the effect is tremendous. Finishes well balanced. Quite tasty.

Juancho (239) - Clearwater Beach, Georgia, USA - MAY 28, 2010
Draught at Churchkey. Pours hazy, deep copper toned, aromas of citrus and resin hit you and draw you in. Wonderful floral, citrus, grapefruit juice, malt backbone, very deftly balances the heavy hops. Hides the alcohol very well, could easily drink several of these tooo quickly ! Enjoy.

From a 220z bottle from Pick’s Liquors poured into a snifter. Dark frothy white head that leaves very nice lacing. The beer is dark rusty orange in color. The aroma is floral and grassy hops and sweet malt. Taste is extremely bitter. Medium bodied and thick textured, it has average carbonation and a long bitter finish. Overall, this beer is awesome. At 7 bucks a bottle, I’ll definitely be buying it again!

BeerandBlues2 (9094) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - MAY 29, 2011
Bottle, vintage 2010. Pours clear mahogany with a large, frothy off-white head, long retention with excellent lacing. Aroma is heavy malt (cookie, toast, caramel, biscuit), heavy hops (citrus, pine, earthy, floral), and average esters (apple/pear) with notes of apricot and alcohol. Flavor is moderate malt with heavy hop flavor and moderate bitterness, somewhat sweet with biting alcohol spiciness. Full body, medium warmth and carbonation with a sweet texture and dry finish.

Palidor19 (2881) - Brandon, Florida, USA - JUL 19, 2011
This beer is strong but not overbearing. Has a nice balance of malt and piny hops. The beer fizzes nicely. One of the better DIPA

zizzybalubba (1317) - Elizabeth City, North Carolina, USA - JAN 5, 2012
12 oz. bottle from Total Wine in Chesapeake, VA. Expected dark orange pour with a frothy off-white head. Aroma of grapefruit rind, pineapple, and light pine and grass. Assertive hop bitterness with more pine than the aroma leads you to believe but with a nice balance of flavors that does not overwhelm the palate. From what I recall of Mad Hatter this is the better beer. A well done DIPA.
