People be hating on this beer. I enjoyed it. Hoppy sour and tasted like the wetlands in my backyard, but in a good way. Poured hazy yellow, nice white head.

ElDuderino (183) - Hyde Park, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 23, 2006
First, I am amazed at the low rating. Pours an interesting deep hazy yellow with a strong pure white head. Very piney and sharp smell, glorious. Every sip is up-front, pungant and amazingly hoppy. Maybe a little too much at times, but hop heads will love. Very very dry and bitter, over the top bitter and finishes with that sharp bite. Almost a little sour and yeasty interesting. Complex and yummiferious!

Deep gold in color with a medium white head. Aroma of earthy and spicy hops and sweet caramel malt. Bitter and sweet at the same time, lingering bitter finish with a medium/full body.

Pours a hazy orange with a smallish head. Active carbonation tingles the tongue. The aroma is a bit musky in the hop area, but also has a tingling citrus quality. Lively bitterness backs up a solid malt body. Something keeps it from being really good though. I just canít place it.

hopdog (9018) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 30, 2006
12oz bottle acquired in trade (Iím not sure from who - if you sent this to me, let me know!). Poured a medium amber color with an averaged sized off white head. Aromas of pine, light caramel and lightly fruity. Not too much of a hop presence in the aroma. Tastes of grapefruit and light caramel with a medium alcohol burn. Iíd call this an average IPA but not an IPA.

theshocker (329) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JUL 30, 2006
This beer is uniquely aweful. First off, they put the stats on the beer. OG 1.077, ABV 8.6%. This means the beer had to ferment down to 1.011, which is very thin for such a large beer. Second, 56 IBUs...in a DIPA?!?! A DIPA should be at 90+. The beer makes up for the lack of bitterness with the sourness from a bacterial infection. The beer is very hazy, cloudy orange with a gigantic head, likely from the infection. Iím not spending any more time with this beer. The whole 6-pack were dumpers.

Pours a five finger white head that fades slowly leaving a little lace. Cloudy amber color. Medium carbonation and medium bodied. Malty/piney nose. Starts sweet but with the hops right there but not overwhelming, slight bitter aftertaste. Nice double IPA. $1.75 for a 12oz bottle from Colonial Spirits Acton, Ma.

Shared by goldtwins on 5/01/06: Pours a slightly hazy copper orange with a nicely-lacing, lightly frothy off-white head. Aroma of pine and spruce hops has a touch of earthy malty sweetness. Body starts with good sweet crystal malty character and fresh piney green hoppy presence. Pretty good balance with some warming alcohol toward the finish. A decent double IPA, just nothing special.

Dickinsonbeer (5077) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUL 9, 2006
Split 6-pack with DYCsoccer17 up in Ct. Pours a slightly hazy wieght peachy gold with a white sticky head that eventually fades. Aroma is actually not as hoppy as expected in a big IIPA. Sticky sweet caramel malts, but even those arent that intense, then the light citrus and floral hops come in but are still nothing special. It almost seems like this might have been old and not quite as fresh as it should be, then I see some of the ratings and style percentile and think- yeah maybe its just not that great. Either way- for such a huge 8.6abv IIPA you should have more than 56 IBUís which is what it says it has on the bottle. Flavor is a bit bland and therefore allows the alcohol to come through. Ok overall, and easy enough to drink, but not anywhere close to where it shoudl be for a IIPA.
