Dry pine in the aroma, the appearance is orange-gold. The flavor is heavy on the grapefruit and very dry. Although there is a bit of syrup thickness to this, it isn’t as much as other DIPAs. Although it has a couple of elements closer to a regular IPA, this is very solid none the less.

Very tasty DIPA. The malt backbone is strong and washes the palate as the bitterness, certainly 100 IBU, strikes the palate. Mild citrus, piney. Full mouthfeel.Unfiltered light orange with lots of head.Thanks Michael P.

6/1/11. 500mL bottle courtesy scotchzi. Hazy orange pour with a thick, frothy white head. Overwhelming catty, piney hop aroma with some citrus. Surprisingly subtle flavor with nice pale malt, huge bitter hops, and lingering citrus. Finishes extremely dry, my tongue feels like sandpaper.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Orangey-Golden pour with medium off-white head.
Nose is citrus and resin hops, very fresh smelling.
Resiny Hops and Toasted Malts. Very bitter and nice! a little oily finisher
but quite complex and good to drink.

This is a great IPA. There is a great aroma and the intensity of the hops is great with a combined sweetness. Much tastier than a regular ipa. Good selection.

(bottle) A great and generous pick from Keg_Juggler. Wow, this is a treat! So smooth for a 100 IBU. Cloudy amber color with resiliant white head. Distinctive balance with hoppy flavor No trace of alcohol. The pinnacle of this style.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
It’s hazy, warm golden with a creamy head, and a fruity and very delicious aroma. The flavour is moderately sweet and has a nice, dry bitterness and notes of caramel, loads of fruits like papaya, peach and pineapple, citrus and spruce. The finish is dry and bitter. It’s a very well-balanced and harmonic beer.
