McTapps (3959) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - APR 5, 2014
Bottle from trade with Meilby - many thanks to you, Kenni! The beer pours out of the bottle in a cloudy golden colour with steady airy head and crisp body. Wonderful aroma of fresh hops and citrus. Taste of aromatic hops, thyme, spruce, citrus, light malt and cookies. Dry-bitter finish. Highly enjoyable.

MunBro (337) - St. Albert, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 21, 2014
Fairly citrusy aroma, drinking from the bottle. Taste is a little off for a ’double’ IPA - not a gigantic hoppy bite like I expect but most of the bitterness and dryness. Would have loved some more citrus notes, but all in all a very respectable brew nonetheless.

VTHopHead (1511) - Barre, Vermont, USA - MAR 15, 2014
500ml bottle - Pours a murky darkish amber in color with a small white head that produced some small lacing on the glass and some yeasty "floaties" that settled quickly to the bottom of the glass. Aroma is of spicy hops with hints of grass. Flavor is somewhat muted for the style and for my liking... West Coast style DIPA, for sure, but needed more hops! Medium bitter finish. Really just OK...

Very well balanced double IPA! Hides alcohol well, quite easy to drink, still complex and really enjoyable.
