joshwilfong (1200) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - AUG 31, 2011
orange with large white head. nose of oxidized citrus and herbal hops. firm bitterness before touches of low crystal sweetness o perhaps munich malt before solid citrus and herbal hop flavors that are slightly muted with age. the beer shows little alcohol presence and has a relatively dry finish for the abv. overall a pretty traiditional double ipa that at its prime would probably be solid but not spectacular and now is below average

Bottle from Philly Craft. Nice notes of Caramel malt, citrus, some bread. Very good blend of bittering hops that seem to balance out the sweetness in the finish. Very Goood.

eManu (448) - Kuala Lumpur & Brussels, BELGIUM - AUG 16, 2014
From a 50cl bottle, pours a hazy amber with a nice cream off white head, that staid some time. Aroma is very pleasant, hops, honey, candy and yeast. Flavors of hops, red and citrus fruits, grassy and spices, pepper. Grapefruits and hints of berries are present and hints of vanilla. Nice strong bitterness, but not overdone, well balanced. Nice long lasting flavors and bitterness in mouth. Very enjoyable, and highly recommended, would drink again.

Nieco belgijski w charakterze aromat, z solidną dawką owoców tropikalnych i alkoholem w tle. W smaku potężna dawka słodów, owoców tropikalnych ze sporą goryczką na finiszu i grzejącym alkoholem. Piekielnie poprawna Double IPA, ale po prostu pijałem lepsze :)

smith4498 (3009) - Miami, Florida, USA - AUG 9, 2014
Pours dark orange/brownish color with light tan head. Aromas of pine and caramel. Bitter pine resin flavor with lots of maltiness. Medium to full body with moderate carbonation. More malty than I like for a DIPA, but still good.

flip_soeperman (580) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 7, 2014
Really nice resinous yellow creamy bitter ipa. Palate and taste are mostly on the bitter medium side, not much sweetness left in there, but that makes it nice and pronounced

dambor (28) - Berlin, GERMANY - JUL 31, 2014
Pours deep yellow with a medium head, disappearing pretty fast. Aroma: a lot of herbs, with some orange peel and white fruit in the background. Very fresh. Taste: very nice full body with a nice bitterness at the end, lasting not too short and not too long-just perfect. Medium carbonation.The 8.5% ABV is very well hidden. Great IPA.

DuffMan (6641) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 30, 2014
Bottle. Hazy deep gold with a long lasting white crown. Ripe pineapple and grapefruit hop character with accompanying sweet malts make for a very drinkable DIPA. Pleasing bitter finish. Yum.

CapFlu (4493) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 29, 2014
Lasting thin white head atop and cloudy orange body. Nose of orange marmalade, rotten cantiloup and battery acid. Flavour is nicely smooth, hides the alcohol well. Very nice. Purchased from Metro Liquor University Heights.

w_adwersarz (135) - Cracow, POLAND - JUL 27, 2014
Barwa bardzo ładna, taka soczysta pomarańczka, zamglone. Piana niewielka pozostawiająca przyzwoity lacing. Aromaty ziłowo-rodzynkowo-winogronowe, z odrobiną grejpfruta. Półpełne, słodowe, z goryczkową kontrą. Sama goryczka jest powyżej średniej, trochę zalegająca, ziołowa i odrobinkę cytrusowa. Wysycenie średnie, a alkohol tylko trochę wyczuwalny.
