On tap at Otto’s on our way to RBSG. Pours a ruby hued orange gold with a medium sized white to beige head. Big citrus and pine, hop candy, and caramel. Huge juicy earthy hops, dripping and pungent. Smooth warming alcohol. Slow soft grapefruit. A little boozy, but very tasty. Big slow grapefruit and quinine on the finish.

This poured a bright medium orange color with an off white head. Aroma was a decent amount of citrusy hops, light fruits, and caramel malts too. Flavor was sweet sticky malt, very bitter hops but not much hop flavor and a strange salty taste too. A bit disappointing.

From bman. Amber, mostly transparent, thin off white frothiness. Nose is burnt sugar forward with a background of spicy hops. Chalky almost powdery hop bitterness dominates this thing...but ill take that over the burnt sugar I was expecting from this east coast iipa. Nice bitterness from the east coast..nice spiciness from them hops as well...nice warming alcohol too

Tampa crew does it again. Copper pour. Whitish head. Resin hops, caramel malt, bready notes. Flavor is sweet and hoppy. Resinous and caramel. Not bad.

12oz bottle. Purchased while travelling. One of my favorite styles of beer though this one didn’t quite stack up to some of the better ones in this category. Still quite tasty though.

A nice, highly hopped double IPA. Appearance/palate thin for a double IPA. Alcohol presence is a bit over-the-top, but it is a double IPA, so what do I expect? There are other IPA competitors out there who can top this for flavor, but if I had it on a deserted island I would not turn away from the Double D (or maybe 2 for balance).

20100515 Sampled at PilsnerPeter’s 2nd Annual Spring Gathering. Shortbread and citrus, pretty sweet stuff, sticky palate, thick. Sweetness a bit much for me even among the many big stouts of the day. Tropical and citrus hops linger. Coating.
