JoeMcPhee (8837) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 19, 2009
Hazy amber-gold with a thin white head. The nose is quite piny and resiny. Lots of orange and citrus with a little bit of sweet pale malt, although it successfully avoids the booziness and stickiness of many DIPAs. A nice lingering pine and a lot of other fruity flavours. Fresh and pretty tasty.

sunevdj (3448) - Copenhagen OE, DENMARK - AUG 26, 2009
On tap at piece. Pours a clearish amber with almost no head. Smells of hops and a hint of alcohol. Strong hoppy aromas. Fruity and citric – pineapple. Soft carbonation. Full bodied. Some alcohol notes in the finish.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - AUG 24, 2009
GTMW 2009. Poured a clear medium orange color with a creamy white head. Pleasant citrus, apricot, and caramel aromas. Medium bodied and slightly sweet with the flavors following what I detected in the nose. Mild hop bitterness. Very nice beer.

BlackDonald (1126) - Gulf Shores, Alabama, USA - AUG 9, 2009
This was by far far the best beer they had to offer. This one definitely gets you where you want to be. Dark orange with golden highlights and a thick creamy head, leaving behind some nice sticky lacing afterwards. Strong fruity aroma, complimenting all the citrus bitterness, with a sappy pine tree component that follows every sip. Full bodied and extremely enjoyable, I would drink this pint after pint.

TheAlum (6193) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - AUG 8, 2009
Sampled at GTMW 2009 (Madison, WI). Pours a dark golden clear pour, creamy white that sticks around small, laces ok. Aromas are tropical fruits up front, caramel and pale malts with good hoppy bitterness, decent body, aromas. Flavor brings the bitterness with faint pine and florals showing up on the finish. Flavor is full and enjoyable, leaving pleasant bitterness as well as pretty good balance.

BeerBunker (863) - Burbank, Illinois, USA - JUL 23, 2009
On tap at Piece. Pours amber with a white head. Aroma is of floral hops, citrus, pine, and caramel. Taste is of resiny floral hops. Nice big hop presence in this beer. There is also lots of pine and citrus. Backbone of caramel malt evens the beer out nicely. Very big alcohol burn is present. Each sip finishes with lots of pine and hops. Mouthfeel was sticky, but strangely soapy. Aside from that, it was a very good and easy drinking beer, despite the high alcohol content.

From the Jug at the GABF, Colorado Convention Center 13/10/2007 Strong hop aroma. Golden coloured and very hoppy with a fruity grapefruit flavour. Crisp and bitter finish.

illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 22, 2009
Great name! LOL. Draft at brewpub. Pours amber with a n off white head an webby lacing. Aroma of caramel, sugary malts, fruity esters, and floral hops. Medium bodied with a very slight stickiness to the texture. Flavor of toffee countered by an assertive piney and grapefruit bitterness. This has a nice bite to it, and sort of reminds me of Pliny, but after 24 hours in the growler. Good stuff
