ElBorracho (472) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 23, 2007
On tap at the brewpub. Pours orange with a frothy white head. Grapefruit, pine and a dash of caramel sweetness all blend nicely into one very fine IPA.

phaleslu (6517) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 25, 2014
Draft at Piece, served in a tulip. Pours a mostly clear golden color with a bit of an orangish hue and a small off-white head that leaves a film, ring, and some trailing lace streaks. Notes of grapefruit, melon, mango, pineapple, pine, caramel, nectarine, and resin. Nice and juicy. Medium-bodied, with a juicy mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Borderline 7/8 on aroma and taste, so I bumped the overall. Very good DIPA.

markducommun (209) - Wilmette, Illinois, USA - JUL 19, 2014
Clear golden, small white head. Melon, honey, very sweet. Sweet upfront with a latent bite that comes from a combination of resinous bitterness and alcohol. Moderately long finish, pretty thick body. Interesting, not incredibly well balanced. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Lubiere (9999) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 21, 2013
An orange amber DIPA with a thin off white head. In aroma, loads of piney floral hops, grapefruit pulp and biscuit malt. In mouth, sweet fruity biscuit malt with loads of mandarines, floral resinous hops, light grapefruit, well balanced and pleasing. On tap at brewery.

rxeight (1319) - Illinois, USA - OCT 27, 2013
Draft, tulip glass, at source. Bright copper orange color. Aroma is a full of grapefruit hoppyness. Taste has lots of hops with a higher than average hopppy bitterness. Body is light for 9.5% and does not have the typical oilyness you might expect from this much hops and abv. Very good stuff, obviously having it fresh really helps that though.

merc7186 (2114) - North Tonawanda, New York, USA - OCT 3, 2013
For the record, this beer gets better as it gets warmer. The appearance is okay with a orangish color, mild haziness and a mild white head, little lacing. The smell comes off with a great piney smell and a back door citrus bitterness. The taste is great with a reallt good hoppy, piney flavor that fades away into a miod bitterness. The mouthfeel is decent with a mild lingering bitterness but it comes off clean too. Overall, you wouldn’t know this was a 9.5 ABV beer because you don’t get alcohol, you get IPA, good beer.
