On tap @ Beer Camp - Chicago. Pour is hazy orange with a small white head. Aroma and flavor of light caramel, lemon zest, orange citrus, and pepper. Good.

Pours amber orage, clear with good head retention. Strong smell of the simcoe hops and heavy malt base. Taste is balanced, light bitterness on the palate with a decent alcohol burn. A good single hop example double IPA.

22 oz bottle purchased from Binney’s. Thanks Ashley! Pours a dark orange nearing red with lasting wispy white head. Aroma is diacetyl hops, wish this was fresher. Flavor is piney hop bitterness with a touch of tropical fruit, pineapple, papaya. Medium bodied, silky mouthfeel with full carbonation, diacetyl fruity finish.

Huhzubendah (2660) - Washington DC, USA - SEP 8, 2014
Bottle shared by RussianDragon. Many thanks. The beer is orange / russet and fairly hazy with a half inch of off-white head. Aromas of citrus, alcohol, bready malts, pine. These massively hopped, high alcohol beers just get on my nerves. Aggressive alcohol heat / sharpness in the finish. Lacking subtlety and grace. An in your face onslaught of hops and malt. Not entirely bad, but not my preference for the style. There are many DIPAs in the 8-10% abv range that reign far superior. This concludes my rant. Put a freaking date on the bottle. Seriously.

kkleu357 (362) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 4, 2014
Deep amber color with a big white fluffy head. Earthy hoppy aroma. Very earthy slight pine taste. Slightly sweet. Heavy mouthfeel. Lots of alcohol taste. It’s ok.

Steasy66 (995) - Minnesota, USA - AUG 29, 2014
Hazy tan, no head. Big and fruity nose a bit herbal. Super sweet, not much hop flavor. Not the best.

Damico (2684) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 23, 2014
Pours cloudy amber thick and unclear with a white head. Aroma and flavor bring huge sweet skunky and piney weed notes that longer with a maltiness as opposed to dry bitterness. The hops are still dominant and delicious.

tectactoe (2330) - Michigan, USA - AUG 20, 2014
Bottle: Thanks, Jeff. Dense, slightly murky copper & deep amber with a soapy off-white head that fades quickly to a ring. Small lacing. Aroma of some sticky pine needles, hop oil, heavy candied pineapple, citrus rind, grapefruit zest, a little bit of crystal malt sweetness, & a nice dose of dirty dankness near the back-end. Taste has a nice, brash bitter strike of Simcoe hops. Mild perfume, dank pine, hop oil, candied & white pepper covered grapefruit rind, sugar cookie, a touch of crystal malt, & a little bit of sticky dextrose sweetness & resin in the aftertaste. Lightly sticky mouth coating. A heavier DIPA, for sure, but a pretty good one nonetheless.

Thick, dark orange. Smell is subdued -- tropical fruits, a little caramel. Taste is bitter with big grapefruit and orange notes. Juicy, good body. Nice.

Bomber poured golden with a white head. Fresh hops, tropical fruits, with a hint of citrus. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
