Daytonbeer (654) - Ohio, USA - MAY 21, 2014

GT2 (8684) - San Diego County, California, USA - JAN 30, 2014
> An old school masterpiece of West Coast DIPA that is better than Pliny the Younger

[ Tap ][ Pizza Port SC ][ 16oz ][ Pint ][ $8 ][ 1/30/14 ]
>> Clear orange amber pour, excellent rocky yellow foam. Robust mango and blood orange explosion up front in the taste with a soft and juicy body- no harsh bitterness. Fresh, powerful red grapefruit aroma with freshly cut rind spray. Juicy mango and pomelo taste with blood orange robust bitter finish. Not chalky or sticky. Really this is all you can ask for with the classic West Coast hop bomb with caramel density to balance. Palate is perfect- hop power, juicy, assertively bitter but not chalky, tannic, paper, nutty, astringent, dusty. Not even sticky or sugary. Dense body though, filling with expected caramel balance. Apart from the buoyant, quenching DIPAs from Tired Hands and Hill Farmstead, this is about as good as it gets from the old school of caramel, clear DIPAs. Made with Columbus, Centennial, and Amarillo for those interested. Wow wow. If you are flying out for PtY, lulz.
\!/: Make more of this and don’t stop

MadRobin (2031) - Silver Spring, USA - FEB 21, 2013
On tap 4 oz. sampler at Pizza Port in San Clemente, CA. Clear, amber-copper with white head and excellent lacing. Aroma of pine, grapefruit and caramel. Taste of pine, caramel and grapefruit. Medium/full body and medium carbonation. A very nice example of a straightforward double IPA. Nothing complex. Just clean hops and malt in a nice balance. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

AmEricanbrew (5901) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - AUG 16, 2012
Clear golden color with white head. Pine sap, grainy pale malt aromas. medium body. Rich, dry cracker malt flavors with some pine, grapefruit hoppy bitterness--mostly bitter

MikeLuke23 (82) - Tampa, Florida, USA - MAY 22, 2012
Sweet maple & caramel aroma, very malty aroma. Hop flavor and aroma is overpowered by the deep malt character. Head retention, body, mouthfeel and color are great for this DIPA style but overall not a great DIPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

douglas88 (6249) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 18, 2011
On tap at GABF 2011. Pours a mostly clear amber color with a medium white head. The aroma is rich pine and fruity notes. The flavor is very good; bitter, very strong, pine, some lighter tropical fruit. Very smooth. Nice.

arminjewell (6322) - lansing, Michigan, USA - OCT 17, 2011
Pour was hazy orange with stark white head, aroma brought notes of big sticky grapefruit, orange, lemon, some pine and grass as well, touch of biscuit but not much. Taste was mouth blasting hops with lots of pine, grass, grapefruit and orange peel, some slight caramel finishing with another wave of pine and bitterness.

presario (4695) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 7, 2011
Tap. Dark yellow, not even gold. Strong carbonation maintains a strong soft white foam and lace. Strong hop nose with melon and nectarine/tangerine notes. Flavor is soapy, city’s and very woody. Body is very light and airy but still touches all parts of the palate.

brokensail (11300) - Orange County, California, USA - SEP 25, 2011
A: The beer pours amber in color with a fluffy white head and some sticky lacing. S: A touch on the sweet side, but a lot of nice fruit notes. Big pineapple, grapefruit, and tangerine. Intense pine aromas on toward the back end. The rest of the scent is comprised of caramel malts. T: More of the same on the palate. Big time fruitiness with lots of grapefruit and tangerine, though the pineapple presence is not quite as pronounced. Sweet caramel malt on the middle with plenty of pine. M: Medium to full in body with a medium carbonation. O: A very well done double IPA. I always enjoy this one.
