22oz - It hit all the marks for the style. This is not a standout, but this is a tough style.

manuchampions (1243) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 30, 2011
650ml bottle from Bottleworks in Seattle. Pours murky gold with firm off white head. Aroma is grapefruit, tangerine, apricot and piney hops. Taste is robustly bitter with grapefruit, orange peel and loads of pine resin. It gets more and more bitter as it lingers on the palate. Leaves a dry bitter goodness behind for a while. Well made.

nearbeer (4472) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 29, 2011
Draft pint at Anthony’s in Harrisburg. Cloudy golden-orange with a small head. Aromas of grapefruit, resin, caramel and pineapple. Flavor is a nice mix of the same with some spicy floral tones as well. Near-medium body is tingly, well to the dry side, and dangerously chuggable.

VsXsV (3642) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 27, 2011
UPDATED: AUG 7, 2011 65 cl bottle from Ölbutikken. Hazy amber/orange liquid with small, thick, off-white head. Hoppy aroma with lots of citrus and notes of grapefruit, tropical fruit and caramelly malt. Taste is heavily bitter and light sweetness. Nice but not balanced. More malty in the taste. Medium bodied and nice carbonation. Overall, nice DIPA.

bluevegie (3070) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUL 26, 2011
Tried on tap at The Monk. The nose was the best feature, lovely aroma of hops. Fairly murky looking straw body with a decent head. Expecting more bitterness to come through in the taste, grapefruit then orange. Solid IIPA which was a mouthful.

craftycarl21 (2338) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 25, 2011
22 oz bottle. Pours a cloudy orange with a beautiful frothy, rocky white head. Aroma holds notes of ruby red grapefruit, orange zest, pine needle, a touch of pot, freshly mowed grass, and some lemon. Also some beautiful sweet nectar fruit present, notably apricot. Flavor holds more bitter floral and pungent hops than in the nose, but with the return of the citrus presence and great evergreen and grass notes. Palate is very very supple and well rounded. An excellent DIPA.

rosenbergh (9501) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 24, 2011
Draught at the Publick House, Brookline, MA.
Hazy yellow colour with small white head. Strong fruity American hops and lots of bitterness in aroma. Very strong bitter hops, heavy dark bitterness and some mild alcohol in flavour. Mild alcohol burning. Thick. Strong lasting bitterness.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 24, 2011
Shared this bottle at the BrewDog Bar, Edinburgh. A chunky golden colour with a thick white head. Resinous hop aroma of pine and passionfruit with some barley undertones. Oily mouth-feel with flavours of passionfruit, pineapple, mango and pine. Light chewy malt and very bitter, which I like! Superb!
