Fresh, resinous, piney hop aroma hits you upfront. Billowing white head on top of a surprisingly fairly clear golden orange body. The tongue is assaulted with a bitter piney hop taste followed by a wave of hot alcohol. Riding on the tail of this is a bit of sweet malt flavor, but it gets wiped out by the hops which now display a grapefruit character. The spray left behind is tongue numbing bitterness and the desire to get back up and ride the next wave. Great West Coast DIPA!

greenhorn1 (850) - Mission Viejo, California, USA - JUL 15, 2011
Bottle. Pours orange with a large frothy head and lively carbonation. Aroma and flavor is similar. Citrus bomb, mainly grapefruit with hints of pine. Nice dry bitter finish. However, I am not sure I would say this is a iipa. Not as bold as I like in my double’s, but still an excellent ipa.

msante79 (2224) - Mount Prospect, Illinois, USA - JUL 15, 2011
Bomber from Binny’s Schaumburg. Pours hazy orange with golden edges with large white head. Aromas of grapefruit, orange, mangos, peaches, some caramel, and fair amounts of hops. Flavors of sweet malts, orange, grapefruit, caramel, and a shit load of bitter hops. I always complain about lack of bitterness in IIPA and IPA’s, but fuck man is this bitter. Some alcohol warmth in there as well. Still solid and enjoyable once palate adjusts.

Sigmund (6645) - Tau, NORWAY - JUL 14, 2011
Shared bottle at local tasting. Golden colour, large white head. Strong aroma of resinous American hops, also hints of orange marmalade. The flavour is distinctly hoppy throughout, with a piney and grapefruity bitterness, but is still not too extreme.

stobbe74 (3789) - DENMARK - JUL 11, 2011
Pours an unclear and orange beer with an orange head. The aroma is malt and hops with peach and grapefruit. The flavor follows the nose. The palate is bitterness. Overall a good beer.

Beardface (1517) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - JUL 11, 2011
Bottle shared by the generous folks at 16 Tons. Slightly hazy orange pour with a big off-white head and plentiful lacing. Absolutely enormous citrus aroma, with oranges, grapefruit and tropical fruits all playing a part. Flavir doesnt quite match the smell, but is big on citrus with just enough caramel malt thrown in for balance. Great beer.

UPDATED: FEB 3, 2016 Bottle from ølbutikken. (2011-11-7) cloudy orange, smooth huge beige head, it rises really fast when pouring and looks fantastic. not 5 bc there are a small amount of floaties in there. supeb strong hoppy, bitter hoppy, pine, grapefruit oldscool US hoppy aroma. Strong hoppy aroma that knocks your nose off for a while. Very hoppy flavor, bitter hoppy, some grapefruit, some pine, some water melon, the sweet malts are not that prominent, but show themselves towards the end. aftertaste is bitter hops.. Very decent straight IIPA with loads of flavor and bitterness. [8,4,8,3,16]. bottle from kihoskh,2016-02-03 cloudy yellow, smooth creamy offwhite head. strong deep hoppy and malty aroma that knocks your nose off for a while.strong full bodied hoppy flavor, bitter us hops, good dry malts to balance, not so sweet,but very full, like they state on the bottle, it seeems a bit more intensely hopped than many of their other ipa’s, and that’s quite a bit already. Great example of uncompromised us style ipa, and delicious. rating is the same as the one i rated 4 yrs ago

22 oz. bottle courtesy of agl108. Pours a bizarre gel-like orange/amber color with a big beige head and TONS of floaties. Lots of pungent resiny pine, grapefruits, juicy tangerines, ripe pineapples, lemons, and citrus rinds in the salivary gland-tingling aroma. Goes down full-bodied with a tongue-stinging crispness. Some light caramel and vanilla upfront taste-wise. Biscuity in the middle with a little rye bread. Oranges, grapefruits, and rinds at the end. Finishes quite dry. Just a bit of alcohol warmth on the backside. Pretty drinkable for a relatively big beer. Excellent!
