SuIIy (1983) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - FEB 26, 2011
Bottle. Pours a bright orange color with a bright white foamy head that leaves nice lacing. Nose is huge floral, piney, citrus hop notes, dank nugs. Palate stings and leaves the tongue hop blasted, bitterness in the swallow is refreshing and juicy. Flavors of citrus hop notes, fresh grass, juicy mangoes. Total hop bomb.

Pours a cloudy amber with a thick, rocky white head. Orange and grapefruit aroma really jumps out of the glass. The flavor is fairly dry - just a tiny hint of sweetness - but it has a thick, almost creamy mouthfeel and a lingering grapefruit-pith hop bitterness on the finish.

22oz Bottle. Pours copper gold with white head, nicely laced. Nice hop aroma, taste is hop bitter with only a slight sweet at the end. Agree with others it’s a little overly bitter. Still a nice brew.

On draft at Capone’s. Pour is a very cloudy red highlighted orange with two big fingers of foamy beige head; the lacing left was amazing and the foam lasted so long I had a permanent beer mustache while drinking it. Nose is citrus, hops, melon, mango, and a bit of pine. Taste is right on par, with a fruity, mellow hop introduction. This fades a touch, then you are smacked with a hop wallop (very bitter) in the finish. This is a very solid DIPA, which I enjoyed very much, but I would have liked it to finish as mellow as the rest of the experience.

Tap at AZSBF.Pour is orange-gold with a white head. Aroma shows notes of mango, apricot, orange, and some floral hops. Flavor shows the same with additional notes of caramel and pine. Overall body is moderate with well balanced bitterness.

650ml bottle from Bev4less. Pours a slightly cloudy amber-orange color with a big clumpy white head. The aroma is strong with fresh oranges and grapefruit juice. The flavor, like the aroma, is strong with citrus, resins and a bit of caramel. The palate is full and silky smooth with lively carbonation. Finishes long, dry and biter. Overall: I found the bitterness of this just a bit harsh, otherwise a great DIPA.

socaltay (204) - Ventura, California, USA - FEB 23, 2011
Wonderful DIPA. The aroma is all citrus and very prominent hops. The appearance is lighter than I expected, it is a golden color with decent carbonation and white head. The taste is very full of hops and follows the aroma with a citrus taste. It is the first beer that actual seems to have some citrus, mainly grapefruit in it. I enjoyed this beer.

Orange pour. Loads of tropical fruits, hops, citrus, resin, caramel, toffee! Flavor is bitter, sweet, caramel, toffee, hoppy, tropical fruits. WOW!

PapaSkeetSkeet (806) - Corvallis, Oregon, USA - FEB 20, 2011
Deep gold, hazy, on cask at Al’s, coarse white head. Aroma is of floral hops. Flavor is of flora hops, mild caramel/toffee balance, and a rather harsh bitterness that ruins the beer in my opinion.

Bottle big thanks to johnnyJ! Orange pour with a nice pillowy white head and some nice sticky lace. Nose is huge wonderful hops, lemons, fresh orange, orange zest, various bright citrus nose and generous amounts of floral and no detectable malt presence. Taste us full of sweet fruit and some malts and very little bread taste and zero caramel nasties. Plenty of smooth bitter carries through. slightly oily mouthfeel and smooth light carbonation. Very nice.
