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.

On draught @ Taco Mac Crabapple. Clear golden pour with a thick fluffy white head. Lace galore. Aroma was fresh citrus fruits, light caramel malt, piney. Flavors were big and citrusy, bitter orange peel throughout, this went well with the bruising bitter finish. Mouthfeel was silky smooth and full, dry as a bone. Tasty stuff, West coast in all regards. Fruity a big time mega bitter. Left a big hop presence long after the glass was gone.

skmikeg (1718) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 15, 2011
Pours a dark orange with a nice foamy white head which fades to nice lacing. aroma is of citrus, pine, tropical fruits, baked bread, and some carmel. flavor is hoppy with alot of pine resin, citrus, some tropical fruits, bread, and carmel malt. Has medium body, a slightly oily mouthfeel and a bitter dry finnish. Overall, a very tasty and drinkable DIPA.

HopMasterFlex (108) - Carlsbad, California, USA - FEB 15, 2011
Pours a hazy orange with a two finger head, decent retention and lacing. Smells of bread, citrus, and pine. Taste has a clean balance of malt and pine & citrus hops with a slightly dry and bitter hop finish. Nice little DIPA.

deyholla (9993) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 14, 2011
On tap. Poured a clear orangish gold with a white head that lasted throughout the beer. Aroma was full of pine with a relatively strong resin note and a bit of grapefruit and sweet grains as well. Flavor began with grapefruit but quickly became full of pine with a hint of resin and the slightest sweet bread backbone.

Tap at the brickstore. Pours a dark orange color with a nice white head. Incredible hop profile like only a west coast IPA can do. Aroma is mostly pine and a little lemony citrus. Flavor is nicely bitter throughout with a grapefruit bite quickly followed by a long resiny pine touch and a long finish. Caramel malt sweetness to add a little balance and give the beer some body. With the balance and hop profile here, this is a great representation of this style.

Sparky (2244) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - FEB 6, 2011
On tap at Lost Abbey Barrel Night 2010. Pours medium amber with a 2 finer white head. The nose is fresh citrus and caramel. The taste is ripe pink grapefruit, oranges and a nice resin bite that lingers quite awhile. Medium mouthfeel. Great DIPA.

Cask (gravity) @ GBBF 2010, Great British Beer Festival, Earls Court Exhibition Centre, London, England.

Clear medium yellow orange color with a average, fizzy to frothy, fair lacing, mostly lasting, off-white head. Aroma is moderate to heavy malty, caramel, heavy hoppy, dark orange - citrus, mango. Flavor is light heavy sweet and bitter with a long duration, soft, dry. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. [20100805]

Poured into a stem at Trappeze in Athens, GA, this was a pale orange color, more like an ipa than a dipa. This hinted at the hop-forward, light malt nature of this dipa, especially when compared with the hop-15 offering from the same brewer. In other words, lemon and pineapple dominated the aroma, with bitterness throughout the flavor and into a long, lingering finish. Overall, a tasty drink but not my favorite for the style or from the brewer.
