Lightly hazy goldenrod color with a small, white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of floral hops, pine, citrus, tangerine, buttercream, and toasted malts. Taste of citrus fruits, pine, grass, sweeter honey, and a bitter, hoppy finish with light alcohol as well.

Had this on tap, and it was one of the best double IPAs I’ve had yet. Major grapefruit citrus taste. I could barely taste the Mikeller Tomahawk I ordered after this due to the blitz of hops. If you see this one on tap, and you love IPAs, you owe it to yourself to order this!

IndianaRed (2726) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAY 6, 2010
On Tap At Brewforia’s new location opening day. A rather pale hazy golden color with a nice off white head. Lots of bitter citrus aroma. Flavor is a bit papery and a little soapy and perfumish, but lots of hop bitterness. Definately a DIPA bitterness and well attenuated, but only moderate fresh hop flavor. Fairly light pallate and crisp carbonation. Quite bitter and harsh trailer. A decent Double.

michael-pollack (4960) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 6, 2010
Draught at Capone’s: Aroma of hops, pine, evergreen hop oil, slight tropical fruit, grass, pot, and a hint of grapefruit. Poured amber/orange in color with a small, white head that lasted throughout. Hazy. Slightly to lightly sparkling. Flavor is heavily bitter. Tastes of hops, pine, light tropical fruit, grass, resin, and hop oil. Medium body. Tingly, then dry texture. Average to lively carbonation. Bitter. hop, pine, resin, and evergreen finish is dry. 8%ABV is completely hidden. A nice IIPA.

TomDecapolis (4604) - Milton, Delaware, USA - MAY 4, 2010
Tap at Capones. Pours a hazy lighter orange with a smaller creamy white head that laced. Aroma of tropical fruits, pine, other citrusy hop notes and light caramel. Flavor of lots of grapefruit, some pine, loads of hop bitterness. Dominated by hops. Very dry west coast style double IPA.

Tasted on tap at the 10th Bistro Double IPA Festival on 2/6/2010. This Imperial IPA pours a medium orange gold color. Medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is grapefruity and floral. A medium bodied Imperial IPA. The malts are fruity and sweet. The hops are citrusy and grapefruity. Nice orange and citrus flavors. Nice balance. Good carbonation. Medium bitter IPA. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is bitter.

sirpsycho (393) - Murrysville, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 1, 2010
On tap at Brouwers Cafe. Pours a hazy gold, small white head. Aroma is all about citrus notes, peach, pineapple, orange, grapefruit, malt in the background. Flavor profile is more of the same. Nice bitter finish, solid IIPA.

gracefullypunk (667) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 24, 2010
On tap at Collins Pub. Pours honey gold with off-white head. Very much a California IIPA--tonnes of citrus in the nose, but not much else. Some pine in the taste but again, the bitter grapefruit is the primary taste.

Hophead22 (2879) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - APR 23, 2010
From a growler. Rating #70. The color was pretty light, maybe a medium gold with a nice white head. Lots of pine in the aroma a little citrus as well. Very smooth, but with a nice bite too it, more pine and just real nice too drink, real good stuff. (1190)
