CamdenD (1161) - Madrid, SPAIN - DEC 23, 2010
Extremely strong (in a good way) IIPA -- well hopped and well-balanced for a West Coast IPA. Very happy to see some malt undertone here as well as the citrus hop profile.

Co-rate! Tap at the brewery. Bright yellow color. Aroma has citrus first, pine second, resin third. Taste is bitter start to finish. Good 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.

mixmasterob (1041) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - FEB 16, 2011
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.

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.

Camons (9404) - Hasselager, DENMARK - MAR 4, 2011
Tap @ Falling Rock. Pours dark golden with a white head. Aroma of pine, grapefruit, orangepeel. Taste is bitter orangepeel, pine, resin, melon, mongo, lots of fruity hops, very nice. Medium body and corbonation, long bitter finish. Very nice hoppy and bitter IIPA, but still very drinkable. 040311

50belair (3253) - Florida, USA - MAR 8, 2011
bottle. Clear dehydrated pee in color. Citrus and floral aromas. Big eucalyptus, resiny, floral hoppy flavors. I don’t like it quite as much as the Hop 15, but it’s still a good DIPA....

unclemattie (4358) - Georgia, USA - MAR 26, 2011
22oz bottle. Cloudy orange/amber color. Aroma of fresh hops, grass and resin. Flavor has a hint of malt, dominated by sharply bitter hops. Pine resin and citrus, its all West Coast. Not very strong for a Double IPA or malt strong either. Loads and loads of grassy hops. Whoo.
My 100th Imperial/Double IPA Rating<\b>

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - JAN 25, 2010
Draft at Toronado SD. Poured a clear medium orange color. The head was fluffy and white with good retention and lacing. Attractive fruity hop aroma with grapefruit, apricot, orange, and subdued pine elements. Pale malt backbone with the slightest touch of caramel. Medium bodied without obvious alcohol warmth or flavor. The moderate to generous hop bitterness kept the delicate sweetness at bay. Pretty good stuff.
