Thanks to Alex... we had this a couple months ago from a bad growler so even the hardcore reviewer that I am, didnít review it, the new bottle didnít improve and may have even been worse, this is a horrible beer... pours a murky ugly copper, hardly any carbonation, light watery bubbles... the nose is horrendous, it smells like vomit laced with fresh oranges... the taste isnít as bad, not sure how it could be, but still not very good, very bitter pine and alcohol... feel is flat

On tap at the brewpub on November 6, 2010. Pour brought a nice light amber-brown color with a pretty good head and quite a bit of lacing. The nose was pretty sharp with bitterness but didnít offer many differentiated hops. I got a bit of grapefruit and pine, though it was hard to pull individual elements out. The same situation existed with the taste, where I got a really strong dose of bitter hops without much of any backing malt, I couldnít really place much other than just saying it was "hoppy." Really bitter feel and a dry finish. A pretty good brew, but I preferred the 5 Cís. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 11-14-2010

Pours clear, deep amber into a snifter. White head with little retention recedes to hug rim. Sweet roasted nuts, resin and grapefruit aromas. Slick caramel with deep stanky resins from front to back. Turns to grapefruit in the lasting burn.

Tmoney99 (10820) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 7, 2011
Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured a hazy copper color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with fair lacing. Moderate to heavy complex earthy and resin hop aroma with a small alcohol tone. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet and small alcohol bite finish of moderate to long duration. My expectations where exceeded.

(22oz bomber) clear orange with oily bubbles resting on top. Nose of candied orange, pineapple, mango, very fresh and a bit dank. Taste of bitter citrus, but fairly well balanced, sweet oranges, grapefruit rind oils. Oily body and a good tasting linger.

BarZigKin (511) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - NOV 17, 2010
Bomber with thanks to thirdeye11. Poured a clear, glowing, copper-colored body with a bubbly head leaving nice lacing. Aroma of fresh pine hops, caramel sweetness, floral in the finish---Nice. Flavor of fresh (soft, not bitter or aggressive) piney/resinous hops, melon, bready and a lingering medium bitter finish. Active carbonation with a soft, medium to full mouthfeel. A great DIPA.

mcox90 (1563) - Wilton, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 8, 2010
On tap at the brewpub and growler. Pours a beautiful, rich looking, honey/amber color with a thick, off white head. Lots of sticky lace left behind as the head recedes. Huge citrus aroma, orange and tangerine, with some earthiness and a strong alcohol scent. Thick, creamy palate that coats the mouth. Average to low level of carbonation which is a good thing as the tongue has enough to deal with, what with all that hop thunder. Taste is a combination of sweet citrus flavors tempered with heavy bitterness. Well balanced combination. As in the aroma, alcohol makes itself well known.
