Draft at source. Pale golden pour. Heavy aroma of pine, garlic, onion, and to a lesser extent some mango/fruit. Some sweet, biscuity malt. Full flavor that follows suit with initial malt sweetness that gives way to pungent pine/onion/garlic. Full, juicy, and flavorful. Reminds me a bit of Founders Double Trouble. Excellent, excellent brew.

8/18/12 notes: Draft, brewery. A risky but ultimately successful take on this over-the-top Triple IPA. A smack of fresh hops greets with notes of lemongrass herb, cut grass, citrus pith. Body is full, chewy, with a surprisingly nimble finish for all that weight. Flavor is waves of fresh hops (Chinook blend, perhaps?), supported by boozy warmth. Really solid for a style that always flirts with the overwhelming, and calls to memory similar heavyweights such as Hopsickle and White Knuckle.

Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - JUL 15, 2012
On tap at the brewery in Denver, CO. Pours a cloudy orange colored body with a finger-width, creamy, white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is big dank grapefruit pines with some tropical fruit florals, esters, and a sweeter caramel malt backing. Flavor is big caramel sweet malts with some breadiness and plenty of dank grapefruit pines. Lots of tropical florals with some lemon in the middle before some resins come in and this finishes pretty dry and bitter, but quite sweet with lots of caramel and fruit. Light alcohol warmth in a lengthy aftertaste. Medium body that drinks really easily with a soft, moderate carbonation. Overall, a huge, dank grapefruit and tropical floral DIPA with a big caramel sweetness to offset the bitterness. Really easy drinking for such a big beer despite the big fruity sweetness. Nice beer.

UPDATED: JAN 18, 2013 Poured a hazy, golden orange with a one-finger, fluffy white head an great lacing. Smell is huge pine, grass, resin, and weed. Just smells super dank. Taste is super piney, grassy, and dank; big notes of resin, grapefruit, and biscuit with a huge bitter finish and light alcoholic burn. Not too bad though as this beer is thoroughly enjoyable for 11%+ ABV. Stick mouthfeel with high carbonation. Literally tastes like weed in a liquid form; damn tasty DIPA.

My favorite from a full flight at the brewery. Lots of resin on the nose, not a lot of floral or citrus. Very well balanced and dangerously drinkable at 11.2%. Full bodied with solid malt to pull the hops off.

adnielsen (9285) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - FEB 11, 2012
Tap @ brewery. A touch hazy, orange appearance with a white head. Aroma is completely full of resiny, piney hops and a rich pale maltiness with a light ganja smell. Somewhat resiny, highly piney, moderately citrusy, very thick hoppy flavor with some slightly toasted malts. Itís a hop bomb but I thoroughly enjoyed it.

onceblind (4329) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 28, 2012
Clear light amber with a decent foamy off white head. Smells like grapefruit and lemon with a tinge of pine and roasty caramel. Taste is quite bitter but has amazing balance. Thereís loads of cirtric rind, bitter floralness, some pine and herbal hops, but it all backed iup with a ton of maltiness, kinda sweet toffee with a dash of honey. Itís pretty bitter, but not imbalanced. But it kinda has a chewy soggy pale malt aftertaste Iím not terribly fond of.

Ratman197 (9961) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - JAN 23, 2012
On tap at Renegade poured a clear orange amber with a small lingering amber head. Aromas of biscuit, earthiness, skunk bud, pine and light tropical fruiut. Palate was medium bodied and smooth with a dry finish. Flavors of biscuit, earthiness, skunk bud, citrus and pine with a smooth dry lingering bitter earthy finish.

Pour on tap at the brewery, pour was hazy orange with white head. Aroma has notes of big pine and citrus notes, touch of caramel and biscuit with some nice fruity notes, a touch of retronasal burn but really not bad for 11%. Taste is a big fruity and grassy hop front, touch of biscuit, caramel notes with a big bitter finish, slightly from alcohol and more from the hops.
