660ml bottle served in a pint glass. A: Pours a dark orange to amber color. Slightly hazy. Forms a big, fluffy and creamy light yellow color forming a lot of soapy and lingering lacings in the glass S: Sweet, fruity and quite flowery in the nose. Strong notes of sweet pale malts, crystal malts, roasted malts, grapefruit, pine, flowery hops and sweet bread. Classic US-05 yeast profile in the end T: Slightly sweet upfront. Notes of caramel and crystal malts. Quite fruity too with strong notes of orange, grapefruit, pine and sweet bread. Good citrus and grassy hops bitterness in the end. Hops profile is a mix of pine and citrus. Pleasant and intense bitterness in the end. The 8% ABV is quite hidden. Great bittersweet balance M: Medium molasses body. Medium carbonation. Bittersweet and citrus aftertaste O: Great drinkability. Excellent American IPA [ BA Review @ 7/4/2014 ]

SDalkoholic (2156) - Linda Vista, California, USA - OCT 13, 2014
Bottle from Hollywood: Poured a dark golden wild honey color with a small formation of foam head which quickly retreats downwards. Aroma is bold with the scent of green oily hops while also giving off a scent of herbal shampoo. The drink delivers a tasteful flavor of piney hops that also suggest a tart yet somewhat sweet grapefruit all while the malts have balanced the beer off just right. Finish has resemblance of the taste of honey.

AbouAli (25) - Genève, SWITZERLAND - OCT 11, 2014
En bouteille Apparence : couleur ambrée, belle mousse avec une belle persistance. Arôme : nez de houblons états-uniens puissant, pourrait croire à de l’amarillo Goût : idem Corps : bonne carbonation, belle rondeur avec le goût de houblon. L’amertume et l’alcool sont bien cachés, ils accompagnent juste comme il faut les houblons. Belle rondeur. La bouteille était peut-être un peu oxydée.

ej (744) - Hauglandshella, NORWAY - OCT 10, 2014
Pours a deep orange color with a medium sized, medium dense head. Aroma is floral with hints of tropical fruits and resin. Some citrus as well. Taste is quite mellow and balanced. Subtle sweet malty notes and resinous bitterness makes for pleasant drinking. Body and co2 levels are medium.

Bottle from Appellation Wines. Appearance - amber brown with a bit of cloudiness. Decent head. Nose - orange, resin and a spicy earthy underlay. Taste - total marmalade, then goes into bitter Seville orange. Palate - medium bodied with a tangy texture and a long dry finish. Overall - lovely beer.

Bomber from Appellation Wines, cheers Ash! Pours clear amber, thin white head. Aromas of oranges, marmalade, spice and resin. Taste is too sweet though. Lots of marmalade, turning in to bitter Seville orange by the end.

660ml bottle from Hippo Beers. Hazy orange brown, reasonable head. Hoppy aroma. Tropical fruit & hop flavour. Sweet aftertaste. Just a bit too sweet for me but less so than most DIPAs.
