RedSox2004 (1360) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - JAN 18, 2015
On tap at The Daily Pint. Hazy amber-orange with a slight haze, two finger off-white head with great retention and very nice lace. Big citrus and floral hop aroma with tangerine, grapefruit, caramel, and pine. Taste is similar with a big floral, perfumy, complex hop profile accompanied by tangerine, resiny pine, orange zest, caramel, white pepper, grapefruit, and grass. Medium body, oily mouthfeel, medium carbonation and a wonderfully balanced, slightly mouth-puckering, bitter sweet finish.

Aurelius (4494) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JAN 18, 2015
Hazy orange-tan, frog’s egg ivory head. Nice west coast hop, AIPA aroma with fruit and sugars. Citrus pith, pineapple, malty, not hyper bitter but a lot of hop complexity. Lightly sweet, mouthy. Bitterness builds with a doughy pineapple and sprucey aftertaste. Pretty tasty. On tap, Momos.

Shinskyweiser (47) - - JAN 17, 2015
Pours a cloudy orange. Smells of pine, tangerine, mango, and slight grain. Taste of bitter, resiny pine dominate followed by mango, grapefruit and tangerine. Finishes resiny and dry. Very good ipa.

jjgmd (1584) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - JAN 17, 2015
On tap at Brass Tap with Audrie, pours a dark amber orange pour with a small white head. Nose is straight up citrus, with tropical hues and strong passion fruit. Taste is bitter sweet, with delicious tropical fruits and balanced superbly. Finish is dry and bitter sweet and ends on the delicious citrus notes. A great DIPA. Quaff Score 8 /10

Blairgus (2865) - California, USA - JAN 14, 2015

TattooJack (191) - Illinois, USA - JAN 6, 2015
Poured from a coupla bombers into the pint glass, great looking thick orange foamy glass of beer. Nice and hoppy, nice and strong, with above average bitter. I appreciate all 7 of the hops.

morri (233) - NORWAY - JAN 3, 2015
650ml bottle from Vinmonopolet Vika. Tiny off-white head. Hazy dark orange head. Aroma is really piney, backed with a nice malt sweetness. Some caramel and grapefruit aroma as well. Mostly sweet on the tongue, with a great dry bitter finish. Extremely well balanced.

pikyman (2) - Quebec, CANADA - JAN 3, 2015 does not count
Une très bonne ipa avec 7 différents houblon. Évidemment l’amertume est au rendez-vous, mais son côté floral vient adoucir ce 90 ibu. C’est carrément une main de fer dans un gant de velours. À savourer encore et encore!

anstei (111) - SWITZERLAND - JAN 3, 2015
650ml bottle from Drinks of the World at Zurich HB. Grassy hoppy nose. Pours a cloudy amber with a foam that sticks to the glass. Taste is dominated by bitterness and hops, but this hops combination works on its own without a malty backbone.

McNeillR (1451) - SCOTLAND - JAN 2, 2015
Hazy light amber wee ringed head. Nose is crisp, sweet, briskly hoppy and brusque cheesy orange. Initial taste creamy, brassy hop. Lemon and almost a bit minty citrus. Grassy, lemon and then a big marmalade rich bitterness. Firm carbonation, lean malt for an American DIPA - not quite oversweet malt. Finishes smoothly tart orange, linger even more strewn marmalade mintiness. Passed the ABV well all told but more rich than juicy.

Bottle, Appellation Wine, Edinburgh
