Beerandhockey8 (228) - Three Forks, Montana, USA - APR 13, 2014
From 22oz bottle to shaker. Pour is a hazy orange yellow, with a thick white head. Nose is big hops, floral, citrus, earthy, piney. Taste is very balanced, mix of bitter ans sweet with a light-medium body. For such a big ABV, impressive IPA. Finishessharp, very drinkable and balanced which could be dangerous.

Opaque orange, lacing foam. Grapefruit, melon, pineapple and oily hops in the aroma. Oily earthy hopbitter flavor with lots of citrus, peppermint and hints of white pepper. Overwhelming bitter taste, lasting long. (Houston 201408)

MoritzF (8444) - Bochum, GERMANY - AUG 19, 2014
(bottle, 66cl) Hazy, amber to copper colour with a big and firm, slightly tanned foamy head. Biscuity malty aroma with notes of caramel and honey, backed by floral, fruity and slightly herbal hops, including citric and lighter tropical accents. Moderately bitter and delicately sweet flavour, medium bodied with a modest carbonation. Biscuity cara-malty base with complex and drying hoppy flavours: flowery, moderately fruity and mildly herbal accents can be found; moderately dry and hop bitter finish with notes of herbs and a touch of black tea, rounded up by a delicately malty sweetness. Balanced and complex IPA. 19.VIII.14

On tap, poured a deep golden hue w/ small white head and some sticky lacing. Huge fresh hop aroma. Initial flavor is light sweet w/ a bold bitter finish of lasting duration. Tastes are tangerine, pine, and grass. Medium bodied and balanced mouthfeel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

evergreen0199 (1995) - Northwood, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 17, 2014
Cask at Great British Beer Festival 2014, Olympia, London. An orange/amber coloured pour with a thin white head on top. Hoppy, citrus, pine aroma. Tastes similar, hoppy, citrus, pine, rather bitter and lacking in complexity. I was expecting a lot from this but it didn’t really deliver.

MarcoDL (2135) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 16, 2014
Solid double IPA. Good malty body, with some nice fruity hops, a lot of hops fortunately. They did everything right, but the beer lacks some characteristic touch.
