Beerandhockey8 (221) - 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.

Grzesiek79 (3139) - Radom, POLAND - JUL 25, 2014
Bardzo dobre IPA amerykanskie pelne cytrusowego zapachu, miodu, brzoskwin i ananasa. Zapach perfumowany i kwiatowy. Piana trwala spora i jakosciowa. Kolor metnawy srednio ale ladnego koloru pomaranczy ciemnej z lekkimi refleksami bursztynowymi. Smak slodowy i slodkawy na poczatku ale koncowka jest piekielnie goryczkowa. Bardzo wyraziste i zdominowane przez przerozne wersje chmielu. Polecam amatorom dobrego podwojnego IPA

On tap at Hangar on the wharf earlier today. Here’s my take on it. This was poured into a tulip. The appearance had a cloudy orange to amber color a quickly dissipating head that left some light lacing in the wake. The aroma had a sweet ruby red grapefruit up front backed up nicely by some mango and orange. The taste was somewhat sweet but carried a nice gentle bitterness about it. There was a refined sort of citrus perhaps somewhat rind-like quality in the aftertaste that led to a dry sweet finish. On the palate, this one sat just a tad less than medium on the body with a somewhat decent sessionability about it. Though the carbonation was good for the style, it did seem slightly subdued. Overall, I think this was a quality DIPA worthy of having again, but probably not necessarily one to really seek out.

Bottle sample at Rogue Brewery tasting at Beer&Beyond, Tel Aviv. Clear golden with quickly diminishing low beige head. Hoppy floral aroma, flowers, raisins, light honey-ish. Floral flavor, bitter grass, earthy, very alcoholic but balanced. Lingering dry bitter aftertaste. Medium to full body.

Case (214) - GERMANY - JUL 23, 2014
Pours clear orange with medium head. Nose is pine, herbs, malt, citrus. Taste is loads and loads of hops, pine, citrus, grapefruit, pineapple, honey. Oily body, alcohol well hidden. Very complex in flavor but simply delicious.

pinkzambia (1432) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUL 22, 2014
Bottle: Cloudy copper color with a bubbly off-white head. Super tangy in the hop aroma with a robust hop punch in the face flavor. SUPER bitter. The feel dissipates quickly but bitter taste sticks around for a while. Not bad.

A nice double IPA, but I only had a tasting sample. Need to try a full glass of this. Hoppy, well balanced. Abv well masked.

tmoreau (2315) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - JUL 22, 2014
Shared bomber poured to snifters, showing a cloudy, orangey amber color, with a bubbly layer of off white head foam. and dots & dashes of lacing. The nose was sweet, grapefruit, mango, orange, dank graininess, and wet grass. The dankness lingered throughout the taste and into the finish, as did the moderate, citrus & rind hop bitterness. A little less than medium bodied, with fair carbonation to propel the flavor. Decent, but not overly wowed as a DIPA.

Davros (1869) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUL 22, 2014
Pours orange with a fading large head. Nose shows copious amounts of sweet clean malt, pine and resin. Quite nice in terms of the malt character. Very similar flavours, very malty but still quite clean. Gets piny along with some resinous hops followed by a sharp, abrasive bitterness. Could use some more carbonation.

One of the better double ipas I’ve had in awhile. Pours a pretty gold/orange with great lacing. Aromas are juicy citrus and tropical fruit. More juicy fruit flavors with a nice punch of hops at the end. This is an amazing beverage.
