Might have had an older bottle but I thought this was pretty weak for a double IPA. The taste was pretty good but the bite just wasn’t there. Definitely could have been an older bottle from what a friend said about the store.

Solid DIPA. Deep orange/peach pour with a foamy white head that left a ton of lacing. Big malt and hop flavours as expected. Dinging a point for overall because the 9% ABV is pretty noticeable where a lot of other comparable DIPAs don’t have that issue. Still very good!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Slightly hazy orange red body with a thin head of small to tiny bubbles. Interesting aroma, the first thought I had was cinnamon, followed by honey and grapefruit juice. Big bitter hop flavor but with a subtle hint of the cinnamon again. Dry finish with some lingering bitterness.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy orange with huge off-white foamy head. Nose is pine and grapefruit with some caramel hiding in the background. Modestly sweet start with a good buildup of bitter citrus and some pear for balance. Medium oily mouth with a dry finish. Well balanced.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
cloudy amber color with a huge head (a bit foamy); fruity hop aroma; very hoppy, but a bit on the fruity side; piney hop flavor on a medium-bodied malt base; (based on the other reviews I am thinking that the bottle I bought may have been slightly skunked, which may account for the fruity flavors and huge, foamy head)

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
First of all, exactly what I want this beer to look like. Hazy peach/amber, solid rocky off white head that would last until Christmas. Great. Aroma is a great mix of pine and grapefruit. Pine dominates at first, mellows out (yeah right!) into citrus. Taste is fruity, almost sweet at first but then it starts to take the bitterness very seriously. Feel is dry, a bit abrasive but in a great way. Super beer.

Bottle. Slightly hazy copper colour with a medium white head that is rather thick. Strong aroma of citrus and hops, pine. Taste is mild sweet malt, pine with a long lasting bitterness. Overall quite hoppy. Very nice.

[5364-20130518] Bottle. Some hard liquor vodka in the aroma. Hazy, dark brown body with a medium-lasting foamy off-white head. Bitter toasted grains and a bit of smooth lemon rind in the flavour. Medium body. Good, great name too. (7/3/7/3/14) 3.4

UPDATED: MAR 10, 2014 Pours hazy jasper, fluffy thin off white head. Aroma is grapefruit, oranges, pine needles and a little caramel. Taste is bitter with flavors of caramel, nectarines, oranges and a little bit of spice and resin. Good mouthfeel, fizzy and bitter with a dry lingering finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: MAR 19, 2014 650ml bottle. Pours a hazy amber, finger of off white head, good lacing. Aromas of strong hoppy citrus, grapefruit, caramel, some tropical fruits, pineapple. Taste up front the citrus smacks you in the face with a grapefruit, in a good way, some light caramel notes. Medium carbonation. And rolls into an amazing bitter lingering finish, not overbearing. Excellent beer.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pretty certain I reviewed a different beer when I thought I first had it on tap. This is an update.
On tap. Slightly hazy copper, no cap. Aroma of citrus, tropical fruit, toffee, biscuit. Taste is a citrusy sweetness upfront, with a gentle rindy bitterness. Medium carbonation.
