Pours clear gold amber with a medium frothy head that clears quickly. Aroma is pine, grapefruit and a bit of malt. Very bitter hops with a smooth finish, nice level of carbonation. Really a great example of a double IPA.

Tap at The Hay Merchant. Poured a deep, yet clear orange with a one-finger white head and great lacing. Smell is caramel, grapefruit, pine, grass, and citrus. Taste is much the same and very well-balanced. Flavors of big pine, grass, and resin with a sweet caramel backbone to smooth it out leading to a moderately bitter finish. Great sticky mouthfeel with high carbonation. This IPA is very well-balanced and not one characteristic overpowers any of the others. Nicely done.

mad props to coldbrewky and KAggie97 for this one. dark burnt orange capped by small silky off white head. lovely lacing around the glass. Strong malt nose with addition of pine and caramel. This is a malt bomb with a creamy body that melts around the mouth. Enough bitterness but hop flavors are a bit subdued. Pine and citrus do linger a bit.

Thanks to Kaggie for this haul. My father and UDbeernut were able to enjoy a bottle each. Lightly hazy orange amber Creamy tanish head grows quickly and then stops abrubtly. Nose is strongly backed malts with hop afterthoughts. Nose grows to butter covered malts after it sits a bit. Drippy tight legs. Much like the Snake Plisken tag line in Escape From LA..."I thought you’d be bigger....." I said of the body. Hops gently and last and linger but are strangely unobtrusive. Grapefruit with light sugar added...thin finish of malt. A surprisingly subtle brew.

Dark gold, decent head. Aroma if IPA - tons of citrus and fruit. Taste is malt and sweetness up front, but gives way to taste of cantaloupe and perhaps. peaches. Fruity. Excellent.

UPDATED: JUN 16, 2012 I had this under the name of Endeavour.
Wonderful aroma - I sipped very slowly so I could enjoy the aroma. Citrus and hops.
Very bitter but not overpoweringly so. Slight sweetness.
Heavy, not overly thick.
Overall, an excellent beer.

22 oz. bottle courtesy of a trade with crajun. Pours a mostly clear copper with a moderate off white head that lasted through the first quarter of the glass and left partial lace. Very pleasant aroma of resinous pine, caramel, and a bit of malt. The flavor is more a combination of pine and citrus with some mild-moderate support from the malt. Mild-moderate bitterness at the finish. Medium-full bodied. Solid.
