Aroma is mildly pleasant, light caramel amber color with beautiful almond head, unique flavor with blend of mild hops and a very weak fruitiness, would drink again

I had this at Global Brew. Pours orange with a off white head. Taste citrus, sweet, floral. I thought this was pretty good. I would definitely drink this again.

Burnt orange pour with white head. Nose of citrus and pine with caramel and toasted biscuit. Flavor is citrus meat, orange, with bitter rind and soapy pine. Lightly toasted malt and caramel. Moderately dry, bitter finish with orange zest and pine. Good palate presence with light booze. This presents very similar to FFF Dreadnaught, in my mind, at less than half the cost. Certainly a very good DIPA.

750 mL at home. Amber colored w/ rather substantial light brown head. Good legs on this one. Definite malt aroma mixed with earthy and floral hops. I love a strong IPA that balances strong hops with sturdy malts. This beer is creamier than I expected without being too heavy on the palate. I really enjoy the mouthfeel, but the finish is quite clean with just a hint of bitterness. Definitely more citrus hops taste-wise than the aroma implied, but they fit nicely and donít draw too much attention to themselves. Really well balanced throughout. This is definitely a household favorite.

Bomber. Hazy amber with a thin off white head. Grassy, light pine, orange peel, alcohol and buttery crackers. Taste is sweet, but has a dryly bitter-alcohol finish. Moderately heavy, sticky feel.

A very nice surprise. Fantastic aroma and beautiful color out of the bottle, but strong alcohol on first taste. Much better after sitting for ten minutes.

Pours beautiful dark orange, with solid head and an everlasting lace that clings to the glass very well. Nice leather, woody, malty, earthy aroma. An awesome taste of hops and earth, aged malts. Medium bodied. The good experience I had with this brew makes me forgiving about the rather short and over alcoholic palate.

Tap. I donít know if I got an old sample or something, but the hop aroma on this was lacking compared to my typical expectations for a double IPA. The taste was very smooth without a lot of astringency with some good malt body and an unobtrusive hop flavor. The alcohol was not apparent in the taste. A pretty refined and drinkable DIPA.

22oz bottle. Pours a dark golden color with a small cream-colored head and soft carbonation. Resinous hop aroma with a touch of citrus and pine. Powerful resinous bitter flavor. Medium bodied with lingering bitter finish. Quite good.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
650ml bottle shared! The bottle was a year old, so that was probably the cause for the dissapointment. Nice orange copper body with a nice beige foam. The initial aroma was nice and excpected from a DIPA, nice caramel and some hops, but I couldnít really understand any flower or grassy notes... The same on the taste too! Nice start but not the expected finish..The alcohol was also present, something that dissapointed me!! A beer I would like to try as fresh as possible, due to all the good reviews out there!!!!

Cor laranja escuro, com espuma de boa formação e media persistência. Aroma de lúpulo floral e no final cítrico, caramelo, malte. No sabor, amargor equilibrado, com dulçor de caramelo no meio e final seco com amargor persistente. Muito boa.
