This was poured into a snifter. The appearance was a nice looking transparent amber color. Carbonation was seen at the beginning moderately rising and then as the beer warmed up, there was none seen. The head was about a fingerís worth of white foaminess. Lacing clung nicely all around the glass. The smell had a moderate bittersweet citrus and piney hops being graced with a nice set of grassy hop oils. Light sweet onion arranges itself in and around the aroma. The taste was mainly bittersweet all around. Sweet onion, grassiness, pine and citrus blend eloquently and give off a nice sharpness on my tastebuds. A light citrusy aftertaste runs into a nice sweet finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a nice sessionable feel about it. Carbonation ran fairly smooth to allow the bittersweet to become the harshness trying to wreck the palate. Overall, this was a well done DIPA. It does everything itís supposed to do.

Brentv (514) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 9, 2015
From bomber, pours a clear light orange with a one-finger white head that stays nicely and leaves a lot of sticky residue and lacing on the glass. Aroma and taste of citrus and orange candy with additional spice in the taste and a strong malt presence over the bitterness. Medium to full sticky mouthfeel and a nice bitter finish. Props for the handsome bottle art. This is a very nice DIPA.

Zymurgeist2 (1361) - Redwood City, California, USA - JUN 6, 2015
From bomber to tulip glass. Aroma is dominated by malt, with both a tropical hop aspect and alcohol noticeable in the background. Pours a clear orange, copper with a moderate large white head that lingers with various sized bubbles. Taste is a little cloying and slight alcohol heat. This is much more malt forward than hop forward. Piney hops start to show well as it warmed, but the hops are one dimensional. Bitter finish.

rosenbergh (8897) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 11, 2015
Draught at the Speakeasy, San Francisco, CA.
Hazy golden colour with a small white head. Strong tangerine and fruity hops in the aroma. The flavour is sweet fruity hops, peach, mild grapefruit and moderate bitterness. Balanced and tasty.

ACHops (997) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 27, 2015
22 oz bomber served in a tulip glass. Pours dark orange golden with thick white head. Aroma is faintly sweet caramel malt and big earthy hops with a slight citrusy sweetness on the back. Taste is big medium caramel malt and dank piney bitter hops. Lingers substantially bitter on the finish. Lacks the nuance and balance of the better west coast DIPAs, this is still an old favorite and delivers plenty of flavor.

NikkTwist (2091) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 13, 2015
UPDATED: MAR 14, 2015 Draft at Moriartys. Very hazy orange amber pour. Started with a good amount of pillowy white foam. Some lace. Tons of orange pith, pips and zest. Much more bitter than sweet. ABV is not hidden (and feels higher than 8.5%). Medium blonde malts and faint in the background. Ultimately feels like highly alcoholic Mimosa. Certainly fuller and fruitier than most Imperial/Double IPAs - but not particularly complex.

Itís got an amazing smoothness and a kickass bottle. Itís pretty bitter, but it isnít a knock you out of your shoes type of smack bitter, itís more of a well-balanced bitter that i canít stop drinking. This is a great beer.
