UPDATED: DEC 23, 2013 Bottle. Very slightly hazy orange pour with a small soapy white head. Nose is pine and tropical fruit hops, but I’m getting a bit of aspirin in the nose as well. Wonder if this bottle is a bit old. Moderate palate with good carbonation. Taste is an initial sharp pine and pineapple hop, but its well balanced and finishes clean. Thinking I need to try this a bit fresher.

Bottle at freakin frog. Clear gold with a wickedly sticky white cap. Aroma isn't much of anything. Very muted pine, with a touch of citrus. Wow. For a double, this is weak. Taste is light caramel with watered down grapefruit and pine needles. Palate is left starving for something.

kwik-lime (1418) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 15, 2012
Nicely hopped with a dry bitterness, matched by sweetness with hints of vanilla and caramel. Really good beer.

A decent double IPA, but not particularly unique. Nice hop profile and palate, but not as memorable as others.

raphael (938) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 11, 2012
Love the label. sawdust aroma, some caramel. clear yellow amber with solid off white head. odd in the mouth, a vapor, tongue attack. flavor swings on the sweet side wihtsome solid, woodsy bitterness. static and odd

Trev (1968) - Lakeville, Minnesota, USA - MAY 8, 2012
Bottle: Orangish pour with a thick off white head. aroma is caramel and piney hop. some pineapple/tropical fruit as well. Flavour is more of the same, caramel sweetness to the front backed by tropical/resinous hop presence. Light burnt sugar tones. Alc is blended well. Not too sweet, not too bitter.

boFNjackson (4184) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 30, 2012
Tap @ Fifteenth Ave. Hophouse... Poured reddish/amber with a grayish head. Nose was resinous with big time hops. Loads of noticeable hop flavors, but not too bitter. Citrus, pine, woodsy, and a bit dry towards the end. Some malt flavor crept in for balance too.

MadDogMD (213) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - APR 27, 2012
Incredibly clear, light orange color. Nice lacing. Nose of bitter, yet sweet hops. Citrus, tropical fruits, candy sweetness. Alcohol hidden very well! This is one of my go-to IIPA’s, esp for the price- love it!

TexHill (7) - Texas, USA - APR 25, 2012 does not count
Pours a beautiful amber with good clarity and a nice full head. Plenty of lacing down the glass as I drink it. Great citrusy aroma and tastes just like a higher alcohol west coast IPA should. Nice bitter finish and yeah, you can tell the alcohol is there, but definitely in a good way. This double IPA really surprised me, especially since I only paid $8 for a sixer. Really, really nice example of this style. Gonna stock up on this one.

Pours an orange color with a large creamy off white head. Nose is woodsy, herbal, sweat, sunflower seeds, and caramel. Creamy mouthfeel. Not bad.
