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.

ilovedarkbeer (2374) - Dallas, Texas, USA - APR 25, 2012
Pours an orange color with a large creamy off white head. Nose is woodsy, herbal, sweat, sunflower seeds, and caramel. Creamy mouthfeel. Not bad.

mcberko (7830) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 21, 2012
12 oz. bottle, pours a clear golden orange with a creamy white head. Pine trees on the nose, with peaches and sweet malts to back. Flavour of piney hops, grapefruits and other more subtle tropical fruits, and earthy caramel malts - bitter dry piney hops on the finish. Quite solid though nothing distinguishable about this that makes it a standout.

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - APR 15, 2012
Serving: 12 oz. bottle via trade. It pours a hazy, muddled orange with a thick, off white head. The nose is a huge blast of overripe tropical fruit. Lots of pineapple, guava, and starfruit. The flavor has some sticky malt sweetness up front which is quickly blasted away by all those tropical hops. A big bruiser of a IIPA. Medium to full body with softer carbonation and a long, bitter finish. Nice brew!

IrishBoy (3905) - Bakersfield, California, USA - MAR 29, 2012
12 oz bottle from Odeed. Nose is big time toffee, with a hint of pine and citrus. Lightly hazed copper with a big pale beige head that laces heavily and lasts a long time. Flavor is bitterness, toffee, and a bit of pine resin.

smaynard6000 (688) - Apopka, Florida, USA - MAR 26, 2012
12oz bottle. Pours transparent color with a generous off-white head. Intense hop aroma of spruce and citrus. Strong hoppy bitterness with just a touch of sweetness. Medium bodied, nice creamy mouthfeel. This is a great beer.

ImtheSlime (10) - Norwood, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 6, 2012
Pours a light copper with a one finger white head with great retention. Smells of grapefruits, pineapples, green apples, and slight kiwi all laid over a bready, malty backbone, slight cloves and banana. It tastes resiny, piney and citrusy, hops up front and all around with biscuity undertones. It’s fruity and sweet with a slight hidden sourness and acidity, wonderfully floral. It’s smooth over the tongue with carbonation being quite evident on the sides and in the finish, somewhat creamy, but not thick with some hidden acidity in the finish. Overall, a full flavored, complex and balanced beer. This was a great to come home to on a blazing hot day after a long, tiring day of work. At 9%, it’s dangerously hard to put down. Full and complex, this was a great gift and a wonderfully pleasing drink. I wish I could get my hands on more of it.

mkel07 (3881) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - MAR 4, 2012
Draught at Todd English Pub in Las Vegas. You can really taste the alcohol in this and it is also present in the aroma. Sunshine orange colour with a skinny film of white foam that laces the glass. Aroma is pleasant and fills the nose with citrus hop aromas. Not as hopped up as some other’s but there is a good balance and it is not too overpowerering in the mouth.

Beerology (27) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - FEB 28, 2012
A deep and hazy copper with an creamy head. Sweet aroma of citrus, sweet fruit, caramel, and pine. Taste is pretty sweet too, with a the hops seeming, a touch boozy. Not a bad beer. ---Rated via Beerology
