Pailhead (5837) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - JUN 12, 2011
Bottle: The aroma consists of caramel, fruit, pine, and grapefruit. It pours a transparent amber with a one finger orange-tinged off-white head that fades to a thin film outlined by a slightly thicker ring. The flavor starts with fruit and caramel. The finish has notes of grapefruit and light oxidation. Medium bodied with mild carbonation and somewhat sticky mouthfeel. Overall, I’m not a huge fan of a strong caramel presence in IPA/IIPAs.

highibus (758) - Vail, Arizona, USA - JUN 11, 2011
On tap at 1702 in Tucson. Really nice hop aroma with decent white head. Extremely good lacing marking each and every sip. Medium body with just enough malt to counter act the wonderful hop presence. This is the first beer from squatters thayt I have really liked and I really like it.

kidmartinek (3985) - austin, Texas, USA - JUN 10, 2011
Brilliant copper color beer with a nice white head. The aroma is of enticing malt and light, citrusy hops, just enough to lead you on. This beer gives the feeling of complete satisfaction on the palate. It’s got a full, round body. It hits the lips with a lively carbonation that fizzes into a hop bouquet, turns a little spicy and finishes with a warming feeling in the chest. It leaves intricate, white lace on the glass. You can’t drink enough of this.

carboloader (674) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUN 9, 2011
From bottle. Pours transparent amber, with thick creamy off-white head that lasts and leaves much lacing. Some carbonation bubbles rising. Pine resin and citrus, some sweet malt, and strong alcohol presence masked mostly by the bitter finish. A bit cloying to me, but appropriate for this double IPA. A decent example of the style. The hops could be more pronounced and varied in character, but decent and an ass kicker if you drink more than 1 or 2 quickly.

bleeng (1591) - Houston nowhere near Beersel, Texas, USA - MAY 28, 2011
Draft at Todds English Pub Las Vegas NV. Bright gold and clear-this just looks good!. Nose of citrusy and piney hops but the profile is held down a bit by the coldness. Taste has a really nice piney profile and is balanced by some maltiness in the back end. Incredibly smooth and easy to drink. Thick and a bit stick with a moderate alcohol kick at the end. Very enjoyable and I would love to get some bottles of this.

beerbastard (809) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - MAY 26, 2011
Man! this is good! Oily hop resins backed by a citrus nose. Starts with a bang, lots of flavor, sweet carmel malts, lots of hop flavors of orange., Love the balance, the bitterness is in the background. the finish shows hops, but not dryness. Mmmmm, I like!

Great double IPA. This is a big beer but drinks surprisingly easy. It’s sweetness really helps balance out the large amount of hops in this bottle. I would drink one of these any time
