RZahler (47) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JAN 8, 2011
Poured from the bottle into a pint glass. The aroma is not as potent as other Double IPA’s, although there is a nice hint of hops that comes through. Appearance is a clear golden color and was poured with a nice lingering frothy white head. The taste is medium sweet with a bitter, salty aftertaste. The palate has a light body with a lively carbonation with a long finish.

drewbeerme (3886) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 28, 2010
Bottle, pours golden with foamy white head. Nose has some sweet honeydew, pinnapple, and grass. Flavors are sweet caramel, melon, pear. orange peel zest. This is really an uninspired very average beer.

Ughsmash (7251) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 21, 2010
Bottled. Poured translucent medium orange with a towering cap of sticky white head. The aroma picked up fresh grass and piney hoppage over a soft pale and honey base.. straightforward and well presented. The flavor found lighter fruits and honey at the core, with a sharp, and not always enjoyable blend of assertive grassy, floral, and peppery bitterness around.. alcohol amplified and was a little raw at the end.. not as clean as the nose. Medium-bodied and a touch thick on the palate.. some very good components in here, but it didn’t come together all that well.

SODAK14 (298) - Rapid City, South Dakota, USA - DEC 20, 2010
I’m not a real big IPA lover so the score I give it may a little misleading. It is actually one of the few, what I call, decent IPAs I have tried. But would I try it again...no.

Dogbrick (8950) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 17, 2010
Bottle at Freakin’ Frog in Las Vegas. The beer is a lustrous orange-copper color with a medium foamy light beige head that recedes slowly. Sticky sheet of lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus fruits and hops. Medium body with flavors of zesty citrus, hops and bready malt. The finish is hoppy with a lingering slightly resiny hops aftertaste. Above average overall.

nuplastikk (4874) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 21, 2010
12oz bottle. Slightly hazy orange-tan. Thin, creamy head. Fresh citrus, apricot, tangerine, peach. Smooth, rich mouthfeel. A pretty nice DIPA, very clean for the style. It still has some thick and resiny hop tones and big malt sugariness, as per the style, but really comes off balanced. Clean, straightforward, perfectly executed.

waolsen (1367) - Littleton, Colorado, USA - NOV 16, 2010
Copper pour. Thin head. Light lacing. Light earthy aroma. Grassy hops. Bitter. Nice balance

DruncanVeasey (7379) - NUNEATON, CONF N, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - NOV 1, 2010
12oz bottle. Orange liqueur, melon and tinned peach aroma with plenty of alcohol, and hints of wine gums, Darjeeling and honey. Dusty copper with a slender magnolia head. Slick, slightly hot and grapefruity with a streak of softer, tropical Fruit Salad hop and leafy Darjeeling. Honeyed, floral..but somewhat booze-laden and charmless, without the brilliant hop freshness of some of the paler, lower ABV US beers I’ve had this week.

smith4498 (3167) - Miami, Florida, USA - OCT 24, 2010
Bottle from a trade with cbkschubert. Pours clear copper color with creamy light tan head. Citrus hop aroma with some alcohol. Boozy and bready flavor with some hop bitterness. Medium body with average carbonation. Thanks Craig.

wedgie9 (2501) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 17, 2010
Tasted from a 12oz bottle obtained in a trade. Pours hazy intense orange with an average white head that leaves spotty lace. The nose is orange peel with bread malt and a hint of banana and bitter hops. The flavor is just as the nose would suggest with orange and bread with the hops taking over the back of the palate. The body is medium with average carbonation and a long bitter hops and caramel orange finish.
