On tap. Clear amber with white head. Aroma is pale malt and light citrus hops. Taste is resiny hops with caramel malt. Body is medium plus with a bit of tingly carb. Overall, just an ok DIPA.

Nsanders (498) - St Paul, Minnesota, USA - MAY 4, 2014
Tap at Pizza Luce. Deep amber with big foamy head but only spotty lacing. Resiny citrus, mango, strawberry, brown sugar and alcohol. Strong fruity/sugary sweetness with alcohol and resiny bitter finish. Medium-heavy body with foamy, slippery feel. Very nice fruity IPA.

BLADT (622) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - APR 22, 2014
Bottle pour. Clean orange, amber in mug. Lots of earthy hops and pine resin on nose. Mild manure. Taste is super sticky. Lots of pin needle and orange rind. Flavors are full, but disjointed. High carbonation. Good effort.

pepsican (1444) - @ $13.99, Iowa, USA - APR 22, 2014
would argue this is a gold ale instead of a double IPA but wat the H do I know¿ Gold with an off white head. Big hop nose of tropical fruit and weed. Flavor is a touch harsh. Lots of bitter here but not crazy for the style. A touch too sweet for me, creamy. Petes fine for $8.99 for a 6 pack of cans, 9% is more than enough boost for most bros I would imagine. A fine gold ale.

TipsyMcStager (1139) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - APR 22, 2014
(on tap, Henris, Phoenix, AZ) Pours a slightly hazy orange with mid range head. Nose is pungent pine hops. Piney hop flavour with caramel. Kind of a rough finish. Middle of the road DIPA.

gkeh (202) - Texas, USA - APR 3, 2014
It’s good, it has a maltier nose than anticipated, bit its good. Pine and citrus notes are there. Pours a hazy amber, nice head with good lacing and legs on it. Taste is a nice balance of malts and hops, orange and grapefruit are there, as well as pine, with light caramel malts. Good brew!

Beerandhockey8 (228) - Three Forks, Montana, USA - APR 2, 2014
From 12oz bottle to tulip glass. Pour is a nice deep amber, thicker head that rose to the top and dissipated quickly. Once is light floral and light hop, slight alcohol. Unusual aroma, usually imperials are dominated by hops. Taste is bitter, light medium body with hints of sweetness for a touch of balance. Very crisp and sharp on the palate, finishes very clean. Interesting beer, balanced for an imperial yet harsh at the same time.

Bottle at Squatters in SLC. Thanks to the inane laws of Utah, you can get all the tiny samples of 3.2 beer you want to sample, but if you want something with higher alcohol content, you have to buy a full bottle in whatever format happens to be available. Which means if you are a sampler, you end up actually consuming more alcohol and fewer samples, which utterly defeats the intended purpose of the law. Rant over. Last beer of the night at Squatters - not because I didn’t want to try more stuff, but because I didn’t want to be drinking full size servings of everything else I wanted to try, particularly of the high octane stuff. Stupid laws. OK, so the rant wasn’t quite over after all. Medium orange amber, clear, decent head. Huge hop aroma, pine sap oriented. Flavor was a near match - caramel accented malts with a huge hit of pine and earthy hops. Really aggressive co-humulone content here, had a certain harshness as a result. Not a bad beer, but not my favorite profile.
