DocJitsu (1045) - Florida, USA - JUN 1, 2014
Pours a murky, yet vibrant orange-golden color with a perfectly formed bumpy, foamy eggshell colored head sitting atop. Tangy citrus and mango with a lot of white pepper on the nose. Thick texture for a DIPA. Good balance in the flavor. Bitter and sweet are well-balanced. The hop profile and the malt character interact seamlessly for tropical fruit quality. Alcohol is very well-obscured.

bottle - Pourd. s up a big, dense off-white head. It has a very good citrus and pine hop aroma. There’s a big hoppy flavor with citrus notes, a solid malt backbone, and a long bitter finish. To me it’s a bit less bitter tasting than many beers of this style. It’s very good though.

Don’t know if it is because the can is really fresh, but this is a great double. The aroma literally hits you seconds after you open the can. The taste is exactly where you’d want it to be... I guess it could be a little more complex, but for the price this is a great beer. I would recommend this beer to any hop lover.

Lots of pine hop aromas. Very hoppy taste but don't understand the big malt comment - I'm not getting it. Seems more bitter than 75 ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jbruner (2478) - Athens, Georgia, USA - MAY 22, 2014
Thanks to Wittales in the local 3.14 swap. Pours a slightly hazy golden brown from the can with fluffy off-white head that leaves great lace. Aroma of nice piney and grapefruit hops, hints of pale crystal and a bit of oxidation. Taste is more oxidized, pretty much just hop bitterness with slight maltiness and pine. Moderate carbonation, lasting bitterness, a bit of boozy burn. Not too bad but nothing that exciting.

deaconmike (399) - Roswell, Georgia, USA - MAY 13, 2014
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 (567) - 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 (653) - 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 (1451) - @ $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.
