berniecarbo (148) - Holliston, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 15, 2013
Draft, poured deep yellow with white head. For a DIPA not overly hoppy in a good way, hide the 9 abv well

sandberglar (148) - Scottsdale, USA - MAY 7, 2010
Clear amber with a big foamy/frothy beige head. Perfect. Has notes of grapefruit, sweetness. Sweet start with a bitter, hoppy finish. Absolutely WONDERFUL!

Vestlake (143) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - AUG 11, 2014
UPDATED: AUG 13, 2014 Pours an orangey/amber color. Aroma is pine/resin hops with a little malt. Taste is mostly pine hops. Goes down smooth and you really can’t taste the alcohol. Pretty good IIPA.

Hop aroma is pretty limited, not a huge waft like some beers. Cloudy golden yellow with slight brown/orange tinge. Taste is sweet, honeyed. Lots of hop flavor, strong but not overpowering bitterness, lightly lingers. Very drinkable, alcohol not very apparent. Light back-flavor that I pick up as a peachy note, I had a similar note from US-05 yeast in a beer I just recently brewed. Interesting. Very nice, I like this one.

BeerInHeaven (135) - Brillion, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 6, 2014
pours clear amber with a thick off white head. scent is floral and citrus. tastes bitter from the start, not real bright. long bitter finish. not bad.

Wordsworth (131) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAY 10, 2013
Bottle poured into goblet. Hazy amber with a thin white head that lingers on the edge. White soapy lacing clings lightly down the glass. Smells of citrus, hops and maybe light honey. Taste is the same with a long bitter hops finish. Solid double IPA.

penstemon (127) - - OCT 29, 2012
Pours deep amber with a quickly dissipating white head. Aroma of grapefruit and caramel malt. Tastes of caramel, grapefruit, mandarin. Medium body, smooth mouthfeel almost like custard. Awesome palate. Not as bitter as I was expecting from a DIPA, and not as much crisp hop aroma/flavor in the balance as I would have liked, but still a solid tasty beer.

Hiero (127) - Dallas, Texas, USA - DEC 19, 2012
Very light for a 9% abv. and only mild bitterness. The taste is pleasant, but somewhat lacking in depth/intensity. For the price and for the high alcohol content, this is a very good beer and I would get it again, but wouldn’t necesarily recommend it as a beer you need to try.
