ADfan (691) - Orange County, California, USA - DEC 2, 2014
The beer pours a golden color with a medium head. The aroma is heavy with pine and citrus like pineapple and grapefruit. Taste is more citrus with lemon and grapefruit and there is some malts on the backend. Pretty thick body.

BLADT (680) - 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.

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.

camborne (656) - Hopkins, Minnesota, USA - FEB 24, 2013
Nice citrus nose. Taste us more citrus and some sweetness. Very balanced 2ipa . Almost doesn’t taste like a 2 ipa which is kinda nice. Nicely done

Bottle. Pour is hazy gold. Aroma of resin and some fruit. Taste is both tropical (maybe pineapple) and pine.

nsquishee (632) - Richfield, Minnesota, USA - MAY 12, 2012
A decent double IPA, but not particularly unique. Nice hop profile and palate, but not as memorable as others.

bigbish (619) - California, USA - FEB 27, 2011
Not what I was expecting. It isn’t all that bitter. Much more emphasis on the malts. It has a nice body, caramel tones, with just a touch of pine and citrus bitterness.

First of all, this bottle has horrendous label art. No matter. The pour is a clear reddish color. Thin white head. Aroma is orange and some sort of cleaning product. Like a citrus pine sol sort of thing. Flavor is totally thin and watery. Not sure how you manage this in an IIPA. It has the boozy candy sweetness of an imperial, but then no palate whatsoever. Flavors are fine. Just some candied orange peel and crystal malt. Not much bitterness, but who needs balance when there is so much flavor and body missing already. No off flavors to complain about, but not much to like.
