Jabic (431) - Brigantine, New Jersey, USA - AUG 3, 2011
Ar: Big hop aroma - piney resin, grapefruit rind, and earthy/woody notes. Ap: Light amber, fairly clear - bit off-white head with a creamy texture and great retention and lacing. T: Sweet caramel, grapefruit and pine up front - citrus notes really linger and mingle with a high bitterness, and earthy resin comes out a bit more toward the finish - finish is warming (though the alcohol is exceptionally smooth for 9%) with some caramel notes lingering. P: Medium-full with fairly high carbonation - finish drys out relatively thanks to the bitterness. O: Really a beautiful 2X IPA - a bit more malt and sweetness than some west coast examples, but the plentiful hops still take center stage.

Bottle pours more copper than orange for an IPA. Aroma seems to be a house style for Squatters: more malt than hops. Like cooked marmalade. Overall, hides its 9.0% ABV extremely well, has lots of sweet malt flavor - a very good beer.

Tap. Solid double IPA. The flavors are pretty mild, but the alcohol content is evident and makes this a sipping beer. A tad on the sweet side for my tastes.

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.

How things change so fast. Got this today in the CAN! since it has been some time seeing these on the shelf and did not have one of these tan drab cans in my collection. I had tried this once before and knew that I liked it from the colorfully labled bottle back in September 2011. Checked my notes on my personal database and yes I did give this brew good marks back then and have that bottle sitting high up on my display of beers. Sadly the CANS did not live up to the high alpha acids of a double IPA and yes there was the metalic taste and aroma. Still good brew with the nice pine, citrus, hop flavor, but nowhere as good as back in 2011 from the six pack of 12 ounce bottles. From previous info would have givin this high marks but yet another case of loss due to getting it in the CAN!

LearninBeer (412) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - JUL 17, 2014
The aroma is hops! Spruce, citrus and floral. Pours a copper/orange/gold color, hazy with big white head, mostly diminishing and excellent lacing. The taste is light to medium bitter. The body is medium, the texture creamy, the carbonation lively and the finish bitter. A very good beer.

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.

Brandon1989 (401) - Euless, Texas, USA - JAN 5, 2014
pours a slight hazy golden color with a medium white head that leaves lots of lacing. the aroma was very hoppy, mild pine, lots of tropical fruits, citrusy. the taste was tons of hop bitterness up front and ends sweeter with some of the citrus coming in as well. the taste lingers around for awhile.
