Dogbrick (9812) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 17, 2010
Bottle at Freakin’ Frog in Las Vegas. The beer is a lustrous orange-copper color with a medium foamy light beige head that recedes slowly. Sticky sheet of lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus fruits and hops. Medium body with flavors of zesty citrus, hops and bready malt. The finish is hoppy with a lingering slightly resiny hops aftertaste. Above average overall.

GT2 (9410) - Oceanside, California, USA - OCT 16, 2011
355mL thanks to blutt59. Pours a clear orange orange with a large, off-white head. Rings of sticky lace. Nose is sticky booze, red fruits, sweet nectarine. Taste up front is richer, syrupy, and sharp boozy. Ends with pretty soft balance. Not bad at all but sugary and pretty boozy. Not really bitter at all.

DrSilverworm (8868) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 10, 2011
12oz bottle my great parents brought back from a recent road trip. "Born: 5/27/2011". Orange color with lots of fine, suspended sediment, so beautiful when you shine a light through it. Webby lacing on the surface, and some on the side of the glass as well. Mm. Great, solid maltiness. Mild alcohol but no warm burn, complements the resin hop nicely. The level of hop is very appropriate, it’s conservative but nice. Mild bitterness. Very light, crisp carbonation, long aftertaste. This brew is definitely a sipper, and for that purpose this palate is perfect in my opinion. Solid and satisfying... Another fantastic Imperial IPA.

Pour out of 12 oz bottle, slightly hazy orange pour with white head, aroma brought orange, grapefruit, pine, hints of spice and a slight yeasty note. Taste was a mix of grass, bread, biscuit into a bit of caramel, orange, grapefruit, slight old hoppy notes, finishing fairly bitter.

deyholla (8568) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 27, 2011
Bottle. Pours a clear orangish amber with a white head that lasts throughout the beer and laces slightly. Aroma has a good amount of pine with with a bit of sweet grains and a hint of caramel. Flavor begins with a good amount of pine that has a bit of resin and mellows to have some sweet grains in the finish.

BVery (8187) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - MAY 22, 2012
UPDATED: DEC 23, 2013 Bottle. Very slightly hazy orange pour with a small soapy white head. Nose is pine and tropical fruit hops, but I’m getting a bit of aspirin in the nose as well. Wonder if this bottle is a bit old. Moderate palate with good carbonation. Taste is an initial sharp pine and pineapple hop, but its well balanced and finishes clean. Thinking I need to try this a bit fresher.

DuffMan (8176) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 13, 2010
Bottle. Pours an orange amber, clear, with a big, lacy, gold-tinted head. Intensely resinous, grapefruity hop aroma. Oily hoppy body, juicy hops dominate, with the expected long bitter finish. This one struck the right balance for me, not too heavy or sticky, but still an immensely satisfying hop bomb.

olio (8061) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 25, 2012
Draught @ Freakin’ Frog, Las Vegas.
Pours hazy dark amber color with small lasting head. Aroma of hops, fruits, caramel and goose berry bush. Flavour of fruits, caramel, hops, resin, goose berries and grass. Rather bitter fruity palate, dry finish.
