Bottle thanks to bu11zeye. Pours with a large, off-white head over a hazy golden body. Aroma of orange, pine and alcohol. Taste is bitter with orange, alcohol, caramel and fruits. Light bubbles, low residual sweetness.

mcberko (7458) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 21, 2012
12 oz. bottle, pours a clear golden orange with a creamy white head. Pine trees on the nose, with peaches and sweet malts to back. Flavour of piney hops, grapefruits and other more subtle tropical fruits, and earthy caramel malts - bitter dry piney hops on the finish. Quite solid though nothing distinguishable about this that makes it a standout.

DruncanVeasey (7318) - NUNEATON, CONF N, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - NOV 1, 2010
12oz bottle. Orange liqueur, melon and tinned peach aroma with plenty of alcohol, and hints of wine gums, Darjeeling and honey. Dusty copper with a slender magnolia head. Slick, slightly hot and grapefruity with a streak of softer, tropical Fruit Salad hop and leafy Darjeeling. Honeyed, floral..but somewhat booze-laden and charmless, without the brilliant hop freshness of some of the paler, lower ABV US beers I’ve had this week.

DrSilverworm (7223) - 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.

Ughsmash (7203) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 21, 2010
Bottled. Poured translucent medium orange with a towering cap of sticky white head. The aroma picked up fresh grass and piney hoppage over a soft pale and honey base.. straightforward and well presented. The flavor found lighter fruits and honey at the core, with a sharp, and not always enjoyable blend of assertive grassy, floral, and peppery bitterness around.. alcohol amplified and was a little raw at the end.. not as clean as the nose. Medium-bodied and a touch thick on the palate.. some very good components in here, but it didn’t come together all that well.

Ibrew2or3 (7158) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - NOV 27, 2009
Courtesy of douglas88. Pours copper with faint haze, off white head and some dandy sheet lacing. The aroma begins with a touch of grapefruit and then quickly slides into pine and then nearly tree sap with a sense of malt sweetness in the background. The taste begins with a short sweet malt pulse becoming citrus with grapefruit as well as growing pine hop bitterness. To midway and toward the finish both the grapefruit and pine like hop bitterness come to a zenith and then slide down to the finish leaving grapefruit and tangelo hop flavor with a bit of pine bitter hop zing hanging around deep into the after taste. Solid DIPA delivering an abundance of bitterness and some hop flavor, cheers!

deyholla (7156) - 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.

DuffMan (7139) - 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.
