Voodoo (311) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 15, 2013
Pours a copper color with a dense head. Aroma of citrus rinds. Taste is mild malts, slight simcoe hop profile, a bit of a dough taste then the alcohol hits and tails into mild bitterness. A very plain, dry imperial which could benefit from some complexity in the recipe.

Keg @ Starr Hill. Deep amber with a small head. Nose is strongly resinous. Caramel malt and citrus. Taste is dominated by caramel. Some orange candies. Booze. Nothing refined about this. Medi body, oily. Needs work.

TomDecapolis (4477) - Milton, Delaware, USA - AUG 23, 2014
Pours a lightly hazy amber with a medium bubbly off white head. Aroma of caramel malt, light toasted malt and citrusy hops. Flavor of toasted malt, caramel, pine and grapefruit.

Maverick34 (2248) - New York, USA - AUG 20, 2014
Bottled. Clear orangey brown pour with white head from bottle. Citrus and a bit of malts. PRetty drinkable for a IIPA, not too much booze taste. Pretyy good.

burg326 (3667) - Florida, USA - JUL 27, 2014
Poured an amber color with aromas of malt, light caramel, floral hops and some light pine. Flavors are the same malt forward followed by some pine and light citrus, lightly hopped for a DIPA more malt forward.

HellesBunny666 (185) - Virginia, USA - JUL 26, 2014
Basic citrussy and grassy hops aromas. Really pretty looks, color and a thick foamy head. Way better on tap then bottle. Smooth, caramel, grassy, syrupy, hides the alcohol content.

Cask - Mostly a pine smell on the nose. There is some hops on the palate but mostly a pine taste. It was really hard to get past the pine smell/taste on this beer. I was expecting more of a hop flavor on this DIPA but I didn’t get it. Pine covers the high alcohol content on this one.

Emeister84 (985) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JUN 8, 2014
Aromas of citrusy, piney, and floral hops, some bready malts. Clear amber with burnt copper highlights, and a fully lasting satiny off-white head. Off-dry, some aromatic, floral hop notes, a nice malt cushion. Medium bodied, pretty darn smooth.

First had this 4 years ago when I was beginning my craft beer journey up in the Virginia mountains. Severals years later this still holds up as very solid double ipa. Easy drinking iipa with lots of caramel, floral, medium citrus. Quite balanced if you like that kind of thing.

Aubrey (3432) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - JUN 3, 2014
Tasty beer, but too malt-forward for a double IPA, IMO. That said, it does have some tasty malt flavors of toast, caramel and brown sugar. Hops are grassy, floral and somewhat citrusy. Balanced bitterness. Fruity alcohol. As a "beer" it’s pretty solid. As a "double IPA" it’s way too malty.

Beerathon (1159) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 8, 2014
Starr Hill’s best offering. Look- amber with sticky head. Best way to describe this IPA is "wet". Hops are floral, citrusy, spicy, lovely. Very good.
