Wittales (623) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - NOV 18, 2012
Appearance was clear orangish gold with creamy off white diminishing 1 finger head, rings of lace. Aromas are citrus fruits, spice, sweet malts with hints of candi sugar. Taste was lemon, grapefruit, slight pine, orange and hints of berry, no alcohol present. Palate was smooth soft creamy CO2 with meduim-full body, then smooth balanced bitter fruity lasting finish. A great local DIPA@ the Creek...

On tap at C4 Deli in Santa Ana. Murky tangerine with a fluffy white head. Spicy, slightly catty hop bitterness hits hard but is tamed somewhat by a good caramel sweetness. This is the creamiest IPA Iíve ever had! Leaves a strong, delicious bitter taste behind. Very drinkable DIPA.

Poursa a copper orange with a two finger off white head with nice lacing. Aroma is of sweet malts, caramel, citrus, subdued pine, and some toasted malts. Taste is pretty similar to the aroma with some additional hops and some herbal and grassy hop notes, backed up by a pretty nice malt backbone. Has a medium body with a semi creamy mouthfeel and a moderately bitter, slightly dry, medium-long finish. Overall, a decently tasty DIPA that is pretty well balanced and pretty drinkable for a 8.5 abv beer.

A great imperial IPA. Thanks kathouse for this beauty. Pours a stunning hazy peach color with nice soft white head. Aromas are floral and citrus. Nice creamy mouthfeel. Solid malt backbone.. With a nice balanced hop flavor. Fantastic beer.

Hazy orange amber with small creamy head. Hops prevail throughout, some floral notes as well, lingering bitter finish. Nice malt profile sits underneath.

Iím drinking this and I finally noticed that I didnít have any real notice of what I was drinking - a sure sign of a less than average brew. I already know this is two in a row in the lame category for iipaís from Teneya (that IPA was killer tho). Come ooooonnnn buffalo. Cloudy orange amber with a skiff and good lacing. You know - an uninspiring IPA almost pisses me off - what the fuck is the point?? Nose: creamsicle, cotton candy - both without being overly sweet, weak caramel, weaker candy canes. That was a serious struggle to find that stuff - how warm do I gotta let this go? Taste is lacking. This jockey game is a horrific watch. Near to medium bodied but only when warm. Some fruit, heat minus the alcohol, gf of some sort, oily, nonsweet caramel. Not bad but this is so forgettable. Easily worse than the one before this. Pretty much a pointless purchase.

Bomber at a hotel in Phoenix. Sediment on the bottom. Pale color with light foam. Smells were subdued but there. Taste was malty hops.

Bottle - Resin and pine with a caramel bready backbone. Pale clear copper with a bubbly white head. Bitter, nutty, earthy and resinous with a bit of pine. The resin and earthy qualities is all you really get.

Masterkush7 (501) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 11, 2014
Pours deep gold/orange, light haze. Big white head, lots of lace. Nose has pine, herbs. Taste has pine, earth, bit of malt sweeetness below. Hoppy finish with big pine and earthy hops, bit of citrus rind, a bit of alcohol heat and medium level bitterness. Pretty smooth mouthfeel. A good brew, a little different from most double IPAs, which is nice.

22oz bomber into a round topped base pale ale glass from BJs in vegas, sanmpled in Vegas. Def not the dipa i was expecting, pours more like a full bodied orange pale ale, with fire and amber waves as the background. Taste is orange, sweet, fruity, not as hop dominant as i would have hoped. The abv is lingering in the background nicely, 8.5 is not really a factor. Aroma is spicy orange, then sweet malts, then hops flare around. Drinks more like a strong ale/belgian in my opinion, and thats whats this is for. Full bodied and drinkable in the fact that the orange dominantes and is fun. This is all cushioned by the whole hops that omit pine resin, and cedar. A fun contrast on the typicaly dipa im use to.
