On cask at RR. Wonderful hop aroma, fruity and floral. Solid malt balance, but an abundance.of hops for an english ipa. I think this is wonderful.

Clear golden pour, pretty frothy head. Nose of grapefruit, grass, floral petals. The flavor brings more grass and a pleasant nectar fruit that mixes with the bitter finish very nicely. Extremely well done.

Changed (460) - Ithaca, New York, USA - NOV 22, 2011
Pint @ Max’s Baltimore. Appearance is more like a pilsner than DIPA. Aroma is amazing skunky hops. Flavor is similarly skunky. Lacing is white as is the foamy head. Alcohol is well hidden-- a really great beer, thanks to Max’s!

stobbe74 (3789) - DENMARK - NOV 21, 2011
Sample at Borefts Beer Festival 2011. Pours a hazy and golden beer with an offwhite head. The aroma is malt and hops with citrus and grapefruit. The flavor follows the nose. The palate is bitterness. Overall a good beer.

tastybeer (1853) - Indiana, USA - NOV 21, 2011
Draft. Pours gold with a big white head, good retention/lace. Aroma is big grassy/catty noble hops, lemon, pine, biscuit. Taste is very catty/grassy hops, biscuit. Palate is oily, average carbonation, bitter grassy finish. If you wanted to know what a DIPA with English hops would be like, this is it.

GT2 (9411) - Oceanside, California, USA - NOV 21, 2011
Tap at Churchkey. Pours a clear yellow with a huge, white head leaving excellent webby white lace everywhere. Nose is fresh mango and tropical aromatic hops. Mild butterscotch. Yum. Taste is clean, biscuity, crackery pilsner malt, lemon, stinging grassy bitterness. No diacetyl. Very well made. No specialty malt stickiness.

GypsyHead (33) - California, USA - NOV 16, 2011
Very floral and quite good. Light bodied without losing flavor or appropriate mouthfeel. Bold hop bitterness quickly subsides into a brief English biscuit character then returns to deliciously balanced hop flavor.

johnnnniee (3483) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 11, 2011
On cask at Nerax North Pours a light clear golden color with a thinnish white head that actually shows some retention. Smells of hops, yeah! Fruity bready honey malts back us up, but this one is firmly rooted in the hop camp. Taste is barely bready and sweet with fruity citrus and earthy hop flavors all screaming for attention. 7.7% abv is nowhere to be found. Medium body and level of carbonation with a slick resinous mouthfeel. This might be my favorite beer from the fest, or maybe it isn’t, but its certainly in the running.

Smell fruits, hops, light to moderately bitter. Soft carbo, medium body.
