Pours with a nice cloudy orange color with a nice head. Nice fruity taste at first, with a nice strong hoppy taste, finish citrus and bitter. A very nice beer. Had it from a bottle.

SotallyTober (72) - Channahon, Illinois, USA - DEC 21, 2014
Pours a cloudy golden orange with thick off white head, that left decent lacing. There’s a tropical fruit, pine, and a resinous aroma. Started out sweet that ended mildly bitter. Flavor’s of citrus, mango, grapefruit, pine, resin, and caramel. Medium body that was oily and chewy on the palate.

Bottle. Pours cloudy bright orange. Quickly disappearing head. Nose is sweet grapefruit and citrus. Lots of hops. Taste is thick. Sweet with then lots of hop bitterness. Numbs your tongue. Lasting bitterness. Delicious!

Keg at CBC2012, from some old notes. Rich amber, white head. Powerful resinous aroma, bit of tropical fruit and mango. Big mouthfeel despite medium carb. Flavour is big sweet toffee then huge fruit punch, tropical mango flavour, then big candied tropical fruit finish and big bitterness.

Mindwarp (119) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 28, 2014
Pours a light golden opaque yellow with a big white head and plenty of lacing on glass. Full citrus aroma. Taste, malts with hints of citrus and resin. Overall a good IPA that I would drink again.

MartinT (8351) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 28, 2014
My Bottom Line:
This powerfully leafy and resinous Double IPA also develops oranges and grapefruit for a simple but massively hoppy experience.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A dollop of foam stays atop the hazy pale amber.
-The lightly biscuity malts are only there to support the hop onslaught.
-This is not as refined a product as their Dreadnaught, for example.
-Residual sugars are relatively low, which I appreciate.
-The mouthfeel doesn’t appear to be force-carbed, which is great. And drinkability is high despite the high alcohol level.
-The sugary citrus fruit are quite prominent in the finish, alongside the salient bitterness.
