TAR (2581) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 26, 2010
Blonde-hued apricot. Thin but clingy tiny-bubbled white head. Nauseatingly hoppy nose of pineapple, cantaloupe, peach, canned mandarin oranges, and low-grade orange juice. Potent scents of alcohol. Distant whiff of aspirin, mango, pine needles and dry crackery malt. Snug and creamy caress of carbonation. Initial wave of succulent, citrus-laden hops gives way to an assortment of palate-clenching pine needles and softer dabs of honey-drizzled orange pith. While the hop flavors are relatively bright and explosive, they are largely negated by the intensely resinous and borderline-chalky hop bitterness. Becomes lightly medicinal as the sharp, poorly cloaked alcohol links up with the residual sugars and increasingly brash chalky/resinous hop character. Hop character is also quite sour and biting, resembling uric acid, to a degree. Finishes deceptively dry due to the relentless pine needle barrage, with lingering notes of vanilla cake and resin. Not quite as sloppy as the vast majority of DIPAs out there, but still rather caustic, dirty and one-dimensional, with that said.

GT2 (9411) - Oceanside, California, USA - OCT 26, 2010
22oz. Pours a cloudy, glowing yellow with a decent white head that leaves okay wispy lacing. Aroma is fruity hoppy, slightly less than dank alpha acid hops which my brain perceives as old strawberry desserts like old strawberry shortcake or strawberry cheesecake. Lots of raw kumquat comes through too. Taste is dry, bitter, heavy on the earthy hops and kumquat. Fairly large kick of spicy hops. Little past it’s prime but still pretty good.

Ughsmash (7502) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 25, 2010
Bomber at cellar temp. Poured crystal-clear honeyed golden with a dense cap of white head.. some chunkiness toward the bottom of the bottle. The aroma picked up juicy orange and floral hoppage over sweet honey and pale malts.. alcohol did just what it needed to by amplifying slightly.. warm and welcoming. The flavor found more of the honey and pale malts at the sweet core.. very bitter and warm on the edges, showcasing orange and pine hops plus peppery alcohol.. spicy finish that carried through and warmed the belly. Medium-plus bodied and well balanced on the palate.. very good stuff.

Pawola22 (3262) - Plainfield, Illinois, USA - OCT 25, 2010
22oz bottle. Pours a cloudy orange colored body with a thin, white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing throughout. Aroma is very fresh, bright, and juicy with lots of pineapples, oranges, lemons, and peaches. Mixture of pines and florals making up the hops with some caramel and a touch of bread to balance. Flavor is more bitter and piney, but still sweeter and brighter with plenty of fruits. A good amount of florals with more sugary citruses and peaches. Lots of resin with some lemon-grass, a light spice, and some caramel along with a touch of bread again. Finishes juicy, bright, and sweeter with a medium-high bitterness that dries and leaves a lengthy aftertaste. Medium, smooth body with a soft, light-moderate carbonation. Overall, a very flavorful DIPA. Lots of bright, fresh, juicy, and sweet hops with a solid piney, floral backing. I liked this one.

RCL (2030) - Waltham, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 25, 2010
Monster hop aroma aroma explodes out of the glass - all pine and citrus. Flavor is a pleasant surprise, super hop flavor, massive orange zest, but not scorchingly bitter. Really excellent.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - OCT 24, 2010
Pours a clear bright golden with a wispy white head. Has a fairly fresh resiny grapefruity hop nose with some light pale maltiness underneath. Has good fullness and crisp sweet malty body with lots of grapefruity bittering hops and juicy piny notes before a slightly warming bittersweet resiny finish. A pretty good double IPA, but could be a little fresher.
