DeliveryDriver (170) - Illinois, USA - MAY 26, 2013
Golden pour with a finger length head that lingered. Strong grapefruit and citrus aromas, and light piney notes. Bitter all the way down, hardly any malt backbone. Long, bitter aftertaste. This is just a hop bomb, but I’m a hop head.

SotallyTober (40) - 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 (89) - 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 (8135) - 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.

Bottle.

neongolden (555) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 21, 2014
(On tap at Mikkeller Bar Stockholm, Nov 16 2014) Pours a lightly hazy dark orange, slightly brownish hints, white moderate head that leaves lots of lace. Aroma of mango, citrus peel, resiny pine, a touch floral, lots of sweetish bready caramel malt in support of a big hop core, Munich maybe? Flavour has pineapple, stone fruit, citrus peel, flowers and lots and lots of hop resin. This leafy hop cone flavour persists in a sticky finish, but there is a nice big caramel and light rye bread type malt core to hold all the hops. Ends quite dry with a big astringent bitterness and a bit of alcohol heat. Medium full, sticky beer with fairly light but prickly carb. Really balls-out sort of bitter resinous DIPA but with lots of fruit and malt to keep it pretty reasonably balanced nonetheless. Really easy to drink and quite tasty, booze quite in check, only the scalded palate reminding you not to get carried away...

baraciisch (2009) - California, USA - NOV 20, 2014
Apricot orange in color.... Aroma of tropical fruits, mango, peach.... Flavor is bursting of peach, apricot, and tropical fruits, notes of caramel malts, but dominated by fruity bitterness... Dry pine and citrus hops on palate... Superbly good ipa ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
