From the 16.9 fl. oz. bottle. The pour is medium amber with a modest off-white head and a cloudy appearance. The aroma is quite pungent and powerful with its floral and perfumed hops. Also a nice noted of roasted malts buried beneath the hopped up sensations. Medium body. The taste is extraordinarily bitter with floral hops coating every inch of my tongue and inner mouth. You like hops? You got ’em.

Bottle. Rating #7,100. Thanks to Jcwattsrugger for the bottle. Pours orange gold with white head. Nose/taste of grass, seaweed, toast, florals, dank orange peel, caramel malt and earthy old citrus. Medium body.

Drake (8981) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - MAR 24, 2014
Half liter bottle courtesy of jcwattsrugger. Thanks! Pours a hazy burnished bronze color with a medium sized dense creamy tan head. Good head retention. Citrus and tropical notes are wafting over from the glass a few feet away. Further aroma notes are toffee and a bit of resin. The taste is toffee malts with a bitter citrus and pine hop finish. A little bi-polar as the sweetness lingers a bit before the bitterness kicks in. Medium bodied, lingering bitterness.

jimhilt (2429) - Bow, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 14, 2014
Pours a cream, three-finger head that fades very slowly leaving a good lace. Murky amber color. Good carbonation and medium bodied. Hoppy clove nose, flavor some grapefruit hops with hints of caramel. Lingering bitterness. Pricey at $7.75 for a 500ml bottle from Bert’s Better Beers Hooksett NH. Bottled 1/4/2014.

MaBeer1972 (1368) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 10, 2014
Bottle from Chase Street Mkt. Pours out a very murky brownish-amber with a thin white head. Aroma of sweet burnt rubber. Flavor is bitter and rubbery, with some sweet smoke. Bit too much of a mess.

Phatdog1 (179) - Brentwood, New Hampshire, USA - DEC 22, 2013
Poured from growler into perfect pint glass. Slightly hazy amber pour with little to no head, even after an aggressive pour. Aroma is all sticky sweet hop resin and pineapple. Flavor starts out on the sweet side of the hops and then finishes with a big, pine resiny bite. Not harsh, but a slightly rough finish. A pretty thick hop slurry on the tongue. Tasty local DIPA!

UPDATED: DEC 4, 2013 16.9oz bottle-shaving cream lt tan-hazy gold. A-spice-mint [aspirin] /herbal, lt/med malt. T-harsh pine [iodine/aspirin] hop bite, med malt-toasty with a touch of sweetness trying to creep out from the harsh. Would like to try this again.

WillRunForBeer (855) - Massachusetts, USA - OCT 12, 2013
Taster at the source. Pours orange brown with lots if offwhite head that lingers. Pineapple and citrus in the nose. Starts sweet, then gives way to citrus, then pine hop. A decent DIPA.

BroSpud (1740) - , Massachusetts, USA - OCT 1, 2013
16.9oz bottle. Pours a medium reddish brown with a white head. Big hop aroma. Flavor is more malty than most DIPAs. A bit sweeter than I usually like but the huge hop content balances it out somewhat. Overall a really good brew from a brewery that I’m really liking so far after tasting several of their brews recently. Hopefully these guys (or actually gals as I understand) will keep growing and keep making these great beers.

16 oz. bottle from The Beer Store. Poured into an oversized snifter. Pours a muddled amber/orange with a fingers worth of beige head. Good retention and lace. Smells of pine resin, fruit and cake, yes cake with vanilla frosting. Taste is initially quite sweet with a good caramel malt base and touches of vanilla. Bitterness makes itself known soon enough. Palate is full and rich with a bitter, acidic aftertaste. Well done ladies. Very nice.
