COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Has intense hop bitterness, flavor, and aroma. Alcohol content is very high and notably evident. Though the hop character is intense, it is balanced with complex alcohol flavors and malt character.

Scopey (5511) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 4, 2012
Tap at Titanic. It pours cloudy orange-amber, with a thick off-white head. The nose is brown bread, a touch of orange and earth. The taste is resin, pine, orange citrus fruit, brown bread, some underlying caramel sweetness, leather, leaf, spice, metal and alcohol warmth, with a bitter finish. Medium body, moderate carbonation and foamy mouth-feel. Itís quite hot and rough around the edges. So-so.

Itís hoppy and full of flavor. This double IPA succeeds in some ways, but ultimately it just isnít bitter and dry enough for an IPA. It doesnít have all the characteristics I expect.

markwise (4306) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - MAR 7, 2011
On draft at Titanic. Pours hazy copper with a white head. Nose is caramel, sugar, and a citrus hop burst- orange, grapefruit, and apricot. Flavor is similar with lots of citrus, some booze, and a syrupy mouthfeel. Medium-bodied and enjoyable. Booze is mostly hidden, but it is interesting that patrons are limited to one glass of this (per the menu).

Ibrew2or3 (6521) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAR 1, 2011
Poured up on tap at the Titanic brewpub with clear deep copper body and off white head. The aroma is pine and a bit of tropical mango like notes as well as earthy and spicy hops. The taste has a pretty good IIPA body pushing up pleasing levels of pine hops and spicy hops and then running the resiny bitter notes up to near yummy and chewy levels.

MeadMe (1243) - Riverview, Florida, USA - DEC 20, 2009
A: Poured a nice golden hue with a nice foamy head. The head hung around nicely, and left sheets of lace. S: Nice big floral aroma. Tons of citrus with a touch of cut grass. There was a sweetness underlying that made this extra nice. T: Wow big on flavor. Tons and I mean tons of grapefruit taste. There was a nice malty sweet backbone that held this beer together nicely. It finished with a little bite from the hops. M: Nice and thick like maple syrup.

Skyview (5109) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - SEP 8, 2009
On draught at the brewpub in Coral Gables, FL. Pours a semi-hazy amber colored brew with a thick off-white head that sticks around. Aroma of light tangerine, grapefruit, some grassy hops and a hint of caramel malt. Taste is medium bodied, fruity and citrusy with some character of tangerine and orange peel. Finish is semi-sweet, lingering sweet bitterness and leaves the mouth with a film/soapy texture.

Sammy (8094) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 20, 2009
Enjoyed on tap at the brewpub. My ratings on DIPAs are aboe average because Iíve had so many fresh. No exception here. Deep golden with brown highlights. Lots of lace. No exceptional aroma, but hey a disinfected bleached glass. Good full hop dose.

daknole (8537) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JAN 25, 2009
Poured at the Jupiter brewfest. Nice beer. Big fluffy head gives way to a multitude of hop aromas...earthy, citrus, floral. Beer has a nice mouthfeel and is full of citrus notes wtih some good malt balance. I really enjoyed this. Matt is making some damn good beers.

Beershine (5195) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - AUG 6, 2008
Rockiest head ever seen on a beer: a thick whack of foam like scoops of ice cream on top of an orange cloud. Gorgeous looks. Leafy, grassy, earthy, slightly floral potent hop aroma. Excellent quaffability and fruitiness and is not at all sticky! Unusual fruit bouquet begs thought: there is no mango but there is spice. A great IPA that is not at all derivative. Must drink this one fresh--sampled a few weeks later and it was unfortunately off the mark.

UPDATED: FEB 12, 2009 Re-rate: A couple of revisits have proved disappointing. Diacetyl is overabundant in this beer, and the hops on my Feb/09 sample were nowhere near as rich and bold as last summer. I am downgrading this beer until the diacetyl problem is dealt with. It affects appearance, mouthfeel, aroma and palate.

Insane head - thick and mountainous with whipped cream topping. Iíve never seen anything quite like it. Orval would be embarrassed by this austentatious head. Opaque golden-bronze. Absolutely gorgeous. Lovely orangey, piney, kumquat and lime aroma. Fresh and clean. Smells like I should be fishing for marlin. Chewy, sticky malts. Rich, woody, resiny hops. Nice balance. Altogether quite tasty, despite a little bit of diacetyl in the finish. (overall 4.0)
