boydmarq (48) - Bloomington, Illinois, USA - JUN 9, 2012
Subtle aroma masks an intensely hoppy taste. Pours dark gold with tan head. Grapefruity and bready. Good, but not great

ChiGuy68 (411) - Illinois, USA - SEP 5, 2014
Tasted from a 12oz. bottle. It poured a hazy orangish hue with a frothy light orange head and minimal, streaky lacing. Aroma of hops and yeast with hints of citrus & grass. Heavy taste of hops that is well balanced with malt and alcohol. While this delicious Double IPA brings it with 9.9%abv, it is still incredibly drinkable and welcoming.

jcartamdg (1984) - Spring Hill, Florida, USA - SEP 1, 2014
Pours a translucent copper with a thick white head. Aroma of bitter pine, sweet caramel malt and alcohol. Taste is sweet and malty, bitter pine and citrus. Fairly balanced but a bit too much of a malt presence for my liking.

Frozer (118) - Illinois, USA - AUG 30, 2014
Yellow amber aroma, little head with slight lacing. Spicy hop aroma. Hoppy crisp flavor with a small amount of carbonation. Slick and resiny.

12 oz. bottle poured. Rich caramel appearance, bitter hop aroma. Strong hop taste with a bitter finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dal9000 (184) - Ohio, USA - AUG 13, 2014
Initial mild spice that is not indicative of hoppy beers. A mild orange spice that is smooth on the tongue. Little aftertaste but a taste of allspice continues. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

TXBadger (1381) - Dallas, Texas, USA - AUG 10, 2014
Pours a slightly hazy darker golden color with off-white head. Pine, citrus, and floral notes on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with just a little bread. Nice DIPA.

kambei70 (597) - - AUG 10, 2014
On tap at El Bait Shop. Pours a bright mahogany/ copper color with an off-white head. Aroma is barleywine-like, maltcentric, slight fruity and sweet. Fruit is tropical and bordering on dark fruits. Taste is definitely hop forward with a a clean, piney taste. Deep caramel malt backbone and the fruit is like the aroma, straddling tropical and dark. Medium body with a dry finish an a little acidic burn. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

adrian910ss (2356) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 31, 2014
12 oz bottle. Pours a deep copper with a medium sized cream colored head. Aroma of tangy malt, orange citrus and hops. Taste of tangy malt, grapefruit, oranges and hops.

BLADT (625) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - JUL 29, 2014
Bottle. Clean, full amber in glass. Aroma of orange, caramel and pine. Rich smelling. Taste has a pronounced malt backbone with some bitter citric hops over top. Sweet throughout, even with the hops pulling the other way. Alright, but not a go to.

I donít rate my beers, but had to bust out one for this gem of a caramel bomb. I take great umbrage with u people rating this crap so high. Nose is of delicious caramels and a bit of orange marmalade. Nice deep copper/amber appearance w a quickly fading head. From there, bollox. Caramel and orange blahhhhhhhh. This is yet another caramel nasty bomb of a dipa. Screw u people who rated this up to a 98. My cat knows to bitter a dipa better than this.
