Great aroma and color. One of my favorite double ipa. This is worth picking up.

22oz bottle from hrking
Appearance: Pours clear amber with a medium sized off-white head and some lacing
Aroma: Pine resin, caramel and fruity

A nice IIPA, Well balanced, tipping towards the hop side which makes it event better.

hoosiers1994 (684) - Maryland, USA - JAN 9, 2011
22 oz bottle poured into a snifter. Pours a orange/brown color with a tan head that leaves nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is of resin and grass as well as some caramel. The taste is bitter and pine with some citrus. There is a malty backbone to this one, but the hop profile lingers on the bitter finish. The carbonation is average for the medium body beer. Overall, and OK DIPA, but there are many better ones

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - DEC 31, 2010
22oz bottle: Pours a clear deep orange with a clingy-lacing white froth of head. Has a fresh resiny pine and grapefruity nose with a lightly toasted caramel background. Starts with good fullness and light caramel sweetness with lots of juicy piny hop flavor and good bitter balance before a drier, citrusy bittersweet finish. A very nice Imperial IPA.

drpimento (2241) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 28, 2010
Poured with a nice, foamy, frothy, off white head that lasts, and lots of lace. Color is a cloudy medium amber. Aroma is huge hops. Hop bomb. Flavor is mainly hops with malt, caramel, butter, and yeast. Body is good and so is carbonation. Finish is like flavor. Too much for me.

AmEricanbrew (5850) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - DEC 22, 2010
Clear amber color/ lasting ivory head. Soapy, tropical fruit, caramel aromas. Nice caramel, floral, grainy malt flavors, mildly bitter finish.

wedgie9 (1990) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 5, 2010
Tasted from a bomber bottle purchased at Discount Liquor in Milwaukee. Pours hazy orange with just a light tint of red with a thin white head that leaves a thin lace collar. The nose is an interesting sweet that is somewhat reminiscent of some of the different tropical fruits I have had. I can’t say that it is pleasant along with a soapy lemon and some caramel malt. The flavor is pretty intensely bitter with the lemon soapy thing and the caramel malt coming through. The body is medium with average carbonation and a long bitter finish.

Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - NOV 26, 2010
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a mostly clear, orange-gold colored body with an inch thick, dense and creamy, beige head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is medium sweet caramels, florals, and some pines. A bit chewy with some sweet oranges and citrus, a light resin, and a few tropical fruits. Flavor is similar. Sweeter caramels, oranges, florals, some pines, and resiny sugars. A few more tropical fruits and somewhat grainy maltiness before this finishes sweet, resiny, a bit sugary, mostly dry, and moderately bitter. Fairly lengthy aftertaste following a medium, smooth body and light carbonation. Overall, a nice DIPA. Sweeter and resiny oranges with a solid caramel backing. Nothing too interesting, but very enjoyable.

beerbill (3422) - Laurel, New York, USA - NOV 8, 2010
22 oz. bottle courtesy of a trade with pittsburghkid. Pours a hazy golden amber with a moderate linen white head that lingers through the first quarter of the glass and leaves partial lace. Pleasant aroma of caramel, pine and citrus. The flavor is caramel and pine with a lesser amount of fruity citrus. The pine has a nice resinous quality and is not excessively bitter. Medium-full bodied. Solid.

TheBeerOrg (2145) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - NOV 7, 2010
Pours dark golden with a thin wispy tan head. Notes of thick citric resin, bitter hops, harsh, acidic, coarse pine and musk. Full to heavy bodied with lively carbonation.
