thedm (5881) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - NOV 15, 2012
This bottled brew from a rating party poured a small sized head of foamy white colored bubbles that were and left behind a softly carbonated hazy orange colored body and a good lacing. The aroma was musty and malt hop. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The mild flavor contained notes of citrus hops and malt. A decent one that I would consider drinking again.

AgentAle (1560) - Alberta, CANADA - NOV 29, 2016
Aroma is citrus, lemon grass, grapefruit and tart. Taste is sweet malts, caramel, honey and light toasted bread. The hop profile is fairly potent with citrus amd lemongrass but not overwhelming. Appearance is a hazy gold with a fluffy medium head that retains quite well.

Dogbrick (11851) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 29, 2016
Sample at GABF 10/08/2016, thanks to my sis for assistance with note-taking. Hazy golden color with a medium white head that burns away gradually. Strings of lacing. Aroma of piney hops, fruit and malt. Medium body with flavors of resiny hops, grapefruit and malt. The finish is moderately bitter with a piney hop aftertaste. Above average overall.

ljthiessen (1166) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - SEP 11, 2016
Bottle. Cloudy golden amber pour with a thick off-white head. Some pine, resinous notes, along with a bit of tropical fruit. Pretty simple, decently balanced, overall quite drinkable but pretty average DIPA.

weordie (947) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - SEP 8, 2016
Pours copper with a good, foamy head. Aroma has a little pine but loads of sweet malt, sickly sweet smelling though. Taste is the same, too sickly sweet with just a hint of bitterness. Not great but OK

On draft. Since this was on nitro the IPA was incredibly smooth. It drank more like a light pale ale than a 8% double IPA. Had a nice balance of hops to malt. Would totally drink this again.

northropfrye (3326) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - SEP 5, 2016
Amber body off white head. Pine aroma. Semi bitter not too but complex but not a bad double IPA

DanielBrown (4393) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUL 15, 2016
UPDATED: JUL 23, 2016 Can from Clink Beer, Birmingham. Bright yellow colour. Smells a bit like a loose, baggy US wheat beer. Acrid paper. Hops are flabby, orange jelly, paddling pool. Boozy, without being super tasty. Ok.

oh6gdx (25552) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUN 19, 2016
Canned. (thanks MT). Goldeny orange colour with a small white head. Aroma is fruity, floral, resiny some mild spruce and wood to it along with some sweet malts. Flavour is fruity and floral, rather bitter with some slight bready malts, toffee and mild ryelike notes. Hides the alcohol well.

MelvinKalksma (1098) - UTRECHT, NETHERLANDS - JUN 9, 2016

Aroma:
Medium/heavy aroma of malts, caramel, orange, pine, hops and citrus.

Appearance:
Turbid/opaque yellow/golden beer with a slight/medium off-white head.

Taste/Palate:
Starts medium sweet with malts, caramel, orange and pine; ends slightly bitter and medium dry with hops and citrus.

Overall:
This beer is rather intense, complex and balanced. The aroma is intense and inviting, while the flavour is less intense. Thanks to the the bitter and dry finish, the flavour is more complex and has a nice balance.
