One of my favorite dbl IPAs and for an IPA, this feels like a malt monster to me. Definitely big hops going on but a powerful malt backing. Alcohol is definitely apparent but very much a compimenting flavor component. I get orange and grapefruit in the hop notes.

Kinz (3786) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - MAR 5, 2010
Shared with maniac and Butters for maniac’s b-day. Medium amber, nice tan head. Aroma was citric hops with an earthy malt note. Flavor matched, with gummy caramel accented malts and a nicely balanced citrus and slightly herbal hop flavor. Nicely made.

Butters (4059) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - MAR 5, 2010
Shared with Kinz, and maniac for his birthday. Pours a clear reddish amber with good tan head. Nose is deceptively malty, with dark earthy hops. Flavor has a peppery note, that could be alcohol. With a ridiculous sweet, floral, big hop presence. Medium chewy body with moderately low carbonation. Sick label.

Bottle courtesy of Ughsmash. Pours a slightly hazy dark amber brown with mahogany highlights and one finger tan head. Aroma is sweet and floral with notes of citrus, hops, caramel, honey, light floral esters. Flavor is sweet and floral with notes of caramel, honey, citrus, pine, floral hops, floral esters. Generally medium body with a pleasing malty floral hop finish. This one has aged a little while, but still plenty of floral hops to go around.

12oz bottle from Ughsmash...thanks Jason. Pours pretty dark for a DIPA, caramel amber with a bright white head that leaves some loose but sticky lacing. Nose is big on sweet caramel malts, quite ’bready’ and just overtakes any subtle hop notes...really ’sticky’ smelling with just a hint of grassiness. Body is somewhat think, almost syrupy, with a creaminess from the subtle carbonation. Lots of sweet caramel breadiness up front with some candy orange hints, mid palate has some earthy grass notes poking out as well as some sweet floral...the finish has some mellow bittering from hops, but nothing super aggressive by any means. Some alcohol warming on the end as well, maybe a bit much based on coming in at 8.25%. All in all, no big flaws but this is way too much malt for me and hardly any aromatic or flavorful hop character showing through.

kramer (6682) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 1, 2010
12 oz bottle. Pours a clear dark amber body with a one finger fizzy beige head. The nose is dominated by big crystal and caramel malt with very minimal hoppiness. Seriously misses the mark for a DIPA in my book. There’s a bit of resiny hops, but not enough. The bitterness is certainly there in the flavor, so much so that it comes across as harsh and overbearing. Heavy crystal malt lays the base layer for all that bitterness and doesn’t seem to do anything positive. The mouthfeel is heavy and dense with light soft carbonation. Some lingering crystal malt and resiny hops with some noticeable alcohol. This one was a dud for me.

Bottle. Deep amber pour hints of orange. Slightly musty, sweet malts, decent resiny hop aroma. Taste is decent but not huge bitterness, malts are pretty heavy here. Medium bodied. Nice beer

Rating #1700. 12 oz bottle sent to me by my 2009 winter Secret Santa. Pour is a hazed copper brown with a two inch tan head. Head falls slowly with nice lacing. Aroma of resin hops along with some pine notes. Fresh and clean nose. Taste is big resin bitterness, immediately scrapes the tongue. The pine is present in the longish finish. There is also a grassy mineral malt in there too, though the balance is well towards the hops. Like the nose, the taste is fresh and clean. Residual hops are very long lasting. Palate is medium, a bit oily, active carbonation. Nice brightly hoppy beer - thanks Santa.

Bockyhorsey (2628) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - DEC 30, 2009
Bottle. Had a pine and floral aroma with some sweet malt not exactly the crisp aromas of most that light up the nose. Amber body with small off white head. More of a malt backbone and little heavy to drink. Hoppy flavor was there on the finish. Just little thick bodied and didn’t really get the refreshing ahhhhh.
