arminjewell (9426) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - SEP 17, 2010
Pours red with nice white head, aroma is some citrus, with notes of tangerine and orange, some caramel as well. Taste is citrus, touch of metallic hops, caramel, with a fairly bitter finish. Not bad, but a bit weak and disappointing. Alcohol is hidden well.

cbfobes (2881) - Quad Cities, Illinois, USA - SEP 9, 2010
Poured from 12oz bottle and had this on tap at Ale Asylum, pours a reddish orange color with a fluffy whtie head, aroma is of grapefruit with hops and sweet malt, the first sip is way more malty than hoppy and there is not a lot of bitterness in this brew, decent DIPA just not what I was expecting from Ale Asylum.

CanIHave4Beers (4153) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - AUG 30, 2010
Pours an orange color with a good head and good lace. The aroma is pine and resin with some sweet florals. The flavor has a bit of onion and pine with some fruit and plenty of bitterness. There is a mild sweetness there in the finish with is pleasant at first, but I could do with out it.

thegreenrooster (4183) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - AUG 28, 2010
Pour is a hazy orange with a small white head. Aroma is a very nice floral hop with big dose of sweet malt. Flavor is more hops with a fruit like mango hagning around in the backround. Finish is very dry with a decent hop left on the tounge after the swallow. This is a good beer to have around.

Sweet bonus courtesy of drewbeerme. 12oz bottle pours dirty copper brown with light tan head. The mild aroma lofts up soft notes of sweet malts and echoes of pine hops. The taste begins with an even mix of maltiness, crystal like malts and pine hops. The pine hops become richer and more bitter to midway and seem to gather up a brief note of citrus too. Into the finish the tasty pine hops persist with a background of malts and a touch of crystal malts and roasted malts. The more I drink the more it grows on me. Nearing the end I think Im getting a bit of floral hops, grassiness and a touch of spicy hops that pop up about midway.

tmoreau (4002) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - AUG 17, 2010
On tap at the brewpub, and served to a shaker!! with a coppery amber hue, modest, off white head foam, but thick ribbons and spots of lasting lacing. The aroma was sweet, perfumey citrus, smooth malt, and a little resiny pine toward the back. The flavor added full hop bitterness and good balancing malt, with light caramel and sweetness. Clean and very flavorful!

8/14/10. 12oz bottle courtesy cbfobes! Pours a dark cloudy orange, almost red, with a small fluffy off-white head that fades to a ring. The aroma is citrus and floral with a caramel backing, like oranges and lemons rolling around in a flower shop and drizzled in candy. The flavor is immediately sweet with big floral and citrus hop backed again by sweet malts - a surprising lack of bitterness.

Wheatyweiss (29) - Wisconsin, USA - AUG 13, 2010
Poured from a twelve ounce bottle into a perfect. Pours a light auburn into copper with a smallish cloud. Decent sized tightly formed head recedes slowly and laces well. A good thing given the head killing ABV. Aroma is citrus hops on the front with a sweet malt backing. Middle brings bready, sweet malt. Malt aroma is of sweet bread, lemon poppy seed muffins. Finishes with tropical fruit hops and a light alcohol whiff. Flavor opens with citrus hops. Hops are bitter, but with an earthy pineapple and sour citrus rider. Hops bring bitterness in the middle. Middle yields very slightly to malt, bready and sweet with a dark fruit bread flavor, figs and dates mixed into sweet bread.Malt also gives a unique earthiness the like of Ive only tasted in Scotch Ales. Finishes citric and bitter from the hops. Hop bitterness cleanses the palate and dries out the sweet malt. Slight amount of alcohol on the exhale. Mouthfeel is creamy and carbonation is very well done. Slightly thick from the malt bill, finishes sticky on the lips, but not cloyingly so. Very much a sipper, but easy to drink too fast. The hop bomb that was Ballistic was a completely different beer and I feel that the brewers did very well given the grain bill on this one. Reviewed 07/19/2010
