On draft, Golden Crust, Red Lion, PA. served in a snifter glass. Pours orange gold, two finger off white head. Nice lacing and retention. Aroma of grapefruit and tangerine. Taste is assertively bitter balanced with caramel sweetness. Medium bodied, lively carbonation, resin but smooth mouth feel. Finishes long, dry and bitter. Tasting notes of red grapefruit, tangelos, spruce, caramel, resin and orange peel. Wow, I really enjoyed this offering! Very nice, punchy DIPA.

Pours an almost clear colour with a white one finger foam. Noses pretty malty.. Sadly. This is a few months old but that is the reality of buying us ipas in Europe, they are rarely fresh and that is a real shame. And we landed on the Moon and shit. Tastes pretty malty too. Seems like any dankness or hoppy fruityness has just disappeared. Might not be a fair rating but what can you do?

VikingHammer (506) - Lynnfield, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 13, 2007
Pours a murky orange brown with a huge off-white head. Big grassy hop aroma. Flavor of citrus and pepper fill the mouth. Starts with the perfect amount of bitterness and end slightly malty. Dry finish. Alesmith does it again.

Kestral (506) - rnes, NORWAY - AUG 10, 2010
Bottle from wavers1, thanks a lot! Pours a clear, golden orange with loads of bubbles rising to the massive fluffy white head. The aroma isnt too subdued by the thick layer of suds. It is very floral, citrusy, a little bit of alcohol in there, which comes off as a bit raw. Some sweet, juicy fruitiness in there, tropical fruits. I have a bit of a hard time pinning down the sweetness in here. Fruity, but perhaps a bit candy-like too, or wine gum. The sip is pretty much like you would expect at this point. Short fruity sweetness before massive citric and floral hops cleanse the palate. Bittersweet semidry finish with a moderate alcohol sting and warmth. Body is medium to light, carbonation is pretty mellow and smooth. Overall, its a good drink. I would prefer the alcohol to be hidden a bit more, and maybe its not completely fresh anymore, but i found their regular IPA to be better by a big margin.

UPDATED: AUG 16, 2013 Lots of pine, some citrus. Notes of peach, maybe pineapple? Tropical fruit of some sort. Very hop-forward. Very good. Been looking for this for about two years, I finally found it at some place in Philadelphia that sells bottles and seems to be a bar as well. And the Eagles were losing the preseason game too. As a lifelong Giants fan, I hate the Eagles. That just makes this beer even better.

This has the expected strong resin, pine and spruce flavors, with just a little citrus (not sweet or juicy though). Well-balanced by bready, toasty malts. Drinkable for a very high IBU brew. Its good, but hard to distinguish from other good DIPAs. In fairness, my bottle was ~6 months old, so a fresh bottle might be even better.

SHANER4 (492) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 24, 2014
Bottle-poured golden color with huge white head. Aroma-WOW!!, fresh piney hops, its xmas in july! Taste is sweet and spicey. Has lemony/pine up front with excellent sweet malt on palate with mildly biiter finish. Mouthfeel is perfect, smooth with nice carbonation. Overall an excellent beer. Reminds me more of a regular ipa and not a double. Not sure ibus but cant be over 100.

mspindler (489) - Alta Loma, California, USA - JUL 20, 2009
Bottle purchased with dinner at Stone Sour Fest 09. Pours a cloudy golden color with a large frothy white head that laces nicely. Aroma is a super fresh hop attack of mostly pine then citrus. Flavor is equally as huge and fresh. Tons of grapefruit, pine, and ridiculously bitter. A slightly sweet malt background with some fresh fruits and bread. Perfect medium to full palate with moderate carbonation. I weep thinking about it.

650ml bottle enjoyed @ my vacation apartment. Pours cloudy pale golden with a large white head. Aroma is citrus, tropical fruits, pine and grapefruit. Flavour is bittersweet. Full bodied, sticky texture, average carbonation. Finish is citrus. Very refreshing.
