Birdiebeagle (958) - Perkasie, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 8, 2006
Bottle Pours a murky amber with a good fizzy off white head. Lasts fairly well and has better than average lacing. The aroma is a wonderful mix of malts and hops. Has good chocolate, carmel malts and nice pine and grapefruit hops. The real pleasure is when it hits your mouth. Has a great carbonation with a medium body. Wonderful flavors for both the malt and hops. An excellent durationand an even better ending, no strong aftertaste but just enough to keep you hoping you dont run out. Finish has the perfect amount of bitterness. This is IMHO the best beer I have had. The great people at Ale Smith must distribute east immediately.

jcr (2647) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - DEC 17, 2016
Bottle. Deep golden/orange body with a frothy, white head. Aroma of resin, grapefruit, toasted grain, alcohol. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and moderately to heavily bitter. Medium to full body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Resin, pine and grapefruit taste with strong sweet malt backbone thats a bit too much.

Bawelt (720) - Lyon, FRANCE - DEC 5, 2016
Pas grand fan de ce genre de DIPA assez malte (moins que dautres en loccurrence) et thylique qui coupe les houblons. Le nez est tres agrumes, noisette et amande, petit fond de fraicheur qui pointe (qui me fait dire que cest dommage). Bouche peu amre. On ressent normment les cts noisettes amandes et des touches dagrumes. Finale tres seche pour du 8.5 plutt amre et agrable, assez aromatique.

Brutal! De color naranja, turbia con una capa de espuma compacta. En nariz ctrica y herbal. En boca recuerdo dulce, luego pino. Resinosa y amarga, bien balanceada por la malta. La malta le da un toque dulce. Alcohol bien integrado aunque se nota. Lastima que no tenga etiqueta con fecha de consumo preferente.

DonGregorio (156) - POLAND - DEC 3, 2016
350ml bottle. Pours unclear orange with medium to large white head - durable, excellent lacing. Aroma of pine, resin, flowers, citrus in background. Taste is light fruity sweet and medium to heavy bitter, at first pine, but also with lots of citrus, tropical fruits, grapefruit, tangerine. Lasting, pleasant bitterness. Medium+ body, oily texture, average carbonation. Very tasty, smooth, hoppy DIPA, but it is probably greater and more aromatic when its fresh.

12 oz bottle last July from Total Wine in Rancho Cucamonga. Good pine and citrus aroma. Pours with a one inch head with great lacing. Mouthfeel is medium-full bodied with a great balance between bitterness and maltiness. Overall a wonderful DIPA. Pliny may have the edge in taste and aroma, but the ease of getting this makes it a stellar stand-in.

mice (886) - FINLAND - DEC 2, 2016
Hazy golden orange beer with big and long lasting head. Aroma has malts, caramel, some citrus. Not very fresh, neither is the taste, which has malts, caramel, soap, pepper and some bitter citrus feeling at the end. Full body, low carbonation, quite sweet with drier and more bitter end. Could be more fresh.

UPDATED: NOV 27, 2016 Color naranja, algo turbio, con capa de espuma blanca de dos dedos de grosor (buena retencin). Carbonatacin media. Aroma: mezcla de frutas y malta, tambin resina. El sabor es exactamente lo que me esperaba: malta y resina (el alcohol se nota y el amargor es mnimo). Ni fu ni fa.
