5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - OCT 9, 2012
Bottle:   Amberish, fairly clear, light carbonation, moderate white foamy head, fairly sticky lacing.   Sweet candied citrus peel like aroma, hoppy and certainly on the sticky/sweet/citrusy side.   A bit more pithy on the tongue., not as sweet as I thought.   Certainly citrusy, but needs that sweet candied citrus peel I got on the nose.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   While smooth, its not as big as I thought it was going to be.   Smells sweeter, more inviting than it actually is.   Its a hoppy side of the coin, unlike what I prefer which tends to be the malty side (nearing Barley Wine category).   Still a great IIPA, just could use some touches to further impress me.   Thanks for the bottle Bill!

Desverger (10887) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 6, 2017
[email protected] Bar, Malm - Amber pour with white head. Sweet fruity and malty aroma and taste, solid sweet caramel malty base, some tropical fruity hits punching through, solid hoppy bitter finish. Lovely old skool dipa.

agent_persik (731) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 27, 2017
Dark amber color, big beige head. Aroma of caramel, citrus, toffee, honey, piney and spicy hops. Sweet bitter taste with nice hoppy bitter finish and a bit dry aftertaste. Medium body and average carbonation. Very nice double IPA.

Lore (2626) - Budapest, HUNGARY - APR 8, 2017
almost clear dark orange to amber colour, large, creamy off-white head; aroma of pine resin, grapefruit, orange zest oils, lemongrass, celery and biscuit; taste of devastating hoppy bitterness with resiny and grapefruity notes, slight celery as well as biscuity-malty and honey sweetness - really schizophrenic! I love it!

LLaurin (457) - Motala, SWEDEN - APR 1, 2017
Nice hazy look with lots of hops and some strength in nose and taste. Palate is longlasting and also with hoppy bitterness.

ciocanelu (2235) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - MAR 29, 2017
Clear orange color with off-white head. Aroma is really malty with some biscuits and candied orange notes. Taste starts bitter upfront with some sweet malt in the background. The hops are mostly orange and pine forward. Medium to light body, medium carbonation. Overall its a decent west coast, really classic DIPA.

stantheman (1016) - British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 18, 2017
On tap at St Augustines in Vancouver. A medium amber beer with faint hop and malt nose. Slightly sweet, moderately hopped, some background malts. Not to my mind a great beer, but a very nice one, and the niceness is in the delicate balance of hops and malts. 3.7

jandorris (646) - Warsaw, POLAND - MAR 18, 2017
Piana bardzo ładna, piwo o złocistej barwie, klarowne. W zapachu żywiczno ziołowe. To samo w smaku, poza tym trochę karmeli. Alkohol schowany pięknie.

migwell (358) - Northampton, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 7, 2017
Bottle to tulip. Good aroma of grapefruit and hops, very nice initial taste of citrus, malt, fruit, hops and alcohol. Unfortunately this is followed by a burst of lingering dry mouth bitterness, which seems common to many left-coasters. But for that, it is a well made brew that I will avoid in future.

martjoobolut (4090) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 6, 2017
Bottle, bb in the bottom is not decipharable (from beergium). Pours amber with whiteish head. The head stays. Aroma is sweet, spicy, caramelly, citrusy. Flavor is sweet and bitter, citrus, oranges, pine, caramel. Finish is pine bitter with some noticeable booze. Body is on the thinner side. Overall: I quite like it.
Whats with americans and BB-s?! You can print some crap under the bottle, but not readable bottling date or BB?! Point removed from the overall.
