Cloudy dark amber beer, good pale cream coloured head. Palate is a great carbonation of soft and smooth but with good fine carbonation providing a nip. Lovely bittersweet pine hops, trace of mint. Underneath is good creamy malt with a touch of caramel. Finishes creamy soft with more piney hops, mostly sweet this time. Touch of fresh orange. Slight aniseed. Well joined up and super drinkable DIPA.
Draft at the brewery taproom - Temecula. Pours mostly clear, rich gold with a foamy, white head. This is a big beer. A bit boozy with notes of ripe citrus, sticky pine and sweet bread. Full bodied with fine carbonation. Warming finish with mild grassy bitterness and further sugary bread. Heavy. fiulijn (21511) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 22, 2014

Hazy amber color. The caramel dominates, yet it’s lean, and then the powerful and resiny hopping happens; long final.
22 oz. bottle, courtesy of manuchampions (thanks Jon), pours a hazy dark orange with a medium white head. Aroma is rich on piney and resinous hops, and a bit caramel malt backbone, like many others. Flavour is medium-hoppy for a west coast IIPA, with lots of resinous hops, a whopping caramel malt backbone, making the palate quite chewy for a IIPA. Finishes quite astringent and very malty. Fairly well-balanced, but not so complex or with a high drinkability, as with the maltiness gets a bit overbearing. Solid, but unspectacular IIPA. jtclockwork (17634) - , New Jersey, USA - OCT 24, 2012

Clear amber pour with a white head. Nose is sweet sugar and caramel with a bit of fruit, some citrus peel, and a light pine note. A hint of butter, some grass, and a hint of alcohol. The flavor is on the boozy side with a fair amount of bitterness. Lots of sugar, caramel, and citrus peel. A hint of herbs and sweet fruit on the finish. bhensonb (15967) - Woodland, California, USA - NOV 11, 2012
Bomber from Bine & Vine. Pours hazy copper with a foamy off-white head. Citrus/pine aroma over a little roast caramel. Med + body. Flavor is citrus/pine/caramel. Finishes that with a bit of added floral. It’s pretty tasty stuff. BeerandBlues2 (14018) - Escondido, California, USA - JAN 2, 2016

Medium body and carbonation. slowrunner77 (13205) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 12, 2016
Orange pour. Big sticky beer with a pine and pitted fruit nose and flavor. Lots of bread and caramel malts, too. Not quite into Barleywine territory, but big thick and boozy. marcus (10867) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAR 31, 2013
Bottle shared by beerboxer. Pours reddish copper with a short beige head and a fruity aroma. There is a hearty caramel malt flavor with some serious hop bitterness.
