growler thanks to Matt, now this growler was 2 days old and a beer drank out of it. So I hope my rate doesnt get deleted. Carbonation was still very good and my friend said it tastes the same as at the brewery so I believe it is still ethical to rate.
Great hop flavors, tree house level, great aroma and medium bitterness, sticky mouthfeel. Great stuff, I really gotta head up there sooN! AirForceHops (7796) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - SEP 22, 2013
750 ml growler from the Brewery. Color is hazy gold that is clear around the edges. The nose has a beautiful bouquet of grapefruit, grassy hops, hints of pine and citrus hops. The taste is just as nice and follows the nose almost exactly. Exceedingly well-balanced and still very hoppy. Bitterness lingers without any harshness. Nice citrus and pine balance. Not tasting any alcohol anywhere which make this dangerously easy to drink. Have to remind myself not to chug it. Real nice job! Reynolds314 (3477) - Connecticut, USA - SEP 17, 2013
Huge sticky grapefruit and grass dominate the aroma. Nice sweetness finishes bitter and relatively dry. Really great juicy DIPA with tons of pungent citric bitterness without being abrasive. Love it. bob_w (378) - new york, New York, USA - SEP 6, 2013
orange tinted amber/gold, slight haze, good hop aroma. some malt sweetness mixing with some hop flavors. grassy malty. finishing bitterness. bottleforager (3208) - Gray, Maine, USA - SEP 1, 2013
Pours a ripe golden color with a big sticky eggshell foam... aromas are abundant and huge... filling the room and inviting you to chug it. Big tropical fruits that are layered and complex, grapefruit, pineapple, mango, dank earthiness too, straw, pine, wow ! The palate is hop juice and amazingly drinkable...no joke not just being a homer here. This is delicious. The balance between fruity overtones, earthy undertones and a touch of malty sweetness is like the holy trinity of DIPA’s ! Some heady hop juice right here.... 1.5L into it and 2L to go. Yummy, absolutely perfect bitterness finishes it up !

Taster at the source. Pale oraange gold with a white head. Scent of grapefruit, mango and pine. Smells delicious! Flavor is malt behind piney hop. Malt overpowers the hop slightly. 8% alcohol is very well hidden. This double IPA is pretty approachable.
