I’ll start off saying this isn’t super fresh, so take this with a grain of salt. Nose of sweet, slightly burnt caramel malts, some citrus, pine, and danker hops. Taste follows, with bitter, slightly soapy hop finish. More barley wine at this point than DIPA. Booze is well hidden. MartinT (10036) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 12, 2015
My Bottom Line:BOSSbrewer (2705) - Arkansas, USA - MAY 8, 2015
Burnt honey and bitter resins fight it out alongside citrus fruit in this rich and sweetish Double IPA.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam covers the misty pale amber.
-This is not an easy drinker, even for the style. At least, the name makes you expect what you get.
-The wealthy mouthfeel is comfortable.
-This feels like an old-style DIPA; more sugary and with a coarser bitterness.
On tap at the source. Pours a reddish golden. No head. Aroma is pine. Some bubblegum. Alcohol is evident. Smooth clean. Nice beer.

Deep orange clear pour with carbonation coming up through out from bottom of glass. Oily hop and citrus aroma and flavor. Bitter finish. euniceradio (562) - Worthington, Minnesota, USA - APR 5, 2015
650ml to cervoise glass. Pours deep orange-red. Plentiful head which dwindles down to a lasting ring of light tan head quickly. Malty with notes of caramel and pale malts. Hops are spicy, floral and lemon/orange zest. Some good peach and mango as well on the finish. You can tell immediately that it is 10.0 abv. Strong beer...good beer...highly drinkable...but look out...it kicks.

[2/18/15] Draught at Bootlegger’s Brewery in Fullerton. Clear amber. Big resinous and piney hops aroma. Sweet malty flavor with caramel and resinous bitter hops. Medium-bodied. DedicatedToFun (4003) - Santa Monica, California, USA - FEB 21, 2015
Tap at Commons Alehouse, orange pour, white head, nose is oranges, taste is super bitter and awesome Wittales (884) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - FEB 9, 2015
Appearance was clear deep orangish gold with creamy off white diminishing 1 finger head, rings of lacing. Aromas are malt forward, citrus with a touch of alcohol. Taste are malty, yet sticky pine, grapefruit and orange creep in. The backend is to alcoholic, more like a barleywine. Palate was soft Co2 with slick full body, the malty sticky lasting finish. Overall it’s a malty DIPA, only 2 months old. Taste more like a American style Barleywine. FunkyBuddaMan (16) - boca raton, Florida, USA - FEB 6, 2015
Solid DIPA However not typically my bag of Tea. Beer pours an Amber color with minimal head. Tropical notes but what i’m not a fan of is the sweet caramel malt this beer carries. Not a bad beer by any means just not my favorite style of DIPA
