Thanks Kenric! 22oz bottle received in a trade. Pours amber with a small white head. Nose is floral, creamy, citrus, caramel...this is smooth! Mouthfeel is pretty thin, but I’m good with that. Very well done DIPA that hides the alcohol burn well. This is very drinkable for 10% abv. GT (10017) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 15, 2013
Tap at Bootleggers. Clear deep orange. Medium off white foam. Okay lace. Nose is sticky orange, sweat, foot. Taste is chalky, dusty, nutty. Dry, astringent palate. Nope. tom10101 (6297) - Quebec, CANADA - MAY 12, 2013
Bottle (22 oz). Thanks Nick! Deep amber with a medium/large frothy off-white head and good lacing. Aroma is of malt, grapefruit, pine, citrus and slight earthy notes. Taste is moderately sweet with citrus (grapefruit), pine, malt and earthy notes with a moderate bitter finish. Medium body. Dry. Clean. Very good DIPA. Not boozy despite 10% abv. Good balance. Refreshing. BeerandBlues2 (14027) - Escondido, California, USA - MAY 10, 2013
Pours nearly clear dark amber with a large, frothy off-white head, medium retention with good lacing. Aroma is fragrant floral, pine, and citrus hops with pear and apricot fruity esters with caramel and toast malt. Flavor is heavy hops and bitterness, fruity esters, supporting malt and a dry and bitter finish.

This was at an ESBLS tasting at Dave’s house. Poured a beautiful, clear, copper color and raised an attractive tan head and left good lacing as it settled Nose is full of citrus and pine hops. Body is medium and mouthfeel is clean and smooth. The flavor is intense with a great balance between the flavorful hops and malts. Finish is long, dry and perfectly bitter. This is simply a great beer. mezr (158) - California, USA - APR 28, 2013
Poured a beautiful, clear, amber color from a 22 oz bottle. A medium, frothy head developed and settled to a white film a few minutes later. Light lacing on the glass. The aroma is inviting with pronounced resin, pine, and citrus, but not intense. Taste is very clean, at first lightly sweet, and then the bitter kicks in and grows nicely. Medium body, carbonation that’s just right for the style of beer, and a very pleasent, long finish. Definitely on of the better double IPA’s I’ve sampled. Strykzone (7806) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - APR 25, 2013
Sampled at an esbls tasting. Coppery and clear. A rich caramel aroma. Nice pine hops. The flavor is well balanced. It is straightforward with those hops and caramel. Classic double IPA and well done. JStax (7316) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - APR 21, 2013
Poured from a 22 ounce bottle thanks to mashmaster. Pours a hazy copper with a fluffy white head of foam. The aroma is floral and cotton candyish. Very sweet with a pleasant, drying finish. Nice double IPA. Ataraxia (587) - California, USA - APR 18, 2013
Clear golden amber color, frothy off-white head. Sugary aroma of grapefruit, citrus, mango, pine resin, bread malt, and herbal traces. Initial sweetness gives way to hoppy bitterness. Smooth, medium-bodied, and a little boozy. Long bitter finish.
