Bottle. Only a little bitter for a 9% IIPA. Fruity esters and aromas. Balanced out by the wheat, flowers, and bread. Really excellent texture. So smooth. And lots of flavor. Bebum (986) - Massachusetts, USA - MAY 9, 2014
Clear, copper, little lace.
Full body, medium flavor density, silky texture, assertive and balanced mouthfeel, spritzy, good alcohol heat, long palate.

Golden color with a white head. Fruity pineapple aroma. Light malty start. Tropical fruit, pineapple, light scallions flavor in the back of my mouth. Finish is a little metallic. Not much bitterness. 9% alcohol is really masked. Seems a little light for a DIPA but a Nice brew.

Lots of herbal hops over a sweet malt background. I had this at the Brooklyn Brewery a few years ago, but I was drunk then and this is different from what I remember. Not bad. Meilby (11495) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 2, 2014

Pours slightly hazy deep golden with a off-white head. Aroma has notes malt, caramel, citrus, grape and pine. Taste is medium sweet and medium bitter with a long warm, citrus and orange finish. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.
Drank from a bottle poured into a tulip glass.
There’s an earthy hop aroma, but nothing very strong.
It has a nice palate. It’s very drinkable. Moderate bitterness.
The taste, like the aroma, is toward the conservative side, with a good balance of hopiness and maltiness, but with both toned way down compared to other DIPAs. That said, it seems more like a richer pale ale, but to call it a DIPA seems like a stretch to me. Not Brooklyn’s best. But a good beer worth trying.

Bonbon à la tire et mangue avec des élans de blanc de pamplemousse vers la finale. Rondeur alléchante et finale neutre amer. tomer (3514) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - APR 29, 2014
At a tasting, thanks zvikar, small stable creamy head, hazy lightish orange colour, fruity aroma with some citrus and vanila, dusty malty flavour, with a light fruity hoppiness, strong bitterness. Not too good. Rperez (262) - Florida, USA - APR 29, 2014
I an a big fan of Brooklyn breweries and this strong IPA at 9% it packs a blast but its also quite smooth

Bottle. Pours clear light amber with 1 finger of ivory head, large bubbles. Minimal lacing. Aroma is a battle between the floral, citrusy hops and the bready malts. Taste is similar, a hit of honey sweetness followed by resiny hops, along with notes of peach and orange. Plenty of malt, but the hop bitterness persists through the finish. Medium body, moderate carbonation, oily mouthfeel. Didn’t meld well for me; a good, but not great DIPA.
