Hoppy aroma, pretty fruity, but not too bitter. Appearance is definitely lacking. The color is more pale than amber, but the head is white, which leaves a nice lace. Medium sweet and bitter is light. This is a full body beer. A slick texture with soft carbonation. Overall this a very strong beer and was at one point my favorite beer. mikeq215 (69) - Wayne, New Jersey, USA - JAN 10, 2014
Smells sweet, of citrus. Taste is same, with medium hoppyness and a thin mouthfeel. Great fuity DIPA. johnadam2002 (529) - Hainesport, New Jersey, USA - AUG 12, 2007
Woah! Poured dark amber with off white head. Big aroma of hops and citrus. Big party of hop flavors in your mouth with hints of citrus. One of best IIPA I’ve ever had. Delicious and smooth. setauketone (10) - setauket, New York, USA - AUG 12, 2009
I tried this beer at Stony Brook Beverage from theor Growler Bar. This is an amaxing Imperial IPA. It was smooth as could be. Clear golden-orange color with a whitish head. Piney hop aroma along with sweet malt. Flavor is hops, citrus, and sweet caramel malt. Well-balanced with a medium-full, somewhat bready palate. beerfest5 (1207) - Cloneen, IRELAND - NOV 21, 2009
I know I am rating this one really high, but it is such a nice thing to have an east coast DIPA taste this good. A really nice west coast version of an DIPA. taste is just what you’d expect, nice floral/citrus notes, not too "fat" of a taste and goes down unbelievably smooth. well done and i cant wait to take another sip.

(Bottle 19/2-2011) When drinking this beer you wonder when the captain will knock down the door and reclaim this great beer for his reserve. This is simple a fantastic imperial IPA. SanfordBrewer (1610) - Sanford, Florida, USA - MAR 17, 2013
Translucent orange with a foamy beige head. Silky and slightly oily full body with medium carbonation.TheRealBastard (145) - The-No, California, USA - AUG 25, 2008
Aroma: piney citrusy hop resins, sweet pale ale malt.
Taste: caramel malt sweetness, citrus flower hop oils.
Great flavor, texture, and balance.
Tap at Captain Lawrence. This stuff is scary good. Best session beer on the planet. I debate between this and hopslam as my favorite DIPA’s. Pours foggy amber color with beautiful quarter in white head. It’s piney and juicy. Has a nice hoppy and fresh taste to it. Great summer slammer. This go down very easy, highly recommended double IPA. Slightly underated IMO. SSKD814 (854) - Pennsylvania, USA - APR 22, 2010
My first growler by mail!
A- Body is a crystal clear deep amber that pours with a large, slightly off-white foamy head. Head slowly subsides to one finger and leaves plenty of lacing behind in the glass.
S-Nose is nice, bright, and hoppy. Citrus (grapefruit) dominates the nose with a sweet malty backbone.
T-Juicy grapefruity hops flavor upfront with a sweet malt backbone, a hint of pine comes through for the finish as the malt fades and the citrus flavors intensify and a slight bitterness emerges. The bitterness disappears quickly along with everything else making one want the experience all over again.
P- Very low carbonation (only flaw...may be because of growler) and body filled with smooth oily hops. Very nice.
O- This is a VERY nice DIPA. Underrated, IMO. Its ranking as one of my favorites. The 8.00% is pretty much unnoticeable and I’m sure will sneak up on me fast as I try to write a paper. My first Captain Lawrence brew and I am looking forward to trying the other two I have in my possession now.
