culchiem (4182) - Berlin, GERMANY - NOV 16, 2017
Draught at Cellarmaker. Caramel orange with a minimal head. Aroma is light grapefruit. Flavour is spicy hop, warm chilli, malt and tropical fruit, but a bit rough overall. Leighton (22555) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 13, 2016
Draft at the brewery taproom. Pours cloudy gold with a foamy, white head. Insanely dank hops in the nose, rife with melon, onion and peach. Medium to big sweet flavour with resinous pine, pale bread, alcohol, nectarine and mango. Full bodied, lightly chewy, with fine carbonation. Warming and resinous on the finish, with tons of vibrant hops, tropical fruits. I mean, a ’quad IPA’ is a silly concept, but this stuff is great. So much fun. phaleslu (10750) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 15, 2016
Draft at Cellarmaker. Pours a hazy pale gold with a small white head that settles into a ring. Notes of pineapple, weed, pepper, pale malts, sweat, mango, pine. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a fruity, juicy, dank mouthfeel. Wow, I’m just reading the commercial deScription and now I feel like a phony. But I have to stick with my notes. For such a big DIPA - or QIPA, I guess - this one doesn’t bring layers of complexity. But it does what it does well. brokensail (16678) - Dublin, California, USA - FEB 15, 2016
On tap @ Cellarmaker. Turbid orange beer with a ring of white foam. Like a glass of pineapple orange juice. Intense citric acidity along with a lot of pineapple sweetness. Some sweet caramel for sure, as well as a bit of alcohol, but I guess that’s to be expected. Luckily it’s so fruit forward that the flaws (to me, anyway) are covered up a bit, but a small taster pour is more than good for me. DSG (15312) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - FEB 12, 2016
[1/27/16] Draught at Cellarmaker in San Francisco. Cloudy orange. Huge oniony hops aroma. Flavor has sweet malt, bitter oniony hops, alcohol. Medium-bodied. Oniony and alcoholic.

Keg at cellarmaker, 28/01/16. Ferris (16751) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 31, 2016
Hazed orange with a decent off white covering.
Nose is pine resin, juicy hop strokes, orange pith, caramel malt, grapefruit.
Taste comprises sticky tropical fruits, pine needle, dank hop strokes, grapefruit.
Medium + bodied, fine carbonation, semi aggressive hop bitterness in the close.
Decent enough DIPA but the quest for an ABV high results in a loss of drinkability and a touch too much heat.
Draft - Light dank and tropical fruits. Cloudy gold with almost no head. Boozy, dank and concentrated orange citrus. Too boozy. djd07 (15704) - Houston, Texas, USA - JAN 30, 2016
On tap at the brewery. Pours a cloudy orange with small white head. The aroma is strong orange zest, mango, pineapple. Medium mouth with nice citrus orange juice, light bitterness, very nice. BuckeyeBoy (8659) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JAN 29, 2016
On tap at cellarmaker San Francisco. pours out a hazy gold topped with a small head. nose is nice heavy hops citrus melon caramel sweetness. taste is not good odd heavy duty hop lots of sweetness. Just not my thing VsXsV (4560) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JAN 29, 2016
Hazy light amber liquid with medium off-white head. Aroma of mango, light grain, pineapple, lychee, bread, caramel and light booze. Taste is light sweet and medium bitter with notes of citrus, tangerine, light booze, pineapple and grain. Medium to full bodied with medium carbonation. Good for what it is, but the lower ABV stuff is way better at this brewery.
