Draft at Cellarmaker. Surprisingly clear copper with a medium white head. Aroma is hoppy, citrus, mango, pine. Flavor has some light sweet malt, good fruity piney hop punch. Fuller feel, good carbonation. Good, but not as good as expected given the very different beer that is Double Dobis. Ibrew2or3 (9050) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - DEC 30, 2017
Pint can pours with a near clear copper body that supports a thin white head of foam. The modest aroma offers up resiny pine hops, booze and then some boozy grapefruit and lime. The taste delivers booze nuanced grapefruit flowing into malty resiny pine hops. There's not much more going on here. A deeper look reveals faint sweet breadines and sweet pear fruity esters. Not sure about this one. culchiem (4339) - 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 (23401) - 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.

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 (16696) - 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 (15623) - 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. Theydon_Bois (22092) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - FEB 10, 2016
Keg at cellarmaker, 28/01/16.
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. Ferris (17946) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 31, 2016
Draft - Light dank and tropical fruits. Cloudy gold with almost no head. Boozy, dank and concentrated orange citrus. Too boozy.
