Pours hazy orange red with white head, aroma has notes of pine, grass, slightly muted citrus and some caramel. Taste is fairly simple, fairly hoppy with pine and grass, some slight citrus, with a nice biscuit and caramel middle, fairly bitter finish. Much more like a single IPA, but pretty good.

Seems pretty subdued for a double IPA. Has some citrus on the nose but nothing too pronounced. Lubiere (13994) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 29, 2011
A dark reddish amber IPA with a thick moka head. In aroma, pleasant floral hops with wild grass notes. In mouth, a bitter and unbalanced version, lacking malts, bilous notes, watery. On tap at PA Flavor, April 9th, 2011. nike (966) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 22, 2011
This beer came highly suggested as an IPA. Wow, what a major disappointment. Clear amber with a decent head, but this is considered an IPA? Where are the hops? Not in the smell of the beer, nor in the taste. Hardly had any hops flavor to it. It lacked the bite an IPA should have. It did have a citrus taste. Not a bad beer, not in the IPA league. zach8270 (4021) - Henrietta, New York, USA - MAR 13, 2011
(bottle - 12 oz) Cloudy copper pour with a thin white head. Sweet citrus and caramel aroma with some slight hints of boiled vegetables. Citrus and caramel begin quickly before the bitter and astringent hops take over. Very dry and peppery with a flavor that lingers and lasts. A bit too cloying for me.

Draft or bottle either way its good stuff. If you a fan of the amber IPA’s with the nice roasty burnt amber flavor this is it. It has a really clean taste and a nice dry finish that does not belie its 8% alcohol. Eat a steak and some spicy seafood and drink 3 or 4 of ’em. Plus the label on the bottle is bad ass, although I would never award points for artwork. Naka (719) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 1, 2011
Pours a dark slightly hazy brown with very little head. Aroma has a little roasty note. A little molasses and very little hops. Flavor is kind of roasty and with a really strong citrus rind bitter. There is a little butterscotch and a slightly warming alcohol. Body is medium heavy, but there is something missing. unclemike (3150) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - DEC 15, 2010
Pours a cloudy light brownish copper with a medium sized white head. Beautiful aroma of faint grapefruit, grassy pine notes and sour hard candy. Taste of grapefruit with light piney resin and grass. Has a finish of lemon tea flavor. Surprisingly good ttutony (922) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 11, 2010
Deep amber in the glass. Grassy, floral, and citrus hop aroma. Smooth bitterness on the palate. 5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - DEC 4, 2010
Bottle: Deep amberish, slight haze, thin sudsy white head, so-so lacing. Sweet citrus rind like nose, smidgen of tea leaves and hops. Semi-sweet to start, citrusy, doesn’t show up with much bitterness. Malt background is moderate. This beer doesn’t seem like 8%. On the sweeter side, without being cloying. Hop & citrus aspect towards the end fall off a bit. Maltier than your standard IPA, yet not as bitter. Also a touch sweeter than most. Doesn’t feel as if its an IIPA, more like 1½ IPA. Finish is clean. Decent, but not one to write home about. Thanks to Dan for the bottle!
