snowcrash000 (99) - Cologne, GERMANY - JAN 11, 2018
Pours a deep amber, coppery coloration. Smells quite intensly of caramel, biscuity malt, tropical/citrus fruits: mango, passion fruit, grapefruit, orange, and pine, with just the slightest hint of booze. Taste follows the nose, with a quite malt-forward taste and lots of resinous pine and bitterness, supplemented by notes of tropical and citrus fruits: mango, passion fruit, grapefruit orange. A little boozy, but really not too bad. This is a total pine bomb, quite resinous and bitter, but nicely balanced with a solid caramel, biscuity malt backbone and rich fruit notes. Loved it even though the can was slightly damaged, which caused the beer to turn a little flat. I might have rated it even higher otherwise. It's also why I'm not mentioning the head or mouthfeel.

Fruity smell ..like peaches...taste is a touch fruity off the bat...but then becomes bitter to the point of harshness...too much bitterness for me....but fairly complex...had at art bar for ringing in 2018 with Megan, Claire and gang

12oz can pours a dark amber, basically brown with some sticky, frothy white head. Nose has orange peel, black tea, herbs, pine, quite a bit of lavender. Flavor is super tannic, heavy black tea, heavy pine and herbs, some honey comb, orange. Full bodied, sticky and bitter. Old school, which by itself isn't a bad thing, but it's not particularly well done.

Can received from AnthonyMacchio. Pours hazy amber with a large, frothy off-white head, long retention with excellent lacing. Aroma is heavy citrus and tropical fruity hops, biscuit and honey malt with apple and pear esters. Flavor is medium honey and biscuit malt, moderate citrus and tropical fruit hops and bitterness, apple and pear esters and a lightly sweet finish. Medium-full body and moderate carbonation.

Draft at The Lodge Hilton Head from notes. Pours a clear amber/copper color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma and flavor had nice grapefruit and orange citrus character, resin, and leafy hops, pale toasted malts, caramel, moderate bitterness, solid DIPA, I was happy to come across this because I remember trying to get a bottle when it first came out.

chinchill (5377) - South Carolina, USA - NOV 12, 2016
On tap in Greenville, SC. Pours with a clear copper body topped by a bubbly white head. Aroma: piney hops with herbal, floral and bready aspects. Flavor: much hoppy but with enough malts to create a good bitter/sweet balance and to add some toffee and bread notes. Moderate complexity. Feel: medium+ body. Overall; malty and refreshing version of a DIPA.

12 oz. can purchased at the brewery (given to me by a co-worker). Canned April 12, 2016. Dark orange pour with a creamy off-white head. Nice aroma of tangerine, grapefruit rind, and wet grass. Taste of fresh pine, grapefruit, peach, and faint toffee. Lingering but certainly not unpleasant finish. A great DIPA!
