Wow. On tap at Hamilton’s in San Diego. Wow. Did I say that already? A creamsickle in a glass. Wonderfully over the top hoppy piney nose, but creamy mouthfeel. Reminds me of Hopsickle. When I drank this, no one told me that it was 10%. The alcohol isn’t nearly as evident in this fine composition. One of these and I was quite happy. I had this AFTER Pliny the Elder and it was still an amazing double IPA. BlackEyePA (573) - USA - FEB 19, 2012
Amazing. I will keep this short. It has to be experienced. Just phenominal. Get some. Everything is right on, dont think I would change a thing. Yum! Anova167 (369) - Manhattan Beach, California, USA - FEB 19, 2012
Nice amber pour. Decent white head with good lacing. Great aroma with piney notes, but mostly lovely citrus. Flavor starts with a nice malt backbone with citrus hops and a resiny note. Get a bit of a booze heat as well. Good beer. baraciisch (3187) - California, USA - FEB 12, 2012
Love this beer... Had it a few times, but most recently last weekend at the River Rock Tap House in Sacramento... Very herbal and spicy hop character, nice lingering bitterness. Delicious erickok (6037) - Leuven, BELGIUM - FEB 7, 2012
Dark orange, hazy and medium off white head. Pine, tropical fruit, dry twigs. Good malty base, although some dead hops maybe there (after the trip to the NL). Smooth, low carbonation, but mostly of course a fierce bitterness. I like it! (66cl bottle)

22oz bottle from NorCalGrowler , pour is an awesome fading amber with lots of white head, taste is a mix or hops and malty balance on the end.. While not a hop only bomb this is a balanced IIPA and enjoyable but at 10% it packs a wallop User134089 (1644) - - FEB 3, 2012
Poured from a bomber into a pint glass. Color was caramel. Lots of head, maybe three or four fingers, mainly because of an awful pour by me. Full of white frothy cloudy lacing. Pretty similar look on the sides (film) compared to the lacing.
Lots of bitter hops in the initial sniff. Citrus hops, but couldn’t put the fruit in it. Some lemon and some tangerine I think.
Tasted of a nice mixture of caramel malts and citrus hops with a bitter alcohol backbone. Seemed to be more caramel than citrus. I’d say lemon for citrus, but not a bad balance.
Medium body. Creamy texture. Lively (above average) carbonation. Long and nice finish.
A pretty good beer overall, but I have to admit I was expecting just a tad bit more. My awful pour in the beginning didn’t help, but still. Thisis12ptfont (1176) - Los Angeles, CA, California, USA - FEB 1, 2012
Leafy hops with a fantastic citrus twist on the nose. Pours a beautiful light gold with a very thin foam top. Huge bitter hop bite up front, with an incredibly delicious citrus/grapefruit background. Strong, full flavor with a pleasant carbonation and thin, smooth texture. Overall, I am thouroghly impressed with this brew. As far as a spectacular IPA goes, this brew absolutely nails it. Genius hop flavor coushined by a subtle malt background. I love everything about this, A+ rating. brew3crew (166) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 25, 2012
Orange body with a great white head. Hops exude from the smell and the taste follows. Well balanded and definetly worth the buy thetmaxx (917) - West Sacramento, California, USA - JAN 22, 2012
Poured from the bomber. Love the rate beer app barcode scanner. This has a nice hop aroma, an even better flavor. The palate is the deal sealer, great full body nice head, and decent lacing. This is a nice iipa, the abv is felt.
