On tap. Pours dark amber with good head retention. Aroma bursts with red fruit, ripe orange, pinneaple, touch of pine. Palate is good rounded presence, medium-dry finish; not too sticky. Flavor is predictably bold and hoppy, with firm sweet malt and fruit middle. Finish is a touch booze sharp, with minty elements. Tasty.

Aquilo (636) - Berkeley, California, USA - OCT 31, 2010
Clear amber color with a small creamy head. Floral and caramel aroma with some lemon and citron hops. Flavor is crisp bitterness, but still very mellow. Smooth velvety mouthfeel. This beer is an absolute pleasure, and I cant believe I havent tried it before.

nightrider (754) - encinitas, California, USA - OCT 26, 2010
Pour from a bomber gave a copper orange color with a modest white head. Aromas are not too apparent. Good in your mouth with a medium feel. Some nice caramel toffee malt in the middle followed up by the solid hop bite at the finish. Nice long bitterness remains on your tongue a bit on the drier side. Tasty IPA for sure and would buy more.

Bottle shared at a BA/RB tasting... Poured copper-orange with an off-white head. Resinous, black pepper, sticky with hops. Black tea flavors, oak, vanilla. Not just a hop bomb, lots of depth here with flavors.

Courtesy of Bierenutz. Amber no head. Aroma dominated by pine resin, hints of citrus, not much else. Flavor is hop forward as well, huge bittering hops, pine, lite citrus, crystal malt sweetness in the finish. Sticky sweet mouthfeel.

The beer pours an orange-amber color with a white head. The aroma is very fruity. I get a ton of tropical fruit notes including pineapple, mango, apple, papaya, peaches and starfruit. Every time I smell the beer I get something new. The flavor is also very fruity. I get some caramel malt along with a ton of papaya and mango. The flavor is not as complicated as the aroma, but it is still a great tasting IPA. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. A very good Double IPA.

Thanks to Josh for sharing. Pours an orange/amber with a medium off white head. Aroma of caramel malt, pine, grapefruit and some floral hop notes. Flavor was much of the same. Very well done DIPA. Reminded me of fresh Three Floyds Dreadnaught.

22 oz. bottle courtesy of a trade with joeneugs. Pours a lightly hazed orange amber with a moderate cream colored head that lasted until the very end and a sheet of foam with each sip. Very pleasant aroma that is filled with rich pine and caramel. The flavor is equally enjoyable with caramel followed by a solid dose of resinous pine hops. Bitterness at the finish is not overdone. Mouthfeel is a bit sticky, which I like. Very enjoyable DIPA.
