dreadnord (1012) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 18, 2012
Pours golden orange with brown hues and a big white head. Nose is rich caramel, molasses, honey and pine. Taste is sweet for a second the. The hop smack in the face is delivered with great bitterness. Mouthfeel is sticky and creamy, body is heavy and the finish is long. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

SVD (2040) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 1, 2017
Bottle at home, darker orange beer, small head. Aroma is malt, caramel, hops, citrus, fruit. Taste is the same, bitter and some sweetness, very nice.

3.2
TBone (17773) - Pori, FINLAND - JUN 9, 2017
Bottled 355ml (Beer Republic, no date)
Deep clear amber color, small steady off-white head. Caramel, riped fruits and some alcohol in the nose. Medium-bodied. Fruity and a bit alcoholic with light hop oilyness. Strong and mellow but lacks real hop kick, maybe not so fresh.

thegreenrooster (4483) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - MAY 27, 2017
Pour is a hazy amber with a small white head. Aroma Is a ok fruity hop with a little honeysuckle and caramel malt. Flavor is hoppy but way more malt heavy. It’s not a sweet malt but more of a dry heavy malt. This is not hoppy enough for me to be considered a double IPA. No alcohol is felt but again not much of a hop presence. One of this beers that 10 years ago would have been world class but palates change and some of the newer DIPA’s blow this out of the water as far as fruity hops.

A good strong brew on tap near The house. Flavor was strong but went down smooth.

vtafro (7445) - Wayne, New Jersey, USA - APR 19, 2017
Draft. During my bachelor party long weekend in the san francisco area, second stop Drake’s Dealership. Golden pour with light head. Herbal, grassy, citrus and earthy hop notes, a touch of sweetness and booze.

4.1
ciocanelu (2787) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - MAR 29, 2017
Hazy dark golden color with off-white head. Aroma has a really interesting hop profile with grapes and also some juicy orchard fruits with a hint of watermelon. Taste follows with the watermelon and grapes plus some orange. Medium to intense bitterness throughout. Medium body, quite smooth on the palate. I really enjoyed this one. It has a very different hop profile from other IPAs.
