PugUglyBrewer (617) - - MAR 18, 2017
Pours a clean golden color with a settled fluffy head of creamy white head. Stone fruit and bright citrus dominate the aroma with a balanced malt base allowing the hops to shine through easily. Dank hops evolve to a dry pine finish.

CObiased (496) - Bayfield, Colorado, USA - SEP 20, 2016
UPDATED: SEP 21, 2016 Bomber - It pours a semi cloudy rich golden yellow with a thick soapy off white head that easily laces my glass. I love the big citrus and piney hop aroma that blasts the olifactory senses with a mouthwatering juicy bitterness. Delicious and massive IPA here of mostly citrus peel and a bit of pine resin collaborating with a caramel malt to make a hopocalypse on my palate.

thepatrickman (1307) - Durham, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 11, 2016
Bottle from a trade with Michael (misterburd) -- cheers, buddy! This is a big beer, so much so that once it warmed it I started thinking that maybe I was drinking a hoppy barleywine, but even as a big DIPA it is delicious. Definitely an old school, West Coast style DIPA -- a lot more balanced, a lot more bitter than the hop bombs that I’m used to out here in New England -- but excellent.

3.5
Fatehunter (2561) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - MAR 4, 2016
Pours three fingers of head on a clear straw body. The aroma is a burst of pine with mango and pineapple, also a bit of bread in the background. The taste is strong deep bitterness that goes throughout. The texture is thicker. It’s a big DIPA.
