Bottle, sampled at Pete’s house. Lots of pine & grapefruit here, some nice cotton candy & caramel malt. Solid and hides the alcohol really well. theisti (4126) - Kansas, USA - JUN 11, 2011
22 oz bottle sent to me by alagnak. Labeled as Seven Seas (I just got the reference) Double India Pale Ale - 9% alc/vol. Pour is a cloudy orange copper with a nice one inch creamy white head. Some patchy lacing left behind. Aroma is grassy, resin and mild citrus hops, along with lightly sweet caramel malt. Taste is the toasted caramel malt first, then the nice grassy resin - nice balance and softness in the flavor. The malt is not overly sweet. Hops are pretty subdued compared to the aroma. Palate is medium bodied, nicely un-filtered mouth feel, and a bit of alcohol heat poking through in the dry finish. Nice, though I am sure fresher the flavors pop a lot more on this. Thanks for sending this my way Chris. wavers1 (916) - Notown, California, USA - JUN 10, 2011
well, this isnt FORMERLY known as seven seas, as i just got a fresh bottle in trade and its clearly marked seven seas dipa. alcohol is only 9% now also. thanks to headyglass for the hook!
pours a slightly hazy crisp light copper to amber color with some supended paritcles, truly suspended, sit there forever consistantly through the entire body. the aroma is nice an ccheesy bitterness, decnt but not over the top. the flavor is very agreeablke with me, and the body was spot on for the style, drinks more like an ipa, not a ton of risdidual sugars or crystal which is a big downfall for most iipas. i enjoyed this one and it would bea great local to have around.

Tap. Pours hazy orange with a medium, fizzy white head, medium retention with good retention. Aroma is heavy malt (bread, caramel, toast), heavy hops (herbal, pine, citrus), and average esters (apple/pear) with notes of peach and apricot. Flavor is moderate malt and heavy hops. Medium body, warmth, and carbonation and a dry finish. SpringsLicker (3637) - Tennessee, USA - JUN 2, 2011
Dry Dock IIPA pours a body that is mostly clear yellow with a white head.
The aroma is pine and citrus hops.
Well balanced with the light bitterness taking the edge overall.

Aroma has resiny fruit tones of tangerine, orange, with a rich, sweet sap like aspect. Also noticeable is buttered biscuit. Flavor is pretty earthy, and less nectary, with a soily feel, and a fruity, leafy hop profile. Overall pretty good. stabzmcgee (72) - Colorado, USA - APR 29, 2011
Aroma is almost a vegetable smell, but heavily smells of a delicious hop stage of wart. Appearance is nice, a hazy golden orange with a white head. Taste is unique and complex. Fruit, earthy hops, citrus, and many subtle hop levels. Medium body. Resinous slick texture. Soft hint of carbonation with a long and tasty finish. Thorpe429 (5035) - , Illinois, USA - APR 25, 2011
Big thanks to Popkas for sending this bottle out my way. Served in a Captain Lawrence tulip.
Pours a nice orange color with a pretty hefty white head that stuck around for quite a bit before falling and leaving some sticky lacing behind. The nose was mostly floral with a bit of citrus creeping in. Hops, that is. Mild malt character in the background. The flavor was pretty similar. The floral hop notes tended to dominate with a bit of orange rind in the background. I’ll same marmalade; I know some people like those descriptive terms. Body was light to medium with a really nice dry, bitter finish. A good beer that I’d certainly have again.

Probably the only decent beer worth drinking from this brewery. Citrus hops everywhere. Pretty well balanced. An above average IIPA. ibeerlove (113) - Colorado, USA - APR 5, 2011
crisp citrus and sharp pine aroma with some peach and fruity hop background, smells awesome complimented well with a sweet caramel smell, overall aroma is wonderfully balanced one I would liken to a stone brew, appearance is a dark golden bordering on orange, first taste starts bitter and smooths into a citrusy piny taste, then finishes with grass hop flavor and relatively dry, overall a double IPA that is just as respectable as any of the bigger breweries imperial IPAs
