Orange in color. Bitter citrus pith, light tropical and stone fruit, but mostly classic bitter grapefruit. Lots of malt to balance...perhaps a little too much, but it’s ok. The_Osprey (9916) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 10, 2016
Mar 2016 - Bottle share at Canary Wharf as ’Dust Bowl Son of Wrath’, 9.5%. Many thanks to Cloin for this DIPA tick. Dark yellow, clear, still, small foamy white head. Aroma is toffee, light floral, pithy citrus, booze. Body is smooth, soft carbonation. Taste is tangy booze, toffee, sweet gloopy stewed fruits. Too sweet and boozy for my taste. I prefer cleaner tasting DIPAs. madmitch76 (26850) - , Essex, ENGLAND - MAY 2, 2016

Ok DIPA - one for Kenny to be fair. Strykzone (7848) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JAN 26, 2016
Bomber from hayduke that we had together via facebook chat. Clear cinnamon in color with a two finger off white head. Pine and citrus in the aroma. Pine is very big. Big malts smelled, too. The pine in the flavor is even bigger. Just huge. So much pine you could mop the floor with it! And bitterness to match. Mouth numbing stuff. Bigger doesn’t necessarily make better, though. This is good, and BIG. But not great.
