From the bottle. Nice thick head, aroma of pure citrus! Very bitter! Dry finish. Very good dipa! Takes hops of wrath up a notch. Never disappointed by dust bowl. madchemist83 (272) - USA - APR 13, 2015
Aromas citrus and citrus peel. Great clean taste with slight bitterness. Slight citrus in aftertaste as well. Doesn’t feel like 9.5 percent at all. Super smooth and tasty. XmnwildX12 (2079) - Farmington, Minnesota, USA - SEP 20, 2013
Bottle through trade, nice hazy amber orange pour with a white head and sticky lacing. Aroma is all pine and some subtle grapefruit. Taste is spot on with aroma, has a nice malt backing, super solid beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone hayduke (5691) - Eureka, California, USA - JAN 26, 2016
This was shared with Strykzone on Facebook Chart. From a 22 oz bottle pours dark copper. Creamy off-white head. Nose is fruit, citrus, pine, and a lot of earthy aromas. The body is full, and the mouth feel is resinous and pine touch. The flavor is very strong pine, with fruit, citrus, and the earthiness following. The finish is very pine bitter. ABV hidden well enough. This is a powerful beer, with lots of malts and hops. Lots of bitterness. A little more flavor would be appreciated but overall a really big beer and for some much hops and bitterness quite easy drinking. Ratman197 (15440) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - FEB 12, 2013
