Very hoppy beer. It's pretty good that anyone that loves IPAs/flavorful beers will enjoy this beer. Highly recommended.

Thanks Bert for this beautiful bottle from Maryland .Pours murky and orange with a soft glow in the body of the beer. Decent head of creamy foam that fell pretty fast to some shimmering lace and a thin layer of bubbles on top. Nose is tropical, orange and herbal. Juicy citrus with a good caramel and breaddy malt spine in back. There’s some pine and resin and a faint whiff of soap that doesn’t last. Taste is intense. Grapefruit and tart citrus, pithy then the sweet orange. The malt stayed strong with toasted grain, a little nutty and caramel.The alcohol was warming but not overly present on the palate even though it does show up more and more as it warms. Good oily body and the fruits really lasted throughout the drink next to such a strong malt presence and hop bitter. Finished dry with some bite from the bubbles and a lasting bitter. It even glowed a little in the aftertaste. It drank a little heavy and had a full body but it was packed with flavor that made it really enjoyable. thorongil2 (3572) - , Ontario, CANADA - MAY 16, 2013
(bottle) hazy orange amber colour with a medium tall white head; aromas of citrus and pine; rich mostly bitter flavour with a long strong bitter finish chronictonic (490) - Oreland, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 13, 2013
Pours golden orange with thin white head. Surprisingly mild aroma - some citrus and alcohol aromas when swirled. Very carbonated. Medium taste level, well balanced - certainly not over the top flavor wise. Alcohol well hidden in the flavor profile. Decent dIPA. (note my bottle says 8.5% not the 9.3% as listed here) bigguns22 (806) - Maryland, USA - MAY 12, 2013

Rich deep hazy copper coloured body with a bright orange and peach coloured glow with a massive, four centimetre tall tan head - very nice. Aroma of resin, alcohol, pine, grapefruit, a lot of sugars and some noticeable malt. Full-bodied; Super rich flavour of grapefruit and resin up front - this is a pungent and potent beer. Aftertaste shows a great variety of hop flavours with floral notes spanning to pine and grapefruit and everything in between. All with a lot of malt behind for a great balance, but still a strong beer. Overall, a nice and deep imperial IPA that has a great flavour profile, is strong and pungent and served in a small format bottle. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Total Wine in McLean, Virginia on 02-April-2013 for US$2.79 sampled at home in Washington on 08-May-2013. cpetrone84 (1810) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 7, 2013
Pour is golden orange and transparent with a white fairly bubbly head. The nose is fairly balanced with malt and hop. Sticky caramel and light dough with citrus orange hop behind. Taste is much more malt forward, caramel, stale grain and dough. Hops are fairly citrusy and brings a light bitterness through a lightly carbonated finish. Body is fairly full and creamy.

Bottle. Pours gold with a slight white head. Some loose lacing. Light citrus and pine aromas. Sticky sweet taste with bits of pine and orange zest. Not bad, easy drinking for a DIPA. Nothing spectacular. Could use a more well-rounded hop bill. Some tropical fruits would go a long way here.
