UPDATED: APR 1, 2013 This is one of the best Double IPAs I’ve tasted. Massive grapefruit flavors and extremely well balanced. Mouthfeel is THICK ASS STOUT. Just moved to California and this beer knocked me on my ass. Impressive. RIP Skankin’ Pickle. gmorrow16 (8) - - MAR 24, 2013 does not count

22oz bomber. Pours a light copper color with very little head. Aroma is very citrusy. Orange, pineapple, mango, apricot, and grapefruit. Taste mimics the nose. Just an abundance of citrus hops and tropical fruit. vvesside (256) - California, USA - MAR 21, 2013
Good, strong, bitter DIPA. Floral and citrus aroma. Very malty. The grapefruit and basil in the description definitely come through.

Poured very similar to the Union Jack with decent lacing. Strong hop nose followed through the mouth with heavy, heavy hops. kgrew99 (9) - New Jersey, USA - MAR 19, 2013 does not count
Unintentionally aged for about six months. What bitterness what's there is now almost completely gone. Still a huge citrusy nose and flavor. Light body. Time has done this well.

I was expecting a much different IPA than their Union Jack (blind tasting), but only slightly more alcohol, hops, and citrus taste than the latter. Still, another winner from Firestone/Walker. GSH1976 (307) - Delaware, USA - MAR 17, 2013
Pours a very clear golden with a touch of amber and average head. Aroma is citrus and pine. Very nice. Taste follows the nose and is very clean and crisp. There is a hint of sweetness which goes well with the strong hop profile. Medium bodied with a bitter finish. For the high abv this beer is surprisingly light. A well done DIPA.
