Chalice at Whole Foods Chandlerís Watering Hole. Lovely golden amber with slight head that disappears quickly. Citrus, hoppy nose with malty grain backbone. Sweet forward with hop taste without the bitterness at first, well balanced. Slightly bitter finish. Different from other DIPAs and thatís what makes it awesome.† Embrouille (2852) - SWITZERLAND - DEC 15, 2012
Bottled. Paler in appearance than expected. Brewed without crystal malt. Deeply inviting impressive nose. Peppery on the swallow. Excellent. Sathorael (159) - Oceanside, California, USA - DEC 13, 2012
Pours burnished gold/amber with medium head that didn?t last. Good lacing. Aroma is pine resin, citrus, grapefruit and earthy. Tastes heavily of pine with little hints of citrus and sweet malt. Finish is dry with and mild earthy astringency. kiwianer (3428) - Otorohanga, NEW ZEALAND - DEC 13, 2012
The head is robust. it smells fantastic, different hoppy, a bit creamy, fruity. The taste is very intensive, different hoppy, a lot of fruits like peach, lemongrass, citrus, a bit grassy. Very good! 12/12/12/12/11/12 akcarnahan226 (2) - hudson, New York, USA - DEC 12, 2012 does not count
pours a clear golden color, with a small amount of white lacy foam. aromas of pine and citrus. tastes sweet, with a medium bitterness that lingers. body is medium, with a sort of oily, long bitter finish. tastes ideal for a double ipa. burping up pine is always a good sign.

great stuff; intense flavour of ripe apricots and elderflower, followed by smooth caramel and malt; on the palate itís still fruity but becomes more and more malty and a bit spicy; be carefull: itís a strong one but you donít really recognize it ;-) alexsdad06 (10289) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 9, 2012
22 oz. bottle. Pours a clear golden color with a small white head. The aroma is sweet caramel, citrus, pine resin with some mild cat piss. The flavor is in line with what a DIPA should be; big caramel, big citrus and resiny hops. Medium plus body with strong bitterness to the finish. SpringsLicker (3617) - Tennessee, USA - DEC 7, 2012
Pours clear dark yellow with a sticky white head.
Clean aroma of citrus rind and light pine resin.
The flavor is smooth bitterness with a dry finish.
Just enough sweetness to balance and not sticky sweet like some Double IPAs. Sumonation (94) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 7, 2012

0.65l bottle shared with The Tasting Crew. A treat! This is a clear golden-flower colored one with a small bubbly off-white top. Smells really nice! Sweet caramel, piny hops, some cat piss, apricots and the green part on the strawberry. Smells really nice. Oh, lotís of sticky caramel sweetness in the taste, but itís quickly balanced by a string pine cone-like bitterness. A Sticky mouthfeel and a soft to average carbonation level. Warming sticky alcohol - that hits many spots. Itís clearly not fresh this bottle, but still quite tasty! 26.10.2012
