3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Black Squirrel, DC tap ($9): Pours a light amber with a white head. Aroma is grapefruit and pine. Taste is rather hoppy and bitter, but the aftertaste is not too crazy, but pleasant. I let this one warm up a bunch and its complexity came out to a greater degree. Body was nice. A very good DIPA, but it didn’t really differentiate itself that much.
Pours a clear golden with a small, white, diminishing head. Dry with some sweetness. Hoppy aromas of spruce with some resin. Also hints of caramel. Medium to full bodied. Medium carbonation. Bitter finish. MarcoDL (5467) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 23, 2013
I like Chinook, so naturally I liked this beer as well, cause it has a lot of Chinook. Nice. kiwianer (3428) - Otorohanga, NEW ZEALAND - JUN 9, 2013

12oz bottle. Pours a hazy golden color with moderate white head. Aroma of bitter orange zest, sweet caramel malt, and candied apricot. Taste is orange zest, candied apricot, grapefruit, sweet caramel, with some copper hops. I really enjoyed this beer more and more as it warmed up. TheJestersBeer (2431) - SWEDEN - FEB 1, 2013
Pours a medium amber, with a white head.
Off-dry, full bodied, high bitterness, balanced CO2.
Very hoppy, resinous taste, apricot, peach, grapefruit peel, passion fruit, malt, marzipan. Very taste, but feels a bit like an overhopped, leaner Barley Wine. Very nice anyhow. (2013-01-26)

Pours a rich gold with slight haze. Loose carbonation with a strong orange pine flavor. Tastes of sweet toasted cereal malts and tangerine/orange back notes. The bitter is long lasting and masks the alcohol. 5000 (6900) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - DEC 18, 2012
Bottle:   Pale amber, faint haze, moderate frothy white head, fairly clingy lacing.   Somewhat of a candied citrus peel nose, otherwise a bit pithy.   Boozy up front, pithy, some alcohol infused candied citrus peel as well.   This is a salivator!   Makes yer mouth water after each sip.   Bitter, and certianly a little biting too.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   A bit astringent on the finish.   Its a rough IIPA thats for sure, but not out of the realm of enjoyable. blipp (9899) - La Mesa, California, USA - DEC 16, 2012
Draft. Pours gold with a white head. Big grapefruity citrus, pine, light sweet malts, and a hint of booze. Medium bitterness with a long lingering finish. Nice. madmitch76 (26366) - , Essex, ENGLAND - NOV 8, 2012

Borefts warm up at Bier Temple, Amsterdam. Light haze on this amber beer, good pale cream coloured head. Palate is smooth. Smooth malts, rich malt cream. Mild aniseed alcohol Deep rich hops. Bitter marmalade hand in hand with with rich malt cream. Smooth finish. mildly bitter aftertaste.
This one poured a lighter orange color with an off white head. Aroma was of candy sugar, bittering hops, earth notes, and alcohol. Flavor was tons of alcoholc and candy sweetness, followed by extreme bitterness with hardly any hop flavor, just bad all around.
