Cask conditioned firkin at the Pourhouse. Very hazy golden pour almost as though a light shines from the center of the glass. Very little head as a result of the cask conditioning. Big citrusy aroma. Well-balanced citrus hops and sturdy malt in the flavor. Very soft mouthfeel and a long mildly bitter finish. Alcohol quite well hidden. Well done.

From notes: Pours slightly hazy pale amber with a 2-finger ivory-colored head. Sharp, piney hops aroma. Palate was light, but deep and slightly oily. Deep piney-hops flavor that lingers with a pepperyness on the tongue, but not as hop-heavy as a lot of double IPA’s are. Very nice. jsmerig (1725) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 14, 2011
Pours a hazy yellow with a minimal head. Aroma is grassy and floral. Taste is briefly sweet at the start followed quickly by a torpedo of spicy tartness that goes to the back of your throat and finishes bitter. Crisp finish. Lingering Pepper. yespr (48954) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - JUN 6, 2011
From tap. Pours hazy orange with a small tan head. Aroma is nice peachy and citrusy hoppy. Smooth hops fruity and with a sweet impression. Ends citrusy and bitter. Smooth fruity and bitter hoppy. Nickls (2617) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - MAY 17, 2011
Tap. Clear light yellowy orange with a white head. Dank hops really dominate, some grassy notes and grapefruit as well. Taste very much mirrors the aroma, and a nice gapefruity hoppy burn that rounds out with some passion fruit. Love that the body is a little lighter and slick, and it’s a pretty clean show of hops that’s missing the sweetness from a lot of other East Coast DIPAs. Nice.

750ml bottle. Rating #106. Bright gold with an orange tint and a pretty nice white head with some pretty good lacing. Light clean hoppy aroma, really mild. A little bitter, but very mild with a bit bit of graininess. Pretty nice. (1682) chibuck (3521) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 27, 2011
The beer pours a cloudy light gold with good carbonation. At least three fingers of head good retention, ok retention.
The aroma is light nice hops slightly pine, easy to smell, but that’s about all there, a slight bit of rice on the end.
The taste is ok, its really light, a little hops throughout but its not super smooth or totally appealing. I’d drink but probably not again. Nothing special here. Sledutah (7979) - Utah, USA - MAR 14, 2011

Appearance: Slightly hazy yellow with a small white head and light lacing
Aroma: Floral and fruity
Taste: Floral and citrus
Nice, not very hoppy for a DIPA.
Bottle shared by Eric. Pours a deep bronze color with a medium white head. The aroma is sweet honey and fruity hops. The flavor is a decent fruity hop- some citrus for sure-, and grains sweet toast, a bit more mellow than I’d like. Perhaps this was a bit too old, I didn’t see an age.

750 mL bottle from Ye Old Spirit Shop in Frederick, MD. Pours a hazy dark straw yellow with a medium frothy white head. Decent head retention and lacing. Aroma of rice, citrus and floral hops, caramel. The taste is big citrus hops with a resinous finish and a bit of a tropical note. Fairly strong rice notes with some nuttiness. Medium bodied. Strong lingering bitterness. Nice beer.
