22 oz bottle from Pendulum Fine Meats in Norfolk, VA; cool place. Clear orange with a puffy beige head. Nose is honey, pink grapefruit, grass and slight musk. Oily and resiny medium body with muted carb. Taste is caramel, pine, grass and orange pith. Green and herbal, sticky then dry.

chinchill (5314) - South Carolina, USA - JAN 28, 2015
On tap. Poured clear light amber with a generous and thick foamy off-white head; corresponding lacing. The aroma is appealing, but less hoppy than expected. T - too sweet and short on hops, if judged by style. Ignoring that, this is a bold, well balanced ale that drinks like a bold APA with well-hidden ABV, although the alcohol adds complexity. M - near medium body with medium+ carbonation. The higher ABV adds some warmth O - this surprising "double IPA" is balanced and easy drinking.

ben4321 (6735) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JAN 5, 2015
Location: 22 oz bottle from Bruisin’ Ales, 1/5/15

Aroma: The aroma is lighter than I expected, citrus/orange, pine notes, dough, and booze
Appearance: This one pours a clear orange color with a beige head that coats the glass
Flavor: The sweetness and citrus are subtle, bitterness comes through more than anything else
Palate: Medium-plus bodied, light heat, with a soft-to-average carbonation, and a dry finish
Overall Impression: This one definitely needs to warm up a bit, when it is too cold the aroma is a little lacking. Once it warns up, it improves, but it still isn’t amazing. A DIPA from Foothills? Sounded exciting. This is okay, but I expected this one to be better.

Sampled at esbls. big citrus with tropical fruit flavor and aroma. Cinnamon? Bitterness big but under control. Nice beer.

dinkle50 (1532) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 8, 2014
Cloudy golden pour with a single finger head. Aroma of pine, citrus. Strong grapefruit bitterness. Medium mouth. Lots of citrus in this one. Not overly balanced being a hop bomb, but it is pretty drinkable for how bitter it is.

Very hoppy. Pretty good body. Nice lacing. Otherwise a mainstream IPA. Not much else.

3.7
tmoreau (4632) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - SEP 24, 2014
UPDATED: OCT 7, 2014 Shared bomber poured to snifters, showing a hazed to cloudy, orangey gold color, with a presentable layer of off white head foam, and spots & streaks of lacing. The nose was dank & leafy, with maybe some light esters as pit fruit & citrus, and a hint of caramel sweetness. Medium bodied, with decent carbonation, as not too much fruit transferred to the taste, which showed a strong, very lingering, rindy bitterness that seemed to mask the alcohol, and was tempered only slightly by some malt sweetness. An earthy & hearty DIPA,

roder60 (1289) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 5, 2014
Pours a hazy light orange yellow with big frothy white head. Much lighter appearance than would be expected. Aroma sugared orange with slight citrus twang. Flavor surprisingly light on palate and perfectly balanced. Bit of dry bite up front then citrusy slight sweet middle and very mild warming boozy hop finish. Love it. Totally kickass beer.

Near clear yellow copper. Aroma is orange biscuit. Taste is orange and bitter sour candy. Enjoyable and somewhat complex.
