Thanks bigtime to WakeandBake (Benny) Pour is clear golden copper with an off white head with decent lacing. Aroma is floral hops dominate with some citrus and pine. Flavor is powerful bitter that lingers. Palate is spicy, kinda rough, slightly metallic, but good. Overall is solid but would like to taste fresh since it is a DIPA.

Pours a golden orange-like colour with a large, creamy white head. Smells of hops, citrus, and pine. Flavour is very hoppy with pine and citrus accents. Adrian says there are some grassy notes so I’ll take his word for it. Moderate carbonation. Reminiscent of Bells Hopslam but not as good. Goblincat (399) - Petersburg, Michigan, USA - MAY 10, 2009
Pours a golden straw in color. The aroma is hops and some citrus. The flavor is a nice blend of hops and pine. Decent overall.

Bottle. Bottled: 02/09/09. Pours a hazy straw color with a skim of an antique white head. Spicy aroma that features plenty of grapefruits, juicy oranges and their rinds, pine needles, alcohol, pepper, vanilla, and some caramel. Full-bodied, smooth, and just a touch syrupy. Flavor starts with a bit of caramel and vanilla and quickly progresses to loads of sweet oranges and then bitter grapefruits. A very drying, peppery finish. Some warming alcohol is present throughout. Excellent! coharahawk (170) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 9, 2009
On draft at Sugar Maple. Pours a light copper with abundant white head. Aroma is strong grapefruit, floral, and some citrus notes. Flavor is lots of sticky hops and resin and finishes fairly bitter. Medium body. Although very hop forward, it is pretty refreshing. Immy (1958) - Virginia Beach, USA - MAY 8, 2009
12 oz bottle. Lightly hazed yellow gold with a big white head. Big sweet nose, orange and tangerine. Excellent webby lacing. Perfumey hop flavor, mostly citrus over biscuit, sweet. Comes off oddly balanced for what amounts to a hop bomb. Not really to my liking, but tough to find fault. treadyroc (163) - St. Leonard, Maryland, USA - MAY 8, 2009
Pours a very hazy amber with just a bit of head. Very thick ’n greasy mouthfeel; rolls right over your tongue nicely. Not much citrus in this one, but the IPA bitterness is there at the end to make ya smak yer tongue on the roof of yer mouth. Definitely will buy again. hopHeadedDevil (11) - , North Carolina, USA - MAY 8, 2009
Nice thick hoppy head. Pale yellow-orangish color. Very nice pine and citrus hop aroma. Overall, one of my favorite doubles.
