Bottle. Orange juice malt and grapefruit peel aroma. Hazy golden yellow with moderate head. Sweet orange malt and strong bitter spruce/grapefruit peel flavor. Nice body. Good but nothing to set it apart. wlajwl (7125) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - JUN 25, 2014

21 karat pour with subtle carbonation that produced a small soapy head. Tart grapefruit, bright tangelo, lemon zest, and candied orange. Not enamel peeling but a well balanced example of the style. Enjoyed it.

12 oz bottle, clear orange, good head that fades leaving lots of lacing. Aroma of pineapple and peaches, a little floral. Great malt background and loads of hop flavor make this a very balanced and dangerous beer. No way this is %9. Its well hidden. Great IIPA! chinchill (5343) - South Carolina, USA - JUN 15, 2014
Clear medium amber with a small bag that soon reduces to a thin top coat. soupy (36) - - JUN 13, 2014
Hop dominated aroma followed by a slightly more balanced flavor. Fruity with a mix of soft fruits and not just citrus.
Medium body with lively carbonation.
A full bodied beer, copper pour, thin head, easy on the palate despite the 9% ABV, a great double IPA. superspak (6099) - Waterford, Michigan, USA - JUN 12, 2014
12 ounce bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 3/27/2014. Pours fairly crystal clear orange amber color with a 2 finger dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big grapefruit, tangerine, lemon zest, orange peel, pineapple, floral, grass, pine, caramel, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Very nice aromas with good complexity of bright citrus/grassy hops and moderate malt balance; with good strength. Taste of big grapefruit, tangerine, lemon zest, orange peel, pineapple, citrus rind, floral, grass, pine, caramel, light bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Good amount of floral/pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, lemon zest, orange peel, citrus rind, floral, grass, pine, light caramel, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Very nice complexity and balance of bright citrus/grassy hops and moderate malt sweetness; with a great crisp malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, crisp, and lightly sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice DIPA! All around good complexity and balance of bright citrus/grassy hops and moderate malt balance; and very smooth and crisp to sip on for the ABV. A very enjoyable offering.
