Ive been drinking this for a while, but it seems that Ive finally gotten a fresh bottle, and what a difference it makes. The aroma is intensely floral, and quite marijuana like. Impressive. The appearance is exactly what a DIPA should be - amber, clear but with only a small head leaving little lacing. It tastes like a resinated primo bud. This is an excellent beer, almost perfect. And a great price tag as well. Drink it.

tightslice (1069) - Redwood City, California, USA - NOV 13, 2016
Bottle from Safeway in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is tropical fruits, grapefruit, maybe some honey. Taste is tropical marmalade, grapefruit peels. Up front the taste is really great but the combination of bitter peels and booze started to wear on me at the end.

PhillyCraft (6272) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 11, 2016
Backlog. Draft. Golden brown color with medium to larger head. Smell and flavor are heavy and resinous pine, grapefruit, overripe pineapple, toast, and grain. Lots of bitterness from the 100 IBUs. A little aggressive and boozy but has a lot of hop flavor. Used to like this one but would never order it these days with all the lower alcohol and cleaner juices.

androman (1900) - Maarssen, NETHERLANDS - NOV 5, 2016
1pt 6fl oz bottle at home from FirmaBier, 6 weeks after expire date. Nose is citrus, grass, weed. Body is clear pale, head is small, offwhite, frothy, average lasting, good lacing. Aroma is malty, grapefruit, honey, tropical fruits, leather. Medium sweet, light bitter, light citric sour. Finish is long lasting hoppy medium bitter, hint of salt. Medium body, dry texture, average carbonation. Quite easy, strong flavor, good balance but weird taste, should drink a fresh one next time, not bad though.

Lambister (471) - FINLAND - SEP 17, 2016
Large bottle @ Flinders Lane. Bisquit and fresh grass on the nose. Fresh hoppy mouth with loads of flavor. Bit soapy at the end but still everything is really well put.

jhamp9 (1712) - Corinth, Texas, USA - AUG 25, 2016
Lightly hazy yellow orange pour with a fluffy white head and great lacing. Aroma is earthy, herbal, pine, mango, and toffee. Taste starts earthy then goes into citrus and tropical fruit with a piney finish. Some caramel sweetness to balance it out. Lingering piney aftertaste. Medium body.

Tstamba (775) - Maryland, USA - AUG 18, 2016
Bomber to a pint. Hazy copper orange with thin white head. Pungent pine and citrus notes... Balanced, quaff able, dry bitter finish... Outstanding DIPA! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Sparf (243) - stersund, SWEDEN - JUL 31, 2016
En doft av helt frsk barrskog och grs samt grapefrukt, saftig frukt och en touch kola. Exceptionellt vlbalanserad doft, inte s stor men mycket elegant. Hr finns ocks en svag ton av rttpiss/surt disktrasa som ger karaktr. Klar brygd med gulaktig frg. Varaktigt skum. Citronskal, kdatoner och en rejl grapebeska. I frlngningen mest citrus och drefter en sakta avklingande vlavvgd beska. Ordinr kropp och mjuk kolsyra. Riktigt bra IPA av den friska, mindre sta sorten.
