22oz bottle. Clear amber large lasting fluffy beige head. A bit barleywine-ish on the nose - solid grain malt, pretty heavy resin and dry leafy bitterness, a bit of an alcohol burn - nice balance, if big (7+). Taste - same, but tons of fruit, and even maltier than expected - big, grainy, boozy - and dry. Average body, a bit syrupy, mildly carbonated -a fairly boozy long finish. I have had the bottle for a while, it has stood up nicely. wtcecil (2) - Greensboro, North Carolina, USA - SEP 4, 2011 does not count
Bottled as a bomber. Served in a pint glass.
Appearance: Medium amber color, 1/2 inch off-white foam head, decent lacing
Taste: fairly harsh alcohol taste, not too bitter, somewhat sweet.
Palate: Medium/thick mouth feel
Overall: Good Beer, only complaint was the stronger-than-expected alcohol taste. A relatively inexpensive & good tasting Double IPA though. stangger (619) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 2, 2011
Bottle at Uno’s in Neshaminy. Remember very little, except that the alcohol is more noticeable than the commercial description suggests. phaleslu (10271) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 22, 2011
Pint from The Lackman in Cincinnati. Pours a cloudy deep orange color with a small off-white ring. Tons of fruit in this- grapefruit, orange, melon, pineapple- with caramel malts, pine resin, and some floral notes. Medium-bodied, with a chewy, fruity mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Big DIPA. Too much for my brother. I liked it. oh6gdx (26488) - Vasa, FINLAND - AUG 17, 2011

Golden amber colour with a small head. Aroma is fruits, some bready malts, mild sweet malts as well as some grassy notes. Flavour is quite much the same with also a bunch of toffeeish notes.
Bottle shared by TexasJeep. Pours a clear amber with an off-white head. Nose is of concentrated orange rind. Taste is of citrus which is overpowered by malt. Mouthfeel is resinous and bitter. decaturstevo (6244) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - AUG 5, 2011
Orange pour with off white head and lace. Bread and resiny aroma. Sweet caramel, resin, and abv. Medium full bodied with good carbonation. Nice beer. JFURYCAT (1078) - East Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 29, 2011
I’ve slated biscuit malt in the past but this one showed me how its used right as a backdrop for hoppy assertiveness which comes in the form of two of my favorite hops. But, I swear the hop quotient is more IPA than DIPA and the malts deliver the high abv. This one has a slightly tea-like finish to it which kind of dampers the exuberance. Picked this up at Chips in OBX. Blairgus (4613) - California, USA - JUL 20, 2011

On cask at Frisco Grille. Amber color with no head. Fruit and Citrus aroma. Caramel malt flavor with fruit notes. Citrus hop finish. Being on cask it was flatter than the bottled version.
