mcberko (15436) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 17, 2012
750mL bottle, sent from Glouglouburp (thanks Dany!), pours a cloudy orangey yellow with a medium white head. Aroma is very piney and floral hop-heavy, with truckloads of piney hops and balanced doughy malt to back. Flavour begins exceedingly piney, with loads of resinous and floral hops as well, some citrus and grapefruity in there as well. The malt backing isnt obvious from the flavour, but the palate is quite thick and chewy for a Double IPA. Finishes dry, with loads of piney and some herbal (a bit pot-like) hops. Absolutely beautiful.

Tmoney99 (13910) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 30, 2012
Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured hazy golden copper color with an average to large frothy off-white head that was mostly lasting with excellent lacing. Medium to heavy complex floral hop aroma. Medium to full body with slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy smooth bittersweet herbal flavor with a medium to heavy complex bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. This is a standout beer.

Sammy (11516) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 3, 2012
UPDATED: APR 18, 2016 Capping bottle, or half a growler. Cloudy orange colour, lots of lace. Hoppy, fresh and citrus aroma. Above average mouthfeel, but hop pellet bitterness. Raw and not the greatest drinkability. Dissapointing experience. I was even more disapointed when having it again from growler 4 years later.
