Bottle. Lighter amber colour with a plenty of head. Lots of hops, some fruit flavours. Decent balance and flavour, but a pretty average DIPA.

rumproasts (6052) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JUN 13, 2014
bottle. Amber with one finger head. Medium malt body with a bit of sweetness and slight booze. Substantial hops. Well balanced, hoppy but not a hop bomb.

TheBeerGod (6263) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - JUN 7, 2014
Bottle - 1L crowned swing-top. Amber pour with a short tan head. Aroma is hoppy and floral but also rather grainy and bready with caramel notes. Taste is big caramel, toasted grains, sweet malt, graham crackers, floral hops, citrus notes and earthy hops. Touch of grass as well. Body is medium and slightly chewy with a soft, creamy carbonation. Mild lingering hop bitterness and light resinous feel as well. Ends with more grains, malt notes, toasted bread, caramel, floral hops, citrus notes, and earthy notes.

Braudog (6852) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - APR 30, 2014
Bottle, with a swing top. Pours a deep orange color, almost red. The head has significant volume, and holds steady. There’s really not any over the top aroma to report. This drinks with a firm and respectable wet hop character, earthen, chewy, well assembled. I like it ... and it comes in a giant bottle. (#5503, 4/30/2014)

3.2
Oakes (19031) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 25, 2014
Golden-amber, lots of woody hop and rich caramel malt, some abv coming out in the finish. A bit of diacetyl blasts out in the finish as well, unfortunately.

3.7
Ibrew2or3 (8860) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAR 19, 2014
1 liter swing top bottle pours with a clear deep copper body that supports a full tan head of foam. The aroma offers up pine hops, some cherry and raisins like dark fruity esters and then it gets into resiny bitter hops mixed with some grapefruit like citrus hoppiness. The taste delivers a mix of bitter pine hops, some dark fruity esters, some malts and then biscuit malts. To midway it picks up some pleasing citrus hops and then it heads into a mix of resiny pine hops, resiny bitter citrus and various modest malty notes. This is a little estery for the style but still enjoyable as the hops are thick and balanced.
