Twelve ounce bottle from Food N Fermentation. This pours hazed coppery with a decent fluffy beige head. A big caramel aroma with fruit and pine. An interesting earthiness too. This beer has a huge malt profile with citrus and pine hops a little behind. I taste some bready yeast. It has plenty of sweetness and maybe a little too much. A decent brew.

Pours a slight-hazed golden in color with a well-built white head. Fruity-citrus hop aroma. Full-bodied with a floral, light piney hop dominance that lingers nicely. Pretty good for the price.

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - JAN 21, 2013
Can. Very cloudy amber/orange with a huge foamy head that lingers around for a while to form rocky peaks. Aroma of sweet citrus peel, tropical fruit, pine and herbal tea. Flavor of sweet malt and oranges, rough hop bitterness and a well hidden alcohol. This is a very odd beer, lots of sweet citrus and malt with a weird abrasive hop presence.

Beerdrinker79 (2156) - Idaho, USA - JAN 18, 2013
12 oz. can- Pours hazy orange with a one finger creamy off white head. Aroma is hops and malt, somewhat resinous. The taste is overly malty for an IPA, there is a hop presence, but way too much malt, caramel malt and IPA should not be used in the same sentence in my opinion. It isnt horrible, but not for me.

nuplastikk (6056) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 11, 2013
12oz can. Here is a pretty shabbily executed IIPA. Burnt oily hop flavor, really kind of vegetal, bad. Attractive enough appeaance, glowing amber-orange with a frothy yet creay just off-white head The aroma is bad, think Minhas IIPA. Soapy and astringent, really has a dominating oily residue. Tweaker IIPA.

Draft: I have two rules for drinking beers, 1) drink local and 2) always try something new. This one is brutal on the alcohol presence, needs a lot of balance. Food Pairing: Strong, stinky cheese.

poisoneddwarf (2449) - Coeur d Alene, Idaho, USA - DEC 28, 2012
12 oz can. Pours hazy orange with a thick cream-colored head with great retention. Aroma is packed full of caramel malt and a hint of cooked vegetables. Smells too malty. Taste starts out sweet before a big bitterness sets in. No hop flavors, just bitterness. Not a fan of malty IPAs like this.

alexanderj (3602) - Branson, Missouri, USA - DEC 25, 2012
Bottle; poured a murky/hazy/cloudy golden/amber/orange color with an off white/khaki head. Aroma of sweet chewy malt, alcohol, and a bit of earth. Not very hoppy for the style. Flavor had alot of sweetness, caramel and some very ripe fruit. Hops were again subdued. Tastes almost more like a barley wine than a double IPA. drinkable, yet disappointing.

12 oz. can from Total Wine - Pours a hazy amber color with a two finger thick off white head. Light lacing. Aroma is toasted malt. Did I mention the aroma is toasted malt. Wheres the hops? This is a 2IPA, correct? Maybe I got a old can? The flavor isnt any better. The finish is fairly smooth and has a hint of pineapple. Medium body. Alcohol is fairly well hidden. The beer isnt bad, its just not a 2IPA. NO HOPS!

Ibrew2or3 (8458) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - NOV 17, 2012
12oz can pours clear copper with tall tan head of foam. The aroma offers up resiny hops, pine hops and thin hints of thick sweet maltiness off in the background. The taste begins with a hit of booze and resiny bitter pine hops before it moves into more hop flavor and still firm hop bitterness with grapefruit and lemon peel notes. Behind all of the hops is a bit of sweet malts that create nice base for this big somewhat boozy resiny bitter beer. All in all this is pretty darn good for the style.
