Rated in 2010 (Backlog) - Amber in color with a small off-white head. Aroma is of caramel, tropical fruits and citrus. Taste is of tropical fruits, caramel, citrus and grass.

Thanks to Wittales in the local 3.14 swap. Pours a clear golden orange from the can with bubbly off-white head that dissipates to leave moderate lace. Aroma is light, but resinous citrus from the heavy cascade and a faint sweet maltiness. Taste is bigger, but a hint of soapy middle, bitterness takes over and lingers. Soft carbonation, good balance, minimal booziness, not bad.

Cavie (4654) - Arlington, Texas, USA - OCT 4, 2010
Bottle courtesy of pikapp327. Pours a very murky ruddy brown with some sediment present. Foamy head that took a bit of coaxing to get a rise. Aroma is very sappy, sticky hops. Lots of resiny notes on this one. Flavor is woody and aged, with bitter hops that leave a dry aftertaste. Lots of exciting flavors with an aftertaste that lingers forever.

Pours hazy dark orange. A very grapefruity aroma, almost overpowering and not fresh. The flavor is dominated by the hops, perhaps too much. There is a distinct bitterness that tapers off toward the end leaving a pleasant, mellow dryness on the back of the tongue. This is its most redeeming quality.

Blairgus (4536) - California, USA - JUN 15, 2012
15 June 2012. Can. Gold, clear, no bubbles. Nose is sweet orange juice, barley winish, Carmelized syrup. Med body and slightly fizzy. Faintly yeasty, lots of sweet sugar, faint bitter finish. Great all around. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Golden beer with a sticky white head. Big thick hop resin nose. Strong caramel malt backbone with grapefruit rind and apricot hop flavors. There is a long pinching bitter finish. Nice IIPA.

VsXsV (4419) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 10, 2012
Bottle. Clear amber liquid with medium off-white head. Aroma is maybe a bit stale but has notes of grapefruit, mango, citrus, caramel and blackberries. Quite fresh aroma with a nicely malty backbone. Taste is light sweet and medium to high bitter with notes of grass, caramel and biscuit. Medium bodied with a bit high carbonation. OK DIPA, especially for the price ($4).

maxwelldeux (4374) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - JUL 14, 2014
Can. Pours a clear copper color with a moderate off-white head on there. Nose is a little more resiny than I usually find with the IPA family, but pleasant nonetheless; just a hint at some caramel in the end. Taste is quite bitter, but still very drinkable and light. Hides the 9.3% quite well, methinks.

jandd1983 (4276) - Wentzville, Missouri, USA - AUG 5, 2013
It poured a hazy copper color with an off-white head. The aroma was of moderate earthy hoppiness and sweet maltiness. The taste was similar with soft carbonation and a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Nicely done.

3.7
shoulderbroken (4255) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JUL 26, 2015
Can. Aroma is alright, fruity. Light tropical and citrus, bit grassy. Taste is less exciting, not much flavour, pine, not much else. Alright though.
