Great double IPA. High in alcohol content at 9% but when you taste it, it does not taste like 9%. Great find, a different tasted from the tower 10 IPA but they are both great. jjgmd (2248) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - MAR 6, 2013
Pours a golden rusty yellow color. Nose is citrus and hops, sweet and pleasant. Taste is bitter sweet and full of citrus. Finishbis bitter sweet as well, and finishes on the same citrus notes. Excellent DIPA ! Quaff Score 8 / 10 BrownALEx (459) - Portland, Michigan, USA - SEP 29, 2013
Big thanks to Paulie T. for this one. Rated from memory during the Michigan vs. UConn game. Wow did that not go the way it was supposed to. Nice hoppy aroma. Pours a brilliant dark amber with a thick white head. Taste is rather malty, some alcohol comes through as well. This is a beer you will want to try if you can get your hands on it. viyh (90) - San Luis Obispo, California, USA - OCT 17, 2013
Really tasty beer! This IPA is fruity and piney, and for 90 IBUs, it only seems like 50. Really smooth and hints of pineapple, apple cider, and a bit on the sweet side. I highly recommend this one! Karol (949) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JUN 29, 2014
20oz bottled I shared with my good firiend and a hop addict from San Diego, Paul, at Karl Strauss at the Universal Studios. It was my last beer at the end of my L.A. Visit. Aroma of citrus, malt, some alcohol. Color was shiny golden yellow. Taste citrus, bitter hops, malt backbone. Alcohol present but smartly hidden. Overall a great fresh and hoppy DIPA with more hops and less malt. I like that.

Bottle. Copper colour with white head. Tropical frutis, pineapple, caramel aroma. Sweet, caramel, malt, tropical fruits, pineapple, resinous taste. Medium to full body. Fashawn (604) - ITALY - MAY 21, 2015
Aroma molto citrico, con il luppolo in prima linea. Arancio,pompelmo, un po’ di caramello. Non è freschissima al naso, la birra ha sei mesi e si avvertono. È oro carico, con velature arancia. Buona schiuma,molto bella. Dolce con caramello, arancia,pompelmo. Non ha un cattivo sapore. Fiori di arancia, ritorno di frutta fresca percettibile. Finale citrico,ancora buono. Non è invecchiata male, ha un ottimo bilanciamento. Liscia, calda sul finale senza stancare. È una ottima bevuta, di quelle che slddisfano. Retrogusto carico, corpo pieno, finale lungo. Molto ben fatta. rlgk (18844) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - NOV 4, 2015
