StefanSD (2429) - Ouray, Colorado, USA - FEB 17, 2012
650 ml bottle from bev4less. Pours a translucent light copper color with a small white head that slowly recedes to a film. The aroma is big and bold with oranges, clementines and grapefruit. The flavor is not nearly as citrusy as the nose would suggest, there is a good dose of pine in the forefront, with moderate oranges and grapefruit filling in the back end. The malt base was unremarkable from a flavor standpoint. Palate is full and silky with lively carbonation. Finishes long and dry with lingering bitter grapefruit and pine. Overall: The nose is first-rate, but the piney aspect of the flavor did not really grab me. The bitterness comes across as a bit harsh, that aside its a nice little DIPA.

Clear golden pour with a ring of clingy white that laces. Pine foremost on the nose and flavor with grapefruit rind coming in the finish to add a bitterness Im not overly fond of. Finish is dry with lingering rind aftertaste. Starts okay, finish is too biting.

Deep golden, slight haze with a big white head. Piney aroma with a bit of citrus. A little sweet and citrusy up front, nice balanced bitter finish. I find the 102 IBU hard to believe.

maekchu (3706) - Hirakata, JAPAN - FEB 5, 2017
Bomber from Whole Foods Market, Glendale CA. Very piney nose, with lots of citrus, lime juice, and very overripe grapefruit. Whew! Orange/amber color, some thick lace. Very resiny initial, thick caramel, considerable hop burn in mid palate, bitter citrus peel and citrus juice, with some sweet peach in late mid palate. Medium-heavy body. The pine and citrus really blast the sinuses. Quite a bit of hop burn and alc. warmth.

Super dank double ipa, like supa dupa dank. Smells amazing. Big tropical fruit, pine, and a big sticky resinous aroma. This thing is amazing smelling. Theres not an ounce of doubt theres a massive amount of columbus in it. Taste is huge tropical and pine. Theres some candied fruit and the hops just go bananas in it. Its super fresh and crushes all the weak feelings of the beers you had before it. Overall, awesome beer definitely recommended. Cheers.
