Pours a very light yellowish gold, extremely clear with a light cap of off white head. Aroma is quite floral, lemony hops. Taste is vibrantly hoppy, wonderfully fresh. Extremely layered hop notes of lemon, citrus, resinous. Malt punches through the hop assault near the finish. Beautiful beer and the alcohol, though slightly warming, is not overwhelming and well integrated.

Theydon_Bois (18686) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAY 3, 2014
Bottle at home, from the Best Damn Beer Shop, 03/05/14. Almost clear golden amber with a moderate off white head that stays for the show. Nose is bitter hops, pine, caramel malt, orange pith, tangerine. Taste comprises caramel malt, bitter hops, grapefruit, dank tones, pine bite, boozey punch, light perfumed notes. Fullish body, fine carbonation, semi aggressive hop bitterness in the close laced with booze. Ok DIPA but not to draw, just a little overly boozey, the 11% is pretty evident.

On tap at Taps in Petaluma. Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a bit of head. Strong hoppiness that lingers. Nice creaminess to the flavor.

Bottle, huge thanks to Charles for sharing!! Beautiful clear amber pour with an average-sized frothy white head. Nose and flavor have a surprisingly amount of caramel and even a touch of buttery diacetyl present; thought it would have held up slightly better at only 7 weeks old. You can definitely feel the big lemon and dank evergreen there, but its a bit masked. Alas, the problem with getting well-reputed West Coast beers on the East Coast....

Dr_Fellini (1020) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - APR 1, 2014
Bottle to glass. Not sure how fresh it is. Pours a clear golden light copper color with a thin light tan head. Aroma is caramel malts, lots of fleshy fruit hops, and that classic smell when a high gravity hoppy beer sits too long. Probably not the beers fault, but more so on the store selling it. Flavor is moderately bitter, with a light fruity sweetness. Medium body with a lingering bitterness. Tasty, but would definitely be better fresh.

Zymurgeist2 (2133) - Redwood City, California, USA - MAR 26, 2014
On tap at Harrys Hofbrau. Massive grapefruit, pine and resin on nose. Grapefruit is bright and beautiful. Pours a clear light gold with a white head that leaves quickly. Only a collar and slight webbing remain. Flavor is mostly pine and resin. Slight dank. Cracker-like malt supports well with nice residual sweetness. Finishes dry. Moderate high bitterness, but not overly so as can happen with this style.

Bottle to ipa glass. Dark subdued burnt orange pour with a thick white head that laces a bit. Nose is very citrus and sweet malt. The booze is apparent. Taste is malty sweetness up front with a bitter booze grapefruit and orange hop finish.

Holly S&@$! In-your-face XXX IPA! The Tequila shot of IPAs. Very strong pine, some citrous first sniff, more moderate later. Poured with moderate head, expected more with such high hops. Amber color, low haze. Taste is hops all the way, I think I taste some sweetness of caramel, but all I can think of is swimming in a big pile of hops! Very tangible body, very warm after taste. Gulps made my eyes tear and mouth pucker! A beer for sipping, maybe the ceiling for hop heads like me. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
