Draft at MBGSF07 (also again at Winter Solstice in08) from notes. Pours a hazy deep amber color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have big grapefruit citrus, some tropical fruit character as well, floral hops on the nose, moderate bitterness, some caramel, solid enough, could maybe use more bitterness.

On tap at the brewpub.
Aroma: Faint hoppiness, quite malty.
Appearance:Clear gold pour, white foam.
Flavors: Slight bitterness, rich malt. Not too good.
Palate: Full body and lively carbonation
Overall: Doesn’T seem like an American IPA to me ... tgncc (3145) - Bellmore, New York, USA - JUN 20, 2011
Aroma of floral hops. Flavor is the same. Yellow appearance, tinge of red. Floral hops on the finish as well. Pretty standard IPA. blipp (9713) - La Mesa, California, USA - MAY 18, 2011
Draft. Pours golden orange with a thin white head. The aroma has fruity citric hops and light piney notes. The flavor is fruity hoppy, almost candy-like, with light piney notes and sweet malts. Nice. Petkus331 (389) - Redford, Michigan, USA - SEP 1, 2010
This beer had a very floral nose and very light floral flavor. The color was light for an IPA. I find it hard to believe this is a Double IPA, it is very light even for a regular IPA. Overall it was enjoyable, but I’d rather reach for a Sierra Nevada IPA.

(Old BA rate - tap)
Poured with a thinner white head; clearer coppery orange hue. Lightly dank and fairly aggressive hoppiness that leans a bit to the West Coast; light malt sweetness in the aroma. Citrusy and piney at the same time almost; slight kiss of malt sweetness for balance but this clearly leans toward a hop-forward Midwest to West Coast DIPA. Lighter to medium; vibrant carbonation. Very drinkable for the style, and a lower abv than others. Awesome stuff. Leighton (22329) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 18, 2010
Tap at New Beer. Pours slightly cloudy orange with a sturdy white head. Emits plenty of pine and citrus hop aromas. Pretty well balanced flavor, with some caramel sweetness up front followed by grapefruit, resiney bitterness. Medium in body with strong carbonation and a semi-sticky finish. Very good. italarican (1606) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 17, 2010
Amber pour, headless. Pine hops are predominant in the nose, with a slight mix of caramel. Flavor is bitter hops with malt and caramel. Not that interesting, with too much one-dimensionality in the hops. amg800 (237) - Ada, Michigan, USA - MAY 10, 2010
From the tap. Hoppy citris aroma, sweet earthy taste. Poured a cloudy orange with white head. SrSilliGose (3332) - pouring bus, New Brunswick, CANADA - JAN 1, 2010
pours a clear orange with a white head. spotty lace. notes of grapefruit, pine, orangepeel. Pretty typical Ipa, but good, with a nice bitter citrusy bite to it. nice.
