Cloudy orange with a finger of white head. Big citrus nose, orange grapefruit, mango, pineapple, pine, slight floral note. Taste is just like the nose. No alcohol detectable. Fantastic DIPA, right in my wheelhouse. mcox90 (2161) - Wilton, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 23, 2014
First off, A big shout out to my man WillRunForBeer, for picking this up at the Farmers Market for me. 22 oz. bottle. Pours a slightly hazed yellow orange with a one finger white head. Sharp pine resin and tropical fruit aroma. Oranges, mangos and peaches. Flavor has a tropical fruit sweetness about it backed by a good biscuit malt base. It’s the closest thing I’ve to sunshine in a bottle. Outstanding! veronneaupy (241) - Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 6, 2014
Au nez, les bonbons aux pêches et les fruits tropicaux plein nez! En bouche, un goût agréable de fruits, sucre, résine et de torchon a vaisselle! La finale est amère, résineuse et sèche. La dégustation est un bonheur. Une des meilleures que j'ai bu!

floral, citrus, herbs, tropical fruits, golden, clear, white foam, rocky head, light sweetness, very bitter, thin feel, oily feel, flat, soft carbonation, long finish, bitter, Garrold (5852) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 11, 2015
Bomber, picked up at Craft Beer Cellar, Waterbury, and shared, at home, with the missus. Hazy, dark, orangey gold. Bubbly, messy, sticky, white head. A bit leggy. Looks great. Nose is orange marmalade on buttered toast, apparently. I can’t disagree. There’s also tinned peach and pear, for me. Ripe strawberry. Melon. Smells fantastic. Taste is chewy sweet. Robust, fruity, resinous bitter. Feels rich, silky, oily, and hop oil juicy. Stupidly easy drinking. Finishes long, juicy, resinous bitter, with a lasting sweetness on the lips. It’s a bit of a big hitter, this. A stunner.

Bottle @ home on my son’s first birthday March 14th 2016. Lightly hazy orange golden color, medium to full sized white head that lasts for a decent while. Superb hoppy aroma with tropical fruits and a slight floral note. Fantastic aroma, although it has more of an IPA character to me than an Imperial IPA, I would have loved a little pine and resin in there. Nontheless abdolutely lovely. Tastes light to moderately malty, again loads of hops dominating the initial flavor, fortunately some resin amidst the tropical fruit hops. Nice mix of fruity hop bitter and malt bitterness in the finish. Medium body and carbonation. Absolutely delicious! puzzl (3264) - New York, New York, USA - FEB 8, 2011
UPDATED: FEB 23, 2011 Bottle during the Superbowl; I apologize for the brief notes. This is a fantastic IPA, bursting with fresh, juicy hops. Very tropical rather than citric, with great balancing bitterness. Perfectly dry. Acquire at any cost. Wish I had a case of this to drink for myself.

Holy smokes. Super potent big juicy grapefruit. A bit resiny. Super juicy, hop forward. Touch of tangerine sweetness. Dry. Touch of alcohol, but not boozy by any means. Awesome awesome iipa. Big beautiful juicy hops. chibuck (3521) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 26, 2011
Props to Chris for this super fresh bottle, batch 192, bottle # 117... Pours a murky light gold, dark in the middle, a little ugly. A nice white head, great retention and lacing... The aroma is fantastic, so fresh, just plucked pine needles with pineapples and an assortment of tropical fruits... Taste is equally great, bitting pine and alcohol of a dipa, but muted and so drinkable. This is awesome, must try. Ernesto987 (6050) - Arizona, USA - NOV 19, 2011
UPDATED: JAN 21, 2012 On tap, big hop flavors, tons if citra. Not very bitter, mango and tropical flavors. Did not except this to rock this much.
